ASUS is not considered as a big name in smartphone market. As compared to Apple, Samsung, HTC and other such names, ASUS is comparatively a new name in this filed. But with the launch of its new smartphone, Asus ZenFone 6, it has finally made its place in the smartphone world. Offering all the latest features and technologies in an affordable price, ZenFone 6 has appealed wide market.
With a large 6 inch display it falls in the category of phablets. ASUS has kept the bezel thin so it does not get the look of cheap bulky phone. Having a 9.9mm thickness and 196g it is good to look at and easy to hold. You could also find thinner phablets from different brands but they do not come at this affordable price. The smooth plastic back with a soft matt finish can be removed and replaced with various colors including white, gold and red. It features a concentric circle design and does not come with extra buttons which makes it look elegant. The volume and power buttons are on the sides. The biggest drawback in the design is that the button in the bottom of the display does not have a backlight so it becomes difficult to press the right button in the dark.
The 6 inch HD 1280×720 IPS display with pixel density of 245ppi is a good shot at this price. While using it you will find it quite bright and vivid. ASUS also gives an exclusive app dubbed as Splendid which allows you to adjust the display settings according to your needs and requirements. Its vivid mode is best than others, it offers brighter and sharper images and visuals.
Driven by a powerful Intel’s Atom Z2580 dual-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz. It gives you high level performance. When this processor is combined with 2 GB RAM it offers you more responsiveness and gives an altogether better experience. Storage options include 16GB or 32 GB of built in storage, plus there is a SD card slot that allows you to upgrade it to 64GBs. As far as wireless connectivity is concerned, it has Bluetooth and 802.11 b/g/n WiFi. Another plus point of ASUS ZenFone 6 is it is a dual SIM device. All those who want to use two number, one for professional and one for personal life, then ASUS ZenFone 6 can be a good option for them.
All those who consider camera as one of the most essential thing will be happy to buy ZenFone 6. It comes featuring a 13Mp camera that comes with LED flash and an f/2.0 aperture that uses the company’s PixelMaster technology. The pictures are quite clear but sometimes they lack sharpness, you get the idea of the sharpness once you crop a picture.
ASUS ZenFone is not for those who want a device they can easily carry in their pocket because of its size and weight it is not a pocket friendly device. Anyhow after reviewing its features we came to a conclusion that it offers some of the amazing things which other smartphones could not offer in this price.
