Dave Lee said all previous Zenfones were not worth considering.

He knows his stuff.

Any android one phone (non-google phones) get monthly security updates and got Pie quickly.

I'm sold, if only I could figure out where to buy it. Pre-order on Asus UK store is showing as out of stock.

Seems like the screen is one sub par aspect on this phone.
Chris says its an "Okay" LCD ips panel.
In his review he says the screen is the weak spot.
Similar to one from a medium phone leaning towards a budget phone.
Not a deal breaker, but sure no phone is perfect.

Otherwise it seems like a fantastic phone. And one I'm considering too. Although the Mi 9T might personally get the nod.

It's becoming hard to find a high-end phone with an IPS LCD screen now that the poco f2/k20 has jumped to over too AMOLED. If your a big user of maps (or youtube) this is probably your best device to get.



For that reason alone I think I'll give the F2 a pass and jump on this one as it's life will be in the car running 3 hours screen on per day... even being 100 euro more...

True, it's rumoured the K20 Pro is tipped to be copied for other models.

Mi 9T, possibly with wireless charging etc

Pocophone F2 - no details yet. But I wouldn't be surprised to see a plastic or metal body, but with 8gb ram plus 128gb as the base model. That's what I'm hoping anyhow.

I quite like listening to the radio sometimes if I'm walking around so the fact it has an FM radio makes it appealing. I know if I had a better data plan then this wouldn't be an issue but getting by on 1Gb/month on a very old Tesco Mobile contract which costs me nothing cause of using clubcard points.

Was only seeing sterling price on the UK site. They say a euro price on most reviews but I dont think we can buy from them in euro.

Yep had happened on many phones now. For YouTube it was the bars on the screen (vids were not run full screen) and maps put a dark triangle in the centre on may of my ones.
