Asus ZenFone 2 Smartphone Review

 

4 GB of RAM! We all knew it was inevitable, but it's finally here -- the first major consumer smartphone with 4 GB dual-channel DDR3 RAM. Not only that, but it can also be had for just $300. Is this 5.5-inch monster enough to lure users away from...

Attractive design, Massive 4 GB of RAM, Fast system performance, 1080p IPS display with high contrast, Dual-SIM support, Rigid chassis, Clear speaker and reception

Faux brushed metal; Plastic and polycarbonate materials, Thicker than competing 5.5-inch models, Below average battery life, Average display brightness, No CDMA version, Soft pictures from camera, No USB 3.0 or MHL, Non-removable battery

For a $200 to $300 smartphone, the ZenFone 2 makes a strong case against more expensive 5.5-inch devices, especially from a design and performance standpoint. The device itself is physically quite large, though no less difficult to grip and use. It's...

Review: Asus Zenfone 2

 

The newest massive Android phablet from Chinese manufacturer Asus takes the idea of a "computer in your pocket" quite seriously.

Snappy and rare high-end Intel processors and plenty of RAM. Handy gestures can launch specific apps from standby. Fully customizable skin. Ultra-cheap, considering what you get. Comes with 5GB of free cloud storage forever, and 100GB of Google Drive...

Large bezels, poor choice of materials, and too large of a body. So much plastic! Heavy, hard to work with one hand. Capacitive buttons are not illuminated. Comes with a ton of redundant apps that are a chore to get rid of

Asus ZenFone 2 review: Don't judge this phone by its cover

 

It may look bulky and cheap on the outside, but its 1080p screen, generous storage options, and solid performance is worth its $300 price tag.

Generous amount of storage offered—64GB in addition to a MicroSD expansion slot ; The UIs native theming capabilities are seriously so cool

Too. Much. Bloatware ; It isn't the prettiest phone on the block, but it will do

If you're looking for something a little more powerful than the Moto G with a slightly better camera, the ZenFone 2 is worth considering.

Asus ZenFone 2 review

 

Can a $300 smartphone stand up with the best Android devices out there from heavyweights like Samsung, LG, and HTC? That's what Asus is trying to answer with the ZenFone 2. It's not alone either —...

Appealing low price ; Fast, lag-free performance ; Asus' software allows deep customization

Disgusting amount of bloatware ; Camera falls apart outside of ideal conditions ; Generic design with bad button layout

ASUS ZenFone 2 Review

 

It's time to get a handle on ASUS' best effort in the affordable smartphone space yet. This is the ASUS ZenFone 2, and it's more than ready to take on the rest of the unlocked, low-cost, high value smartphone space. This device isn't mean to take on...

If you’re in the market for a new phone, you’ve got a data plan with AT&T, T-Mobile USA, or any other GSM-based network, and you’re upgrading from a phone that’s a couple years old or older, the ASUS ZenFone 2 is a SOLID choice. Especially at this...

Asus ZenFone 2 (Unlocked)

 

The Asus ZenFone 2 is the most powerful smartphone you can get for $299, but it isn't the most aesthetically appealing one.

Amazingly fast and powerful for the price. Good camera. Dual SIMs. Lots of memory

Big and heavy. Dim screen. Heavy Android skin. Too much bloatware

I can't believe the Asus ZenFone 2 costs $299. In terms of sheer power per dollar, it's unmatched. The ZenFone 2 has everything and the kitchen sink: 64GB of storage plus a memory card slot, two SIM slots, enough RAM to flip between several large games...

The ASUS Zenfone 2 Review

 

When I think about ASUS, the first thing that comes to mind are their PC components like motherboards, GPUs and the like. I also think of their desktop and laptop computers. Part of that is probably due to my longstanding interest in PCs and PC gaming,...

Throughout the course of this review you may have noticed that I often compared the ZenFone 2 to high end smartphones like the Galaxy S6, the iPhone 5s and 6, the LG G3, etc. You may have felt that it was unfair to do so, as those smartphones will cost...

Asus ZenFone 2 ( 5.5in, 16GB, 2GB RAM)

 

There is a cheaper 2GB version of the phone retailing for $199 (converting to £127 and AU$249); however, since we've as of yet spent no time with the 2GB version, we can't yet say how it performs compared to the its 4GB sibling. Both versions of the...

The Asus ZenFone 2 delivers smooth performance, an impressive low-light camera, and has a clean feature-rich UI. The 5.5-inch screen is sharp and bright.

The phone has a cheap bulky feel and an unintuitive button layout. Its non-swappable battery delivers only decent life. The price is too high for its above-average capabilities.

The Asus ZenFone 2 is too expensive for its above-average ability, but if the price agrees with you, the smooth performance and splendid low-light camera won't disappoint.

ZenFone 2 (5.5-inch) review:

 

If the 4GB version of the Asus Zenfone 2 were $100 cheaper, it would be near the top of our recommended phones list; however, its $299 and S$499 (converting directly to about £245 and AU$475) price makes it a tough sell in a world of capable sub-$200...

The ASUS ZenFone 2 Preview

 

ASUS is not new to the smartphone market. Since the days of Windows Mobile (not the new Windows Mobile) they've been selling smartphones. But when it comes to Android devices they've been primarily focused on tablets. ASUS worked with Google to design...

Depending on which model you get, the ZenFone 2 will come with either Intel's Atom Z3560 or Atom Z3580 SoC. The former has a max boost clock of 1.8GHz, while the latter has a max of 2.33GHz. It's also important to note that the more expensive model...
