Flagship smartphone are becoming more and more expensive, but on the flipside, now’s a better time than ever for users on a budget. Just a few years back, cheap phones were just plain bad. Now though, even budget phones are plenty quick for day-to-day use.

If you’re someone who’s on a budget (maybe you’re saving up for games, or a new anime fig), ASUS’ latest smartphone is for you! Introducing the ZenFone Live L1!

 

 

The ZenFone Live L1 comes packed with an 18:9 5.5-inch HD+ display on a small 5-inch body, which should make this phone feel great in-hand. The Live L1 also comes with a 13MP  rear camera and a 5 MP selfie shooter. Finally, the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425, along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage (which is expandable via SD card).

While the Live L1 won’t win any awards for its internals, it should be powerful enough to run your usual day-to-day apps. Though the biggest selling point of the phone is undoubtedly its price tag of only PHP 5,995!

 

To celebrate the launch of the ZenFone Live L1, ASUS held a Mobile Fest event at SM North EDSA. Joining the celebration was vlogger Shekainah “Shek” Chen who shared her vlogging tips and tricks, along with showcasing ZenFone Live L1 features.
