Asus is a brand quietly known for good mid range phones. But this time, they have gone so far and recently launched next generation of ZenFone series with a huge price tag. Here I am leaving all the spec shit or this kind of things. I am just sharing my thoughts based on crazy pricing. Let’s have a look all the new ZenFones-

  1.  ZenFone 3 (5.5-inch variant)
  2. ZenFone 3 (5.2-inch variant)
  3. ZenFone 3 Ultra
  4. ZenFone 3 Laser
  5. ZenFone 3 Deluxe

ZenFone 3 Laser sports a Snapdragon 430 processor with 4Gigs of RAM, full metal body with 5.5inch Full HD display covered by Corning Gorilla Glass.

ZenFone 3 both 5.2inch and 5.5inch versions have same Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor (16nm chipset). ZenFone 3 sports a 16MP rear camera with OIS and an 8MP front facing camera.

ZenFone 3 Ultra is a phablet and ZenFone 3 Deluxe is the most premium among those handsets comes with a Snapdragon 821 processor with 4/6 Gigs of RAM.

Now pricing:
  • ZenFone 3 (ZE520KL) at Rs. 21,999
  • ZenFone 3 (ZE552KL) at Rs. 27,999
  • ZenFone 3 Ultra (ZU680KL) at Rs. 49,999
  • ZenFone 3 Laser (ZC551KL) at 18,999
  • ZenFone 3 Deluxe (ZS570KL) starts at Rs. 49,999, with the Snapdragon 821 model priced at Rs. 62,999.
Now my all impressions and thoughts end here.
“Seriously, what is wrong with you Asus?” is the first thing came to my mind. Though first time Asus changed their design language and they look pretty cool. Even processor wise they took one step ahead. This time, Asus goes with Snapdragon Chipset instead of Intel’s Chipset.

But the problem starts with pricing. ZenFone 3(Base Model) is available outside of India around 15k price tag but they launched it in India 22K for the base model. And ZenFone 3 laser comes with a Snapdragon 430 processor which is priced at 20K? Come on Asus. Are you kidding?? And The craziness went too far when they priced ZenFone 3 Deluxe 6GB RAM variant at 62K(I am hoping this should be priced at around 30K). So who would buy this phone? This price point any people out their go for Apple’s iPhone or Samsung, LG, HTC‘s latest flagships. Don’t get me wrong.

Those are good phones with good set up cameras but due to Crazy Pricing, I can’t recommend you any of these phones right now. So just share your thoughts about New gen of ZenFone series.

But if you are still keen to buy Zenfone 3, buy the base model (5.2 inches) from here
