I think the "sealed battery" if it means what I think it means (i.e.non-removable) is a big step backward from the Asus Zenfone 2 line. This leaves only LG as a brand name manufacturer that's putting out midrange to flagship phones with user-replaceable batteries.

Hi I'm an expat living in Taiwan. I have decided to buy the Zenphone 3 the day it becomes available.
The announcement will be May 30. Can anybody guess how long after the product will be released in Taiwan? I just wonder if the phone will become available to buy in Taipei on June 1, or June 10, etc. Hopefully not too long to wait.
Secondly.. where is a good place in Taipei to buy the phone when it first becomes available? I know about Guang Hua Digital Plaza. But is there a better place in Taipei that might get the phone to sell sooner? Thank you!

Umm.....I watched that Chick's back for more time than the phone.....:\
Jarret, 21 May 2016Asus smartphone sucks! I bought last year and using it for 8 months until it was brokenmy friend bought samsung s7 and less than 8 months it was broken.. my other friend bought asus and she still use it more than 8 months without any problems.. we can concluded, sometimes the durability of a product depends on how you use it..
Hope that 4.5 inches will be true and with 2gb and dual sim finally. Then I will go for it.
Too much megapixel though, I mean 16 or even 12 megapixel is enough as far as the quality of the camera is good enough.
Resolution isn't everything and that could cut the price as well I think.

AnonD-404798, 20 May 2016thanks for the info , I highly appreciate it ! :) that looks like a capable shooter ...poor v... moreThe Gionee Elife E8 was use it first, but due SoC Mediatek X10 has bad ISP, then result camera sample its not good. (Its same of Infinix Zero 3 even use Sony IMX 230 if it use Mediatek X10 the result its bad) but dont worry because ASUS Zenfone 3 use Snapdragon series :D
Anonymous, 19 May 2016I think isnt Sony IMX300 due the IMX300 its expensive. But its OmniVision OV23850! Here OmniVi... morethanks for the info , I highly appreciate it ! :) that looks like a capable shooter ...poor video capture capabilities though ....
AnonD-493531, 19 May 2016Please, don't get 1GB RAM models, as happened with Zenfone 2E. And don't gimp the lesser model... moreI doubt it. From what I understand only the rare carrier versions went down to 1Gb. Everyone that's sensible enough to not fall for the old "free phone" trick and just bought the Zenfone outright got 2Gb. ^.^
AnonD-404798, 19 May 201623MP camera ? is it IMX300 ?Maybe. Because there are some leaks from ASUS Distributors that they are using Sony sensors. Oh, and there are come in 4 sizes. 5,2 inch, 5,5 inch, 5,7 inch and 6,8 inch.
for now i go with Zen 2 Laser 5", hopefully there will be another Zen 3 Laser with 5" screen. 5.5" is too big for me, im happy using 5" phone with decent spec and cheaper like Zen 2 Laser.
I'm still pinching my pennies for the zenfone2 deluxe. Look it up sometime, its puuuurty!
