Weighing just 145g, the Zenfone 5 comes loaded with 1 GB RAM, 2 GB internal memory and support for MicroSD card (up to 64 GB). Buyers also get access to free 5 GB lifetime ASUS WebStorage.

The rear camera is a 8 megapixel with Auto Focus, LED Flash, F2.0 Aperture and PixelMaster, whereas the front one is a decent 2 megapixel. PixelMaster is a unique ASUS-developed technology that combines software, hardware and optical design to deliver incredible image quality. PixelMaster offers good low-light performance and shake-free high resolution photos. In fact, with the Time Rewind feature, the PixelMaster camera automatically starts recording images two seconds before and one second after pressing the shutter button.

That pretty much sums up the entire look at the Asus Zenfone 5 specs. The Zenfone 5 is likely to be priced at around Rs. 15,000 in India. We would love to know your thoughts on the Asus ZenUI, PixelMaster and the overall features of the new android smartphone. Share with us in comments below.

@Ankita Katdare • 02 Jul, 2014 Looks like Zenfone is becoming quite the talk of town. Found two passers by discussing phones from Asus on the bus last day.
@Harshad Italiya • 10 Jul, 2014 I am planning to purchase one. Not sure about the hardware quality.
@Sanyam Khurana • 02 Aug, 2014 Well, I got a special press invite of the launch event of Zenfone in Delhi 😀

Tested them, and I must say, they're really awesome. Specially the camera it's just superb considering the price point of the phone. Though I think Zenfone 6 is slightly over-priced considering the price of Zenfone4 and Zenfone5, but these phones looked promising to me.

Even I'm looking to buy one. Tested them, they were really satisfactory, but now due to many phones coming up, I'm thinking to wait for this Diwali to get the best phone available at the best price.
