Asus ZenFone 5 review

by James Norton |
A large bright and sharp screen with super fast touch response makes the ZenFone 5 excellent in all conditions.
The flash on the ZenFone 5 is quite weak and doesn't produce a wide enough light spread to be all that useful but it will do in a pinch.
The Asus Extended Easy Mode will now feature contacts, call log, dialer and messaging apps adapt for better readability.
The Camera will also see an improvement with an automatic image stabilization.
