Asus ZenFone 6 hands-on
Nothing quite says 2014 when even budget devices start getting all comfy over in 'true' phablet zone, and the Asus ZenFone 6 is a perfect example. Slated for a release with a price tag of $199, this 6-incher is one big phone. Part of the aforementioned all new budget line of the Taiwanese manufacturer, the ZenFone 6 actually offers pretty high value for money, and that sure is its main weapon. We were at CES2014 when Asus introduced the new handset, and we got some quick one-on-one time. Here's what we found out.
Processor and memory
The Asus ZenFone 6

the Mate 2 seems to be really good. I just don't know the price yet. If the Mate 2 is over $300, I would personally pick this Zen 6. It's quite a deal.

Wow 199$ and I thought it couldn't get any better then the Moto G.

Just wait for the reviews. Just because it's bigger doesn't mean it'll be better than the Moto G. I have a Note 3 and a Moto G so I'm not some large phone hater. Honestly I'm amazed with how much I love the Moto G overall. It really is a great phone.

Is it really a good phone because I was thinking of getting one my current phone is a blackberry Z10 I went from Samsung galaxy SIII to this. I love Samsung phones but I just couldn't go with the S4 since I heard about the S5. I wanted to try something new so I went with this Z10 and it's an awesome phone the keyboard takes it all haha. The thing is that I miss a big screen phone the Z10 feels to small being at 4.3" and for 199$ for a 6" I'm sold I feel like if I went for the Moto G it will still feel small and I'm fond of big screen phones. Believe me if I wouldn't have waiting for CES I would be waiting on a moto g.

The Moto G is an EXCELLENT phone. However now I'm getting bitten by the huge cheap phone bug. I'm very strongly considering selling my Moto G and buying one of these Zenfone 6's when they come out.

Is the bottom of the front real metal/aluminum or a faux look?

720p screen is not the problem but 1Gb RAM is.

I don't think this phone will be DOA because the price point is insanely low. Could you imagine if they offered a GPE version of this for $199 and AT&T bands through the Play Store? OMG they'd sell a ton of these.
