The ASUS ZenFone 5Q Smartphone s a versatile combination that combines a great appearance, good technical characteristics, and a very nice price. Despite not the highest cost, the manufacturer installed here the newest Sony IMX363 sensor, decent high-aperture optics with f / 1.8 aperture and four-axis optical stabilization. In addition, the staff added another main camera for panoramic shooting at 120 degrees. Appeared various intellectual modes of scene definition and the ability to save photos in the “raw” format RAW.
After producing a string of uninspired, cookie-cutter smartphones, Asus appears to have updated its template. The ZenFone 5Q isn’t an eye-catching device by any means, but it’s inoffensive and gets the job done. And unlike the company’s previous efforts, it looks like a handset from this generation, with a large 18:9 display, respectably sized bezels and a mirrored glass back atop a sturdy polycarbonate frame. The rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is a smidge high and has a small diameter, but it unlocks quickly. The ZenFone 5Q doesn’t approach the Goldilocks size and shape of the $249 Moto G6, but like Motorola’s popular budget offering, it has NFC for Google Pay transactions as well as a headphone jack. So long as you’re not expecting the vividity of a flagship display, the ZenFone 5Q’s 6-inch, full-HD LCD screen compares solidly with those of rival devices, offering correct color reproduction, a wide gamut of hues and one of the brighter backlights we’ve seen in this category.
The ZenFone 5Q utilizes the same Snapdragon 630 chip found in the Nokia 6.1, but it combines it with 4GB of RAM rather than 3GB. That’s the best pairing of processor and memory you’re likely to find for $300 or less, and it also makes the ZenFone 5Q one of the smoothest-performing handsets in its class. The extra gigabyte of RAM lends confidence to multitasking, and we like that Asus phone includes 64GB of built-in storage, which is more akin to what you get on a base-model iPhone 8 or Galaxy S9.
The ZenFone 5Q features a 20MP front camera with Sony IMX376 sensor, self-timer + 120 ° wide-angle and f /2.0, while on the rear we will find a 16MP dual-lens camera with f / 2.2 aperture, 120 ° wide-angle dual-lens, support PDAF phase focus, 3-axis electronic anti-shock EIS technology, support for record 4K UHD video, and support for ASUS 360 degrees panorama camera. The ASUS ZenFone 5Q offers a 3300 mAh battery and runs the Android 8.0 Oreo OS from the factory.
