Asus Zenfone 8 review: Size isn’t everything, and this small phone proves it


Asus isn't targeting the massive flagship phones of this year with the Zenfone 8, but more compact phones like the Google Pixel 5 and iPhone 12 Mini.

Small and lightweight ; Great, but quite simple, camera

Poor battery life ; Screen responsiveness problems ; No wireless charging

Asus Zenfone 8 Review


Hand-friendly size ; Powerful processor ; Excellent onboard audio ; Flagship-quality photos

Lacks wireless charging ; Software updates aren't guaranteed ; Does not work on Verizon's network

With two impressive cameras, a top-notch chipset, and a compact build, the Asus Zenfone 8 is a top choice for small-phone fans.

Asus Zenfone 8 review


The Zenfone 8 is a great smaller-format phone with compromises to drop its cost below competitors, making it a high-value phone packing the essentials.

Top-level specs Small form factor Respectable camera capability

No telephoto lens Middling battery life No wireless charging

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...

Asus Zenfone 8 review: compact and powerful


The Asus Zenfone 8 proves that bigger doesn't always mean better when it comes to performance

Fast performance ; FHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate ; Compact and lightweight

Plain, simple design ; Camera lacks oomph ; No MicroSD card slot

The Asus Zenfone 8 is truly compact and somehow still manages to pack in impressive hardware. It may not look like anything special straight out of the box, but it really does have a stunning display and flagship-level performance.

The Asus ZenFone 8 is an Android iPhone mini


A small phone that makes very few compromises.

Thoughtful compact design ; Robust build quality and IP68 rating ; Excellent Snapdragon 888 performance

Battery life is just okay ; Only two major OS updates ; No telephoto camera

The ZenFone 8 features a design optimized for one-handed use. It offers a 5.9-inch display with a fast 120Hz refresh rate, top-of-the-line Snapdragon 888 processor, and sturdy build quality with an IP68 waterproof rating. It’s a small phone that...

Asus Zenfone 8 review: Hot little number?


A cute little flagship, but not without its flaws. If you're looking for a smaller-scale phone is this the one?

Waterproof ; Stereo speakers and 3.5mm port ; Good camera performance ; Flagship power

Gets hot quickly when gaming ; Fingerprint scanner is temperamental ; No zoom camera

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...

Asus Zenfone 8 review: Android’s answer to the iPhone 12 mini


Asus' Zenfone 8 proves good Android phones can come in small packages

Excellent performance ; Durable and compact design ; Vivid and bright 120Hz display ; Solid photo/video quality ; Affordably priced

5G support is weak ; Poor software update track record ; No telephoto zoom lens

The Asus Zenfone 8 may be the most surprising phone of 2021 with top-of-the-line performance in the smallest Android flagship in years.
