ASUS ZenFone Zoom Review

30
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with the kind of camera sensor you expect to find in a mid-range, $400 phone, and when you combine that with the outdated software on the phone the end result is decidedly mediocre.

LG's modular, dual-everything G5 could be one big play for differentiation

84
LG G5 invite

It's hard to stand out. But LG's next Android flagship — the G5 — might have a few new tricks up its sleeve.

Over the past three and a half years, LG has slowly grown into the de facto alternative to Samsung in many markets around the world, including the U.S.

Since the rebirth of the firm's "G" series in 2013 with the LG G2, the company has put differentiation the heart of its products. The G2 was the first to feature LG's famous rear-mounted buttons. The G3 was the first mainstream Quad HD phone, and the first with laser autofocus. And the G4 mixed things up with a leather-backed design and impressive RAW photo capabilities. Most recently, the V10 introduced dual front-facing cameras and a secondary ticker display.

So where next for the other Korean manufacturer, with a new flagship phone on the way in just a few weeks and a pressing need to recover from lackluster financial performance in mobile in recent months. Let's dive in.

Best Buy offers $50 off gold Nexus 6P, throws in $25 gift card

52

Best Buy is currently offering a solid deal on the gold Nexus 6P, cutting its price by $50 and throwing in a $25 gift card to boot. While this deal is only for the gold variant, it does include both the 32GB and 64GB models, knocking the down to $449 and $499, respectively.

The Nexus 6P was originally released in September, and we've seen a number of deals on the smartphone since. This latest deal on the gold variant from Best Buy matches a similar promotion that the Google Store is currently running, albeit with the addition of a $25 gift card.

It's not entirely clear how long the sale will last, but it's a solid deal worth grabbing if you're interested in Google's latest high-end Nexus. And if you're interested in our impressions of the gold Nexus 6P, be sure to give our hands-on a quick look.

Thanks for the tip, Jaime!
