What is the ideal size for a smartphone? The answer is of course subjective, but there has been an obvious trend towards going larger. Models with 5.5-inch screens have dominated the Android market for quite some time now. In fact, it’s pretty hard to find a mainstream Android model with a screen smaller than 5 inches, but there are quite a few larger models at various price levels. We recently reviewed the mid-range Lenovo Phab 2 Plus (Review) and Xiaomi Mi Max (Review), and today we have with us the gargantuan Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra.

Asus ZenFone 3 Ultra (ZU680KL) Summary

The Asus ZenFone 3 Ultra might replace both your smartphone and tablet. Its 6.8-inch screen makes it heavy and unwieldy, although the company has done a good job with design. The display quality is very good, even though the resolution could have been higher. Battery life is also a highlight. Camera quality is strong, but you can get a lot better from similarly priced Android smartphones.

    Its good but rate on the higher side. Excellant in features and suppose so in working. Its fast and no hanging till now. It would have been better if life of the battery be increased, which be good for traveling.
