The Asus Zenfone 5Z was the first phone among many to join the league of devices which come with the top end Snapdragon 845. Followed by this phone, we got to witness many new devices like the Honor Play and the Poco F1 which meet the expectations just right when it is about performance. The Poco F1 in this segment took the market by storm by debuting with a price tag which was below Rs 25,000. Now, this new price tag might dull the shine of the Poco F1 thanks to the latest offer which the Asus Zenfone 5Z is going to come with.
During the Big Billions Day Sale on Flipkart, the Asus Zenfone 5Z will be retailing with a discount for Rs 5,000. With this price reduction, the Asus Zenfone 5Z will be competing head-on with the Poco F1 during this time. Also, there will be a lot of takers who will prefer the Asus Zenfone 5Z over the Honor Play with this discounted price tag.
