Asus is introducing three new smartphones at Mobile World Congress. The Qualcomm Snapdraon 845-powered Asus ZenFone 5Z is the company’s new top-of-the-line model, but it has a relatively affordable starting price of $499.

But the new ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5Q offer similar features for lower prices (although the ZenFone Q also has a special feature: dual rear and front cameras).
