Asus ZenFone 3 Review – Your Budget-Friendly Choice

The Asus ZenFone 3 looks undeniably like a premium phone, which is very good choice considering the company has been putting out two generations of plastic phones. But even though it does have the high-end looks, it has a price tag found in a point that won’t have to let you break the bank. Furthermore, you might even be happy to know that it is packed with features that are found in higher-priced smartphones. Ultimately, this phone is definitely worth your time and attention.

The Asus ZenFone 3 is Worth Your Time, and Money

For its looks, the Asus ZenFone 3 has a designed reminiscent to that of an iPhone and the new Samsung Galaxy S7. When holding it, it definitely feels like a premium phone, especially when you compare it to others that go for the cheap plastic builds while located in the mid-range price category. Also, it even has a USB Type-C port, which means that this smartphone joins the ranks of others that are switching to the new standard.

The display of the ZenFone 3 is that of a 5.5-inch Full HD variety and it is one that is bright as it is vibrant. Furthermore, the brains behind the phone is that of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, which is quite snappy with regards to giving the handset the right kind of performance that you would want. Still, it is not as powerful as the Snapdragon 820 chip in which other flagship phones carry. Nevertheless, it is powerful enough to let you play games such as Asphalt 8, and the hit game from Niantic Labs, Pokémon Go without any issues.

Battery life for the handset is also great, as you would be able to get approximately 16.5-hours of continuous use (this is with moderate to heavy usage). This is already decent enough as there are some phones that carry larger batteries that deliver 20-hours (or even more) for its battery life. However, those phones are usually located at a higher price category.

The Asus ZenFone 3 carries around a 16-megapixel rear snapper with a  four-axis optical image stabilization feature. This means that pictures come out sharp and it is quite good even when shooting under low light conditions. Even though it has its own fair share of hiccups and niggles here-and-there, this is one smartphone that wallet watchers should not miss out on. While it is still quite literally a mid-ranged smartphone, the features that you get with it makes up for its price tag, and even more.
