Asus ZenFone 5Z vs Honor 10 vs Nokia 7 Plus: Honor and Nokia should be very nervous
Asus has been on a sort of roll lately, especially in India.
After launching a pretty stellar ZenFone Max Pro M1 to take on affordable phones the Redmi Note 5 Pro, the company is quickly back with a brand new smartphone, this time taking on affordable flagships the OnePlus 6 and Honor 10.
The Asus ZenFone 5Z was launched in India boasting of flagship specs at a price that puts even the OnePlus 6 to shame. Starting at Rs 29,999, the Asus flagship is the cheapest phone to sport a Snapdragon 845 chipset in the country.
The phone obviously directly competes against the OnePlus 6, a comparison on that will follow shortly. However, the ZenFone 5Z's middle 6GB + 128GB variant also competes against the Honor 10, which is priced at Rs 32,999.
The Nokia 7 Plus, on the other hand, may not be a flagship, but it has been a pretty attractive option in the sub-Rs. 30,000 for a few reasons.
The Nokia phone is cheaper at Rs 25,999, but here's where things get interesting – the ZenFone 5Z can also be purchased for as low as Rs 26,999 thanks to a flat Rs 3,000 off via ICICI Bank debit and credit card. This gives HMD Global reasons to worry about the Nokia 7 Plus as well.
Here's what Asus ZenFone 5Z brings to the sub-Rs 30,000 segment
So far, OnePlus has enjoyed the title of being a flagship killer because the company has brought phones that boast flagship specs at an affordable price. But the ZenFone 5Z changes things.
Asus' flagship brings a premium design with glass on the front and the back and a metal frame in between. Completing the premium design is a tall 6.2-inch FHD+ display with a notch cut out and a 19:9 aspect ratio.
Talking about the hardware, the ZenFone 5Z is powered by a flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset and the base variant comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
The ZenFone 5Z houses a 3,300mAh battery with fast charging support, supports stereo speakers and High-Res audio, among other things. The dual camera setup includes a primary 12-megapixel sensor with large 1.4um pixels, f/1.
8 aperture, dual-pixel phase detection autofocus, four-axis OIS and EIS. The secondary camera comes with an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor for depth of field shots.
Up front, the ZenFone 5Z sports an 8-megapixel sensor and the camera also supports Face Unlock and what Asus calls ZeniMoji, which is a take on Apple's Animoji feature.
Apart from some powerful hardware, the ZenFone 5Z also highlights a smart AI-based software. The phone runs Android Oreo-based ZenUI and Asus says it has cut down on a lot of bloatware, keeping things cleaner and simpler.Notably, the phone also comes with a lot of AI smarts. The ZenFone 5Z uses AI and machine learning to identify 16 different scenes and objects and adjust the camera settings accordingly to best capture the image.
Asus also uses AI when it comes to charging the phones.
Will Honor 10 be able to stave off the ZenFone 5Z
Honor played its cards right when it launched the Honor 10 in India at Rs 32,999, a price tag that was previously associated with the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T.
Honor was perhaps aware that OnePlus would launch the OnePlus 6 a couple of notches higher.
The Honor 10 justifies its price tag by not only bringing a stunning design that includes an all-glass design with an aurora colour scheme on the back and an edge-to-edge 5.84-inch Full-HD+ IPS LCD notched display up front.
Apart from the looks, the Honor 10 also brags about some serious hardware that includes an AI-based Kirin 970 processor coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The phone holds a 3,400mAh battery and Android 8.
1 Oreo-based EMUI 8.1.
The Honor 10 also brings some impressive cameras that include a dual rear camera system that comprises of one 16-megapixel colour or RGB sensor and another 24-megapixel monochrome sensor, and a 24-megapixel camera up front.
The Honor 10 is arguably more visually appealing than the Asus ZenFone 5Z. The cameras are perhaps at par with what Asus' flagship offers, although the Honor 10's selfie camera will be hard to beat.
Both the phones rely heavily on AI when it comes to recognising scenes and capturing that ideal photo. In fact, the ZenFone 5Z may have a bit on advantage thanks to its wide-angle lens.As for the performance, a Snapdragon 845 chipset will be faster compared to the Kirin 970 and the ZenFone 5Z gets an advantage there as well.
