Asus Zenfone 3 price in Malaysia

ASUS Zenfone 3 is one of the models in the ZenFone Range, a list of mid-range smartphone models that ASUS first introduced back in 2014. With ASUS Zenfone 3, ASUS plans to move away from the budget segment and the company is looking for ways to increase its market share in the premium segment. Examples of some models that ASUS wants to directly compete in the premium segment with include smartphone models like the One Plus 3 and Huawei Honor 8.

ASUS Zenfone 3 Design

ASUS uses a new and refreshing design to differentiate the ASUS Zenfone 3 from other smartphone models that are still using the common and boring all-metal design. The ASUS Zenfone 3 has a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Class that is curved on the front and back with a metal frame surrounding those curves. The design of the ASUS Zenfone is stylish, sturdy, and attractive. It is only 7.69mm thick and weighs 145 grams. However, due to its slim profile and all-glass design, I would suggest you to hold the smartphone properly because it is a little bit slippery.

ASUS Zenfone 3 Display

ASUS Zenfone 3 sports a 5.2-inches Full HD IPS display. The display is really sharp, has crisp visuals, and brilliant clarity. It is also vibrant and has rich colours hence it is enjoyable to watch high resolution videos or play mobile games on the display. Due to its high brightness level of 600 nits, you can also use the ASUS Zenfone 3 under the sun. The smartphone offers great viewing angles too thanks to the IPS technology on the screen and you can also use the smartphone while wearing a pair of gloves.

ASUS Zenfone 3 Performance

The hardware specifications of the ASUS Zenfone 3 are Snapdragon 625 mid-level processor and 3GB of RAM. When you compare the ASUS Zenfone 3 to several other smartphones in this premium segment, the hardware specifications of the ASUS Zenfone 3 are quite modest. Other smartphones in this segment are using flagship processors from Qualcomm and most of them offer at least up to 6GB of RAM while there are smartphones with the similar hardware specifications in the mid-range market that are sold for half the price of the ASUS Zenfone 3. Nevertheless, the ASUS Zenfone 3 performs brilliantly with no apparent lags when you do multitasking and navigating across the user interface. It can also support graphic intensive mobile games. Overall, the performance of the ASUS Zenfone 3 is smooth and sufficient for an average mobile phone user.

ASUS Zenfone 3 Hardware

As mentioned above, the ASUS Zenfone 3 only uses a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. It is actually using a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor with the clock speed of 2GHz along with an integrated Adreno 506 as the graphics processing unit. The smartphone also comes with a 32GB of internal storage and supports up to 2TB by using the dedicated microSD slot. In addition, ASUS will also offer 100GB of free cloud storage space for 2 years because of their current collaboration with Google. The ASUS Zenfone 3 has a hybrid SIM slot that you use a Nano SIM, Micro SIM or a microSD card in. While it supports both SIM cards, only one card can connect to the 3G or 4G networks at one given time.


ASUS Zenfone 3 Camera

ASUS claims that one of the great highlights of the ASUS Zenfone 3 is its camera. The camera is powered by ASUS proprietary technology known as the PixelMaster 3.0. It has a 16-megapixel camera on the back with a f/2.0 aperture and 6P Largan Lens. These lens helps the camera to focus on the subject really quickly. ASUS stated that the TriTech auto-focus technology on the ASUS Zenfone 3 uses laser, phase detection, and continuous autofocus simultaneously to allow the camera to focus in just 0.03 seconds regardless of any conditions. It also has an Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) that will come handy when you shoot videos or still shots under less ideal lighting conditions. The 8-megapixel camera on the front also offers sharp and detailed selfies even under low lighting conditions and indoors.
