    for Asus Zenfone 5z (Sept 24, 2018 updated on Dec 11, 2018):

    18,000 for a 636 in Zenfone 5? And that’s after a “huge” price cut already? Nokia looks cheap compared to this. Asus you must be joking.

    the xiaomi mi A2 SD660 4GB/64GB would have been better if it had 3500mah. too bad xiaomi only placed ~3000mah battery in it.

    if i were xiaomi, i’d put at least 4000mah battery even in flagship models.
    it is not like rich people will not buy the latest phones. it would benefit some of us who always receive hand-me-down-from-last-year-phones.

    asus move of putting 4000-5000mah in some phone models is really good.
