Not the Best Specs for a Flagship Phone
Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom has some awesome features, but it doesn’t too special in software and specifications. First, it doesn’t launch the latest version of Android OS, but only v6.0 Marshmallow. It is not even better than Nokia 6 that has been use Android Nougat as the platform. Chipset injected in this phone is not the best in flagship phone too. It has only Snapdragon 625 chip which is not the fastest chipset from Qualcomm. Meanwhile, to support the graphic performance, they use Adreno 506 for the GPU.

This phone is supported by 4 GB to empower the performance. It is not bad for a flagship phone, but in the early year we have seen phone powered with 6 GB. The storage capacity may help to ‘lift up’ this phone. Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom has basic 32 GB and 64 GB internal storage that is upgradeable to 128 using microSD. This 5.5 inches screen phone only costs for around $450 that is far lower than other flagship phones.
