2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Beautiful, stand-out design - a curved rear that fits nicely into the palm of your hand, a glossy back, and most importantly, a 6.4 in full-screen display free of bezels and notches
  • A neatly positioned, well thought-out alert and charge light - in the top right corner just above the screen
  • A handy, configurable Smart Key (defaults to Google Assistant) - you can configure it to have specific single-press, double-press and long-press actions
  • The physical fingerprint sensor at the back is fast, and conveniently positioned, for both left- and right-handed use
  • Large, clear, immersive 6.4-inch screen with minimal bezels, and of course, no notch
  • ZenUI 6 is leaner, faster, more streamlined than before, and close-to-stock Android - making it now one of the best and most clean Android UI implementations around, along with OxygenOS
  • There are range of tweaks of course - OptiFlex (learns which apps you use and loads them faster than the norm), Dark Mode (essentially replaces the white background with a black one easing eye strain), Smart Volume (sets media, ringtones and call volume to a level appropriate to ambient noise) - there are plenty of other tweaks too, but they are less obtrusive than previous iterations of ZenUI
  • Asus also adds a range of its own apps including a gallery, file manager, weather app, data transfer tool, sound recorder and its own camera app - which are handy - and there is no unnecessary bloat
  • Top-end flagship performance with the flagship Snapdragon 855 underneath - the Zenfone 6 is in fact one of the cheapest phones at present to pack the 855
  • Of course, the highlight of the Zenfone 6 is the clever, unique flip camera system
  • Asus has thought not just about removing the front camera for the 'full screen' experience, but also about enhancing the camera's usability - the result is not just another pop-up design - open the camera app and the dual rear-facing lenses are used in the usual way - switch to selfie mode and the camera housing swings out from the back of the handset until the two lenses sit proud of the top of the phone, facing forwards!
  • The camera system consists of dual cameras - a 48MP primary camera + a 13MP ultra-wide camera, that can create some cool framing opportunities
  • The image quality is very impressive - even considering the excellent competition - in daylight shots, you can expect a great deal of detail, while indoor shots too capture texture and detail well
  • The special camera setup means there are a bunch of smart features, like motion tracking (set this off and the camera will follow a moving subject, as long as it's moving slowly), and a motorized panorama mode (select it and hold the camera steady, and the flip lens moves through its full 180 degrees, shooting as it goes)
  • Night mode shooting captures quite a lot of detail
  • Great video quality, with very capable stabilization, and range of video modes - the ability to record at [email protected] with EIS is a nice touch, too
  • Finally, of course, the best outcome from the flip camera mechanism is that you now get to use the same excellent rear cameras as your front cameras as well - this means that the selfie quality is pretty much unrivalled, when compared to even the best of camera phones
  • There is some added shot-framing flexibility as well - if you hold the selfie button a slider pops up that can be used to rotate the camera housing into a particular position -- perhaps using it as a stand, or to get a shot that's at an awkward angle
  • Finally, what you are getting is excellent quality in daylight and low light, image and video, front and back - making for one of the best camera phones, especially in this price bracket (and yes, it's a significant way ahead of the OnePlus 7)
  • Nice stereo speakers - they deliver plenty of volume, and reasonably good quality
  • The other big highlight of the Zenfone 6, apart from the flip camera setup, is the exceptional, class-leading battery life, powered by a huge 5000mAH battery - you are going to get 2 days of use from this beast with moderate use
  • Quick Charge 4.0 support
  • No 2 ways about it, Asus has delivered a surprising capable, sublime mid-ranger here, and given OnePlus a lot to worry about
  • A great camera setup, and an excellent battery life are the highlights - and add to that some nice-to-haves that are increasingly harder to find in the high-end segment like a headphone jack, a status LED, and a dedicated microSD slot, and you can see how the Zenfone 6 makes a really compelling case for itself
  • The 2 main competitors will be the OnePlus 7 (better AMOLED display, but not as good cameras), and Pixel 3a (better cameras, but behind in most other areas) - and the Zenfone 6 is likely to compete well against these champions
  • Immaculate fit and finish, and a pleasing, premium design - very similar to the OnePlus 6T
  • Pretty good ergonomics (similar to the OnePlus 6T, and better than the heavier/larger OnePlus 7 Pro)
  • The in-display fingerprint reader is very good - and even a bit faster than the already good one on the OnePlus 6T
  • Big, beautiful 'dewdrop' notch AMOLED display, again quite similar to the OnePlus 6T
  • OnePlus’ Reading mode is still there and is as useful as ever - it turns the screen to a reading-optimized monochrome, and it can be assigned to activate when you’re in certain apps
  • OxygenOS continues to be one of the most thoughtfully-designed, clean (stock-like) UIs for Android
  • 2 new features that make it to the latest version of OxygenOS are screen recording, and Zen Mode (for exercising more control over your screen time)
  • With the super fast flagship Snapdragon 855, some ultra fast storage speed (UFS3), the OnePlus 7 is a speed beast, and matches other top-end flagships
  • Good dual rear camera setup - there a primary 48MP camera and a secondary 5MP depth sensor
  • Overall image quality is good - it takes great outdoor shots, with vibrant colours and good exposure - and is a decent improvement over the OnePlus 6T (though not as good, or as versatile as the camera setup on the OnePlus 7)
  • It also has the new Nightscape mode, which lets you capture reasonably bright and sharp images even in very low light situations
  • Good 16MP front camera too
  • Excellent stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos
  • Good battery life with a 3700mAH battery - the OnePlus 7 will make it through a day of intensive use without a problem - and will give you battery life similar to the OnePlus 6T (and more than the OnePlus 7 Pro, which lasts less long because of the more battery intensive 90Hz screen)
  • OnePlus's Dash Charging continues to be one of the better fast charging technologies around - it goes from 10 to 100 percent in just 1 hour and 15 minutes - though it's a step below the Warp Charge tech on the OnePlus 7 Pro
  • Overall, OnePlus 7 retains the spot of the all-rounder, reliable, no-frills, budget flagship from OnePlus (while the OnePlus 7 Pro takes the more 'premium' flagship approach), giving you a high-end flagship experience for relatively less - and it makes for a decent update to the OnePlus 6T in the performance and camera departments
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Like all glossy backs do, this one too will attract a lot of fingerprints
  • Relatively hefty (190g)
  • Face unlock is not as quick as on other competing phones with the time taken to flip the rear camera forward adding a little delay
  • But the screen is LCD, rather than OLED, so it's not quite as gorgeous as the AMOLED on the OnePlus 7
  • The only phone in this price bracket that is arguably a bit better in overall camera quality is the Pixel 3a
  • Still not fully waterproof (there is some water resistance but it's not IP certified)
  • Like all glossy finish phones (which is an increasing majority of phones these days), the glass back of the phone is a fingerprint magnet
  • It's not quite a match for the new budget-flagship camera champion, the Pixel 3a, however, which is ahead by a significant margin
  • No standard headphone jack - you will need to use either USB-C or wireless headphones (none of which is included in the retail package)
  • No wireless charging support
  • That said though, the budget flagship segment is much more competitive now (unlike when the 6T launched), so you will have some pretty good alternatives as well, not the least of which is the Pixel 3a/XL, which while not as beautiful looking, or as fast, will provide with a much better camera experience, a more compact design, and a headphone jack
