  1. I hope Asus knows what it’s doing saturating the market with different versions of essentially the same phone. Samsung was bad enough at this but et tu, Asus? Et tu?

    1. “essentially the same phone”?

      If you mean all having the name “Zenfone,” then yes. But specs wise, no they are definitely not. The procie is the main differentiator here.

      The first bad thing I see about this is the confusion it will cause to ther market with plenty of average, non-reader of blogs/news. Heck, even salespersons don’t know everything they’re suppose to sell. Add to that the fact that Zenfone 4, C, 5 and 6 are still being sold.

      I think Asus is trying to find out if having use-specific units is a good way to go rather than putting all higher-tier specs to a one (flagship) unit. They are in a position to keep tinkering after their first successful year..

  2. asan na ang zenfone zoom? narelease na ang LG G4 at Lenovo vibe shot, samantalang etong zoom na una inannounce mukhang nawala na lang na parang bula..
