About that? Deluxe is not enough and its price range why dont you have a very useful water resistant? Picture taking under the water and for accident even if in salt sea can survive?
Dearest fellows.It is a better midrange smartdevice with a price of $530 not digestible for many !!!Also SD 653 , WiFi dual band , DLNA ,4000+mah may have been forgotten to be written but havingnNFC,IR,and complete Bluetooth,USB c are advantages too !!About using hybrid dual SIM slot and using the second one as a memory slot,being mentioned in all GSMArena reviews,as long as buyers do not say anything and brands do not care at all,has become a wrong habitat unfortunately,....Thanks all.Justice Rights,....
Cool story, bro, 07 Nov 2016You're kidding, right? A note to potential buyers, please be sure to see what owners of the pr... moreits irrelevant thease new series haven't any issues and i have to say the last model was good enough specially for the price
the problem was the max brightness of screen and camera could be better and compatibility problems of some app with intel cpu
but zenfone3 and deluxe version are superb now camera screen quality and brightness performance...
chie0917, 15 Oct 2016It should have come with Snapdragon 652. To really differentiate it from the regular Znf3.I agree with you. Deluxe... at least snapdragon 652.
mama, 18 Nov 2016update all zenfone 2 first and then release zenfone 3 , a lot of bugs and errors @ zenfone 2 Good luck with that... Their software division sucks bigtime!!! They don't even listen to their customers.
Why do this people keep making hybrid sim slot for 2nd sim card and MicroSD ? This is the exact reason I have to stick to my Zenfone 2
Listen, there are alot of people out there who has 2 active numbers and also still needed the extra memory...
Stop making Hybrid Sim Slot !!! Please....
I love the zenfone
I have proudly use Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 2, but now I cannot buy Zenfone 3 for that reason I mentioned.
I bought this zs550kl last week..
Why do I chose this model instead of ZE552KL.. Though it has same chipset..
1. Premium aluminium built vs Glass built Gorilla 2.5D
2. NFC vs No NFC
3. Infra red vs No infra red
4. Corning Gorilla glass 4 vs Corning Gorilla 3
5. Quick charge 3.0 vs Standard Charge
6. USB v3.0 vs USB v2.0
Battery consumption really great with moderate use for gaming.. High Internet surfing.. last for about 1 day.. Full charge from 15% to 100% takes 1 hour 30 minutes..
Less heating issue as playing high graphic games and a bit heat when taking video for a long duration..
No lags found when playing high graphic games such Asphalt Extreme..
Camera and video great for moderate lighting but suffers in low light unless u use manual mode.. It much assist..
Fingerprint efficiently response most of time.. Also can be used to take selfie..
Touch gesture if u draw certain alphabets during idle really aids when u in need..
Connectivity great for 3G/LTE/WiFi..
Depends on coverage of your network provider..
Durability is awesome till now..
Sometimes i slept on my phone (67kg)..but no crack on screen..indeed sometimes my phone jumble with my keys in the pocket.. But no scratches.. Still waiting for my phone case and tempered glass ordered from ali express..
Hope that not to drop my phone till they arrived..
Anonymous, 02 Nov 2016Absolutely don't buy these Asus phones, I'll explain why...I picked the 4GB 2.3Ghz Zenfone 2 Z... moreall? i got ze551ml for almost a year now. update to M? no issues here. maybe its on how you updated your phone. re-do your update procedure.
Anonymous, 22 Nov 2016aluminum instead of glassActually zenfone 3 deluxe is sports with Snapdragon 821 and an Adreno 530 GPU
Anonymous, 22 Nov 2016aluminum instead of glassSame thing that makes samsung a galaxy
I found here in the philippines the asus deluxe 5.5 were take so long to be available. I prefer to smartphones must be durable than a glass one thats the consumers want it! When and where it will be availble the deluxe 5.5 variants here in the philippines please asus ship here in the philippines.
chie0917, 10 Nov 2016What makes this 'deluxe'? aluminum instead of glass
update all zenfone 2 first and then release zenfone 3 , a lot of bugs and errors @ zenfone 2
chie0917, 10 Nov 2016What makes this 'deluxe'? just price of course
Those who are saying Asus is a bad brand phone because of Zenfone 2 or earlier models. Your opinion is irrelevant because those are cheap. Nowadays Zenfone 3 models are expensive for a reason, a lot better quality and performance than their predecessors.
You should really try to own 1 before being so negative, plus it's a lot cheaper since it launched. I would easily pick this as the king of mid range over any phones, for now.
Just realized that I posted the wrong link to the ASUS Zenfone 2 forum. Here's the correct link:
jahson, 06 Nov 2016asus works fine for me, tried other brands but i had the same sentiments as you.. by far asus ... moreYou're kidding, right? A note to potential buyers, please be sure to see what owners of the previous generation Zenfone 2 have to say before making any decision...
