I actually like the combo.One thing missing is a QHD display and maybe better audio hardware components.We'll have to see about the software part though but it zenfone 3(SD 652???) holds up well against galaxy s7 in gaming.They have to considerably improve the software in order to command that price and their software update is sketchy too.they should stop releasing hundreds of zenfone models and release like at most Three phones in each segment(budget,midrange,flagship) and software optimisation as its first priority
Surya Senthil, 09 Sep 2016seriously 800$...omg!!! Asus competing with apple, samsung... will see the result...Asus had maded top notch motherboards and graphic cards since the time when Samsung had maded vacum cleaners and Apple fishtank Mac's.... So no worry,Asus do know their job(at least with the hardware) ;)
Good specs but after sales and software updates are really bad.
Asus,that was heck of pricing!
You are not Samsung or Apple.
So,shut up and sit down -_-
Zenodroid, 09 Sep 2016so you base everything bad on the software and try to use it against its hw ? nice one. u got that wrong actually......i never doubted asus's hardware capability..i just want to day that if a compang wants to sell their smartphone for such a high amount they muat first get their tracks right for the android updates ad even the after sales reparing....every other asus service person just replaces the motherboard for even small issues coz they don have the spare parts..
seriously 800$...omg!!! Asus competing with apple, samsung... will see the result...
ThuckingFypo, 09 Sep 2016shi**y company with underwhelming aftersales and even in android updates...my zf5 is still on ... moreso you base everything bad on the software and try to use it against its hw ? nice one.
Hmm...so around 800$ for 6gb ram / 256gb storage / 23 megapixels camera with some good features / 5.7 inch display...hmm for me sounds fair...for this specs You pay minimum 1000$ to other companies.
Celoxocis, 09 Sep 2016So they waited for Apple to announce their iPhone before they make the deluxe available? Serio... moreAnd there are a lot of thick Android users too, probably a higher percentage compared to Apple users, because of the larger market share. But your point is ?.
Not gonna sell well, it's too overpriced.
Asus need to stay in their lane. They shouldn't charge these prices.
Karly, 09 Sep 2016We don't know that.And neither does anyone know whether any of the hundreds of millions of other devices being sold will explode either, but does that stop people buying them ?.
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2016because it doesn't explode. We don't know that.
