ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom
Yep, we’re doing it. A massive camera comparison with every single high-end flagship smartphone we could get our hands on. Six handsets, seven different tests, and one table.
This is SoyaCincau’s epic flagship smartphone camera comparison. Want to know which flagship smartphone takes the best photos? Well, now you can see and decide for yourself.
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.
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.
With just two weeks away until CES 2017, ASUS has just released its teaser video for its upcoming Zennovation launch event. Now we can confirm that they would be launching not one but two new ZenFones to kick off 2017.
