What is Advantage of Asus Zenfone 4 or Asus Zenfone 5 or Asus Zenfone 6?

This phone price is cheap with some color options for good quality body, we can choose 5 kind of colors like Charcoal Black, Pearl White, Cherry Red, Sky Blue, Solar Yellow also Twilight Purple. Speaking of the body, the LCD also have good point for these phones because they use Gorilla Glass 3 protections, so the LCD glass more strong enough to use without any other screen glass protections.

The other interesting and advantage of Asus Zenfone 4 or Asus Zenfone 5 or Asus Zenfone 6 is each of them have dual simcard GSM slot. The dual slot GSM simcard which are standby together. When we are receiving phone at GSM1, we still can receive GSM2, but we should hold down the conversation of GSM1 while we want to answer GSM2.

Memory advantage at Asus Zenfone 4 or Asus Zenfone 5 or Asus Zenfone 6 have good internal/external memory and RAM specifications at their class. The lowers specification at Asus Zenfone 4 have 1GB RAM with option 4 or 8 GB internal memory. We also can expand the external memory up to 64GB. Usually the low price phone only have maximum 32GB external memory.

Some user use their phone to play games and the strength for playing HD Game is the capability of GPU (Graphic Processor Unit). All of these Asus Zenfone already have GPU to support playing HD Games without problem. The Asus Zenfone 4 have PowerVR GPU with 300Mhz , Asus Zenfone 5 have PowerVR GPU at 400Mhz and Asus Zenfone 6 have PowerVR GPU at 533Mhz.


What is the Disadvantage and weakness of ASUS ZENFONE 4 / ZENFONE 5 / ZENFONE 6 ?

The drawback of  each Asus Zenfone are vary depend on the spec and prices. Asus Zenfone 4 will have the lowest specification if compare by Asus Zenfone 6, but some users maybe does not like to use 6 inches smartphone because the body size is too big, then we can choose Asus Zenfone 5 with better specification then Asus Zenfone 4.

For camera lover who would like to take more pictures, there is a drawback of Asus Zenfone 4 camera, because this phone does not have light flash to help us take better pictures in low light conditions. However, Asus Zenfone 5 and Asus Zenfone 6 already have build in light flash for the main camera.

The disadvantages of Asus Zenfone 5 (also at other Zenfone 4 and 6) about no light at soft button bellow the LCD screen. As we know, Android have minimum 3 button bellow the LCD for navigate and back to home. This is also available at ASUS ZENFONE, our Asus Zenfone 5 soft button is not light up (does not have light) although we use it at dark area. But unfortunately this situations does not make problem because Asus Zenfone have 3 button like other Android standard phone, and after use 1 or 2 days, we will know where is Back Button, where is Home button and where is menu button without need to see the picture or icon anymore.

The drawback of Asus Zenfone 5 LCD frame is too much, the bigger LCD frame will make the body of Asus Zenfone become much more bigger, we just wish the body more smaller if Asus make the LCD frame not too big, but anyway the body design still looking good although the body little bit bigger for 5 inches smartphone.

With more kind of Android smartphone at market today, we have several options to choose, base by the specifications and the price as well. However, having Asus Zenfone family is interesting options especially with Asus Zenfone 5 or 6, because if we compare between price and specifications, than it will hard to find other brand with Zenfone price level.
