Features, Performance, and Reviews for the ZenFone 5Q

ZenFone 5Q's size

The ZenFone 5Q is 3.0 inches (76 mm) wide, 6.3 inches (160.5 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (7.7 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the ZenFone 5Q, it weighs about 168 oz (168 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the ZenFone 5Q, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

The CPU performance of ZenFone 5Q

The ZenFone 5Q has an extremely high processing power of 2.2GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The ZenFone 5Q has 4GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The ZenFone 5Q is an exceptional high-end smartphone. You will be fully content with its performance in all areas. It is a must-have for you if operation performance is important for you.

ZenFone 5Q's storage capacity

The ZenFone 5Q has 64GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the ZenFone 5Q is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

ZenFone 5Q's screen

The ZenFone 5Q has a 6 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen of the ZenFone 5Q is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The camera function of ZenFone 5Q

The ZenFone 5Q has a 16 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

In addition, the front camera of the ZenFone 5Q has an extremely high resolution with 20 MP. You can take top-notch photos and the camera performance leaves no wishes unfilled. You will enjoy using your smartphone as your camera.

The battery performance of ZenFone 5Q

The ZenFone 5Q has a relatively large battery with 3300 mAh. The ZenFone 5Q has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.
