Asus launches Zenfone 5Z in India with Snapdragon 845 which goes into direct competition with Oneplus 6. Asus Zenfone 5Z has 6.2 inches IPS screen 19:9 aspect ratio, dual camera setup, 3300 mah battery, 8 GB Ram 256 GB Storage etc and similar features are in Oneplus 6 like the same soc snapdragon 845, 3300 mah battery, 8 GB Ram, dual cameras etc. Let’s compare them side by side with common points between both of them.
Asus Zenfone has the traditional Asus design which shines from the back made up of aluminum glass and it looks quite fabulous but when it comes to competition oneplus 6 design is on a little upper side made up of glass but looks fantastic and premium. In the front there is a notch on both the devices but oneplus 6 notch is little smaller and does not cover a lot when hidden but asus’s notch doesn’t look so good in front of oneplus 6 and also both have chin at the bottom. So in terms of design oneplus 6 is on the better side.
Asus Zenfone 5Z has a 6.2 inches Super IPS Display whereas the oneplus 6 has 6.28 inches full HD+ AMOLED Display with 19:9 aspect ratio being same for both the devices. Both the devices have Iphone X style notch on top and chin at the bottom. Here oneplus 6 has better display and colors are more vibrant also OP 6 has Gorilla Glass 5 protection whereas there is no specific information about the 5Z. Here also OP 6 wins the game.
Oneplus 6 and Zenfone 5Z have similar kind of Vertical Dual Camera setup in rear but there are a lot of differences. Oneplus 6 has 20 Megapixel primary camera and 16 Megapixel secondary whereas the zenfone 5Z has 12 Megapixel primary camera and 8 Megapixel secondary camera. Game is not about the numbers but in actual performance asus zenfone 5z fails in front of Oneplus 6. White balance and aperture size play a great role in camera performance. Also in the front oneplus 6 has 16 Megapixel Camera and Zenfone 5Z has 8 Megapixel camera but actually you can feel the difference in front camera just by seeing the picture quality. Here also Oneplus is few steps ahead of asus.
Both the devices have a similar size 3300 mah battery which will drain within a day but both of them come up with fast charging technology. One side asus gives you an 18w charger with Quick charge 3.0 and oneplus gives you its Dash Charge technology which charges your phone to 70% in 30 minutes which is pretty impressive. Even Quick Charge 3.0 does not give you. It’s a balanced deal in both the devices.
Both devices come up with android oreo 8.0 and with an update of android P but they have differences as asus uses custom Rom ZenUI whereas the oneplus uses stock android based OxygenOS. For a flagship device it has to be stock android but asus does not give you that. Here again oneplus 6 beats asus zenfone 5z with the stock android.
Asus Zenfone 5Z has 3 variants of 6 GB Ram 64 GB Storage, 6 GB Ram 128 GB Storage and 8 GB Ram 256 GB Storage priced at Rs 29999, Rs 32999 and Rs 36999 respectively. Oneplus 6 is priced a bit higher at Rs 34999 for 6 GB Ram & 64 GB Storage and Rs 39999 for 8 GB Ram & 128 GB Storage. Here you have to pay Rs 5000 more to get the base variant of oneplus 6. In terms of pricing we can say asus is a bit ahead.
Both the devices have the same Soc by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 paired with adreno 630 GPU but there could be difference in performance due to software optimization. Oneplus software optimization is too good with Ram management, camera performance, security updates but you cannot ignore the software part of asus. Here both the devices give you a balanced deal.
Both the devices have super fast fingerprint sensor but that’s not the part we are talking about. We are discussing the face unlock feature. Both have software based face unlock and you already know how fast face unlock is in oneplus 6. In terms of speed of face unlock oneplus 6 gives you a better deal.
Both the devices are direct competition to each other but they also have more competition in the market. Honor 10 is a direct competition for both the devices priced at Rs 33000. Honor 10 has a beautiful design and kirin 970 chipset. Camera performance and battery back is great in honor 10. There are others like Mi 8, Vivo X21 for both of them to compete.
So oneplus 6 and Asus Zenfone 5Z have lots of differences and similarities between them but ultimately they are competing against each other and as a buyer if you decide to spend your money on either of them you have to consider these factors. You get a beautiful design, a decent camera, a powerful processor at an affordable price in asus zenfone 5z but if you spend Rs 5000 more you get a better design a better camera and of course the same hardware. Wrapping up buy asus zenfone 5Z at Rs 30000 to own a good phone but spend 5000 more to have a great phone.
