ASUS is the largest Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer. In 2016, ASUS was able to significantly bypass the sales of smartphones by another Taiwanese manufacturer HTC due to the replenishment of its catalog line of Zenfone 3 models, which pleased the customers. If we compare Asus with manufacturers outside of Taiwan, then we can say that Asus offers better models than Chinese brands( except perhaps that Huawei), but the price is somewhat more expensive than that of the Chinese. If you compare with the smartphones of Korean brands and iPhones, then the advantage in price is already on the side of Asus, and twofold( if it's about the flagship models).At the same time, ASUS positions its new flagship ZenFone 3 Zoom as a model that is not inferior in quality to the seventh ayfon.
Help with the choice of the optimal model for buying the Asus model will help this rating, which is compiled according to reviews in the Yandex-Market, technical specifications and the "price-quality" ratio.
