Gadgets: Asus

SIX ZEN. Jumping on the bandwagon of smartphones is Taiwanese computer behemoth Asus. It recently released a line of low-cost Android phones, dubbed Zenfones. Not just one or two, but three different Zenfones based on the inch size immediately hit the market.


The largest of which, the Zenfone 6, is light, easy to navigate, not to mention responsive to stylus and gloved fingers something that iPhone hasn’t gotten a grip on yet. Essentials such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and adequate memory (8GB or 16GB, plus additional memory space with microSD) are onboard. Even the lackluster element like the plastic case is hard to fault, given the soft touch, blunt edges and rounded back that snugs perfectly in the palm. And the pricing point is right on the money.
