ASUS ZenFone 6 Global Version 6.4 Inch FHD+ Full Screen NFC 5000mAh 48MP+13MP Flip Cameras 6GB 128GB Snapdragon 855 4G Smartphone
The Asus ZenFone 6 comes with 6.4 inches screen in diagonal and it’s protected by Gorilla Glass 6
an IPS LCD is still a very nice screen to look at sharpness is really good and there’s no contrast
shifting when looking at it at different angles.
Colors appear very vibrant even though color accuracy is only average regarding
of which mode or color space we tried.
The max brightness that we measured under our standard testing conditions was 455 nits we did get
the advertised 600 nits in Chrome and slightly lower numbers across the UI and our experience
with it outdoors was a bit mixed screen legibility depended on how strong the sun was shining
but it was mostly just fine.

Dual SIM Slots
On the left side of the phone we find the dual SIM slot which also has a dedicated place for
micro SD cards the standout feature on the right hand side is the special smart key as Asus calls
By default it launches the Google assistant but you can reassign it to do other stuff it can
even differentiate between single double and long presses.
While you can’t to start an app of your choice with it
You can change the sound modes take screenshots and toggle the flashlight all with the same key
and it can be assigned other actions as well the back is rounded towards the edges which helps with
the grip when holding the phone.
The small fingerprint reader on the back is really fast and wakes up and unlocks the phone.
As soon as you touch it you can also set up face unlock but since the cameras need to flip around to see.
You it takes a little extra time even though it’s not a slim phone the zenfone 6 doesn’t feel too thick
either snap on the case which Asus provides in the box.
Asus ZenFone 6-Noticeably Slim
However the phone feels noticeably chunkier it’s also a heavy phone
weighing in at a hundred and ninety grams
but it’s a bit difficult to complain about the weight.
There’s a five thousand milliamp hour battery inside the zenfone 6 puts
all that battery capacity to good use
and it scored an endurance rating of one hundred and ten hours
in our proprietary endurance tests.
Best of all we got sixteen hours of web browsing out of it and no other high-end phone can come
even close to this result for charging.
You can rely on quick charge for the bundled 18 watt charger recharged thirty five percent
of the depleted battery in 30 minutes a full charge takes about two and a half hours.
The main speaker is next to the USB C port at the bottom but the zenfone 6 has a second speaker
at the top for a nice stereo setup.
The speakers are not particularly good in reproducing bass but they are quite loud
we gave it an excellent score in our loudness test.
If you enable the nifty smart volume feature the phone will also adjust the ringing volume
on its own based on how loud the environment is we also get a 3.5 millimeter audio jack
and once you plug in any headphones you’ll be able to access the built-in FM radio.
Snapdragon 855 Power
The Asus Zenfone 6 is powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset performance
was great as expected.
You also get a gaming mode which can block notifications to reduce distractions and
you can record or livestream your gameplay.
The phone would also recognize CPU intensive apps which prompts
you to enable a send phone boost mode.
Asus proprietary opti flex system will reduce delays in opening apps when the onboard AI picks up
your app usage patterns.
It works in conjunction with androids built-in adaptive battery feature combining
the benefit of both optimization engines into one.
The flip camera is definitely one of the highlights of the Zenfone 6 it’s motorized and makes use
of a rather complex gear mechanism so the stepper motor can achieve varying amounts of torque
During the modules flipping action this design has freed the engineers
from having to fit a front camera
and on top of that that means great selfies.
You can switch between the back facing and front facing positions with just a tap on the screen
in the camera app.
You can also use the volume keys or the manual slider and the camera app positions the camera in.
Whatever angle you like the phone attempts to retract the camera or at least move it
to a safer position if it detects a free fall.
The camera has integrated into the flip module Sony’s flagship 48 megapixel sensor
with laser and phase detect autofocus along with a 13 megapixel ultra wide-angle camera
with fixed focus.
There is no optical image stabilization but you do get electronic image stabilization
for video recording.
The camera lets you shoot in the full forty-eight megapixel resolution but it’s at its best
when producing 12 megapixel photos.
By default the camera shoots with Auto HDR enabled so all photos you see use that we really like
the resulting photos that have nice colors good contrast very good dynamic range and nice sharpness.
Advanced HDR Mode
The Asus Zenfone 6 also has a more advanced HDR mode hdr+ enhanced processes photos differently.
HDR+ enhanced mode does take a few seconds to work its magic but the images we took almost
always looked better thanks to an increase in micro contrast you get a nice punchy shot
while retaining the excellent dynamic range.
The image stacking technology works really well the phone also provided two times lossless zoom
which is achieved by cropping a frame from the middle of.
The cameras main sensor when there’s plenty of light the zoomed in shots are actually quite useable.
Regular low-light photos from the main cam are decently detailed but it bit soft and kind of noisy.
The camera has an all new ultra night mode it’s able to even out the exposures across night scenes
by brightening the shadows and restoring highlights proficiently it also removes noise completely.
When it comes to portraits the zenfone delivers subject detection is precise the blur is convincing
and skin tones are pleasing the portrait mode works equally well on non-human subjects too.
One of the main benefits of the flip camera is that you get to take your selfies
with the phone’s high quality main camera and you can even use the flash as predicted
these are some of the best selfies around.
This camera can shoot video at up to 4k at 60 frames how’s that
for a selfie cam video quality is great.
There’s plenty of detail and noises kept low we’re liking the colors
and the dynamic range is excellent –
and the video appears to be relatively well stabilized thanks to the electronic stabilization
regardless of which motor using.
All the way up to 4k at 60 frames per second on the other hand the ultra wide camera
can only record up to 4k at 30 frames the footage is sharp and detailed but a bit noisier
than what you’d get out of.
The main camera top shelf chipset tons of battery life a nice looking display and
a really good performing camera with a unique form factor there’s a lot to get excited about in.
The Asus ZenFone 6 it does lack some flagship features like wireless charging an
official IP water assistance rating and an in display fingerprint scanner but it comes
with a unique flip camera the 5000 lamp our battery a screen
with super slick bezels a customizable
smart key and the latest and greatest silicon from Qualcomm it’s
an offer that’s going to be hard to beat.
