Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra

The newly introduced Asus Zenfone 3rio sure has a lot of people hyped on the device. However, the Zenfone 3 Ultra is probably the most negatively accepted amongst the three. People suggests that the Zenfone 3 Ultra’s screen size is way too big and couldn’t potentially heavily decrease its handling efficiency. Nevertheless, when it comes to specs, the Zenfone 3 Ultra surely does not lack in any way possible.

The highlight of the Zenfone 3 Ultra lies not only on its screen size but its massive 23MP/8MP camera pairing, equipped with OIS, EIS, phase detection and laser autofocus. Adding up to the mix is a Snapdragon 652 chip that should deliver. The Zenfone 3 Ultra seems to be a capable shooter indeed and it seems that it’ll be a capable phone overall, despite the huge screen size. Right now, the Zenfone 3 Ultra should be priced at Php 25K once it reaches the PH market.
