BATTERY: Very Good8.4/10

The Asus Zenfone 10 comes with a plastic body and is priced in the upper midrange. It has a 5.92-inch OLED screen with high refresh rates and a resolution offering good screen quality. Its camera setup provides fair video and poor photo quality, which might be a drawback for those who prioritize photography. The phone supports 5G, has a moderate battery life, and is powered by a competent processor with ample RAM, boosting overall performance. Storage space is standard, and it also features a convenient headphone jack and stereo speakers. However, bear in mind the battery capacity isn't the largest and the plastic construction may not feel as premium as other materials. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Performance:
4.8
The Performance rating is based on GeekBench performance benchmark scores, combined with PerfectRec’s assessment of real-life typical use cases.
Battery Life:
4.5
The Battery Life rating is based on overall actual measured battery life during typical usage.
Videos:
3.8
The Asus Zenfone 10 produces fair videos owing to good video stabilization and software, but it is held back by poor performance in dynamic range and low-light conditions. This means while the videos will generally be smooth and the software user-friendly, they might lack detail in high-contrast scenes and appear noisier or less clear in darker settings.
Overall Camera:
3.6
The Asus Zenfone 10 has fair cameras largely because of the modest scores in several key camera-related aspects such as dynamic range, low light performance, and versatility. Moreover, the device's selfie camera quality is rated as fair, reflecting average performance in terms of both camera hardware and software experience.
Photos:
3.2
The Photos rating is based on PerfectRec’s assessment of a variety of factors including resolution, dynamic range, low-light performance, versatility of shooting modes, and selfie quality, as well as software features, photo processing quality, and ease of use.

Tom's Guide

Richard Priday | August 2023
"It's the best small phone for fans of compact handsets, but the Asus Zenfone 10 could pull users away from Samsung and Google flagships with top-quality performance and battery life. If you can forgive its more limited photography options and the shorter-than-average software support window, the Zenfone 10 is a top choice."
