It comes with an 18:9 aspect ratio which makes it look tall much like the other smartphones.

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.

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.

Hardware and Software

Things are a little bit different here from the normal one SoC smartphone because there are two variants in terms of chipset. There’s one having a Qualcomm SDM630 Snapdragon 630 processor combined with an Adreno 508 GPU while the other has a Qualcomm MSM8937 Snapdragon 430 and a corresponding Adreno 505 GPU. Both SoCs  are Octa-core and the former clocks at 2.2GHz max while the other at 1.4GHz max.

Also, you either have a 3GB or 4GB RAM on the Asus Zenfone 5 Lite as well as a 32GB or 64GB internal storage space. However, both gives a chance to expand storage using a memory card of up to 400GB. Asus Zenfone 5 Lite will be shipping with the Android 8.0 Oreo with their own UI on top.
