Very hard to explain and compensate for especially when GSM would normally declare something like poor reception that would affect standby power draw.

wongwatt, 13 May 2021No wireless charging, no SD card, no telephoto of any kind ... moreI never care about wireless charging, so that won't bother me. No SD card expansion can be a deal-breaker for me, so I have to be wise when choosing the right internal storage capacity. While I do like to have a native telephoto camera, the main 64MP camera is already good enough for 2x to 3x crop zoom, so I'm not missing out much. Compared to the Pixel 5, the ASUS definitely has the flagship-grade performance and I also have IP68 protection. A no brainer for me to pick this ASUS.

Anonymous, 13 May 2021Wherever you find the Jack, radio is there, so No, not necessarily. Current Sony flagship phones also have the headphone jack but it doesn't have FM Radio support. You need to have a radio receiver inside the phone to get FM Radio, which sadly the Sony lacks.

What they have included already is too much stuff for a such a small size factor phone telephoto, wireless and sd slot requires more space!
People can never be happy this phone has 888 is very well priced has a jack, notification led,the speakers which are comparable to fricking rog,a very good quality display, camera and all the stuff Plus a stock android+ software and you still compain smh

camera samples are great 👏
but the overall design of the phone is not so impressive.

I have a question.

There is no mention about the DAC for headphones output.

Only about smart amplifiers for speakers.

Maybe someone have some info about DAC like ESS Sabre?

I wish they moved that big chin to top and placed selfie cam in it instead of screen

Alex, 12 May 2021"Outstanding photo quality" is a biggest cr... OK... moreI would say the image quality during the day is one of the best if not THE best - The amount of captured details is handily above Pixel, Galaxy and iPhone and slightly below the regular Mi 11, which is quite something for a phone whose price starts from 600 euro. Low light image quality is pretty great IMO, although I do disagree with GSMArena's comment that it's good even without night mode - details look too smoothened out unless it's enabled.

"And completely unusable at night, all textures are a total mess, thank you"
Then keep the auto night mode on??

wongwatt, 13 May 2021No wireless charging, no SD card, no telephoto of any kind ... moreComparing Zenfone 8 to a Pixel 5 is nothing but an absurdity given how the former is a proper high end smartphone that also comes with a higher grade OLED display, a headphone jack, significantly better sounding speakers and (somewhat surprisingly) similar price.
