Zenfone 3 (ZE552KL) review: The Fine Crafted Design With Good Specs and Features

02:57 1 Comment
We have reviewed almost all Zenfone so far and each time Asus has improved from their experience. As per user requirement they have brought in the major changes in the device. Here we are going to review Asus newly introduced Series Zenfone 3 ZE552KL model. There are many models available in Zenfone 3 series. So let’s get started with it.

Unboxing:



Let’s start with Unboxing. Zenfone 3 comes in nicely design shining Dark Grey compact box. After opening the box you will find Zenfone 3 ZE552KL. After taking out the device you will find user manual with SIM tray ejector Pin. Device comes with USB type C Chord and wall charging adapter along with Zen-ears (inear earphones). Check the image below.

SIM Tray Ejector And User Manual

Earphones USB Type C Cable And Wall Adapter Charger

Our First Thought On the Device And Device Description:

Once you take out the device it really seems very slim and very premium. Design is eye catchy feels good in hand with their curvy edges and glass material. Device is very light weight. Zenfone 3 device have their concentric circle pattern design (AKA Zen Design) underneath 2.5D cornering gorilla glass on back side of phone make the device look glossy. But at the same time it becomes bit difficult to handle the device since it becomes sleeper to hold it or put it on any surface. So I will strongly recommend to buy new cover along with the device. I think Asus should have used something more grippy material rather than glass.

Zenfone 3 (ZE552KL) Front


Starting from the TOP device have 3.5mm audio jack. In front device have mic in the middle moving on left it have ambient and light sensor followed by front camera. Moving right side from mic we have notification LET indicator.


Moving on to the sides we have device unlock and volume rockers with zen design on them. On the other side we have hybrid SIM tray. 


Moving to the bottom of the device in front we have three buttons, rather than Asus should have provided on screen buttons on the device. But again this is the matter of choice for the users. But buttons on device with 5.5 inches screen make it difficult to reach-out either end/corner of device. There is always a risk of device drop in order to do that. At the base, device have USB type C charging port in middle and speakers on the left side.



On back side of the device starting from top we have rear camera at the middle. On right side of the camera we have laser sensor and flash on the right side. Below the camera we have FPS (Fingerprint sensor). At the bottom of the device Asus log is stamped on the device.

Specs And Features:

Zenfone 3 ZE552KL comes with good specs packed with it. Device comes with 5.5 inches Super IPS+ capacitive Full HD screen (1080 x 1920 pixels) having 401 ppi pixel density along with 2.5D cornering gorilla glass protection. The feature that I liked the most is brightness control on this device. In night time keep your brightness lowest level, it will provide good low light brightness which suit your eyes. But if you increase the brightness a bit it will improve greatly even work perfectly in Sunlight. This feature also work perfectly fine on Auto mode. The device is responsive and smooth to operate. Zenfone 3ZE552KL have Octa-core SnapDragon 625 processor (Adreno 506) clocked at 2GHz along with 4GB RAM makes your experience flawless. I am surprised with almost no heating for normal extensive gaming but it do get little heat-up while playing high graphical games. Still as gamers I am very much satisfied with performance of this device. For improving gaming performance Asus has introduced feature called Game Engine. This will assist your smartphone for tweaking the game to perform smoothly.

Zenfone 3 ZE552KL have Hybrid SIM slot that allow you to use either 2 SIM card or use one SIM and other as Micro SD card slot. But this device provide 64 GB of inbuilt storage memory (out of which 53.66 GB available for user). I find this much space handy and more than enough for majority of user. On the camera front device have 16 MP rear camera and 8 MP front camera with various shooting mode like Auto, Super resolution Mode, All Smile, Panorama mode, Miniature, Manual, Low light, In-depth and so on. With pixel-master technology integrated with Sony lenses and fast laser focus assistance along with 3 tone powerful flash the clicks good pictures in the dark places. 16 MP rear camera is also capable of recording 4K high quality videos and Full HD slow video recording. Asus has improve much since the launched of Zenfone 3, since they have design their entire Zenfone 3 series focused on camera and looks of smartphone. 

