ASUS has really stepped up its game with the Zenfone 6 or ASUS 6z as it is known in India. It runs a new version of ZenUI that is closer to stock and it is also guaranteed to get updated to Android Q and Android R.

The Zenfone 6 has 48MP dual rear cameras that flip forward to double as the front-facing cameras. This allows the phone to have a near bezel-less display without the need for a notch or punch hole. The phone also packs a massive 5000mAh battery, a Snapdragon 855 chipset, an audio jack, and a triple card slot that allows you to use dual nano-SIMs and a MicroSD card at the same time.
