The ZenFone Live games a 5-inch show alongside 2.5D glass that curves at the edges. It has the forward-looking shooter, selfie flash, proximity sensors along with the metal mesh earpiece over the show. Asus has settled on capacitive touch button for navigation rather than on screen button. Unfortunately, these buttons are not illuminated. The volume and power/lock buttons on the ZenFone Live are situated on the right and have the same finished wrap up. An alternate surface would have made it less demanding to recognize the two. On the left side is the hybrid SIM plate that can house two Nano SIM cards or one Nano SIM alongside a microSD card.
The Asus ZenFone Live has a Micro-USB port, a solitary speaker flame grill, and a microphone port at the base and a 3.5mm sound attachment and optional amplifier on the top. At the back, a 13-megapixel camera sits over the single LED flash and a metallic Asus logo is decorated close to the center. The ZenFone Live does not have a finger print sensor.
A Qualcomm Snapdragon Quad Core Processor powers the Asus device. Strangely, a 2013 processor, the Snapdragon 400, powers the smartphone that is launched in 2017. The processor is timed at 1.5GHz and there is 2GB of RAM installed.
