The Asus Zenfone 5z is going on sale from midnight, end of Sunday exclusively on Flipkart. All the three variants of the flagship will be available from 9th July, 00:00 starting Rs 29,999. The phone was launched in India last week with hardware similar to the OnePlus 6, but at a price much lower than the flagship killer.

The Zenfone 5z is powered by the flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset and sports a 6.2-inch display with a notch. There are three memory and storage variants — 6GB RAM and 64GB storage priced at Rs 29,999, 6GB RAM + 128GB storage priced at Rs 32,999 and the 8GB RAM and 256GB storage priced at Rs 36,999. At the back is a 12MP+8MP dual camera unit with the secondary sensor offering a 120-degree wide field of view. Additionally, there's a 3,300mAh battery underneath with support for Qualcomm Fast Charge 3.0. The phone also touts dual speakers each with its own NXP amplifier. 

Effectively, you can also get the phone at Rs 3,000 lesser if you use an ICICI debit or credit card to pay for the phone. Furthermore, Jio customers can avail up to 100GB of additional data and cashback vouchers worth Rs 2,200.

Flipkart is also offering its mobile protection plan that covers almost every aspect of the phone including display and water damage, at a discounted price of Rs 499 with the phone. There are no cost EMI options as well.

Should you buy the Asus Zenfone 5z?

In our review of the Zenfone 5z, we noted that the phone is quite a well-rounded device offered at a shockingly low price. There wasn’t any glaring faults on the surface and the hardware offered is top-notch (pun intended). The UI might take some time to get used to but the AI-enabled features aren’t so bad. It’s sufficiently fast to be considered an alternative to the OnePlus 6. However, the OnePlus 6 is a little more fast and fluid. It’s UI is a lot cleaner and the phone receives regular updates and a healthy support from the developer community along with reliable customer service. Asus doesn’t have a good track record of pushing out updates on time and the Zenfone series has not received a serious response from the developer community. Yet, the Zenfone 5z is a lot cheaper than the OnePlus 6 which starts from Rs 34,999 for the 6GB+64GB variant. The top 8GB+256GB variant will be available at Rs 2,000 more.
