ASUS ZenFone 6 Review

ASUS ZenFone 6 marks the largest phone within the series of ZenFone. It features 6-inch screen. It appears to be darling of the new lineup, which makes it even more competitive within the market. The device easily fills the hand, which may discourage certain users from obtaining it.


ZenFone 6 has plastic rear and presents in gold and red, together with more standard white or black. It is slimmer compared to its counterparts within the series, measuring just 9.9mm in thickness. It weighs 200 grams roughly, which is normal for a phone measuring this size. Weight of Galaxy Mega 6.3 is 199g, by comparison. The shiny concentric circles underneath screen offer some visual flair and is brilliant-looking, with soft key virtual buttons sitting above bit.


The ZenFone keeps the price low by employing lower-resolution screen compared to certain of its rivals. The phone features display of 720p as opposed to Full High Definition version, even though it is six inches across. This deficiency is clearly visible, unlike with ZenFone 5, but the issue is relatively minor. The In-Plane-Switching (IPS) display otherwise offers decent quality of image for low-cost phone and exhibits great angles of view plus color reproduction ability.


ASUS ZenFone 6 utilizes 2GHz dual-core Intel Atom Processor, which is the same kind employed in ZenFone 5, the Z2580. This chip was first spotted in Lenovo K900 in 2013 and has been hardly used since, though it does deliver good performance for the price the ZenFone 6 costs. The phone initially run on the largely vanilla Android 4.3 version, but should soon feature a new Android interface. Apart from new looks and additional features, the device may present with performance complications such as third-party interfaces.


ZenFone 6 across board is similar to ZenFone 5, although it carries a camera that is of superior kind. It has a 13MP main sensor model, as opposed to 8MP version. Software downgrading ability is among the main software features of new ZenFone phone. Using this feature, software is able to downgrade resolution of camera and improve performance in low-light conditions. It involves grouping together of sensor pixels, creating virtual sensor pixels of larger size. The ZenFone 6 as well carries LED flash plus 2MP front camera.


ASUS ZenFone 6 runs on Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) operating system, having custom ZenUI skin on its top. ZenUI is superb in that it is both clutter-free and clean. App icons appear good and sufficiently large. Pulling down notification shade from top right of screen immediately reveals multiple settings toggles, which closely resemble what is seen in Samsung and LG phones. ASUS provides One Hand Operation setting that is customized further for recreating experience of an average 4.3, 4.5 or even 4.7-inch screen. This helps it maximize on its large screen dimensions to maximum levels. In all, ASUS manages creating a phablet boasting of exceptional hardware components plus good quality of build, as well as decently-performing camera.

  • Pros:
    Ultrafast mobile data support; Powerful action of dual-core processor; Brilliant high-resolution camera
  • Cons:
    Bulky presentation; Non-durable plastic rear
Our score:
4.5 / 5
