Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Lite Specs
HARDWARE AND DESIGN
When it comes to physical appearance, the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Lite is very similar to its bigger brother – the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie. Its back cover is made up of plastic with a metallic coating and is glittering when subjected to sunlight.
The 3.5mm headphone jack and the microphone are located at the top.
The volume rockers and the power button are on the right side

The tri-slot SIM card and microSD card slot are located at the left side. This is something that you have to check first before buying a smartphone since they support expandable storage without sacrificing your other SIM card.

DISPLAY AND UI
The Zenfone 4 Selfie Lite has a 5.5-inch IPS HD display with 267 ppi density and has a 400nits brightness. Even though it can stand under bright environment, we feel that the colors on the screen are a little bit pale compared to other Zenfone units which support the Asus Slendid software.
The new ZenUI 4.0 is a lot faster and smoother than its previous version. It also removed other unnecessary app and bloatware to make the user interface more clean and junk-free.
The camera interface has a lot of easy access icons in order for users to change their desire setting instantly.

The Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Lite is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad-core processor together with the Adreno 308 GPU. It has a lower CPU & GPU specifications compared to the Zenfone 4 Selfie and this is something that we need to test if there is a huge difference when it comes to the overall performance of the device.
It also comes with 16GB of internal storage and 2GB of RAM. In case you want to expand its storage, it has a dedicated microSD card slot that can support up to 2TB of storage.
