The ASUS Zenfone smartphone specification has hit the network, which should not appear in 2018. The new ASUS has just 1 GB of RAM and Snapdragon 425 processor. Is there any reason to buy it in 2018?

As you have probably noticed, I am very positive about the whole range of smartphones that ASUS will show in the Zenfone 5 family. And basically, I was, because in the light of new information it is clear that even in such a good year, a bad idea happens to any company. This one is extremely unpopular. The network hit the benchmark results, which was carried out on an ASUS device equipped with … 1 GB RAM . The processor is an acceptable Snapdragon 425 that "can do", which we can see for example in the context of Xiaomi Redmi 4A. But even in a very cheap device, which is currently the Xiaomi model, we find 2 GB of RAM, which constitute an absolute minimum to make everyday work a comfortable one. https://twitter.com/rquandt/status/963527478013816832 I can only think of one reasonable explanation for which ASUS would release such a device. This is in my opinion the desire to join the Android One or Android Go program . But even in this case, it seems to me that it has no right to burn – the price does not matter. Please note that in our list of cheap smartphones up to PLN 500, there is not a single model that has less than 2 GB of RAM. There is a reason why, even with pure Android, such an investment simply does not make sense. After a series of leaks that have revealed very good smartphones, such as ASUS Zenfone 5 or ASUS Zenfone 5 Lite, I am very disappointed. And although I know that this model will almost certainly not go to Poland, now even the lowest price level should not look like this. Truth? Source: Roland Quandt
