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!
I want to see the antutu benchmark score of the deluxe special edition beasty SD 821....that process with 2.4 and 2.0gig clock speed...that's very powerful CPU in the market right now......I can't wait to see it in action...

Anonymous, 02 Nov 2016I can answer you. I got both 5.5" 1080p and 5.5" 1440p (2K) screen smartphone, both are equal... moreThat's why instead of the normal mobile phone VR headsets I use wired HDMI driven VR headset with my phone via a USB Type-C to HDMI adapter. They are way better than normal mobile phone VR headsets.
For the one who wants it in US Variant.. Amazon have resisted their ZS570KL.. They are available to ship it out in 1-2 days on Prime... I feel like I want to cancel Bhphotovideo order and order through amazon... The ad thing is Bhphoto doesn't charge tax for CA vs amazon does.. Bhphoto will not start shipping till Nov 10
AnonD-603427, 30 Oct 2016Never said 5.7 inch full HD amoled wasn't good enough buddy. Read again, I was just saying I ... moreI can answer you.
I got both 5.5" 1080p and 5.5" 1440p (2K) screen smartphone, both are equally sharp, small text are as sharp, and icons remain same size too, typical no difference in normal usage.
The only different is in VR (Virtual Reality), where 1440p screen on VR is way superior.
So, the key different would only be noticed is in VR.
I test with screen on 6" 1080p and 6.44" 1080p too, all also don't have any sharpness issue compare to the 2K screen.
Well, other different are the screen quality. Different phone is equipped with different quality screen, where some screen's viewing angle and contrast are higher, some screen colour are more saturated.
