All the 3 smartphones share one thing in common – a much better and evolved design.

6 GB RAM Smartphones Are We Moving Too Fast!
While we had got leaks some days back about the Upcoming Zenfone 3 line of devices it was not rumored to come with 6 GB of Ram.
I can’t really stop myself from writing this – Are the smartphone manufacturers moving too fast in the specs race, is the 6 GB new norm for the Flagship devices, is your LG G5 or HTC 10 (yet not on Sale in India) is already looking a bit outdated ? The Answer is Yes, we are moving too fast.
Too fast to hit the mobile hardware specs upper threshold soon.
There was a time there was a similar race for PC and Laptop now there is none, nobody wants a 24 GB or 32 GB Ram laptop or PC unless you are a hardcore gaming enthusiast or a professional.
We are blissful and content with great experience and other refinements on these devices. But smartphones are moving fast.
Asus today unveiled 3 New smartphones the Zenfone 3 Deluxe , Zenfone 3 ultra and the Zenfone 3, with different screen sizes and hardware specs.
