Asus ZenFone 5Z ZS620KL Price

Expert Review

The Asus Zenfone series has been rather a successful name in the smartphone market. The Asus Zenfone 5Z is Asus’s venture into the premium smartphones range for 2018. The Asus Zenfone 5Z price in India is speculated to be on a higher end at INR 39,999. The release date in the Indian market should be sometime before the end of April. So, if you are contemplating on buying this phone, this speculative review could give you better insights. 

What’s hot? 

8GB RAM, AI in the camera interface, night HDR, Snapdragon 845 processor, expandable memory up to 2TB, Dual rear camera, Android Oreo.

What’s not? 

3300 mAh non-removable battery, lacks a dedicated microSD slot. 

Processor: 

The Asus Zenfone 5Z comes with a premium processor to give you the premium smartphone feel. Running the show is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 64-bit Octa-core processor that is paired with 8GB RAM to deliver an Android experience that is as good as it gets. With Android Oreo running along with the built-in Zen UI the experience is matchless. Processing large multi-player games is a breeze for the Asus Zenfone 5Z, thanks to the Adreno 630 best in class GPU. 

Camera: 

The optics department in the Asus Zenfone 5Z is one of the best and will definitely keep its competition at bay with its specifications, features, and usability options. The AI used in the camera’s enable AI Scene Detection in 16 types: food, sky, green field, plant, ocean, sunset, snow, flower, stage, dog, cat, people, text, tripod, QR code, night view, AI Photo Learning, Real-time Portrait, and Real-time Beautification. The primary camera on this is a dual camera set up with a 12MP rear camera that performs just like a 16MP one, the second camera on the rear features a 120 degree wide angle lens to help you have the best landscaping experience. The secondary camera on the Asus Zenfone 5Z is a 8MP unit with Auto Night HDR, selfie Panorama, and a lot of other exciting features. The AI really takes your photography experience to another level on this one. 

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. 

Battery: 

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. 

Storage: 

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. 

Verdict: 

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.
