Four months on, the Zenfone 2 remains a great option for the budget conscious, especially as prices have came down to around $380. I had a good impression of the phone at the launch event, and my original thoughts / comments still stand, I took it for a spin the last week or so and here’s an updated impression of the phone.
As a quick recap, the ZE551ML is powered by an Intel 2.3 GHz Quad-core processor, with 4GB of RAM, a 5.5″ Full HD display, a non-removable battery, and a micro SD expansion card. There are other versions of the Zenfone 2 as well, and more recently, ASUS announced in Brazil a Zenfone 2 Deluxe edition with a whopping 256GB of internal storage. It’s for those who want to carry around their entire digital library with them.
