AnonD-259899, 12 Jul 2016Don't be so quick to heap the praises. They have a dismal camera software development history.... moreDismal camera software? Do you know PixelMaster 2.0 camera software has the best Manual Mode? You can control AF,WB,ISO,SS,HDR,Saturation,Detail,NR,EV,contrast and sharpeness!
And for battery, I have Zenfone 2 (59H endurance on GSMArena review) and I always check on setting then getting 3-4 SOT (browsing,music and games continously). Zenfone 3 Deluxe will has better battery review on GSMArena than Zenfone 2.
AnonD-515196, 12 Jul 2016Also they have never been good on software front after Kitkat.
They left Zenfone 5 / zenfone ... moreYou are not alone. My Zenfone 5 used almost 2 year very disappointed with battery and its buggy ZenUI. Stayed in buggy KitKat and won't upgrade to Lollipop that 2x buggier than KitKat.
Camera worsen after update the PixelMaster Camera app into version 2.0 with blurry and slower shutter speed.
As you said, we should wait for the Zenfone 3 series review so we can trust how power are they.
Also they have never been good on software front after Kitkat.
They left Zenfone 5 / zenfone 2 laser with buggy firmware and never looked back to them. Post Android L/M, their phone camera quality, call quality, usage quality degraded.
Now their phone look good only on paper.

The zte axon 7 looks to be the better phone overall.
I'm in a good position though, I'm planning to upgrade next year, so it gives zte, Asus, and oneplus some time to impress me with their software support and optimisation. Chances are I'll buy one of their flagships next year.
Again small battery...when they will understand people need bigger battery, crazy
and you is hard to believe according to your rumors Zenfone 3 is supposed to come out today in the sale to Taiwan but apparently none of that
