ASUS Zenfone 10 review: At a glance

  • What is it? The ASUS Zenfone 10 is the latest compact flagship Android phone from ASUS. Sporting a little 5.9-inch display, it’s smaller than rival flagship phones. But with a powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor onboard, this is a tiny phone with a power-user mentality.
  • What is the price? Keeping the same €799 (and presumably $699) entry price as the Zenfone 9, the ASUS Zenfone 10 remains an affordable flagship phone.
  • Where can you buy it? You can buy the ASUS Zenfone 10 from ASUS, Amazon, and other stores. It goes on sale on June 29, 2023.
  • How did we test it? I tested the ASUS Zenfone 10 for seven days. The review unit was supplied by ASUS.
  • Is it worth it? The ASUS Zenfone 10 is an excellent phone for those after a compact phone that doesn’t scrimp on flagship hardware or battery life. It’s more affordable than some competitors too. The only drawback is a middling update commitment.

The big reason to have your eye on the ASUS Zenfone 10 is, ironically, its small stature. With a compact 5.92-inch 120Hz FHD+ display, this is a small flagship Android phone built in the guise of the regular Apple iPhone 14, Samsung Galaxy S23, and Google Pixel 7 rather than their gargantuan powerhouse siblings. Still, the ASUS Zenfone 10 doesn’t leave us wanting for high-end features. An IP68 rating and solid-sounding speakers are a staple of ASUS’ setup, while 15W Qi wireless charging is a new addition to the series this year. There’s even a headphone jack; a feature long absent from its aforementioned rivals.
