Does anyone using it can tell their experience with Jio Sim? I have read some old comments where the battery life and signal is poor with 4G, I am about to buy the device but need confirmation on it. Also, I have read that the Wifi signal drops too much with distance, is that true?
Can someone tell me the avg. screen on time of this device...?
Looking for true response!!! Right now I have Nokia 7 + and would this 5z can satisfy in terms of camera and battery?
Midnight blue or meteor silver?? Which one do u prefer?? Better looking??

Which version of Corning Gorilla Glass does the Asus Zenfone 5z ZS620KL have?
Darkshadow, 05 Oct 2018personally ram and storage not that importance for me, since both phones support sd card..btw ... moreThen best you go for the note8. ItÂ’s a way better package. The extras you get on the note8 are worth sacrificing the extra ram, storage and chip. In my country the note 8 is $250 more than the 5z(8gb ram + 256gb storage) model. I got the 5z with 6gb + 64gb config for roughly $400, which made the difference in price with note 8 even bigger.
Bottom line, if you gots $550 then get the note 8 over the 5z.

Yeah i agree with you
Super AMOLEDs are way better in temrs of color accuracy, sharpness, clarity and blacks.
enjoy your new phone and tell samsung users about your XP. :)

Teddy G, 05 Oct 2018Since youÂ’ve mentioned ram and storage being more for the price and if that is of importance ... morepersonally ram and storage not that importance for me, since both phones support sd card..btw I'm frm Malaysia..in Malaysia official set that asus brought in are 6/128gb price around 450usd, 8/256gb around 550usd and the latest price for official new note 8 exynos 555usd (all prices estimated after conversion frm Malaysian money to usd)..my friends also told me to buy the note 8..even though it's last year model and the performance not that sluggish it's still pretty fast..plus the note 8 camera slightly better, super amoled, and ip68rating hmmmm

Anonymous, 03 Oct 2018I can't see how you can make a fair comparison. Both phones are for a different group of audie... moreyup that's my point..it's hard for me to choose..note 8 have ip68 rating, super amoled, better camera (mostly said) and Spen..zen5z more ram, more storage, latest chipset and can shoot 4k60fps..price matter is only the same..sigh
tjeco, 05 Oct 2018Does the silver turn pinkish in the sun?Yeah a little.
but it's not visible.
Darkshadow, 02 Oct 2018Zenfone 5z or Samsung note 8??? Since the price of z5z 8gb ram 256gb storage same as note 8 6/... moreSince youÂ’ve mentioned ram and storage being more for the price and if that is of importance then yea go for the 5z. If youÂ’re looking to compare both models as a complete package, its a bit more tough. IÂ’m using the 5z and IÂ’m plenty happy. In my country the note 8 and the 5z are nowhere close to the same price. If they were i might actually lean to the note 8 even for lesser ram and storage. The samsung camera is slightly better than the 5z and IÂ’m sure itÂ’ll only get better with the pie update. Also the UI on the Samsung feels more cohesive, ZenUI is almost there. But i do feel ZenUI is not to heavy.
To conclude, for the same price IÂ’d recommend you get the note 8 even for the lesser ram and storage. Last years chip in there is plenty fast too.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2018I might be wrong on this but my previous experience with the Zenfone 2 was that they are made ... moreI don't have prior experience with Zenfone 2 but from what I can find online about Zenfone 5z, different models were made for different regions and they have different LTE bands. If you bought a 256GB ZS620KL model, it is pretty much guaranteed that you won't have 4G LTE connection in the States (under AT&T). It's confusing because even though all models (apart from those in the Indian market) were marked as ZS620KL, they have different band support.
Cyclonite, 03 Oct 2018The thing about Zenfone 5z is that the one you want is probably different from the one you can... moreI might be wrong on this but my previous experience with the Zenfone 2 was that they are made as "universal" as they can because they have many LTE bands. On that front, I believe it shouldn't matter where the phone was purchased. However, there might be software installed by other telcos in the phone which was for the LTE band but may not work as well elsewhere.
