Asus is one of the few manufacturers that still offers compact Android smartphones in the premium segment. The new Zenfone 9 scores with size, performance, camera and battery life. At 799 euros, the price has risen significantly compared to the previous year and there are definitely strong competitors in the compact smartphone segment.

With the Zenfone series, Asus is one of the last providers of compact Android smartphones. The Zenfone 9 again relies on compact dimensions and, in comparison to the Zenfone 8, improves on the equipment. The following overview shows where the newest competitor ranks in comparison to other smaller smartphones. Asus does not have the market for itself, as the similarly sized Galaxy S22 (test) shows. And with the iPhone 13 mini (test), which is only 131 mm high, Apple is in a league of its own that no competitor in the Android segment has come close to.

Compact design with good processing

Asus offers the base model of the Zenfone 9 in black, blue, red, and white, the larger configuration only in black and white, and the (tested) top model only in black. All four colors combine a new back made of plastic instead of glass, which is matt and has been slightly roughened to provide more grip, which the manufacturer has also succeeded in doing. The aluminum frame that runs around the device is just as matte and has small bulges for areas such as the power button with integrated fingerprint sensor and the 3.5 mm headphone jack.

More space inside

The most important measure for good handling are the dimensions of just 68.1 × 146.5 × 9.10 mm (W × H × D). The smartphone is 0.4 mm narrower and 1.5 mm shorter than the Zenfone 8, but 0.2 mm thicker, so that the overall volume is even slightly higher. Asus hides the additional space for the internal components with an angular design after the Zenfone 8 was slightly curved towards the edges. The Zenfone 9, on the other hand, is a rectangular smartphone that you can even stand without needing a mount.

Roughened back for grip

The power button, whose fingerprint sensor can be easily reached with the left index finger or right thumb, contributes to good handling. The volume rocker, on the other hand, would be better placed on the left side of the device instead of installing it above the power button and making it comparatively difficult to reach.

Power button supports swipe gestures

On the other hand, it is extremely practical that the power button also recognizes swipe gestures up and down. For example, the Android menu for quick settings and notifications can be pulled down and closed again. However, the button reacts sensitively and quickly, so that you can trigger an action unintentionally. On the other hand, you have to interact much more intensively with the back, which supports double tapping to start apps or the Google Assistant, for example. In the test, the camera was linked to this action, but don't be too squeamish when knocking.

The power button also registers swipe gestures

Although Asus uses plastic instead of glass for the back, the workmanship is consistently high quality. The housing is again certified according to IP68 and withstands permanent immersion in water and keeps dust out. Too bad wireless charging didn't make it into the device. Apple and Samsung are the only two manufacturers that offer this feature in the compact segment. The status LED, which was found next to the USB-C socket on the Zenfone 8, is also no longer on board. The always-on display can potentially serve as a not quite adequate replacement.

5.9 inch OLED display with 120 Hz

With 5.9 inches, 1,080 × 2,400 pixels and up to 120 Hz, the screen is a direct continuation from last year without any changes. According to Asus, the same panel is used as in the Zenfone 8, except that the fingerprint sensor has moved to the side. The fact that there is no optical sensor under the display saves installation depth and makes room for components such as a larger battery. Even the glass is the same as 2021 with Gorilla Glass Victus.

In contrast to recently released devices such as the Nothing Phone (1) (test), buyers of the Zenfone 9 have to do without a symmetrical screen bezel and have to be content with a small “chin” at the bottom. Buyers also get a symmetrical OLED display with Apple's iPhone 13 mini (test). Where the notch occupies a lot of space on the Apple, however, a circular recess is used on the Asus, in which the same 12 MP camera of the Zenfone 8 is located, which provides good photos in daylight but does not reach the HDR capabilities in backlight of the primary camera. With Asus, the front camera can also be used for unlocking, but the 2D method is not as secure as the 3D method Face ID from Apple.

Screen breaks the 1,000 cd/m² mark

Asus advertises the screen with 700 cd/m² full screen brightness and up to 1,100 cd/m² at the top. The measured values ​​of the editors match the manufacturer's information, whereby 1,055 cd/m² were possible with an “Average Picture Level” of 10 percent. The “Optimal” mode set at the factory falsifies the image in the direction of a cooler white point. Users are better off with the profiles for sRGB or DCI-P3, which achieve the same brightness values. Anyone who makes manual changes to the panel can always return to the factory settings of the screen with a button.

Unit: Contrast

Overall, the OLED panel performs well, but there are no improvements compared to the last generation. Samsung in particular shows with the Galaxy S22 (test) that you can accommodate 6.1 inches with similar dimensions. At Samsung, buyers also get a Qualcomm ultrasonic fingerprint sensor integrated into the display. The panel of the Zenfone 9, on the other hand, gets around 150 cd/m² brighter in certain areas.

Android with one-hand mode

If you can't reach the entire display, Asus offers a one-handed mode for Android that can be activated by swiping down on the last few centimeters of the display. The content slides to 50 percent of the height, so that even buttons positioned very high can be easily reached with the thumb. Asus has succeeded in enabling one-handed operation of both the hardware and the software in numerous aspects of everyday operation.
