ASUS ZenFone 6 Review: the ULTIMATE selfie phone?

Rating: 7.5.

Every phone manufacture is chasing the fully notch-less display but there’s always something that’s been in the way – the camera. ASUS may have just found a way around this issue. The ZenFone 6 by ASUS features a beautiful 6.4” notch-less display whilst maintaining a fully functional front facing camera with a trick. The dual cameras found on this phone are mechanically able to flip around to face you but this does come with a few disadvantages. Is this feature a game changer or a gimmick?

  • Great specs.
  • Affordable price for the specs.
  • Excellent main camera.
  • Wide angle camera.
  • Flip out camera is great for panoramic photos.
  • Headphone jack.

Cons:

  • Very slippery to hold.
  • No IP rating.
  • Flip mechanism could damage easily.
  • Noisy camera motor when videoing and manually moving the camera’s tilt.
  • Very easy to close the camera app and launch settings app with your thumb.

KitGuru says: Overall, the ZenFone 6 is a great all-round performer. Very snappy and responsive to touches, opening apps and light gaming but of course this phone is mainly aimed at people that use their phones for photos and videos. Here the main camera performs excellently, adaptive HDR works well and having a wide-angle camera is a bonus. Being able to use both of these as selfie cams is excellent but the draw backs are almost on par with the pros here. The flip mechanism is loud and the possibility of it breaking or wearing out worries us.
