Handsomeness Alexis, 23 Nov 2016except iphone 7.. hahahaThe bezels on the Xperia XZ actually complement the phone cause its part of the metal unibody, but the bezels on the Zenfone 3 Deluxe literally don't blend in with the metal as it's black, but the entire phone is not black. I actually don't care about the thickness of the bezels, I care about how much it "complements" the phone, in which this phone does a terrible job at (this goes for all Xiaomi phones and some other Chinese brands too).
It's Great it's just that the Battery is just 3K ?! and it's not yet Water Proof :(
this phone is awesome just look at all the specs. Now this is what I call a smart phone
I actually waiting for ASUS ZenFone 3 deluxe to arrive in Brunei but it haven't since it release is already like 4 to 5 month i think. Usually around this time all those phone that released in us already have in Brunei.
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2016Look at iPhone 7 Plus,LG V20 and Xperia XZ bezels first.except iphone 7.. hahaha
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2016Look at iPhone 7 Plus,LG V20 and Xperia XZ bezels first.YES, and they don't have an internal memory of 128gb and 256gb.
please GSMArena, post your review about this phone, as I would like to know the Basemark OS II and Basemark X ratings, and the endurance rating of the battery.
NeonHD, 13 Nov 2016What the hell is wrong with their design team? They seemed to nail absolutely EVERYTHING ab... moreI agree it would look better without them, and when I first picked it up, I noticed the bezel that one time, but after having the phone for 2 weeks, I had honestly forgotten about it and never noticed it again until I read your comment just now. I literally thought, oh yeah, there is a black bezel...lol. I assure you, you will quickly forget all about it.
This phone is utterly amazing. If you are contemplating this phone but hesitating, I highly recommend just pulling the trigger as everything runs butter smooth. The screen looks amazing and the camera takes excellent pictures in regular as well as very low light (which was my concern before pulling the trigger on my preorder of the US Special Edition). It compares favorably to the quality of the Pixel's camera so they must've fixed any issues in updates before they shipped mine. Fingerprint works very nice as well. There is a black bezel around the screen, but the only times I noticed it were before I bought it, the first time I turned it on, then I completely forgot about it for these last 2 weeks until I just now read a comment complaining about it. Sure it would be nice to have it hidden by the aluminum frame, but in actual practice, my eyes don't see it at all as my eyes never go there. The beautiful display completely draws my eyes away from that bezel. Even with my more powerful processor, my battery lasts completely through the day and will still have charge the next morning without charging. We will see how that lasts over the life of the device, but I was astonished to see how long it lasted. With an Antutu that tops out at 160K (about 140K for the SD820 version), 256GB, a stunning AMOLED display, excellent performing camera, and a micro SD up to at least 128GB (that may actually top out at the 2TB since another owner tried a 256GB card on the US SD820 version and it worked perfectly), there isn't another phone right now that delivers on all the hardware all around that this does. Then as added bonus, I didn't know I was going to love ZENUI 3.0 so much. I'm not claiming to be a launcher expert, but this is the best I have ever used, and it is fully customizable. This is everything I want in a phone, and of the things I would want to be better (QHD for better VR and no bezel), they are very little quibbles on a phone that stands above all the rest. The choice is yours but I can assure you, this choice won't leave you disappointed.
XD, 08 Nov 2016I want to see the antutu benchmark score of the deluxe special edition beasty SD 821....that ... moreThe special edition hits 160,000 on antutu with everything disabled. 156,000 with everything I use from Asus enabled, which is quite a bit.
Which is better Asus Zenfone 3 ultra or Asus Zenfone 3 deluxe zs570kl. Besides the battery life span?
What the hell is wrong with their design team?
They seemed to nail absolutely EVERYTHING about its design except for those big ugly black bezels.
I might've even been persuaded to think that it's the best premium quality smartphone ever, if it weren't for those stupid bezels.
I love asus phones and tablets. Im using zenfone 2 deluxe for a year now and its still working like the first time i bought it. No lag no hang no battery issues. Compare with other brands who suffers lag, hangs, and battery issues after 3 to 6 months. keep up the good work asus!
