The Asus Zenfone Pegasus 3 looks cool and not that heavy. The phone is made up of metal and the buttons are also made up of buttons. The buttons do have the texture which shines.
The speaker is right on the bottom. We have the Asus logo. The 13Mp camera, LED flash, fingerprint sensor and a mic all these are located at the rear side. On the right-hand side, we just had the sim card tray slot which is a hybrid kind. And on the top comes the 3.5mm audio jack. On the bottom,
we have the microphone and the charger. On the front, we do have a 5MP camera. The Asus branding is on the lower panel. The navigation buttons are on the display.

The viewing angles are excellent. We can see the screen on pretty much any position. This is a very vibrant and colorful display. Viewing angles are very good. The default wallpaper is also very good. The colors seem to look quite nice. But the screen doesn’t get brighter enough to see in the sunlight. The screen which is not great outdoors but let’s keep the price of the phone in the mind.

Out of the 16GB internal storage around 5.4 GB is used and 10.6 GB is kind of free. Touch gestures are provided including a double tap to wake up the screen, writing alphabets. The double tap feature works extremely fast. There is also power management setting so that you could save some of the battery life. The device runs on Zen UI on top of the Android Marshmallow which is ok and responsive.
The fingerprint sensors are extremely fast. It provides a double vibration when you unlock it which can also be disabled. Coming to the UI it really sucks with the background color and everything. You have to go for other launchers to make it better. The lock screen junk is almost not removable and it kind of irritates you. There are a couple of issues like the device doesn’t allow you to sync the contacts from the Gmail and you have to manually feed everything which is kind of disaster. However, the phone is very snappy and doesn’t slower in any way. The processor provided is doing well enough.
The AnTuTu score is 27968. The geek benchmark score is 620 on the single processor and 1892 on multi-core processor. The device doesn’t get in any way hot and you can play a lot of games without issue. The device is not that expensive and I surprisingly found a lot of sensors. The GPS is quite impressive on this phone and you can handle the maps quite conveniently. The screen sensitivity is also pretty good. All the games did go extremely good.
The most important thing about the smartphones today is the camera. The camera does look promising. The front camera doesn’t look like a bad camera. The picture looks good and the details are average. The pictures seem a little bit washed out.
The camera app looks quite good and it is snappy and has a lot of options. To change picture quality resolution. You do have a lot of options. The camera has a couple of modes itself. Like an HDR mode and so on. A lot of the options in the camera seems to go quite fast.
The pictures taken from the rear camera look quite good. As this is a low priced phone. Getting into the details they don’t look bad at all. If you are recording a video you have to autofocus every now and then. Night time picture doesn’t look any way better. The night time photos are always bad in low range phones so don’t bother much.
The device looks good and performs well and the camera quality is also good. But this phone is not like very impressive as there are other phones which are giving the better performance like Lenovo Vibe K4 than this mobile. The price range of the device is 14K.
