ASUS ZenFone 3 preview: High-end, mid-range and just plain enormous

59
ZenFone 3 series

ASUS returns with its strongest line of ZenFones in years — including a super-high-end Deluxe model that impresses both inside and out.

The ASUS ZenFone 2 was one of our favorite budget phones of 2015, eventually expanding into a fully-fledged range of handsets across different price points. ASUS has taken its time bringing the ZenFone 2's successor to market, skipping the year's first few tradeshows and launching the ZenFone 3 line at the Computex show in its home city of Taipei.

The third generation of ZenFones kicks off, appropriately, with three new handsets. The vanilla ZenFone 3 picks up where its immediate predecessor left off, with a fine-tuned balance of technology and design in a mid-level handset. The ZenFone 3 Deluxe supercharges things with one of the fastest processors available, the latest camera sensor from Sony, and a beautiful unibody design. And the ZenFone 3 Ultra is a modern-day successor to the FonePad of old — a huge phone with dual-SIM capabilities and a massive battery which can double as a power bank.

We've taken an early look at the new ZenFone 3 devices ahead of today's announcement, spending a scant hour or so with the new range. Read on for our first impressions.
