The Position of the device

The Initial view of the phone on which it is conducted, can hardly let something interesting. Many of the reviews indicate that the budget device is already visible at first - this modest settings, no attractive design, cheap build materials.

But do not hurry to write off from the accounts model high-quality devices from Asus. As the operation of the device, according to many buyers, it becomes visible the true potential of the smartphone. And he, frankly, impressed even the experts.

After Reading our review, you might also realize that Asus ZenFone 4 A400CG (which reviews are we also going to lead in today's article) is not so simple as it seems at first glance.

Any characteristic of a smartphone, we begin with a description of his appearance. It is a tradition, as with the design of the apparatus facing the buyer in the first place right after takes the phone in hand. And, as already noted, nothing special appearance Asus ZenFone 4 A400CG (reviews confirm this) are not represented.

The Front part of the smartphone is fully covered with glass, except the bottom panel. She deliberately separated from the remaining part of the screen, and visually this trick is justified.

The Back of the device is made as of Lumia smartphones: it has bright color and due to its shape completely covers the side of the phone. This decision is a budget, but entirely justified due to the possibility to change the cover and thereby personalize the appearance of the device on your taste. The more that the manufacturer promises 5 color variations - black, white, red, yellow, and blue phones.

Smartphone Asus ZenFone 4 A400CG has a classic arrangement of navigation elements. Three physical keys are just under the screen (above the decorative panel mentioned above). They are responsible for navigating to the home panel, return to the previous window and opens the tab “Properties”. In addition, on the sides (and in fact - on the sides of the removable covers) are the audio buttons and blocking.


Regarding the display situation arose a few double-digit. On the one hand, technical characteristics are not the enviable: the resolution is 800 x 480 pixels, diagonal - 4 inches, the density is 233 pixel. The screen operates based on the TFT technology, which in itself cannot provide such a color reproduction as an IPS-matrix.

On the other hand, we see that dedicated Asus ZenFone 4 A400CG reviews point out quite tolerable quality of the image displayed on the display. This is evident by the negligible changes in illumination when you angle the device.

Another plus screen mounted on the described model, is the presence of a special layer of oleophobic coating. Thanks to him, first, increases the speed of sliding your finger across the surface of the display, and secondly, reduces the degree of susceptibility of the screen to fingerprints. Due to this, you can see them far less than on the phones without such a layer.

Note the possibility of working with colour and degree of quality of images on the screen at the expense of Splendid. It is by default installed on all Asus devices, the user can change the color temperature, hue, saturation display.

Operating system

According to tradition, again, for all ZenFone devices (and describe us is no exception) is established graphical shell ZenUI. It looks somewhat similar with the fifth generation of Android (at least, this idea suggests gradients and visual design of Windows). In fact, in the smartphone Asus ZenFone 4 A400CG has installed Android 4.4.4. About whether there is a device upgrade to the latest version of the Assembly, there is no information.


The Platform on which the apparatus has a high frequency response and therefore may not provide high enough performance to work with “bulky” applications. However, for most of those games, which are presented with normal and minimum requirements (in terms of performance), smartphone Asus ZenFone 4 A400CG (reviews confirm this).

Speaking from a technical point of view, we are talking about the processor Intel Atom Z2520, built on two cores with a clock frequency of 1.2 GHz. Memory here has a capacity of only 1 GB, which is continuously available is 300 MB.

The internal memory of Asus ZenFone 4 A400CG 8 GB. Reviews note the ability to connect a memory card, which is expandable up to 32 GB.


On the device that we describe in this review, a battery capacity of 1200 mAh. Of course, for a device with such functionality is not enough, therefore, even in read-only mode if you set the screen brightness at the level of 25-35 percent, the unit will be able to work no more than 8-9 hours. If we talk about the games, this figure can be safely divide by 3. It is not surprising that many users are complaining in their reviews on a low level of autonomy of the smartphone.

To combat this in several ways. The first is to significantly reduce energy consumption, to try to install on your smartphone any app, controlling, optimizing background processes and the like. The second is to just use a portable charging stations (like the PowerBank) and wear them when you need to increase the duration of operation of the device.

And so, considering the small thickness of the body, it is not surprising that the developers chose such a small battery element with a larger capacity simply would not fit in the device.

Asus ZenFone 4 A400CG White (reviews about the device we present after our review) comes with 2 cameras with matrices a resolution of 5 and 0.3 megapixels. Capabilities cameras phone is wide enough: you can shoot video in FullHD-quality, available in a variety of settings for more stable shooting and so on.

In fact, as reported about Asus ZenFone 4 A400CG White reviews, you can make sure that the cameras have saved. Settings that can be skillfully operate on a more functional generation of the ZenFone 5, simply do not save the situation.

It should be accepted, given the cost of the phone and its position in the line of Asus products.


The Phone supports Wi-Fi modules, Bluetooth, USB; there are, of course, the adapter for receiving a GSM signal in the networks of all formats, including 3G-connection (high speed Internet). In addition, it should be noted the opportunity to work with two SIM-cards that will make your mobile device more beneficial to use. However, how to describe model Asus ZenFone 4 A400CG 1A356RUS reviews, due to the fact that there's only one radio module, the second SIM card is disabled during a call.


In the technical description of a smartphone, posted on the official website, stated about the special technology of improving sound quality of the device, called SonicMaster. Supposedly, by default it increases the clarity of sound using hardware and software filters.

In practice, again, the situation is somewhat different. As noted in the number of describing phone Asus ZenFone 4 A400CG reviews, phone sounds bad to update the firmware. After it, probably, to the device installed some new software handlers for audio, so the sound quality increases significantly. But then again, given the class of the smartphone, to hope for something supernatural is not necessary.

We have provided a number of technical descriptions of the device, based on the experience of interaction with it. Now, for a more objective review, you need to specify to describe Asus ZenFone 4 A400CG 1B360RUS reviews left by other buyers. At least this will help to identify the strengths and weaknesses that we disclose failed.

However, the hidden advantages of the smartphone does not find its "strengths" and so visible due to a technical description.
