The phone felt great on hand but being a 6 inch device it could prove to be a daunting task when one is with small hands.
The phone worked great in performance, having no problems at all when it comes to running games and other applications.
Battery life seems great, drawing only 7% after 10 games of Bejeweled Blitz. It has a 3300mAh battery but the larger screen tends to draw quite some battery juice.
The phone is loud when it comes to audio output but the sound quality is mediocre at best, with the quality being quite hollow for the most part and the speaker does rattle a bit once the output tries to hit the bass tones. The speaker placement is such that fingers are not likely to block it but being of a single speaker setup, the audio output is lobsided when on landscape mode.
The keyboard worked great and I didn’t find it sluggish at all, on the downside is that there doesn’t seem to be an option for me to SELECT ALL, COPY and PASTE text when on Facebook.
Call quality wise the Zenfone 6 performs admirably, the phone picks up and output voice with no issues. The rear placement of the speaker meant the speaker mode might seem a bit soft when in noisy environment (eg driving). The phone also seems to be quite weak when it comes to detecting WiFi signals compared to my other devices, often unable to reach the WiFi base once there’s distance or hindrance.
The key highlight of the Zenfone 6 is the Zen UI of which I will let the video explain.

Starting off is the Antutu Benchmark that shows a surprisingly low score for the Zenfone 6.

That aside, let’s not forget about 3D Mark.
Numbers aside, my experience with the Zenfone 6 is pretty good.
