The best battery backup with promised 24hr battery backup with optimized use and control. We recommend Xiaomi Mi3, then any other smartphone in the market.

Asus Zenfone 5

The Asus Zenfone 5 is made of plastic and doesn’t give premium appearance. It is for the people who prefer so called “Branding”, even if it is “Chinese”, just like Xiaomi. Even if the build quality of Zenfone 5 is at the top notch, when it comes to comparison with Xiaomi, it is at the bottom line with more cons superseding Pros. Asus Zenfone 5 comes with Gorilla display, fine radial and metallic texture on the buttons. On continuous usage, you will loose the texture and metal paints goes away. The best thing is its curvy design that gives the look to hold it right on the hand.

Asus zenphone vs Mi3
When it comes to processor, it comes with Intel Atom processor. It is actually a dual core processor, rather than quad core Snapdragon 800 quad core processor, regarded as fastest processor in Xiaomi MI3. And yeah you can experience best multi-tasking, HD movies and gaming more obviously as per Asus promotes itself. I dont know how a Dual-core can make best performance than Quad core. Additionally, Asus’ custom interface adds nice touches to the user experience — be it in the area of managing SIMs, changing audio output to suit your preferences, recording calls, etc. 

“If you are the creative sort, you will like the Zenfone’s camera UI, which includes presets that let you take low-light shots, pictures where everyone is smiling, create GIF animations and more”
