The Zenfone 7 pro is such a great phone. The Flippy camera, full screen without notch/punch hole, and expandable memory. Taking group photos with this phone is a god send. I really do hope they continue this line.

The ZenFone 8 is ugly from the back and the front with that silver ring at the level of the selfie that looks really cheap and that huge chin. The ZenFone 8 Fip has no interest compared to the ZenFone 7 and 7 Pro, the 888 is nothing a better processor than the 865 and 865+ which heat much less and therefore keep their stability over time and over long sessions of games or video photos. A very bad vintage for Asus this generation 8.

Very troubling are the Asus support and service that lurks behind. During 2020 and 2021 they were the worst I have ever experienced, in any industry and for any product. Timeline: - Jan 2020: I buy new Zenfone. - Aug 2020: Phone no longer charges, on any charger including Zenfone’s supplied charger. The charging port in the phone is not working. - Aug 2020: Still under warranty, I mail the Zenfone to the ASUS repair center in Grapevine, Texas. This is an unnecessarily complicated process. For example, Zenfone’s support keeps assuming I purchased a laptop, and tries to communicate with me about laptop repair. - November 2020: I receive the Zenfone, apparently repaired. (But the data on my phone has been wiped out.) - March 2021: My Zenfone stops working completely. No power, no blue screen, nothing. - March 2021: ASUS assures me I will be charged only a diagnostic fee of $85, to have the phone assessed and then repaired. - March 2021: ASUS then tells me I’m no longer under warranty, which ended in Jan 2021. - March 2021: ASUS then tells me I am still under warranty, which was extended because of the previous problem with the Zenfone in 2020. - April 2021: I again mail the Zenfone to the ASUS repair center in Grapevine, Texas. - April 2021: ASUS then tells me I’m in fact not under warranty any more. - April 2021: ASUS then tells me actually I am under warranty, which was extended for an additional 3 months. - April 2021: ASUS then tells me I’m in fact not under warranty, which supposedly expired “2 December 2020”. - April 2021: ASUS then tells me my warranty in fact expired on “8 March 2021”. - April 2021: I ask to escalate the issue. (At this point, ASUS Customer Service is already the worst I have experienced, ever, for any product in any industry.) - April 2021: ASUS maintains that my warranty is expired, but offers me a “20% discount” off their fee to repair the dead phone, which is $289. I ask to get a better deal, given what I’ve had to go through in owning this ASUS product. ASUS tells me they will check with their Corporate dept. - April 2021: ASUS calls me back, telling me they can take 30% off the fee, to repair the dead phone. - April 2021: ASUS then sends me an invoice for the full amount of $289, with no discount. Also, the invoice description of the problem is wrong, as it says “Hangs on ASUS logo” (instead the phone does not respond at all). I call ASUS and ask them to correct the invoice. - April 2021: ASUS then sends me a new invoice for this repair, for an even higher fee of $362. The invoice also states a completely different problem: it includes a $97 item (plus tax) and a $243 item (plus tax) both for “abnormal appearance (deformation/scratches/damage/paint removal/dirt/rough edges)”. I call to tell ASUS it should be lower, as we had discussed. And to tell ASUS my phone was not physically abnormal or damaged in any way, when I had sent it to their repair center. And that this new invoice is completely different from their prior invoice. (At this point, it is becoming apparent to me that what is happening at ASUS here is not merely total incompetence, poor training and poor management, but possibly something worse.) - April 2021: ASUS contacts me to say they erred, and should have sent me an invoice for $231. I then correct them again, saying no that would be only a 20% discount off the repair fee. ASUS had told me my discount was 30% off (for $216). - April 2021: During these interactions, I keep having to tell ASUS that my phone is to be repaired at the discounted rate, but nevertheless ASUS keeps sending me e-mails stating that my phone will be sent back to me unless I pay the (undiscounted, incorrect) invoice amount within 5 days of the invoice date. Repeatedly ASUS assures me that my phone will not be sent back to me, that it is on track to be repaired at the rate they had agreed to, and that I will no longer receive these e-mails pressuring me to pay within 5 days. Yet, the e-mails are not stopped, they keep coming. - May 2021: ASUS sends me another invoice for the incorrect, higher amount ($362) and the incorrect problem: “abnormal appearance (deformation/scratches/damage/paint removal/dirt/rough edges)”. - May 2021: I contact ASUS, escalate the issue, and ASUS tells me they will have someone contact me in 24-48 hours. 24-48 hours pass by, with no call from ASUS. Meanwhile, ASUS continues to send me invoices, and a payment deadline, for the incorrect rate of $362. - May 2021: I contact ASUS again, escalate the issue. ASUS assures me that they will stop sending me e-mails asking for payment of $362, and will contact me about correcting it. - May 2021: ASUS “Proactive Care” sends me an e-mail stating that an internal failure to correct the invoice “has triggered the return of your device unrepaired”. The e-mail also states that once I receive my unrepaired Zenfone, I can re-create the return, ship the phone BACK to ASUS (at no shipping cost to me) and “continue this process”. (I’m thinking, Uh… no thanks.) - May 2021: Sure enough, I then receive the Zenfone, returned to my home by ASUS. Unrepaired and dead. To all: enjoy your ASUS experience.

I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:5) Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. (Psalms 51:1-4)

I've been doing research on getting a new phone and just came across this now. I'm sad to hear the prospect of the company potentially moving away from this flip-up camera design. I dunno. For me, since I grew-up during the height of cell phones and all of their wild designs, I want to have options like that again. I want companies to give me a smart phone that pushes on design. Stop giving me these bezeless bricks. Just change it up. I feel like everyone has been chasing Apple since they started this keyless screen fade and no one has really even tried to reimagine it again. I'm probably the outlier but I just want something different.

In the ZenFone 8, they stacked the motherboard together (like iPhones do) to make room for more battery. Not only the headphone jack is back, but they added DAC too. That's why the 8 is the true flagship. Their concept is to "defy ordinary". But I do hope they put the flip camera in the 8 because it's very unique. Maybe we'll see it next year.

You said you're disappointed cause they made the non-flipping-camera phone, but you said yourself you didn't use (a phone with) the flipping camera system. That's exactly why they decided to make the non-flipping-camera phone. I mean, what is it for them if just a few people use that kind of phone? You yourself don't use the phone as your daily phones, considering yourself "appreciate" technology.
