Display of the Zenfone Go ZB690KG

The processing capability of the Zenfone Go ZB690KG
The memory capacity is 1GB. It has low spec processing power and its performance is lower than typical smartphones. Also, memory space is slightly smaller than average smartphones. There are many times when storage space feels insufficient. Ultimately, it's just barely enough to get by.

The Zenfone Go ZB690KG has a back camera with 8 MP. The front camera has 2 MP. The rear camera performance is about the same as a typical smartphone. The image quality for longer distance photography is less than satisfactory, but on the whole, there are no issues with short distance photos.
Review of the product design of the Zenfone Go ZB690KG
Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets
When deciding whether to buy an Zenfone Go ZB690KG, the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the Zenfone Go ZB690KG around and put it away.
Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around
The Zenfone Go ZB690KG is hard to hold with one hand, so it would be to stop carrying it in your wallet. Also, when holding the Zenfone Go ZB690KG, it is difficult to have a firm grip of it, so be careful not to drop it. If possible, when carrying it around, it would be better to do so with the device in your bag.
Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket
It doesn't feel strange even when you put the Zenfone Go ZB690KG in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.
Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket
With the Zenfone Go ZB690KG, it is quite difficult to put it into your pocket and then take it out again. If you try to put it in your pocket, the cloth in your pocket may rip, or the phone may be damaged because of pressure.
Ease of getting it in and out of your bag
The Zenfone Go ZB690KG is a size that allows you to take it in and out of your bag and use it with ease. Also, since it is compact, even if your bag is small it won't get too bulky which is convenient.
Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling
It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the Zenfone Go ZB690KG by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.
Ease of grasping the phone in one hand
The Zenfone Go ZB690KG is so large that you can hardly move your fingers on the device while holding it with one hand. You can't extend your fingers to reach the end of the phone unless your have a big hand, so you pretty much have to hold it with one hand while going about your business with the phone using the other hand.
The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand
The Zenfone Go ZB690KG feels too heavy to operate with one hand, so the device wouldn't be a good choice even if you are just going to use it for a short period of time. We suggest that you hold it tightly with both hands as it may hurt your hands if you use it with just one hand for an extended period of time.
Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand
When using the Zenfone Go ZB690KG with just one hand, it is quite difficult to press the button on the screen edge. We suggest you operate the device with both your hands rather than pushing your luck with just one hand.
The size of the buttons on the App
The buttons on the Zenfone Go ZB690KG are displayed quite large. Because of this, it is difficult to press something by mistake and it feels very easy to use. Even with games that use small buttons, it's difficult to press something by mistake making it very easy to play.
Ease of typing in letters using the flick function
It is difficult to type with one hand using theZenfone Go ZB690KG. If you try too hard to type, the hand you hold the phone with may slip and you may end up dropping the device. As such, we suggest you type with both your hands on the phone.
Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion
I think it is easy to use the buttons on the Zenfone Go ZB690KG as they are displayed in large sizes. However, it is difficult not to make typos when typing at high speeds. I don't think you will feel it difficult to type if you are careful when typing.
Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use
Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use
For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the Zenfone Go ZB690KG is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.
The size of the letters and the ease of operation
Because the display of the Zenfone Go ZB690KG is much larger than ordinary phones, characters are displayed quite large. Therefore, it is suitable for reading long bodies of text and exchanging long messages while doing research.
Ease of reading sentences
The screen of the Zenfone Go ZB690KG doesn't display characters very clearly, and the outlines of letters can appear jagged. It's not at a level where it would inconvenience you when displaying large text, but smaller text can feel pretty hard to read.
The beauty of the overal screen
I can't say that the screen of the Zenfone Go ZB690KG is very beautiful. The dots that often appear on digital images are visible when photographs or videos are on screen which can make the display seem a little dull. Every now and then I did feel it was a bit ugly, but this probably won't be an issue for regular use.
Ease of writing sentences
The Zenfone Go ZB690KG has enough screen space even when typing and the screen is hidden by the on screen keyboard. Because the sentences being typed can be seen clearly, the phone's screen size makes it suitable for typing and editing large bodies of text such as office documents.
Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?
When using the Zenfone Go ZB690KG for calls, emails, or for chatting the processing power can be insufficient, and you can experience slowdowns as a result. When using apps it felt like the motion would get caught up which was a bit stressful. For ordinary more relaxed use this slowing isn't at a level that would bother you, but its performance is not suited for fast control.
Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?
The performance felt lacking when using the internet and SNS. Sometimes the apps felt like they were running slowly. If I kept using it when that happened apps would close suddenly or stop completely.
Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?
For example, if you're using multiple apps simultaneously, such as swapping between SNS or chat frequently, it will gradually start to operate slowly. If you use it for a long period in this way apps can begin to forcefully close due to lack of memory and can crash.
