Asus has created a phone that could only compete on Verizon's tiny roster. At Big Red, you can still get an iPhone 6s for $70 more or the Moto Z2 Play for $20 more, both of which will offer better battery life and are likely to take better photos. In totality, though, the differences between these three phones aren't huge. If you're a Verizon customer, you will be getting a lot of value for $380, as the Asus Zenfone V is a premium-looking device with fast internals, but just don't be surprised if your friends on other networks lord their superior OnePlus or Honor devices over you.

Would I recommend the Zenfone V for the budget conscious consumer? Absolutely, but… It doesn’t live in a vacuum. For a few dollars more, Verizon’s Moto Z2 Play has a better AMOLED screen, more premium aluminum build and support for a growing number of Moto Mods. Best Buy is currently offering last year’s Galaxy S7 edge for only $14.99/mo, which is a much more premium device for less than the Zenfone V. Unlocked Motorola phones like the Moto G5 Plus are more than $100 less outright (with lesser specs to match).

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.
