AnonD-416331, 04 Jun 2016RAM is awesome but the processor is kinda bad, dual core @ 2.15 GHz? make that a quad and i'll... moreWhat? check Snapdragon 820 on the spec sheet, with Kryo cores, even though 820 is only dual core, it is the fastest SOC in the market.

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.

the pixel size is ridiculously small, whats the use of... moreWhat do you mean small pixel? men, 23MP rear camera shooter, with 4 axis OIS, Zenfone 3 Deluxe is powered by the latest IMX318 image sensor hat will be use also on the coming Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
The pixel size? 1 µm pixel size is not the MP count.
Sensor size is useful for getting an idea of how much space in the smartphone camera module is consumed by the sensor, but less useful for gauging total light collection as megapixel counts vary between smartphones. This is where pixel size comes in, giving a direct measure of how large the individual photodetectors are in the CMOS sensor.
for you to understand read this article:
For your reference. :)
Yes But have you seen the sample images? Don't be fooled by the size. This baby does low light photography better that an iPhone 6S Plus.
read this dpreview write up:
Design definitely has improvement than the previous version, but still... I don't like it one bit. But the value is great, so I can still fine with it. Problem is the size... 5.7" is too big, won't fit in pocket, and also 3000mAh battery will drain real fast.
Rather than slimmer side design with thick center, I wonder why doesn't they just make it flat and fill the room with bigger battery...?! 7.5mm thickness is still absolutely fine and 40 grams weight increase for another 3000mAh battery won't make any different.

whats going on with its camera....????
the pixel size is ridiculously small, whats the use of 23 mp sensor then????
even galaxy s4 which is more den 3 years old had bigger pixels than this.....
the camera is going to be terrible.
rest looks very good.
they should also do somethng abt that black bezel, its ugly.
Now i just wish Asus would give some sort of software gurantee on their phones like "all phones will be upgraded to 2 following versions of android at least, once the hardware can run it smoothly"
if not, make a bootloader unlocker so people can load their own OS, CyanogenOS, etc.
dontmatter, 06 Jun 2016and 3000mAh again....in past few years we raised from 512mb to 6gb RAM, from 1 core to 10, fro... moreIt's actually from 200 ppi to 800 ppi :)
My 3000s mAh phones survive a day or more in moderate use, and hit 8 ~ 12 hours screen time on.
I think it's all about the battery management software?
But extra capacity is no bad either. As long as you don't mind the additional weight to your phone.
