Description

Asus ZenFone 5Z proudly trots into flagship land with a Snapdragon 845, and three different tiers — 64 GB of storage + 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage + 6 GB of RAM, or 256 GB of storage + 8 GB of RAM. At the front ZenFone 5Z sports a 6.2-inch IPS screen with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The resolution we get is FHD+ (1080 x 2280) to make for some crisp imagery. In the camera department we have a dual setup on the back — a main 12 MP sensor with huge 1.4 μm pixels and a rather large lens aperture of F1.8 takes care for most scenarios. Then, there's the secondary snapper with an 8 MP sensor and a 120-degree wide-angle lens for those larger-than-life shots. On the front, we've got an 8 MP selfie camera.
