Anonymous, 17 May 2018Asus are improving. But why not rate their SD845 model?5z is not out yet
dadan, 17 May 2018midrange phone with 450e price lol No, it is 350e phone... So the price is really competitive for the mid-range phone!
Asus zenfone 5z is 450-500e phone and that is flagship (845sd, 6/8gb ram....) and still 150e cheaper then oneplus 6 and 300/400e cheaper then big companies phones (Apple, Samsung, Huawei....)
Oppaii, 17 May 2018This is the real one, It takes week before DxO get this phone in their hands so it means it's ... moreI suspect from all devices that the score shows up on the presentation day.
Because when it happens, the device is new #1.
This is the real one, It takes week before DxO get this phone in their hands so it means it's not sponsored.
Because those Mi Mix 2s and P20 Pro are all paid.

Maybe I can get hands on p20pro soon, but from what I've seen its great for eyes, but not at pro level. Now with premium coming its no brainer. 8mp 4K screen vs 2mp fhd included.
Shanti Dope, 17 May 2018Well I prefer not to be tested at all than to test it with full of bias and extreme nitpicking... moreThat lab is a biased company because they give the highest score for companies who pay them like millions or more.
Also, the Galaxy A8 2018 has lower score than Asus' because Asus has that AI tricks to improve photos, but in real life, it blows the natural details a lot.
I'm curious on how will P20 Lite wil fair against Zenfone5 in the camera department. 😊
AnonD-752943, 17 May 2018I doubt they will tho
The new dxo mobile is kinda, well, weirdWell I prefer not to be tested at all than to test it with full of bias and extreme nitpicking, criticisms even to the smallest details of the camera.
You see, once they test the phone, they will probably make the slow motion a standard, but instead of which one can do it with best resolution, they will judge them based on their lengths, then test the phone in 1080p to give it low marks.
Heck, they might even give deduction to how uneasy it is to take the video, and give high marks to Samsung instead.
Good news for Asus. It's a pity a cannot rate their design highly, too ... Could have been a perfect compact mid-ranger, but noooo! They had to make it so huuuge, even though it's the Deluxe models that were meant to always be the big ones. Will never buy it!

At the same time, I'd punch the reviewers' faces if they don't give credit to the high amount of resolved detail captured by the phone, given that only the P20 Pro can compete in this aspect, while others don't have the hardware with such high resolution.
If only Sony's next Xperia will have a huge impact on the camera division.
Revonox, 17 May 2018Can we finally stop using DxO as a reliable source for reviews? They've been known to have man... moreDxO is known by the community as a paid rater. DxO themselves didn't admit that so they're like telling the truth but yeah, I'll just follow what the hating sheeples say about them.
Asus is no player in Mobile (by that logic, Asus didn't pay them. DxO got the unit themselves and tries it out just for kicks) but DxOMark acknowledged how good their midrange is. Now I'm wondering how the Zenfone 5Z would be rated.
I hope they rate HMD Nokia's 7 plus and 8 Sirocco and will rate Nokia 9 with their unique camera system.
Shanti Dope, 17 May 2018Waiting for Xperia XZ2 camera test. Hopefully they will acknowledge the 'Bokeh' mode on this p... moreShanti, the defocus of XZ2 Premium will be different.
It wont be through the defocus app.
It will be digitally like P20.
Update will be delieved in july, phone comes in june.
Check a video on YT: xz2p x p20 pro x s9 x xz
At 200-300 Euros price, those quality should follow automatically. Too many competition in this upper-mid category.
Can we finally stop using DxO as a reliable source for reviews? They've been known to have manipulated benchmarks in the past.

Some care not, but for those who do sony is probably the only brand, you may wish for more but its hard going down with resolution be it camera or screen.
