Phones that cost up to a thousand dollars are nice to have as they possess exciting features as compared to more affordable phones, but because of the price, there are only few of them that are actually purchased whereas phones that cost way lower than that are experiencing speedy growth in sales. The new Asus ZenFone 6 happens to be the most recent device that has been added to the list of phones that cost half a thousand dollars.
What Asus is looking forward to achieve with the ZenFone 6 is to produce a device that delivers at a fast rate, is affordable, has a lovely screen, a long-lasting battery capacity, and also a quality camera. The specs of this device as provided on paper shows that it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, a main camera of 48 megapixels, a 6.4-inch display that has no notches, and a 5000mAh battery capacity.
Contained in the box of the Asus ZenFone 6 includes:
- Asus ZenFone 6
- Wall charger (18W)
- USB-C cable
- SIM eject tool
- Wired earphones with 3.5mm jack
- Silicone tips of different sizes for the earphones
- A User Guide
As stated earlier, there are no notches on the ZenFone 6 and it does not have a punch-hole camera. The only thing you will find it has is a screen with round corners and a little chin below it. The appearance of this device makes it enjoyable to watch videos or play games and not have anything interrupt.
You may wonder where the front camera is, well Asus made it so that the main camera will also handle selfies. The main camera is placed upon a motor-powered module which rotates at 180 degrees once you tap the required button. This, one must admit is a whole new direction with phone cameras and the camera also appears to support third-party apps and video calls. According to the company, the motor-powered camera module can handle at the very least 100,000 open-close cycles (which is 28 flips per day for 5 years), our sources however, do not believe that this is feasible, be that as it may, if the company has tested this in their lab, there’s absolutely no reason to doubt them but to take them for their word until otherwise is proven.
As an added bonus, the camera module has sensors that lets it know that it is not inside a pocket and it automatically closes in a case where the owner drops the device by accident. The phone has a plastic case but it is not water resistant. The device has its fingerprint reader at the back.
