Asus ZenFone 5z powered by an year old Snapdragon 845 SoC and running Android Pie is a beautiful and a perfectly capable smartphone which can do all the day-to-day tasks with ease along with some serious gaming and great multimedia features. The handset has fairly good optics too. The handset is Flipkart exclusive and priced at ₹24,999 currently. It’s a good value for money with a very good design (although little dated in the time of full screen displays) and premium materials.
