On direct specs comparison, we find it amusing that the Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom with an expected sub PHP 25K price tag can somehow compete with the higher-end Huawei P9 Plus.

While the chipset of the ZenFone 3 Zoom isn't as fast compared with the flagship 2.5 GHz 64 bit Kirin 955 octa core processor of the P9 Plus, it is still a very capable one. Snapdragon 625 w/ Adreno 506 GPU is good enough to load most of the heavy games around. Both phones has the same RAM and internal storage as well.


Checking the battery, we were in awe how Asus placed a 5,000 mAh battery w/ Quick Charge 3.0 on a 7.99 mm slim frame. The 3,400 mAh battery w/ 3A Quick Charge support of Huawei's P9 Plus is also good at 3,400 mAh, but it clearly lags in battery capacity compared with ZenFone 3 Zoom.

On the camera part, Asus has a lot of things going in their 12 MP f/1.7 Sony IMX362 w/ 25 mm wide angle lens + 12 MP Sony f/2.8 w/ 56 mm lens for 2.3x optical zoom w/ Tri-tech AF, 4 Axis OIS, 3 Axis EIS, 4K video recording and dual tone LED flash setup. We're initially impressed on what it can do even if it isn't on retail ready software yet. It can do optical zoom more than Apple's iPhone 7 Plus, has good proper wide angle lens, and can bokeh your background without the need of software tricks.


We think that if Asus can pull off its software and proper post processing, the ZenFone 3 Zoom might have a chance to compete with Huawei's proven dual camera setup found on the Huawei P9 Plus.

Actual shootout anyone?
