Although released in 2015, the Asus Zenfone Zoom still goes strong. It features a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. At the price, I would say that the display is totally worth it. It is also protected using Corning Gorilla Glass 3 so you won’t get those ugly scratches. The Asus Zenfone Zoom price in Kenya starts from Kshs 20,000.


The Asus Zenfone Zoom measures 158.9 x 78.8 x 12 mm and weighs 185 grams. I would consider it a little bit too heavy for my liking. However, since it is 5.5 inch, you can elect to overlook that. The rear camera is 13MP and has various features such as autofocus, geotagging and smile detection. You will find these features really helpful especially if you love taking photographs.asus-phones-in-kenya

Asus Zenfone Zoom runs on Intel Atom Quad Core 2.3 Ghz and has a RAM od 2GB. Therefore, you get high end performance in this smartphone. Just like the iPhone, this device comes with PowerVR GPU, this means better performance when it comes to games and other visual tasks. In the internasl storage department, the smartphone ships with 16GB of internal storage. If you like, you can expand this to 64GB using an external memory card.

When it comes to the battery, the Asus Zenfone Zoom comes with 3000mAh that will last you the whole day on average usage.
