We went over to Taipei, Taiwan to attend the grand launch of the ASUS ZenFone 4 family of smartphones. Gong Yoo was there, and the place was like Train To Busan as people flock to the venue just to meet him. After the grand launch, we hung out for a while before heading over to dinner, and that's when the surprise struck us - we're getting the ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro right then and there!
A while back, Samsung announced two new phones that focuses on the flexibility of the cameras. Samsung announced both the Galaxy A7 (2018) and also the Galaxy A9 (2018).

The Galaxy A9 (2018) ups the ante by introducing a total of 4 cameras - a main camera, an ultrawide angle camera, a depth sensor, and another 2x zoom lens.
OPPO has been making mid-range smartphones for years now. The OPPO F1s from years ago paved the way for this cheap-yet-great price range of smartphones, and it ws my favorite smartphone at that time.

ASUS has been releasing their smartphones under the ZenFone brand name for quite some time now. We've all came to know ASUS through their phones in the past through their smartphones in the market. On August of 2017, ASUS announced the ZenFone 4 in Taipei, Taiwan. During that event, ASUS told us that their flagship will be the Selfie Pro that we reviewed here. I personally think that's an illegitimate heir - but will the ZenFone 4 be the real heir?

Nokia has been actively announcing and promoting new phones into the market since last year. We reviewed the Nokia 8, and they've announced a refresh during MWC2018. and now it's time for the new Nokia 7 Plus. Many people actually regard the Nokia 7 Plus as their flagship instead.
It's been quite a while since we last have an OPPO smartphone in the labs - and today, we have their latest R-series smartphone in our hands - the OPPO R17 Pro. It came out guns blazing with a few key highlights - fantastic night shots, SuperVOOC charger, and the 3D TOF camera.
