The camera performance is good and it is definitely one of the good cameras as per devices in this price segment. The detail and the sharpness level is also quite good. The close-up shots have also come pretty good.

The laser autofocus is not really accurate. At times when you are doing a close-up picture, the laser autofocus didn’t do well and you have to touch to focus. But overall the quality of the camera is quite good and at acceptable levels. Low light imaging is quite average. It is not excellent we would say but quite average performance. That is definitely an improvement over the previous cameras in laser series.

VERDICT:

It is happy to see that we get the high-end features at the low-end price. If you are looking for a good budget phone than this one should be considered as at the end of the day all boils down to the price tag.

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.

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.

VERDICT:

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.

DESIGN

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. It is available in Sapphire Black, Moonlight White, Shimmer Gold colors.

DISPLAY

Displaying around 16m colors. The screen to body ratio of the device is 70.6%. The pixel density of the screen is 401ppi. Provided with 5 points multi-touch. Provided with corning gorilla glass 3. Provided with Asus Zen UI 3.0.

FEATURES

Asus zenfone 3 running on OS Android OS, v6.0.1 (Marshmallow). It has been armed with Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 processor and Adreno 506 GPU. Consisting of 4/3GB RAM and 32/64GB internal memory for running apps and huge mass storage. It can be expandable through micro sd slot up to 256GB for storing videos and much more.

It has 3000mAh Li-ion non-removable battery which gives enough juice. It is a dual SIM mobile provided with hybrid sim slots and supports 4G on both sims. Micro USB port 2.0 is available.

PERFORMANCE

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.

VERDICT

The 13MP camera is the best fortaking photos, the images captured are having natural colors with averagedetails.

The front camera gives a very good video calling experience. The mostsurprising thing is it runs on Android lollipop version. Which is very good.The gameplay is ok with mid-range games dont even expect to lay high-endgames. The app loading time is a bit slow because of the less RAM. He graphicquality is pretty nice and the games are running well without any issues orlags or any frame drops. Even the device is working fine with the controller.But when I played Asphalt 8 I felt minor frame drops which are not a big deal.

VERDICT:

 

AsusZenfone 2 Laseris the best smartphone available in this price range. It is the best budgetphone running on Lollipop version. What can you get more than this at thisprice range? It is available at a price range of Rs.9000/-
