    CORRECTION, the phone does not have Wireless Charging, my mistake! To all of you who manage to get here before I do, you're the real heroes 👊 Very curious what you think to the phone's design? Too plain or do you actually like it? To see some of the coolest Tech Inventions in the world right now: svsoft.info/award/dZ6ZhollnaWbomg/video.html

      I actually don't mind this basic design (plus i put customized covers on my Phones anyway). And personally its still much better than the random shiny gradients which phones have nowadays. The rest of the specs sounds good and i would totally buy this if i needed a phone in this price range.

      Love it's simple, low key looks. Keeps attention away. The beastly specs are awesome too, all they need now is to make a 6. 5 incher amd it would be perfect.

    Very troubling are the Asus support and service that lurks behind. During 2020 and 2021 they were the worst I have ever experienced, in any industry and for any product. Timeline: - Jan 2020: I buy new Zenfone. - Aug 2020: Phone no longer charges, on any charger including Zenfone’s supplied charger. The charging port in the phone is not working. - Aug 2020: Still under warranty, I mail the Zenfone to the ASUS repair center in Grapevine, Texas. This is an unnecessarily complicated process. For example, Zenfone’s support keeps assuming I purchased a laptop, and tries to communicate with me about laptop repair. - November 2020: I receive the Zenfone, apparently repaired. (But the data on my phone has been wiped out.) - March 2021: My Zenfone stops working completely. No power, no blue screen, nothing. - March 2021: ASUS assures me I will be charged only a diagnostic fee of $85, to have the phone assessed and then repaired. - March 2021: ASUS then tells me I’m no longer under warranty, which ended in Jan 2021. - March 2021: ASUS then tells me I am still under warranty, which was extended because of the previous problem with the Zenfone in 2020. - April 2021: I again mail the Zenfone to the ASUS repair center in Grapevine, Texas. - April 2021: ASUS then tells me I’m in fact not under warranty any more. - April 2021: ASUS then tells me actually I am under warranty, which was extended for an additional 3 months. - April 2021: ASUS then tells me I’m in fact not under warranty, which supposedly expired “2 December 2020”. - April 2021: ASUS then tells me my warranty in fact expired on “8 March 2021”. - April 2021: I ask to escalate the issue. (At this point, ASUS Customer Service is already the worst I have experienced, ever, for any product in any industry.) - April 2021: ASUS maintains that my warranty is expired, but offers me a “20% discount” off their fee to repair the dead phone, which is $289. I ask to get a better deal, given what I’ve had to go through in owning this ASUS product. ASUS tells me they will check with their Corporate dept. - April 2021: ASUS calls me back, telling me they can take 30% off the fee, to repair the dead phone. - April 2021: ASUS then sends me an invoice for the full amount of $289, with no discount. Also, the invoice description of the problem is wrong, as it says “Hangs on ASUS logo” (instead the phone does not respond at all). I call ASUS and ask them to correct the invoice. - April 2021: ASUS then sends me a new invoice for this repair, for an even higher fee of $362. The invoice also states a completely different problem: it includes a $97 item (plus tax) and a $243 item (plus tax) both for “abnormal appearance (deformation/scratches/damage/paint removal/dirt/rough edges)”. I call to tell ASUS it should be lower, as we had discussed. And to tell ASUS my phone was not physically abnormal or damaged in any way, when I had sent it to their repair center. And that this new invoice is completely different from their prior invoice. (At this point, it is becoming apparent to me that what is happening at ASUS here is not merely total incompetence, poor training and poor management, but possibly something worse.) - April 2021: ASUS contacts me to say they erred, and should have sent me an invoice for $231. I then correct them again, saying no that would be only a 20% discount off the repair fee. ASUS had told me my discount was 30% off (for $216). - April 2021: During these interactions, I keep having to tell ASUS that my phone is to be repaired at the discounted rate, but nevertheless ASUS keeps sending me e-mails stating that my phone will be sent back to me unless I pay the (undiscounted, incorrect) invoice amount within 5 days of the invoice date. Repeatedly ASUS assures me that my phone will not be sent back to me, that it is on track to be repaired at the rate they had agreed to, and that I will no longer receive these e-mails pressuring me to pay within 5 days. Yet, the e-mails are not stopped, they keep coming. - May 2021: ASUS sends me another invoice for the incorrect, higher amount ($362) and the incorrect problem: “abnormal appearance (deformation/scratches/damage/paint removal/dirt/rough edges)”. - May 2021: I contact ASUS, escalate the issue, and ASUS tells me they will have someone contact me in 24-48 hours. 24-48 hours pass by, with no call from ASUS. Meanwhile, ASUS continues to send me invoices, and a payment deadline, for the incorrect rate of $362. - May 2021: I contact ASUS again, escalate the issue. ASUS assures me that they will stop sending me e-mails asking for payment of $362, and will contact me about correcting it. - May 2021: ASUS “Proactive Care” sends me an e-mail stating that an internal failure to correct the invoice “has triggered the return of your device unrepaired”. The e-mail also states that once I receive my unrepaired Zenfone, I can re-create the return, ship the phone BACK to ASUS (at no shipping cost to me) and “continue this process”. (I’m thinking, Uh… no thanks.) - May 2021: Sure enough, I then receive the Zenfone, returned to my home by ASUS. Unrepaired and dead. To all: enjoy your ASUS experience.

    Hi mrwhoestheboss... I need a little help from you... I am preparing for UPSC exam.. and I am in a utter need of an ipad for this... I know this is not a way to ask favour ...but I am completely helpless and want to study, but I am unable to since it requires a lot of investment and I belong to a middle class family and they think such things are not necessary for studies but they don't understand how much it would help me... I promise you I will repay every penny once I become an IAS... you may not even see this comment but I just wanted to try it out anyways... iPad will make me take notes and store them very easily so that I can revise it whenever I can it will make my online learning experience pretty good... If you have any ipad that you don't use please giveit away to me... I will be forever greatful and will definitely return the money back.🙏

    ASUS is a FRAUD! They don't deliver promised Android upgrades! When they do they do it with feel lot of bugs. They're still "WORKING" on Android 10 update for the ZF Max Phones And in the name of Stock Android they give a Toned Down version of the OS with a lot of features missing which you can find on non Android ONE phones as well like Moto G10 and E7

    I like the look of it. A phone should just be a phone, not a fashion accessory you change monthly. Gaming? I dont give a toss. Social media? I dont give a toss. Photos? I have a Camera with me all times.What I need is reliability… a phone that turns on when i need to use it to contact someone, something my apple iphone does not do anymore even after going back to apple. I need something i can trust, The teen idiots can and will buy the other “shiny thing” phones. This is a phone for everyone else it seems.

      Well first of all. How the hell they priced the same? I would love to buy the phone there. I think if they are priced the same, i would choose those with extra small features that i would love too have. I would opted for s21. Got flat screen, the best display among those 3, security and software update will surely be the fastest too. Surely the camera wont disappoint with s21. It's not as small as zenfone 8 but not too big as oneplus. Guess the only thing i would be missing is Oneplus Os.
