The ASUS ZenFone 3 is one of the few smartphones out there that can take 4K video recordings and still be priced below RM2K. We did a hands-on of both the 4K video recording as well as the full HD 1080p video recording. Both were taken with rather shaky hands and you can really see the effects of Video Stabilization in the FHD 1080p video recording. While the 4K video recording does not allow you turn on Video Stabilization, the shaking isn't as bad as expected but you can see for yourself in the videos below.

We managed to get the full set of the ASUS ZenFone 3 ZE552KL so we're doing a more detailed unboxing and hands-on video compared to yesterday's on-site hands-on (sorry for the shaky cam). Priced at RM1699 the ZE552KL goes for a metal frame and 2.5D curved glass front and back design but this time we got the not so shiny black coloured version. Check out the video and tech specs in this article.

Coming in at RM1699 and RM 1499 respectively, the ASUS ZenFone 3 ZE552KL and ZE520KL sport the same metal frame with 2.5D glass front and back. Asides from the screen size, both are nearly identical with a super slim 7.69mm thin body. Very light and looking super premium, the phone can still record 4K video and do a whole lot more, despite having a price tag below RM2000.
