Here is Asus Zenfone 5z review. This handset competes with the Flagship killer the OnePlus 6. This review covers the handset performance, gaming, camera quality with samples and battery life. No doubt the 5Z is competing with the OnePlus 6, but does the features and the price make it a better option?

Build and finishing is really good, glass on the back and on the front does give the Asus Zenfone 5Z a premium look, feels good to hold too, but also makes it a bit slippery. There is hybrid slot you can use a micro SD card if need be.

Weight is 165 grams and thickness is 7.7mm. The 6.2 inch screen, a Super IPS display with 2246 x 1080 pixels looks great, quality is really good plus screen comes with Gorilla Glass Protection. Along with auto brightness there is also auto color temperature option that will adjust the color based on the ambience.

Inside the hood the Zenfone 5Z is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa core processor coupled with Adreno 630 GPU plus this one comes with AI Boost. As for RAM ROM the basic version starts with 6GB/64GB. Zenfone 5Z supports dual VoLTE.

Coming to the camera there is 12MP + 8MP dual cameras on the back these are SONY IMX363 – 12MP and another 8MP wide angle lens. Front camera is 8MP. Rear camera aperture is f/1.8 and front camera is 2.0.

Handset can shoot 4K videos at 60fps, there is OIS and EIS for stable video shots and they work really well. You can also record slow motion videos at 240 fps in 1080p or in 720p resolution. The camera also makes use of AI, it can automatically detect the scene and adjust the camera settings accordingly. Both front and rear cameras can shoot in Bokeh mode.

Camera quality is awesome, looks great on the handset screen and on PC too. Edge detection is pretty good, impressive. There is 3 axis EIS for rear camera and there is also ZeniMoji Live Emoji option. You can shoot in Wide angle using front as well rear camera. To check the samples watch the video at the end.

There are dual speakers (5 Magnet with dual NXP smart Amp). The notch on the screen if you don’t like you can hide it. There is LED notification, OTG is supported. Plus you also get face unlock and finger print unlock.

Battery performance is also pretty good as per premium smartphone standards, you get 1 day of battery life. It took me 1 hour 30 minutes to charge from 9% to 100%. Heatup is under control and this handset can play high end games with ease.

I got a score of 268K on Antutu. So this handset for the price and features will give a tough competition  to the OnePlus 6. As for which handset is better and which handset as better camera you will need to wait for the comparison video.

You can buy the Asus Zenfone 5Z from Flipkart from 9th for Rs. 29,999 plus get Rs. 3000 additional discount if you use ICICI bank credit or debit card.
