The only positive is the use of the SD 636. Other than that, I hate the notch.
I hate this idiots in the comment section who thinks to speak for everyone else. I love android and I do like smartphones with the iPhone design if it haves thin bezels. Which this one have. This ASUS smartphone looks great.
A horrible screen crippling notch is a horrible thing, fruty crapp or whatever wannabe gadget it is on
Yeah yeah, ... Iphone copy but wih a better batery, with a better software (Android 8), a amazong screen 19:9 and a better price...
asus will hopefully keep its build quality with model 5.
good specs for base model and an idea which i like-one series with few models having different specs (tier 1-3) instead of confusing several different models using range from SD100 to SD845.
Cant wait for the release!
Please see the presentation video of Asus Zenfone 5Z before to write comments. Dont judge without seeing this phone. I saw some minutes ago. And be informed that it will come the best phone which i compared with the others. Every last technology you can find in this phone. AI technology, Face recognition, 19:9 display, 2 rear cameras with wide angle. advanced fingerprint sensor not only for fingerprint and for seeing notifications also, front camera also is good. Ai display - this is awesome. 6 and 8 RAM , with Snapdragon 845 , and 128/256 GB storage. Guys what are you say without seeing this. There have more and more technologies which i can't write here. Seriously as a current user of Samsung (before Sony) i already thinking to change my decision to the ASUS. The price is awesome !
Asus is from Taiwan, not China. But that "notch", pathetic, I agree, without it, this could be one of the best designs of this year.
stupid trend, i'm never gonna buy a phone with a notch or without a headphone jack, apple leading the market with their stupid so called innovation lol
The design is awful but despite that, Asus got many things right. Headphone jack, dual (stereo?) speakers, Snapdragon 845, microSD slot, all for 480 EUR! The Zenfone 5Z seems like a great OnePlus 6 competitor.
I was originally thinking of buying Sony's compact this year but the device looks dissapointing.
jesus christ all china phones copy iphone x with that notch and it looks soo shitty
I hate anyone that copies the other. Why can't they bring up something new themselves but instead they copy Apple. I hate when Androids do that. Maybe those displays are left from Iphone X because of its low demand. Disappointed.
H-1, 27 Feb 2018The phone that looks like an Asus on the back and "fruitish" on the front XD
Don't get me wro... moreWhy do you say it's a notch when it's not a notch?
The screen takes its normal place, just below the earpiece + camera + proximity sensor. But, on the sides, instead of leaving all that unused space, it's extended to show status icons, the clock, and so on.
The display is not meant to show pictures/videos on the sides of the earpiece + camera + proximity setup.
