    Asus has been releasing a lot of mobile devices. Its about time to put up their own Asus Service Center for mobile devices. It is so frustrating that when I visited AikonTech (3rd party service center) yesterday, upon inquiry on how much a broken glass of Asus Zenfone 6 will cost, the representative told me that I need to pay a two hundred pesos for diagnosis of the phone that will take for a week. After that, the cost of the screen replacement will fall more or less 7K and repair will take several months. Just for the screen you will pay PHP7,0000.00 which is already the cash amount of Asus Zenfone 5. Asus phones are affordable but when you broke it, repair will cost you as much as a brand new phone.

      Pretty sure they were just trying to rob you. Those idiot technicians at the store are hungry for some cold cash. Who the phuck would believe that horse crap? 7K to replace a broken glass? Were they high on katol?

    • Pat says:

      3rd party tech so probably had to get the part somewhere else where its not sold cheap compared to authorized service centers. I agree that 7k is a bit steep, can anybody who work at service centers confirm these?

    • Raphiduz says:

      AikonTech(Ali Mall branch) is the authorized service center for Asus mobile phones. It is so ironic that ASUS zenfones are sold lower than other brands with the same specs but when its broken, you have to pay more or less 7K for the screen. Asus should take look into this. If this is the after sales service of Asus, I will no longer buy another Asus phone in the future.

      somehow lenovo is better at after-sales problems. i got my p780 mainboard busted last year and lucky to have it replaced without spending a cent. same context, handled by a third party official partner in Greenhills.

    • waito says:

      mura nga magkakanda letche letche ka naman sa after sale service.
      Mas ok pa Sony, Lenovo or even Xiaomi sa after sale service

    • Pat says:

      Im pretty sure busted boards are covered by warranty but not cracked/damaged screens. Well, tough luck!

    12 Hours?

  5. Nemo says:

    Must be wrong 2 hrs must be wrong

  6. Tony says:

    Mali yung 2 hrs. ay naku!!

  7. Tony says:

    Pass sa Fonepad 8. Sana the next Fonepad 9 will be 4:3 screen ratio. :-)

  8. Typo corrected. Battery is 12 hours.

  9. Easy E says:

    this has internals that are better than the zenphone 6, except of course with the camera. Sulit!

    Meh. The Lenovo S8-50 is 12,999 Php and superior specs. 1K more and you get an 8″ 1920×1200 IPS display, LTE, an 8 megapixel camera, more compact body, and a slightly bigger battery (4270 vs 4000 mAh). Tried the S8-50 demo unit at Gigahertz Glorietta and it’s almost like the Galaxy Tab S 8.4. This Fonepad 8 needs a fat price cut.

      Meh. Lenovo sucks. Can’t even provide a KitKat update to Lenovo K900. Nahiya naman ang Asus sa Lenovo nung nag-upgrade yung current-gen Zenfone sa KitKat at may Lollipop upgrade pa this April.

      ^ iniwan na nila K900, Chipset problem
