  1. Couldn’t agree more. Overpriced, considering na ang pagkakaiba nya lang with Zenfone 2 Deluxe is the camera and being single sim.

    Bought a Zenfone 2 Deluxe priced at 18k. This is a no deal.

  2. It is a variable aperture lens, shooting f/4.8 indoors on the zoom end is pretty much useless.
    as per Youtube reviews on the camera , it isn’t that stellar either, performance-wise, katumbas lang pala ng Z3590 ay yung Snapdragon 801….So this is basically a upper-mid level device with a souped up internal storage and an optical camera mechanism.

    The Galaxy S7 hype is just around the corner, with its monstrous f/1.7 aperture, I’d expect na lalampasuhin lang ng S7 ang Zenfone Zoom sa image quality…..Sablay ang pricing ng ASUS dito, or they could’ve just halved the internal storage to 64GB para mabawasan ang SRP tutal may Micro SD support naman siya

    1. i couldn’t agree more. i’d be happy kahit ung 16gb lang ang ibenta basta ba they’ll lower that ridiculous price, mura na lang ang class 10 memory cards ngayon.
      sa price na yan people would rather go with the G4.

  3. I hope we get some expert camera reviews soon – and camera comparison with Note 5, LG G4, Lumia 1020/950 and Nexus 6p.
