did not see xperia 5 iii as an alternative...
though it is the closest thing i am considering for a shortlist... if 5 iv will exist, then it is zenfone 9 vs xperia 5 iv for me...
and then there is pixel 6a...

    There's basically no competition here.
    They have the ROG series for people who want the mainstream and more.
    So you don't need to be concerned about them.
    I prefer smaller phones. There are others too like me. And I don't really care if the majority wants carpal tunnel syndrome.
    And I am happy that Asus is even providing me an option to use something that I don't have to sacrifice my comfort.

          7g1, 695, or 778

          get rid of the cameras, put a single one on the back that costs like 5 bucks

          get rid of the audio tweaks (that's another 50+ to manufacturing costs with no discernable benefit)

          use an lcd screen, 60Hz

          add sd card slot

          add a green color as dark and saturated as the red

          also maybe an orange?

          sell it for 250

          best phone in the world right there

              An in screen reader is a lot of tech for a not always great experience. Side readers are more reliable and if waking the phone from the power button you're pressing the reader anyway.

                this is my next, 28 Jul 2022I'll give you HTC's phones before they sold that ... moreWindows OS was awful therefore the phones were awful. It doesn't really matter how good the camera is if the software just isn't there. Asus aren't even in the top 10 makers worldwide. There's not way they're happy with that but people don't like to admit when they're wrong. That is essentially why companies go bankrupt. They refuse to change strategy even when it's clear their current one isn't working.

                No I have average size hands for a 73 kg 181 cm male. 5.9" is very small by today's standards and the market isn't there for them. In the real world I never hear people complain their phone is too big. Even people much smaller than me

                    Anonymous, 29 Jul 2022For that price, Asus could have at least give 1st gen LTPO ... moreRegarding the battery I think it is pretty large considering the size. Phones with 6.5+ inch screens have 5,000 mAh. My guess is that after that Galaxy Note problem no one wants to cram the battery to the absolute limit. Dave 2D opened this phone up and it is clearly visible that there is few mm of space between the battery and the edges of phone's body

                          Wasted the AF of the ultrawide on a very old sensor. Why skimp on the ultrawide sensor when you are already spending on its AF?

                                Those who don't know, physical fingerprint scanner is more newer and secure technology than optical scanners
