Reviews for the Asus ZenFone 5Z ZS620KL

90% Asus ZenFone 5Z Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Asus ZenFone 5Z is priced starting at Rs. 29,999 for the variant with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage which we reviewed. The higher variants with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage and the other with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage are priced at Rs. 32,999 and Rs.36,999 respectively. Asus has hit the ball right out of the park when it comes to pricing, considering that you get a top-of-the-line Snapdragon 845 processor, good cameras, lots of features, and AI-enhanced software.

86% Asus ZenFone 5Z (ZS620KL) Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Asus Zenfone 5z does almost everything right. From the top-notch hardware to a stunningly bright display (albeit with a notch), but most importantly it's the price of the phone that is the best part about it. The Zenfone 5z with its Rs 29,999 starting price makes the OnePlus 6 look like an expensive flagship in comparison.

Opinion: If the ASUS ZenFone 5Z coming in June is below RM2.2K, will it be the most value-priced flagship killer?
Source: Tech Nave English
At this point, the upcoming OnePlus 6 has quite a lot of catching up to do because if the Mi Mix 2s doesn't come to Malaysia in June, the ZenFone 5Z will take over the mantle of flagship killer instead, especially as rumours from industry experts indicate that ASUS could have learned their lesson from the previously somewhat overpriced ZenFone 4 series. This could mean that they'll be bringing in their 8GB RAM + 256GB storage version or that the price for the ZenFone 5Z could actually dip below RM2K. How much do you think the ASUS ZenFone 5Z will cost in Malaysia? How much would you pay for it? Stay tuned to TechNave.com.

Asus Zenfone 5, 5z, 5 Lite hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
Tempting pricing is what probably raises the potential for success of the new Asus Zenfones. The Zenfone 5 and 5z impress with notched full-screens and well-specked main camera, while the Lite model has not three but four cameras and a trendy screen. The Max (M1) brings long-lasting Oreo experience and dual-camera on the cheap.

In retrospect, the new ZenFone 5 phones are really Asus’ most exciting phones yet. They’re well-designed – albeit not very original – they look and feel premium, and their software is quite possibly Asus’ most polished version of Android yet.

The Zenfone 5Z is, without question, the most impressive smartphone that Asus has ever put out. Yes, it may look like an iPhone X knock-off at first glance, but look under the hood and you'll find one of MWC's most impressive smartphones.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
