Yes there are a few bugs but continuous software updates are coming and many bugs are going away. 4 of my friends have the poco and none of them face screen bleed or camera issues. The poco is an amazing phone. And the best part is I never have to worry about my battery dieing during the day. It just keeps ticking and ticking. The Asus is also a nice phone but I am done with phones that don't offer great battery life.
BrendonF, 10 Sep 2018Poco battery *may* last longer? :p Its 700 mah more! It will definitely last much longer! ... morepoco software not optimized. 5z win when it come to optimizing the app l, poco has liquid cooling heat pipe i think because apps are not optimized, experimental marketing strategies poco has a lot of problem right now like yellowish in camera screen bleeding and etc.

vin c., 12 Sep 2018Hi. I read that the ZF5Z (ZS620KL) supports quick charge 3.0. Is it also the same for the ZF5 ... moreYes! Both phones support qc 3.0. However your Zenfone 5 doesn't come with one in the box. However if you buy one the Zenfone 5 will utilize the additional voltage and charge quicker
Hi. I read that the ZF5Z (ZS620KL) supports quick charge 3.0. Is it also the same for the ZF5 (ZE620KL) are they also compatible? My ZF5 only has 10w adapter inside the box.

That the camera didn't have OIS wasn't a surprise since the Poco was built to a budget.
The Netflix thing doesn't bother me since I find watching movies on such a small screen to be most boring but I can see there will be people who would watch movies. The OIS also doesn't bother me since I use the phone camera to shoot things like my food or other stuff where I don't care too much about IQ.

While Xiaomi is one of the best in offering a good battery life mostly, and Poco supposedly has above par battery life, Poco is still a no for me given it doesn't have OIS and HD stream support. I can bear with a notch (this is why I liked Max 3; no notch, but that has the same problems as mentioned now), I don't even mind plastic (you are right in saying that metals make it slippery, and metals have some other problems like signals), I don't even demand AMOLED or 1440p resolution (the latter kills the battery life), but...
DiegoMarcondes, 10 Sep 2018Which camera is better, 5Z or Poco F1? Are you joking?
Check for last (camera) update for 5z!
or compare the network (3G, 4G Bands) support.
H-1, 05 Sep 2018Strange with many people around me owning the same device and updating it to the laterdt oreo ... moreStrange, there are many reports of cameras of ZF3 not in focus, 3 new posts in their own forum just for today. Maybe some people have too much time on their hands to post fake bugs reports.

I like his Asus but the glass makes it slippery as hell so he uses a cover to hide its design. And of course I don't like the battery life. 4-5 hours sot now will mean 3 hours or less in a year or year and half.
My poco doesn't have good looks and its screen is raised so I need a case too but I love the awesome battery life on it.
BrendonF, 10 Sep 2018Poco battery *may* last longer? :p Its 700 mah more! It will definitely last much longer! ... more"MAY NOT". Just because the battery has higher mAh, it may not necessarily last longer, it depends on the OS optimizations, FYIP. This is a FACT. For example, although my LG G4 has 3000 mAh battery, it doesn't last at all (much shorter life than expected), and there are many phones with 3000 mAh battery that last good enough.

Its 700 mah more! It will definitely last much longer!
And lets not forget around 200 euro cheaper than the Asus 5z
Not A Fanboy, 01 Sep 2018But can you stream Netflix in HD. It's a meme now for poco f1. That was a pun no hard feeling ... moreYes, you can as 5z supports widevine DRM with L1 level security. After reading much info, I have realized 5z is definitely a better phone than Poco as long as you are okay with notch and some other compromises at this price. Poco doesn't even have OIS in cam which is essential for a good low-light photography. The 5z looks better as it's metal-glass. But Poco's battery may last longer.
Vonarian, 06 Sep 2018Hi. screen brightness? it's about 550-600 cd/m2 (nits)thanks
Senju, 04 Sep 2018What is the battery life of Asus Zenfone 5Z?? I want to buy a new phone. Confused between A... more If you don't need low light photography, go for Poco (no OIS). 5z is better if you want OIS, like metal-glass design. I would suggest to avoid LG as they have a history of SW mess-up (bootloop and others).
Not sure, under what circumstances the phone was charged or tested for that matter. I own this phone and battery charging is quite fast. Today morning, I started charging it when it was 0%, the following is the stats:
9:50 ---- 0%
10:32 --- 71%
So it's quite evident that it took around 81 minutes to go from 0 to 100. I am impressed.
