Zalo - Give a Virtual High Five Review

Our intention is to make the most of each app review. No matter which platform you use, our reviews are relevant. We check the app's usability comprehensively, devoting from 15 to 24 hours to the issue.

Zalo is a mobile messaging app coming from Vietnam. It serves as a substitute for paid SMS and phone calls, adding video-chats, emojis + stickers tandem, group conferencing etc. Download Zalo to save a few pennies and chat, until your fingers get tired. Even on older devices, with older OS.

Functionality 4.5/5

So far Zalo is dominantly known in the South Asia. As a result, it offers a unique strategy: providing top-notch instant messaging to people, who have to deal with knavish internet and old devices. That's why Zalo feels just fine, whenever connected to 3G.

Following its big name "cousins" like WhatsApp and Telegram, Zalo employs encryption algorithms to garner privacy. And whenever you need to talk to someone, simply type a message, send it and watch a dialogue ensue. Or if your vis-a-vis is absent - leave them a voice memo that you exist.

Video and audio calls are also on the menu and can boast of a decent quality. The picture becomes grainy only when your connectivity fails. But it still manages to go on, proving that Zalo can work even in Spartan conditions. Additionally, Zalo easily befriends gizmos with weak chips and limited RAM, putting aside lavish effects in favor of reliable communication.

Group sessions, especially in the form of text-chats are supported as well. This is why Zalo is especially popular among Vietnamese students. The standard feature of emojis + stickers doesn't offer anything groundbreaking like customizable emoticons by the Snapchat's developers. But its collection is decent and encompasses the emotional spectre nicely: from playful winking to hysterical laughter.

Design 4/5

Our Zalo review can assure you: this app is all about simplicity. It has a humble blue & white color pallet with a very responsive interface. You can organize your contacts how you please in the respective tab, adjust the settings and even watch the news feed, courteously provided by the app.

Usability 5/5

Apparently, Zalo's motto is "Work everywhere, on every phone". It manages to stay perfectly functional even on (relatively) archaic mobile devices. And 3G connectivity isn't a hurdle at all - the application knows how to squeeze everything out of this slightly outdated technology.

Cross-platform use 5/5

As of now, this messenger can be downloaded for both "flagship" mobile platforms: iOS and Android. Its requirements are pretty humble: e.g. iOS 8.0 is good enough for it to work on your iPhone. Windows versions, both mobile and desktop, can be obtained too.

In-app purchases

Zalo's key feature won't require you to disembowel your wallet. But you can buy extra-content: sticker packs etc. Prices start with roughly 1 dollar.

The Bottom Line

Zalo follows an effective strategy: simplicity, wide compatibility, economy. It seems to be fruitful, and now the overall user number exceeds 50 million. If you don't fancy buying fancy mobile gadgets and prefer efficiency over visual wow-effects - Zalo could be your choice. It is a humble, but amazingly reliable messenger.
