KMB877, 24 Aug 2018Unfortunately, always the ASUS phones are missing several LTE ba... moreThat's not true,
for you (very special - US only - Bands) may be . . .

Just check this 3G, 4G compare:

WCDMA B1/2/5/8
FDD-LTE B1/3/5/7/8/20
TDD-LTE B38/40/41(120MHz)

POCO F1 - 13 Bands only, all together,
that's very-very poor, not even midrange coverage!

ASUS ZenFone 5z (ZS620KL)
offers more for FDD-LTE already = 17 Bands,
all together = 33 Bands !!
that means 254% (not only some bands more)

FDD-LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 17, 18, 19, 20, 26, 28, 29, 30, 32)
TD-LTE (Bands 34, 38, 39, 40, 41)
CDMA (Band BC0)
TD-SCDMA (Bands 34, 39)
WCDMA (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 19)

This is a flagship radio coverage,
not POCO, that's a shame only (also for that price).

but please don't complain here,
go to ZenTalk Forum,
there is a 'Suggestion' page,
you should say there, what would you like,
what's needed where do you live.

Particulary for zenfone 5 and 5z even if the demand for the phone is very high.

Still Android security patch is 5 June 2018 after update.

Weird, I feel that GFM Arena is like Xiaomi or Huawei site really.... They ignore Asus brilliant Zenfone 5, and no deserved review after months.... Really? Look at all xiaomi and huawei phones. They're getting reviews in matters of weeks after released. UNBELIEVABLE.

Why is GSM Arena not reviewing this phone. I have been waiting for a long time for it.

My wife have this phone, im really ,really surprised how good it is and even.more surprised gsmarena not.making a review for this, its so much more valuable then many other phones in here u make review of.
Put your self together folks, and make it thx.

Guys are you ever going to review this amazing product you guys are clearly more inclined towards Huawei and Xiaomi devices nowadays most Mi devices that are not even available in most part of the world are being reviewed but not this one,which is having widespread availability, that's a shame, would have loved an in-depth review from you guys.
