Asus Zenfone 3 Marked Down By $84 Michael Kwan September 28, 2017 News Well, that only makes sense. If you’ve been ogling the upcoming Apple iPhone X or the svelte Samsung Galaxy Note8, but you notice that you don’t exactly have well over $1,000 burning a hole in your pocket, you’re in luck. Good phones are getting cheap and cheap phones are getting good. And this is especially the case if you’re willing to go back a generation. The Asus Zenfone 3 has now been discounted to just $344.99, representing a $84.01 in savings (20%) over the original list price of $429.99. That’s in Canadian. Since the Asus Zenfone 3 was announced and released last year, it’s been followed up by variants like the Zenfone 3 Zoom. You might also remember that the Zenfone 4 line was just announced last month too, so that means Asus is anxious to let go of old stock. At least, I imagine as much. Just because this smartphone costs about a third to a half as much as top-tier flagships doesn’t mean it’s a slouch. You get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor, a 5.5-inch full HD IPS display with Gorilla Glass 3, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 64GB of internal storage, microSD slot with support up to 128GB, a 16MP rear camera, an 8MP front camera, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The 3000mAh battery can be topped up via the reversible USB-C connector, offering accelerated charging where you’ll get two hours of talk time based on just five minutes of charging. There’s no wireless charging, but I’d argue that fast charging is even more useful. Amazon reviews are overwhelming positive, saying the phone is “great” and “does everything it promises” with “lots of power/punch.” Pick up the Asus Zenfone 3 5.5-inch unlocked smartphone in your choice of black or white on Amazon.ca for $344.99. It ships from and is sold by Amazon.ca directly, so you know service and support will be super quick too. Share This With The World!
