Asus, a few days ago, launched the much-awaited flagship, the ZenFone 5Z in India. The company has priced the smartphone in such a way that it directly competes against the OnePlus 6. The ZenFone 5Z sports a notch up front and has a dual-camera setup at the back. Even with all these features and looks, if Asus failed to impress you, here are some alternatives you can look for.

Samsung launched the Galaxy S8 back in 2017 and the device has received a lot of price drops since then. Though the Galaxy S8 is last year’s flagship, it still holds up well in 2018.
