This year, ASUS showed us that they wanted to play with the big boys in the premium market. Not only did they revamp the entire ZenFone lineup, they also radically redesigned their handsets, shedding the stigma of being cheap and cheerful.

The resulting device was the all new ZenFone 3. It’s made out of brand new glass and metal materials which is a far cry from the plastic days of the ZenFone 2. They’ve also included a fingerprint scanner, a more capable 16-megapixel camera as well as a revamped ZenUI Android skin.

Inside, it’s now packing a Snapdragon 625 processor that features a 14nm process for maximum efficiency and performance. Couple that with a generous 4GB of RAM and this smartphone is as smooth as butter.

While the model that we’ve chosen sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display, the ZenFone also comes in a 5.2-inch form factor that’s RM200 cheaper.

For more information, check out our review of the ASUS ZenFone 3.
