asus have bad software update, look at rog 2 and zenfone 6 bug and bad optimisation although the latter is better and acceptable

I bought the Zenfone 6 8GB/512GB from a Taiwanese eBay seller only to have it DOA after updating to Android 10. I sent it back and they can't replace it as there's no stock. They also said that the repair centre won't fix it?? Ugh I can't wait for the Zenfone 7 to be released!!

Naveen Chaudhary, 20 Jul 2020Bad thing about Asus, they phase out the models too early. ... moreAs a former owner of Vibe X3, why do you have to open my wounds like that!

I have high expectations from Zenfone 7 with the pricing of Asus ROG 3 Strix at $800. And hope that it has an sdcard slot.

Asus could never keep the Zenfone 6 properly in stock. The 64GB model is currently on Amazon and eBay for OVER $1,000!!!

It retailed for $499!!!

Bad thing about Asus, they phase out the models too early. Seems they manufacture all the lot at once.
Same goes for Lenovo's experimental models, remember what they did with marvellous Vibe X3

Just wait for the charging problem and forced update the cause more problem than improve

I used zenfone 6 and i will never buy asus phone again even for free

Blutbad-fuchsbau, 20 Jul 2020Enjoy your tint filled Oneplus 8 pro.Don't have a OnePlus 8 Pro, but okay then.

Dennis.K, 20 Jul 2020With this typa spec sheet expect like $700-750 starting pri... moreYes of course it's gonna cost a fortune. 5G, Wifi 6(ax), 64MP primary, 16MP ultrawide, 30 watt charging, 128GB base model for the Zenfone 7, and 256GB base for the 7 pro, going all the way up to 1TB, and even using 16GB ram, will definitely add to the costs tremendously.

Expecting the 7 base to start at $700 while 7 pro base to start at $900 with the 1TB model retailing for ~$1.3k. Let's hope the cameras are as good as the one on the Sony 1 II or better. Could it also rival the Oppo Find X2 Pro? Hopefully!

If the Zenfone is going to be expensive, then there's gotta be a midrange phone that they will be releasing. Max Pro M3? Zenfone 7 lite with 765G? We'll definitely find out all the details on Wednesday.

Like no stereo, no HDR screen, no IP68, usb2.0 or 2.1, no Qi and gorilla 5 on one side.
