Reviews for the Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom-ZE553KL
The ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom is not the company’s first “zoom” smartphone. In 2015, they released the original Zenfone Zoom, however, it didn’t get enough traction considering the price and competition. After two years, ASUS revived the Zoom lineup with a fairly strong combination of premium build, dual rear cameras, capable specs, and large battery.

We must admit, we already liked the Zenfone 3 Zoom even before we got our hands on it. It’s a heavy-hitter in terms of mobile photography.

Overall, the Zenfone 3 Zoom is a mid-range phone with some compelling camera specs and a large battery. We really need to spend more time with it before we can say whether it can capture better photos than competing handsets, and it would be good to know how much the thing costs before giving it two thumbs up. Asus has said it is coming in February, but it's staying quiet on price and availability.

The Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom intensely focuses on the two areas of the smartphone we really care about – the camera and battery life. Its camera specs either tie or best the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and iPhone 7 Plus, and we’re anxious to see how it fares when we take real life photos.

In addition, ASUS is serving up a host of manual controls in its camera app, with options for controlling things like exposure values, ISO, shutter speed, and the focal length. This reminds us of the Pro mode on the Huawei Mate 9, and the two are actually quite similar (Huawei has an extra setting for autofocus mode).

As so much of this phone rests on its optical zoom toting camera, I can't really make too many judgements on it without thoroughly testing it. But the camera specs sound strong, so I do have high hopes. That 5,000 mAh battery is another feature, and I'm wondering how long it could possibly last.

That’s pretty much it for this hands-on. No official price has been set for this phone in the Philippines as of yet. From what we can surmise, the pricing for this phone will fall close to the official SRP of the original ZF3, which may result in ASUS officially canning the 5.5-inch ZF3 and replacing it with this model. That’s our take on it anyway. The phone will hit stores worldwide by February.
