The smartphone industry is one of the most lucrative markets in the world and therefore, no one should be surprised to find out that there are many foreign companies which are doing their best to take a piece of the cake. Take Asus for example, this company keeps launching new smartphones every year in hopes of taking some customers away from the likes of Samsung.
Considering that Samsung launched the highly anticipated Galaxy Note 8 this year, Asus’s goal of competing against the South Korean tech giant have gone substantially lower. Today we will look at the top two smartphones produced by these companies and see how well they fare.
Zenfone V is one of the best devices that Asus ever made and it’s 5.2-inches display reflects that. The display uses AMOLED technology which offers a full HD (1080 x 1920) resolution and a pixel density of 424 ppi. While Zenfone V might be quite impressive, there’s no doubt that its display pales in comparison with Galaxy Note 8.
Galaxy Note 8 is one of the first smartphones ever to feature a bezel less display which covers 82.89% of the smartphone’s surface. Moreover, the panel uses Super AMOLED technology which offers a higher 1440 x 2960-pixel resolution and 525 ppi.
High-End Hardware Specs
If we look under Zenfone V’s hood we can see that its fueled by one of Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 820 CPUs. This processor is quite impressive since it clocks at 2.15MHz. Things get even better since the processor is coupled with an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM.
Galaxy Note 8 is competing against every high-end smartphone that’s available on the market right now and Samsung needed to make sure that it will win against any opponent. Therefore, Galaxy Note 8 is equipped with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 CPU which clocks at the amazing speed of 2.35MHz. Additionally, the processor is bundled with an Adreno 540 GPU and 6GB of RAM.
Even though Zenfone V is certainly impressive in its own right, it just isn’t up to par with Galaxy Note 8. However, we should give props to Asus for its high-end smartphone since its way more affordable than Galaxy Note 8.
