What holds me back from buying Zenfone most is the thick side bezel. Their Zenfone 2 lines with 5.5" screen (which translates into 68mm screen width) have 77mm phone width. That means around 4.5mm width for each side bezel. #facepalm.
This Zenfone 3 Deluxe still has the same 77 width, but with 5.7" screen (translates into 70mm screen width), around 3.5mm width for each side bezel. Not that much bump, but definitelly nicer!
vishal, 11 Jun 2016I have a few suggestions for ASUS to incorporate a few improvements to this phone and they can... moreThis post was a joke, right? You must have been satirizing the typical "give me everything I want and give it to me for $99" sentiment of the average GSMarena reader.
rocky, 11 Jun 2016Dude, its optimization of the camera software. that's the answer. LOL. Sony is one of the bigg... morem not saying sony sensors are bad, m saying just because its a sony sensor that doesnt means the camera is going to be good..... coz der own smartphone's cameras are average
I have a few suggestions for ASUS to incorporate a few improvements to this phone and they can expect people to go crazy about this phone.
4 improvements to Zenfone 3 deluxe ZS570KL:
1) Incorporate FM radio- I mean, seriously, how could you even think of launching a device without an inbuilt FM radio. In this music frenzy world where people want to live with live music. I'm sure this is going to be a big NO-NO for any phone buyer.
2) Decrease the dimensions of the phone - I mean, seriously again, people want to keep the phone in their pockets and not use it as 'pudding plates'. A 5 inch screen is enough for a phone or increase it to 5.5 with the screen to body ratio being at least 72% or above. This would really help you design phones with smaller physical dimensions. Being a technical person I understand the necessity of the 'extra' body but still, the device needs to fit in our pockets 'safely'. And this is seriously very important - 'safely' - making sure that the phone doesn't fall out of our formal trouser pockets in our daily run in the life.
3) Dedicated slot for SD card: Come on!!! stop joking. What's the purpose of buying a dual sim phone if one can not use 2 sims at the same time when one slot is being used up by the memory card. Although I understand that after 128/256 GB of internal memory being available one shouldn't need an extra memory card BUT if you are providing a service then my request is please do so without making it to interfere with another service being provided. Allow the users to use both the services at the same time. Otherwise it doesn't make sense providing multiple features but with a caveat of only one can be utilized at a time.
4) Please Please Please increase the battery to 5000 mAh with fast charging:
The battery of a Zenfone has always been the biggest 'NO' factor for buyers. Increasing the battery size will attract people to try using the phone once more, to give it a try once more and once people find it actually living a life of more than a day or 2, it will be a big 'superhit' without any question. I understand that this might put restrictions on decreasing the physical dimensions of the phone but I'm sure that the technical people sitting in ASUS can obviously find for the best balance between the two BUT yes, keep note that customers would really love to own a phone with a longer battery life without taking long to get fully charged and which can fit in their pockets 'safely'.
A Zenfone from ASUS with all the specs from Zenfone 3 deluxe included along with the 4 enhancements suggested above will help ASUS gain a huge market share and increse it's popularity as well. I am an ASUS fan and would love to see a phone of the suggested kind launch in the market. All the best!
If the asus optimize the camera to their software, this will be badass. Still let's wait. So shut up and wait until the unit is available.
Many people talking about camera, this is the simple answer noobs, even if the phone is using sony camera, if not good optimize to their camera software, it will not bring out the best result. LOL.
ssbatman21, 11 Jun 2016then why their own phones suck in photography??? except z5Dude, its optimization of the camera software. that's the answer. LOL. Sony is one of the biggest supplier of camera for samsung, apple. etc.
Maddex, 10 Jun 2016Thats because Sony has the best of the bestthen why their own phones suck in photography???
Reif, 10 Jun 2016The phone has barely launched stop saying bullshit about camera.....It's not even tested prope... moremy comment is about the aperture and pixel size which is nowhere close to "amazing" in dis flagship phone.
u shud educate urself wid how a camera works.....
Reif, 10 Jun 2016most of the flagships use sony's camera that's nothing to be embarrassed about...lolThats because Sony has the best of the best
Reif, 10 Jun 2016most of the flagships use sony's camera that's nothing to be embarrassed about...lolWhatever dat phone is using baddest camera or more. The people behind the "gun" its more important than dat phone's camera. Even my Zenfone 2 makes more likes on FB than Mi4i photos (Which Mi4i famously cause has great camera on this price range). And Zenfone 3 camera's has more enchanment than Mi5 camera with same camera sensor (Sony IMX 298) like 3 Axis EIS,Color Correction Sensor (same as LG G4 and LG G5's Spectrum sensor) and 2nd gen Laser AF so you can imagine how good Zenfone 3 Deluxe camera (Sony IMX 318) because its has more price and enchanment from Sony IMX 230 like built in hybrid AF and 3 Axis EIS (Sony IMX 300's Sony Xperia Z5 has too) and has same camera hardware enchanment of Zenfone 3 so its must be great to fighting 2016 flagship smartphone's camera and no BLLSHT anymore.
