Asus’ approach to the smartphone market is to focus on two niches. As a result, the manufacturer has two variants, ROG Phone and Zenfone. If the former is game-oriented, the latter focuses more on the compact side. For the winter sales of 2023, Fnac and Darty are selling the 8 + 128 GB version for 699 euros instead of 799 euros.
Unlike other manufacturers who make a model for each segment, Asus’ positioning is quite smart. With the Zenfone range, the firm is ultimately tackling a less competitive market: compact smartphones. The latest model in this version is the Asus Zenfone 9. For the winter sales of 2023, you can get the 8 + 128 GB version for 100 euros cheaper.
Why is Asus Zenfone 9 interesting?
- Powerful Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1
- 120 Hz AMOLED panel
- Video recording in 8K @24 fps
Instead of the usual €799, the Asus Zenfone 9 is now on sale at Fnac and Darty for €699.

Asus Zenfone 9 at the best price?
A reference to compacts
With each generation, Asus always manages to maintain the DNA of the Zenfone models, which is a compact, ergonomic, well-finished powerful smartphone. Hence, the Zenfone 9 gets a sober design with rounded edges. With dimensions of 68.1 x 146.5 x 9.1 mm for 169 g, the grip will be pleasant. The back is made of polymer plastic to improve ergonomics. The smartphone does not run the risk of slipping through your fingers or leaving fingerprints.
Another advantage of this model, apart from its compact size, is the screen. For this iteration, we have a 5.9-inch AMOLED panel that displays a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels (Full HD+) and a density of 445 dpi. This gives particularly deep blacks and infinite contrast. Added to this is an adaptive refresh rate of 120 Hz. Suffice it to say that fluidity will be a daily occurrence on this smartphone.
Compact with premium features
Underneath Asus Zenfone 9 hides a powerful monster, Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor coupled with Adreno 730 graphics chip. We also have 8 GB LPDDR5 RAM, 128 GB ROM. No game, even the most greedy, will be able to break the configuration. It is even the strongest in its category. With this smartphone, you can perform your daily tasks calmly and comfortably.
Despite its small size, the Zenfone 9 has a durable 4300 mAh battery. With extensive use, this model will last a day with good and standard use, about a day and a half. If Asus has skipped wireless charging on this smartphone, you can recover 100% of your battery in 1 hour 15 minutes. Finally, the main photo sensor is 50 Mpx against 12 Mpx for the front photo module. They do the job.
