The Asus ZenFone 5 has a very good looking, neat and catchy design, thanks to the silver buttons and the metal strip in the front bottom. Asus did a good job in at least making the device better in looks than the other devices in similar price range, and the white variant looks neat from all sides, although the back panel is easily prone to dust and the color could change with time.
The UI makes the phone look even more interesting. Check out the photos below for the photo gallery of the Asus ZenFone 5 smartphone, to understand the inclusions and the external aspect of it.
The back looks excellent, and except for the brand logos, it is totally smooth and curving down and narrowing towards the sides. The top has the camera and flash, while there is a wide speaker grill with the holes in the bottom.
The left side of the phone is flat, with the black line from the screen and the major white continuing from the back panel. The phone looks like a unibody one, but the back cover is well removable, although the battery cannot be removed as there is no access to it, and the back cover gives you the option to insert the SIM and SD card.
The right side has both, the power button as well as the volume rocker button. The top has a 3.5mm headset jack, while there is a MicroUSB port in the bottom. There is a secondary mic on the top.
There’s way too much of branding on the back – ASUS, Intel Inside and Zenfone between the camera and the speaker grill, covering most of the white space. And, this is where the phone looks beautiful – the bottom metallic strip that shines with the circular lines.
You would probably love the quick settings section in the Asus ZenFone 5, because of the large icon for each toggle making it easier to use and the colors in there look very good.
Once you open the back cover, there is no access to the battery but only the slots are available for access. There are two SIM card slot in the center, opposite to each other, while beside the camera on the top, there is a slot for the MicroSD card.
