Asus Zenfone 8 smartphone

Oh here we are, Apple's iPhone 12 mini didn't create quite the buzz it was hoping for, but plenty of people are looking for a smartphone that's powerful and small. With the Asus Zenfone 8 ($629.99), flagship enthusiasts with a taste for Android can fill the small-phone void. It has a 120Hz OLED display, powerful cameras, and incredible sound, along with a lot of processing power stuffed into its small frame. Although the iPhone 12 mini is equipped with millimeter-wave and wireless charging, as well as Verizon support, this device doesn't have either

Pros and Cons

Pros
  • Hand-friendly size
  • Powerful processor
  • Excellent onboard audio
  • Flagship-quality photos
Cons
  • Lacks wireless charging
  • Software updates aren't guaranteed
  • Does not work on Verizon's network

Perfectly Body

With a size of 5.8 by 2.7 by 0.3 inches (HWD) and a weight of 6 ounces, the Zenfone 8 is a bit larger than the iPhone 12 mini (5 by 2.5 by 0.3 inches) and similar in size to the Google Pixel 5 (5 by 2.8 by 0.3 inches). Easy to use with one hand is the most important feature.
In its design language, the Zenfone 8 is sophisticated and understated. The curved glass shell is enclosed by glossy aluminum rails. On the top edge is a 3.5mm headphone jack; on the bottom is a USB-C charging port and SIM card slot. On the right edge of the phone are two buttons: a power button in blue and a volume rocker in black.
Asus sells the phone with a matte black outer shell in the United States. There is monochromatic Zenfone branding stacked vertically across the backplate, and a small camera module is found in the upper left corner of the phone.

ٍStrong display

An AMOLED display with a resolution of 120Hz dominates the phone's front. There are 445 pixels per inch on this screen, which displays 2,400 by 1,080 pixels. Display brightness climbs to 1,100 nits at its peak, and colors appear vivid and true. HDR10+ support is also available.
With its Gorilla Glass Invictus display and an IP68 rating, the Zenfone 8 may seem fragile, but it is actually quite durable. This means you can dunk it into the bath without much damage, even after a few drops or dings.

performance and battery

There are two storage options for the Zenfone 8: 128GB or 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage, with an 8GB LPDDR5 RAM. Both models do not include a microSD card slot for additional storage; our 256GB test model had about 238GB available out of the box.
Zenfone 8 has little trouble coping with daily tasks. Hundreds of apps were tested on the phone, and none of them exhibited any lag. There is no lag in the transition between screens and the phone initiates within a few seconds.
Asus' Odyssey on Zenfone 8 looked amazing. We also played Genshin Impact, a much more resource-hungry game, and it worked fine as well; it loaded fast and we saw no skipping frames during a few hours of play.
On the Zenfone 8, you will have no problem getting through a moderately demanding day. With Wi-Fi streaming high-definition video at full brightness, the 4,000mAh battery lasted 10 hours, and 41 minutes. Because source footage recorded at 60Hz is never higher than that, we ran our tests with a 60Hz refresh rate, but if you're using a higher refresh rate, expect your battery to drain faster. The battery on our test unit took about 40 minutes to charge from dead to 80% with the 30W fast charger that came in the box.

The camera

In conjunction with the top-of-the-line Sony sensor, Asus is taking a different approach with the Zenfone 8, instead of packing in a bunch of cameras. With a primary lens of 64MP, OIS, PDAF, and quad-pixel binning, the camera offers excellent image quality. A 12M ultrawide lens helps to correct distortion in real-time as well. The 12MP selfie camera includes an autofocus function.
There is no need to worry about the Zenfone 8's cameras under poor lighting conditions. We appreciate the work that Asus does with their cameras, even as they have their weaknesses.
When you compare the Zenfone 8's ultrawide lens to that of the Samsung Galaxy S21, the optical specs seem the same: 12 MP with a 1/2.55-inch format, large 1.4*m pixels, and a narrow f/2.2 aperture. However, there is a difference between manufacturers. Sony's IMX363 is used by the Zenfone 8 whereas Samsung produces its own sensors.

Zenfone 8 Other features

  • In addition to LTE, the Zenfone 8 is compatible with 5G under 6GHz on AT&T and T-Mobile. Verizon customers cannot use it for now, but it may be certified to work on its mid-band 5G and LTE networks in the future. In the coming months, mid-band speeds for all carriers will be helped by the addition of C-band support.
  • A look at T-Mobile's 5G network with the Zenfone 8. It provides crisp and clear conversations, and data speeds averaged 138.2Mbps up and 58.8Mbps down.
  • With a maximum volume of 102dB, the Zenfone 8's speakers are linear in design. The diodes are powered by a Cirrus Logic CS35L45 MonoAmp while their tuning is handled by Dirac. As a result, the result is an immersive, powerful audio experience.
  • On the Zenfone 8, an increasingly rare 3.5mm headphone jack also appears along with Qualcomm's Aqstic DAC. For wireless listening, Bluetooth 5.2 supports LDAC, aptX HD, and aptX Adaptive, which offer excellent, high-quality codecs.
  • For fast wireless connectivity at home, Wi-Fi 6E is included. You can also use NFC to pay with your phone or check-in.

Conclusion

This is a high-value Android flagship that, at $629, is not just a worthy alternative to the iPhone 12, it's actually a pleasant phone to hold. Despite its small size, it offers the same performance as some full-sized competitors and also comes with an OLED display, remarkable cameras, and a durable chassis.
Does it need anything else? Wireless charging, mmWave support, and Verizon support. There are still a few options for you if these omissions keep the Zenfone 8 out of your list. When it comes to smartphones that offer the latest hardware, the Samsung Galaxy S21 is a solid option that's slightly larger.
