Asus Zenfone 8 review, two months later: Still small, still mighty

Asus has built a steady presence in the mobile industry with help from its recent ROG Phone series. But it's been chasing a general audience (mostly in Asia) for much longer with its Zenfone lineup, attempting to please everyone and usually failing. Now, after a couple of devices with cameras that can flip from back to front, the Taiwanese brand is going small against a tide of big phones with the ⋮Zenfone 8.

The only "small" Snapdragon 888 phone is now available in the US

Asus may not be spoken about in the same breath as Google, Samsung, and Apple, but it's quietly had an excellent first half of the year.

Both 2021 ZenFone flagships are barely a week old, but the company has already released a big software update, which comes with a slew of new features and general improvements.

Asus stuffs Galaxy S21 power into the body of a Pixel 4a, calls it Zenfone 8

Taiwan-based manufacturer Asus is well-known for its PCs and, these days, its ROG Phones for gamers. But it's always had a stake in mobile tilted towards a wider audience, too.

Leaks spill all the beans ahead of the Asus ZenFone 8 launch event

Leaks spill all the beans ahead of the Asus ZenFone 8 launch event

Asus is still very much an also-ran in the smartphone world, but that gives it the space to try some unconventional designs that many find appealing.
