The ASUS ZenFone 3 is a decent smartphone. However, even with the premium pitch, there’s no stand out factor running for it. There is a little color shift when viewing it from extreme angles, but that’s the case with most smartphones. Battery life is good. The fingerprint scanner can be used to answer incoming calls.The camera focusses nicely and quickly.
The Good
  • Good, ergonomic design
  • Exceptional battery life
The Bad
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Average performance
  • No Gorilla Glass protection
