ASUS Zenfone 8 review: powerful, small and clumsy
Unremarkable and unforgettable. This is the latest way I describe Asus Zenfone 8 Android smartphone. That doesn’t mean it is a bad phone. It has a high-end processor that can quickly run all the applications I want, and its compact design makes it easy to use with one hand. It also does not cost a thousand dollars. Depending on the configuration, its price is between $599 and $799 (although Asus stated that the pricing is not final).
However, there is no style behind the essence. Compared with similar products, Zenfone 8 is almost indistinguishable. If I read the dictionary boredly, I would like to see pictures of this phone.it is and so Stiff, which is surprising, considering that it is from the same company that is flashy ROG phone 5. But hey, sometimes it’s GM’s victory.
Compare Zenfone 8’s specifications with higher-priced phones OnePlus with Samsung It’s easy to be moved. It houses the same flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chip inside, with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space (a 256 GB model is also available). Support for Universal Flash Storage 3.1 also means that it can be comparable to its peers in read/write speed to speed up the loading time of applications and games.
It’s not easy to find this kind of functionality and speed at a price of $599. You don’t need to worry about your favorite games stuttering or lagging when switching between apps. You can even get a high sampling rate of 240 Hz (a measure of the speed at which the touch screen records the lightness of the finger).Paired with a 120 Hz screen refresh rate (the number of times the monitor refreshes to show you a new image), scroll and play things like Odmar It feels smooth and responsive.
Even better, if today’s phone is too big for you, then Zenfone 8 will make you satisfied.this is not right iPhone 12 mini, But the size is the same as Google’s Pixel 5. I can touch all parts of the 5.9-inch screen with my thumb.It’s very special because there aren’t many small Today’s Android phones, let alone phones with flagship performance.
Speaking of the screen, the AMOLED panel is clear and colorful, although I hope it can be brighter outdoors.Corning’s superhard materials provide it with protection Gorilla Glass Victus, Behind is Gorilla Glass 3.You definitely need a protective cover because you will Put down this phone; the matte texture on the back is super slippery! Fortunately, the glass coating has proven to be surprisingly durable. I have dropped the phone three or four times now, with almost no signs of wear or obvious damage. I still won’t overwhelm my luck.
There is a 4,000 mAh battery in the Zenfone 8, which usually lasts me a full day, but almost none. If you use TikTok for several hours, you may need to plug it in before going to bed. (These results were performed with the always-on display and the 120 Hz screen turned on; turning it off will extend the battery life to the next morning.)
Its charging speed is not as fast as other flagship products, but with the included 30-watt plug-in charger, you can get more than 50% charging speed in 25 minutes.I like that Asus includes some battery functions of the battery ROG phone 5 Here, just like the ability to charge a mobile phone at a lower speed and limit the charging to 80% or 90%, over time, both will help to extend the life of the battery.
ASUS is also using its Game Genie software here. When playing games, swipe from the edge to the right, and the slide-in menu will enable you to perform game-friendly operations such as disabling notifications and calls, capturing great videos, better optimizing RAM, creating better controls, and activating the screen VCR.
High-end features don’t stop there. Zenfone 8 is equipped with dual speakers, sound and sound are very good, headphone jack (!), supports Wi-Fi 6 standard, and the waterproof rating is IP68.There is also 5G support, although you are limited to the smaller 5G types 6 or less; No Millimeter wave To get super fast 5G speed. To be honest, millimeter waves are still rare in the United States, so you won’t miss too much.
