ASUS ZenFone Zoom Review

27
ZenFone Zoom

Clever hardware elevates an already great phone line even higher, but the execution stumbles a bit.

The quick take

ASUS has taken the the already impressive ZenFone 2 and turned it into something fun for anyone who enjoys the control of a DSLR camera but isn't planning on walking around with one every day. That means you get a solid, snappy phone with a decent display and some clever camera hardware with matching visual styling to support the experience. Unfortunately that clever hardware experience is coupled with the kind of camera sensor you expect to find in a $400 camera, and when you combine that with the outdated software on the phone the end result is decidedly mediocre.

Hands-on with Particle Electron, a DIY IoT kit with cellular radios

2

The confusing mess of products and services in the Internet of Things exists in two basic forms right now. You have the off-the-shelf products that only support a handful of things you have to buy separately in order to make that thing truly useful, or you have a pile of developer boards and starter kits that encourage you to build something yourself. The DIY space for IoT is a lot of fun if you know what you're doing, but if you're not already familiar with a lot of this equipment it can be more than a little challenging, especially if you want to do more than connect to the local Wifi network to do things.

Particle's new Electron kit hopes to fix this by offering a board with access to 2G and 3G networks as part of the package, meaning your project can go anywhere you go by default.