Along with all cool feature Asus has integrated lately FPS (fingerprint sensor) working flawlessly. Just a little concern with FPS is when you put on back cover it becomes difficult to reach out your figure till your sensor. But Asus made good job, despite of this FPS worked 9 out of 10 times after putting on back cove on my device. Apart from this device comes with USB type C charging which allow fast charging along with fast file transfer too. It charge your large 3000 mAh battery within one and half hour to 2 hours. Device battery last for almost entire day. 

Here are the camera sample in various modes:

Super Resolution Mode

Lowe Light Mode

HDR Mode

Heavy Usage: 8-9 hours

Moderate Usage: Entire Day


Low Usage: More than One day


Since we have tested heavily we are happy to use this device and its battery life.

ZenUI and Customization:

After setting up your device one thing you can do is disable blotwares that you will not use. Apps like Puffin Browser, Trip Advisor, Google Hangout, Asus apps you are not tens to use. Apart from this Asus has introduce their new ZneUI 3.0 with Zenfone 3 series. You can do many customizations on your device UI using ZenUI 3.0 like remove app drawer (screen like iPhone) set wall paper, set shortcut Icons on unlock screen, double tap wakeup, special action for starting particular app and much more. 

You can even set special action for Fingerprint sensor like 

· Unlock your device.

· Assign another fingerprint for special app.

· Double tap on FPS will open camera.

· While operating camera pressing FPS will click the picture.

· Long press on minimize button to take screen shot.

· Press minimize button and show recently open background app which allow you to clear memory. So no need to installed third party software for optimize phone and extend the battery life.

Mobile Manager is another app that Asus has improved their permission management that allow the user to control the apps that use the various resources like app storage, mobile Internet, camera, contacts and so on. It also provides power saver option, boosting the memory and set your data usage. Notification control is very handy feature that I personally liked it. It allows user to control their notification that they want to see. Suppose I don’t want to see notification form particular app that appear on notification bar or lock screen or just don’t want to see it at all you can manage it from there. 

App lock is another cool feature that Asus Zenfone provide as part of Zenfone 3 using either PIN or FPS or Pattern Lock. You can also use their them store to download free and premium themes and customize your UI using various features like you can set wallpaper of one theme, icons of another theme and so on. Asus also support third party themes which you can use for customization. 

Asus also provide various modes like Easy mode which basically Old Person Mode, complete with extra-large font and a maximum of 9 non-movable home screen apps. 

Kids mode that provide selected app to be used like gaming clock and camera flashlight and apps that you allow your kids to use. This mode will prevent other apps to be displayed. So whenever you want to give your device to kids just activate kids mode.

Conclusion/ Verdict:

Pros:

Zenfone 3 (ZE552KL) is excellent smartphone provide excellent battery backup with outstanding camera performance, by providing various options and 4K video recording capabilities. On the gaming front Snapdragon 625 perform very well with Game engine feature that has been included in Zenfone 3 by Asus. On the other hand, even though using internet connectivity for whole day device provide battery backup for entire day. FPS work very well and fast enough to unlock the device and apps and another functions setup by user. Music tweaks works well with earphones provided with the device. Asus provided Audio Wizard to customized the Music experience. ZenUI also response flawlessly and very responsive. 

Cons:

Use of the glass on both side of device make it sleepery from hand other surfaces. Device is bit overpriced for this configuration.

So Asus has answered to the question for their users and launched Asus Zenfone Max. Really speaking Asus Zenfone Max is revamped version of Asus Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KL, With larger battery life. Just for quickliner note Asus Zenfone Max (ZC550KL) is available in 2 versions Black and White on Flipkart and Amazon for INR 9,999/-.


Asus-Zenfone-Max-Review

Unboxing Of Zenfone Max :

After opening the box user will first see 5.5 inches device with shining screen and premium looking Zenfone Max. Once you take out the device underneath you will find Power adapter, charging USB cable, along with OTG cable, warranty card and user manual.

Design Of Zenfone Max :

Device design is very much similar with earlier Zenfone device. As started earlier Zenfone Max is revamped model of Zenfone Laser, only difference is design is similar to earlier zenfone 5 and 6 series. This device has volume button placed in right side of device. Beside power button also placed along with volume buttons instead of placing it on top of the device.