ZenFone 5Z has the potential to rattle the segment and make Honor and Nokia sweat quite a bit
But perhaps the biggest deciding factor will be the software. The Honor 10 has a pretty cluttered EMUI OS that takes a little getting used to. It is also filled with bloatware that can weigh down on the phone after a while. The ZenFone 5Z also has a skin on top, but Asus has made its ZenUI simpler, cleaner with fewer pre-loaded apps, and this should see a few takers.
Nokia 7 Plus has one big advantage
You might think it's a little unfair comparing the Nokia 7 Plus with the ZenFone 5Z. The Nokia 7 Plus runs on a mid-range chipset and not Snapdragon 845.
But one will inevitably have to compare the two considering the ZenFone 5Z can be purchased for as low as Rs 26,999 after a flat Rs 3,000 discount offered via ICICI Bank debit and credit card.
This makes the ZenFone 5Z even more attractive than before ad challenges HMD's mid-range handset that is found for Rs 25,999.
The Nokia 7 Plus may not come with a glass design, but the phone looks quite premium being machined a single block of Series 6000 aluminium and getting a ceramic coating on the back with copper accents all around. Beyond the design, however, the Nokia 7 Plus has one really big advantage over the ZenFone 5Z – stock Android.
ALSO READ: Asus ZenFone 5Z is cheapest phone in India with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 but software is its main USP
The Nokia 7 Plus is perhaps the only phone in this segment that comes with pure, stock Android.
It is also the only phone right now that's part of the Android One program, which means the phone will get regular Android security updates and a guarantee of Android P and Q in the future. The same cannot be said about the ZenFone 5Z and Honor 10.
As a pure Android phone, it doesn't get better than the Nokia 7 Plus. In fact, thanks to a well optimised software, the Nokia 7 Plus manages to perform well with a Snapdragon 660 chipset.Overall, I would say that the ZenFone 5Z has the potential to rattle the segment and make Honor and Nokia sweat quite a bit.
Both the Honor 10 and Nokia 7 Plus are admirable phones that look great and perform really well, but the ZenFone 5Z sits in a position where it is able to attack both of them on either direction.
It offers an all-round flagship package at a price point that is absolutely stellar. But we'll know just how good the ZenFone 5Z really is in our detailed review so stay tuned for that.
Голосуй за лучший смартфон года! ZenFone 5 против Honor 8X – Технологии Onliner
«Это кнопка не за „Самсунг“, а против „айфона“», — гласит самый популярный к предыдущей алке. Граждане и правда в едином порыве «слили» iPhone Xs и продвинули в полуфинал Galaxy Note 9.
Сегодня же столкнем лбами два недорогих, но примечательных смартфона. Настало время сражения за место в полуфинале между ASUS ZenFone 5 и Honor 8X.
В свое время оба аппарата оставили крайне положительные впечатления. Но кто же лучший?
О системе отбора и размещения смартфонов в турнирной таблице мы подробно писали в прошлый раз. Кратко о самом главном: по вторникам за звание лучшего из лучших сражаются флагманские телефоны, по пятницам — недорогие, но показавшиеся нам значимыми аппараты.
Кстати о наших сегодняшних героях. Сначала вспомним, чем нам приглянулся продукт тайваньской компании.
ASUS ZenFone 5
Во-первых, внешний вид. «Зен» моментально вызывает ассоциации с куда более дорогим iPhone X. Многие сразу принимают его за детище «яблочной» компании. Даже включив дисплей! Лишь пару секунд спустя самые глазастые замечают нехарактерную для «айфонов» широкую рамку внизу. Да и «монобровь» поменьше, чем у образца для подражания.
Чем дольше держишь ZenFone 5 в руках, тем скорее понимаешь – не iPhone. Фактура не та, стекло спереди и сзади чересчур выступает над рамкой. Ну, оно и понятно, все же ценовые категории совсем разные.
6,2-дюймовый дисплей сделан по технологии IPS, а не более дорогой и модной OLED. На самом деле к экрану не придерешься. Здесь и разрешение, достаточное чтобы не увидеть отдельных пикселей, и поддержка работы в перчатках, и высокая яркость, и сочная картинка. Отличная матрица!
