viano, 19 Jun 2019Why should be a better phone costing less?! Better stora... moreOneplus 7 is better in most of the department than Asus 6z. I am not expecting better phone at less cost. I mean internal ROM is 128gb in oneplus 7 base model. Asus also should go with 6GB + 128 GB instead of 6GB +64GB for base model.

should have been 3 k cheaper or with AMOLED screen as it's biggest competitor is one plus 6t and one plus 7. I do not think people will buy it manly for flip camera only. Personally I would wait for 6 more months of not in hurry so when in screen camera would start launching I could buy one. mechanical parts are vulnerable to dust and have high probability of getting damaged in long term after warranty due to dust or other external agents.

Anonymous, 19 Jun 2019Why would anyone buy it... Only for Flip Cam n 5k battery..... moreIt seems you
(and all the One+ and Redmi fanboys here)
like fooling things
like AMOLED and inferior Indisplay Fingerprint ...
(check for pentile matrix and burn-in, dimming and so on issues!)

Even last years ASUS Zenfone 5z has got May security earlier,
than that overhyped new OnePlus 7,
thats about "Faster updates ..." lol

((FYI ... and the budget Max M-series phones have got it as well.

asus is too slow releasing this in world market. im patiently waiting for 2 months now but im thinking to just buy xiaomi mi 9T pro if it will come out first for global support. this zenfone is harder to find else where.

Akashraj, 19 Jun 2019Well, that doesn't explain why Asus Zenfone 5z sold lesser ... moreI cannot talk for the phones sold, but the reason many people didn't buy 5z was that most people dont know about it. Many are not aware it is a flagship, many do not know ASUS makes a flagship, many people don't know its available in India.
I for one never knew ASUS flagship is available in India.
As for "Brand value can't be ignored", well that doesn't explain why Asus Zenfone 5z sold lesser than OnePlus 6 and 6t in India despite having better brand value.

There are lot of other advantages this phone has over alternatives like OnePlus 6TT(oh sorry OnePlus 7)

blacksheep, 19 Jun 2019Indians are honestly so thankless. I mean why are you so ha... moreWhat? For what do you think Indians should be thankful for?
They are pricing it according to the market. If it is priced lower than anywhere else in the world, that means they can make up for the loss by matching it in volume.
The reason why they are harder to please is that it is still not cheap enough compared to the competitors.
I can make a flagship, price it for 1 million INR for the rest of the world, sell it for one third its price in India, then should Indians be thankful to me just because I am selling it at a third of its global price?
I am not sure who made you feel that manufacturers are selling for Charity and how many data points you collected before you generalize the statement to all Indians.

Akshay, 19 Jun 2019This is too expensive why didn't they price it a bit lower ... moreWhy not for free ? Iol you need a flagship phone for 23k this phone only lacks OLED display other than that you are getting excellent stereo speakers,no notch,headphone jack, and a 5000 mah battery

Indian are lucky. Today they can buy zenfone 6 and renault triber. Both are coming with good price to performance. In indonesia we have to wait a bit longer and maybe with the higher price

Trollhammeren, 19 Jun 2019OH PLEASE! due to the local economy people have less money ... moreWell, that doesn't explain why Asus Zenfone 5z sold lesser than OnePlus 6 and 6t in India despite being available at significantly cheaper price. Brand value can't be ignored

Trollhammeren, 19 Jun 2019OH PLEASE! due to the local economy people have less money ... moreThe Local economy you are talking about is world's 3rd biggest in PPP terms. And before you rant per capital income, i suggest you check the nominal vs PPP difference.

Made for India - Asus Zenfone 6.

Both O... moreOH PLEASE! due to the local economy people have less money to spend , so they are even more frugal towards what and when they buy something. The market just evolved in the direction it is now just by simply trying to give more bag for the buc to make a sale. You can thank most of the Chinese company's that sell cheaper phones for that.

The only area where LCDs are beaten by OLEDS is blacks, that is it. OLED burn in is a massive issue and impacts basically every phone that is used a lot. OLED screens also tend to pentile with 2/3 the subpixels compared to an LCD IPS display. Whites are also much better on an LCD.

Please read about display technlogy a little more before having a go.

Anonymous, 19 Jun 2019Why would anyone buy it... Only for Flip Cam n 5k battery..... morei have following points in support of asus
1. LCD are superior that OLED
2. Have a headphone jack
3. In display finger print is just a gimmick. less practical compare to traditional fingerprint at back.
4. bigger battery
5. better sound output
6. Have gorilla glass 6
7. HDR 10
8. Dedicated sd card slot
9 fm radio
10 Reverse charging
11 At last best selfie camera in a mobile phone till date.

This is much cheaper than in Europe.
