The grain on the rear isn't as coarse as it was on the OnePlus back in the day, but it's caused enough for me to take the smartphone without the case rather than with it.
Speaking of camera lenses, they are indeed large and thick. Some on the internet are rightfully criticizing the fact that it could have been done differently. Personally, I'm not bothered by the design.
The Zenfone 9 is available in four distinct hues, with red and blue being my favorites. Asus is also introducing a new accessory line dubbed "Connex."
The sound quality of the speakers is better than that of the Zenfone 8, but don't expect premium speakers here. In some games, I've utilized it more frequently.
The Zenfone 9 is powered by the current Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC
Which also powers the Asus ROG 6 / 6 Pro gaming smartphone.
Furthermore, at least 8 GB of RAM is used, if not 12 or even 16 GB.
