    Two things I forgot to mention is the other day it sat for 13.5 hours and only lost 3% battery, runs 6.0.1. And others have said the speaker is tiny and weak. I find it loud and clear. Doesn't have the bass of the 6s but plenty loud for me. Those reports may have been for the 5.5 version that does have different hardware.

    After I days use i'm pleased with the performace. The extra LTE band in the deluxe does make downloads with CNN and AP News apps faster when compared to my 6S with the same apps. SkyView is just as fast as on the 6S as is Outlook. Battery life has been good and will get me past a 15 hour day doing games, texting, email, and reading the news. But it wont beat the 6S. That really is the iPhone's big and only advantage. I do have everything on the Asus turned on. Weather updates every 2 hours, email ever 15 minutes and set to push. All location services with the apps I use. By the end of day one it was at 35% then plugged in. It'll charge twice as fast as the 6S. I went from 29% to 100 in one hour 15 minutes. My 6S is over two hours easy.

    Newegg now shows 12/16/2016 as available date, B&H Photo was showing unknown availability date, now maybe the end of November. Asus sent me an available email but was sold out by the time I went to their website, probably just going to hold off and see if this phone takes off and actually becomes available in quantities.

    Try Amazon. The only area where this phone doesn't compare to my 6S is battery life. It's good, but not as good as the 6s Plus. Is it worth a $400 difference? No. Save $400 and get this phone over an iPhone.

    Is this phone already discontinued, stopped production, or is Asus having problems. It appears that Asus has put this phone on their low priority list. The Asus US website seems to be perpetually out of stock and I'm pretty sure that's not from any high sales demand.
