Asus Zenfone 8 review: Size isn’t everything, and this small phone proves it


Asus isn't targeting the massive flagship phones of this year with the Zenfone 8, but more compact phones like the Google Pixel 5 and iPhone 12 Mini.

Small and lightweight ; Great, but quite simple, camera

Poor battery life ; Screen responsiveness problems ; No wireless charging

Asus Zenfone 8 review


The Asus Zenfone 8 series is now official, and one thing that might have come as a surprise - there is no Zenfone 8 mini. It's because the Zenfone 8...

Compact and lightweight body, IP68-rated, GG Victus, notification LED.

The dynamic refresh rate behavior can use some optimization.

The Zenfone 8 is an impressive little beast. It lived up to every single promise. And with a starting price of €599, it sounds like a real bargain. We rarely get to review devices that good, and it's one of the easiest recommendations of the season.

Asus Zenfone 8 Review


Hand-friendly size ; Powerful processor ; Excellent onboard audio ; Flagship-quality photos

Lacks wireless charging ; Software updates aren't guaranteed ; Does not work on Verizon's network

With two impressive cameras, a top-notch chipset, and a compact build, the Asus Zenfone 8 is a top choice for small-phone fans.

The Asus ZenFone 8 is an Android iPhone mini


A small phone that makes very few compromises.

Asus Zenfone 8 review: Android’s answer to the iPhone 12 mini


Asus' Zenfone 8 proves good Android phones can come in small packages

Excellent performance ; Durable and compact design ; Vivid and bright 120Hz display ; Solid photo/video quality ; Affordably priced

5G support is weak ; Poor software update track record ; No telephoto zoom lens

The Asus Zenfone 8 may be the most surprising phone of 2021 with top-of-the-line performance in the smallest Android flagship in years.

Asus Zenfone 8 review: Just the right size


The Zenfone 8 is just the right size - it nails it perfectly. It's not as small as an iPhone 12 mini, which some people find too small, and yet the phone is significantly more compact than your average modern flagship.

Compact and easy to handle ; Top-level performance ; Great display ; Cameras are pretty good ; Good battery life, especially for the size ; Stereo speakers, 3.5mm audio jack, hi-res audio support ; Clean and feature-rich UI ; Competitive price tag ;...

Gets hot in high-demanding situations ; No wireless charging ; No SD card slot ; The small size might be a con for some people
