Unboxing a Philippine retail package of Zenfone 5

We’ve posted previously in our Facebook page a first look at ASUS’ upcoming flagship phone, the Zenfone 5. Today, we were able to exclusively get our hands-on to a retail package of this beautiful phone which will be available here in the Philippines starting on Saturday, April 14th, once ASUS Philippines launch this officially.

Nevermind the hitchhiker thumb 🙂

The box looks elegantly simple. The box comes in a midnight blue color overall. A bare Zenfone 5 name in front of the box and ASUS’ “We Love Photo” tagline for the Zenfone series starting from it’s Zenfone 4 line-up.

Looking inside the package, we will see a box with all the manuals inside. Surprisingly, a case also comes inside this box so end-users won’t have to buy a 3rd party case for their Zenfone 5. We’d like to note that the case is also transparent which is, in our opinion, a good way to showcase the beautiful back panel of the Zenfone 5 with ASUS’ famous concentric circle design.

Beneath this small box inside, we are greeted with the device enclosed in a protective plastic but we won’t get into details about it for now. Below the device, we will see the usual charger brick, USB to USB C cable, earphones, and extra earphone tips, all of which are unfortunately still white.

That’s quite everything already inside the box. We’ll dig deeper, announce the SRP, and review the device once it is officially launched on Saturday. Drop your comments below for questions so we can cover it once we get our hands-on.
