The Asus Zenfone 9 launched last week, and it stands out as one of the few pocket-friendly flagship phones on the market. The pairing of a 5.99-inch display and Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset is unique in a world where 6.7-inch flagship phones are the norm.
What do readers think of the new smartphone though? We posed this question in our Asus Zenfone 9 announcement article and here’s what you told us.
Asus Zenfone 9: Hot or not?
Over 2,100 votes were counted in this poll, and it turns out that 82.1% of respondents said the Zenfone 9 was indeed hot. We can see why too, owing to the compact form factor, flagship performance, 3.5mm port, and IP68 rating.
On the other hand, 17.89% of polled readers felt that the Zenfone 9 wasn’t worth a look. We can see why people might vote for this option in light of our Zenfone 9 review. We lamented the disappointing software update promise, lack of wireless charging, and average image quality. Nevertheless, it’s clear that the vast majority of polled readers feel the positives far outweigh the negatives.