А еще ZenFone 5 может похвастаться стереодинамиками. За низкие частоты отвечает громкоговоритель внизу, телефонный динамик специализируется на средних и высоких частотах. На максимальной громкости все дребезжит, но если подойти к вопросу без фанатизма, слышится смартфон достойно. В наушниках все и того лучше.
Начинка не топовая, но смартфон, напоминаем, не флагманский. Snapdragon 636 с 4 ГБ оперативной памяти достаточно для того, чтобы не чувствовать себя обладателем ущербного бюджетника со сплошными тормозами вместо резвого «акселератора». Вот бы еще фирменный интерфейс подкрутили, который время от времени «лагает».
Во время обзора ZenFone 5 понравился нам главным образом благодаря камере. 12-мегапиксельный (f/1.8) сенсор IMX363 и 8-мегапиксельный (широкоугольный, f/2.0) с помощью искусственного интеллекта и оптической стабилизации способны выдавать шикарные фото. Конечно, с учетом цены и условий, в которых ведется съемка.
Летом во время обзора смартфон стоил около 1000 рублей, что показалось нам чересчур много. К сегодняшнему дню цена снизилась на 200 рублей и модель стала выглядеть интереснее. Но достаточно ли этого для того, чтобы называться лучшим?
Это более свежий аппарат, который появился в Беларуси около полутора месяцев назад. Аппарат вышел примечательный, а потому без него в нашей мегабитве смартфонов никак не обойтись.
В отличие от соперника, Honor 8X совсем не похож на iPhone. Но это не означает, что дизайн у телефона простенький и невзрачный. Как раз наоборот! Все, кому мы показывали Honor 8X в красном цвете, как минимум отметили необычность оформления.
Переливающиеся под разным углом оттенки смотрятся актуально. Также взгляд цепляется за прямоугольник, как бы отделенный от остальной части крышки. На фоне смартфонной серости такое оформление воспринимается как ясный солнечный день среди пасмурной слякотной осени.
Особенно хороши красный и синий цвета.Гигантский 6,5-дюймовый дисплей занимает больше 90% фронтальной поверхности Honor 8X. Панель, как и в случае с ZenFone 5, выполнена по технологии IPS.
Опять-таки, матрица качественная, ничем не хуже той, что установлена в аппарате от ASUS. Но надо учитывать размеры — 8X получил огромный экран и, следовательно, обладает более крупными размерами.
У конкурента дисплей существенно меньше, но и сам телефон компактнее.
Динамик здесь монофонический, но приличного качества. Камер две, но в компоновке 20+2 Мп. Второй сенсор нужен для «замыливания» фона при портретной съемке. Есть искусственный интеллект, а вот оптической стабилизации нет. Снимки для этой ценовой категории неплохие, но не более того.
Процессор установлен собственной разработки. Судя по всему, производительность Kirin 710 находится примерно на уровне Snapdragon 636. Так что и здесь паритет с ZenFone 5. А вот батарея держит лучше. Если для смартфона от ASUS одной зарядки хватало чуть больше, чем на сутки, то Honor 8X у нас стабильно выдерживал два дня.
К преимуществам 8X также отнесем наличие слотов для двух SIM-карт и карты памяти. А вот за наличие устаревшего во всех смыслах порта microUSB вместо Type-C обидно. Кроме того, хотелось бы быструю зарядку и оптическую стабилизацию. На эти претензии производитель отвечает стоимостью — цены на Honor 8X стартуют от 550 рублей.
Так какой же из этих двух смартфонов лучший? Время выбирать.
Asus Zenfone 5Z vs Honor 10: The Battle of Budget Flagship Smartphones
The Asus Zenfone 5Z was officially unveiled quite recently and we have been quite impressed with it so far. In a time where manufacturers are gunning for the top spot of the flagship killer race, the Zenfone 5Z positions itself as a worthy contender.
its pricing, the phone ends up being a direct competitor to the Honor 10 (review) which happened to be another affordably priced, flagship class smartphone. Both phones offer top-of-the-line specs and performance, and one might be hard-pressed when deciding to choose between the two.
