Asus phones are rubbish! Go read the Zenfone forums if you do not believe me! Asus never have any solutions to any problems except to bring it into a service centre. Every updates brings more problems to the phone and they have the nerve to blame the users.
TecRaider, 22 Sep 2017sorry to disappoint you but that 500 Euro is just for sd630 , only asian market get sd660 , so... moreWhat?!? 500EURO for SD630 variant? In Malaysia, SD630 variant only costs 420EURO (RM2099) and the price for SD660 will be estimately around 480EURO (RM2499). Come to Malaysia for lower price :D

Improved RAM management which supports LPDDR4 type, and just little enhaned speed and features on the chipsets. And yeah, just wait for the review of Zenfone 4.
TecRaider, 22 Sep 2017if that was true , then it should be better and perfect with sd660 variant but The price seems... moreYeah it is bad choice from ASUS putting the SD 630 variant for the most market. I heard only Indonesia get the Snapdragon 660 on South East Asia for now, Malaysia and Philippines (even India too) get the Snapdragon 630 version.
Well, Cortex A53 on Snapdragon 630 may give you more battery life comparing Kyro 260 core on Snapdragon 660 which is Perform based CPU core but still is not like Zenfone 3 Zoom that you get the 5000 mah battery for massive battery life.
So IMO, I think Zenfone 3 Zoom is more worthed than Zenfone 4 SD 630 version. But may we look the review first of Zenfone 4.
TecRaider, 22 Sep 2017if that was true , then it should be better and perfect with sd660 variant but The price seems... moreThe price maybe far higher on SD660 compared with SD630 variant since there's some difference features between SD630 and SD660 variant. Maybe around 500 EURO for SD660 variant. But it's still reasonable price for 'premium mid-range' phones.

Watch it on YouTube which named "Zenfone 4 Design Story", the video mentioned that the phone has Dual Pixel PDAF. So it's true, combination of Dual Pixel PDAF with OIS would be greater than your X4 I think...

for my perspective , I did alot of search in all categories , and that was my opinion that moto x4 is better that zf4 ( for alot reasons price , stock android ...) despite that there are some similarities

Zenfone 4 also uses Dual Pixel AF and works together with OIS. Do you really have X4 and ZF4 on your hands? Or you just compared it based on specs you read anywhere?
In some youtube reviews or previews, the screen is introduced as IPS screen. Are there two variants of screen as the CPU, namely IPS for SD630 and AMOLED for SD660? Can you clarify that?
Mohd Sharizalay, 15 Sep 2017guys, is this zenfone 4 good ? im looking for new phoneSeriously Good. ;)
Anonymous, 16 Sep 2017really?? zenfone 4 has imx362 f1.8 with 4axis image stabilization, tri tech focusing system wh... moresorry bro , but I already know what ZP4 , you get wowed by primary cam but you Forget to compare the second cam , Try to compare and you'll see that wide angle cam on X4 a way better with PDAF for second, and take a look at overall camera front (able to shoot 4k ) to rear and you'll see that x4 is better in term of camera regardless the lacks of OIS but Dual Pixels AF is much needed
about Audio asus always impelement DTS system on all products so nothing news despite the lacks of waterproof
but the important is UI System that is near to Stock android and Price tag
TecRaider, 15 Sep 2017try to compare it with Moto X4 , the camera system in X4 is a way better with Dual Pixel AF ,... morereally?? zenfone 4 has imx362 f1.8 with 4axis image stabilization, tri tech focusing system which is top rated at this moment. same wide angle les available as moto x4. x4 doesnt even have ois and same primary camera as moto z2 play. zp4 even has dts certified audio. finally everything comes down to pricing. moto x4 will be android one so if its cheaper will be better otherwise except ip68 zp4 is better in every possible way.
This phone for me 9/10 because
2.THE PROCESSOR FOR A LOW COST PHONE
why i like to this phone is first the storage. Guys the RAM of this phone is 4GB 100% good for hardcore gamers second the processor. Guys Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is the besy processor on any android than mediatek and corvex why? Guys Snapdragon is used in samsung galaxy s8 also in physical usage snapdragon is the best battery optimizer and make lag less while mediatek all local low cost phone has mediatex as cpu chip but its worst and for me a trash processor third is the battery. Guys zenfone 4 is the best battery low cost phone with 3,300 mAh compare to vivo V5 with 3,050 mAh but vivo V5 is pretty expensive than ZenFone 4 and last is the glass guys gorilla glass 4 is soo thick glass guys that put in a low cost phone
The only i hate to zenfone 4 is the QUAD CORE processor is ASUS BIAS? Why they didnt it make to octa core or hexa core or something??
