Asus Zenfone 6 video teardown peeks at the flip camera from the inside

Vlad, 21 June 2019

A couple of days ago the intriguing Asus Zenfone 6 was put through a torture test, focusing on its flip camera. This ended up being much more resilient than most people would've thought. But what if you feel the need to dig even deeper?

Well then, this teardown video, from the same JerryRigEverything YouTube channel, is for you. Not content to just peek at the camera from the outside, Zack takes the whole phone apart this time in order to show us what it looks like from the inside.

So you get a nice serving of interestingly stacked parts, bits, and pieces, but probably the centerpiece of the teardown is unsurprisingly the camera - and specifically the mechanism that makes it flip up with such ease. We won't spoil anything about it for you, just make sure you watch the video to get an idea of how it works.

The phone is held together with a lot of glue, although the battery comes off much easier than it should, possibly thanks to an error in the process that is supposed to make it adhere to the back side of the screen. Speaking of the display, it's going to be hard to replace because it's permanently glued to the metal housing.

interesting that non of the reviews mention the camera rattle, it is almost like they did not even try to use the phone in real life or got cherry picked examples

Agreed. The closest anyone else gets is Gary Explains, for the SpeedTests. And PhoneBuff which is the best for the Battery Life tests. They also do some motorised drop tests which are "okay" and currently the best available. Although I would...

Love Zack twisting vthe camera
