The ASUS ZenFone Zoom is one of ASUS’ more interesting smartphones. This handset was announced back in December last year, and had been shown off at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) back in February. The ZenFone Zoom has been available in the US since February for $399, and those of you who are interested in this phone, but were unsure whether to buy it because of its price, well, you’ll be glad to know that it’s currently way cheaper. The ASUS ZenFone Zoom actually costs only $268 on Amazon, which means it is $130 more affordable than it was. Do keep in mind that this is the 64GB storage variant we’re talking about here, as 16GB, 32GB and 128GB models are also available in various regions all over the world. Also, this model of the ZenFone Zoom comes with 4GB of RAM, while 2GB RAM variant is also available out there. The ZenFone Zoom comes in Black, and you do get a US warranty with the phone.
The ASUS ZenFone Zoom features a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) IPS LCD display, along with 4GB of RAM and (in this case) 64GB of expandable internal storage. The phone is fueled by Intel’s Atom Z3580 64-bit quad-core SoC clocked at 2.3GHz, and it actually sports a 3X optical zoom. Speaking of which, you’ll find a 13-megapixel snapper (f/2.7-4.8 aperture, 28-84mm lens, laser autofocus) on the back of this phone, while there’s a 5-megapixel camera available on its front side. The 3,000mAh battery is also a part of this package, and it is not removable, for those of you who are wondering. The device is compatible with GSM networks, including both AT&T and T-Mobile, as well as Straight Talk, Walmart Family Mobile, MetroPCS, Cricket Wireless… and other GSM networks. As far as software goes, this phone comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop with ASUS’ ZenUI on top of it.
Update: As of November 29th, the price of the ZenFone Zoom has dropped to just $249!
