It's a great phone at a stunning price, but the current issue with randomly locking up is a total deal-breaker. When Asus is able to fix it, the Zenfone Live L1 may be the best you can buy for $110, and I'll be falling over myself to recommend it to those on a budget, but even then it won't be without its faults. A fingerprint sensor and an extra gig of RAM would be a nice start.
