I am just waiting for the phone. Yes 3 slots 2 for the SIMs and one for the expandable storage make me influenced to switch me from my existing phone. Where majorities of the phone launched have no headphone jack the zenfone like Lg keeps that. Amoled display is another add on with higher refresh rate and huse battery capacity with relatively faster charging capabilities were desirable and the company paid attention to. Hope the pro version of this 5g phone will have IPS 68 rating. I'll definitely go for this if available in my country.

But why a Side mounted FP reader..??
Why Asus ... moreYou can perform certain actions with the side-mounted fingerprint sensor (like you can with rear-mounted ones). The one on the Zenfone 7 also works as a shortcut for enabling features. I don't think you can do that with a in-display sensor.
So nothing wrong with that.

I was fan of Asus, their ZenFone 6 was almost perfect, only missed OIS, but this new ZenFone 7/7 Pro lost main advantages - 3,5 mm jack and IPS screen. I don't understand why ASUS???

Well, as someone who own a gaming headset that can be plugged both as USB and Jack, I would heavily prefer jack over SD card, though I would also like dual sim + dedicated SD card.
The Jack is still important, wireless doesn't change that, there are an impressively huge number of devices using jack, including professional music gear, like almost all guitar for instance.
What about Widevine support? Which level does the phone have?
Nice copycat of Samsung A80 for sure.
Their designer must be really proud.

Also the AMOLED on Redmi and Poco Phones is shit. No stock android, No SD card slot. And if I have to choose between SD card slot and 3.5mm jack, I'd go with the SD Card, since absense of jack can be compensated with adapter or wireless earphones. Maybe the absense of 3.5mm jack was a big deal a few years back. But since the wireless audio devices are cheap and much better these days, there's not much to complain. Also there's always option to get type C earphones.
The wireless charging though, is a valid point. But have to wait for the global version to see if it justifies the price (and ofcourse the Indian Variant, I don't think they're gonna price it more than ROG Phone 3).
Hopefully Asus has got it right this time because when the ZF6 released there was so many supply issues in UK. UK didn't get the phone in stock until 4 months after the global release.
The problem is that the Poco lacks a dual selfie camera compared to his counterparts Realme X3 Superzoom and this overpriced Asus

But there is the Poco F2 Pro with his 4,7Ah battery and its full feature set, including good sensors, IMO it only lack wireless charging.
Wow! I'm hoping it'll be released in the Philippines.

From what I checked most of these phone don't feature 30w fast charging (including the Motorola which costs double). BlackShark and Honor X10 Max 5G are significantly large phone, VIvo IQOO Z1x features integrated a slower integrated modem (blame Qualcomm for making the modem external in 865). Considering this, I'd rephrase my sentence, I think it's not possible to to make all the checks.
They put ois on the flip mechanism. Awesome
Sorry no hd audio 3.5mm jack. So plan to buy samsung m51. Triple slot good but without headphone jack they are no value especially for good screen u need good audio..
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2020Gourgeous devices but more than 200g is way too muchYou want a lighter device you go for a phone with a weaker battery mate. S20 ultra is 220g and this is 230g. Both share a 5000mah battery. Maybe that extra 10g comes from the flip up camera
Going for a proper triple camera setup, and using a high-refresh AMOLED display are excellent moves. These phones are now delivering everything the majority of customers care about.
ASUS is on the right track. Good for them!
looks like one hell of a good phone, but the pro has a tough competition with the op8 pro that you can get for like 700 Dollar now and Galaxy (SD865) s20 + also around 700 bucks or mi10 pro for even less than 700 bucks and their all as good as if not better than the zenfone but I gotta say that full no notch display is a major win, if that phone would have come a bit sooner i would have gotten it instead of my trash s20+ exyshit version
Wireless charging? You have a 5000mah battery to get through the day without charging all the time.
Also wireless charging increase battery temperature while you are charging as such the battery longevity will decrease, so wireless adds cost and decrease the battery lifetime, why would you want to that?
