Stunning! Asus basically made an Iphone 7 (dual camera + design) but add a 3.5mm phone jack and pump the battery to a whopping 5000mAh! This can be the most interesting phone of 2017. Qualcomm 625 + 5000mAh = stunning battery life that would even shame the Moto Z play. I want one!
Really digging the design of the phone, and no, not because it looks like an iPhone 7 Plus.
All Rounder Smartphone...! Really Incredible...! But, Ram & Rom... Variant (2gb+32gb), (3gb+64gb), (4gb+128gb)... Edit Your Specifications.
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2017Why snap 625!!!
They should at least put snap 653
So disaponting with this chipBecause it's a 28nm chip with A72 cores, powerful but battery hungry.
And heats up easily.
625 is 14nm with 8 A53, not anywhere as powerful, but enough for 90% of the job.
And is not very battery hungry, and does not over heats.
I'm happy that they used Snapdragon 625 rather than 653 (14nm vs. 28nm), as long as you are not a serious gamer or need higher screen resolution than full HD (1920x1080), this CPU is the one to have right now. My brother have the Moto Z Play (uses 625) and it has REALLY good battery life! The ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom seems to have good cameras as well which is a new combination with this CPU.
I have no idea how ASUS has treated their Android GUI for the phone (most users like it cleaner/closer to stock Android) but just reading the hardware specifications, ASUS could have a winner here. But I can't find any information regarding NFC, I personally would not buy a phone without it.
The price tag will make all the possible difference between a huge hit and a total fail.

But since it has a 5k Mah battery,i think it can handle a 653 chipset easily for few days.With the 625 or 626 who knows how long...

Using camera continuously drains a lot of battery specially if you're recording in 4K.
If you're looking for heavy gaming phone at a mid range price then I'd suggest Oneplus 3/3T, the 3T has the latest SD-821 that you are looking for. Or save up a bit and just buy a flagship.

I dont need an BANG OF THE BUCK phone with lack SC. (Xiaomi Mi5 for example) Zenfone 3 Zoom its my need. (The truth the most user really dont need High SoC cause normal usually user dialy)
wow amazing dual camera ...3x optical zoom and 12x full zoom
i like this
its camera specs are mad but its processor isn't the latest processor out at the moment because the latest out know is the snapdragon 821 and this smart device is 625 i'm very unimpressed because i was looking for a phone which high performance specs but on the bright side the build quality looks so top notch and its camera specs aren't that bad to be honest
