  1. Umay na ko sa zenfone 3. 10+ posts na yata e, kahit dun sa kabila. Mahal pa, di ko mabibili. Xiaomi nasaan ka na ba?

    1. The advantage of Note 4 is that you can get it cheaper because it’s many generations old. The downside is the short lifespan of the AMOLED screen resulting to burn-in and that is not good if you plan to buy it as a second hand phone.

      Zenfone 3 main advantages include 4GB RAM compared to 3GB of the Note4. My favorite feature is that Zenfone3 uses the new much smaller 14nm process CPU compared to 28nm of the Note4 which means it’s cooler and more efficient battery. Lastly, Zenfone3 camera is advertized to be super fast and good low light performance. I tested my sisters Note4 and the main downside of its camera is the very slow focusing time and it struggles in indoor shots.

      1. AMOLED burn-in “issue” is so overrated. I still have my Note 2 and screen is still gorgeous. Sa pag-iingat lang.

        1. Malaki kasi ang pixels ng Note2 because of the low 720p resolution kaya matagal ang burn-in. Note4 has 1440 x 2560 which is two generations smaller. In general the smaller the pixels of OLED the shorter the life span.

  2. Alittle bit off-topic but can you guys at unbox reach out to ASUS and ask what is happening to the OTA Marshmallow update of Zenfone 2? Its taking forever, buti pa si Pokemon Go lumabas na.
