As ASUS’ consumer flagship, there are high expectations for the ZenFone 7 Pro. The ZenFone 6 had the highest score for selfies as it utilized its dual-camera module for the said task. The ZenFone 7 Pro still has the same flipping module, but adds a telephoto module this time around, along with a higher-resolution 64-megapixel main shooter. How did it fare with DxOMark?
For selfies, the ZenFone 7 Pro scored 101, which is a point higher than the Galaxy S20 Ultra and two points behind the P40 Pro. Just like its predecessor, the ZenFone 7 Pro’s unique mechanism makes good use of the 64-megapixel main camera for selfies, helping it attain excellent detail and texture for selfies. The main camera’s autofocus proved to be helpful as well in ensuring selfies to be in focus at all times.
In general, the only point of criticism for the ZenFone 7 Pro’s selfie performance is with skin texture, as DxOMark noticed some oversharpening.
As for DxOMark camera, the ZenFone 7 Pro scored 115, placing it at par with 2019 premium flagship phones like the P30 Pro and Galaxy S10 5G. While it is far from the performance of 2020 premium flagship phones, the ZenFone 7 Pro’s score proves that they can deliver great image and video quality. Aside from the increased resolution helping the ZenFone 7 Pro perform better than its predecessor, the addition of a telephoto module also helps in the phone’s shooting versatility—despite having a rather limited dynamic range.
Just like with the ZenFone 6, there’s no word if the ZenFone 7 series will be coming to the Philippines. Should ASUS consider making their 2020 consumer flagship phone available locally?
