first availability date was December but now showing January. This phone is not going to success due to only late launch. Most of people were waiting but now they are planning to buy lenovo vibe P1 or Gionee Marathon M5.
Hiker, 17 Dec 20151.2 ghz is very powerful?No its not but want really make a difference unless u play 3d intensive games and apps start a little slower. The 20h browsing batttery life does make up for it though.
Rlease in January? Come on, Asus! Just release it alredy! Why would you hold back? It will be a hit! Because top daily interest has J7, which is a worse, priciest version of Zenfone MAX!. Please Asus, release it, I want it!
Ian, 16 Dec 2015I'm a bit concerned that it is not going to work on US LTE networks.. only 2G and 3G, no LTE ... moreThis phone is designed and meant for developing countries/regions like India so there's no support for US LTE bands (unless Asus decides to make a North America version)
I'm a bit concerned that it is not going to work on US LTE networks.. only 2G and 3G, no LTE and that would be crazy to have such a powerful phone without compatibility on US LTE networks
I don't know why anyone can complain about this phone. I mean, it is the most balanced smartphone on the market! It's an A-brand smartphone, it looks nice, has 5.5" HD display, which is great for reading and watching stuff (you can "see" the pixels only when you look at the tiiiiiniest letters, which is almost perfect. no need for QHD - can't see the pixels anyway, but saves a lot of stamina), has an OK processor - great with everyday tasks and OK for gaming at low or even medium settings, 2 GB RAM is more than enough, number of storage doesn't really matter, because of the microSD up to 128 GB - you choose how much you need, 13mp camera with laser autofocus - quick and has more than ok quality, 5mp selfie camera - just standard, not good or bad, Gorilla Glass 4 protection is awesome, 5000mAh - incredible and amazing, one of the biggest battries out there, all of that is working with on android 5.0 and when you look at the price and and see all those features, it's clear as a day, that this the best balanced smartphone on the whole freaking market! So for those of you, who thinks it's bad - look at the features and the price and understand, that this smartphone is actualy awesome!
Stupid Comments like "Not for gaming, not for power users".
Clearly this is aimed at mid level market - similar to Lenovo P700 / P700i / P770 / P780 that that demanded a phone that works the whole day - Not necessarily for gaming.
This is a good 2nd phone :)
phil, 12 Dec 2015not for game user.. why don't we just buy highend fone and buy POwerbank. hahahaHigh end phone and a powerbank for 10k
not for game user..
why don't we just buy highend fone and buy POwerbank. hahaha
This is not for "Power Users". Don't expect it to have almost everything that you want and pay for only a fraction of a price. Get a Flagship phone from other makers if you're looking for "Game-Spec" Phone but you need to shell out the price for it.
Please tell me is there any difference between 5.5" display with 720p and 1080p?
What i know is 1080p consuming more power than 720p
Thanx b4 sorry for my bad english
