Pinch me I think I’m dreaming. Is this real life? Is this just fantasy? (Caught in a landslide.) Asus has finally announced the official availability and pricing of their new ZenFone 5 lineup and they’re really good. I mean, extremely good. Like, specs, build and camera quality has never been a problem for the brand, but pricing has always been on a steep incline – until now. Asus is back with a vengeance, and may just offer the Philippines the most affordable Snapdragon 845 phone to date.

So let’s break this down. The standard model ZenFone 5, which a 90% screen to body ratio notched display, AI camera scene recognition, OIS 4K capable snapper, and all that good stuff – is only PHP 19,995. Impressive.

Asus ZenFone 5Q – PHP 16,995 (Available Now)

I’m not gonna bore you with a history lesson – let’s just say the previous ZenFone model was much higher priced than this. In fact, the higher end variant this year, the ZenFone 5Z lands near it at PHP 29,995. And this new flagship is a doozy. It’s got everything the 5 has, but with more RAM, ROM (6 and 128GB), and a Snapdragon 845. That’s the most powerful processor today and on par with brands costing nearly twice.

To say that these offers from Asus are great products is a huge understatement, and we’ve very happy to see the brand aggressively priced again.

Anyway, if you’re excited as we are for these new, affordable ZenFones. You’ll be happy to know the 5Q, 5 and Max M1 are available now, with the 5Z flagship arriving in June.

So what do you think? Are you going to pick up the 5 or the 5Z?
