Asus ZenFone 6

With the ZenFone 6, Asus aims to deliver a fast, reasonably priced smart phone with a beautiful screen, long battery life, and a good camera. And on paper, we seem to be looking at a recipe meant for success.


There is no notch on the ZenFone 6. There’s no punch-hole camera cutout either. All you have at the front is a spacious screen with rounded corners and a very small chin at the bottom. It's a clean, minimalist, and undeniably cool look that Asus has achieved, and it's great being able to use the display in its entirety when watching video or playing games, without any distractions spoiling the experience. 

Needless to say, ZenFone 6 uses a 6.4-inch IPS LCD display. In terms of resolution it is 1080x2340 that produces sharp visuals, and the peak brightness of 573 nits is sufficient for comfortable outdoor use. For your convenience, you can tweak this in the display settings menu from white balance slider.



There are two cameras on the Asus ZenFone 6, both mounted on the phone's flippy module. The dual camera assembly mounted on a motorized rig flips 180 degrees to take selfies. Amidst, one is a regular 48MP camera for every-day use, and it uses the same Sony IMX586 sensor. The high resolution isn't this sensor’s only strength. At night its large area allows it to absorb more light compared to smaller sensors.

Visual information from four pixels is combined together for greater clarity. ZenFone 6 takes 12MP photos by default. You have the freedom to shoot at 48MP of resolution. Undoubtedly, ZenFone 6 can shoot up to 4K 60fps video, and the produced footage looks very detailed.
