There is no more Asus...
Now it's IPSus !
A flagship WITHOUT a screen...
A freak !
I’m sure the screen is amazing.
Sadly, I’m moving from an iPhone 6 and hence I want oled for once.. always-on display would be nice. This wouldn’t matter but now I really want an oled.
No IP rating
No mechanism as oneplus 7. What happens if I somehow drop the phone during a selfie photo? *camera brakes*
No optical zoom.
Not nearly as good in lowlight as Huawei phones.
Would be my main reasons for not picking this phone.. But if I drop my P30 and it brakes or flow with the river then sure.. Zenfone is a guaranteed opponent.
I was waiting for this to be OLED with under display fingerprint scanner. I'm somewhat really disappointed. Other than that, great phone.
Waiting for Zenfone 6z features. Hope they go with dot notch or pop up camera. I will instantly buy it.
Anonymous, 16 May 2019If ASUS made this with an Amoled, they would have had a KILLER phone... I would have bought it... moreThis keeps the manufacturing cost lower compared to putting on an OLED panel. All-screen phone, SD 855 and 5000 mAh battery for less than $550 ? It's a win for me
Is it really USB 2.0 ? Maybe an error in the spec sheet?
I transfer a lot of data using the usb-port.
This is a total no-go
Does it have a multi-colour LED notification light?

I would have bought it... moreActually good quality lcd is much better than amoled.And seriously amoled have burn issues if you dont know i have experience i have samsung A5(2017) and its close to a year old it has burn issue like grey color becomes greenish tint.it destroys your whole experience and there is no warranty for burn in issues.And my 3 year old device lcd screen is perfect and now i use my old device for streaming youtube,movies etc....And replacing amoled display is crazy expensive.It will cost like half the price of phone itself.
Indeed, no AMOLED is instant skip for a flagship.
For me now Oppo Reno Zoom 10x or Numbia Red Magic 3.
I hope it won't have the Max Pro M2 auto-dimming problem, where the display is dimming in some apps even with auto-brightness off. It would be a waste of a nice phone. That besides the white balance concerns that I have. (lack of settings to compensate for aggressive blue tint)
PS: It has the screen temperature setting, just seen it in a picture of the phone on the site.
What about waterproof features? Nothing was mentioned...
From my experiece with Smartisan R1
DCI-P3 100% + HDR10 on LCD = Great LCD Screen.
This phone looks solid for now. Price is good too, 499Euros. Too bad for the lack of IP-rating...also hope the cam is resistent.
I'm a fan of LCD due to not having to worry about burn-in. I care most about color reproduction and maximum brightness. It looks like there will be a variant that supports ALL of the U.S.'s LTE bands on T-Mobile (Band 2,4,12). The pricing is ridiculous. It is making thousand dollar flagships look silly. AND...it is near stock Android and retains the headphone jack,. This could be steal.
usb 2.0 - no hdmi output
NO THANKS !
