I need to buy e new phone in the next few days, and I would like to have a compact phone, and Zenfone is the one I like the most! Through my research, I came across a Zenfone 8 for 429 euros. This phone and price attempt me, but I am not sure if I should buy this one due to the older release date and few updates offered by ASUS. I would like to have a Zenfone 9, but 800 euros feels way too much, and an iPhone mini would be more compact for the same price. Many comparators I used say that at this price, instead of a Zenfone 8 or 9, I should buy a Galaxy S21 FE (350 euros). In other subs, Pixel is the most recommended, and Zenfone is not even mentioned in the recommendations.
I own the ZenFone 8 and it still rocks! 😎 Yes, I have upgraded to the latest Android 13 and I have NO issues with Wi-Fi. It takes great footage and video and I love it for its compact size.
Another phone I use for work is Samsung Galaxy S10e .. also the perfect size and still works like a charm 🙂
I would say that you should buy it if that is your current budget. I will be switching to the ZenFone 10 soon so my 8 will be put out for sale 😁
