For the right price this device would be ok, like the Lenovo Z5 that is almost identical but for only 60% of the price. The Zenfone 5 is an expensive mid-range with an appealing design but nothing more.
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2018Don't forget Pocophone doesn't have NFCAnd HD video streaming support.
Have had the Asus Zenfone 5 for a week now, within hours the screen had cracked. Not from dropping it, but simply placing it on a marble countertop face down. The worst phone signal reception I've ever heard, I literally only hear every other vowel of anyone I try to speak with. Firefox seems slower to load than my previous phone. Considering reverting back to my Oneplus 3 that has been through so much abuse w/o any sign of wear on the screen and researching other phones.
Any advice to salvage my purchase of Asus Zenfone 5?
i think zenfone 5 is better than pocophone . zenfone got a stylish design , good display ,better camera , ois for video recording , better low light photo shooting capability , video recording on 60 fps at 1080p . if you are not buying phone for gaming then i think zenfone 5 is a better choice . you know pocophone only got face unlock at low light and snapdragon 845 . Other components are cheap that installed in pocophone than zenfone 5 .
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2018should I consider asus zenfone 5 or the new pocophone f1 by xiaomiPeople would say get the pocophone f1 is better but to be fair
the Zenfone 5 got better display, audio and have ai technology.
The 636 chip should be alright if you are not a gamer. The choice is up to you
Kiro Ro, 29 Aug 2018That is very disappointing. Asus should fix this. What can ASUS do if that game is a crap?
Save your important data,
make a factory reset
and do not install as many crappy apps!

Kiro Ro, 13 Aug 2018My friends told me about the signal problem issue. They were Asus zenfone user before Zenfone ... moreUpdate: signal dropping is more obvious now. Cant even load youtube, not all the time, but very frequent. I've compared it wth my gfs lg stylus 2 and im shookt. Lg loads youtube faster, browse faster, buffering? No smooth and really good in the same room, heck i cant even google search sometimes in my asus z 5.. The taskbar says i have internet connection but it just wont load anything at all. 😭😭
Disappointing it is. Hope asus rolls out update for this sooner.
ryu, 26 Aug 2018Is the display a little warmer like yellowish? And no blue light is not turned on Hi,
Check splendid app to see screen color temp settings.
Display may be cold colour, no yellow, and nice white! Asus Zenfone 5' display is the most beautiful IPS in the World! Blu light is in the telephone.
