Is this a good deal?

Fine but be aware that the 430 chip is a low end product. This is a very basic phone.
The 430 isn't bad and has QC3.0 I think. It's more of a lower-mid chipset unlike the 410 that was clearly a low end chip.
Notice how the whole range has moved down market. The Zenfone 3 is now midrange, and the 3 laser is using a lower end chip. The previous Zenfone 2 laser was using a mid range chip

Unfortunate for a little more you will get a much better camera experience.
I picked one up yesterday for $370. Which phone is going to provide a much better camera experience for $400 or less?

Was the zenfone 3 on sale too? Retail = 429 ish * 0.90 = 386+tax . You got it 370 include tax?

Price match for $411 @ Direct Canada - 10% = $370 before tax.

Still deciding on this and the OnePlus3.Neutral Face

So far it has been fantastic.

The build quality is excellent. It reminds me a bit of my iPhone 4 from back in the day but flattened. It just feels super solid in my hand.

Everything I've run has been super smooth. But I don't play any resource heavy games.

The ZenUI doesn't bother me. Once you're in an app, it's the same as any other Android phone anyway.

Amazing battery life. Haven't charged it in over 24 hours and it is still at 73% battery life.

The screen is superb. No problems viewing it on the sunniest days. It goes really bright.

Haven't noticed any issues with the camera yet but that's a hard thing to really determine without matching pictures with other cameras.

Audio quality with headphones is great.

The only issue I have is the buttons on the bottom are not lit. That's a really minor thing though.

Thx for the quick review.

Does Asus now include original headset in ZF3? Would it be included in all variation of ZF3 (WW)?
