Android version and market relevance

Dual-smartphone Asus Zenfone 8 introduced a company Asus in May 2021. It has Android version 11, which, unfortunately, it will not be possible to update, because the manufacturer did not take care of it. This new smartphone has also received support for high-speed 5G networks so that you can watch very high-quality 4K or even 8K videos on YouTube, play online games and not feel any inconvenience associated with the slow speed of mobile Internet.

Well, what can I say, Asus Zenfone 8 is a smartphone of 2021 with fairly normal characteristics, which is located in our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”.

Screen, body and battery

Briefly describe the screen and the body of the smartphone. Asus Zenfone 8 received Super AMOLED-screen measuring 5.9 inches. This is a good average among smartphones, with this size it is still convenient to hold in your hands and much more information is placed on the screen. It′s more pleasant to watch movies or TV shows, play games and chat in chats. In addition to the screen size, it is also worth talking about the image refresh rate. 120 Hz is 120 updates per second of each pixel on the screen. This frequency is not very noticeable to the eye, but it gives a feeling of smooth operation of the interface. Especially in games where the picture changes quickly and with smooth animations, players get more pleasure from immersion in the game. Smartphones with a refresh rate of 120 Hz can now be bought only in premium segments, where the price starts at $ 800 and above. If it’s expensive for you, you can look at smartphones with a frequency of 90 Hz or even 60 Hz.

And now let’s move on to describing the dimensions of the case. The ratio of screen size to body size of Asus Zenfone 8 is very high, so the screen takes up almost all the space from edge to edge (but a little bit lacking to the parameters of a frameless smartphone). In addition, there is a small cutout above the screen, which houses a selfie camera. Such a cutout significantly increases the usable area of the smartphone screen and even distinguishes the body design from other models. The thickness of the smartphone Asus Zenfone 8 is 8.9 mm. This model, you can call “fat”, because today many smartphones with thinner cases are already being manufactured. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 4 000 mAh, and this is already the application for success and leadership in tests for the duration of the device from one battery charge.

Another of the features of the hull, we note that Asus Zenfone 8 has dust, water protection. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

Take photos and videos on smartphone Asus Zenfone 8 possible on the main camera (64 MP Wide + 12 MP UltraWide) and on the front camera (12 MP with a regular lens). We tried to group all smartphones in the catalog into segments and this model with such a main camera got in the top segment. At the moment this is one of the best cameras on the market, so we advise you to buy this smartphone and enjoy the quality of the photos and videos taken on his camera.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Asus Zenfone 8 received 8-core processor Snapdragon 888 5G (5 nm). The amount of RAM in it is 6 GB or 16 GB, depending on which option you choose.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 128/256 GB. This is again different versions of your choice. The more memory, the more expensive the version of the smartphone. If you want to buy this smartphone, then we recommend taking the maximum option for the amount of internal memory, because this model does not support memory cards.

Price for Asus Zenfone 8: buy or not to buy?

The choice to make is not difficult — to buy or not to buy — we will help you to solve it right now. New smartphone Asus Zenfone 8 we took and carried out segmentation for the quality of the camera, screen size, battery capacity and processor performance. So, if you want to buy a smartphone with a large screen, then this model perfectly suits you. If you want to receive super quality photos, you can safely take this smartphone and do not overpay for top models. And, finally, on the performance of the processor, this model is very powerful with a capacious battery here.

Having dealt with the average characteristics, it remains to understand whether it is worth all the declared price of $725 (without taxes and fees). Here everyone makes a choice for himself and evaluates all the pros and cons.

If something you did not fit this smartphone for purchase, then look in our catalog for a selection DROID smartphones. These are models that are now on sale, and that work under the new version of Android OS.

Asus announced new compact flagships Zenfone 8 and Zenfone 8 Flip

In 2021, the first compact flagship Asus Zenfone 8 and its version with the improved camera Zenfone 8 Flip appeared on the market. The general characteristics of the models are the flagship Snapdragon 888 processor and a large amount of RAM (from 6 to 16 GB), a software shell with Android 11. But the difference between these two models is the body size and the characteristics of the cameras. Prices start at $725 and $970 respectively, with sales starting this month.

Let’s describe the differences between these two new products. The Asus Zenfone 8 has IP68 water and dust resistance, but the Zenfone 8 Flip does not. But it has the best camera — three modules are installed in the rotating block (64 Wide Mp + 8 Mp Telephoto + 12 Mp UltraWide). The base model has only two main camera modules (64MP Wide + 12MP UltraWide) and a 12MP front camera.

And the main difference between these two models is the screen diagonal. The base model has a compact 5.9-inch (Super AMOLED at 120Hz), while the Flip version has a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED screen at 90Hz. And besides, this version, unlike the base one, has support for microSDXC memory cards and a more capacious battery (5000 versus 4000 mAh).

We picked up these models at a similar price.
