Wrapping up the ASUS ZenFone 5 review

We know that this is a very lengthy review. The ASUS ZenFone 5 is a big step forward from the previous generation, and ASUS is heading to a better future now. Many more features are developed and further refined for ZenUI 5.0 too.

While the AI implementation is still rather new, ASUS told us that they’re committed to improving it and updating the algorithm in the future. Of course, this is a test of time and we can only put our trust in ASUS.

There are a lot of undocumented differences between the ASUS ZenFone 5 and the ASUS ZenFone Max Pro (M1) that we reviewed here. The only similarity that they have is the they’re both equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset. For the list of differences between these two smartphones, click here.

For the price of RM1,299 (0% GST), it’s a really big difference compared to what the ASUS ZenFone 4 was asking about 9 months ago. ASUS has finally learned from their mistake, and the ZenFone series is back to the path to greatness again.

Between the ZenFone Max Pro (M1) and the ZenFone 5, is the RM1,299 really worth it? Depends on your personal preference. I like the extra features on ZenUI 5.0 because it actually helps me out in my daily smartphone usage experience. It’s a game of trade-offs.
