Should You Buy?

Overall, the Asus Zenfone 5Z is a very powerful and premium smartphone. It has got pretty much everything right, be it the design, display, performance, cameras, software, battery or features, the Zenfone 5Z is good with everything. It comes at a great price point and delivers excellent value for money. However, the Zenfone 5Z finds itself sandwiched between the ultra cost effective Poco F1 and a more premium OnePlus 6, both of which are better in their own way. So, the Zenfone 5Z can only be a good choice if you are looking towards a more premium design than the Poco F1 but can’t afford the OnePlus 6!