Asus-Zenfone-Max-Review

The body of the device is made form durable and premium looking plastic. Aparat from that you can check on above pic golden strip surrounding the device making it look more premium and make your grip more firm on the device. Well taking about the back side, it's made of lather kind of material finish which make your device look royal.

Asus-Zenfone-Max-Review

As we can see camera is placed on top center of the device which have dual- tone flash light on it's left and laser sensor on the right side. Exactly below the camera there is Asus branding. Followed by speaker at the bottom of the device. Zenfone Max is having removable back cover, where power beast 5000 mAh battery reside along with 4G enabled dual Micro SIM slot with dedicated memory card slot. There is also LED notification light with accelerometer, light,proximity, and magnetic sneror are integrated with this device.

Asus-Zenfone-Max-Review

This device weights 200 grams with battery. But while holding device it feels sturdy and hard even though it's heavy. Device design is such way that it feel nice to hold the device and easy to have formal grip on device.

Display And Storage :

Asus Zenfone Max have 5.5 inches IPS touchscreen supporting HD display 1280 X 720 pixel resolution. Device comes wit Gorilla glass 4 protection having good viewing angles with responsive smooth touch. Device is very responsive and smooth to work with. 



On the other hand if we talk about, storage device comes with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB internal storage. On the first boot you will get 11 GB of internal storage free and around 1 GB of RAM. If you still want to expand the storage then you have dedicated SD card slot support 64 GB capacity. All apps at first install in internal storage then you can move them to SD card. 

Performance, OS and Benchmarks :

Device is powered with Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410 quad core 64 Bit processor clocked at 1.2GHz coupled with Adreno 306. The device is very smooth in performance, lag free in normal usage. But while intense task will drain more power and device tend to heatup till 40-45 degree. But device heat will not be felt much outside.

Asus-Zenfone-Max-Review

Still device prfrome well under almost every condition. You can checkout AnTuTu benchmark above socring 25643 And NenaMark score is 53.9 FPS which is considered as average and good for average users. The only reason we can think of using this lower powered chip-set is because, Asus want to make this device more power efficient. 

Regarding OS it runs ZenUI on Android Lollipop 5.0.2 provide the more customization to users. 

If we talk about gaming it's an overall good experience considering the device pricing. We have tried Real Cricket and Real racing and most popular Asphalt 8 on normal config they are performing laglessly but as we increase graphic quality device tend to become little leggy. But overall it perform well on normal mode.

Camera And Battery :

As it's trendy all devices are equipped with 13 MP rear camera along with 5 MP front shooter. Rear 13 MP camera is assisted by Dual tone flash and laser senor to provide you with best quality images. Only problem so far, we have faced with this device areas where light is more bright are over exposed and almost become whitish ( but this can be get fixed in new update of Camera app by Asus ). Check the image below.

On the battery part device provide good battery back up. Device comes with normal charging technology which point of disappointment since it will take very long time to charge. Using charger provided with Zenfone Max, it will take around 3 hour to get it charge. So make it faster you can chose suitable fast charger. But battery back of Zenfone Max is excellent. Continuous heavy usage of Zenfone Max allow you to use battery upto 16-17 Hours. Where as using device with heavy usage it last for 2 days and for moderate usage it can last upto 4 days. We are very happy with it's excellent battery backup. Not only 5000 mAh battery provide power to Zenfone Max it can also charge your other devices. Yes it can also work like power bank.

Final Words :

Pros :

  • 5000 mAh battery.
  • Camera is Good in outdoor and indoor as well as low light conditions
  • Good performance and software.
  • Dual SIM
  • Dedicated Memory card slot.
  • Work As power bank

Cons :

  • Lack of fast charging
  • while charging other device charging way too slower.
  • Non removable battery
  • Heavy to hold
  • Brightness can kill your image.
People who want longer battery life with social working but moderate users on gaming part then this device is your best bet under 10,000INR. As compared to Gionee and Lenovo, Asus has done excellent job providing large battery with good performance smartphone under 10000 mark. the device is bit heavy due to battery of weight and other components but it feels really premium and solid to hold. So if you are running short on the budget and don't want to charge the device once in a day then this device is your best bet.
