Unless you absolutely want a screen bigger than the Mi Max's 6.4", I'd say go for the Mi Max. The Zenfone 3 Ultra is WAAAAY overpriced for what it has to offer (almost equal to Mi Max in specs, features and build quality). Get a 64 GB or 128 GB Mi Max at half the price of the Zenfone 3 Ultra. You won't regret choosing the Mi Max over this overpriced phone. What was Asus thinking? If this were only slightly higher in price than the Mi Max, then I would definitely recommend this over the Mi Max for those who want a screen size bigger than 6.4", but at two times the price of the Mi Max? Forget it. Not worth double the Mi Max price.
It's 1 of the most overpriced phone in the market. Look at their zenfone zoom, price drop to less than half in less than 6mths since the launching, it's now reflect sort of the actual price, still it will go down further.
So don't fall for the same mistake as the zoom owner. You can get a far more better phone at this price.
It should only be price about the same to mi max as the both offer 99% of the same specs. Or maybe some ppl just like to pay more so they feel the are above the average.
BTW Asus phones always come with lousy cameras, you will note that in low light or movement.

Here in Manila I got mine yesterday at Voice Solutions in Theater Mall, Greenhills. So far, they are the cheapest that I found with the Asus warranty. I got mine for P29,432. If you go to the mall, the SRP is P32,995. I could really say that it was worth the premium price I paid for it. Before I bought it, I was so hesitant to pay for more than 25k for it. So, I settled for the Xiaomi Mi Max. A day after having the Mi Max I still wanted to buy the Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra. I thought the Mi Max was big enough already but I wanted a much bigger one. The 6.8" size of the Ultra is just perfect for me. It's really the size that I want for a "phablet." Watching Youtube & Netflix on the Ultra is a such a treat. The sound quality of the speakers is much better than all the gadgets (iphone, samsung tablet, ipad) I owned before. The only downside I have noticed with the zenfone 3 Ultra is the camera on lowlight. It's not as good as my LG V10 camera and my Iphone 6 Plus. But, It's not a big deal for me because I am not using it as my main camera phone. I still prefer my LG V10 for all my photo requirements. If you really like the social media, You Tube and movies, this phablet is really a must-have for you. After spending almost 15k for the Mimax, I have no regrets spending another almost 30k for the Zenfone 3 Ultra. It was really the phone I wanted when I first saw it on photo and video months ago. I'm glad I really pushed for it. Now, my techie side is very much satisfied with this phablet. Next obsession will be the LG V20﻿.
AnonD-578370, 30 Aug 2016Really people? Look for the tech reviews...this phone has EXCELLENT speakers, a great camera ... moreI bought the Asus to see if it would be any better than my big screen Sony Xperia Z Ultra, which I love, but which is also 3.5 years old. The Asus build quality is excellent, and it is just as pocketable as the Sony. However, the Sony remains one of the high points in industrial design as applied to phones, so I'm going to keep using it. The Asus is functionally equivalent to me, but the Sony is still cooler.

Super crisp rear camera very detail even you zoom in picture quality not degrade.
Screen color is excellent is look super amoled,
Sound quality very crisp and loud,
Gaming exeperience very smooth zero lag,
Front camera below average, not so good for selfie, low quality sensor its look like 2mp not 8mp, i think asus made interpolated @ front camera....
It's has black bezel side by side @screen,

Compare the camera, Asus camera for this product is superb as compared with low quality XA, hahahaha. I'm not against Sony because I bought Xperia Z5 Premium and M5 both products have good camera quality.
The 8.4 inches Huawei M3 with H. Kardon speakers is far better than this phone
and the price is cheaper!
mi max is better than this in all aspects dont buy this shit very high price mobile. go for mi max
i don't have this phone ......but hope it will good......................
AnonD-576559, 26 Aug 2016Will this runs on ATT 4G ?I m sure it would. I am using ZenFone zoom and has no problems on AT & T.
Since its release.. i have been comparing this phone with other leading phones...
However its cpu its not maximum as that would be desired like snappd820; so that doesnt mean that thats it. When we review this in whole we can see that in fact there is no any other phone which is even in close proximity. E.g the 6.8 screen combination with 23 mp camera , further more 140% more audio, 4600 MAh massive battery, and still 4 GB RAM, also after all > Octa core 4x1.8+4x1.4 snappdragon 652 is absolutly making this phone much more ahead then all phones. Thats why its price is very reasonable.
Surprisingly cheaper than the junk phones such as galaxy and note sevens which goes backwards like reducing cams etc. or latest iphones with only focus to central processors as if else specs are less important thing which obviously consumers all around are persuaded.
