Deal: Amazon is selling the Asus ZenFone Zoom for $249 ($150 off)

Amazon's Countdown to Black Friday Deals Week has been going on pretty much ever since the beginning of November, and it's already been home to some pretty solid offerings. One of the most notable ones thus far has been the Nextbit Robin for just $169.99, but if you're in the market for something with a camera setup that's a bit more impressive (and certainly a lot more unique), we've got a feeling you might be interested in this deal.

As part of their Countdown to Black Friday promotion, Amazon is offering $150 off of the Asus ZenFone Zoom. This brings the cost of the phone down to $249 from $399, creating for a total savings of about 38%. Just what do you get for $249 though? First off, let's talk about the elephant in the room - the camera. The ZenFone Zoom features a 13MP camera on the back that is capable of delivering 3X optical zoom. This means that you're able to zoom in with the camera sensor up to three times without losing any photo quality, and it really is quite impressive that Asus was able to pack all that power into a relatively slim and trim body.

Other specs for the phone include a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS display, quad-core Intel Atom processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 3,000 mAh battery. Bundle all of that with the impressive camera system that the ZenFone Zoom is packing in, and you're looking at a rather attractive package for $249 - especially if you're a photography nut.

Don't even bother buying an Asus phone I bought the zenfone 2 and it lasted me 5 months, from one day to another I was suffering from a ghost touch screen, called Asus to repair it and supposedly I filed a claim but when I called them back to ask why the return box was taking so long the rep told me I never filed a claim, I even gave her a confirmation number which turned out to be fake, I explained the previous rep screwed me over and they didn't care plus they said my phone was out of warranty that they couldn't fix it. So here's some advice don't buy an Asus phone especially from Amazon.

That's bad. I have never bought an Asus product before. Is your retailer an authorize dealer?
