Design and Display:
Asus too like OPPO has decided to imbibe the Notch from the iPhone X. That’s right. This one too will be featuring a notch on top. The phone from the designs perspective replicates the iPhone X. On the display front, the 6.02-inch screen features a screen to body ratio of 90% along with a 96 NTSC colour scale. The automatic temperature dependant colour change makes for an enhanced viewing experience. The Corning Gorilla Glass protects this masterpiece from physical damage.
The Asus Zenfone 5Z features a 3300 mAh battery that supports fast charging feature to enhance your experience. The Asus Zenfone 5Z looks like it’s behind on the juice numbers as it does not show-case the large battery capacities like on those from Xiaomi. That said, fast charging, advanced operating systems, and a energy saving processor ensures longer battery life.
The internal storage on the 5Z goes as high as 256GB and supports the use of a memory card up to 2TB. That’s right, it’s very unlikely that you would run out of storage space when using this smarty.
The Asus Zenfone 5Z is a premium smartphone that will definitely give OnePlus 5, S8, and the Mi Mix 2. The phone checks every box that one would want to from a premium smartphone. The pricing is apt and it feels like its worth the wait.
