At DxOMark, the handset achieved a Photo score of 126, Zoom score of 54, and a Video score of 108 for an average camera of 120 points
—the highest-rated Zenfone yet. At 126 points, it is in the bracket of the Google Pixel 5, Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G, and Mi 11.

DxO noted that it has a good texture/noise tradeoff in most conditions, good target exposure in indoor scenes, good subject exposure when tele-zooming even in backlit scenes, and more, among others. It just has slow autofocus in high-contrast and low light scenes and a few more weak points.

It is not bad considering that the Zenfone 8 only has two cameras—the 64MP f/1.8 Sony IMX686 with PDAF and OIS + 12MP f/2.2 Sony IMX683 with Dual PD autofocus and 4cm macro.

Moreover, the ASUS Zenfone 8 is one of the most affordable smartphones in the country with flagship-grade specs and a compact size with a starting price tag of just PHP 34,995.

With a DXOMARK Camera score of 120, the Asus Zenfone 8 makes it into the top group in the DXOMARK Premium segment ranking, on the same level as the Xiaomi Mi 11 and only narrowly beaten by the segment leader, the Apple iPhone 12 (122).

Good overall still image quality for the price bracket results in a Photo score of 126, very close to its direct rival Xiaomi Mi 11 (127) and a few points ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G (Exynos) at 123.

The mid-table Zoom score of 54 reflects the lack of an optical tele lens, which results in inferior tele zoom quality compared to many tele-equipped devices. The ultra-wide camera also has room for improvement, though, producing ultra-wide images that are not quite on the same level as most of the Zenfone 8’s segment rivals.

While it’s not the best option for users who like to zoom in or out, the Zenfone 8 does very well in the Video category and its score of 108 puts it among the best picks for mobile photographers in its segment. Keep reading for more details and in-depth comparisons.
