    ZENFONE 5- Truly Best In Class!!! ---- Zenfone 5 vs Moto G (2nd Edition)

    FYI: Android 5.0 Lolipop is confirmed for both of the devices!! Review after 2.5 months of usage! Asus Zenfone 5 vs Moto G (2nd Gen) 1.) In the box accessories Accessories provided with zenfone 5 are of very good quality whereas that of Moto G2 is not upto the mark. USB cable is also absent in the box of moto G2. 2.) Design & Build Quality Design of both phones are really good. But relatively compact size of moto G2 makes it easier to handle. Build quality of both phones are very good 3.) Display Both the devices have 5 inch IPS LCD display with a pixel density of 294 ppi & good viewing angles. Zenfone 5 has an inbuilt app called splendid which allows us to change the colour contrast and saturation of the display which is pretty good. 4.) Processor Zenfone has a 1.6 GHz Dual core Intel atom atom processor with hyperthreading technology which makes the device to perform like a 1.6GHz quad core processor!! Moto G2 has a 1.2GHz Quad core snapdragon chipset which is behind the Intel processor in terms of performance. (See the benchmark results) Zenfone 5 * Antutu 5 : 23000 * Quadrant : 9156 * Nenamark 2 : 60.5fps * GFXBench : 12.5 * Basemark X : 5.491 Moto G2 * Antutu 5 : 18245 * Quadrant : 8082 * Nenamark 2 : 57.5 fps * GFXBench : 10.8 * Basemark X : 2.959 5.) RAM Zenfone 5 comes with 2GB of RAM which gives you a smooth multitasking experience than moto G2 which is having only 1GB of RAM. Moto G2 shows small amount of lags during heavy multitasking 6.) Graphics Zenfone 5 has PowerVR SGX 544 MP2 graphics which is much better than the Adreno graphics of Moto G2 which is clear from the Nenamark 2 benchmark score. 7.) Software Moto G2 is running on stock android Kitkat (4.4.4). Kitkat update(4.4.2) is now out for Zenfone 5 also.Android L update for both the phones are confirmed. Moto G2 will get the Lolipop update earlier than the Zenfone series. Definitely Moto G2 scores here with its faster android updates. 8.) User Interface Zenfone 5 comes with Zen UI which is butter smooth and has lot of option to customize. It is loaded with many built-in useful apps such as App lock, Ram cleaner etc. Trust me, you will love it!! Moto G2 has stock android with no option to customize 9.) Camera Both the phone comes with 8MP rear and 2MP front cameras which is good in performance. But Moto G2 has a stock camera interface which has only limited options allows only HD video recording whereas the camera of Zenfone with PixelMaster Technology has a much better camera UI with lot of options and modes and it allows full HD video recording!! You will fall in love with it for sure!! 10.) Sound The speaker volume of Zenfone 5 is a bit low but of good quality. Sound quality through headsets is very good. Whereas the speaker volume of Moto G2 is loud as well as of good quality because of the dual front speakers. 11.) Call quality Call quality is excellent on Zenfone 5 (Rating: 9) Moto G also has good call quality (Rating: 8) 12.) Battery Zenfone 5 has 2110mA battery & Moto G2 has a 2070mA battery. Both of them lasts for one day with moderate usage. After Kitkat update, battery backup of Zenfone 5 improved a lot. Now it's giving 5 hours of screen time which was only 2.5 -3 hrs when the time of purchase!! Moto G (2nd gen) is giving a screen time of 4-4.5 hrs. (Both are with WiFi and single sim) 13.) Memory Zenfone 5 has 8 GB internal storage out of which 5 GB is available for user. It also allows installation of apps to SD card directly whereas MotoG2 comes with 16GB storage out of which 12GB is usable. It doesn’t allow the installation of apps directly to SD card. 14.) Charging Zenfone 5 takes 2.45 hrs to charge from 0- 100% whereas Moto G2 takes around 3.5 to 4 hrs. 15.) SAR Values Most of the people never mind this!! But this is a very important factor as it is the radiation values of the phone. * Zenfone 5 : At the Head - 0.710 W/Kg, At the Body - 0.607 W/Kg * Moto G2 : At the Head - 1.52 W/Kg, At the Body - 0.894 W/Kg Remember 1.6 W/Kg is the maximum allowed limit of SAR value Bottom line: Both of the devices are really good and value for money. So make a decision according to your needs and usage pattern!!

