Asus Zenfone Zoom is an expensive smartphone, at about $645, but is it worth its money? Well, you can surely find a little better smartphone for this price, but Asus Zenfone Zoom is also a great one. It sports a 5,5″ 1080p IPS LCD display which is great here. It’s vivid, precise in color reproduction and overall sharpness is great, although we’d like 2K resolution here. Hardware-wise, Asus Zenfone Zoom boasts an Octa-core 2.3 GHz and PowerVR G6430 GPU. While the GPU is high-end here, this CPU isn’t but it’s still a solid performer, although not for high-end class.
Luckily, Asus Zenfone Zoom comes with 2 GB or 4 GB of RAM, which is great for multitasking and some games. A 13 MP camera here does a good job of capturing videos in 1080p at 30 fps, while the 5 MP camera is well-worthy when it comes to skype calls and taking selfies. The phone is heavy and 12mm thick.
Being a smartphone launched at the end of 2015, Asus Zenfone holds its own with its great 1080p display and a solid octa-core 2.0 GHz CPU. It works well for me and i bought it somewhat after launch. Good buy for the money.
