The Midrange Phone That Runs on Desktop Processor

Asus Zenfone 5 has raised the bar higher for its competitor to hit. During its release, this phone was basically a wolf in sheep’s clothing: a powerful phone that was simply branded as a midrange due to its price tag. With an Intel Atom Quad-core Processor, 2 GB RAM, 16GB Internal Memory (and microSD card slot which supports up to 64GB), and an 8MP camera that could take vividly take photos even at low light, who would have thought that it wasn’t really meant to hold the top spot in the market? The only factor that gave it away to the midrange category is its price, that’s it! When it comes to performance, this phone surely was able to keep up with the high-end flagship models from its time.

The Zenfone 5 is one of the very limited few that’s powered by an Intel Atom processors, which is running with a Quad-core processor. This is a 64 but the chipset, a processor which has a speed equally fast as a standard computer. On top of that, its equipped with PowerVR Chipset for the best gaming experience that you could get from the middle of the spectrum.

An Unbeatable 2GB RAM

When we talk about midrange phones, most of the time today they're only equipped with 1 GB worth of RAM. Though that much RAM is not really bad, 2GB RAM on a midrange smartphone is a rare find. This feature is what sparked the interest of many consumers, and made this device as popular as it is now. Back in the days when 1GB RAM was the only thing available to run hardcore mobile games in the midrange market, Zenfone 5 stepped into the challenge. It instantly became a crowd favorite, especially for gamers and heavy user, while on the other hand, it became a standard to beat by its competitors. With so much RAM paired with its powerful GPU (PowerVR), HD games are now within everyone’s reach, and multitasking has never been as smooth.

Pixel Shooter in the Dark

One of the most stand-out quality of the Zenfone 5 is its 8MP Pixel Master Camera. It could capture great quality pictures even in low light with its low light mode – feature that’s never existed in any smartphones before it. Also, it boasts a 2MP front camera with face detection, a perfect companion in taking that picture perfect selfie.
