ASUS has just announced the general availability of the ZenFone 3 Zoom. With a focus on insane battery life and an impressive dual-camera set for instant dedicated optical zoom, ASUS has wrapped a pretty fantastic phone up inside a svelte 7.99mm all-metal build.

Now that I've been using it for three weeks or so, I've discovered some nice quirks that I've come to appreciate in daily use.
