Will this first get released in TAIWAN or not? I'm confused because I read on GSM Arena that it will be first released in Thailand. Does that make sense? Shouldn't TAIWAN (Asus is Taiwanese company) get the phone before Thailand?
I never bought a Zenphone before but I will likely but the Zenphone 3 (great specs).. does the announcement on May 30.. usually mean for Asus that the phone will also be released on May 30 in Taiwan? Please anybody with past experience with this let me know!
I am in Taiwan for the next few weeks and want to buy the phone before I leave. Thank you
Loving my zf2. Hoping the 6.0 upgrade comes to it soon.. a smaller zf3 sounds perfect for my girlfriend!
I don't own a Zenfone 2 but I hear most of them are still running Android 5.0 and that is kind of worrisome. Fast OS updates are important to me so I will look for alternatives unless this device is extremely appealing.
If screen sizes are true, I applaud Asus. More companies should give all size options. When looking at phones, its the first thing I look at.
Yay 5 inches !!! Now I hope the price is affordable like Zenfone 2
Stupidme, 19 May 2016I think ur in the wrong section..this is asus department not moto g4...Right...but I was replying to the person who was asking about the two different phones.
if you guys want to know the screen size of zenfone 3 series, you can check again the teaser video from previous post, then you can make rough estimation about the phones size from their cameras' dimension.. after you got rough measurement (or estimation) of their phones dimension (by comparing the dimension of back camera and phone dimension), then use the numbers screen-to-body-ratio from zenfone 2.. from there you can get estimation of zenfone 3 screen size
Anonymous, 19 May 2016Is it better to wait for zenfone 3 or buy moto g4 plusWait for next nexus because it will be a hell of an upgrade.Google i/o made me wait for nexus
are you sure the screen sizes? I thought the first two phones will be either 5 & 5.2inch or 5.2 & 5.5inch.. and the biggest one would be 5.7 up to 6inch
Please, don't get 1GB RAM models, as happened with Zenfone 2E. And don't gimp the lesser models with crappy Mediatek chipsets, I'm even open to a S410
We actually do know what the G4 has now, and it is looking like a promising option over the Zenfone3. It DOES have turbo charging (6 hours of use time in 15 minutes of charging) and waterproofing, and can be dropped in water up to 5 feet deep for 30 mins and still perform normally...that's quite impressive. Oddly, though, they kept Gorilla Glass 3 instead of upgrading to 4, which could be concerning depending on how harshly you treat your phone. G4 does have a 4GB Ram 64GB Plus option with sd up to 128GB. The processor will not be the higher end Snapdragon ASUS should be using (only the 410 version), but the bonus side here is that the G4 will presumably come with far less bloatware that the Zenfone is infamous for pre-loading onto their device, and which will ultimately clog up and slow down your device. I will at least wait for the official release of Zenfone 3 to see if they have adequately addressed the shortcomings of their previous models; camera quality, battery life and the glitches in performance so many have complained about after moderate to long term use. However, with the G4 Plus and it's upgraded specs, now full HD display, 16mp Camera and the G line's reputation for battery life, picture and display quality...I'm certainly leaning towards the G4.
4.5" device could be tempting - so long as it has decent, powerful camera, processor and RAM.

Hopefully the 4.5 will have the proper spec. The 5.5 are too many in market now. Looking forward to buy a smaller phone to bring along running but dont want to buy the expensive iphone se.
