Features, Performance, and Reviews for the ZenFone 5Z

ZenFone 5Z's size

The ZenFone 5Z is 3.0 inches (75.6 mm) wide, 6.0 inches (153 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (7.7 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the ZenFone 5Z, it weighs about 165 oz (165 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the ZenFone 5Z, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

ZenFone 5Z's screen

The ZenFone 5Z has a 6.2 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 5Z 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 5Z

The ZenFone 5Z has an extremely high processing power of 2.8GHz×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 5Z 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 5Z 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 5Z's storage capacity

The ZenFone 5Z 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 5Z 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 5Z

The main camera of the ZenFone 5Z has a capacity of 12 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The ZenFone 5Z 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 5Z

The ZenFone 5Z has a relatively large battery with 3300 mAh. The ZenFone 5Z 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 5Z

The ZenFone 5Z is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
