Asus ZenFone 8 Flip Review

Score: 10.16/10

Asus ZenFone 8 Flip is a wonderful Android device launched in May, coming with a high speed Octa-Core CPU running at 2.84 GHz, an enormous 6.7" display and a 64 MP back camera. That's all? No, it's just the beginning of a detailed review.

This cellphone ships with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SM8350 chip, packing an extremely powerful 2840 MHz Octa-Core processing unit and a big 8 GB of RAM memory. The Asus ZenFone 8 Flip has a 128 GB big internal storage memory and an SD card slot, enough to store hundreds of apps and even the largest games currently available without thinking about running out of space at all.

Talking about its construction, the Asus ZenFone 8 Flip is mostly created with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 3) and Aluminum . Asus offers this cellphone in two color options, galactic black and glacier silver. Although the Asus ZenFone 8 Flip is only 6.5" long and 3.04 inches wide, it is still able to fit a a 6.7 inches display. This cellphone is slim and good-looking, being just 0.38 inches thick. This time, it seems like Asus didn't care so much about the weight in this 8.11 oz cellphone.

This cellphone has only a 64 mega-pixels back-facing camera. this device's back-facing camera has an aperture of f/1.8 so it can shoot sharp photographs even in poor lighting conditions. It is also able to capture videos in 7680x4320 at 30 frames per second, and HD 1280x720 slow motion videos up to 480 frames per second (16 times slower than reality). The camera also has time lapse video.

Asus designed this phone with a gorgeous 6.7" display, and a 1080 x 2400 resolution, which makes all images and videos look beautiful and brightful.

The Asus ZenFone 8 Flip offers Wi-Fi connectivity (which can be provided to other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), 5G latest connectivity, LTE-A (4G) super fast data connection and also HSPA+ data connection (a lower speed 4G network) and 3G fast connectivity, using HSDPA technologies. This device uses 2 Nano SIM cards so it's able to work with 2 different phone lines or carriers at the same time.

This phone packs a great 5000 mAh non-replaceable battery, enough to provide the Asus ZenFone 8 Flip with a marvelous battery life. An issue to take into account is that the Asus ZenFone 8 Flip's battery isn't removable so you can't change it when it begins to live shorter, while with such a huge battery size you will probably buy a new phone before it happens.

This cellphone also comes with a wide range of great features such as Fingerprint unlock, Face unlock, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your cellphone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (provides communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories) and GPS, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The Asus ZenFone 8 Flip is definitely the right one for you if you you love taking photos, will use it as a social phone, need a phone for playing games or will use it as a work cellphone.
