The King Of Mid-Range
Phone owned for less than a year

i bought this phone 6 months ago with only $220 and i got this great device with HD resolution also with a good pixel density , about performance?? it also great , yeah i know it only gets a dual-core cpu , but you know this phone also has 2 gigs RAM , i played some big games and NO LAG !! about camera?? it's absolutely WOW with 8 megapixel it's more than enough for a mid-range phone , the only weakness is this phone is battery life cz it only got 2500 , only 12 hours if you play the game and network on it will be dead on , but all of it are extremely SUPERB for $220 !!

The Best Buck for your Money
Phone owned for more than a year

The Phone is amazingly great for the Price, and the performace is extremly good for a 2 core phone, it's as good as an S4, which was its rival back then, tho it had a problem, and that's why I will only have a 6/10 in customer Service, The KitKat update, arrived nearly at the end of the year, and KitKat was already out at the time they released the Phone, but that is just a minor problem, the update had to many issues that left me without Data Connectivity for a month!(I desided to keep everithing nearly stock, since the phone was an experience for me for future Asus Products), and let me Tell you I will go for it for more with those guys, they are MVPs

A winner of a smartphone at its price band and specs
Phone owned for less than a year

I have explained in detail against each section how and why I have awarded the score. To sum it up though I would say that a higher capacity battery and better speakerphone could have earned it a perfect 10.
For those who are looking to crash benchmark records you ought to be looking at the hot phones section!
