The Asus Zenfone V is not a showstopper when comparing hardware and design with other flagship phones. It’s a good phone with some aspects that step it up into ‘great’ territory, but what really seals the deal is the mind-blowing price tag.

- Mark Knapp, TechRadar
PhoneArena

The Asus Zenfone V is a premium-looking device with fast internals, but just don't be surprised if your friends on other networks lord their superior OnePlus or Honor devices over you.

Talk Android
