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.

    I think you’re confusing bloatware with useful system apps. Most of the preinstalled apps from Asus are very useful. There is little actual bloatware.

    “which ASUS have made removable, so you could carry a second one around – you would need it” trust me you cannot actually remove the battery.
