    Zenfone devices have been GARBAGE for years. They finally made a good one. Would you grab this for $500?

      I dunno bout GARBAGE. I've been using Zenfone 3 for 3 years and it's still running fine. I'd like to buy this zenfone 6 but since the phone I'm using is still going strong so idk

    Asus is doing better but still mid range and does compromise internal component quality to cut costs. I'm using the Zenphone 3 and it's decent but beware....

    It is just, how to say, ugly, really really ugly, not for me.

    Wow, those are great specs. I just got the google pixel 3a xl. I would definitely prefer the zenfone 6, but i cant pay $500 in one payment anyway, so im stuck with whatever my carrier provides with financing.

    In my opinion if you're going to spend $500 you should just spend the extra $170 and get a oneplus 7 pro

    PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE.... read my experience, alot of other people are going through this... check xda developer forums as well for this... buy at your own risk

    I purchased my zenfone 6z in the end of june and after a few day's of usage my phone kept crashing and restarting on it's own. I gave my phone to the service center located in borivali (mumbai - india), they said that the phone could not be repaired and they will have to ship this phone to their service center in dadar (mumbai) and the whole process will take 14 days... after 14 days i get my phone back and i expect it to work... the same day i took my phone back it started restarting again,

    After this i again went to the service center and this time too they took 14 days all over again and still till date my phone keeps restarting and crashing... It's been a month now and i have completely lost faith in their service centers and the they you provide.

    I am sick and tired of writing mails, calling the helpline number and travelling to and fro the service center, I do not think that they possess the quality and expertise to repair this device.

    They won't refund or replace this device too... please check all reviews before buying this device

    2:02 makes the phone look great. But this whole thing where companies make the bottom bar way bigger than the top is a bit annoying. Just can't really consider upgrading until we get a phone where both ends look like 2:02. They're getting SO close that it seems like a bad move to buy something now when in a year or two we might actually get a real full-screen phone.

    I am watching this video on my Asus Max M2. It's got an amazing battery backup and an awesome Ram management. Asus is really doing a great job at present.

    The only real advantage or OLED is that the blacks are deep black. Regarding OLED being more punchy and contrast-y, it's true, but it's not real life. OLED = over saturation.

    I prefer LCD panels over amoled panels because I do believe they are better for your eyes and the colour accuracy is just wayyyy more accurate..

    a little gimmicky? man i love those features! i had no idea the zenfone 6 had all those camera features

    you can also probably sit it on the edge of a table with the camera at a 90º angle and boom, no need for tripod

    this looks dope

      Lcds last longer and like all iPhones before the x model they are all still perfect to this day due to lcd technology. So that's the upside of a small tiny compromise of not having deep blacks.

    • Guigui
      Guigui Month ago +1

      I read several people complaining about the burn-in of oled display.
      I never got one so I don't know for sure. But I prefer a less beautiful display that will last than one that will have yellow markings in a year.

      @Sudip Ekka there isn't any heating issue mate. Call quality isn't that good, intially you might feel kinda weird , but eventually I got used to it. The outdoor visibility isn't that great compared to other screens but shouldn't be a problem IMO. Isn't a problem to me atleast.

    • Farzan Mustafa

      @Raphael Garcia I'm coming from an I phone 6s so anything for me was an upgraded screen. But I did use my cousin's S10 so I do have an idea of the AMOLED screen. The only difference that I personally feel is AMOLED is a lot more vibrant when it comes to colours. Also the LCD screens brightness seems really dim compared to AMOLED when you are out in sunlight.
      These are the only difference to me. Also I didn't feel these as any major issue. Overall it's pretty comfortable.

      Did you get the 64, 128 or 256 GB variant ?
      In France, the 256 is sold out.
      It's a bit expensive for me at 600€. I might take the 128. I think it's at 550€. Still pretty expensive for me but I want a big memory. The 64 is too low.

    Much like that Playstion Vita, the change to LCD screen extends battery life and lowers cost. Pair that with the huge battery and I can see 2 days usage. I also almost never take selfies. I'm sure I'm not alone on that.

    Mr Lee. I am writing this comment from Zenfone 3 Laser. The software you are complaining about is still running smoothly on my device. Its 2016 phone still working fine whereas my friends who had bought phones like One Plus 3, Moto G4, G5 have already upgraded to a new phone as they all were terrible even with stock android. The Apps you are saying as Bloatware are quite usefull if you have something in your head
