► Asus Zenfone 5Z – Dual-Camera Smartphone with Gorgeous Display
The entry of Asus Zenfone 5Z in the market has somehow changed how people perceive high-end smartphones. Actually, without question, this is the best smartphone under 30000 rupees. Asus built this bezel-less phone with the hope of beating all the competitions in this price range.
So far, the only smartphone that can challenge the 5Z in this price margin is the VIVO X21 and to some extent the Moto Z2 Force. Nonetheless, for tech pundits like myself, the Asus Zenfone 5Z is still the better option here. Let’s see why this is so:
Top-notch performance: For a start, we tested the performance of this smartphone, and the results were beyond belief. Being the latest smartphone from Asus, the Zenfone 5Z uses a 2.8-GHz Octa-core Snapdragon 845 CPU. Most phones in this price category use 1.8 GHz processors. As if this is not enough, the manufacturer added an astounding 6GB of RAM to this phone as the standard RAM capacity.
However, there is also an 8GB RAM alternative for buyers who want a supercharged experience. Again, most of the phones in this class have 4GB RAM. Additionally, this phone runs a Qualcomm Adreno 630 GPU under its hood meaning that the gaming experience is on another level. In addition, the operating system on this smartphone is Android 8.0 Oreo. The manufacturer also integrated this OS with the new Asus Zen UI 5.
→ Superb Cameras
Just like most smartphones under the 30,000 mark, this top-rated smartphone uses a dual rear camera setup. The primary lens is a 12MP F1.8 dual-pixel image sensor, while the second rear camera is an 8MP F2.2 aperture sensor. Combined, both cameras are able to deliver high definition photos with a superb blur or bokeh effect.
It is also worth noting that this is one of the few smartphones in this price range with an 8MP 120° wide-angle camera. Most of the phones in this class have a 5MP version. The front camera, however, was a bit of a letdown since it’s an 8MP F2.0 camera. Some of the competitions like the Samsung A6 + have a 24MP front selfie camera. Nonetheless, all the cameras on this smartphone have Night HDR support.
4K Video recording: One of the reasons why the Asus Zen 5Z is the best phone under 30k is because it can record videos in 4K resolution. Remarkably, this phone can record UHD videos at 60 frames per second all at a 3840 x 2160px resolution.
Additionally, you can shoot 1080p FHD videos at 30 or 60fps depending on your needs. In point of fact, this phone is more of a DSLR camera than a phone.
→ Other features of Asus Zenfone 5Z
To sum up everything, this phone has a striking design. Aluminum is used to make the body while the screen is made of 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass. Also, all the cameras on this phone are enhanced with AI technology. You won’t also experience any lag with internet connectivity since this dual SIM phone use 4G VoLTE technology.
