Premium design, average camera performance

Asus ZenFone 3 Laser

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

Aims to pimp up the Max range with a premium design

Asus ZenFone 3 Max

from Android Authority
Like the entire ZenFone lineup, the ASUS ZenFone 3 is a decent smartphone. However, even with the premium pitch, there’s no stand out factor running for it. It looks good on paper, but the real-world performance is limited – and would only meet the demands of less discerning users. Yes, there’s the fantastic battery life, and that’s the sole reason one should go for this device. Else, even looking within, there are better ZenFone siblings around... Full review

A fantastic tablet for what that's worth

Asus ZenPad Z10

from Android Police

The Z10 ticks a lot of check boxes, especially considering its price. There are some mild annoyances, most notably the navigation model and the speakers, but I learned to get used to them after some time. Overall, I found a lot to like here. The bummer thing is that, at the time of this writing, this tablet is missing Nougat — the lack of split-screen is very noticeable on a device this size. With Asus behind the helm of the update process and Big Red probably slowing things down even more, it is likely that quite some time will pass before the Z10 sees Android 7.0/7.1 and its utiliza...

From strength to strength

Asus ZenFone 3

from AndroidPIT
Last year, Asus succeeded in surprising me with the ZenFone 2. This year, it’s still the case. The ZenFone 3 is an accomplished smartphone that will please the public. The Taiwanese manufacturer has succeeded in achieving the higher standard that they wanted to reach this year. The phone has many advantages: premium design, good camera performance, a great screen and excellent battery life... Full review

Wants to impress with its high-capacity battery and satisfy all runtime-junkies

Asus ZenFone 3 Max

from Notebookcheck
The Zenfone 3 Max offers a good memory configuration for this price range, can handle two SIM cards, and it is light and slim. The handset will be a good deal for everyone mainly focusing on battery life... 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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
