Design

Alright – the design. At first glance, the notched display is a very 2018 phone design. ASUS is now on track with the latest “trend” – which is good since ASUS got into the FullView display bandwagon very late last year.

The phone is reminiscent of the ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 4 as it is indeed a glass sandwich design. It’s a design that works – but please use the included TPU case to prevent the phone from sliding off the table and dropping onto the floor. Also, it obstructs some buttons to be pressed – which is unfortunate.

The ZenFone 5 that we have here is in the Meteor Silver color. Though it might sound like it’s a color that we’ve all seen before, I can assure you that the silver here is somewhat on the beige side. Even ASUS’s product page shows you its not entirely silver. The only way you can see the silvery beige color is at the frame of the phone. that’s because the back is just way too reflective to see.

Continuing the 2018 trend is vertically-stacked cameras. Hooray, I guess?

ASUS also included a TPU case, and it has dimples as mentioned earlier. These dimples prevent direct contact of the TPU with the case, which is beneficial as particles that got stuck inside the case won’t scratch your phone that easily. With my personal experience, a little salt crystal can cause a deep scratch.
