In case you missed it, the ASUS ZenFone 5 has a dual camera setup. It goes with a 12MP f/1.8 Sony IMX363 + 8MP f/2.0 OV8856 w/ Tri-tech AF, Dual Pixel, 120-degree wide-angle, OIS, EIS, and dual tone LED flash.

According to DxOMark, the ASUS ZenFone 5 was able to provide good camera performance in the midrange segment.

To most users, ASUS might not be the first brand that springs to mind when thinking about smartphones, but the Taiwanese manufacturer has been showing for a long time that it’s more than capable of designing devices that can compete with the big smartphone brands. The new ZenFone 5 mid-ranger is no exception. It might not be for you if you rely on good-quality zoom images, but it comes with an excellent autofocus system, and delivers good image quality with excellent dynamic range in bright light across all shooting situations.


There is a noticeable drop-off in detail and an increase in image noise once the light gets dimmer, but the autofocus system works just as well as in bright light, and exposure and color are nice down to very low light levels. The video mode’s main drawback is slightly low levels of detail across all light levels, but otherwise the Asus is capable of recording decent moving images as well, making it a very good option for anyone who values camera performance but doesn’t want to spend top-end money.


The test of DxOMark did not include the function of the wide-angle lens of the ZenFone 5. But, that 8MP f/2.0 OV8856 120-degree wide-angle lens can still be useful when needed, a nice feature to have.

Overall, welcome back ASUS! Good job!
