Review Asus Zenfone 7 ZS670KS | Zenfone 7 Pro ZS671KS – There are two smartphones in this series that ASUS released, namely Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro. Both of them pack almost identical specifications, except for the Zenfone 7 Pro which is of course the highest version with more powerful specifications.
Starting from the display, we get an AMOLED screen measuring 6.67 inches coated with Gorilla Glass 6 which offers Full HD Plus resolution (1080 x 2400 pixels) with a high aspect ratio of 20: 9 along with supporting 90Hz refresh rate and 200Hz touch sampling rate.
The screen on this smartphone is also equipped with DC dimming including the Always on feature, with HDR10 + support, 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and has a peak brightness of 1,000 nits.
The ASUS Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro have a flip camera module that comes with an upgrade. Where now ASUS uses a new, smaller motor that can withstand loads of 35 kg.
Unlike the Zenfone 6, the flip-up camera on the Zenfone 7 smartphone we get a total of three cameras consisting of a 64 megapixel Sony IMX686 main camera with 2 × 1 OCL autofocus and OIS accompanied by a 12 megapixel Sony IMX686 ultrawide camera.
Finally we get an 8 megapixel telephoto lens which offers 3x optical zoom and 12x digital zoom capability. The camera on this smartphone is also equipped with interesting photography features such as Dual Pixel AF and HyperSteady Video mode.
There’s also an HDR video mode with an improved night mode algorithm, 8K video recording support at 30fps, 120fps slow motion, dual LED flash, and the camera can function as a macro lens for taking 4cm close-up photos.
What’s more interesting, you can take advantage of all three cameras to take great selfies by lifting the flip module up. There’s no need to worry about damage, because ASUS promises the flip camera can last up to 5 years with 100 uses every day.
ASUS entrusts Qualcomm’s latest flagship chipset called Snapdragon 865 Plus which is paired with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
But it belongs to the ZenFone 7 Pro, while the regular version has to make do with the Snapdragon 865 which comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. If it’s still lacking, both ZenFone 7 and ZenFone 7 Pro are equipped with a microSD card to allow you to add more storage.
Another no less important highlight on the two ASUS ZenFone 7 Series smartphones is the 5,000 mAh capacity battery which is bigger than its predecessor, and it comes with 30W HyperCharge capable of charging from 0 to 60% in just 34 minutes.
The smartphone running on Android 10 OS based on the ZenUI 7 interface has a stereo speaker with three microphones, dual-SIM, support for 5G connectivity, NFC, dual-frequency GPS, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, a side-placed fingerprint sensor, and USB Type-C.
