Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom review: A promising phone that falls victim to bad software and cut corners

Asus was not on the radar of most US phone buyers until the ZenFone 2 popped up a few years ago with solid specs for a reasonable price, but the ZenFone 3 family hasn't been as prominent. It took Asus ages to roll these devices out in North America, and the pricing was not as generous. However, there are more variants of the ZenFone 3 still trickling out, from the flagship-level "Deluxe Special Edition" to the low-cost "Laser." The ZenFone 3 Zoom is somewhere in the middle with its $329 price tag and mid-range Snapdragon 625 chip.

The ZenFone 3 Zoom has some very impressive aspects, like the massive 5,000mAh battery and a camera with 2.3x optical zoom.

Verizon's ASUS ZenPad Z8 tablet is receiving its Android 7.0 Nougat update

Android Oreo (yes, I'm calling it) is almost here, but not all devices are equal when it comes to update speed. In this case, both the manufacturer (ASUS) and carrier (Verizon) are well-known for updating devices rather slowly, which is probably why it's taken until nearly June of 2017 to update the ZenPad Z8 to Android 7.0 Nougat. But hey, it's here now.

Mobile VR hasn't really taken off, and Google's augmented-reality Project Tango experiment is in the same boat. The first publicly-available phone with Project Tango, the Lenovo Phab2 Pro, launched last year. If you read our review, you'll know that the massive size, poor performance, and price made it a hard sell even for VR/AR enthusiasts.

Unfortunately, the upcoming Tango-powered ZenFone AR already has a major flaw; it will be a Verizon-exclusive in the United States.

The 5,000mAh ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom is available now for $329

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.
