We expect that telecomtalk mentions that Asus Zenfone Max pro M1 and Asus Zenfone 5Z support dual volte standby which means slot 1 is Jio sim and slot 2 provides volte of all GSM networks like Airtel, Vodafone and idea. Dual volte standby phones are very few currently and it is a requirement.

It’s dual VoLTE and dual sim standby. They mentioned a while ago that the 5z comes with dual VoLTE. I’m getting this for my dad and sis if I get the money xD

Negatives of Asus zenfone 5z :
> No OIS for rear camera
> No sAMOLED display
> No autofocus for front camera
> Less battery capacity than Samsung S8+ and S9+
> No auto focus and OIS for 2nd rear camera (S9+ has AF and OIS for both the rear cameras)

Then why don’t you buy an S9+? After all, price difference doesnt matter right? Throw out your note 4 and a9 pro, and get s9 plus. It won’t be that hard no?

I simply replied to your illogical points. You are comparing a well priced product to a product which almost cost a kidney. The way you are reacting shows you need immediate medical help. Get well soon.

Price doesn’t matter right?? Then compare S9+ with Huawei Mate RS…
Or stop comparisons and just buy one…

Comparison should be done on price, then ‘facilities’

If not, then should an S9+ be compared to A6+ ?
