If you want to buy a smartphone that has a powerful performance but is available at an affordable price, this surely seems to be a good time. A few days back, Xiaomi slashed the price of its Mi A2 smartphone in order to stay ahead in the segment that it is currently leading. The company also reduced the price of the Redmi Note 5 series when it wanted to achieve a milestone that it achieved. And now, Taiwanese smartphone maker Asus is offering its Zenfone 5Z smartphone at a discounted price as a part of ‘Asus Days’ that is going on Flipkart.
Customers can avail a massive price cut of Rs 8,000 on Asus Zenfone 5Z smartphone if they purchase it from Flipkart between January 9 and January 11. So, today is the last day when you can avail this offer. The smartphone was launched in July last year as a direct competitor to OnePlus 6. The base model of Asus Zenfone 5Z (review) was priced at Rs 29,999 at the time of launch. while the product received positive reviews and people who bought the smartphone were happy with it, the price point was such that Asus Zenfone 5Z did not garner too much popularity in a segment that was already dominated by OnePlus. The launch of POCO F1, which offered the same processor at a lesser price, did not help much either.
It is worth noticing that the discount on Flipkart is only available on the 6GB RAM/128GB internal storage model and the 8GB RAM/256GB internal storage variant of Asus Zenfone 5Z mobile. This may be because the two models were even more costly and were priced at Rs 32,999 and Rs 36,999 respectively. Considering that the smartphone is powered by Snapdragon 845 chipset, which was the latest in the market at the time of the smartphone’s launch, we don’t consider this pricing to be too high. However, with Xiaomi’s POCO F1, customers were getting the same processor at an even lower price.
After the reduction in price, the 6GB RAM variant of Asus Zenfone 5Z will be available at Rs 24,999, while the 8GB RAM model will cost Rs 28,999. At less than Rs 30,000, it is a good deal to buy either of the two variants of the smartphone.
