ASUS Just Unapologetically, Embarrassingly Copied the iPhone X

All about ASUS's Zen Fone Max

Before the 5, there were a handful of manufacturers who copied the iPhone X's design.

According to another report on WinFuture, the alleged ZenFone 5 smartphone comes with an 18:9 aspect ratio display.

On the back of the ASUS ZenFone 5Z you will find two cameras, a 12-megapixel main snapper (Sony's IMX363 sensor, f/1.8 aperture, 83-degree lens, 16-scene AI scene detection), and a secondary 120-degree wide-angle lens, though we're still not sure what sensor is included here, nor how many megapixels are we looking at, but we're presuming 12 as well. While most previous devices from Asus ZenFone line have looked a bit dated, these both looked and felt like a cutting-edge device.

Asus is also offering a slightly cheaper model called the Asus Zenfone 5, although there's no official pricing confirmed for this model. There's also AI Photography which adjusts your camera's settings to for the best shot. Accessing them is as simple as tapping on them and a notification bar will extend showing you the hidden icons.

Major storm brings flooding to central and southern US
We've had an extremely wet February with many places a good 5-6 inches above average as far as rainfall is concerned. On its website, the weather service specifically notes "much of Portsmouth itself is protected by flood walls".

The Asus ZenFone 5 is similar to the ZenFone 5Z.

Let's talk about those speakers for a moment: ASUS says that it tuned them to be room-filling, with extra-large cavities for true bass, and thoughtful equalization that projects proper separation and soundstage. In fact, Samsung has that fancy "keep the screen on while the user looks at it" feature on the Galaxy S8 from a year ago and just calls it "Smart stay".

The most impressive of the 5 series are the Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 5z, two devices with near identical sets of specs. But other than that, there really isn't that much on the phone that has to do with artificial intelligence other than the pre-built Google Assistant.

ASUS is certainly not the only company designing Android phones with notches, nor is it alone in trying to rebuild iOS within Android's framework. To take on Samsung's Galaxy S9, the ZenFone 5Z offers a combination of powerful RAM and storage options: 6GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage, and 8GB of RAM with 256GB of storage. Asus also launched the ZenFone 5Z, a higher-specced version for £499, and the 6-inch ZenFone 5 Lite. It does have the same battery capacity, however.

Duncan, from Ontario, finished in eighth place in ski cross on Wednesday, beating his 24th place finish in Sochi in 2014. The 35-year-old British Columbia resident also won an X Games silver medal in 2010 and bronze medal in 2012.

Asus in total launched five phones including three Zenfone 5 series handsets that come with iPhone X like design. For selfies, the Zenfone 5 Lite sports a 20MP primary sensor and wide-angle secondary sensor. The selfie camera is an 8MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and support for face unlock. They run on ZenUI 5.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo.

If you're interested in getting your hands on the ZenFone 5, it won't be hitting the market until April. The variant that's going to be released in the United States will be branded as the Zenfone 5Q and will feature the Snapdragon 630 chip.

The Zenfone 5 and 5Z even have a notch at the top of the nearly full screen display. The smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor and 4GB/6GB RAM - the internal storage is 64GB which is expandable via microSD card slot. The ZenFone 5Z delivers the ultimate smartphone performance at a very affordable price. Now whether or not this will be the Asus Zenfone 5 Lite is something which remains to be seen. We couldn't test it out in depth but it did sound better most phones we've tried.
