Design and Display

Unlike the other Zenfone series smartphone released this year, the Asus Zenfone 5 Lite is ditching the notch and father featuring a reduce bezel at the top. It comes with an 18:9 aspect ratio which makes it look tall much like the other smartphones. The Asus Zenfone 5 Lite is built with an aluminium casing which looks premium and will definitely feel premium when held.

It also retains the FHD+ display seen in its other Zenfone models, however, they are different in size from each other with the Asus Zenfone 5 Lite being the smallest. Although, it still measure up to a whopping 6.0-inch which is by today’s standards a fairly large display. Featuring a 2160 x 1080 pixels display with a pixel density of 403 ppi and a brightness of about 500 nits.

Battery and Camera

There is a reduction in battery capacity by 300mAh moving from the Zenfone 5 and 5Z to this smartphone. While this is not much, the battery of the Asus Zenfone 5 Lite can only be regarded as average with a life span of just about a day on a full charge. The 3, 000mAh Li-ion battery supports quick charge from Qualcomm which means full charge in no time.

The camera setup on the Asus Zenfone 5 Lite is impressive, having a Quad camera is not a common feature in smartphones at the moment. You have a dual camera consisting of a 16MP sensor combined with an 8MP wide angle lens for more detail nudged into the rear panel. Same goes for the for the selfie camera too as you have a dual combination of a 20MP sensor, wide angle 8MP camera having a 120° field of view (FOV) and a LED flash.
