Description

The highlight of the Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom is its camera. On its back we have a 12MP main camera paired with a secondary 12MP shooter sporting a 3X zoom lens. You know, kind of what the iPhone 7 Plus stands out with. And that's okay. Cameras aside, the Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom is shaping up as a well-rounded mid-range Android handset. Key selling points include its 5.5-inch AMOLED display, the rear-positioned fingerprint scanner, and the metal construction treated to a stylish finish. But the huge, 5000mAh battery is what we're most impressed by.
