Anonymous, 09 Jun 2016why its disply quality is weak this is the only bad thingBecause it looks pretty much the same as a 2K display (unless you're using it for VR) but it doesn't waste battery. And it's AMOLED, so it probably has better contrast and saturation than the LG G5 or the Moto X Style. 2K on a smartphone is just a big waste of battery that makes no practical difference.
Spec is great but design still sucks, but at least better than its predecessor.... WTH with that gap between bezel and screen? And its also uneven, the one below is larger and its ugly. What is the point to have thinnest bezel if it has the largest screen gap -_-)
even wid its 23 mp camera i hoghly doubt it can take pics as good as 12 mp from samsung or apple or lg.
dont get fooled by the 'megapixels'....
look at d entire xperia z series, total disaster even wid d higher mp count.....
look at its aperture, f/2.0 is on d lower side of average by 2016 standards. f/1.8 would have done the job IMHO....
and once again, the "PIXEL SIZE" is very small.
this camera is gonna work great in daylight and will die in misery when the sun goes down.....
rest of d specs look great.
ssbatman21, 07 Jun 2016whats going on with its camera....???? the pixel size is ridiculously small, whats the use of... moreugh wrong. This is alot of megapixels for a smartphone. The Samsung s4 has 13mp. Z3D has 10 more, the camera is not going to be awful whatsoever with a Sony sensor.
Micro SD card 256Gb + Internal M 256Gb
Total : More than "400Gb" is Excellent for me.
" Dual stereo 5 Magnet speakers "
alas, really alas just one single 5 Magnet speaker in Z3D.
But, overall Z3D is Best choice.
In the end : dear Asus don't forget !!
Updates (os also monthly security)
Sleek design, 6GB RAM, 256GB storage... I could run 5 whatsapp, 5 viber, 5 skype accounts simultaneously! Who cares about not so perfect camera... I would love to see it with Windows 10 though, probably it will be possible... :))) And its quality that I love most about Asus...no matter what product they make it is probably the best performance/quality/money ratio in whole electronics world!

Until it is proven that Sony can actually bend the laws of physics, then a small pixel size will indeed produce noisy photos in low-light.
TheNote4User, 06 Jun 2016CPU is the heartbeat of a smartphone ..but without the help of GPU" CPU is dead slow
I think this is a great mobile and I go to buy this, the people are so stupid take a iphone or samsung for a lot of money and dont say nathing if they are a shiiiit. All are the same only the big publicity and marketing of the big companies make you to thing uaaaaauuuu. I'm a iphone user and I'm very desapointment with it for a lot of things and lm go to change it. Dont see the marketing i have a samsung phone and im change it. The Asus make a very good phones for the price and im go to take one.

the pixel size is ridiculously small, whats the use of... more By SONY:
Sony Announces a New Type 1/2.6 22.5 Megapixel Exmor RSÂ™, the Industry's First*1 Stacked CMOS Image Sensor with Built-in Hybrid Autofocus and 3-Axis Electronic Image Stabilization.
1. The industry's smallest unit pixel size at 1.0μm, achieving compact size (type 1/2.6) while realizing 22.5 effective megapixels high resolution
As smartphones grow ever thinner, so too are image sensors growing increasingly more compact. In line with this trend, Sony has developed a miniscule 1.0μm pixel sensor that, despite its small size, realizes high image quality. To accomplish this, Sony employed manufacturing technology that improves light utilization efficiency, as well as circuit design technology that eliminates noise, a root cause of deterioration in image quality. With this innovation, Sony has realized an image sensor that delivers high quality images, while also boasting small optical size and a high resolution of 22.5 megapixels. Night shots have long been a weak point for the compact cameras used in smartphones, with the lack of light translating into excessive visual noise. The IMX318 addresses this weakness and realizes beautiful photography in nighttime conditions.
2. The industry's first*1 image sensor with built-in hybrid AF, as fast as 0.03 seconds*2, and 3-axis electronic image stabilization
Hybrid AF, which merges image plane phase detection AF with contrast detection AF, has previously been realized through the combination of an image sensor and an application processor. But with the IMX318, Sony has created the industry's first*1 stacked CMOS image sensor with hybrid AF built into the sensor's internal signal processor. The IMX318 leverages Sony's high-speed AF technology that has been honed over many years, boasting an AF as fast as 0.03 seconds*2 (and as fast as 0.017 seconds when shooting video at 60fps). With this power in hand, the user can capture those decisive moments reliably in focus, whether shooting stills or video.
3-axis electronic image stabilization for video
With the IMX318, Sony has also created the industry's first*1 stacked CMOS image sensor with image stabilization functionality built into its internal signal processor. This sensor leverages the image stabilization technology that Sony has cultivated over its years developing cameras, realizing smooth 4K*3 videos with little camera shake by making effectively use of the signal output obtained from the external 3-axis (pitch, yaw, and roll) gyro sensor*4. Sony's unique image stabilization technology incorporated into the IMX318 corrects not only camera shake, but also lens distortion, making for more beautiful videos. Furthermore, because image stabilization is achieved by processing within the hardware of the image sensor, less power is used than when it is accomplished by software processing in the external application processor. Since it enables smooth video shooting, this image sensor is suited for incorporation into not only smartphones, but also a variety of other products that tend to generate substantial camera shake, such as aerial drones used for image capture.
3. 4K and high frame rate video recording, through high-speed communications leveraging the latest MIPI specifications
Sony elected to adopt the MIPI (Mobile Industry Processor Interface) Alliance's latest C-PHY 1.0/D-PHY 1.2 specifications for this image sensor's interface. With this interface, the IMX318 is able to achieve more power efficient and faster data transmission from the image sensor to the application processor. As a result, even at the high resolution of 22.5 megapixels, transmission is realized for all pixels at 30fps. This enables seamless switching between high resolution video and still image photography, realizing the best of both worlds. Since the image sensor can transmit greater-than-4K resolution images for all pixels to the application processor, the user can capture 22.5 megapixel still images even while in the middle of recording video in 4K*3 at 30fps.
