The Asus is, perhaps, the best value Snapdragon 855-powered device on sale in the US. The device costs just US$500 but that price tag has no negative connotations on the phone's camera performance, as the Zenfone 6—going by DxOMark's latest review—trades blows with the best camera phones in the world.

Asus launched the Zenfone 6 at the start of the year. As is becoming customary with Asus smartphones, the flagship took its sweet time getting to the US but finally made it over, and is now widely regarded as one of the best value options in the market. While camera performance is usually a major difference across smartphone price tiers, it would appear that the Zenfone 6 holds its own pretty well—if DxOMark's new review is anything to go by.

The Zenfone 6 put up a good showing, earning an overall score of 104, which puts it in the same ballpark as devices like the iPhone XS Max (106), Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (103), and Google Pixel 3 (102). In the still photography segment, the Zenfone 6 recorded a score of 107, while it made do with a score of 99 in the video category.

Going by the review samples, the Zenfone 6's shots suffer from a lack of fine detail in some shooting conditions. Colors are pleasant, however. On the flip side, exposure appears to not be as consistent as top-performing devices like the Galaxy Note 10+.

In any case, the Zenfone 6's cameras are impressive—and competitive. The device's US$500 price tag may give off the impression of having poor cameras but that's far from the case here, and the fact that the rear cameras also double up as the selfie shooters makes it an even more interesting package.
