Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe Edition Review


Asus ended the year on a high note when it launched the highly expected Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe edition. The device is Asus’s flagship and because it holds that title it’s equipped with only the latest high-end hardware parts and features the best design the company had to offer. This was to be expected since Asus is going against a tough crowd of tech giants such as Samsung and Apple. The Taiwanese multinational had to really step up its game and design one of the best Android powered devices in order to persuade customers into buying its ZenFone 3 Deluxe and not an iPhone 7 Plus or Galaxy S7 Edge Plus. Today we will go over ZenFone 3 Deluxe’s specifications and see if the smartphone can really hold its own against other flagship devices.


ZeFone 3 Deluxe features a metallic body which gives it a premium look and it also feels very smooth ergonomic wise because it comes with rounded sides and a curved back. The back side of the device is slightly curved and it’s also coated in a matte material which significantly improves the aesthetic look. What really sets the device apart from the rest in terms of design is the fact that Asus managed to find a way to hide the back antenna without altering the signal quality. This gives Asus a major advantage in the smartphone world since even high-end devices such as iPhone 7 Plus have a visible antenna.


The device ships with a rather large 5.7 inch Super AMOLED display that features full HD resolution which has a pixel resolution of 386ppi. While Asus should have opted instead with a Quad-HD display, the Super AMOLED is definitely able to provide users with impressive color representation and picture rendering. In fact, users can even alter the color temperature so that the smartphone’s display fits their liking.


Hardware Performance

Asus equipped the device with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 821 processor which is paired with the whopping amount of 6GB of RAM and 64GB/256GB of internal storage space. The processor is the best Qualcomm has to offer right now and it’s definitely the most advanced hardware piece on the market. We put ZenFone 3 Deluxe through a bunch of benchmarking tests and it came with an average GFX score of 155,041. This proves that ZenFone 3 Deluxe performs exceptionably well hardware wise and readers should know that the device will move smoothly under any circumstance.

The impressive hardware performances are accompanied by a large battery life expectancy that can go up to one and a half days while under normal usage. This is all thanks to the large 3,000 mAh battery it uses. The smartphone comes with a Normal mode that helps preserve battery life and it also comes with Performance mode which favors heavy usage over battery saving. Also, worth mentioning is that the battery comes with Quick Charge 3.0 support and its able to charge up to 65 percent battery in just 30 minutes.


This department isn’t something to be overlooked since the 23MP rear camera is Asus’s pride and joy. The camera features four-axis optical image stabilization sensor (OIS), electronic stabilization, laser autofocus and PDAF. Asus did an amazing job optimizing the 23MP camera and this can clearly be seen in the high quality pictures it’s able to take, especially when snapping landscapes. In fact, it’s actually able to take high quality photos even in low light circumstances because it features a Low-light mode. Users can also record videos at either 4K 30FPS quality or at 1080p 60FPS resolutions.
