The ZenFone 5 is the middle child of the ZenFone family, and is incidentally the
face as ASUS is pushing it more than its 4in and 6in siblings. The ZenFone 5 is
a wonderful device to hold with a matte soft touch back that has a slight curve for
ergonomic purposes. Weighing 145g, the device has a satisfying heft to it. The metal
plate below the capacitive buttons rock a concentric circle pattern, evoking the
look of another ASUS Zen product the Zenbook. While this also makes the device
longer than other 5in offerings, it still looks great.
