REVIEW:

Design:

What’s perhaps most interesting about the ASUS Zenfone 3 smartphones sudden departure from their past design language. When we thought about the ZenFone lineup previously, we thought of metallic plastic, ergonomic curves, and rear-facing volume buttons, features which were showcased excellently on the ZenFone 2 Laser. Also the volume buttons are to the right and not at the back like the earlier ASUS phones. ASUS has placed a fingerprint reader on the back of the Zenfone 3 Laser, just below the camera module.
Unlike traditional circular fingerprint readers, however, the Zenfone’s reader is in the form of a tall rectangular cutout. In fact, the Zenfone 3 lineup seems to be the first to feature this unique design. With that said, we didn’t notice a difference in speed nor accuracy when using the phone; overall, the reader performs well enough for the price.

Display:

For the display, we’re looking at a respectable 5.5″ 1080P IPS panel coated in Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Color reproduction is great, viewing angles are decent, and the display is generally good. It’s worth mentioning that you’ll be hard-pressed to find something significantly better at this price.

Performance:

Although it’s not going to wow anyone with its benchmark scores, the Zenfone 3 Laser still performs well day-to-day. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 with octa-core 64-bit processor clocked at 1.4 GHz. is, of course, an entry-level processor, but that hasn’t prevented ASUS from offering a well-optimized experience.It has this 4GB RAM which gives quite an amazing performance.

Battery:

The ASUS Zenfone 3 Laser is packing a 3000mAh battery, which translated to excellent battery life during our testing. Even when using the phone for more than twenty-four hours, we were still able to achieve over four and a half hours of screen on time. When we used the phone more heavily, we were still able to achieve twelve hours of use with six and a half hours of screen on time.

Camera:

The Zenfone 3 Laser’s 13 MP f/2.0 camera captures images that are about average in terms of quality. Excellent cameras are pretty much unheard of at this price, so we can forgive many of the shortcomings here.
