Reviewers from Anandtech have found the following[***]:
The ZenFone 7 and 7 Pro employ Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 865 SoCs and are thus 5G-capable devices thanks to the X55 modem. This is a very large phone that is in line with the iPhone 11 Pro Max and the Galaxy S20 Ultra in terms of footprint. The main camera as well as the telephoto module feature OIS in their modules, whilst the regular Zenfone 7 doesn't feature this.

Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The Zenfone 7 Pro has the best selfie camera in the business, bar none. Colors are vibrant, exposure is spot-on, edge detection in portrait mode is excellent. Asus has even employed the special tuning that makes the ROG Phone 3's display so pretty on the 7 Pro. If you notice the notch or hate the hole-punch, the ZenFone 7pro's pretty to look at, uninterrupted screen will be what you want.

Reviewers from Gsmarena have found the following[***]:
The Zenfone 7 Pro is the second iteration of the motorized flip-up camera assembly introduced on theZenfone 6 last year. The motorized assembly is now bigger to accommodate an extra cam, including a telephoto with 3x optical zoom. The main unit's gotten better and now employs a 64MP Quad Bayer imager. It can record 8K video at 30fps (with EIS), as well as 4K at 120fps slow motion.

The Asus Zenfone 7 Pro launches in Europe today, September 1st. The Pro variant comes in at €799, putting the phone in direct competition with devices like the OnePlus 8 and the LG Velvet. The 6.4-inch IPS display on theZenfone 6 was one of the few disappointments of the smartphone. Asus has addressed the issue for the 7 series with a 6.67-inch AMOLED from Samsung.

phonearena[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 78%
Reviewers from Phonearena have found the following[***]:
The is a very interesting phone, indeed. In a world, where in-display fingerprint scanners, punch-hole cameras, and seem to be the trend, this phone dares to do things a bit differently. The beautiful multi gradient back covers are bound to turn heads, and when you flip up the camera module the attention-grabbing mission will be complete.

Pros[**]
  • Beautiful multi gradient back covers
  • Beautiful 90% screen to body ratio
  • Excellent battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

techradar[7]

Sentiment Score[*] 76%
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Asus Zenfone 7 Pro is an improvement on its predecessor in every way, from better specs and battery charging to adding a crucial third lens to its flippable camera. But beyond the same shooters for both taking regular photos and selfies, the phone is a pretty standard Android flagship. The phone distinctly lacks such modern features as wireless charging and in-screen fingerprint scanners (the 7 Pro's biometric sensor is located in the lock button). These omissions don't sink our opinion of the phone, though they may rankle some fans who have come to expect such features if they're paying top dollar.

Pros[**]
  • Fingerprint sensor is integrated in lock button
  • Good battery life
  • Good camera performance
Cons[**]
  • Lack of modern features

Sentiment Score[*] 73%
Reviewers from Theverge have found the following[***]:
The Asus Zenfone 7 Pro is launching in Europe today with prices starting at €799 (about $955) There are also no plans for an official release in North America. There's no notch or other selfie camera cutout thanks to the flipping cameras. The main camera fares better when taking selfie shots because it seems to lose less facial detail when closer to the camera.

Pros[**]
  • Gorgeous 5,000mAh battery
  • Wide-angle, ultrawide, and telephoto cameras flip
  • Long battery life
Cons[**]
  • Camera isn't great in daylight

Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
Asus surprised us last year with the ZenFone 6 — a quirky yet powerful phone with a nifty camera that could flip a full 180 degrees, all at a compelling price tag of just $499. Its replacement for 2020, the Asus Zenfone 7, doubles down on its predecessor's funky imaging system and performance value. But there's a catch: theZenFone 7 won't be as widely available as ZenFones of the past have been.

Pros[**]
  • Fantastic triple-lens camera system
  • Excellent battery life
  • Decent performance
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
