ASUS ZenFone 3
As we said above, everyone is trying to emulate the success of the Moto G. A company doing a great job is ASUS with the ZenFone 2, 3, Deluxe and more.
ASUS' ZenFone 2 was one of the best phones for the price in 2015, and the 3 was one of the best cheap phones in 2017. No one would ever think this device is as cheap as it is. With a beautiful metal design, big display, fast internals and more all for a low price. It's one worth considering.
The ZenFone 3 comes with a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 Full HD display, a Quad-core Snapdragon 625 processor with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, 16 megapixel rear and 5 MP front cameras, a large 3,000 mAh battery, and supports 4G LTE. As you can see, these are very capable phones.
They run Android 7.0 Nougat and come in a few different variations. From a ZenFone 3 Laser for only $199, to a high-end deluxe model for nearly $400. The best choice is the middle ground option. Honestly, we even recommend getting a refurbished Zenfone 5 for $165.
