It seems as if the smartphone business is attracting many suiters nowadays because of the new horizons value for money smartphone have introduced. Asus has hopped aboard this particular ship and it seems like taking the high road to make a name for itself through the release of the stunning Zenfone 3 ZE552KL. Not a handsome name by any means, the smartphone’s specs will beg to differ.
Build quality and display
The Zenfone 3 ZE552KL looks like a mixture of some Huawei and Samsung devices from its front and back. The front features the 3 capacitive buttons on the bottom bezel which for no apparent reason do not feature backlighting (ouch!) while the back panel is an altogether different piece of the puzzle with a Galaxy S7-ish glass panel with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. That’s not it; the smartphone is extremely sleek with a 7.7mm width while its 155g weight will feel much lighter in the palm.
The smartphone features a 5.5 inches Super IPS+ capacitive touchscreen with 401ppi pixel density. This translates into a handsome 1080p HD resolution that on combination with the Super IPS+ produces staggering results.
If you haven’t already been impressed by the Zenfone 3 ZE552KL, the smartphone’s cameras will surely excite your nerves. The device features a feature-full 16 megapixel primary sensor with 4 axis OIS, phase detection and laser autofocus while a dual-tone LED flash further sheds light on its amazing prowess. The selfie sensor stands at 8 megapixels and we’re completely amazed by the combination of these two. So should you.
Hardware and software
The Zenfone 3 ZE552KL contains plenty of processing power up its sleeves as is signified by its 2.0 GHz Octa-Core Cortex-A53 processor. The smartphone is marketed in two variants with one being a 32GB internal storage plus 3GB RAM one while the other more powerful variant features 64 gigs of internal storage and 4GB of RAM. Both of these contain more than enough power to run the built-in Android Marshmallow while the Fingerprint scanner, 3000 mAh non-removable battery and 3 different color schemes (Black, Gold, White) sign-off this incredible release from Asus.
