Description

The Asus ZenFone 6 is a handset with a 6-inch IPS touchscreen, the resolution of which is a rather disappointing 720 by 1280 pixels. But it is nice that the display can be operated through gloves. An Intel Atom processor is taking care of all the heavy computations – a 2GHz Z2580 CPU with Quad-Thread Hyper-Threading technology. There's also 1GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, and a pretty large, 3230mAh battery. The 13MP camera on the device features the so-called ASUS PixelMaster technology. Color options include Charcoal Black, Pearl White, Cherry Red, and Champagne Gold.

Display

  • Physical size:
    • 6.0 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 720 x 1280 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 245 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