We will make the decision easier for you be pitting these phones against each other to see which emerges victorious.
Asus Zenfone 5Z vs Honor 10: Price in India, Storage Options
In India, the Honor 10 is only offered in one storage configuration with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage space that retails for Rs. 32,999. This phone does not provide support for further storage expandability.
The Zenfone 5Z, on the other hand, will release in three storage configurations and all of them can support microSD card expansion up to 512GB.
The base variant comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage with a price tag of Rs. 29,999. The next storage variant is priced at Rs. 32,999 which is the same as the Honor 10, but it offers 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage.
The top-end variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory will cost you Rs. 36,999.
Asus Zenfone 5Z vs Honor 10: Design, Display
Both phones offer premium glass + metal unibody constructions that are a pleasure to hold.
Side by side, the Honor 10 looks better because of its unique colour profile that has an exceptional pop when looked at from different angles.Both phones do get fingerprint scanners but the Zenfone 5Z’s is at the back, while the Honor 10’s scanner blends seamlessly beneath the front glass below the display.
Both smartphones also boast notched, IPS LCD screens. The Zenfone 5Z’s display measures 6.2-inches and has a 1080 x 2246 resolution with an 18.7:9 aspect ratio, 402ppi density, and an 83.6% screen-to-body ratio. On the other hand, the Honor 10’s screen measures 5.84 inches and has a 1080 x 2280 resolution, 19:9 aspect ratio, 432ppi density, and a 79.9% screen-to-body ratio.
Asus Zenfone 5Z vs Honor 10: Performance, Software
Powering the Zenfone 5Z is a quad-core Snapdragon 845 chipset with highest CPU clock speeds at 2.7Ghz. The Honor 10 is powered by the Hisilicon Kirin 970 chipset which has its CPU’s highest clock speeds at 2.4Ghz. While synthetic benchmarks may have some ups and downs, the real-world performance difference of these two flagship SoCs is barely discernable.
The main difference comes with how their software works with this CPU. Both phones run Android Oreo out-of-the-box, but the Zenfone 5Z comes with Asus’ ZenUI 5.0 while the Honor 10 has its EMUI 8.1. EMUI has a much better look and feel, with loads of customisation options. ZenUI has fewer customizations and suffers from a lack of optimisation.
Asus Zenfone 5Z vs Honor 10: Audio
This is one category worth taking a look at since Asus has invested quite a bit on the audio capabilities of the Zenfone 5Z.
Audiophiles will have a blast thanks to the phone’s dual NXP amplifiers and the fact that the it is a DTS Headphones X certified device.
Not only does the phone have dual loudspeakers, but it also offers custom presets for close to a hundred headphones and earphones from all major brands for an optimum audio experience.
While there isn’t anything wrong with the single speaker and standard 3.5mm headphone jack of the Honor 10, the Zenfone 5Z is leagues ahead of anyone at this price range.
Asus Zenfone 5Z vs Honor 10: Camera
The camera is a department where the Honor attempts to get the lead back from Asus. The Zenfone 5Z offers a decent package with its 12MP+8MP camera setup at the back and an 8MP sensor at the front for selfies. However, the Honor 10 offers a better proposition with its 16MP+24MP rear camera configuration and 24MP selfie shooter at the front.
Asus Zenfone 5Z vs Honor 10: Battery
Battery life on the two phones is pretty comparable. The Zenfone 5Z comes with a 3300mAH battery while the Honor 10 sports a 3400mAH cell. Both have their own versions of fast charging and should provide similar overall backups.
Asus Zenfone 5Z vs Honor 10: Verdict
This was one of the tightest races we have seen with smartphones of such calibre. Both phones have respectable builds with the Zenfone 5Z having a larger screen-to-body ratio display while the Honor 10 has better looks and marginally better display pixel density.
Battery and performance were the same but the Honor 10 leads in software optimisations and features. The Zenfone 5Z, on the other hand, offers better value for money with its larger storage capacities and further expandability options. The main deciding factor comes down to the audio and camera capabilities.
Audio lovers will be absolutely blown away with the Zenfone 5Z while photography enthusiasts should stick with the Honor 10.
