Reviews for the Asus ZenFone 8

85.6% Asus ZenFone 8 smartphone in review: Compact and powerful | Notebookcheck
Asus already shows on paper that a powerful configuration can also be packed into a small smartphone with the Zenfone 8. We will find out what it is capable of in the end in our review.
71% ZenFone 8 review: Asus' small but mighty phone hits the mark
Source: CNet English EN→zh-CN
Asus is betting a small phone will make a big impact. It bills its new midrange ZenFone 8 as the "ultimate compact Android phone." The ZenFone 8 has a crisp 5.9-inch AMOLED display, respectable battery life, dependable cameras, stereo speakers, and powerful internals that by some measures rivals the $1,200 Galaxy S21 Ultra's performance. All this is crammed into a lightweight and slender chassis, making it one of the most compact 5G phones around.

A Phone Camera To Flip For: ASUS Zenfone 8 / 8 Flip Review
Source: MrMobile English
If you’re looking for something a little different when it comes to your laptops and smartphones, ASUS has gotta be one of your go-tos. Using the company’s dual-screen laptops over the past couple years has changed what I expect from a mobile computer … and the latest ROG Phone is so well-equipped, it tempted even a non-gamer like myself. Compared to those envelope-pushers, ASUS’s two new Zenfones are far tamer offerings. That’s because they’re trying to appeal to a more mainstream audience, while still offering features other manufacturers have mostly written off. The question is whether either one goes far enough.

The Zenfone 8 looks promising, but pricing will play the biggest role in determining our recommendation. At $599, it's a pretty good deal; at $799, not so much. Carrier support is also something to take into consideration, and we want to see if Asus makes a commitment to multi-year OS updates. We'll be tracking the release of the Zenfone 8 here, so check back soon for more details and a full review when the phone becomes available. In the meantime, our pick for the best small phone remains the iPhone 12 mini.

80% Asus Zenfone 8 review: Hot little number?
Source: Pocket Lint English EN→zh-CN
There's a lot to like about this compact phone - which will suit many looking for a smaller flagship. There's a great display, quality build, and good cameras. But it heats up quickly under load so it's not for gamers, while the fingerprint scanner is irritating in use.

Hands on: Asus Zenfone 8 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English EN→zh-CN
By not following the blueprint of pretty much every other Android phone, Asus has found a niche for the Zenfone 8. If you’re after an iPhone 12-sized Android phone with top-tier specs then this device is shaping up to be an excellent option.

Source: Android Central English EN→zh-CN
ASUS's first shot at a compact Android flagship is one of the best small, high-end phones you can buy. Between its fast performance, two capable cameras, and a pocket-friendly form factor, this is a fantastic overall package. But you may be waiting longer for Android OS updates, and there's no wireless charging.

90% Asus Zenfone 8 review
Source: Techradar English EN→zh-CN
The Asus Zenfone 8 is a solid flagship phone at a sub-flagship price, though inevitably there are compromises: there’s no telephoto lens or wireless charging, and it misses out on its predecessor’s novel flip camera that let the rear lenses rotate forward to take selfie shots. You can still get that camera in the limited-release Asus Zenfone 8 Flip, but the regular Zenfone 8 delivers top-tier specs at the most affordable price since the OnePlus 6T.

80% Asus Zenfone 8 review: Android’s answer to the iPhone 12 mini
Source: Laptop Mag English EN→zh-CN
While I’m sure Asus would be happy to own this market by itself, I hope this portends more small(ish) Android flagships. I love using the gigantic Galaxy S21 Ultra, but the Zenfone 8 proves that there is no reason why you need to sacrifice performance for a more compact design. The Asus Zenfone 8 has earned itself a place among the best smartphones available today.

90% Asus Zenfone 8 review: The best small Android phone, hands-down
Source: Tom's Guide English EN→zh-CN
The Asus Zenfone 8 is a great phone, though its availability might leave some confused. But the hardware is excellent, the software is great, and the cameras perform way better than expected (especially after the extreme disappointment I had with the ROG Phone 5’s cameras). You’re getting a ton of phone with the Zenfone 8 and it’s definitely the best small Android phone, handily beating the Pixel 5 in every way except camera performance.

The Asus Zenfone 8 is a rare occurrence. It's a unique phone with a niche of its own, but this wasn't enough for Asus. They've built an enthusiast's smartphone with brilliant execution and a laundry list of features you rarely see all in one place, not even in larger devices. Much like with its ROG Phone lineup of gaming phones, the Zenfone 8 is a non-compromise device built from the ground up to excel in all important aspects of smartphone operation.

The ASUS Zenfone 8 Hands-On Review: A New Compact Direction
Source: AnandTech English EN→zh-CN
Finally, there’s the continued issue of availability and limited releases depending on country and markets. I had asked ASUS about their recent track-record of having extremely slow roll-outs, with users sometimes waiting months to be able to purchase the phones in their specific region or country. Similarly, the Zenfone 8 series don’t have any concrete sell date or more specific pricing beyond the European start prices showcased in the above slide. ASUS had replied that they’re aiming to do better this year, but again shying away from disclosing any more concrete per-country availability information.

大尺寸可以让屏幕有更高的分辨率。因而例如字体等的细节将会更丰富。不过另一方面,小屏幕的功耗会较低,而设备也会更轻盈小巧,售价更低。
