    Newer, cheaper and with better specs phones from China are coming.

    Too late!

    • MrPhabletBulacan says:

      too late for what? the zenfone lineup are budget phones, similar/slightly better performance to other midrange brands (ex T2 Ultra/Grand 2) yet it even beats most phones in the camera the department. zenfone lineup is also budget friendly almost nearing the prices of absurd quality local brands yet this is a trusted brand. Gaming wise this runs most games smoothly too…

  3. Ged says:

    nung i-announce itong zenfone na ito gustong gusto ko to, talagang hinihintay ko ma release dito sa ph kaso sa sobrang tagal bago marelease may mga nagsulputan ng mga mas decent specs at affordable price.

  4. Drakkar says:

    These devices are ideal for budget-concern consumers. And when its a budget phone, expect some cutting of corners in one way or another.

    Moving that aside, gusto ko masubukan itong model na ito (Zenfone 5) para malaman ang kapasidad ng Intel Processor para sa mobile devices. Isa rin sa gusto ko malaman ay ang quality ng camera output lalo na sa low-light conditions (tapos ma-shi-shrink siya 4x lower in size… ata).

    June is just around the corner. :)

    sana d ganun kamahal pag dating sa pinas mis kim… kim store.com.ph please bring this beautiful device for us hehehe

  6. engrfrog says:

    at last.. hehe.
    sana lng no price bump

  7. MrPhabletBulacan says:

    Good, im eagerly awaiting Zenfone 6, sana around 10k lang presyo nya dito sa pinas ^_^

    Meron din ako tip sa inyo sir Abe, aside from china brand mediatek phones mukhang itong Acer Iconia Tab 7 ang unang Mediatek phone (albeit 7 inches) na Android 4.4.2 Kitat https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtwJJujJ998
    even if gsmarena havent posted the soc brand. Mobilegeeks clearly stated that its a mediatek device, probably MT6582…. this will do battle with Asus Fonepad 7 which only has 4.2.2 Jelly Bean yet almost identical specs.

  8. Blue says:

    I can’t believe they’re making available a product almost half a year after announcing – smartphone to ha.

  9. abuzalzal says:

    Intel? Haha

    avoid avoid

    liban na lang kung gusto niyong mag prito ng itlog sa likuran phone niyo

    they still havent solved their overheating woes. Hilaw pa sila sa SoC business.

    • ram says:

      Unless you can afford a mobilephone size fan and be a laughing stock of everyone xD dont forget the laptop dilemmas malakas tlga uminit ang intel, even the lenovo that housed tue intel SoC ay malakas maginit

  10. RaM says:

    • Drakkar says:

      No info yet. I’ve emailed ASUS ph – no reply yet. I’ve inquired via their FB page – no reply yet.

      Gusto ko rin sana maconfirm kng ang Zonefone 5 ay may 2GB RAM option gaya ng Zenfone 6.

    • bryan says:

      @drakkar

      ang zenfone 5 may 5gb ram/16gb rom version na available sa taiwan, at pumapatak lng pag converted from NTD to php ay 6500. mababa kasi tax nila

    • bryan says:

      *****ang zenfone 5 may 2gb ram/16gb rom version na available sa taiwan,

      *sorry nagkamali, haha 5gb amputa LOL

    • JPSoriano says:

      kpag ba sa taiwan bumili? mag kakatax paba dito sa pinas o hnd na? ano ang advantage at disadvantage ng pagbili ng phone in other country??

    • oli says:

      kapag ikaw mismo bibili, dadaan ka sa customs sa airport pag uwi mo dito sa pinas. nasa sa’yo na yan kung idedeclare mo o hindi. kung ayaw mo ideclare, wag mong iuuwi ng naka box. obvious na sa ibang bansa mo binili kung naka box pa yung phone pag uwi mo. mas ok kung itatapon mo na box, iuwi mo na lang yung mga importanteng laman ng box.

      kung bibilhin mo online at ishiship ng courier / shipping company, may tax yan. yung ibabayad mo sa shipper, kasama na tax dun sa total shipping cost.

      advantage – karaniwan mas mura lagi sa ibang bansa

      disadvantage – hindi lahat ng products global ang warranty. kung bumili ka sa US tapos US warranty lang, kapag nasira yan sa Pinas, mas mahal pang ibalik sa US para maayos.

  18. JPSoriano says:

    last question,, kelan ang official launch ng zenfones dito sa pinas? june what??

  19. bryan says:

    just checked it, zf6 2gb ram and 16gb rom is only 9300php sa taiwan, converted na yan from new taiwan dollar, nagpabili nko sa kakilala ko dun
