Just compare with 1520 Nokia two years old soc 810 ppi, camera. Don't forget it's screen size 6". Perfect as a fist. Still can get free 300$ brand. Forget and WAIT FOR SURFACE SERIES BY MID NEXT YEAR.
I don't prefer to try the 1st upgraded model of any product, so i will be waiting for the updated version of that one
The cooling tubes all around cell inside is a blatant example of 810 chiset fame. Just be realistic and wait, price will come down at stabilize at 500$, till then wait in anticipation of heating issues. I will wait for successor of 1520 as 1550 mid next year. With 830 and 8 Gb Ram. Masterpiece. Plus aluminum body.
The Beast on smart phone and PC both has arrived in Â“OneÂ” the best of Microsoft but price is so high.
ananthbhat, 29 Nov 2015"2 quad core process with 2 ghz n 1.5 ghz... A total of 3.5 ghz.. "
uh! it isn't a math probl... moreThe gaming benchmark test i mentioned was done by switching and playing two hd games simultaneously.. S6 started lagged and stucked wen switching from one to another.. Zenfone 2 able to play the games simultaneously without any lag.. There is a video of this in youtube.. Go n watch... Fanboy.. Also if u compare s6 with 950xl.. It don't have sd support ..only 16mp camera.. 2500mah battery.. 950xl has 3340mah... Samsung dropped the price of all s6 variants after a while.. How?? And y??
If they can drop the price like this then surly the quality of the phone is cheap..
ananthbhat, 29 Nov 2015"2 quad core process with 2 ghz n 1.5 ghz... A total of 3.5 ghz.. " uh! it isn't a math probl... moreOo ya.. Then how s6 failed the gaming benchmark test aganist zenfone 2(4gb) which is powered by intel atom.. Also the Samsung sales has dropped now.. And one more thing that Samsung will return to Qualcomm chipset for s7 ..you know the reason.. Also wen s6 edge was launched it has a price of 50k INR.. For a 16mp camera device with no sd card support.. If u r a Samsung fan boy go n comment on Samsung forum..
dibya, 04 Nov 2015guys please check out this phone size is 5.7inch it means 5 and 7 the two oddno. so it showes ... moredibya => 5 alphabets. And you are very odd (and not the slightest in a good way) indeed! ;)
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2015The cost was tooo high . .
If it was at a reasonable price you can achieve our hearts.
Init... moreWhy not ask Honda to launch the new generation of Civic for 2L while you are at it, so that more "middle and poor people can afford it"? ;) If you want a high end config at the ridiculous price point you are asking for (heck, not even OnePlus went below 25k with slightly lower config!), please wait for the Chinese folks like Xiaomi to launch them (yes, they are launching windows based devices, ROM for existing ones). Mainstream companies simply wont reduce at that rate.
Asking at reliance digital, I'm told that the price will be 42k with the display dock (worth 6.5k) bundled along! That puts it for less than the S6 (the edge variant is the one this goes heads up against, which is close to 50k the last time I checked). The S6 was being sold for 38k. They've reduced the price after making a good amount of profit off the devices sold. Microsoft simply can't afford to do the same without going into loss! They need to recover the cost (R&D, support, stores, devs and actual manufacturing and logistic cost) before they price it that low. This is one of the reason the "branded" phones are cheaper.
Ever seen a Xiaomi outlet? ;)

uh! it isn't a math problem that you are adding them up! It follows the "big.LITTLE" architecture. At a time it will shift to on of the two sets depending on type of load. Again, they are NOT to be added up!
"Also Samsung s6 uses exynos chipset..worst processor of its kind.."
A very absurd statement. It is an ARM architecture based SoC, and in this class, it is the best performing SoC in the market! Please link the benchmark that you claim shows the superiority of the zenphone! it is WAY behind the S6 in EVERY single test!

Have only one concern left. I live in Canada but I develop business in Asia. If I get a message or call from. My Canadian fiends or just even an advertising call I will be bothered dying the night in Asia as that time is daytime in N orth America. And the other ways around too. Can I switch the secondary cad off while I am in the county of the main cad? The time difference is my big concern only.
sarfraz123, 21 Nov 2015iam waiting to grab......fed up with android software phonesMine is already purchased should arrive next monday, im also tired off android have a Nexus 5 and it seems like every update brings more problems to the phone.
After the initial month from updating the problems start apps crash , memory dumps batery drains is everytime the same.
I agree with 1520 specs same as ever, but windows phones are hard to resell. no maeject it's means net loss of investment.. Nothing new in body Lumia copy copied till its become redundant. Should have changed body to all aluminum or glass mix. Waist of time and money. Have much beter experience with Sam's s4 s5 s6 N3 N4 all enjoyed and red old at half price within year use. Loss and latest spec both enjoyed.
Latest windows 1.4% all over world use, maybe it's hardware be latest but processor 810 snapdragon is always risky to anticipate. Dislodged Sony BB HTC all have shifted to media tech Taiwanese or Chinese chips. Had 800$ 1520 6" set all too good, but when time to change it begged for sale at100$ ONLY. Why it's windows! Just get a second hand at200 from market it's equally good in all respects include upgrade to win 10. Beaware😊

Guys; the phone is worth a wait.. An octa-core WP us al that u need to last for years without having to worry about getting a new device...i have been using a Lumia 1020 for an year and a half now... No issues at all... Ben able to get the best shots every time... Continuum is another extremely handy feature...3430 mah battery is like wow!!! Also since android and iOS stupid can be tin on wp10 ; the one drawback of a WP is now resolved;!!
