IPhone X vs Asus Zenfone 5: The Doppelgangers

| 01 March, 2018, 13:03

Taking a page out of the iPhone X playbook, Asus has designed the ZenFone to have a near edge-to-edge display. Asus uses something called AI Display to keep the screen on while you're looking at it and to adjust its color temperature based on the lighting in whatever environment you're in. The phone will be a dual sim phone and will launch running Android version Oreo with Asus ZenUI 5.0 on top of that. Both phones have a 19:8 screen ratio with a 6.2-inch full HD+ display.

LG's V30S ThinQSouth Korea's LG eschewed the notch for the all-screen model it introduced at MWC, the V30S ThinQ, where it also discussed a new smartphone strategy focusing on device audio, battery, camera and display. The device runs on an Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box with the new ZenUI 5.0. The Zenfone 5 comes with 4 or 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. Oddly ASUS has not yet given MP size on the second of each of these camera combinations.

Dual-lens combining 12-megapixel f1.8 Sony 363, 6 element lens with secondary 8-megapixel f2.0 wide angle rear. Connectivity features include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, NFC and GPS/A-GPS.

■ The ZenFone 5Z comes with a 3,300mAh battery, which on paper looks at par with the 3,500mAh battery inside the Galaxy S9+ and the 3,180mAh battery that powers the Xperia XZ2. There is no official details on pricing but the company confirmed that it will be available starting April this year.

Asus will be shipping three variations of the Zenfone 5Z. Rest of everything stays the same as of Zenfone 5Z. The 5 has a Snapdragon 636 and Adreno 509 GPU with "AI capabilities and AI Boost". Two versions of this device include 3GB RAM/ 32GB internal storage and 4GB RAM/ 64GB internal storage. Of course, there will be an expansion option also available on the device to expand the memory of the device.


■ The smartphone has a glass back design similar to the iPhone X, but it doesn't support wireless charging. For selfies, the Zenfone 5 Lite sports a 20MP primary sensor and wide-angle secondary sensor. Both the ZenFone 5 lineup smartphones more or less come with nearly the same specifications, apart from some hardware change here and there. The other variant comes with a more powerful Snapdragon 630 SoC ticking at 2.2GHz.

It packs four cameras, two of them with a 120-degree wide-angle field-of-view, one on each side.

The camera also comes with AI scene detection that can identify up to 16 different scenes and objects such as lakes, animals, sunsets, plants (flowers) and humans. The smartphone has sharp shots courtesy 3-axis sensor. You also get a 20-megapixel front-facing shooter with Sony IMX376 sensor, f/2.0 aperture. The camera and other apps were quick and responsive, and it took excellent pictures - albeit not quite as good as the ZenFone 5. You can also choose the lower variants, which come with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM. The front facing camera also sports a spotlight LED Flash light.

The battery on both the smartphones have a capacity of 3300mAh, this in sync with the battery optimizations being offered help pull the device battery backup to impressive levels.

The Asus ZenFone 5 Lite smartphone comes with company's own Face Unlock feature.
