About ASUS ZenFone 5 A501CG 16GB

ASUS Zenfone 5 A501CG features a 16 GB version in Philippines

ASUS is selling their new ASUS Zenfone 5 A501CG pretty fast in Philippines through their partner stores. It is a pretty good smart phone from the company, and those of you who are in to Intel's hardware; this is a great mid-range device to have. Due to their Intel chipset, this company has already a huge fan base in South Asia; and they are constantly improving the specs of smart phones for gaining a much better user base as well. It is priced at an appropriate pricing figure, which enables many users to get this smart phone without having to pinch some extra cash from their pockets.

Product Description

The ASUS Zenfone 5 A501CG model was released in early January 2105 in Philippines, almost the same date as of the global markets. It supports dual SIM, along with dual standby feature. Its display is very impressive, with a medium weight of 145 g. The phone looks pretty sleek, with standard dimensions of 148.2 x 72.8 x 10.3 mm. ASUS also has its own personalized UI – the Zen UI – in this smart phone. It is going to operate on Android version 4.3 Jelly Bean OS, which can be upgraded to Android version 4.4 Kit Kat OS almost instantaneously. Networking technology is pretty flexible, as ASUS has enabled both GSM and HSPA services to its customers.

Features

  • It has a 5.0 inch IPS display unit with capacitive touch screen and 720 x 1280 pixels resolution.
  • Its display unit is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.0, which has 16 M colors and 294 ppi pixel density as well.
  • It runs a 1.2 GHz dual core Intel Atom processor along with its Z2520 chipset and Power VR SGX-544-MP2 graphics unit.
  • It has 2 GB RAM and an internal memory of 8 GB. External micro SD card is enabled with a max cap of 64 GB.
  • Primary camera is 8 MP with 3264 x 2448 pixel resolution and LED flash. Secondary camera is 2 Mp with fixed focus.
  • It also features accelerometer, proximity as well as compass sensors, with a non-removable 2110 mAh battery.

Pros

In this ASUS Zenfone 5 A501CG, the Intel processor is certainly a positive point. Even though it is a dual core processor, its graphics and performance specs are quite good. The extra 2 GB RAM also enables heavy usage, and multi-tasking. Camera is quite good as well, and considering its price – it is an absolute value for money.

Cons

Some might comment on the non-removable battery that it is not powerful enough for an Android device. Still, it works pretty well with intense usage. In addition to that, the Power VR GPU is not compatible with high-end gaming specs. Some games are not optimized to run on that particular GPU.

Popularity in Philippines

This model is one of the fastest selling ASUS smart phones in Philippines. The Filipino tech community is absolutely in love with its device due to two major reasons. Firstly, it packs a great deal of specs in such a mid-range price, which works well in the Filipino community. Secondly, the build quality is very good with a good finish. It certainly favors the "one hand" usage capability of a smart phone.

Latest News and Updates

There has been a lot of buzz recently about this ASUS Zenfone 5 A501CG. ASUS has recently announced that a 16 GB variant of this smart phone will be available in Philippines for just a price bump of 500 bucks from the 8 GB variant. In addition to that, ASUS will soon launch their customized Zen UI in the market which will operate on Android version 5.0 Lollipop OS. This model is scheduled to receive that update by mid-August.

Competition

Since this model is right on the spot with its pricing and specs, it might get some stiff competition with local companies. Foreign brands might also get in to competition with Zenfone 5, such as Motorola with their Moto G (1st generation) as well as Xiaomi with Redmi Note and Mi 3.
