38K for this thing??
This POS phone with POS camera costs 600$???? Any budget phone at 150$ would beat it at speed and the galaxy s6 camera with digital zoom would still take better pictures. This phone that much only because it can zoom.... For that price and if you want something for pictures better get a real camera... BTW the tech is more than a year old....
Better to buy Nokia Lumia 1020 for only $300 dollar and enjoy worlds best smartphone camera, Phone maybe little slow as for old hardware but hey when your is better camera other spec are worth to you.
INR 37,999 in India (around $560) - fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
AnonD-485765, 23 Jan 2016Even,From E-bay Or Old Sources You Can Buy 41 Megapixel Nokia 1020 or Samsung Galaxy K Zoom at... moreDude the price is kinda ok for a full hd screen ,128gb internal mem,4gb RAM ,2.5 ghz soc and optical zoom camera smartphone.IMO the other smartphones u mentioned does not even come close.
Even,From E-bay Or Old Sources You Can Buy 41 Megapixel Nokia 1020 or Samsung Galaxy K Zoom at around 18k,and a newcomer company like asus is charging 37500 for something which is not even close to above mentioned two devices whether in brand value or in features.
Too much. Almost flagship price. First of all they have to establish as brand be super reliable.
3 x optical zoom doesn't yet justify that price tag.
It is 299usd in Hong Kong, and deduct 119usd if u trade in your old d-cam
For me see what Zen 3 is offering, if this 1 better, will buy once it's updated to Android Mm.
Joke Of The Year ....... Asus 500+ $ hahhahhahaha
Only Asus Fanboy will get this...
they forgot lumia 1020 with 10.2 mm thickness and 4x lossless digital zoom and can zoom up to 8x. lol
AnonD-480266, 23 Jan 2016Only 3X Optical Zoom. Are You Kidding..That is three times the optical zoom of Apple's crap phone 6.
Only 3X Optical Zoom.
Are You Kidding..
Herodroid, 23 Jan 2016no, because trend plus friends thinks its coolTrends only last so long. And then that trend gets pushed away and never remembered again. Apple, however, are indeed doing something right about the phones that they release.
Very steep pricing. Go home Asus you are drunk!
this phone is 2years too late.
why wouldn't someone just go for the Samsung K Zoom?
7x more than this.
$500+ for an Asus phone? Whatever the spec, might as well spend money on an iPhone.
Better after-sale support, software updates, longevity, etc.