Asus Zenfone 5Z vs Honor 10 : Complete Comparison of Two Great Phones
Updated on 2018-07-04 by Tejas Upmanyu
It is the time of the mid-rangers. As people start seeing the value mid-range smartphones have to offer, the category has been bursting onto the scene, with more and more smartphones with better and more complete set of features to woo the customers.
Here we have compared two of these amazing mid-range devices which give a hard knock on the grounds of ‘value for money’ and stack up against the s of much loved OnePlus flagships. As the number of solid choices increases, so does the confusion concerning which is better than other – we’ve got you covered.
In this article, we bring you the comparison of Asus Zenfone 5z vs Honor 10.
1. Design & Build
Both the smartphones, being confident mid-rangers come from the same school of marketing strategy which seeks to levy the iconic iPhone X notch, with minimal side bezels and a polished metal body draped by solid glass on both sides, this is the story of almost every high-end/mid-range smartphone launched in 2018, and both Asus Zenfone 5Z, Honor 10 fit right in.
That doesn’t take away the fact that both of these smartphones are hilariously gorgeous. You can keep staring at them, as long as you want.
Starting with Zenfone 5Z, the smartphone has a polished, chamfered metal finish with glass on both sides. The smartphone looks a lot on the premium end and weighing in at 155grams, It is quite comfortable to hold as well. At front fascia, there’s almost nothing but a display with the exception of a well-cut notch.Honor 10 has a new trend in design, much Huawei’s P20 Pro, the ‘Phantom Blue’ model comes with a rear which has a gradual gradient from aqua to purple, which looks refreshing and stunning. Weighing at 153 grams, the smartphone is quite nice to hold in hand.
Both the smartphones speak highly of premier design and build quality but are also prone to fingerprints and smudges and of course, at the end of It – It is glass and It breaks.
So, we don’t vouch for durability here, If kept well, these smartphones are built well and will age gracefully.
In the design front, we’ll give Honor 10 a slight nick – all credits to the Phantom Blue model, but Asus Zenfone 5Z is quite a beauty in Itself as well, so we’ll leave the judgment on you.
Asus Zenfone 5Z brings a 6.2 inch, IPS LCD Panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2246 pixels at an aspect ratio of 18.7:9, all thanks to the notch.
The pixel density stands out at ~402PPI what It translates to is really punchy colours, strong contrast levels, and amazing viewing angles. The display carries a lot of brightness, which makes sunlight readability a thing on Zenfone 5Z.
The colours are well balanced and crisp, without too much oversaturation.
Talking of Huawei Honor 10, the display is 5.84 inches, IPS LCD panel much the Zenfone 5Z with a resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels same as Zenfone 5Z but since the display is a bit smaller, the pixel density is a little higher at ~432 PPI.
This display speaks quality or should we say exudes quality. The colours are amazing, crisp and sharp with decent brightness levels not as much as Zenfone 5Z.
The contrast levels are quite impressive as well, overall we rate it as a solid mid-range offering from Huawei.
In the display comparison, we rate Asus Zenfone 5Z having a better display when compared to Huawei Honor 10, the difference is not very big though.
3. Internals & Performance
Often we find that Internals are almost same for budget-impressive mid-rangers but that’s not the very case here. Starting with Zenfone 5Z packing the best out there – Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 at its heart with 8 cores (4×2.7 GHz Kryo 385 Gold & 4×1.7 GHz Kryo 385 Silver).
The performance, we don’t need to give a certificate here as It is the best you can get in the Android space right now in 2018. Coupled with a large, 6GB of RAM, It takes multi-tasking, app switching times to shreds of a second.
On the gaming front, there is Adreno 630 which again is more than capable of handling games from the Play Store.Zenfone 5Z packs the best processor in Android phone in 2018- Qualcomm Snapdragon 845
Let’s talk about Honor 10 now, with HiSilicon Kirin 970 at Its heart, the Huawei’s foundry is not yet in the same ranks as Snapdragons. Kirin 970 is an octa-core SoC with 4×2.
4 GHz Cortex-A73 and 4×1.8 GHz Cortex-A53.
The performance is undoubtedly lag-less and stutters free, It is almost flagship grade as you won’t see it falling off on performance scales but It is not close to Snapdragon 845 yet.
