asus zenfone zoom vs lumia 1020

It’s rare that we see a manufacturer build a phone around one specific feature. Not just the camera on the phone, but the ZOOM on that camera. Only a few manufacturer’s have tackled this feature. Often it results in the Frankenstein combination of camera and phone, like the Samsung K Zoom which is really more camera than phone.

From a phone perspective, Asus has a better solution for keeping the whole zoom mechanism contained. A series of prisms and lens elements are mounted periscope style to keep the lens from telescoping out the back of the ZenFone Zoom. For those interested, we have the most in-depth ZenFone Zoom camera review available online.

But that’s not the only way to zoom. Noka showed us a novel way to use a digital crop zoom two and a half years ago. Who has the better solution for getting closer to our photo and video subjects? Hardware optical zoom, or digital software zoom? Here’s our camera zoom showdown between the Asus ZenFone Zoom and the Nokia Lumia 1020.
