Quick Review of Asus Zenfone 3 Laser

Display is high quality because of the full HD resolution. It also got the protective shield from Corning Gorilla Glass. The CPU Snapdragon 430 chipset is not a great performing CPU. It is only a moderately performing processor.

When coming to RAM, the option of 2GB and 4GB of RAM, push the buyers to go with 4GB. Because, 2GB RAM is not enough for most of the users. Cameras are good with usual Specs of 13MP and 8MP. The front camera in most of the mid-level smartphones is only having 5MP. Here, it is 8MP, which adds advantage. A 3000mAh battery is average level now-a-days.

Overall, the hardware is average in performance but has good specs in terms of features such as cameras, display quality etc.
