News about ASUS ZenFone Zoom (ZX551ML)

The Mobile World Congress (a.k.a MWC) 2018, one of the biggest events in the mobile industry has just recently ended last Friday in Barcelona. As we look back at the festivities, MWC this year felt a little underwhelming, probably because Samsung stole the show before the event even officially began with the launch of the Galaxy S9. Nevertheless, the show still had its fair share of highlights that is worth talking about. Hence, below are some of the most notable handsets that were seen last week.

Asus Zenfone Zoom Price, Specs, and Review Malaysia

Zenfone Zoom ZX551ML: An all-around mobile package

The Asus Zenfone Zoom is a mid-range mobile phone that is packed with a range of impressive features including a high-definition display, expandable internal storage, and a cutting-edge camera that can take photos at 3x optical zoom. If you’re looking for a decent camera mobile phone, this device is a sure-fire bet. Here is a rundown of the Asus Zenfone Zoom specs and features.

Elegant design

The Asus Zenfone Zoom is equipped with an elegant chassis on the front with a 5MP selfie camera that provides decent images. You will also find the 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with 1080x1920p resolution and a 401ppi pixel density. On the back, you will get access to the 13MP camera with LED flash and the exterior made of faux leather that feels nice to the touch.

HD display

With its 1080x1920p display, expect a pleasant viewing experience on the Asus Zenfone Zoom while playing your favorite mobile games or watching movies and TV shows. You will enjoy browsing through websites as well, as its 5.5-inch IPS display offers a pixel density of 401ppi and 16M colors, resulting in clear, crisp, and color-rich visuals.

Neat user-interface

The Asus Zenfone Zoom ZX551ML runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with a number of useful apps onboard, such as Clean Master. Aside from that, you will get access to the Zen UI that offers a range of customizable options like setting a lock for your applications.

Impressive processor and GPU

The Asus Zenfone Zoom is powered by an Intel Atom Z3590 chip with 4 cores clocked at 2.5 GHz. This processor delivers enough performance for running various apps and games. And with its PowerVR G6430 GPU, the Zenfone Zoom can run many graphically-intensive mobile games, making it a great all-around mobile package. Aside from that, the device also comes with a 4GB of RAM that enables the device to multitask between apps seamlessly. For this reason, it is one of the few devices in the budget segment that are able to deliver an impressive hardware performance.

Adequate color balance and detail

Asus equipped a 13MP sensor on the Zenfone Zoom ZX551ML. While the photos are not as good as those from flagship devices, the Zenfone Zoom’s rear sensor offers good shots with decent color reproduction and a great amount of detail. But the device’s marquee feature is its 3X optical zoom that offers images with adequate color balance and detail, even after zooming a subject.

All-day battery life

The Asus Zenfone Zoom houses a 3000 mAh battery capacity which can last through the day with moderate use. Even after a day of browsing, messaging, gaming, movie-watching, picture-taking, calling, etc., you will still have around 20% battery left at the end of the day.
