A compact, stylish and high-value smartphone for today’s savvy and socially-connected consumers, with a vivid 5-inch IPS HD (1280 x 720) display and a feature-rich 8MP PixelMaster main camera with industry-leading low-light performance. The newest member of the original ZenFone generation keeps the fun rolling with a high-capacity battery that provides almost 30 hours of 3G talk time and over 10 days on standby.

ZenFone Go packs a powerful 1.3GHz quad core processor for superior everyday performance, and includes intelligent dual SIM, dual-active technology that lets users both deal with and switch seamlessly between business and personal needs.

This lightweight marvel also has exclusive ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, controlled by the intuitive ASUS AudioWizard with ICEpower® technology for mobile-audio experiences that sound great in any surroundings.

PixelMaster camera: See what others can’t see

ZenFone Go is equipped for superb everyday photography and fun selfies, with two built-in cameras. The main PixelMaster camera has a 8MP, f/2.0 lens to capture stunning photos. PixelMaster’s industry-leading Low Light mode employs pixel-merging technology to capture up to 400%-brighter photos at night, or in low-light scenes, without the need for a flash — something not previously possible with a 5MP camera.

The ZenFone Go’s PixelMaster main camera also has Backlight (HDR) mode to let users capture vivid, evenly-exposed photos in challenging backlit scenes such as sunset portraits. By using pixel-enhancing technology to increase contrast by up to 400%, Backlight (HDR) mode ensures that foreground subjects stand out clearly and are free of shadows.

ZenFone Go’s ZenUI Camera app also includes loads of powerful features to help users capture the very best photographs and selfies, including Time Rewind that snaps even before the shutter button is pressed and Depth of Field to create stunning miniature-world effects.




Android Lollipop 5.1

Browse through the ZenUI with Android Lollipop 5.1 from out of the box. It gives you the best Android experience with all the bug fixes and improved key aspects of the entire operating system, and added some new tricks and fancy animations to make ZenFone Go even livelier.


SonicMaster audio: Exclusive technology for high-quality mobile sound

ZenFone Go benefits from ASUS-exclusive SonicMaster technology for exceptional mobile-audio experiences. An ingenuous amplifier design enables ZenFone Go to deliver an output voltage that’s up to 25% greater than competing smartphones. The included ASUS AudioWizard app with ICEpower technology helps the users to shape the sound for every environment and situation. The result is rich, powerful and dynamic audio output that delivers louder, distortion-free sound for both work and play, from speakerphone calls and voiced map directions to music and movies.
