The ZS550KL has blown me away. And purely because of that - not to mention I know Asus ALWAYS does it hardware good - I'm actually looking forward to switching to Z4 as soon as I can. The RAW support and in-phone editing is so, so handy and great in my ZS550KL!

The last flagship I used was a Z1 and I've got iPhone 7, Galazy A5 users around me and i have NOT seen such true-to-life reproduction of the photos in ZS550KL that i'm using now. This 3 Deluxe is one helluva device, particularly the camera. One caveat though - the dac inside is not on par with the one in Mi Max that i use (as my primary device); found that out through using the Sony Media Centre music app. Anyhow.
I'm thinking about buying this phone.
Are there any problems with audio quality (on headphones)? I encountered several reports about problems with sound quality (bass in particular) in reviews and on official asus website forum.
Also how about low light picture quality compared to other phones like LG G6. Is it hard to shoot photos that are not blurred?
This is one of my choices. I like the design, front fingerprint, battery, chipset, standard screen 16:9. Looking forward to buy this.
Zahin M., 18 Mar 2018Zenfone 4, of course! Battery was pretty good, 5 hours screen-on-time for browsing.Thank you. Being considered your opinion.

I don't know why some reviewer stated that Zenfone 4 has average or sadly, disappointing camera. I used this phone for about 1 month and the camera is one of the best I've ever had. Before used this phone, I used Xperia XZs, Galaxy S6 edge and Zenfone 2 ZE551ML. This phone easily nails them! Daylight was truly incredible, lowlight is almost excellent, or above average if not decent. Some reviewers such as Digital Trends stated this phone has disappointing camera. Seriously, Zenfone 3 ZE520KL/ZE552KL already has epic camera and got many praised from reviewers but do you believed Zenfone 4 ZE554KL has bad camera? The offered hardware was a big upgrade from their predecessor and flagship-class!

Performance (9/10): I got SD630 with 4GB RAM variant, zero lags or dropping frames on gaming. Smooth at all, but could be better if not much third party apps bulit-in
Battery (8.5/10): Pretty solid battery life. I got 2 days of normal usage. 6h SoT of browsing, watch videos, play music. 4h SoT of gaming. Plus it has fast charging which charged 50% from 40 minutes. Could be better if had wireless charging.
Camera [still images] (8.5/10): Camera is one of impressive feature. Daylight pictures come out detailed, punchy colours without oversaturated, maintaining lifelike colours, pretty good contrast and great dynamic range. Don't worry if you suffered with high-contrast scenes, HDR does a great job balancing light. Low-light comes about above average. Detailed and sharped but low captured light which produced little bit darker but still good. Bokeh was average, could be better if used hardware capability to assist software-managed bokeh effect. But overall great for this price range.
Camera [video recording] (8/10): 4K video was very sharp, detailed and very good colours. EIS only available on 1080p@30fps, not on 1080p@60fps and 2160p@30fps. OIS doesn't eliminate shakiness well. But 1080p videos was good enough if you want a video with good stabilizer. But one thing makes me disappointed is it has very poor dynamic range. Hope ASUS fix this via software updates.
Hope my review helped you all to make a choice. Feel free to ask anything ;-)
Guys should I go for Zenfone 5 ZE620KL or Zenfone 4 ZE554KL? I like Zenfone 4 design more than Zenfone 5 notch but Zenfone 5 maybe got better camera than Zenfone 4 which I really need. How does Zenfone 4 camera performs? On good light and low-light is it good enough? Really need help. Thanks for any reply.

Ernie, 17 Feb 2018How do I identify if I get the SD 660 variant?Download "CPU-Z" from Play Store.
I began to use Asus Zenfone 4 (ZE554KL) one month ago. But I disappointed very much when I was noticed to not use double SIM card at the same time. Before, I used Zenfone 2 more then 2 years. And, I was very pleased to use Asus Zenfone 2. It was also able to providing 2 SIM usage at the same time. I expected to have better phone but Zenfone 4 seems has less specification. It is not acceptable. ☹️
