Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Nice, all-metal, understated design
  • Despite featuring a 5.5-inch screen, the ZenFone 3 Laser fits relatively easy in one hand
  • Good full-HD IPS display - good color reproduction, rich blacks, good brightness level, decent sunlight legibility, wide viewing angles
  • ZenUI interface has improved over time and the latest version is lighter, cleaner, and uncluttered
  • Decent overall speed/performance
  • Decent rear camera - has a fast (laser) focus, captures good amount of detail, and has decent colour reproduction
  • Does decently well with low-light conditions too
  • Video recording performance is also good with the electronic image stabilisation (EIS) feature coming in handy
  • The front camera is also decent and takes selfies quickly
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint scanner
  • The speakers are loud enough
  • Bundled earphones are decent for music quality with minimal distortion at higher volumes
  • Decent battery life - is able to last a day with moderate use
  • Excellent, top-notch build quality
  • Handsome, classy, all-metal design
  • Slim body
  • Basic back cover included in the retail package
  • Excellent, fast fingerprint scanner, embedded in the home button
  • Very good display with exceptional brightness levels, natural looking tones, good contrast levels, and excellent viewing angles
  • ColorOS is fluid, and works well, with some nice gesture controls
  • Very little bloatware
  • Smooth overall performance
  • Decent overall rear camera, especially for still photography
  • Very good front camera - easily one of the best selfie phones in this price bracket
  • Decent battery life - lasts a full day with moderate use
  • Good loudspeaker
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • The edges of the Micro-USB port and the two screws on the bottom are a bit sharp
  • The display is a fingerprint magnet and you will need to clean it from time to time
  • Although the UI itself is light, the phones comes loaded with plenty of bloatware including Asus's own apps like Themes, Photo Collage, Mini Movie, ZenCircle, ZenSync, Weather, Do It Later, Game Genie, ZenFone Care, and Cover
  • The ZenFone 3 Laser, unlike other ZenFone 3 smartphones, doesn't support fast charging
  • The overall speed/performance is strictly middling and falls significantly behind other top phones at this price level
  • Lacks fast charging support
  • A little bit on the heavy side
  • Display resolution could have been better
  • Misses out on fast charging support
  • 1080p video recording quality is subpar
