The ZenFone 3 Ultra doesn't share the same design elements on the ZenFone 3 and the ZenFone 3 Deluxe though. However, it has the same rear 23-megapixel camera as the Deluxe.

There's no fingerprint sensor at the back. Instead, the volume controls are located here.

The Ultra was just way too big to fit in my pocket. The iPhone 6S Plus in my pocket looked small in comparison.
