What the Critics Are Saying...

Asus might not be the first name that you think of when buying a new smartphone, and its mid-range price perhaps leads you to expect a solid device, rather than spectacular one, but the Zenfone 4 certainly offers a lot of photographer-friendly features that are well-thought-out and well implemented.

Mobile Syrup

The ZenFone 4 marks yet another quality addition to Asus’s ZenFone line. While its lack of carrier support may mean it’s destined to remain an obscure brand for most consumers, those seeking quality inexpensive options online would do well to consider this handset.

- Rose Behar, Mobile Syrup
Digital Trends

Good audio performance can’t rescue the ZenFone 4 from its frustrating software.

- Andy Boxall, Digital Trends
Know Your Mobile

A nice overall package with a great mid-range spec. Unfortunately costs a bit too much and the camera is a bit temperamental

- Paul Briden, Know Your Mobile
Coolsmartphone

It is a fantastic handset and priced well considering the quality and speed of it.

Software made us cry, but the audio made us weep with joy

from Digital Trends

Frustrating software made us lose our calm with the ZenFone 4, which is a shame when other aspects like the battery and audio performance are great for a phone at this price.

An improvements over previous Zenfones

The ZenFone 4 is an excellent phone, but it's one that many may pass over because of its price. At £449, you're paying a fairly high price for a mid-range device. Ultimately, that's where it comes unstuck. If you do buy one, you'll enjoy using it, it's a really nice phone. But it's going to be too easy to pass it over.

If you are a camera connoisseur then the ZenFone 4 is going to absolutely blow you away. Taking photos with this phone is just heavenly, with its dual-lens camera system delivering in EVERY situation, no matter if it epic landscapes or intimate selfies. The fact that it delivers this on top of a solid core spec, excellent audio credentials, and an innovative software suite just makes us love it more.
