Asus released a new phone called Zenfone 5Q. Luckily, I got chosen to try it. Overall, the experience gave me a new perspective on Zenfones. But here’s what I really love about this phone.
Smartphones these days became one of the most important things that you cannot leave in the house. It became a part of our daily lives that without it, we may not survive. Of course, that’s just a figure of speech but who knows?
What is the Asus Zenfone 5Q?
Before I tried Zenfone 5Q, I’ve been using mobile clip-on lenses to capture wide angle photos. This tires me since it takes a lot of effort to get the lenses and attaching it to the phone. The major thing about this phone is that it boasts a slim figure that makes it easy to hold.
So now, I’m sharing the top 3 things that I love about this phone.
Who doesn’t like well-framed photos? I guess at this time, everyone wants a photo they could put up on their social accounts or even on their walls.
Well, I have a confession to make. This phone boasts two (2) sets of cameras. Front and back. Now, the mystery is what makes up the front cameras and the back cameras.
- The main camera boasts a whopping 20-megapixel camera with an aperture of 2.0 and Sony IMX376 sensor.
- Its 120-degree secondary camera uses an 8-megapixel camera with 2.5 aperture. It uses an Omnivision 8856 sensor.
- The main back camera uses a 16-megapixel camera with a 2.2 aperture.
- On the other hand, the 120-degree secondary camera uses an 8-megapixel camera with a 2.4 aperture. (I find this very close to the secondary front camera.)
Before anything else, I will show you how different photos are when capturing with and without the 120-degree secondary camera.
Disclaimer: Excuse our faces as the following photos are shameless selfies and wefies.

As you see, the photo just capture our faces and a little over the shoulders. We shot this at the National Museum of Natural History.
Now, here’s the other photo using the 120-degree secondary camera.
Did you notice something different?

|Only captured faces up to the shoulder area.||Captured up to the torso.|
|Still concealed that I took the photo.||You now see and know that I was holding the camera while taking the photo.|
|Where’s the floor?||Look at the floor!|
Those are just some of the things you notice first with a glance. But, what does this implicate or do to help you?
- Using the 120-degree secondary camera, you capture photos with more view or content. Photos you take may easily be uploaded on your accounts such as Instagram and other photo-sharing networks.
- You see more and share more especially with your family if in case you live far from them. Sharing videos about your child or relatives become a whole lot easier.
When it comes to choosing phones, I prefer something that’s easy to bring around. Holding and using this phone gave me that comfort that other phones I previously used did not. Most people go to a lot of places with a lot of things in their bags. Some are their essentials, although some are work stuff.
A mobile phone transformed from being a simple tool for communication to something vital for work. Carrying around a mobile phone requires space in our pockets or bags. Some gadgets get bigger and bigger as the years go by. However, this phone, given its screen size still fits my tiny shoulder bag and pocket.
You need not worry about holding it anywhere you go because it’s only 168.3 grams! That’s irrelevant if you’re not into the details.
#3 Affordability and Durability
While the Zenfone 5Q belongs to the mid-range phone, you can afford it at Php 14,995. Its color ranges from midnight black or moonlight white. I chose the midnight black since black’s very much elegant with almost anything.
Moreover, the phone has a battery that lasts longer letting you capture more moments and scenic views. Technically speaking, the phone has a 3300 mAh battery which becomes more powerful with the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 mobile platform.
So when we went to the museum, I was practically carrying and holding the phone wanting to capture captivating photos of the exhibits. I did not get tired much of carrying it as it’s lightweight. I got so giddy when I was able to capture the entirety of the Tree of Life.
Hence, take a look at some of my photos using the wide-angle camera.
You’ll see more of the wide angle photos since I got excited about using it and telling a story about it.

So, that’s it for my review! I totally love this phone, especially how slim it looks and feels. I hope this has enlightened you into buying this phone and capturing moments like ours.
