After a long time Asus launched a new smartphone in India. This new smartphone is Zenfone Go 5.5 (ZB552KL). Phone will become available in India exclusively through Amazon for a price of INR 8499/-. Zenfone 3 series of Asus was one of the flop just because of pricing, but now this phone looks to be priced little bit better as compare to other phones.

Phone is running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system with ZenUI 3.0 on top of it. Processor unit of this phone is good enough for multi-tasking and basis users, but this processor is out dated as most of the phones in range are coming with snapdragon 425 or 430. Users will feel few frame lag while playing high end games.
This smartphone features 5.5 inch HD IPS LCD display with a resolution of 720×1280 pixels. To click your moments phone features 13 MP f/2.0 aperture rear camera with dual LED flash.

Phone comes with most of the important sensors, i.e. accelerometer, ambient light sensor, digital compass, and proximity sensor. Gyroscope is absent in this phone hence VR experience on this phone will not be that great. Colour options of this phone are Charcoal Black, Sheer Gold.
Compare to previous release of Asus in India, pricing of this phone is good, but compare to other competitors phone is not looking too promising. In this price range Xiaomi, Lenovo, Moto, Coolpad, Le Eco are providing much promising hardware. As a negative point phone also does not features fingerprint scanner.
