Elegant design and impressive 16MP camera

oisFirstly, the model’s design is exceptionally stilish and it features a glass surface on either side. Additionally, the phone’s profile is extremely thin, while its weight is low – we are talking about 7.7 mm and 144 grams. As for the side frame – it is made of metal. You may also wish to know that there are different color options to better suit your style.

The camera is another component that has been paid due attention to. It is 16MP and has an IMX 298 Sony sensor, f/2.0 aperture, as well as an optical image stabilization, which is meant to reduce the number of blurry shots, a dual LED flash and laser autofocus, which can focus in 0.03 seconds. The list goes on with a menu rich in settings and modes plus 4K video recording capabilities. As for the front, there is an 8MP camera with f/2.0 aperture and Full HD video recording.

5.2-inch Full HD display, fingerprint scanner and USB Type-C

We continue with the smartphone’s display which is 5.2 inches and Full HD (1920 х 1080). This ensures high enough image detail. ASUS also emphasizes on the high screen brightness which provides perfect visibility irrespective of the environment. Furthermore, we are presented with a 2.5D glass whose slightly curved edges contribute to the attractive appearance. As far as protection is concerned, we are dealing with Gorilla Glass 3.

On the back, just below the camera, you will find the fingerprint scanner, which can remember up to five fingers, and is also quite quick to unlock your device (only 0.2 seconds). What’s more, this sensor has other capabilities apart from simply being able to unlock your phone. Furthermore, the smartphone boats a USB Type-C port, high quality SonicMaster sound as well as high speed LTE Cat 6 connectivity.

8-core Snapdragon 625 and ZenUI 3.0 with many software features

It is also important to note that the 64-bit Snapdragon 625 mobile processor ensures high performance. It has been manufactured through a 14nm technological process and features eight Cortex-A53 cores, ticking at up to 2.0GHz. All this is complemented by an Adreno 506 graphics card and 3GB of RAM. The internal storage is 32GB and there is also a microSD card slot, which supports cards with up to 256GB of storage.

Zenfone 3 ZE520KL’s operating system is Android 6.0 Marshmallow but what is more interesting here is the available ZenUI 3.0 user interface included by ASUS. It traditionally brings a good number of useful software functions and many pre-installed applications.
