Very nice quality full screen phone. Fruit phone with notch design, Samsung with thin upper bezel, so you people just a whole punch of Apple and Samsung fans. With upper bezel functions and features of a smartphone there is no other choice for 3rd or 4th player. I totally disagree all the comments of clone or copycat. Did Mercedes copy Ford with headlights in front or Toyota clone Chevy design with 4 doors sedan? That is part of design and necessity. Stop talking like a 3 years, be fair, and stop bullying.
if asus release RoG smartphone it may interest me,but this, it make asus like other chinese phone, no talent
Zenfone 5... pfffft, what a sad copy of the kr.appy fruit phone notch that's not even any good to begin with. I spit on this inferior product. Hope they lose billions with this dumb stunt.
iTerror, 01 Mar 2018Flagship phones should not exceed USD 400. Non-negotiable. Full Stop.Sadly, is up to supply and demand, not common sense

OnePlus 6 design is more suitable for your comment.

Great internals. Awful "iPhone X - style" design. I am very disappointed by these devices.
Friendly Reminder: It is IMPOSSIBLE to have a completely bezelless phone and retain the front camera(s), earpiece/speaker, and IR/light/proximity sensors without resorting to the notch. The technology simply isn't there.
I mean, look at the the Xiaomi Mi Mix. It has gotten so close, BUT
- You had to INVERT your phone to use the front camera because your palm covered it.
- And Xiaomi had to used fancy tech which vibrates the entire screen so you can hear who you're calling. That means ZERO PRIVACY and concentration of sound; everyone can hear your conversations.
My take it will be down to either Redmi Note 5 or Zenfone 5.
Gotta wait for the pricing for the ZF5 and make comparison.

The Wide Notch even has difference = Copycat
WOW! VERY AMAZING LOGIC!
Anonymous, 28 Feb 2018Their ZF3 and ZF4 are both rubbish, full of bugs and bloatware that were not fixed for months.... moreCompare to miui, miui has alot bugs rather than zenui. 😅 I prefer return to zenui, i regret use miui b'cuz lack of software support. It's better asus support zf3 from MM to Oreo. Yet Xiaomi neglect many of their 2016 devices without any software support.
is it so hard to just stay out of stupid trend like adding ugly notch to your phone???
I love the design of Asus zenfone 5 and zenfone 5 2018 because of the shiny rear design like zenfone 3, although someone say copy iPhone X but I think this phone has the best design than Xiaomi and Vivo, i just don't like screen is too big, at least in my opinion zenfone 5 has 5,5 inch
and zenfone 5z has 5,8 inch.
Make me surprised is the right difference of zenfone max & lite is battery, but screen....zenfone lite have bigger screen than zenfone max.
I think Asus with zenfone 5 and zenfone 5z have good design though copy iPhone X, at least than better of Vivo and Xiaomi.
Anonymous, 28 Feb 2018iPhone clone? Don't be ignorant and you better shut up if you know nothing. Essential is the f... moreiPhone brought the notch design into mainstream. Essential is just a small company that few people know about and has little influence on mobile phone trends. They don't even sell their phones worldwide. So if we are finding someone to blame, it is Apple.
