Samsung User, 30 Jun 2016Its price is around Rs 16,500 . Do not compare cheap crap china redmi note 3 with Asus zenfone... moreYou sir are a total noob. Redmi Note 3 uses a Samsung s5k3p3 module for the camera. Its the same ISOCELL sensor used in Galaxy S6. The software is not optimized to use it fully. PS. nothing in a Xiaomi is Chinese or cheap, even the gyro and other sensors are from Bosch/QTI, battery cells from LG and so on.
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2016this phone is not futureproof because it doesn't have nfc and VoLTE support -_-nfc is opinionated and VoLTE will be rolled in updates.

Anonymous, 03 Jul 2016Not entirely true-Zenfone Laser 2 series uses qualcomm.Which part is wrong ?
Zf2 laser supported by cyanogenmod officially , so it has a good support with a nice ram ...
And about battery consumption at all in my opinion qualcomm is better than intel and snapdragon 625 is one of the best chipsets for this phone !
Why ? I know it is not as powerful as 652 but it has both performance and low battery consumption which 652 doesn't have !
So asus uses 625 in ZF3 (3000 mAh battery) and 652 in ZF3 utra (4600 mAh battery) ...
Is the battery enough to last a day.?
Also what about the second sim slot its like either a sim or memory card.. Not done.

Samsung User, 30 Jun 2016Its price is around Rs 16,500 . Do not compare cheap crap china redmi note 3 with Asus zenfone... morePlus, don't forget the brand name... ASUS is one of the best PC hardware manufacturer from notebook, monitor, motherboard, graphic card and even sound card. They always make the best quality.
The only reason why ASUS has cheaper price with better value for now is because they are newcomer and they need their name to be recognized in smartphone industry. Expect the price to go up when they gain more popularity, just like their current high end PC hardwares.
I'd go for ASUS every time than cheap as* with questionable quality from the new company Xiaomi.
