Asus Zenfone 6Z Review and Full Specification With Techie Badshah

Asus Zenfone 6Z Review and Full Specification With Techie Badshah

Asus has launched its new smartphone Asus Zenfone 6Z in April 2019. It comes with a bigger display screen. The smartphone features the Android platform as an operating system and a feature of a flip camera.

The display is protected with a 2.5D curved glass screen and Blue Light Filter for night mode. Other features include Capacitive and Multi-touch.

The smartphone comes with a Screen size of 6.53-inches AMOLED, FHD+ Display with a resolution of 1080 x 23400 Pixels, and 18:9 Ratio. The screen is IPS and the pixel density is 409 PPI (pixels per inch).

Asus Zenfone 6Z runs on Android 9.0 Pie OS with Asus Zen UI operating system. The phone is powered by Octa-Core 1x 2.84 GHz Kryo 485 3x 2.42 GHz Kryo 485 4x 1.8 GHz Kryo 485 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, 64-bit Processor.

The smartphone is fueled with 3500 mAh, Li-Polymer battery capacity which is non-removable. Also, the phone supports Fast charging with a Charger output power of 5 V (volts) / 2 A (amps).

Asus Zenfone 6Z Price in India

The ASUS 6Z price in India is expected to be around Rs 29,990. ASUS might launch the 6Z and the same will be expected to be launched in India on June 19, 2019.

Asus Zenfone 6Z has done an absolutely fabulous job with the 6Z design. If you want your phones to be distinct, the flip camera is enough of a head-turner you’d ever need. The zany branding on the back and the full view screen further ensure that the 6Z remains at the top of modern trends. Once you get past these novelties, you’d appreciate the 6Z even more. That’s because there are no unpleasant surprises here and all basics are well covered. Why the 6Z design works also has a lot to do with the good quality and full view IPS LCD panel that covers most of the front. Once you have lived with and are used to the uninterrupted expanse of the screen, the notch cutouts (all kinds) feel archaic.

Flagship phones, in general, have got bigger and bulkier this year, which is perhaps why wielding Asus 6Z feels rather convenient – even when it weighs a significant 190 grams. The heft is at least well justified considering the massive 5000mAh battery residing within the solid glass-metal casing.

The capacitive fingerprint sensor on the rear is easily accessible, also there is a USB Type-C port at the bottom, and the phone retains the 3.5mm audio jack.

Needless to say, Asus has used premium materials to build its new Zenfone flagship. There is metal running along the sides and gorilla glass on front and rear. The retail unit will bundle with a hard polycarbonate case.

The 6Z weighs 190 grams and the thickness varies between 8.4mm and 9.1mm – which is pretty reasonable for a 5000mAh battery phone.

Asus Zenfone 6Z Flip Camera

The most exciting and unique element in the Asus Zenfone 6Z has to be its flip camera.

The flip camera is great for shooting panoramas and semi-panoramas, and it also makes the 6Z essentially a great have for selfie enthusiasts. After the latest update, the camera retracts and flips as expected. The Flip module doesn’t feel very solid or sturdy, but Asus claims it has been tested for more than 100,000 flips, and after flipping the cameras to our heart’s content through the duration of this review, we are inclined to believe these stats. The selfie camera takes a bit more time to position itself when compared to a pop-up camera, and the Asus 6Z doesn’t have an option for direct face unlock. You will have to swipe up on the lock screen for the facial recognition to trigger. But really, this isn’t a major peeve point. The fast and reliable rear fingerprint sensor has the biometric unlocking covered.

Asus has also added a smart key, which by default is a google assistant button. You can also map it to a few other predefined actions. The concept of an extra button to quickly trigger frequently used tasks is good in theory, but we still didn’t find ourselves using Smart Key very often. That’s because it’s positioned a little too close to the top and you can’t map apps to it yet.

Asus Zenfone 6Z Display

As mentioned above, a big part of the 6Z charm is its display. In fact, the main attraction of the phone, the flip camera, is more of a means to an end, or rather this end-to-end display.

Asus isn’t using an AMOLED screen, but the IPS LCD screen you’d get is not a compromise but a strength. We are quite pedantic about our phone screens, and we are quite taken by the panel on the 6Z.

Since this is an IPS LCD panel, the full HD resolution is sharper than analogous AMOLED phones. The display has high contrast, wide dynamic range, offers options to choose between different color profiles (we prefer standard), and the same is very light on eyes.

Asus also adds a system-wide dark theme (for some reasons blacks aren’t as dark as 6Z can go in many places), and a useful blue light filter (Night light). And yes, the screen has an excellent oleo phobic coating and is protected by Gorilla Glass 6 on top.

One minor peeve point is auto brightness. It’s very responsive but every now and then our phone went either too bright or too dim.
