Asus Zenfone 6

 

Sporting a 6-inch screen, the Asus Zenfone 6 is the largest model in Asus's new range of Zenfones – a set of handsets out to bring Asus phones to a mainstream audience. This rather marked step up in price from the Zenfone 5 will get you a bigger...

Giant screen great for video and gaming ; Decent performance ; Great battery life

Relatively low-res, slightly soft screen ; Not small… obviously ; No 4G

Asus Zenfone 6 review

 

The Zenfone 6 has excellent performance and a helpful UI, but its mediocre screen, camera and battery life hold the handset back

Asus ZenFone 6 review

 

The ZenFone 6 is available to pre-order from Asus now for £249.99, though we think it'll drop in price as third-party resellers begin to offer it after launch. The phablet is set to be released in the UK on 20 October, so there's not too long to wait.

The ZenFone 6 is not going to appeal to everyone. It really is huge, so it's not the most portable of smartphones, but if you're ok with that you're going to benefit from a brilliant device for watching TV and movies on the commute. If it's playing...

Asus Zenfone 6 Review: In Depth

ASUS ZenFone 6 Mobile Review

 

Over the last decade ASUS have built up a reputation in creating quality graphics cards and motherboards, however they have yet to make a massive splash in the mobile phone sector. In for review today is the ASUS ZenFone 6 mobile phone. Priced at just...

Large 6″ screen ; Beautiful UI ; Solid real-world performance ; 3300 mAh battery will comfortably last a whole day ; Very good value for a 6″ phone

Lacks a FHD display ; ASUS Launcher is somewhat clunky ; Charges slowly

Overall this is a great phone at a very affordable price too – especially considering it’s a 6-inch device. ASUS seem to have transferred their quality in the peripheral sector to their phone manufacturing.

Обзор фаблета Asus ZenFone 6 (A600CG)

 

Компания Asus представила огромный фаблет, который может похвастаться «интеловским» чипсетом, емкой батареей, двумя слотами под симкарты и дизайном, удостоившимся награды Red Dot Design Award 2014

После достаточно длительного тестирования могу сказать, что Asus ZenFone 6 произвел однозначно положительное впечатление: симпатичный внешний вид, качественные материалы, большой экран, классная камера, емкий аккумулятор и вполне адекватная цена.

Asus Zenfone 6 review - Big screen blower on a budget

 

Full HD screen, Nicely designed, Premium feel, Solid performance

Asus Zenfone 6

 

The 6-inch screen on Zenfone 6 is not a full HD panel. It has 1280x720p resolution that offers 245ppi. It's definitely not the best in class but still works fine. Text is not that crisp but the difference is hardly noticeable by naked eyes.

Smooth performance, intuitive Zen UI, Dual- GSM support, affordable price

Heats up during gaming and video playback, a tad bulky, screen is not full HD

ASUS Zenfone 6 Review

 

During our entire time with the Zenfone 6, it proved to be a joy to have around. The camera's UI isn't blazing fast but you can do so many things with its features and effects. Its spacious 6-inch 720p display also makes it enjoyable to watch videos...
