The title says it all, the much awaited smartphone with optical zoom is here.
Unlike other smartphones before where the zoom lens results in barrel extension, the ZenFone Zoom does not do so. It remains as slim as it is.
The phone seems to be well received, albeit the rather hefty price tag. Is it worth it? It’s on the high side but what you get is a ZenFone that’s unlike any other because the design and build is much better and it comes with a camera that allows you optical zoom and that adds quite some value when it comes to making it your travel photo equipment.
