The Galaxy S6 and the Nexus 6P come with AMOLED panels which provide brighter and better saturated colors while offering deeper blacks as well. The IPS panels are known for great color accuracy and the ZenFone Zoom screen appears to be slightly warmer by default. The Zenfone Zoom runs on Android Lollipop-based Zen UI by default. Here is where it gets disappointing.
The phone should have been released with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on-board. On top of that, the device suffers from a lot of bloatware. Thankfully, all the third-party apps that come with the device can be uninstalled but the company apps can only be disabled.
However, the fact that this much of bloatware doesn’t affect the performance of the device should be mentioned. It clearly indicates that the folks back at the company have put in a lot of effort in the development of this device.
In other news, the Asus ZenFone Max is another device to be considered if you are looking for a phone with a big battery but at a budget price. It would have been unbeatable if Asus had packed it with amazing features like Motorola’s Turbocharging. The screen and performance in the Max leaves a lot to be desired. Thankfully, it’s not totally a lost cause.
Stay tuned for more updates on Asus ZenFone!
