Asus Zenfone 8 Flip 10

Zenfone gets to 8:

  • The team checked out the Zenfone 8 and gave the Zenfone 8 Flip an early hands-on as well. The Zenfone 8 review has this classic line: “Asus made a deal with the devil in order to pull off the small-sized Zenfone 8.” That explains that to keep it at a compact 5.9-inches, battery life and overall camera quality suffer just a bit.

Tech Tweet of the Week

Just a bizarre turn of events:

This whole thread is incredible. Dude gets busted driving a Tesla from the backseat, car gets impounded. He goes out and *BUYS A NEW TESLA* immediately, and says he’s going to keep driving that way. “I pioneered this” he says missing the fact that people have died doing this. https://t.co/D5fZVn7Ocd
