OK. Early last year, we saw ASUS take a stab at smashing the smartphone camera scene wide open with the introduction of a handset that had 3X optical zoom but had a form-factor that didn’t equal gaffer taping a smartphone to your DSLR. It was an interesting idea, but, as we now know, the device wasn’t a smashing success.
There were many reasons why the ZenFone Zoom flopped, so this year, when ASUS invited me to an undisclosed location in Pahang to try its successor — the brand new ZenFone 3 Zoom — my mission was to find out if they’ve learnt their lessons…and not get killed in some jungle.
Announced during CES 2017, the ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom is now officially available in Malaysia. This replaces the previous ASUS ZenFone Zoom and it comes with a dual-camera set up that has 2.3X Optical Zoom.
ASUS has already began to push the Android 7.0 Nougat update to one of its high end smartphones, the Zenfone 3 Deluxe. But its mid-rangers didn’t get much attention until now.
Smartphone shipments in Malaysia had dropped by 5.9% in 2016 versus the previous year according to IDC Malaysia’s latest report. They reckon this was likely caused by negative economic factors which include our depreciating ringgit against the US dollar.
Despite the annual decline, smartphone shipments had picked up in the last quarter and the top 3 brands were still able to increase their respective market share.

It’s raining phones with ASUS’ 38 Days of Storm giveaway. If you need a phone that doesn’t require frequent charging, here’s your chance to win yourself a brand new ZenFone 3 Max.
The ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom is much improved over its original ZenFone Zoom. Announced at CES 2017, the new photography-centric device is thinner, sleeker and it packs a large 5,000mAh battery. If this is a device you’re looking for, it isn’t as expensive as you think.
We saw this as a leak earlier but now it’s official. The ASUS ZenFone AR is the first smartphone in the world to be Tango-enabled and Daydream VR ready. This means it’ll be able to handle Virtual and Augmented reality.
ASUS’s ZenFone Zoom was an interesting smartphone. It had a full 3x optical zoom lens array wrapped in a smartphone body that didn’t feel incredibly bulky — which was rather refreshing…even if the camera and phone itself was unimpressive. Its follow up ZenFone 3 Zoom, on the other hand, seems a little underwhelming especially in the whole zooming department.
ASUS is launching two smartphones tomorrow and it will be their first smartphone with Google Tango technology. Expected to be called the ASUS ZenFone AR, it comes equipped with several cameras at the back for augmented reality.
