Read: Zenfone 5Q Review

The Asus ZenFone 5Q is a pretty-well recommended smartphone in the mid-range segment. We were surprised that it has a capacity of recording 4K videos. The ZenUI 4.5 certainly looks cleaner, but not much has really revised below the screen from the previous version. – Matthew S. Cuyugan, Sr. Contributor, Tech Patrol.
