Asus latest ZenFone 3 trio, the ZenFone 3, ZenFone 3 Ultra, and ZenFone 3 Deluxe has got us all psyched up. The ZenFone 3 trio made waves at Computex 2016, where Asus made an incredible impact on the audience there. So, what’s the difference between these 3 powerful smartphones and which one is right for you now that they are here in Singapore?
Why Buy the ZenFone 3?
At $398, the ZenFone 3 sits nicely between the price of a budget phone and a mid-ranger, making is extremely attractive in terms of cost. For its specifications, the ZenFone 3 is well-worth its price. 4GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 625 is pretty much a specification unmatched by any other phone in the market. For instance the Sony Xperia XA that has 2GB of RAM a 1280x720px screen is $498, a whole $100 more than the ZenFone 3.
For the ZenFone 3’s specifications, you get a better camera that shoots great photos (I’ve seen it in action), is fairly snappy, matching the processing speed of phones ranging from $400-$600. This phone should give you a fairly lag-free experience unless you run extremely heavy applications like graphics intensive games.
If you want beauty and speed on a budget, the ZenFone 3 would be your phone of choice. I can say with almost absolute certainty that it is the most value-for-money phone in the market.
Why Buy the ZenFone 3 Ultra?
If you want an ultra-phablet, obviously. At 6.8”, there is no other phablet in the market bigger than the Ultra. Samsung’s Note 7 that claims to be a phablet comes in at only 5.7” and the biggest phones in the market are about 6.0”. Of course, there are tablets with mobile capabilities, but they have horrible screen-to-body ratio and despite the Ultra’s huge screen size, it’s extremely sleek. What this means is you get a big screen, but compact device.
Of course, it’s camera is superb, matching the Deluxe and it has a processor between the basic model and the Deluxe. This should give you sufficient power to match most mid-rangers, if not outperform them with your superior RAM of 4GB, which is the same as what the Note 7 has.
Why Buy the ZenFone 3 Deluxe?
You don’t even want to settle, at all. You want the best? You got it. The ZenFone 3 Deluxe is probably the most powerful device in the market right now. The processor and RAM blow the Samsung S7 and iPhone 6S out of the water. AnTuTu benchmarks show its superior power, hitting the 150,000 score, that both the S7 and 6S can’t hit. This means that the ZenFone 3 Deluxe is the most powerful phone in the market at the moment.
It’s camera, is amazing and it is one of the best shooter, if not the best. Of course, this can be quite subjective, depending on what kind of a colour contrast you like. Nevertheless, if you want an ultra-powerful smartphone, the fastest and sleekest in the market, then just grab the ZenFone 3, which will only be available in late September though.
