Note: I received the 8 Flip 256GB instead of 8GB/256GB Zenfone 8 from the NGP Store 3rd party seller...the unit also came with a 220v EU-spec charger､祢've owned the 5.2" Zenfone 3 Max & 5.5" 3 Deluxe, 5.7" Zenfone Max Plus, the 6.0" Max Pro [****] and the 6GB Zenfone 4 Pro !As Zenfone goes I know them all, this 8/8 Flip continue the recent tradition of being only offered as flagship devices.As a long Asus tradition as well 8 Flip also comes with NO Wireless Charging and NO IP68 rating.It's the 3rd-generation of Flip 胴 devices in this line of smartphones.It's an almost perfect phone that delivers in every measure and surpasses others in front camera capabilities but also comes with a very annoying plague you see on most other phones today, NO 3.5mm JACK 弍I use this beast for gaming mostly, taking pics/vids and browsing the web and it performs super fast even in Ultra Durable power mode with multiple apps opened 潮Cons:> no headphone jack! WTF?! (stop corrupting Android with stupid Apple ideas);> only 8G RAM available (well 7260MB to be exact, when uploading pictures to Amazon reviews it actually tells me sometimes it's "CAN'T COMPETE ACTION MEMORY TOO LOW!, that only happened on my 2GB RAM Zenfone 3 Max before, it REALLY needs 12GB RAM);> weight of 230g+ (it WILL feel heavy in your hand);> very unimpressive battery life in High Performance mode (running benchmarks you'll see the battery drop a % every minute);> unimpressive charging times (about 100+ mins with Quick Charge 4.0 from 2%);Pros:> 100% network compatibility, my Simple Mobile SIM works with 3G, 4G and also 5G T-Mobile bands;> beautiful high quality aluminum construction (remember the Zenfone 3 Deluxe, yeah it's a repeat);> flawless edge-edge 90Hz 1000-nit Samsung display with 393dpi;> flagship Sony IMX686/IMX363 photo sensors + long 8MP ZOOM lens Front/Back (Flip motor sounds strong and durable, I love playing with that thing, it has fantastic light detection and resolution choices but 64MP is only in 4:3 aspect);> 2 loud & clear HD Audio speakers (bottom of phone/top of screen with aptX, Dirac and awesome equalizer effects);> strong battery life if used in Very Durable, Durable or Casual power modes (capable of running 90fps in all 3 power saver modes);> intuitive Android 11 OS with a ton of customisation options, classic mode and a few classic ZenUI touches like Game Genie with awesome gaming features;> superb heat management (SD888/A660 get very hot during benchmarks but stay so cool when heavy gaming 30min+);> excellent WI-FI connectivity and transfer speeds;> high benchmark scores compared to other SDM888 devices;I must say that I wanted to skip the Zenfone 8 Flip due to the complex camera design and enormous screen size (it's not as big as it first seems) but since getting it I'm warming up to it more and more everyday, it's a heavy monster with a ton of power and unconventional style that would be PERFECT to me if it had a 3.5mm jack but.......I'm still ordering the 12GB/16GB Zenfone 8 so I can compare them closer and make my choice accordingly.I'd still recommend this to any Zenfone fan, it doesn't disappoint.....5-stars 総
Simple to set up and very intuitive. Awesome functionality with a great screen and camera. With that said I have a few issues:1) Flip Camera: Although it is cool and takes better photos that most selfie cameras (because the good camera flips around) if you want to use face recognition the camera will have to flip every time and obviously you can't use it when it's lying on a desk.2) The fingerprint seems to only work about half the time and I'm still getting used to trying to locate the exact spot on the screen to press. My last phone a pixel 2xl had the fingerprint on the back which was very natural and worked every time.3) Although this is a small issue it is still troublesome for me. They do give you a case, but unfortunately it is extremely slippery and just begs to slide out of your hand. Much more so than the silicone cases. would recommend getting an adhesive ring grip (I sued Spigen style ring grip and car mount) which still looks good and will give you something to hold on to.
