What are the strengths of the ZenFone 4 Pro? We explain its advantages and disadvantages when compared to other smartphone. Even if you are not used to choosing between different smartphone, you'll learn to make the decision of whether or not the ZenFone 4 Pro is right for you.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the ZenFone 4 Pro

ZenFone 4 Pro's size

The ZenFone 4 Pro is 3.0inches (75.6mm) wide, 6.2inches (156.9mm) tall, and 0.3inches (7.6mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the ZenFone 4 Pro, it weighs about 6.2oz (175g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the ZenFone 4 Pro, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

ZenFone 4 Pro's screen

The ZenFone 4 Pro has a 5.5 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen of the ZenFone 4 Pro is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The CPU performance of ZenFone 4 Pro

The ZenFone 4 Pro has an extremely high processing power of 2.6GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The ZenFone 4 Pro has a very high RAM capacity at 6GB. There are few cases where the RAM capacity would be insufficient, so it is also well suited to multitasking. It's unlikely to feel slow even when switching between several different apps.

The ZenFone 4 Pro is an exceptional high-end smartphone. You will be fully content with its performance in all areas. It is a must-have for you if operation performance is important for you.

ZenFone 4 Pro's storage capacity

The ZenFone 4 Pro has 128GB of data storage, which is perfect for people who frequently take photos and videos. It is suited to taking both photos and videos, and is unlikely to feel inconvenient even with lots of apps or games installed.

Since the ZenFone 4 Pro is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

The camera function of ZenFone 4 Pro

The ZenFone 4 Pro has a 16 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The ZenFone 4 Pro comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of ZenFone 4 Pro

The ZenFone 4 Pro has a relatively large battery with 3600mAh. The ZenFone 4 Pro has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Overall assessment of ZenFone 4 Pro

The ZenFone 4 Pro is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
