ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe is the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer’s flagship in the ZenFone 3 series. Featuring a Snapdragon 820 Processor, an all-metal unibody, and a 23MP rear camera, it is a big step up for the company, demonstrating its efforts to compete against the best that other, more established smartphone brands have to offer.
In particular, ASUS seems to be keen on comparing the ZenFone 3 Deluxe against the iPhone 6S. Side-by-side feature comparisons were made during the Zenvolution product launch, then again at Computex. Better chassis, better screen, better camera – these are just some of the comparisons made between the ZenFone 3 Deluxe and the iPhone 6S.
By going against Apple’s flagship smartphone, ASUS’ message is clear: we have an Android flagship in our hands, and it’s better than the competition.
We were able to go hands-on with an engineering unit at Computex 2016. So far, we were deeply impressed with what we have seen.
