OK, been rocking this bad boi for some time now.
Build: Looks interesting, feels solid, back gets dirty, glass is easy to scratch.
Packaging: Charger and a case that is waaay too thick.
Display: Good colors, DC dimming.
Battery: Used to last a crazy amount of time. Like 2 days no problem, 3 if you use it less intensely. Lately my network started consuming A LOT of power for some reason.
Camera: Well, my old phone is iPhone 11, and it most definitely took better shots than Zenfone 9. Decent midrange photos, but nothing special. Gimbals are cool for video, though.
Headphone jack: Works well. Not having to stick Lithium-ion batteries in my ears feels great.
Software: Annoying bugs. Infrequent updates. Only 2 years support?! Main weak spot of the phone. At least they let you unlock the bootloader, so I hope there's some good ROMs in the future.
Summary: Sane feature set (unlike any other phone on the market), but it has a lot of quirks I wouldn't expect at the $800 price point. Would've probably sold 10x the numbers if they could tone down the specs and sell it for $4-500.

Good form factor but way too expensive. Xiaomi 12 is better choice imo

This is better buy than Zenfone 10. Cheaper, better ultra wide camera.

This is a great phone! If only more manufacturers made phones of this size. I am not need of such high specifications so it is a bit expensive for me.

Technically none of asus phones have decent case or screen protector options available.

I really want to like the Zenfone 9, but it is the most unreliable phone I've owned. Had the Zenfone 9 since Oct. 2022. The call quality is very poor. On regular basis, the callee complains about robotic voice usually after 2-5 minutes call in noisy environments - i.e., supermarkets, traffic, open office etc. Other weird bugs are happening e.g., touch controls not working, pocket calls, etc. The front camera sucks big time in dimmed light. The rear camera shots are often blurry on the first few tries.

Excellent phone. Nice unique design and excellent battery for one day. I'm very appreciated it.

Great compact phone. However, Should have at least 3 year software support

You know what, just stick with this phone and don't even bother with the Zenfone 10 (due to be released later this year), as the Zenfone 10 is WAY TOO BIG for its purposes. If the rumors are true and the Zenfone 10 really is going to be as big as everyone is touting it to be, then that's the end of the line of the Zenfone series altogether.

Excelent phone, have it since the launch and I enjoy the small form factor and the top performance. Excelent job Asus, keep it up!
