Asus ZenFone 3

1 / 13

Moving up from a budget-oriented segment, the ZenFone 3 is Asus’s attempt to capture the mid-range segment, by positioning the primary model of the ZenFone 3 family of devices at Rs 27,999. While the specifications of the device are good enough to make this smartphone a good mid-range device, one needs to remember that with some major disruptors in the market, such as the OnePlus 3 and the Xiaomi Mi 5. The latter devices offer much better specifications and performance in the same bracket.

OUR VERDICT

The ZenFone 3 is a good companion for multimedia consumers and the younger audience, who need to have a phone that looks as good as it takes photos. It has a better than average battery life and the battery saving techniques ensure that one doesn’t have to throw in a portable battery pack into the already cluttered bag of a college-goer. It is, pricey, considering the competitors in the same price segment with better performance and hardware specifications.
