Zenfone 8

Zenfone 8
The Asus Zenfone 8 may be the most surprising phone of 2021 with top-of-the-line performance in the smallest Android flagship in years.
The Asus Zenfone 8 is a solid flagship phone at a sub-flagship price, though inevitably there are compromises: there’s no telephoto lens or wireless charging, and it misses out on its predecessor’s novel flip camera that let the rear lenses rotate forward to take selfie shots. You can still get that camera in the limited-release Asus Zenfone 8 Flip, but the regular Zenfone 8 delivers top-tier specs at the most affordable price since the OnePlus 6T.
The Zenfone 8 is a compact, powerful phone. WIth its top-tier specs and decent camera performance, it punches well above its weight, especially given this price point.
With two impressive cameras, a top-notch chipset, and a compact build, the Asus Zenfone 8 could be just right for fans of small phones and Android.
The Asus ZenFone 8 is a nice Android answer to Apple's iPhone 12 mini. We appreciate its very good performance, its fairly comfortable autonomy at 120 Hz and its beautiful screen.
With the Zenfone 8, Asus is trying to meet the expectations of users who are exasperated by the imposing dimensions of high-end smartphones. The manufacturer therefore offers an (almost) complete device (all that is missing is a photo sensor equipped with an optical zoom and the possibility of recharging the battery wirelessly!), Which offers high performance and great versatility, all in a very compact format and with an attractive design. A success !
