Warning, Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra is huge. Not everyone will be able to tame this monster, let alone feel at home using it. But once you managed to get the hang of it, you will begin to appreciate the larger things in life such as this phablet.

Not a smartphone, yet not a tablet. So what do you call this 6.8-inch monster? Whatever it is, the size is intimidating. Imagine you carry it around; it must be a huge task right? Don’t think there’s going to be a jeans or pants that can comfortably put it in your pocket without a noticeable bulge. So you ought to find a clutch bag which can add to your fashion statement even further. Thankfully it has a slim and rather a light body which belies its huge screen.

Let’s find out what else is so special about the Zenfone 3 Ultra:

  • 6.8-inch Full HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 1920 pixels or ~324 ppi pixel density
  • Slim body at just 186.4 x 93.9 x 6.8 mm (7.34 x 3.70 x 0.27 in)
  • Relatively light at 233 g (8.22 oz)
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 4
  • Qualcomm MSM8976 Snapdragon 652 chipset, Quad-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A72 & Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53, Adreno 510 graphics and 3GB/4GB RAM
  • 23MP primary camera with f/2.0, laser/phase detection autofocus, OIS (4-axis), dual-LED (dual tone) flash
  • 8MP secondary camera with f/2.0
  • 32GB/64GB/128GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to 256MB maximum
  • Android Marshmallow 6.0
  • Non-removable Li-Ion 4600 mAh battery with Fast battery charging: 60% in 45 minutes (Quick Charge 3.0)
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE

You might think that a big-sized phablet at most has just some mid-range specs to it, but not with Zenfone 3 Ultra. The slim size and rather lightweight is a blessing as it does help in managing the phablet better with both hands.

The fingerprint sensor and Gorilla Glass 4 is pretty useful to have on the Zenfone 3 Ultra as well. As for the hardware, you expect it to be able to run almost everything that you throw at if just fine.

But the best part that you will love about the Zenfone 3 Ultra is the fact that it comes with an awesome 23MP primary camera. Packed with awesome features, the camera is one of the best available out there for a smartphone camera. You will be snapping away most of the time as you want to capture all the best moments in your life.

Then comes the restriction about how much space you have. With a photo that is almost 20MB in size for that high of a resolution, you would want to be assured of sufficient storage space to keep you going. This is where you can choose either to have 32GB, 64GB or 128GB and if that’s not enough – go ahead to add in an additional 256GB via the microSD slot.

Last but not least, the 4600 mAh battery which comes with Fast battery charging will ensure very minimal downtime where you need to plug in the phablet to a power source.


Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra is not your everyday phablet. With an awesome slim body, great hardware, awesome camera, and battery – this combination makes for a might device. Although phablet and tablet sales are declining, if you have the money to spend; then go for it.

Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra had just been release and is currently available for $479 USD. It is available in
Glacier Silver, Titanium Gray, and Metallic Pink.
