We live in a fast-paced world and technology seems to be getting more and more advanced by the day. In a matter of years, what seemed to be impossible before has been surpassed and we are now looking forward to a future of great possibilities. But, let’s take a look at the thing that comes in handy — mobile phones. Here’s a list of this year’s best mobile phones of each brand (as of August 2016) to help you decide before switching or upgrading to a new one.
The beauty of Jade
This powerful phone continues the design excellence of the Liquid Jade line of smartphones. Its dynamic curves and hairline-brush finishing make this one of the most attractive phones, ever. The Jade Primo doesn’t just look great, it also feels great in your hands.
A truly exceptional display
Ultra-tough Gorilla Glass strengthens the phone’s structure and protects one of the best displays you can get on a phone. This 5.5″ Full HD screen features AMOLED and Zero Air Gap technologies to deliver vivid colors (100% NTSC) and crystal-clear visual experiences.
Multitask on two screens
A powerful 64-bit hexa-core processor and a whopping 3GB of RAM work with Continuum features to deliver laptop-like work
productivity. Seamlessly create and edit MS Office documents one your phone. Use your phone to show a presentation on any big screen while doing other work on the phone’s screen!
Powerful computing requires powerful cooling to make sure the phone does not overheat. That’s why the Jade Primo features an advanced cooling system consisting of metal piping that dissipates heat much more effectively than standard technologies.
Making big power small
The Jade Primo uses miniaturization technologies to pack all its computing power into an ultra-slender phone that fits perfectly in your hand. For instance, On-Cell Touch tech reduces the number of display layers and Laser Direct Structuring merges the antenna with the back cover to save space.

The all-metal miracle with invisible antenna
Every smartphone needs antennas but radio waves won’t pass through metal — that’s why so many smartphones designs are marred by ugly gaps. But not ZenFone 3 Ultra. Our world-class engineers’ pursuit of perfection and technical prowess ascend a new pinnacle with ZenFone 3 Ultra, integrating the antennas in such a way as to make them invisible. The result is gapless beauty and uncompromised signal quality. A sleek, diamond-cut wonder with an all-metal unibody that seems impossible — that’s ZenFone 3 Ultra.
The journey to perfection
We start with finest aerospace-grade alloy, precision-milled with 0.18mm diamond-cutting technology to create the optimum balance of strength and sleekness for ZenFone 3 Ultra’s all-metal frame. We then abrade the surface with a hyperfine sanding process, polishing it to a beautifully smooth finish — just one of the 240 precision steps it takes to create perfection.
All your entertainment, upgraded
ZenFone 3 Ultra means mobile entertainment as you’ve never before experienced. With its incredible display, advanced speakers and multitude of advanced audiovisual technologies, you’ll enjoy vivid details, smooth motion and outstanding audio pleasures. You’re even able to transmit your favorite content to any screen with a high-quality DisplayPort connection through its USB-C port. You demand the best video, music, gaming, and reading experiences, so demand the best mobile entertainer — ZenFone 3 Ultra!
ZenFone 3 Ultra is the world’s first smartphone with a dedicated display processor like those found in the latest 4K UHD TVs. We call this ASUS Tru2Life+ technology, and with good reason. Every pixel is optimized to deliver incredible contrast and sharpness for beautiful,true-to-life images. Tru2Life+ also has motion-estimation andmotion-compensation (MEMC) algorithms for smooth, blur-freevideo that doesn’t judder. And, with a 95% NTSC color gamut and 400nits brightness, you’ll view with real-world vibrancy.
ZenFone 3 Ultra’s SonicMaster 3.0 technology combines more audio innovations that you’ll find on any other smartphone — more volume, more quality and more effects. Dual five-magnet speakers are driven by a powerful NXP Smart AMP, for expansive, high-volume output. When it’s time for immersive listening, ZenFone 3 Ultra is able to output certified high-resolution audio to compatible devices at 24-bit/192kHz, or 4x CD quality! Then, ramp up the audio effects with DTS Headphone:X™ to pump virtual 7.1-channelsurround sound straight to your ears — another smartphone world first!
Capture reality, fast and steady. Ultra-fast 0.03s instant focus & subject tracking
Next-generation PixelMaster 3.0 lifts ZenFone 3 Ultra’s photography far above the smartphone norm. To capturereal-world authenticity, PixelMaster 3.0 packs a 23MP camera, 92MP Super Resolution technology, large f/2.0-aperturelens and subject-tracking TriTech auto-focus for any distance and lighting clarity in just 0.03 seconds. With both optical and electronic image stabilization for blur-free shots and video, and color correction sensor for true color photography, forget everything you know about smartphone photography — the PixelMaster 3.0 revolution is here.
ZenFone 3 Ultra has something no other smartphone camera has — its exclusive TriTech auto-focus technology. For the first time in the smartphone world, our engineers have combined three focusing technologies — laser, phase detection and continuous auto-focus — into one harmonious system. Resulting a clear focus in just 0.03 seconds in varying conditions, for all scenarios — and at up to ten times (10x) faster than the blink of your eye!
Steadily shot, shake-free photos and videos. Photos like the actual scenes.
While shooting photos, the four-axis optical image stabilizer (OIS) senses and prevents your hand movements from blurring photos. And for videos, a three-axis electronic image stabilizer (EIS) keeps your handheld videos rock steady.
Photos will appear as realistic as you view them, with deep trench isolation technology preventing photons of light from leaking from one pixel on the sensor to another, resulting in clearer details. The color correction sensor detects unusually-lit subjects and makes them look natural in the resulting photo. These are complemented by the 4x Super Resolution feature which creates a single, extremely detailed photo; andReal-time HDR that properly shows the resulting HDR photo as you frame it.
Speed and power revolution
It seems impossible that something as beautiful as ZenFone 3 Ultra could also deliver exceptional performance — but we’ve made the impossible possible. Its elegant beauty veils monstrous power, including a 64-bit, 1.8GHzocta-core Snapdragon™ 652 processor, 4GB memory and desktop-grade Adreno™ 510 graphics performance. ZenFone 3 Ultra also has 300Mbps 4G LTE and intuitive fingerprint security that unlocks ZenFone 3 Ultra in a fraction of a second — plus so much more besides.
ZenFone 3 Ultra is packed with an extremely high capacity 4600mAh battery to keep you entertained for as long as you desire. Its Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology can have it charged from flat to 60% in just 45 minutes. It can even charge attached devices as a power bank with a high current of up to 1.5A that makes charging up to three times faster.
New interface with added intelligence
Incredible hardware demands spectacular software — and that’s ZenUI 3.0. ZenFone’s sublime front end improves the standard interface in unique ways, and our latest edition includes brand-new ideas to brighten your mobile experience, improve productivity and make everyday life just that little bit more fun. See weather updates withreal-time animations, or check the time with a stylish clock widget. Feel the depth of parallax scrolling as you swipe through your apps, and appreciate how the subtle blurry effect keeps your focus on the foreground. ZenUI 3.0 isn’t just an interface — it’s the best friend who accompanies you everywhere.
Game smart, win fast, stream smooth
Game Genie is a brand-new feature of ZenUI 3.0, and one that’s packed with brilliant features to enhance your playtime! Summon the pop-up search window to hunt for tips as you play, use the booster feature to speed up the action, or broadcast your gameplay live via YouTube or Twitch — if you think you’re good enough!
