To get a feel for how graphics performance on the ZenFone Zoom compares to other devices, we used Futuremark's 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited benchmark.

Unsurprisingly, the ZenFone Zoom comes close to matching the ZenFone 2 in graphical performance. More broadly, it's situated in the middle of the pack. Although it doesn't offer class-leading GPU performance, the phone is capable of handling graphically intense mobile games, albeit with somewhat lower detail settings, making it ideal for casual gamers and those who only use their phones to game every once in a while. 

Battery Life
Should you keep that charger handy?

If you're looking for a phone that lasts all day on a single charge, look no further. The meaty 3,000 mAh battery in the device ensures that this handset will cruise through a typical day's usage with plenty of life to spare. Even in our taxing rundown test it netted over 10 hours of constant use, putting it in rarified territory alongside behemoths like the Galaxy Note 5.
