Its 6.2-inch 19:9 aspect ratio Super IPS+ LCD display with 2246×1080 resolution is just beautiful. 90% screen-to-body ratio too. ASUS made a smart choice with its wallpapers as well. Upon starting the phone the first time, the brightly colored wallpaper shined through the screen with utmost brilliance.
In terms of color reproduction, the ZenFone 5 looks absolutely fantastic. Its color temperature is good and can be adjusted according to your own personal preference. There’s also an “auto” option where it will automatically adjust the color temperature for you according to the place you’re at.
When placed beside its cousin – the ASUS ZenFone Max Pro (M1) – it is very apparent that the ZenFone 5 has better contrast. The two phones are similar in brightness, but in terms of viewing quality, ZenFone 5 is obviously the winner here.
For those who liked Samsung’s Smart Stay feature, ASUS has implemented a similar feature here too called Smart Screen On. The screen timeout will be prolonged.
