Asus has been a name for computers, laptops and tablets. Asus is also developing smartphones, with several listed on the best smartphones of 2015. The Asus Zenfone 2 is one of those smartphones. What does the Asus Zenfone 2 have to offer? Well, lets take a look at all the buzz.
First the Asus Zenfone 2 is thin, sleek, and resembles something you would see if the Moto X had a baby with the LG G2. The body is thin on the edges and thicker in the middle like the Moto X but has buttons on the back like the LG G2/3. The Asus Zenfone 2 supports two SIM cards and the display is the IPS capacitive touchscreen. The screen is a 5.5 inches and has a Gorilla Glass 3 for protection. The Asus Zenfone 2 has Android Lollipop v5.0, an Intel Atom Z3580 with a Quad Core 2.3 Ghz processor – if you get the 4 GB of RAM model- or an Intel Atom Z3560 with a Quad core 1.8 GHz processor- if you get the 2 GB RAM model. The Asus Zenfone 2 comes with 16, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage with a microSD slot that supports a microSD card up to 64 GB. As noted above, the Asus Zenfone 2 has either a 4 GB of RAM or 2 GB of RAM. Just wondering if there is a reason to have so many choices, I understand that for people who can't pay a lot, you can the smaller amount of RAM with the smaller amount of internal storage, but why not just offer a 2 GB version with 16 GB of internal storage and the 4 GB RAM with the 32 or 64 GB of internal storage?
The Asus Zenfone 2 camera is 13 megapixels and has autofocus, dual LED flash and HDR technology. The Asus Zenfone 2 can video in 1080p and has a nice 5 megapixel front facing camera for selfies. One of the best things about the Asus Zenfone 2 camera is that even in low light, the PixelMaster camera takes stunning pictures as it boosts contrast by 400 percent. If the camera works this great, this could help the Zenfone 2 with sales since everyone always wants a better camera.
The best part about the Asus Zenfone 2 is the price tag. The Zenfone 2 will retail around 200 bucks! With the nice features that are higher end, you would have expected a bit higher price tag. With the price alone, this phone should be on the top of many lists. If you are in the market for a nice phone but cannot afford the major brands, then I would be giving the Asus Zenfone 2 a try.
For Asus, they usually have great products. Asus is known for their performance as well so the Zenfone 2 is on the top phones of 2015 list for a reason. Asus isn’t just stopping with the Zenfone 2, Asus has taken a tip from Samsung and there is also a Zenfone 2 Zoom. The Asus Zenfone 2 Zoom has an external lens to zoom in extremely far- it changes your smartphone to the digital camera just with a touch of a button. For those who love to take pictures with your smartphone, do not have a digital camera or for those who only want to carry one- you get both in one device. The Asus Zenfone 2 and Zenfone 2 Zoom, it is no wonder these 2 phones have hit the top 2015 smartphone list.
