[Asus Zenfone 2] Review - Bargain mainstream flagship mobile
#1
See the top five 3GB RAM phones




Still not sure? Get help in the Which phone should I buy? forum.

Asus came on the phone scene with the Zenfone 4, 5 and 6 about a year back. It wasn't overly popular with the China phone crowd, but they have something that many China brands do not -- a global retail presence.

A little history regarding Asus. Originally Asus manufactured boards and components for name brand computer manufacturers such as Dell and Gateway. In a nutshell, after seeing these companies making huge profits off of their technology, they decided to get in on the pie by creating their own full computers and laptops.


Fast-forward to today and Asus is an internationally known brand, always pushing the edge and innovating with products such as the Asus Transformer Pad and ultra-thin Asus U36 notebook.


Thus it comes as no surprise that they're now pushing in on the smart phone tech game. Their 2015 release is the Asus Zenfone 2. Simplifying their phone line in terms of size, they've done away with the diminutive Zenfone 4 size, and are focusing on what seems to be the sweet spot for consumers these days with a 5.5" display.

Zenfone 2 forum
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
If you're betrayed, release disappointment at once.
By that way, the bitterness has no time to take root.
