Just because you want a fancy-looking new smartphone doesn’t mean you have to subsist solely on cup noodles for the rest of the year. You’ve got so many more options today than ever before and now you can add one more Android smartphone to the list. Here is the ASUS Live, a smartphone with plenty of personality at a more budget-conscious price.

After the Asus ZenFone 2 launched last year, the company followed it up with variants that had a fast focus camera and killer battery life. In the case of the ASUS Live, which isn’t officially a part of the ZenFone line, what you get is a phone that looks good without costing too much money.

Performance should be perfectly adequate, even if the specs aren’t terribly impressive. Instead of the Intel Atom processor we’ve been seeing from ASUS, the ASUS Live gets a MediaTek MT6580, a quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz. Behind the 5-inch 720p display, you’ll find 16GB storage, 2GB RAM, microSD expansion, a 2070mAh battery, 8MP camera, and 2MP selfie cam. Buyers get two years of 100GB Google Drive too.

With your choice of several color combinations, the ASUS Live is being listed at $210 in Brazil, a market where phones have typically been a bit more expensive. If this rebranded ZenFone Go makes its way onto North American shores, I imagine it could get under the $200 threshold handily.
