Asus Zenfone 8 Flip Review: Rotating Camera Fails

Asus Zenfone 8 Flip Review: Rotating Camera Fails

The photo component is similar to what we discovered in the Zenfone 7 in 2020. Therefore, the Rotary unit consists of three modules with a core of 64 megapixels, an 12 MPX ultra wide angle and an 8MP telephoto lens that allows an X3. Optical zoom. For now, the photo results have not shaken us much. According to Asus, the issues encountered will need to be fixed with a future update, which will be used after the smartphone is released.

By default, the smartphone uses photos at 16 Mpx Pixel pinning. In the full definition, it provides high detail, precision and above all, scenes with almost perfect colorization. At 16MP, we notice that the image tends to lose color – especially a problem that is visible on the blue face in the upper left corner of the scene.

However, the finding is not identical in low light. In fact, the snapshot at 64 Mpx does not add anything other than the one taken at 16 Mpx.

Despite this slight concern for color, the Zenfone 8 offers a more detailed image than the Flip OnePlus 9. The shot is less crushed and gives more sharpness.

Same thing at night. Although the Asus smartphone has a bit of software processing, it does not hesitate to soften the image at its core. We also notice a slight loss of color than daytime photography.

Ultra wide-angle module

Tito with Ultra White-Angle Module. The smartphone offers a much different and more detailed image than the OnePlus 9. Unfortunately, the whole shot suffers from the effects of a mysterious fog.

At night, OnePlus 9 shows itself on the other side above. The photo of the Zenfone 8 flip is completely smoothed and the fog effect does not help things.

Telephoto module

The OnePlus 9 does not offer a telephoto module unlike a Zenfone 8 flip, which selects the X3 optical zoom. During the day, the clich suffers from excessive software processing, crushing details and smoothing the display. Digital noise also makes its appearance. However, the film is more relevant than it is at night, but rather confusing.

Front module, portrait and video mode

The whole policy of the smartphone is based on the fact that the rear modules are used for the front. Thus, you can take selfies at 64 MPX, ultra wide-angle, as well as zoom X3. In terms of portraits, the smartphone is very efficient, although some misinformation in the small details, for example sharp hair.

In video, the Zenfone 8 Flip 8K can shoot up to 30 fps. It does not have an optical stabilizer, but an electric stabilizer in all three modules. So tremor is controlled, but not with an OIS.
