The ZenFone Zoom has a 3x optical zoom -- but no protruding lens.
The Asus ZenFone Zoom is the Taiwanese company's latest flagship phone. It features an Intel quad-core processor and a 13-megapixel camera with an impressive 3x optical zoom.
The phone will retail for $399 in the US (which converts to about £275 or AU$560, although UK and Australian prices have yet to be announced).
Amazingly, the phone doesn't have a protruding lens barrel, which keeps it relatively slim, though it is still 11.95mm thick.
If you fancy a phone that has features like a compact camera, this could be it.
The phone's stylish metal sides and leather-like rear give the phone a premium feel.
Like the Nokia Lumia 1020, the 13-megapixel rear camera of the ZenFone Zoom really makes an impression.
There are no moving parts when zooming. Believe me, I looked at it for quite a while.
Underneath the rear cover you'll find that the 3,000mAh battery is non-removable.
The 3.5mm audio jack sits at the top, unlike phones such as the Galaxy S6 or the iPhone.
