A lot of phone for the money

Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom

from TechRadar
The Zenfone 3 Zoom brings high-end camera features to the mid-tier with somewhat mixed results, pairing it with an incredibly competent design and packed feature set. This is one of the best values available in 2017... Full review

A promising phone that falls victim to bad software and cut corners

Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom

from Android Police
The ZenFone 3 Zoom is probably not a phone I would use on a regular basis, but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing. It has several strong points, which might be exactly what you're looking for. It has the best battery life of any Android phone I've used. That's great, but the slow charging really limits how much I can praise the battery life. Three hours to recharge a phone, even with a 5,000mAh battery, is not acceptable in 2017... Full review

Stands out from the crowd of unlocked phones

Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom

from PC Magazine
The $329 ZenFone 3 Zoom sits between the $299 Moto G5 Plus and $399 ZTE Axon 7 in terms of price. With its gargantuan battery, dual-camera setup with telephoto zoom, and host of unique features, it manages to stand out, which is more than you can say about many phones in the price range. But it's 2017 and Android O is around the corner, so we can't overlook the fact that the Zoom comes running two-year-old software... Full review

Long zoom, longest battery life ever

Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom

from Tom's Guide
The Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom is a really interesting phone. Its performance is similar to that of less-expensive budget phones, its display is on a par with those of handsets costing hundreds more, and it has dual rear cameras with OIS and a 2.3x optical zoom. But the ZenFone 3 Zoom's best feature isn't even the camera; it's the phone's epic battery life. I just wish this phone's software and interface were more up-to-date, both in terms of design and version number... Full review

Looks far more premium than its price point

Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom

from Mobile Syrup
The Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom offers an excellent upgrade to the original Asus Zenfone 3, already lauded as an exceptional mid-range Android device. It has an exceptional dual-camera setup that outperforms some high-end phones and certainly wins the crown of best mid-range camera. Its also backed by an impressive 5,000mAh battery that should provide most users with a comfortable two days of use... Full review

Premium design, average camera performance

Asus ZenFone 3 Laser

from Android Authority
The Zenfone 3 Laser offers a good value with its premium design, excellent battery life, and dual-SIM card support. However, it doesn't really stand out against competing options, some of which offer a better value... Full review

A sophisticated and well thought-out design

Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe

from PhoneArena
Asus has crafted a very good smartphone with the ZenFone 3 Deluxe. Here we have a phone with an all-aluminum construction, decent display, an extremely fast processing package, good cameras, 64GB of expandable storage, and a ton more for just $499 completely unlocked... Full review

Merely okay to good in every aspect

Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe

from Android Police
The ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe isn't a terrible phone, but it's extremely hard to recommend over its competitors. While its specs are decent, its software and camera drag it down. The price is also a problem; it is lower than most flagships' from larger companies, but other phones offer justification for their higher prices in the form of useful features. I would honestly hesitate to recommend this phone even if its MSRP were $100 lower, thanks to the existence of phones like the ZTE Axon 7 and the heavily-mentioned OnePlus 3T... Full review

Excellent bang-for-buck

Asus ZenFone 3 Laser

from PhoneArena
As a whole, Asus did a commendable job at packing in a lot of smartphone into something that costs less than 1/3 of today’s premium flagships, at just $200. The design of the Laser might be a bit commonplace, but the nice materials being used for the phone’s construction do a great job at mimicking the look and feel of a much more expensive product...

When battery life is of utmost importance

Asus ZenFone 3 Max

from LaptopMedia
As we expected, the available 4130mAh battery is Zenfone 3 Max’s key advantage in its battle with the competitive models in this price range. Apart from ensuring high durability, it is also complemented by several battery saving modes which can significantly increase battery life between separate charges. They are part of the feature-rich Zen user interface by ASUS which complements the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS in the best possible way. Additionally, you get an HD display which ensures good enough image detail plus high brightness levels allowing easy use when outdoors... Full review

I purchased my zenfone 4 about 7 months back, and I have been facing performance and battery issues since the past 2-3 months. It can handle the everyday tasks well in its initial phase for a few months, and you might love its great UI and colour scheme, but later on you will face lagging in even simple web browsing , social networking, reading documents or while switching between different apps. Another main concern is the battery. After using for about 4-5 months, you will notice that even a full charge will drain out in 3-4 hours even with simple phone usage like calling or messaging. Even the battery saver mode doesn't come to the rescue. The primary camera is good for its price but the front camera gives very poor picture quality. Low light photography is next to impossible. Otherwise, looks wise the handset is good. Anyone who is looking for a budget phone for temporary usage may consider buying this. Less

I love it but its not that perfect.

Asus ZenFone 5

love the phone, love the design, the processor, the interface but one thing I hate about it is that the screen cracks easily. should a gorilla glass break easily???

Unbelievably fragile

Asus Transformer Book Duet

I have had two of the Asus transformer books. the first one broke after falling off of my bed, three feet up. I used the warranty and got a new one. three months later I dropped it from two feet. the screen shattered. would not recommend.

I've had this for just over a year and I could not be more unhappy with it. At first I thought it was user error, but after much patience, I've decided that its not me, its the computer. It has a mind of its own. The volume control on the side stays on and either goes to 0% or 100% and nothing in between. I will be typing in a document and it will randomly change to a different line, or worse, change to a different app. The battery life is not as advertised. The keyboard is wearing out. I've talked with customer service multiple times and nothing has been fixed. Less

I used the tablet almost one year and before warranty expires and without any physical or water damage the screen began having a vertical line. Sent for warranty and they denied it arguing customer damage despite the tablet was intact, no scratches, never dropped and used always with a hard case. Besides to denying a deserved warranty they were trying to steal trying to charge $185 for repair while the new model can be bought for $230 and the same model for $160. DONT TRUST GOOGLE ASUS WARRANTY and go with a more trusted brand. Less

I have a Galaxy Tab 2.7, an iPad mini and a nexus 7 (all to be given later as presents to friends). I bought the memopad HD 7 because the reviews fascinated me and I wanted to see how good it is. Well, its now my go to tablet for day to day so I obviously really like it. I don't understand what some reviewers elsewhere have said about creaky body, mine doesn't creak at all. Its beryllium solid. Same with complaints about the protruding back lip, I find the memopad far more comfortable than the nexus 7 and lighter. I find no difference in speed at all with the above 7" tablets. Mine works like a breeze. Battery life is important to me and only the iPad mini beats it. I'm not into bright colours so the dark blue back is fine for me and I think its a very fine design. Perhaps people have thought it looks tacky if they have one of the bright colours which I would agree look tacky but the dark blue is quite acceptable. So, no complaints at all. Memory expansion is a real bonus and it reads three memory card very quickly and it sits very stably in the little hole. The speakers are a vast improvement on the nexus 7 speakers which are frankly rubbish. Overall I would say this is a great little tablet regardless of price but given that it can be picked up for as little as £129 in Currys its an absolute steal and a gem. I wholeheartedly recommend it. Less

I hated the phone

because I couldn't call out or answer a call without it ending the call on its own. Took it back to the store since I couldn't call or receive calls on it and they replaced it with a new one. I was thrilled that I could call out and receive, except I was shocked to find that now, I had no maps. Whenever I tried to use any of the Garmin features, I had no maps and I couldn't even add my own home address because it kept telling me that there was no data for that location (I live in a city and not some rural unknown place). I was so frustrated spending hours with tech support and with Garmin support to end up with nothing. Should I also mention that it created a second contact for every contact I had that had a second number (example one with the home number and one with the mobile number). I took it back and after much arguing with the supplier, I finally got an authorization to get it exchanged for a new model of phone. STAY AWAY! Less
