ASUS ZenFone 4 Smartphone Review

On the whole, the ASUS ZenFone 4 is a decent little phone. It doesn’t do anything exceptionally well, but it doesn’t try to. What it tries to be is a dependable budget phone, and it mostly succeeds.

The display works fine. Granted, it’s not the vivid display on the iPhone 5s, though they may be the same size – but the ZenFone is a whole lot cheaper. ZenUI, too, remains sleek and simple, though slightly more fiddly due to the smaller screen.

A decent camera paired with acceptable performance continue the phone’s good points, but the major downfall is the battery life. It simply cannot last a day so you will have to re-charge often if you buy the ZenFone 4.

Despite this, we were generally quite impressed with the phone, and is definitely worth a look if you are on a tight budget. You can buy the ASUS ZenFone 4 from John Lewis for £99 inc VAT.

  • Pocket-friendly.
  • Decent camera.
  • Beautiful UI.
  • Very cheap at £99.


  • Awful battery life.
  • Lots of bloatware.
  • Fairly thick.

KitGuru says: the ASUS ZenFone 4 looks a good option if you need a decent phone on a budget, though the Moto E 2nd Gen may be worth a look too.
