Also sporting a 5.5-inch 1080p display, the Asus ZenFone 4is not as powerful as the Pro model, as it's relying on a mid-range QualcommSnapdragon 630 processor coupled with 4 GB of RAM. The ZenFone 4 has a dualrear camera, too, but this doesn't feature optical zoom, instead letting youshoot wide, 120-degree photos. Also on board are 64 GB of expandable storagespace, and a 3300 mAh battery with fast charging. The ZenFone 4 costs $399,being sold by Asus, Amazon, B&H, Best Buy, and Newegg.
Finally, the 5.2-inch Asus ZenFone 4 Max is offered for $169via Asus, as well as through all retailers mentioned above. The phone isbasically the smaller brother of the previously released 5.5-inch ZenFone 4 Max,so it's got similar features, with a few differences - 4100 mAh battery(instead of 5000 mAh), a Snapdragon 425 CPU (instead of 430), and 2 GB of RAMplus 16 GB of storage space (instead of 3 GB plus 32 GB).
All of Asus' new smartphones have dual SIM support andfingerprint scanners, being compatible only with GSM/LTE carriers likeAT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket, MetroPCS, and so on (Verizon, Sprint, and USCellular are not supported).
