Asus ZenFone 3

Description

The Asus Zenfone 3 comes with a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display, which makes it about as large as its predecessor. Under the hood we find a Snapdragon 625 SoC, with 8 Cortex A53 cores running at up to 2.0 GHz and an Adreno 506 GPU. The chip is backed by up to 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of storage. Asus also brags with the 16MP camera on the Zenfone 3. The snapper uses contrast-detection, phase-detection, and laser AF to set the focus in as little as 0.03s – on par with popular flagship smartphones. Keeping the frame steady is a 4-axis OIS system backed by a 3-axis electronic stabilization. The front-facing cam shoots 8MP selfies.

This device is also known as Asus ZE552KL
