  1. In indonesia this smartphones is very high specification in idol since at a low price. unfortunately many buyers are not supported abundant stock of asus. #sorry if my english learn is very bad 😀

    • Yeah, fist of all, you should not be sorry if you think you are not good at English, though you are.
      And yes this smartphone seems to be like a revolution in android and smartphone industries. We just hope that ASUS keeps the price low as you have in Indonesia. 🙂

  2. We also agree that it could be a trend setter and may turn out as a big competition to the smartphone giants like Samsung that brag about the specs but their underlying performance is below the mark for such high prices.

    • Exactly, even I’ve used the top most brands like HTC, but kinda features ASUS provides in such price is really commendable and will bring revolution for sure 🙂

    • You are most welcome, the phone is indeed amazing, but if you are a gamer, the phone might not be for you… as many users who played heavy games are a bit satisfied. You may wait for their next update.

    • Hello Abu, ASUS zenfone 5 is great at processing, music quality and multitasking because of its processor and 2 GB RAM. If you talk about games, a couple of my friends who are game lovers, did not like it and if you are a gaming freak, i would not recommend you to go with it as the phone was not up to the mark with gaming. Besides all, the specifications, UI and performance of this smartphone is better then any in this segment. It even overlapped Apple in the friction level of touch (Mentioned by ASUS CEO during Launch). ASUS Zenfone 5 is amazing, just lacks with gaming. 🙂
