ASUS ZenFone 3 Hands on http://www.mobilegeeks.com The ASUS Zenfone 3 (ZE552KL) comes to market with a 5.5 inch Super IPS+ LCD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a screen to body ratio of 77.3%. With gorilla glass on the front and back we’ve got a smoother aesthetic on the front with the 2.5D contoured edges and a metal frame. Under the hood we have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 with is a 14nm Octa-Core processor with 8 x 1.4Ghz ARM cortex A53 with an Adreno 506 GPU and 4GB of RAM and upto 64GB of memory.
Connectivity wise we’ve got WiFi 802.11ac %g/2.4G, MiMo WiFi and up to Cat 6 LTE. bluetooth 4.2 and type C UsB 2.0 along with dual Micro SIM (one 4G the other 3G), GPS, AGPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU and Android M with ZenUI 3.0.
The fingerprint sensor on the rear is capable of 360 degree recognition and you can register 5 fingers. When it comes to audio you have high rez options a new 5 magnet speaker and NXP Smart AMP.
The camera sports a 16MP ASUS PixelMaster 3.0 and a Sony IMX298 camera sensor the camera with a f/2.0 6 element largan lens, 0.03 TriTech Autofocus, 4 Axis OIS, 3 axis EIS, a color correction sensor and Dual tone LED flash. On the front we have a 8MP shooter with an 85 degree wide view. While technically the Zenfone 3 does not have the the latest sensor like it’s more sophisticated bigger brothers this doesn’t mean that we’re experiencing a notable difference in camera quality. Admittedly it’s hard to judge the camera at a launch event, especially since ASUS has shown us with the Zoom that they can really improve photo quality with camera updates further down the line. So far we’re cautiously optimistic that we’d even be happy with the Camera on the Zenfone 3.
The metal edges of the Zenfone 3 are sandblasted which makes them feel almost velvety to the touch. The fingerprint sensor is well positioned on the back and was easy enough to reach.
