The ZenFone 5 (2018) come in limelight because of the Asus which is regarded as the notched screen has extensive appeal, but not everyone can be somehow to afford the flagship-class hardware.

This is physically indistinguishable to the ZenFone 5z but has the considerably dissimilar hardware. Whether or not people think that the notched screen is said to be the Asus is copying Apple just for the sake of it, which actually permit for the narrower borders and a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio, and the company is considering focusing what’s hot in the market right now.

The notch is narrower other than seems taller than the one on the iPhone X so the “ears” are more pronounced. The screen aspect ratio is 19:9, this can imagine it as an 18:9 screen with the extra little bit to account for the notch – you aren’t technically behind any screen space.

There’s still a status bar which displays at the side of the screen below the ears. Fairly a few system status icons are all set to be visible on either side of the notch, and this can also swipe downwards to witness the app notifications and everything for the sake of its users.

The screen resolution works out to 1080×2246 pixels, and apps will be also stretch out the way the public wishes to be and this can be seen on an 18:9 screen.

There shall be other options which will permit the apps that can be run without ears getting in the way, unlike Apple’s command over the apps which can be embrace also.

The screen of this iphone supports the full DCI-P3 color space and Asus uses artificial intelligence also which can make the smartphone to get adjust genuinely with the brightness and also with the color temperature (which is another Apple-inspired idea).

This can be a gimmick or genuinely adds something which can enhance the experiences of the smartphone.

The screen measures 6.2 inches but Asus has said that the phone is smaller than many models with 5.5-inch screens.

This makes both the ZenFone 5 (2018) and ZenFone 5z easy to hold and use. This is so as the Android doesn’t natively support the notch (yet), Asus anyway complete its work via modifications to the custom ZenUI skin.

There can be some tweaks to make one-handed operation easy, which includes the being able to swipe down anywhere on the home screen which can be pull down the notifications shade also.

The ZenFone 5 and 5z is appearing like glossy exteriors that pick up smudges regularly, this is good that the smartphone isn’t too slippery. Both will be available in the same two colors – Midnight Blue and Meteor Silver.
