Design & Build 

Well, the very fact that ASUS thought about the "sand-blasted aluminum alloy body", make its look & feel premium! with 2.5D curved glass & diamond-cut edges. 

I was under the impression, higher battery meant better results, well, actual computation produced average results of ZenFone 3 Max , with similar price range phones fared much better!  

UI , what's new? 

While the real estate, seems improved with 
5.2-inch screen ,  ZenUI 3.0 has a plethora of apps {sometimes redundant} the UI makes the phone feel , that one is dealing wuth a cluttered 'App Drawer'. 


I did find the 'Mobile Manager', with  power-saving modes, an intelligent dashboard of 4,100mAh battery (a) Performance mode (b)Normal mode (c) Power Saving mode disables network connection when your device is asleep, while Super Saving mode only  keeps your Phone, SMS, and Alarm functions awake with sans the rest of the features disabled. The last mode allows  the user to customize their own power saving style, but it’s not as detailed as one would hope – it’s a matter of choosing between High or Smart screen brightness, and selecting how you want your  phone’s network to behave – there are no micro-management options beyond this point, but it should  be sufficient for the everyday smartphone user..


A 13-MP PixelMaster camera on the rear. It has an f/2.2 aperture lens & a backlight (Super HDR), Super Resolution and Low Light modes for exquisite photographs

Indoor- moderate light {Impressive Detailing of Kitchen-hearth}

Indoor HDR Mode {Well lit/ composed picture}

Macro { #ixora aka "flame of woods"}

Indoor - low light Restaurant

Outdoor- HDR  {Sunset}

Outdoor- well light {Sports Scene} 

And when I thought I had the phone in shatters ....

Final Verdict:

At Rs 17,999,5.5" variant it's a rockstar, & would recommend this phone to anyone who is looking for a smartphone with an overall performance & 5.2" at a price tag of Rs 12,999 price tag & the device even serves as a power bank to charge other devices.
