Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 11 Expert Reviews

What we liked

  • Striking, flamboyant, glass-and-metal design, with strong attention to detail

  • Very good display with a comfortable viewing experience both under the bright sun and indoors - rivaling flagships in brightness and color accuracy

  • Good speed/performance in daily use

  • The new Qualcomm processor is quite efficient in keeping the temperatures under check

  • Both rear and front cameras are pretty good and a significant improvement from the Zenfone 2 series last year (although not as good as the top camera phones in this price bracket, like the OnePlus 3)

  • Good loudspeaker

  • Good audio quality via headphones

  • Good battery life, which is helped by an efficient processor - comfortably lasts a full day

  • Fast fingerprint scanner

What we didn't

  • Because of the glass-based panels, the surface is prone to finger prints and smudges

  • The concentric circle design may be too shiny for some

  • Asus' ZenUI is pretty bloated, with a lot of unnecessary apps, leading to a cluttered experience

  • Although day to day performance is good, there are visible lags on heavy games like Asphalt 8
