Asus is rather for us to be on Laptops and PCs, known. No wonder, the smartphone brand from Taiwan, you will not find officially with us. On the website of Asus Switzerland for instance, they are not listed. Retailers like Digitec, you can, of course, is not to stop and offer exotics. The new Asus Zenfone 6 with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage available for 589 Swiss francs – the slightly cheaper version with less memory is not available.

Nevertheless, the price is a stunner, because the device is not a model of the upper middle class, but can certainly compete with the top models from other manufacturers that are 200 to 400 francs more expensive. The SIGHT Test shows that you have to make the Zenfone smears. However, the Taiwanese have saved almost only in places that manageable are.

First of all, there is for the price of the Snapdragon 855 processor, the current Top model in the Android world. Also, the 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of memory are top of the class. The memory is also expandable.

In the battery Asus can overtake all of the other competitors. A battery with a 5000 mAh capacity can be found in any other Tophandy. And also the runtime is really impressive, finally you have to recharge the Smartphone every two days. The only disadvantage is that With 190 grams, the Smartphone is relatively heavy.

The 6.4-inch Display, you realize for the first time, where in the Zenfone saved had to be. It is at the top and on the side beautiful borderless, also because of the Selfiecam hide. Below, however, you have a pretty thick black bars. And the LCD Screen does not resolve with 2340 x 1080 pixels sharp, but it is particularly bright. The sun can be troublesome.

The dual camera can be 180 degrees upwards

The 9.0-based System is similar to the luck, more or less, to the pure Version, it has not been tinkered around with it too much. The Zenfone runs snappily pleasant and therefore comes without a Ballast.

A modern fingerprint Scanner below the screen of the Asus is not installed, but a traditional Sensor on the rear of the housing. That may be less elegant, the unlock is still considerably faster than with the System under glass. Less well you can get over that, the manufacturer does without a waterproof housing.

but That is primarily due to the Feature, which is the Zenfone 6 apart from the competition – and from the good to very good phone: to the camera system. Asus has incorporated two lenses, this Dual-Cam can be 180 degrees upwards. So you can shoot with the same camera to the front and to the rear.

The course also has disadvantages: The density of the housing on the one hand, on the other hand, a Mechanism must first prove that she is, even after two years still working perfectly. In principle, an additional is certainly more vulnerable. And in any case is slower, the VIEW has shown to Test. If you want to make a Selfie, or the face unlock, you need to wait a small moment.

The Zenfone is the best Selfie Phone on the market

The biggest advantage is of course that you always have the full Power available. And that is really good. Asus relies on a 48-Megapixel Sensor that captures 12 Megapixel sized images and the data from the Sensor expects to see together. For this purpose, a 13-Megapixel Sensor with wide-angle optics, covering an angle of 125 degrees.

the quality of The images is excellent. In critical situations, such as against light, the Zenfone just a little effort. Also, the wide angle camera can keep up, thanks to the HDR quite well. Selfies succeed better than with any other test phone in the year 2019. There is no difference to the other quality, because the same lenses are used. And, of course, you can also use Software effects such as portrait mode or Night-scene on both sides.

Awesome is the panorama function. Here you do not need to pan the phone around, it simply uses the folding mechanism. Otherwise, you can adjust the angle of the camera manually, but what makes mostly no sense. All of this is also true for Videos, especially if you are filming yourself often, has a major advantage compared to other mobile phones.

The ratio of price and performance is excellent, Asus Zenfone 6. In many areas, a top of the line unit, just need to make the screen and the water resistance of a genuine compromise. The battery and also the camera system are superior to many much more expensive Smartphones.

Therefore, the Smartphone from Taiwan is a secret tip. Especially for all of the a lot of filming and photography, and often the selfie function.
