80% ASUS ZenFone 8 review: A small flagship phone filling big boots
Source: Hardware Zone English
As a whole, the ZenFone 8 is a great phone facing greater competition. It’s also both a good and unique smartphone because of its compact size, worthy features, and palatable price, even if it’s not particularly flashy in any aspect. We welcome having more options in Singapore’s flagship Android space and finally, we can recommend a capable, high-end compact Android phone that's not from Samsung. Where the ZenFone 8 gets the nod is its overall performance, much better battery life and being a tad more affordable. So it's a matter of which set of experiences do you want more out of your device. The ASUS ZenFone 8 is available for purchase at an official recommended price of S$999 (8GB RAM + 256GB storage), with a S$1,099 alternative (16GB RAM + 256GB storage). If you’re convinced that it’s a flagship phone worthy of your money, you can purchase one from ASUS' online store.

The Asus Zenfone 8 is a solid flagship phone at a sub-flagship price, though inevitably there are compromises: there’s no telephoto lens or wireless charging, and it misses out on its predecessor’s novel flip camera that let the rear lenses rotate forward to take selfie shots. You can still get that camera in the limited-release Asus Zenfone 8 Flip, but the regular Zenfone 8 delivers top-tier specs at the most affordable price since the OnePlus 6T.

80% Asus Zenfone 8 Review: An Android Iphone Mini
Source: The Verge English
The ZenFone 8 fills a void in the Android market for a full-specced, small-sized device. The Google Pixel 4A is around the same size, but it’s decidedly a budget device with a step-down processor, plastic chassis, and fewer niceties like an IP rating or a fast-refresh screen. Aside from battery life, which is manageable, you give up very little in the way of flagship features to get the ZenFone 8’s small form factor. All that said, the ZenFone 8 will be the right fit for a specific type of person, and I can heartily recommend it to my fellow small phone fans. You’ll get flagship-level build quality and performance quite literally in the palm of your hand.

ASUS ZenFone 8 review - The cutest Android flagship phone
Source: Tech Nave English
All in all, the ASUS ZenFone 8 checks most of the requirements needed for a compact flagship device. It's lightweight, powerful, has good cameras, and the battery performance is respectable. However, you shouldn't get it just because it's cheaper than dedicated gaming phones. With a starting price of RM2699, there's not much to nitpick because there aren't many Android phones that come with this size and have high-end specs. The closest option would be the Xiaomi Mi 11 at RM2999, which has the same price as the ASUS ZenFone 8 Flip. If you prefer the iOS experience, then there's the iPhone 12 mini starting from RM3399.

ASUS Zenfone 8 review – the compact flagship you are looking for
Source: Laptop Media English
With that said, we have covered ASUS Zenfone 8’s main issue – thermal management. Using the High-Performance mode with 120Hz enabled results in a rather uncomfortable experience, as the entire device slowly builds up heat. On the other hand, even at 58-59°C on the processor, and playing games at a maximum brightness outdoors, the device didn’t seem to want to shut down, which is good… probably.

We welcome having more options in Singapore’s flagship Android space and finally, we can recommend a capable, high-end compact Android phone that's not from Samsung. The trickier question then is should you choose the ASUS ZenFone 8 or the Samsung Galaxy S21 when hunting for a compact flagship phone? As iterated earlier, the Galaxy S21 has the upper hand in non-stock Android UI experience all through its operating system, a better camera system with its dedicated telephoto lens and a more capable, advanced and yet user-friendly camera interface, wireless charging and a more polished phone design as a whole. Where the ZenFone 8 gets the nod is its overall performance, much better battery life and being a tad more affordable.

ASUS ZenFone 8 Review Philippines: Best Small Phone
Source: Unbox English
There’s definitely a market for smaller, more compact flagships in the marketplace since not everyone is comfortable handling big phones. What I really like about the ZenFone 8 is that it doesn’t really compromise on performance to deliver that small phone experience. It’s also rather affordable too considering the price – making it a great device for anyone looking for a compact flagship that won’t break the bank.

ASUS Zenfone 8 Review
Source: Yugatech English
The ASUS Zenfone 8 8GB + 128GB is priced at PHP 34,995, while the 16GB + 256GB model is at PHP 39,995. Those are lovely price tags for a flagship smartphone, especially the base model. This also puts the Zenfone 8 as one of the most affordable 16GB RAM-equipped smartphones in the Philippine market. It’s not a simple decision to make, though, considering that in that price range, you’ll also start considering the likes of the OnePlus 9 5G, Xiaomi Mi 11, ROG Phone 5 Classic, and even the Zenfone 8 Flip. But if you really want a smartphone with a compact build and have the most RAM for the budget, get the Zenfone 8. But if you want more cameras, a larger screen, and smoother gaming performance, you might want to explore other options.

71% ZenFone 8 review: Asus' small but mighty phone hits the mark
Source: CNet English
Asus is betting a small phone will make a big impact. It bills its new midrange ZenFone 8 as the "ultimate compact Android phone." The ZenFone 8 has a crisp 5.9-inch AMOLED display, respectable battery life, dependable cameras, stereo speakers, and powerful internals that by some measures rivals the $1,200 Galaxy S21 Ultra's performance. All this is crammed into a lightweight and slender chassis, making it one of the most compact 5G phones around.

