Asus is another one of the pocket-friendly brands that has been making a significant dent in the smart devices market.

Known a lot more for its computers, the Taiwanese company has progressed with alacrity into the smartphone market. With their latest entry, Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe (ZS570KL), they seem to be intent on cementing it.

The Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe (ZS570KL) is part of a three phone sub-series, the ZenFone 3, and was unveiled last month by Asus at its pre-Computex 2016 ‘Zenvolution’. The other two phones in the series are a regular ZenFone 3 and a ZenFone 3 Ultra.

First: Uniqueness quotient – the ZenFone 3 Deluxe claims to be the world’s first phone with an invisible antenna design. And the pure-back does look good. In fact it looks so normal, that one might actually miss the achievement altogether!

The ZenFone 3 Deluxe has a 5.7 inch super AMOLED display and runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820. The phablet runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 and is powered by a whopping 6 GB of RAM (which it would need 2 GB or so of, for just running the OS) and 64 GB of inbuilt storage which can be expanded up to 256 GB with a microSD card.

The phone has a full metal design, fingerprint sensor on the back, and hybrid dual-SIM slots.

As for the eyes, the camera on the rear is a 23 megapixel Sony sensor with 4K video support, which puts the phone directly alongside the recently released Moto Z Force.

The Moto Z Force comes with a 21 megapixel rear camera; so with 23 megapixel, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe betters the stalwart in the league, and leaves all the majority behind (as most of them are at either 13 megapixel or 16 megapixel. The fact that the camera offers 4K support is also a good talking point.

That said, the high resolution of the camera does leave one questioning if one really needs a 23 megapixel camera on one’s phone; is that not a bit too much? But when has that stopped anyone!

As for the front camera, it is a 8 megapixel unit, which is also better than most in the league, (industry average currently stands at 5 megapixels). The phone also has Optical and Electronic Image Stabilisation.

So, all in all, while the display of the phone is good, it’s not industry-standard. People would be right in having expected a better setup on the display front. That said, the cameras are high powered and one can expect good outcomes. The OS is standard as per the devices this year, and so is the battery. The microSD card is again a standard practice for most phone companies, and the storage options seem fine and standard as well.

Of the two other Asus phones in the series, this one (the Deluxe) has the most RAM and a middle-sized display. It does not seem aimed at the market as a phablet, like it’s counterpart ZenFone 3 Ultra seems to be with a 6.8-inch display. The display is pretty much the same between the three models, and it shares the processor and the camera with the Ultra version, while the battery with the regular version. The front cameras are all the same, and so is the body, the fingerprint scanner and most of the design.

Overall the phone is thus a nice one, and could function very well as an accessory to show off without having to spend a lot of money. The phone should be out in the market later this June.
