some are missing
– lack of in-screen fingerprint reader, shame for those with sweaty palms (last year they had it, but this year it’s missing, cost saving???)
– lack of telephoto lens, especially because it costs 800€, a 3x like the s22 would have been perfect
– 2 year software update is for mid range phones like red i and oneplus nord… cmon asus!

kudos for the 4300mah battery but with such a small screen unlike samsung 3800mah with even a slightly larger screen

I bet when your favorite brand took a drink you were happy…now you’re not…hypocrite

Finally gone are the convoluted 4-5 camera sensors on the back!

2 should be the max.

I

a compact phone 2022 but at premium prices s22 and iphone 13 would be direct competitors i wonder if there is xperia 5 vi which will also be at premium prices

I

It seems that the Smartphone was good, now a version with 512 GB should arrive, the 256 is already very beaten.

Anders, 11 hours agoToo small Only a 1080p screen Only a 16 million color screen No micro SD Disappointing… more>Too small
According to what standards?
> 1080p display only
On par with the competition. 445ppi.
>Only 16 million color screen
Source?
> No micro SD
It’s really bad
>Disappointing camera setup (no zoom/telephoto)
Every extra lens needs extra space, would you sacrifice ultrawide for a lens whose only use is glorified selfies (portrait modes)?

> Too thick for the small battery size
What exactly is the small 4300 mAh battery? make real comparisons.
> Thick bezels you’d expect on a budget phone
Exaggeration
> Plastic back
Want glass that’s expensive, slips, breaks, and isn’t exactly cool?

>Only 30W charging while many competitors offer 80W
It’s bad but overkill, 30w will still charge in less than an hour.

> And far too expensive at 800€
In part, I agree. The predecessor was vfm. On the other hand, making a premium phone might further motivate Asus to provide proper support.

> It’s DOA. The sales figures will be terrible
It is speculation. It will depend on a lot of things, we don’t know yet. If specs were an indicator of sales, iPhones would never reach #4.

I was going to give it to my wife because it ticks most of her boxes except…

…it needed a microSD card slot or at least a 512GB version. Too bad.

Why are anonymous and anders fighting?

NOT

I’m definitely a fan of its color scheme and labeling on the back, it has a very distinct mecha vibe that I deeply love (much better than the useless “100/120x zoom” or any goofy crap that d ‘other companies like to write).

The overall shape is certainly inspired by Xperia and Huawei/Honor, but for me that’s a good thing because I like their design, especially the Xperia one.

you must be in pain, 13 hours agojust because asus offers a 2-3 year update doesn’t mean the device will die once it hits its mark…. moreThe phones these days are so good that people don’t need a new phone every 2 years.

Anon95, 13 hours agoWell, that’s just narcissistic. There are a lot of people with small hands, just because… moreIt’s the hard truth

More people with small hands will choose a bigger screen smartphone. The market actually proves it

A lot of people might be a million, but in terms of sales that might not be so great and would be very little in the grand scheme of things

What about this tendency to put 2 huge circles on the back? Do they think it’s beautiful?

IDC about the lack of an SD card slot or a plastic back. The battery is not small at all

D

Oh wow, the price is much higher than the last generation. “The back is made of a polymer material that is harder to scratch than plastic.” Isn’t that polymer plastic?
