  1. That don’t mean that a company won’t produce a smartphone in the mid budget and premium budget range. Event the Asus Zenfone Zoom is a premium budget device with more than 30K price range.

  2. Needs the below specification for the same price
    1)Fingerprint / face scanner to unlock the phone
    2)Wi-Fi ac dual band

  3. It’s not expensive, it’s OVERPRICED! Even their Asus Zenfone 3 Laser is
    too much for a Snapdragon 430, since online stores made Xiaomi Redmi 3S
    and 3X available for purchase which cost like a little few hundreds to
    8K, same SOC bigger batt at 4000mAh smaller and less denser IPS panel
    and at 3gb ram, even Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro and Mi Max are still better
    value for money. They say that the Zenfone 3 targets other companies
    midrange offering. Vivo’s V3 Max can easily outsell what ASUS is
    offering. Their flagship offering as well is a big thumbs down. Ive read
    somewhere that there are lotsa hate on ASUS right now, its not really
    hate, lets just say that people who have waited patiently just for the
    release of their products are sooo disappointed at the prices across the
    board, its not the fault of the consumers, it was ASUS who posted the
    pricing from the beginning, and if there would be adjustments on the
    prices, consumers dont expect those at skyrocket pricing +50% especially
    on the Deluxe and Ultra.

  4. I bought Zenfone2 because I’m not willing to pay the Note or S prices of
    Samsung even if i wanted their specs and I can afford them for the
    simple reason that these smartphones become obsolete 2-3 months after
    purchasing. It seems so pointless. So Zenfone2 appealed to me because it
    offered flagship specs at a mid-range price, and a good brand – Asus.
    But with Zenfone3’s prices, I now find myself considering buying Note 7
    more than Zenfone3. Or not buying anything since it’s just a 15 month
    old phone. Personally I’m bummed because phone companies think
    smartphone consumers are sheep. Just because we bought your previous
    model and loved it doesn’t mean we’ll buy the next. Gradually increasing
    your prices every iteration doesn’t mean we won’t notice that you’re
    simply jacking up the price to meet the flagship prices of established
    brands eventually. So I guess this means there’s a new vacuum in the
    market. There are other brands who positioned themselves similar to what
    Asus did but don’t have the strength as Asus’ brand. I’m not about to
    buy a Xioami or O whatever. So yeah, this pricing move compels me not to
    buy Zenfone3 but finally something from the Note or S line of Samsung.
    This is my personal opinion and experience, some of you may disagree and
    some may agree. Let’s not troll the comments section.

  5. Samsung will be the big benefactor from this pricing scheme circus of
    Asus. They got really ambitious at an early stage. What a joke! 😛

  6. I rather choose Samsung S7 Edge than Asus Zenfone Deluxe. They have
    almost the same price. Add little more for Samsung Note 7 and you’ll get
    the best camera, best display and best performance you can find in a

    RIP Asus India
