ASUS Zenfone 8 Flip has a good front and rear camera setup. However, the lack of front-facing selfie camera cutout isn't enough to justify the average display.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The Zenfone 8 Flip has a good rear camera, which takes photos you'll be happy to share without messing around with much editing. It also has an amazing front camera that takes better selfies than just about any other phone. The motorized flip camera has an auto panorama mode — where it moves for you, rather than you moving the phone — and a tracking mode too. I've happily played Asphalt 9: Legends for an hour in a sitting.
