Asus has been known for producing a wide range of tech products and the company has built a good reputation in the smartphone industry. The beautiful-looking Zenfone 3 sports some great specs and a lot of flagship-grade features.
The Zenfone 3 follows a familiar design language we have seen on other Asus phones. It uses a metal trim that goes around the device along with metal buttons. A front and rear is covered with the Gorilla Glass 3 for scratch resistance.
Even though the Zenfone 3 sports a midrange-level Snapdragon 625 chip, this processor has already proven that it is a capable performer both when it comes to day-to-day use and gaming.
Other key specs include 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage (expandable up to 256GB via the microSD card slot) and Adreno 506 GPU.
As far as display goes, we have a 5.5″ 1080p LCD panel, which has a peak brightness output of 600nits.
One of the key selling points of this device is its camera. The Zenfone 3 sports a 16 MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture, laser/phase detection autofocus, OIS (4-axis) and dual-LED (dual tone) flash.
Another key feature is the Hi-Res audio assured by the home-brewed SonicMaster technology. This tech is said to assure a high-quality sound both from the external speaker and via the headset jack.
All in all, the Asus Zenfone 3 shapes up to be a great all-around device. The only shortcoming of it is the mid-level Snapdragon 625 chip. Other than that, the phone seems like a great device for the price and we can’t wait to test it out in our review labs.
You can now pre-order Asus Zenfone 3 from Everbuying.net for $430.94 and the phone will start shipping on October 30th.
