Asus Zenfone 9 review


Compact size, big possibilities - the Zenfone 9's tagline, printed on the very box of the phone, summarizes its priorities neatly. One of the most...

Standout styling, IP68 rating.

No wireless charging.

In the end, the Zenfone 9 presents a compelling compact flagship offering. It would have gotten a raving recommendation if it was priced at €700, and it may eventually get there, but even at MSRP on launch day, we'd say it's well worth it.

Asus Zenfone 9 review: the flagship phone you can use with one hand


The Zenfone 9 is small in size, but it makes a big impact with masses of processing power. If you're tired of massive flagship phones, this could be for you.

Compact and easy to handle Powerful processor Neat, lightweight design Strong audio features Main cameras take good photos

Gimbal disappoints Screen doesn’t get bright enough No wireless charging

“The Asus Zenfone 9 is small enough to be used with one hand, but still has all the power of a massive flagship phone. While this compromises battery life and camera features, it'll be an acceptable trade-off for some.”

Asus Zenfone 9 Asus Zenfone 9 Review - Miniature flagship from Asus


Zenfone 9 puts all the brand-name phones behind it with high-end performance at a premium price. And the camera is awesome.

The second-fastest phone we've tested (second only to Asus' own ROG Phone). Super stable video with gimbal! A find for the price.

No teleoptics. Storage space cannot be expanded with microSD card. No wireless charging.

The Asus Zenfone 9 is a great little phone at a price you can’t help but be excited about. At the time of writing, the Zenfone 9 is faster than any competitor’s handset in virtually every area. That’s probably because Asus is first out with a mobile...

With the Zenfone 9, ASUS has delivered the best small phone money can buy in 2022. The phone has a diminutive chassis that makes it ideal for one-handed use, but it isn't missing out on any features. The Zenfone 9 delivers a well-rounded feature-set in...

Designed for one-handed use ; Incredible performance ; Sublime 120Hz screen ; Vanilla Android UI with zero bloatware ; Great cameras ; IP68 dust and water resistance ; Loud stereo sound, 3.5mm jack ; Battery lasts two days with ease

Only two Android version updates ; No wireless charging

The Zenfone 9 is a small phone with huge potential. The diminutive design makes it ideal for one-handed use, and it has the same caliber of hardware as $1,000 flagships. The 120Hz AMOLED screen is a joy to use, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is the fastest...

Asus Zenfone 9 review: One of the best small phones ever


The Zenfone 9 continues its predecessor's legacy by offering top-of-the-line horsepower in a tiny package. Better yet, this phone outlasts anything in its class, earning a high place on our battery

daily driver, but I’m all here for the hilarity. The fact that the phone itself is awesome is just icing on the cake.

Asus Zenfone 9 Review


Still the best small-sized phone on the market in 2023, the Asus Zenfone 9 delivers excellent performance and highly capable camera hardware.

Small footprint ; Top-tier processor ; Very high quality camera hardware ; Has a headphone jack

The finish does not seem hard-wearing ; Charging is a little slow ; Camera image processing lags behind the best
