Unboxing Asus ZenFone 3, Hands On and Full Review

ASUS officially launched the newest premium product innovations at the grand Zenvolution event last August as ZenFone 3 is its one of the most anticipated smartphone and a proud successor of last year big hit ZenFone 2.

Asus Zenfone 3 series is now official in the Philippines with all models launched. ASUS ZenFone 3 is the lead model, and namesake of the new ZenFone 3 series. It is a feature-packed smartphone that brings premium design and empowering performance to everyone. 

ZenFone 3 is genuinely premium looking device from the new series. The new Asus ZenFone 3 Z017D is different from their previous generation. 

The Zenfone 3 comes in two models, the ZenFone 3 (ZE520KL) 5.2-inch and the ZenFone 3 (ZE552KL) 5.5-inch version. The difference between the two is the screen size, weight, battery capacity, and price.

Here’s my unboxing and first impressions of the 5.2-inch variant of the ASUS ZenFone 3.

The ZenFone 3 5.2″ Unit

USB Cable Type C

AC Adapter

ZenEar HeadPhones and spare ZenEar Buds

Here's ZenFone 3 5.2″ Unit Sapphire Black,  has the deep bluish-black of the darkest sapphires. I love the color.  Elegantly looking what embodies the phone. Thin, super light and slim. 

This device comes with Full aluminum uni-body design.

A fresh device in every aspect, from the new set of cameras, beautiful display, up to the major design and build overhaul. The ZenFone 3’s industrial design is a radical change from that of the previous generation ZenFone 2.

Its display is a 1920 x 1080 Super IPS+ and has Gorilla Glass 3 installed. 

This device with a case as it is made up of glass. There is a Sim-card option on the left.

ZenFone 3, Hands On and Full Review 

Smart Photography ZenFone 3 Camera

The ZenFone 3’s PixelMaster 3.0 cameras is one of the world’s first smartphones to use three focus technologies (TriTech) to achieve fast focus.

The ZenFone 3 is the world’s first smartphone to use the powerful, yet efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 14nm octa-core processor that increases power efficiency by 35% compared to the last generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, resulting in dramatically improved battery life

It features a 16MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, laser auto-focus, OIS, & a dual-tone LED flash. 

This camera is capable of better Image production. You can have more control over your image when using a ZenFone camera. 

Asus is providing so many inbuilt modes to enjoy the camera. There is a Manual mode in camera for better mobile photography. In low-light, you can get some quality shots.

ZenFone camera is awesome. It has an easy-to-set timer and burst feature. The burst mode to capture a fleeting range of expressions, motion and improve the odds of a good group shot.

Video using ZenFone 3 

The ZenFone 3 comes with a high power, 5-Volt, 2-amp charger that allows it to provide an incredible 2 hours of talk time with just a 5-mimute charge.

Hi-Res Audio output

ZenFone 3 is Hi-Res Audio (HRA) certified. HRA offers ultra-clear, detailed audio with superior sound staging and fidelity to the original recording, and overall quality that is 4x CD quality. To achieve HRA certification, audio players like the ZenFone 3 must be powerful enough to read, process and play the high bandwidth data of high resolution audio files rated at 24-bit/96kHz or 24-bit/192kH; and paired with Hi-Res Audio certified output devices.
