Gadgetren – Today’s average cell phone has a wide body indeed. It’s just that those of us who like compact devices needn’t worry because ASUS has introduced the ASUS Zenfone 10.
The device, which is now only available in the European region, continues the characteristics of the ASUS Zenfone 9 as a small mobile phone. With dimensions of (146.5 x 68.1 x 9.4) mm and weight of 172 grams, this mobile phone will be quite comfortable to use with one hand.
But of course, this small size is not the only advantage of the Zenfone 10. The device also has many other things that make it worthy enough to consider when we need a new phone in 2023.
Advantages of ASUS Zenfone 10
Inside its tiny body, the Zenfone 10, one of them, has capabilities that should not be disputed. The device also comes like today’s flagship with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset as a kitchen runner.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 itself is a high-end chipset that can be chosen when we need a capable device to handle various kinds of needs. Compared to its predecessor, there is an increase of up to 15 percent CPU, 20 percent GPU and 15 percent power efficiency.
Armed with this chipset, the Zenfone 10 can definitely handle a variety of tasks, from light to heavy. ASUS has even combined this with much updated memory support where the RAM uses LPDDR5 and UFS 4.0 storage media.
Moreover, the memory configuration offered by the Zenfone 10 is indeed very large. This device comes with the highest model that comes with a RAM of up to 16GB and an internal storage of up to 512GB.
As an improvement over the previous generation, this flagship device now also features a 15W wireless charger to accompany the 4,300mAh battery and its 30W HyperCharge technology.
Interestingly enough, this ASUS flagship phone is still equipped with a 3.5mm audio jack, which is starting to be abandoned by many devices in its class. We can also listen to music, watch videos or play games using an audio device with a cable connection.
Disadvantages of ASUS Zenfone 10
It is noted that the Zenfone 10 has an AMOLED display with a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz, which can really be an advantage. ASUS simply cut some aspects of the panels it uses for these devices.
ASUS, for example, has not used panels with LPTO (Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide) technology, which has become the new standard for a number of flagship phones. This means that the device does not yet support truly dynamic change of refresh rate settings.
Additionally, the absence of the LPTO panel on the Zenfone 10 will also make the refresh rate range of the device more limited. That’s why this mobile phone doesn’t support settings up to 10Hz or lower to make power consumption even more efficient.
The lack of telephoto support is also a drawback that some may need to look out for before asking for her hand in marriage. The Zenfone 10 in this case carries only two sensors for the main camera which includes a Sony IMX766 with a resolution of 50MP and a wide angle of 13MP.