    You Cant Get Better Than This IN 10k.........Believe Me

    I have purchased this Asus 5 Golden color with 8GB. I have not expected initialy that Asus will give so much in this price.Now Detail Review..... Hardware(10/10) : 2GB Ram,8gb(you will get 5gb),intel processor at 1.6GHZ speed. Everything works awesome. Software(10/10) : ZenUI.........o my god its awesome friends. Just use it and you will feel.No bloatware.All application are very useful. One thing i wants to tell you here is that this phone is having totally new user interface. Asus has changed almost everything from phone dialer to calculator. Its not like micromax,karbon or any other cheaper phone who just got the android from somewhere and installed as it is in phones(awwwwwwwwwww). Design(10/10): No compro in design from Asus. Very beautifully designed. Call Quality(15/10): Dont go on my rating my math is good. When you will use this phone for call you will feel that previous phone with same sim will come to know the power of a phone to boast calling quality. Crisp clear voice even when network bars will be 1 or 2. Call Recording(10/10): Yes you can record calls. Display(10/10): This phone having 294ppi density. Colors and graphics are superb. They are saying Gorilla Glass 3 is there but its not having Gorilla Glass. My phone fall down from knee hight and screen got broken. I called service centre and they are telling cost 7000 plus for screen. So be careful to use this phone. I will suggest purchase tempered glass screen protecttor on top of the screen of this phone. Touch(10/10): Very smoth, resposive, no leg at all. Notification Light(9/10): Yes it is also there. For calls,messages but there is not any option to control it. But in 10k its there. Flash(10/10): I compared flash light with sony experia Z. Asus 5 won. Camera(10/10): I have used camera. Its having almost every feature and some features which high end phones also not gif animation pic,owl mode...etc Front camera is also good. Also you can use volume button as shutter for those who like dedicated key to click pictures. Speaker Sound(10/10): Very clear sound and well placed speaker. When you will play games speaker wont be covered by your hand. EarPhone(10/10): Its awesome. When you will hear the sound you will be amzed and feel like Sony Eriction kind of sounds. Bass is superb. Although ep is not very fancy also not having dedicated volume key. Apps Installation(10/10) : I have seen some reviews peoples are saying you cant install apps on sd card. Its not true. you can install apps directly on sd card. For this this is the path settings->asus custmized settings->under app installation->app installtion settings and chose your default installation location. you can also move application if it allowed. this depends on application. Face Unlock(10/10): Yes it is also there. Miracast(10/10): Yes my friend its also there. Enjoy things on big LED Screens. Reading Mode(10/10): It will change all the colors and text of your phone like a book. DUAL SIM(10/10): Both sims support 3G. Yes u r not believing? This is the first phone which is gving this feature in this range. Also both sim slots are mini sim slot. Browsing Speed(10/10): It supports upto 40mbps. Browsing is super fast. Compared with xperia z. Asus 5 won. Gaming(10/10): Awesome graphics,superb animation. I played asphalt8 previously on lumia 720, samsung grand, micromax phones but when i played on this device i felt like i am playing first time. The drawback of this is draining battery very fast. Weight(10/10): Its around 140gm. You will feel very lightweight and handy. Handling(10/10): Designed in a way that you will feel the phone very slim and handy. Width of phone is not too much thats y u will feel very handy. Video Quality(10/10): Its awesome. It can play video upto 1080p.Compared with xperia z. Battery(8/10): Yes first time i am giving 8. I got battery backup 16 hours with continous 3G,single sim normal use. I played 2 or 3 games including asphalt 8 which consumed 30% of battery. Heating Issue(9/10): very very little heating. Android(10/10): currently android 4.3 upgradable to 4.4 but dont know when update will come. Also not sure Asus will give L update or not? FM Radio: Yes its also there. Thats It my friends. Lots of features are still there. When you will use u will know. Also i will suggest you to buy 8GB version as it will save RS.3000. You can purchase 16GB sd card in RS.600. Thanks,

    Excellent phone.

    got asus zenfone champane gold 5 on the launch day. excellent phone lag. resolution is outstanding. features equipped, very good camera..fantastic phone and seems i paid peanuts for such a good phone..beware of poor reviews by people i don't think they have even held the phone.. they seem to be from rival companies trying to project poor image of such a good product..highly recommend..people should go for this phone whenever it is back in stock.
