Android version and market relevance

Dual-smartphone Asus Zenfone 9 introduced a company Asus in July 2022. It has Android version 12, 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 9 is a smartphone of 2022 with fairly normal characteristics, which is located in our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”.

Screen, body and battery

The case Asus Zenfone 9 has got interesting features: very thin side frames, cutout above the screen for a selfie camera and sensors, protection from dust and water (in the standards allowed by the standard, the smartphone can be influenced by water, submerged, etc.).

The screen Asus Zenfone 9 is made using the Super AMOLED technology, has a diagonal 5.9 inches and refresh rate 120 Hz. If the smoothness of the interface is important for you (especially in mobile games), then you need to choose smartphones with screens that have a refresh rate higher than 120 times per second. Such a large main touch screen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 9.1 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 4 300 mAh. 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

A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 12 MP with a regular lens. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment weak cameras. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

The main camera got several modules (dual camera smartphones): 50 MP Wide + 12 MP UltraWide, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment super cool mobile cameras. Directly without hesitation can buy this smartphone and enjoy your photos and videos shot on it. Why do you need a camera with multiple modules in a smartphone? And what are the advantages of such a camera? This allows you to take very beautiful portraits with bokeh (blurred background) effect. And an additional lens with a different focal length provides a high-quality approximation (zoom) for photography. In addition, software algorithms can improve the quality of the photo after processing frames from each camera module.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone that always works fast, smoothly and does not overheat is a smartphone-dream! You can see how fast our Asus Zenfone 9 works in video reviews, and now let′s talk briefly about the characteristics of the processor and memory. This model received 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 (4 nm). Two options for the amount of RAM: 8 GB or 16 GB.

The built-in memory on which you will store photos, videos, music and all your data, has a volume of 128 GB.But there are versions with more memory on 256 GB.

Price for Asus Zenfone 9: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Asus Zenfone 9 got into our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” and began to be sold in August 2022 at a price of $800. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Asus Zenfone 9 is a very smart smartphone with a large screen and the coolest main camera for today, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery is of high capacity.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
