Asus ZenFone 8 Review

Score: 83 / 100

Asus ZenFone 8 is a top-level Android cellphone launched a couple of years ago, in 2021, which features a huge 5.9 inches display, an extremely fast 2840 MHz Octa-Core CPU, and two cameras, a 64 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 12 mega-pixels front facing camera. We will get a better understanding of this phone's specifications when we get into deeper details.

Although this phone is only 5.83" long, it manages to pack a 5.9" display. This phone has a gorgeous design, with a thickness of just 0.35 inches. This cellphone is a bit heavy for a phone this size, weighting 5.96 ounces. The Asus ZenFone 8 is offerred in two different colors, horizon silver and obsidian black. This cellphone design uses Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 3) and Aluminum .

Asus sells the Asus ZenFone 8 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SM8350 system chip, packing a high-tech 2840 MHz Octa-Core processing unit and a huge 6 GB of RAM memory. A good point of this phone is its 128 GB inmense internal storage memory and whereas it doesn't include an external memory card slot, it is still enough to store hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games available nowadays without even thinking about filling it.

Asus equipped the Asus ZenFone 8 with an awesome 5.9-inches screen, and a resolution of 1080 x 2400 , making everything look absolutely perfect.

This cellphone provides WiFi capability (which it can provide to other devices as a mobile hotspot), 5G , the fastest data connection, 4G (LTE-A) super quick internet connection and also HSPA+ data connection (which is a lower speed 4G type) and the fastest 3G data connection, supported by HSDPA technologies. This cellphone supports dual sim so it's able to work with two different phone numbers or carriers at the same time.

This device is equipped with two cameras, a 64 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 12 megapixels front camera. Its back facing camera lens has a F1.8 aperture so it can shoot beautiful photographs even in low light conditions. It can also capture videos in 7680x4320 at 24 frames per second, and slow-motion videos up to 1280x720 (HD) up to 480 frames per second (16 times slower than normal videos). This camera also counts with time lapse video.

This cellphone also features many interesting characteristics like Fingerprint unlock, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (enables communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories), GPS (Global Positioning System) and Radio, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone uses a 4000 mAh huge Nano SIM non-replaceable battery, enough to provide the Asus ZenFone 8 with an extremely long battery life. An issue to consider is that this cellphone's battery isn't replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to get older, although with such a big battery you will probably discard this phone before that becomes an issue.

If you are looking for a gaming phone, need a cellphone to majorly use social networks and internet browsing, want a phone for work or want this phone to take tons of pictures, you will probably be very satisfied with it.
