ASUS: Zenphone 5

  • ASUS’ ZenFone 5 stretches the limits of the term ‘AI’

    As expected, ASUS officially revealed its new ZenFone 5 in Barcelona today, and if you don't mind I'm going to skip my usual meandering intro. The company talked up a handful of AI features in its latest midrange smartphone, but I think ASUS is throwing around the word "AI" haphazardly. More on that later though: Let's get the usual hands-on stuff out of the way first.
    Yes, with its notched 6.2-inch screen and its vertically mounted dual camera, the ZenFone 5 looks quite a bit like an iPhone. (Just, you know, bigger and with a striking finish on its rear.) The 19:( screen is particularly nice (and that's not a typo): Colors appear much brighter and punchier than I had hoped, and it's longer than the standard 18:9 displays so videos played at full resolution aren't obscured by the notch. All told, generally a pleasure to gaze at, as long as you're not looking for a super high-resolution panel.


  • Has anyone even managed to get their hands on the ZenFone 4 yet?