ASUS Zenfone 8 Review: The Tiny But Mighty Android
Source: Hot Hardware English
With the Zenfone 8, ASUS is bringing a compact flagship back to Android. Like Apple’s iPhone 12 mini, the Zenfone 8 proves that small handsets don’t have to compromise on performance or specs. It’s a niche category for sure, but one with a vocal following. Kudos to ASUS for taking the plunge and making a small phone with premium materials, a gorgeous display, competitive shooters, great audio, outstanding performance, and clean software. If you’ve been waiting for a tiny but mighty Android flagship, the Zenfone 8 is the one. The only truly missing feature here is wireless charging. While that’s important to us, many of you won’t care. The Zenfone 8’s middling battery life is an issue, though -- one that it shares with the iPhone 12 mini -- but thankfully, it’s manageable. Ultimately, with no direct competition and a rumored $599 US price tag, this small flagship is a big winner.

However, if what you’re doing doesn’t require those kinds of specs, you can opt for the cheapest variant which comes with an RTX 3060 that powers a 144Hz FHD display instead at RM8299. Alternatively, you might want to have a look at Acer Nitro 5 AMD Ryzen 5000 series that's equipped with an RTX3080, 16GB RAM, and a 15.6-inch 165Hz QHD IPS display at the price of only RM8999.

Review – ASUS Zenfone 8: Compact in size, dense in performance
Source: NLT English
I can’t find any major fault about the Zenfone 8 and it’s just flawless in my books. But, I’m worried about the long-term. I’m uncertain how long ASUS is going to support the Zenfone 8 in terms of software – and also how quickly they can deliver updates. But that’s the only thing I can nitpick about. Other than that, the Zenfone 8 is just perfect – and I highly recommend you get this phone if you love a small Android flagship smartphone.

A Phone Camera To Flip For: ASUS Zenfone 8 / 8 Flip Review
Source: MrMobile English
If you’re looking for something a little different when it comes to your laptops and smartphones, ASUS has gotta be one of your go-tos. Using the company’s dual-screen laptops over the past couple years has changed what I expect from a mobile computer … and the latest ROG Phone is so well-equipped, it tempted even a non-gamer like myself. Compared to those envelope-pushers, ASUS’s two new Zenfones are far tamer offerings. That’s because they’re trying to appeal to a more mainstream audience, while still offering features other manufacturers have mostly written off. The question is whether either one goes far enough.

The Zenfone 8 looks promising, but pricing will play the biggest role in determining our recommendation. At $599, it's a pretty good deal; at $799, not so much. Carrier support is also something to take into consideration, and we want to see if Asus makes a commitment to multi-year OS updates. We'll be tracking the release of the Zenfone 8 here, so check back soon for more details and a full review when the phone becomes available. In the meantime, our pick for the best small phone remains the iPhone 12 mini.

If it wasn’t for the disappointing battery life, I’d have no issues recommending the Asus Zenfone 8 to anyone after a compact smartphone. Besides that, it’s a beefy device with strong media chops and a dependable everyday camera, packed into a diminutive form factor that won’t give you an unsightly bulge.

The Asus Zenfone 8 is a great phone, though its availability might leave some confused. But the hardware is excellent, the software is great, and the cameras perform way better than expected (especially after the extreme disappointment I had with the ROG Phone 5’s cameras). You’re getting a ton of phone with the Zenfone 8 and it’s definitely the best small Android phone, handily beating the Pixel 5 in every way except camera performance.

ASUS's first shot at a compact Android flagship is one of the best small, high-end phones you can buy.

The Asus Zenfone 8 is a rare occurrence. It's a unique phone with a niche of its own, but this wasn't enough for Asus. They've built an enthusiast's smartphone with brilliant execution and a laundry list of features you rarely see all in one place, not even in larger devices. Much like with its ROG Phone lineup of gaming phones, the Zenfone 8 is a non-compromise device built from the ground up to excel in all important aspects of smartphone operation.

While I’m sure Asus would be happy to own this market by itself, I hope this portends more small(ish) Android flagships.

Finally, there’s the continued issue of availability and limited releases depending on country and markets. I had asked ASUS about their recent track-record of having extremely slow roll-outs, with users sometimes waiting months to be able to purchase the phones in their specific region or country. Similarly, the Zenfone 8 series don’t have any concrete sell date or more specific pricing beyond the European start prices showcased in the above slide. ASUS had replied that they’re aiming to do better this year, but again shying away from disclosing any more concrete per-country availability information.

​Making a smartphone purchasing decision is tough, but for small phone lovers, there aren’t many choices. The ZenFone 8 joins the incredibly small list of compact flagship phones, and it makes a splash by jumping straight up to the top of the list. ASUS doesn’t ask you to compromise on the performance, battery life, display, speakers, or software, and even if the cameras leave a bit to be desired, the competitive price makes up for it.

And finally, we come to the iPhone 12 Mini, of course. Is it the Zenfone 8’s only real competitor? I don’t think so. It’s smaller and probably easier to operate (although those hard edges really hurt your hand) but it’s also more expensive and the battery life is underwhelming, to say the least. The iPhone 12 Mini is also an iOS device (duh, obviously) and people don’t change sides all that often.

Source: Android Authority English
There’s always a sacrifice to be made with smaller phones. Asus tried really hard to make the Zenfone 8 a top-performing flagship in a small, easy-to-use piece of hardware. It very nearly got everything right, yet just a few things hold the Zenfone 8 back. The most glaring issues to me are battery life and the camera. While the battery life is generally good, flipping on features such as the always-on display takes a noticeable hit on battery life. Furthermore, while the main camera gets the job done, the ultra-wide camera falls behind the competition. The Zenfone 8 also doesn’t support the optical zoom that many of its competitors do. There’s still plenty to like.
