The previous MWC 2018 of Barcelona was a key event for Asus since it was there that he presented the renewal of his range of Zenfone smartphones. Those who attend your event check firsthand (and analyze) how the Asus Zenfone 5, 5Z and Zenfone 5 Lite behave. Although the range did not stay in those three models, Asus adds more mobiles to the catalog within the line Zenfone 5.
The last smartphone to reach the market is the Asus Zenfone 5Q, a mobile that, without being too powerful, offers some appeal in details such as photography and the screen. Having sensors and objectives multiplied by two is not usual, hence the four cameras of the Asus Zenfone 5Q are noteworthy. Although yes, the benefits may not be up to par, especially considering the price segment to which it is directed.
This is another mobile that is committed to double sided glass with edges in «2,5D effect». Metal frame, design without excessive bragging and front sufficiently well used (80.3% use for the screen) that offers a panel with 18: 9 ratio. We have no notch, a point in your favor. Let's see if the rest of the specifications add more positive details.
Asus Zenfone 5Q Features
A pity that this smartphone bet on the already rolled Snapdragon 630. It is not a bad processor, but it already has some time between us and has been surpassed by other models that also do not add an excess of extra cost, such as Snapdragon 660. The rest of the hardware goes in the line of the austere without falling into bad data.

The quadruple camera is, without a doubt, one of its greatest attractions. In this sense it is on the front face where Asus places a greater emphasis, signal that the Asus Zenfone 5Q is a mobile oriented to the selfies and young audiences. The manufacturer integrates a complete capture system with beauty modes, portrait mode and wide-angle photography thanks to the 120º amplitude offered by the objective of the secondary camera. Of course, Asus has not specified the size of the photographs taken by these secondary sensors.
The Asus Zenfone 5Q It is a mid-range mobile that offers enough quality, a pleasant design without being extravagant, delves into the trend of the 18: 9 ratio and maintains a decent balance of hardware that floats in gross power. A pity that Asus does not improve at that point, in that of power: we must see how the Snapdragon 630 behaves with the heavy layer ZenUI 5.
