Smartphone Asus - brand quality + "Android"
With a general decline in prices for the Internet andthe emergence of smartphones, some companies that made a name for the production of computer components, switched part of the power to the production of smart phones, in the hope of winning this sector. The well-known brand Asus went the same way. Smartphone 5, or ZenFone 5, as it was called by the developers - the representative of the first line, with 5 in the title indicates the diagonal of the screen. The first generation of smartphones Asus has only 3 models - with a screen of 4, 5, 6 inches. Accordingly, the model ZenFone 4 - ZenFone 6.
Distinctive features of Zen ...
Any smartphone user will say that"Android" "weighs" about 2 gigabytes, and if the device has a player and a camera (and which modern device does not have them?), You can not do without a memory card. The Asus smartphone did not argue with this - support for memory cards up to 64 GB in any model is available, but in addition there are 16 (!!!) GB of internal memory on board - 4 of them are occupied by system applications, and the rest of the space is available to the user. If you take a DVD for comparison, the user will be able to cast about 3 full music discs. This is if we consider model 5, with which we began this review. The second-generation lines have only the larger size of the declared memory. And although the first generation is marked as a budget option - the look of ZenFone 5 looks very stylish.
Quality Asus played here not the last role. Dense adjustment of parts, a good selection of colors - all this can be attributed to the merits. It should be noted that the "fingers" on the phone still remain, but are easily removed. From the design of Zen, the device also received a decorative metal overlay in the lower part of the front panel, which has a relief pattern from the circles. The lock and volume buttons that are placed on the left side panel repeat this picture. The volume button - as in most modern models - is one-piece, operates on the principle of a rocker.
"Two" is not a diagonal. This generation
Smartphone Asus 2 generation did not get 2 inches, likeYou should expect. The screen still has 5 inches, but the resolution, memory capacity and some other characteristics have grown even more than 2 times. The new Zen has 4 GB of RAM, 32 (and in older versions and 64) GB of user memory, while you can use external cards. In place there was a panel at the bottom of the front cover, a lock button, on which, as in the first generations, a pattern of circles was applied. But the button of the rocker was ... on the back. Thus, the back panel has a slightly recessed chamber (13 Mp), just below the flash (it has become two-color), and even lower - a standard rocker.
Below them, like the first models, the logos of "Asus", ""Intel", and the name of the model. The new model received a 4-core processor and a screen with support up to FullHD size up to 1920x1080. The software stuffing already includes Android 5, on top of which its own development of ZenUI is installed.
External data and equipment
Smartphone Asus, that the first generation thatthe second, despite the growth of performance, characteristics and other parameters, still remains a "heavyweight" in the physical plan. The 5-inch screen, as written in some reviews, occupies only 70% of the front side. At the same time, the body, made in the form of a boat, does not diminish the phone when viewed from the side. At the widest part, the thickness reaches 11 mm. And the most serious minus, which can alienate the buyer - the Asus smartphone does not have a removable battery. And this lack of the first generation is not corrected in the second. Has a removable back cover, slots under microsim (reduced simka) and a memory card, but there is no possibility to replace the battery. Also to the cons are the weight of the device. Similar models of other brands are winning by weight.
The complete set of the device is completely in the style of "Asus" -in the box with the phone there are even headphones. As in other smarts, the cable for connecting to a computer is standard - on the one hand MicroUSB, with another standard 2.0. The charger is made by a separate unit, which is connected to the same 2.0. One of the chips of phones from this brand is the ability to quickly charge, and the brand-name device can charge the battery up to 60% in less than an hour.
And what do users say about Asus smartphones? Reviews in general are positive. Of course, the weight of the device is often mentioned. The obvious advantage is called the camera, which is the model of the first, which is the second generation. Interesting opinions about the price. The quality is not worse than the top models, while the price is much lower. An obvious advantage is called the opportunity to find a cover. Although opinions about the need for this were divided - someone notes the "polished metal" of the back cover, not reacting to the "fingers", but at the same time there is a general march.
Interesting views of the beautiful half of humanity about smartphones Asus. Reviews all as one positive, however, sometimes there is a non-removable battery and one or two days of work without charging.
The photo above is for closing the topic of reviews. As it is written in the response, it was filmed "in conditions of insufficient illumination" by night mode. Pictures of this quality will not be obtained on every digital soap box.
Unlike many other "smart" phones,the smartphone Asus, despite some shortcomings, is able to give odds to many top versions of other brands. And at a lower price has such characteristics, to which eminent brands for a long time to drag on.
