Asus is still present in the world of smartphones and continues to power the market. But the Taiwanese manufacturer would like to take market share with the Zenfone Zoom S.
A classic smartphone
As for the technical data, the Zenfone Zoom S is classic, offering a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen in Full HD with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, a GPU Adreno 50, 4 GB of RAM, 64 or 128 GB of RAM and a huge battery of 5000 mAh.
Similarly, the design does not seem very inspired, halfway between the iPhone 7 and Honor 8 Pro. It weighs 170 grams and adopts dimensions of 154.3 x 77 x 7.9 mm.
An AFN that wants to seduce
But Asus relies mainly on the double camera of its Zenfone Zoom S to seduce. The smartphone is equipped with two different 12-megapixel sensors, but with a different lens. The first has an aperture f / 1.7 while the other climbs to f / 2.8. Combined everything allows to play on the depth of field for a theoretically successful result.
Note that Apple already uses this technique on its iPhone 7, and that it has proved itself. The smartphone is already available at the price of 480 or 500 euros depending on the models.
