Phrancis, 23 May 2019It's missing an AMOLED screen, IR blaster, optical zoom, and it's kinda ugly from an industria... moreWhat do you expect for $500 ? This phone was aimed at upper mid range price, but with a fast cpu.
If you want those extra features, you can pay about $800 or more for another brand.
For those who are interested - SAR level (EU) for this phone is Head: 1,57 W/kg; Body: 0,98 W/kg. I got the info directly from Asus Germany.
Anonymous, 24 May 2019This phone won't perform well in the market. Just wait and seeI said it will do very well...
there's nothing wrong with it, it could well be a flagship killer !!!
If they do release a "Z" version, I would like it to have an OLED screen.
This phone won't perform well in the market. Just wait and see
anyone know when this will be released in the US?
It's missing an AMOLED screen, IR blaster, optical zoom, and it's kinda ugly from an industrial design standpoint, but wow! The Spec/value ratio is amazing. I hope we can buy it in the US soon.
Too bad, do not support 5G 😢
92% screen-to-body ratio

Mikey, 21 May 2019ASUS just needs to make a special version with these things to make it the world's best phone ... moreASUS is holding back because they flopped on Zenfone 2, and didn't recover since Zenfone 3, where they actually has released the AMOLED version of Zenfone 3 Deluxe, but cost almost the same as Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, which lost their edge, sales is so poor until their Zenfone 4 Pro doesn't get launched in many country.
They makes serious comeback with last year Zenfone 5, Zenfone Max Pro M1, and ROG phone.
So, all your wishlist actually depend on the sales of this Zenfone 6. If the sales still poor, then no need talk about any special version.
Do remember they are not some big smartphone player like Samsung, Huawei/Honor, OPPO/Vivo/Oneplus/Realme, Xiaomi/Redmi, not even ZTE.
They are more like Motorola.
Funny to read comments at here.
Those aiming to blame the phone shortcoming forget to look at the phone price, which actually almost half price of top flagship.
Then, when the price jack up, those will blame this phone just cost as much as Samsung and iPhone, complain not worth it.
Just pick the one that you like, then just seal the deal, because every smartphone has shortcoming.
Anonymous, 22 May 2019Lol redmi k20 has less features. What better specs? Compare it your self than your know which phone have more features. It useless for me to write it here.
Except water resistant everything is perfect. Specially front cam is a brilliant idea. Hopefully Asus should add water resistant option in their next flagship.
Taiwan Brand good
How calculate GSMArena the screen to body ratio? Asus says that the screen to body ratio is 92%, GSMArena says that it's just 83.8%. Why the difference is so big? Thank you!
