It was only at last years Mobile World Congress, ASUS was the envy of all by announcing they would be the first to have a 4GB RAM phone. Now 4GB RAM is pretty much a standard, well not content being yesterday’s hero, ASUS are doing it again by announcing the ASUS Zenfone 3 Deluxe will be the very first phone to use the new Snapdragon 821 processor. The Snapdragon 821 processor is said to be 10% improvement over its very successful predecessor the SD 820. As you all may or may not be aware, the Snapdragon 820 was virtually the go to processor for this years Flagship Devices. It was widely being reported that the Galaxy Note 7 would be the first phone to feature the SoC,however it looks like Samsung and Xiaomi have been pipped at the post by ASUS. The Snapdragon 821 has a higher clock speed (2.4GHz) and is much more power efficient than the SD820. The Zenfone 3 Deluxe sounds absolutely perfect, even just reading the devices specs,You hear yourself saying “I WANT ONE” It comes with a 5.7” FHD screen, 6GB of RAM, variations of internal storage capacity starting at 64GB and keeps going till you reach a massive 256GB. The Zenfone 3 Deluxe also comes with a huge rear shooter of 23MP which features ASUS’s very own TriTech Focus. Whats all this gonna cost?,I hear you ask,well, the top of the range Zenfone 3 Deluxe with Snapdragon 821 with 6GB RAM/256GB ROM will set you back about $776, which by all accounts isn’t too bad, considering what you get for your money.
If you think that’s a bit out of your price range , you have the ASUS Zenfone 3 Deluxe with Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage which comes in at around $496. But if you think you could do with extra RAM there is another that comes with the Snapdragon 820 and 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage for around $559. The Zenfone 3 range definitely sounds like they are worth a look.
