When ASUS announced its ZenFone 4 lineup last month, there was no word on when they would be making the device available to its customers in the US and Canada.

Today, it has been reported that the ZenFone 4 Max 5.5" is finally available on Amazon, Best Buy, B&H, Newegg, Abt, and the ASUS Store. This device is available at a price of $199.

The ZenFone 4 Max 5.5" is just one of the devices that make up the ZenFone 4 lineup. It comes with a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with a 2.5D curved glass and a body made with aluminum-alloy. The device runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor with 3GB of RAM and a storage of 32GB. It includes a 5,000 mAh battery that can last up to 46 days of 4G standby time. Camera-wise, the ZenFone 4 Max 5.5" has a dual 13-megapixel configuration with the second camera equipped with a 120-degree wide-angle lens.

Apart from the ZenFone 4 Max 5.5", the other devices that ASUS announced last month include the ZenFone 4, ZenFone 4 Pro, and ZenFone 4 Max 5.2". While the ZenFone 4 Max 5.5" is now available in the market, the other models won't be released until the last quarter of the year.

    2. Thanks for the link but I have no idea what bands it has / is missing in relation to AT&T & T-mo current deployment and announced future build out over the next year or two.

      How well does it cover AT&T & T-mo bands? How "future proof" is it?

    1. For a phone to be elligable to be usable on a carrier is it enough to just include the radio bands or must that model be registered with the carrier.

      I think that all it needs is the radio bands, if it required that it be registered so when I pick up a small no name brand GSM phone that has the radio bands for ATT/GSM and it does work, should I assume that it was the radio band antennas that made it work or also the additional need to register?

    2. For GSM based networks like AT&T and T-Mobile, the phone just needs the proper bands. For CDMA based networks like Sprint and Verizon the phone must also be whitelisted by the carrier.

  3. Phones aren't built to last and hardware components wear out, so I wouldn't spend more than $150 on a potential one-year device.

    1. Incorrect.

      For Sprint, only devices that have their IMEI's in Sprint's Database can be activated. If they don't sanction a device, then it will not be possible to activate the device even if it has full support (i.e. ZTE Axon 7).

      However, it's different for Verizon. Activation is tied to the SIM and not the device unlike Sprint. If you have an already activated Verizon SIM then it will work in any device that supports the network. If a device has some level of support for Verizon, you'll have some level of service once the network settings are adjusted. Devices like the Axon 7 work fine with Verizon as they have full support for the network with all CDMA/LTE Bands. Some Nexus devices are in the same boat. The phone absolutely does not need to be whitelisted to work.
