Asus Philippines just silently brought another of its ZenFone smartphone in the country. The crowd-favorite ZenFone Go that sports 5-inch HD display has just got a companion in the guise of ZenFone GO 4.5. As you may have already guessed by the naming, it is a smaller sibling to the original ZenFone Go device, however, there is actually more to it than just having a smaller display.
If I remember it right, this particular variant was initially announced and released in India in December of last year, however the ZenFone GO 4.5 model that we got sports higher specs compared to the that of the Indian market.
As the name implies, the Zenfone Go 4.5 has a 4.5-inch screen size and it bears an FWVGA display resolution which equates to 854x480 pixel arrangement. Through that screen size, you will be navigating this phone using the Android 5.1 Lollipop OS with Asus ZenUI 2.0 on top which is a pretty nice OS and UI combination.
Powering the Zenfone Go 4.5 is a Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.2GHz with four cores, alongside is 1GB of RAM for multitasking purposes and 8GB of internal storage space right out of the box. In case 8GB is not enough, users can still use a microSD memory card on this device up to 64GB. And then for its camera department, on back sits an 8MP shooter with autofocus and flash paired with 2MP in the front panel.
Unfortunately it does not support 4G LTE network connectivity, however there is 3G and dual SIM slot available on it. And yes, both SIM slots can run up to 3G which is nice to have. Then of course there are other connectivity features like WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS on the Asus Zenfone Go 4.5 smartphone.
As you can see this does not have all the bells and whistles like the more high end Zenfone 2, Selfie and Deluxe versions but since it's for a very very affordable price, I think it is a very good deal coming from Asus for all the people out there who are on a tight budget but want to have a taste of power of a Zenfone device.
