The ASUS Zenfone 6 is just plain enjoyable to use [VIDEO]

The ASUS Zenfone 6 has undoubtedly been one of the most surprising devices of 2019 (even if it has issues). To be honest, ASUS phones haven’t been very exciting for a long time, maybe ever. The Zenfone 6 changed that and Pocketnow’s Joshua Vergara recently published a video to talk about how enjoyable the phone is to use.

Joshua talks about how the Zenfone 6 doesn’t follow a lot of the trends we’ve seen recently in smartphones. But that doesn’t harm the experience at all. The flippy camera is a genuine joy to play with and it’s actually pretty decent, though nowhere close to top-of-the-line flagships. The phone is available in more markets now and Joshua says it’s worth looking into if you can get it.
