After making its initial appearance at this year's CES, the Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom is now available to purchase, offering impressive camera features and a not-kidding-around battery at a surprisingly modest price.
The 5.5-inch Android phone sports a dual-lens 12MP camera similar to the iPhone 7 Plus, complete with 2.3x optical zoom and 4K video recording. The Zoom also has a juicy 5,000mAh battery, ensuring you can snap pictures for longer without immediately running tail to a charger.
Also helping the Zoom's case is its $329 price tag, making it less than half the cost of some competing Android phones, like the $725 Samsung Galaxy S8.
While the ZenFone 3 Zoom's camera setup, battery, and price are certainly noteworthy, some may find it's not the fasted Android device on the market — not to mention that it's still waiting on an Android Nougat update, which Asus promises will add even more photography features like a Portrait Mode and RAW image files.
You can buy a ZenFone 3 Zoom now via Amazon and Best Buy, and you can learn more about the handset's features via Asus' website. For those who want their hands on Nougat immediately along some extra processing power, the Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe might be more your speed.
