Asus ZenFone Zoom Summary

The Asus ZenFone Zoom is unlike any other smartphone available today as it’s the only one to feature optical zoom. With the help of Hoya, Asus has managed to cram in 3X optical zoom without the need for a lens that extends outwards. The phone features an Intel Atom SoC and 4GB of RAM, and is one of the least expensive phones to come with 128GB of storage. The ZenFone Zoom is well built with an aluminium frame and leather back, comes with a functional ZenUI skin, and has good audio and camera capabilities. However, all this does come at a premium. The battery life isn’t the best, there's no 4K video recording, the display resolution is a bit low compared to other models at this price, and it ships with a slightly dated version of Android. With a price drop, the ZenFone Zoom would be better value for those looking for a zoom lens in a smartphone.

  • Stealed a deal- best depth of field camera
    Mohit Bhatt (Dec 27, 2019) on Flipkart
    At 38k phone is extremely overpriced but at 19k phone is just more than awsome. Straight away let's come to pros and cons Pros 1. Hoya lens ....just awsome with 3x optical zoom. Depth of field is great for small objects. performs great in daylight. Still not tested low light 2. Corning gorilla glass 4 3. 128 gb internal a big big thing with 4 gb ram and Intel atom 4.camera functions heavy multivariate landscape,macro all can be used 5 Feels premium with leather back.. Cons 1.No finger print sensor 2 No 4k 3.zen ui has plenty bloat ware 4.13 mp only in the era of 21 mp but pixels doesn't only matter I am using xperia zr a big fan of sony so I am keeping zr reserved for low light but this phone is dslr killer it can be compared to samsung s7 but s7 is of 50k... So go for it if you are avid photographer but don't like dslr
