- Page 9: Wrapping up the ASUS ZenFone 4 review
When it comes to design, the ZenFone 4 looks… rather generic, in my opinion. It still has the same old rounded rectangle design with on-screen buttons, but I have no idea why ASUS moved the fingerprint scanner to the front. I personally would prefer it to be the same as the ZenFone 3.
The brand new ZenFone 4 still has the glass sandwich design a la its predecessors, but did away with the camera bump and fingerprint scanner at the back. The rear is now one big piece of glass with no cutouts, which got me worried about the halo effect on its cameras. This is a common phenomenon on many smartphones with a flat piece of glass across the back.
The TPU case does have some little grains on it, so it isn’t exactly in direct contact with the phone itself. This is good, considering any sort of small crystal (even salt) can deeply scratch glass. Also, the buttons are way too difficult to press when the case is installed.
Also, the ASUS ZenFone 4 weighs in at 185 grams with the TPU case. Weighs pretty much averagely compared to others in the market.
