Small times are coming back – I finally ordered a Zenfone 8 before bed – the 16GB variant. That’s more than most laptops have in them. Whether that actually makes any difference day to day than the 8GB variant – time will tell. But I do know my 12GB Zenfone 6 Edition 30 was always very smooth. I also read that there is barely any speed increase from 8GB to 12GB, although I read that before the Snapdragon 888 was around, and maybe it has changed since. Certainly Sony have chosen to put 12GB in the Xperia 1 III, and Sony don’t generally choose to over-spec their products if there isn’t any benefit to doing this.

We shall see!

The phone was £850 from an Ebay seller. Yes that is a lot – but it’s still not £1199.99! I will also be able to use it out and about right away because ASUS include a plastic phone case in the box! They’ve been known to do this for several of their phones, in fact. I really wouldn’t ever choose to use a plastic case but it should be fine for a bit whilst I get to ordering a gel case.

Disappointingly I read that the Zenfone 8 does not have an HDR mode for the camera. Whether this is a huge issue, again I will wait to see. One thing I do know for sure is that I have always been very pleased with the results I get with taking photos with Zenfones. Ohh but it doesn’t have wireless charging. Oh NO. How ever will I cope without the need to source and pay extra money for a wireless charger, just so I have to lug that thing around with me to work all the time instead of just plug and go with a normal charger. Ohh, I am just so very heart broken about the lack of wireless charging.

Hopefully ASUS also leave silly gimmicks to the likes of Samsung next year as well…..

I'm a gamer. I'm a coaster. I am happy in general. We're all born by chance and we're all gonna die. That makes me no better or worse than you. Get over that fact and we'll probably get along. I comment on the Google news feed a lot. Oh, and I swear quite a lot.
