ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe (ZS570KL) first impressions hands-on


The ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe (ZS570KL) breaks new ground for ASUS as the first ZenFone to actually have tech specs, features and looks that equal a current flagship smartphone. This includes a slim metal frame with curved back that looks stunning with no visible antenna bands. Featuring a 5.7-inch FHD display it comes in two variants, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 version with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage along with the Snapdragon 821 version packing in 6GB RAM and 256GB storage. Both still offer microSD slots and 23MP PixelMaster 3.0 rear cameras with OIS, EIS, 4K and HDR video recording.


Our brief hands-on with the ZenFone 3 Deluxe revealed a slim, all metal smartphone both on the front and back that looks sleek, slim and well worth the RM3299 price the higher-end version is asking for and if you don't need the extra storage or faster processor you still get an awesome looking flagship phone for RM2599. ASUS have made a clear winner here while maintaining the ZenFone design language that the company had starting out. No specific Malaysia release dates yet but it is due this month.
