Video: $99 Asus Zenfone 4 hands-on

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.

        Well, if it’s capable of running two days on one charge I would still have prefered a 2000mah battery. Think of the battery life that would give you.
        Really curious about the performance as this is x86 based and intel themselves have been working on this version of Android, could be great could be terrible, but intel deliver top of the line products most of the time soooo.. hopes up!
