 The Indian market’s grow to be as such that manufacturers aren’t afraid to call their competitors. And, Asus isn’t shying away from claiming that its new flagship machine is superior the OnePlus 6. To be truthful, the Asus Zenfone 5Z seems to be prefer it packs a punch. In truth, at a value of Rs 29,999, it presents unbelievable worth for cash.  

Worth and availability

Design and show

That is, in quite a lot of methods, the probably the greatest shows that Asus has launched. It’s not washed out, the colours are crisp and the LCD appears to do justice to the 6.2-inch display screen with a 19:9 show. 

And, the 90% screen-to-body-ratio is sufficient of a delight that you simply simply ignore the chin of the cellphone the place the bezels do stand out. 

However, none of that can matter if you happen to’re out within the blazing daylight unable to see your display screen. Fortuitously, the Asus Zenfone 5Z doesn’t fail in that division both. Visibility appears to be on-point in any respect angles and solar, or no solar, the display screen is brilliant sufficient.

So, once you lastly take the cellphone in yours arms, the very first thing you discover is the way it’s a lot lighter than you anticipate it to be. However within the subsequent on the spot, you’re pulled again to actuality the place you discover is how, regardless that it’s so gentle, you continue to want each your arms for performance. 

Sheep herd mentality

Asus has employed each the traits within the flagship area with the notch and glass again. Each traits, we really feel, are controversial and have but to show themselves. For starters, glass backs look good however they’re way more fragile than aluminium. Their utility is available in once you’re speaking about wi-fi charging, however since that isn’t a function on the Asus Zenfone 5Z, I’m left questioning what objective the glass again actually serves anticipate to ‘look good’.

That being mentioned, Asus has included the notch the place, ought to person select, the cellphone may also grow to be notch-less. Sure, it’s mainly what OnePlus has employed on the OnePlus 6 as nicely. 

The notch on the iPhone X serves a selected objective. However, when different manufacturers make use of the identical design function, they’ve but to elucidate why. There must be extra to it than bezel-less perfection. 

 Efficiency and {hardware} 

The craze over Inventory Android is comprehensible, however Asus does a reasonably respectable job with their very own user-interface (UI) as nicely. Synthetic intelligence (AI) has been built-in into each facet of the cellphone’s performance, from grouping photos in your gallery to suggesting what utility you’re going to make use of subsequent. They’ve taken full benefit of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor’s AI engine.

The interface itself is easy and has functioned with none lags to date. In truth, if you happen to’re a fan of multiplayer  video games, the interface has been tailor-made for ‘immersive’ gaming, particularly conserving PlayerUnknown’s Battleground (PUBG) in thoughts.

Even switching the cellphone on and off isn’t a tedious job because it boots in a matter of seconds. 

With respect to safety, it has face and fingerprint unlock together with the same old security measures. The one factor is that in case your arms are little small, reaching the fingerprint sensor round again may be a bit of little bit of a difficulty.  

Sound and audio

If Asus telephones had been to decide on one distinctive promoting proposition, it ought to be the audio high quality that comes on their telephones. The Asus Zenfone 5Z apparently has a brand new ‘five-magnet’ speaker that guarantees louder volumes and decrease levels of distortion. 

However the perfect half, for us, is that it retains the three.5mm audio jack. Actually, we’ve by no means understood why manufacturers thought it was okay to take that function away when it serves such an integral objective. 

Right here’s what we’ve got a difficulty with although. Synthetic Intelligence (AI) is all nicely and good, however why do that you must have adaptive ringtones? If an individual is not up within the morning, they want their cellphone to be loud. It is solely logical that they’d need to get up when their boss is asking as a substitute of their cellphone making the judgement name the place the environment are too quiet, so the ringtone ought to be at a quiet quantity as nicely. 

Digital camera

That is one function of the cellphone that appears significantly thrilling to us, although a bit of extra time with the cellphone will inform whether or not or not it’s actually up to speed that Asus claims to realize. It has the flagship twin digicam setup in a vertical format with a 12MP important digicam and secondary 8MP wide-angle lens. 

Thus far all of the of images that we’ve clicked in pure gentle have had balanced publicity, correct shade replica and sharp edges. Even indoors, below synthetic gentle, the digicam carried out nicely however, it’s picture stabilization appeared to be missing. Or maybe, we had been simply leaping an excessive amount of.


Since AI is the brand new buzzword that manufacturers are following (not their fault, it’s shoppers demand), even the battery on the Asus Zenfone 5Z has ‘smart charging’. It presupposed to double the battery life that you simply’d usually get out of the cellphone. 

Longevity isn’t a function that may be examined within the quick period of time that we’ve had the cellphone, however what we are able to verify is how lengthy it takes to cost. 

And fairly truthfully, to date, so good. It costs in a jiffy due to QuickCharge 3.Zero and what Asus calls the ‘BoostMaster’.

Early Verdict

It is pretty apparent that the Asus Zenfone 5Z is packed filled with options, and like they’ve reiterated again and again, filled with ‘AI capabilities’. Whatever the AI, the cellphone has lots below the hood to justify its value. 

In truth, it is most likely one of many few flagship telephones available in the market that might be deemed ‘price it’ the place the person comes away feeling as if they’ve gotten extra from their cellphone that they paid for.
