The Asus Zenfone Max ZC550KL – The details

Announced last year and available now, but it’s flown pretty low beneath the radar. Inside there’s a 5000 mAh battery, which makes it deserving of that “Max” name straight away. Big battery, big battery life. Even when used intensively, this puppy is said to last more than a …

ASUS ZenFone Zoom finally launching in February

Last year at CES 2015 Asus announced a new smartphone that will “redefine your expectations of smartphone photography”.

I’ve got to be honest, it’s Monday morning and here in the UK the clocks have gone back so it’ll be getting dark in about 5 hours. Bagghh .. rubbish. It’s that time of year when we’ve got to properly start saving for Christmas, so I’m (as usual) …

CES – Next onto the stage, the ZenFone 2

With a catchy codename of ZE551ML this is perhaps better revealed using a rather beautiful introduction by the ASUS PR department, who tell us.. It’s an engineering marvel in the palm of your hand. The ASUS ZenFone 2 features all-new ergonomic luxe design with graceful curved case, ultra-slim …

CES – ASUS announce Zenfone Zoom

ASUS have just wrapped up their CES event in Las Vegas and one stand-out phone was the Zenfone Zoom. This might actually remind you of the Nokia Lumia 1020 from the back… Who could forget that iconic design? The Zenfone Zoom is focussed (excuse the pun) on the …

Nexus 7 no longer available on UK Play Store
