We recently reported about the affordable trio of super affordable Intel powered phones that Asus showcased. The Asus Zenfone 4 happens to be the cheapest among the three.
Joshua Vergara of Android Authority got a chance to play with the Asus Zenfone 4 at the ongoing CES 2014. The Zenfone 4 is priced a meagre $99. Meagre because it comes with a dual-core Intel Atom Z2520 processor and 1GB of RAM, which is something that will make Chinese manufacturers green in envy. Apart from the Intel processor and 1GB RAM, the phone comes with a 4-inch WVGA screen true to its name, a camera duo of a 5 mega-pixel rear and a 0.3 mega-pixel front and lastly, a 1170mAh battery.
