Well, I am someone who is a gadget geek. I need big screens for playing games and watching movies. And when AsusZenfone 6 was in my hand, I totally felt – “this is what I was looking for”.
Available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB versions, I chose to buy 16GB version considering my need. With relatively low resolution the phone still performs decent. I am amazed with the battery life. I usually travel long distance and to top it I am more on my phone during journeys. Hence, it has been serving my purpose of long usage. The battery life is fabulous.
Because of the giant screen and awesome finish one would feel that you are carrying a premium phone. I would rather call it a neat finish metal look. Indeed, the features that you get in the eye boggling price, you would actually feel it is a good buy.
To some it may not suit their eyes because of the large screen. So if you are comfortable carrying a 6 inches phone, just go for it. I personally have a tablet which I have not used since the time I bought this phone. So if you are someone looking to buy a phone and a tablet, go buy this one device.
