Asus ZenFone Go 4.5 ZB452KG Specs, Price in the Philippines is Php 3,995

Taiwanese electronics giant Asus has a ZenFone model for everyone. And the new Asus ZenFone Go 4.5 ZB452KG is crafted specifically for budget-conscious consumers who want to experience what the brand has to offer in the Android smartphones product category.

Now available for just Php 3,995, ZenFone Go 4.5 can certainly be the trusty companion of young and hip mobile users as they go about their summer adventures.

"Asus ZenFone Go smartphones really invite users to take a break from their daily regular grind, change to their flip-flops, and ignite the wanderlust they have always had from within," shared Asus Philippines Smartphones Product Manager, Mr. Lenny Lin."

So if you're planning to get your first budget smartphone this summer, you might want to include this one in your list of handsets to check out.

There are three things that I particularly like about Asus ZenFone Go 4.5 ZB452KG.

First, flaunting a similar design language to the svelte Asus ZenFone 2 ZE551ML flagship and available in a number of colors including Gold, Yellow, Silver, Red, and White, this affordable 4.5-inch FWVGA model is quite attractive and perhaps looks more expensive than it actually is.

Second, the smartphone has decent imaging capabilities, making it a good point-and-shoot camera substitute for snapping travel shots as well as selfies. At the back, the device sports an 8 MegaPixel f/2.0 autofocus camera with LED flash that should deliver clear and crisp images even in low light conditions. And in front, you get a 2 MegaPixel shooter with Beauty Mode that automatically enhances self-portraits for instant sharing on social networking sites.

Finally, I like that Asus ZenFone Go 4.5 has relatively good internal hardware considering its price. This Dual SIM smartphone runs its ZenUI-skinned Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system with a Quad Core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset, has 1GB of RAM for multitasking, and comes replete with 8GB of expandable storage. Powered by a 2,070 mAh Li-Po battery, the handset should be able to deliver around a whole day of uptime.

Is it the right smartphone for you? If you have only around Php 4,000 to spend on your first smartphone and you want it to be an Asus ZenFone, this model should be perfect for you. Then eventually, you can upgrade to more expensive models to enhance your Zen experience. Now, if you're more open to trying out other brands - especially local ones, you can get an Android smartphone from them with better specs for the same amount. It all depends on your preferences as a consumer.
