The design of Asus Zenfone 3 is made up of glass and metal like Samsung Galaxy S7. We have a fingerprint scanner. This is a slippery smartphone. You will have a love or hate relationship with the glass phones. It is completely glass on both the sides. It feels like a disaster waiting to happen with such a slippery feel.
The Asus branding is positioned at the backside. The metal body looks very stylish and awesome which is quite attractive. The stereo speakers are at the top of the device and there is also a secondary noise cancellation mic. There is no IR blaster available. The branding comes on the back. The volume rockers and the power button placed at the right sides which are made up of metal and gives a good feel. The built quality feels nice.
To the left, there is a sim slot again. Which is a dual sim hybrid sim slot. It has a front camera and there is a notification light on the upper panel to its right side. A sensor is also present on the upper panel. There is one speaker at the bottom. The USB cum power slot comes at the bottom. Its dimensions 152.6 x 77.4 x 7.7 mm and weighs around 155grams.

The fingerprint scanner gives the hectic feedback when we are tapping. We are also getting 100 GB of Google drive which is an additional offer to this smartphone. The device is running on Asus own UI. The UI is similar to the earlier versions of the UI in Zenfones. The navigation buttons are not backlit which is quite disappointing. The device feels light and not heavy.
Out of the 64GB, you get about 52GB free space which is more I would say. However, there is a sd card option when I should use only one sim. So regarding storage, we would not have any problem. Some of the default apps can be removed. All the Zenfones come with lots of junkware which is very irritating and only some can be uninstalled which is bad.
The UI feels old school. The camera is very good. Most of the part I felt the pictures are really good. And the front facing camera is also decent but the beautification is when off also smoothens the pictures. You ca record the videos in full HD. The performance is very nice and smooth. Talking about the display the viewing angles are really good. And the display colors also really good. The 3000mAh non-removable battery supplies a very good energy to the smartphone.
Asus Zenfone 3 has really fantastic performance. It is available at a price of Rs.27,999/-. It is a mid-range phone with an awesome design. Good product with a very good battery support. It comes with snapdragon chipset. It runs on Marshmallow that is android V.6.0 which is the best thing. The design is also perfect.