For gaming, Mali-G72 MP12 is there, it is capable but not the best of the lot. Presence of 6GB of RAM makes things a lot smoother and snappier, so you won’t observe any major difference in real-life usage but we expect Snapdragon 845 to age better than Kirin 970.
Asus Zenfone 5Z comes in three variants with 64 GB, 6GB of RAM, 128 GB, 8 GB RAM and 256 GB, 8 GB RAM while the Huawei Honor 10 is available out there with 128 GB, 6 GB RAM configuration. Asus Zenfone 5Z seems to shatter skies with 274499 points on AnTuTu Benchmark while Huawei Honor 10 is comfortably behind at 200440 points.
Clearly, in the processor and power comparison, Zenfone 5Z easily wins over the Honor 10.
You can read our the in-depth comparison of Snapdragon 845 vs Kirin 970 processors.
4. Camera Comparison
Mid-range has been seeing a lot of competition in terms of camera performance and here we have some of it as well. Asus Zenfone 5Z sports a dual camera setup comprised of a primary 12 MP (f/1.8, 24mm, 1/2.55″, 1.4µm, PDAF) shooter and a secondary 8 MP (f/2.
0, 12mm, 1/4″, 1.12µm) sensor with gyro EIS and dual-LED (dual tone) flash. On the other side, Huawei Honor 10 features a dual camera organization with a primary 16 MP (f/1.8) sensor and a secondary 24 MP B/W (f/1.8) sensor with gyro-EIS (1080p) and LED flash.
Now that we have got specs the way, let’s talk about the image quality of both of these setups. Asus Zenfone 5Z captures beautiful shots in daylight with details in abundance, nice contrast levels, and colours.The exposure is right on point as well but If you love taking zoomed shots, then this is going to be disappointing for you. In unfavourable conditions and low-light, the camera isn’t exactly any special besides there’s coarse noise, But the autofocus is really amazing on Zenfone 5Z.
The performance is quite competitive in the mid-range and Its a decent camera with a score of 90 on DxOMark.
Asus Zenfone 5Z captures beautiful shots in daylight with details in abundance, nice contrast levels, and colours.
Huawei Honor 10 takes stunning daylight photos with deep contrast levels, less aggressive AI based oversaturation, enough details, and low-levels of noise thanks to multi-frame stacking.
There is over sharpening sometimes but not too much. As with Zenfone 5Z, low-light performance isn’t all too impressed with a lot of softness and noise.
Contrast gets all too misplaced but the colour detail is well preserved.
The front cameras have some substantial difference with Zenfone 5Z packing an 8 MP (f/2.0, 24mm, 1/4″, 1.
12µm), gyro EIS, 1080p sensor which takes decent daylight selfies but nothing much impressive in low-light, Honor 10, on the other hand, flaunts a 24 MP, f/2.0, 1080p which takes in a lot of details and while the day-light performance is good, nightlife is certainly a lot behind. So which one is better?
Both the cameras are quite close by being excellent mid-range options but if you are a camera freak, not so much. Huawei Honor 10 takes a slight lead over Asus Zenfone 5Z.
So here we are Software, we love software and its ability to make the hardware fly or stoop to the basement of hell. Asus Zenfone 5Z runs on Android 8.
1 Oreo the box with ZenUI custom skin on top and this is quite close to stock Android, so we do have a soft spot there. Huawei Honor 10 runs on Android Oreo 8.1 as well, with EMUI8.
1 on top, while we’ve said it previously that EMUI is one of the most sophisticated skins out there and It still stands.
There are a plethora of features in EMUI 8.1, some more useful than others, some not. EMUI sees an addition of Machine Learning to predict usage patterns and optimize performance and other aspects of your smartphone quite MIUI 10.
The experience is stutter-free and frustration free, responsive and speedy at all times. ZenUI is not that loaded but that also means better performance, snappier interface and yes no tons of bloatware, which EMUI 8.1 is replete with.
Both the skins support the notch and there comes the face unlock, who could miss that? We’d to say that EMUI is the better one with lots of features but the simplicity and efficacy of ZenUI make us consider that.

There is no wireless charging as well, despite those shiny glass backs.
