The first article I ever wrote was about the launch of the asus Zenfone 2. It had an incredible 4GB of RAM and cost just $299 — an absolutely insane price at the time for that much memory!

Four years later, asus has preserved this heritage of flagship specs at a mid-range price. While other manufacturers have started charging more than $1,000 for their devices, asus has managed khổng lồ keep its prices low while offering some of the best hardware on the market.

About this review: While writing this review, I used an asus Zenfone 6 supplied by the manufacturer over a period of 11 days in the U.S. And Taiwan. I used the Black model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, running ZenUI 6 on the April 1st, 2019 security patch.

The asus Zenfone 6, also known as the asus 6Z in India, is the company’s latest affordable flagship. It doesn’t thể thao quite as aggressive a look as the gamer-focused hãng asus ROG phone, but it still looks premium enough lớn get attention from a wide variety of people.

If a headphone jack, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, 48MP flip camera, microSD thẻ expansion, and dedicated quick actions button aren’t enough to get you interested in this device, maybe the price is. Hãng asus is offering this phone for just $499, seating it firmly between the px 3a and OnePlus 7 Pro. In a way, it offers the best of both worlds.

There are a couple of features missing from this device that may annoy a few consumers, but I personally felt they were fine lớn omit at this price point. Wireless charging and water resistance are the big offenders, but most mid-range devices don’t have these features so I give it a pass.

What’s in the box

The case has a cutout near the back for the new flip-up camera. The earbuds are tuned by 1MORE and actually sound decent. If you want to lớn take better advantage of the headphone jack though, you can get even better audio chất lượng for just a bit of extra cash.

The Zenfone 6 has a clean design that will appeal to lớn most any consumer. It’s not nearly as gamer-focused as the ROG phone from Asus, but the robotic-looking flip camera & blue accents give it a slightly more aggressive look than phones lượt thích the pixel 3.

The body toàn thân of this device is made of Gorilla Glass, & it sports an aluminum frame around the rim. It feels hefty và premium in the hand, so much so that at first I thought it was actually made wholly of metal. Unfortunately, there is no wireless charging in this device, so it may as well have been made of metal.


This phone comes with a healthy number of ports & buttons. On the right side of the device, you’ll find a power nguồn button with a nice blue accent lớn match the asus logo on the back, volume rockers, & a dedicated quick action button. This button defaults lớn Google Assistant, but you can change it to vì a number of things lượt thích take a screenshot, mở cửa the camera, or change the sound mode.

There aren’t any physical buttons on the left side of the phone, but you will find a dual-SIM tray with a slot for expandable storage. The bottom of the device houses a headphone jack, USB-C port, & a speaker grill.


The back of the phone houses a rear-mounted fingerprint reader and a dual camera array. This camera system is one of the highlights of the device. It physically flips around the đứng top of the phone, which allowed asus to keep the screen không tính phí of cutouts and notches. We’ll get more into this later, but just know this quality camera array is sure lớn turn some heads.

This device does not have an official IP rating for water and dust resistance, but that’s not surprising. Any phone with moving parts is extremely hard lớn make water resistant, và the flip-up camera on the Zenfone 6 is its Achilles’ heel in this case.



6.4-inch IPS LCD display2,340 x 1,080 resolution, 403ppi19.5:9 aspect ratioGorilla Glass 6Probably the most glaring issue with the asus Zenfone 6 is its LCD display. Most high-end smartphones (and even some mid-ranged ones) use OLED panels for deeper blacks, better battery life, và features like always-on display. While an OLED display allows individual pixels to lớn be illuminated, LCD giải pháp công nghệ requires the entire display to lớn be lit, draining more battery & reducing dynamic range.

The other issue with this display is brightness. It maxes out at 600 nits, và I had lớn keep the Zenfone 6 on maximum brightness throughout my time with it. It’s difficult to lớn see the screen outdoors, & I usually only have khổng lồ keep my phones at around half brightness on a daily basis.

Those things considered, the unique of this panel is very good, in multiple respects. It has 100 percent DCP-I3 coverage, meaning it can show that entire color space, và the panel is made of Gorilla Glass 6. It should be more shatter resistant than phones with older Gorilla Glass versions.

The display isn’t obstructed by any sort of notch. This phone uses a flip-up camera & the result is a full-screen display. There is still a noticeable chin at the bottom of the display, but it’s not as big as the chin on the px 3.
