Looking forward to a full battery report on this compared to a Lenovo p2 and a mi max 2 if it can beat them it will be interesting.
The 40% price difference (36 to be precise) is between 32 GB of Asus and 64 GB of rn5
64 GB Versions are 15% expensive
A reminder for all. This phone is 40% cheaper than Redmi Note 5 Pro. Stop nitpicking on the camera, charging time and lack of usb c. That ALMOST stock android is a bonus for smooth performance. Both this zenfone and xiaomi dont have nfc anyway. At least this zenfone offer dedicated dual sim slot.
I love the phone when it comes the battery capacity is 5000 mAh.
That's great! you know iloveit!
Vid448 , 11 May 2018You sure about it, I have heard the opposite bro. I am using this phone since last 4 days and only using my turbo charger, so I told you the results.
"greater than the sum of its parts."
Are you seriously taking a jab at HTC with this? Perhaps you could still their tag for the 5z, but this is no Zenfone flagship and certainly not competitive with the next-generation of U (or whatever letter they decide to try).
Anonymous, 11 May 2018Not even a mention that this phone doesn't support 5GHz WiFi?thats not a major issue
Zenyatta, 11 May 2018"The Redmi also comes with MIUI, which some might see as an advantage while others will prefer... moreDear fanboy,.
You never use MIUI, so stop your stupid opinion,
For me MIUI is advantage, still use it even when my phone rooted, i dont want to use custom rom near stock android, its boring.
So let me tell you this phone has too many update after launch, too many bugs, and worst camera quality, you can even see the difference sensor size on redmi note 5 and m1 pro.
I prefer better camera than slightly cheaper with unfinished product.
Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 vs. Xiaomi note 5 pro vs. Huawei Mate 10 lite/Nova 2i?
The only gripe is the micro-USB. Otherwise, it's a superb phone. Would like to gift it to my mommy for her ZF2's replacement.
Zenyatta, 11 May 2018"The Redmi also comes with MIUI, which some might see as an advantage while others will prefer... morethis phone also have some unremovable preinstalled bloat. also, official unlocking tool will send and record your imei, voiding warranties. Can't life without adaway & magisk module once u taste it. well, there still unofficial method if I must
Zenyatta, 11 May 2018"The Redmi also comes with MIUI, which some might see as an advantage while others will prefer... morethe phone has fast charging enabled, just buy or check with a fast charger, it gets 0 to 100 in 1hr 30 minutes.
"The Redmi also comes with MIUI, which some might see as an advantage while others will prefer the stock Android on the ZenFone."
No, nobody thinks that added bloatware and slow updates due to manufacturers tinkering with stock android to make their own bloated UI improves the experience for anyone except the people who work at those companies.
Android One is already a huge positive checkmark for this phone, but damn if only it was USB C + Fast charge connector or wireless charging it would be damn near perfect.
