Asus ZenFone Go (ZC500TG) 16GB Features

Asus, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has launched the Asus ZenFone Go in the sub 10,000 category where the other Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi, Lenovo and Coolpad are already facing cut throat competition. The Asus ZenFone Go (ZC500TG) looks like an average performer when it comes to the specifications of the device.

Display and Design
Asus Zenfone Go (ZC500TG) has a 5 inch LCD Panel display with a resolution of 1280x720 pixels (HD) giving it a pixel density of 294PPI. Unfortunately, the display lacks Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The phone has a Plastic body but the build looks to be firm and good to hold.

Hardware Specifications and Other Features
Talking about the performance, the Asus Zenfone GO (ZC500TG) runs on a MediaTek MT6580 Quad Core chipset clocked at 1.4GHz and paired along is 2GB of RAM which is bare minimum. In terms of software the phone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box with Asus's  Zen UI running on top of it. There has been information about if the device is supposed to receive Android Marshmallow update.

Camera and Storage
On the rear of the device sits a 8MP sensor that can record videos up to 1080p, whereas on the front you get just a 2MP shooter which can is quite below average in terms of picture quality. The rear camera also has an LED Flash for taking shots in the dark. And to store all your pictures and other data you get 16GB of internal storage that can be further expanded via a MicroSD card up to 64GB.

Battery and Connectivity
To power all this we have a just 2070mAh battery that is not removable and sounds below average as we doubt if it will last through a whole working day. The device supports Dual Micro SIMs. The device lacks 4G connectivity.

Alternatives
In the similar price range there are other quite a few new entries that rock new chipset and are said to have a better performance and other features as well. The Coolpad Note 3 Lite is the latest addition here that rocks a decent processor, good battery and rocks a fingerprint sensor as well. Other good option to consider would be the Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime that again runs on Snapdragon 410 and is definitely worth considering.
