As if the original Zenfone 5 wasn’t successful enough, ASUS Philippines has gone ahead and unveiled an even more affordable Zenfone variant with a 5 inch screen and Intel CPU for just Php5,595! The ASUS Zenfone 5 Lite as it is called supports a lower qHD resolution, 1GB RAM, and 8GB storage
Little else has been compromised from the Zenfone 5 to the Zenfone 5 Lite. You get the full set of wireless connectivity all the way up to HSPA+. You still get an 8mp rear-facing camera with LED flash, although the front camera drops to just VGA resolution versus the Zenfone’s 2mp front shooter. The battery is a surprising improvement though. You get a whopping 2,500mAh battery pack, which is pretty high considering this is just a 5 inch qHD screen we’re talking about.
At Php5,595 the ASUS Zenfone 5 Lite is an awesome deal, especially when you consider that it’s from an established international brand rather than a local one. Would you rather pick up the Zenfone 5 Lite or the original Zenfone 5 for about Php1k more?
