Good point. At pre-order time, the Amazon ad-supported nodel was $125, but is now $150 and exclusive to Prime Members (factor in tax from Amazon for a lot of folks as well).


Currently, the standard unlocked 16GB model retails for $199.99. Some folks may not care for the Amazon ads (not sure if Amazon nerfed the ability to disable, some reports suggest yes). There was also the 64GB G4 Plus for $200 that some got in on at Microcenter, though a lot of orders got canceled. Mine included laugh out loud)

Some notable differences to consider: 32GB built-in storage out of the box for the Asus (can add microSD to MotoG4 as well, and use adoptable storage w/ Marshmallow, but depending on the card used, can impact speed/performance). The Zenphone also has a fingerprint sensor and the Adreno 505 GPU, which should give a slight performance boost in some games over the G4's Adreno 405. This phone also supports Dual SIMs. While I agree the G4 makes for a strong contender, guess it comes down to buyer's preference. Think both have their own sets of strong and weaker points when compared side by side, for around the same price.

Inaccurate info. This has all the bands except for 12 which is meaningless. Will work on both ATT and T-Mo.

This is the US version. I was hoping for band 12 support as well but no Frown.
Anyway, is band 12 mainly for future proof when t-mobile launches VOLTE everywhere ?

P.S - I believe this phone should be compared to G4 plus and not G4.

Why you want Band 12 for T-Mobile. [spectrumgateway.com]
It's nice to have, but not necessarily critical for everyone. It really depends on your area and usage. Of course it's better to have it and not need it, that to need it and not have it. All devices that list Band 12 in the specs are not necessarily T-Mobile VoLTE compatible, however. As a side note, Band 12 is fairly slow.

So can anyone confirm Verizon Bands are active on this phone? NEVERMIND---->Compatible with GSM Networks including AT&T, T-Mobile and cellular network providers utilizing GSM network such as: Straight Talk, Walmart Family Mobile, MetroPCS, Simple Mobile, Brightspot, Net10, h20 Wireless, and Cricket Wireless.This device is not compatible with CDMA Networks such as: Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular


All i see is GSM listed?

Compatible with GSM Networks including AT&T, T-Mobile, Straight Talk, Walmart Family Mobile, MetroPCS, Simple Mobile, Brightspot, Net10, h20 Wireless, and Cricket Wireless.

US/BR version:
3G:
WCDMA: Band: 1/2/4/5/8
4G:
FDD: Band: 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/17/28


No Band 13 for Verizon
