Asus ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition carries 128GB of memory, 4GB of RAM and works in the U.S.
Back in June, we told you that Asus was about to launch in Taiwan, a version of the Asus ZenFone 2 with 128GB of internal memory, and 4GB of RAM. That version is now available in the U.S. with support for AT&T and T-Mobile's network. It is also compatible with GSM flavored pre-paid networks like Straight Talk, MetroPCS, and Cricket Wireless.

The Asus ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition, as the handset is dubbed, features a Gorilla Glass 3 protected 5.5-inch IPS display, carrying a resolution of 1080 x 1920. That works out to a 403ppi pixel density. An Intel Atom Z5380 SoC is inside, carrying a quad-core 2.3GHz CPU and a Power VR G6430 GPU. 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM is inside, along with 128GB of expandable native storage.

A13MP camera is on back, carrying an aperture of f/2.0, which allows you to take quality photos under low-light conditions. The front-facing 5MP camera also comes with an aperture of f/2.0, and includes a wide angle lens. A 3000mAh non-removable battery keeps the lights on, and there is support for 4G connectivity.

Priced at $399, the phone is now available from the Asus store, New Egg, B&H and Amazon.

$400 is the new sweet spot for all smartphones in my opinion. There's so much value/performance at that price point that you'd be hard pressed to justify paying more unless it's about status.

If only I could Windows 10 with x86/64 Continuum programs when connected to an external display, this would be one of my next phones.

Heaps of storage for all that lovely Asus bloatware. 128gig is still pretty sweet.

Gorgeous from the front, not so much from the back.

Z5380 is since 810 throttles very quickly.

Exactly, Intel's CPU's beat the s**t out of SD this year, if only they offered 4.5 inch version of it :

I was hoping Google would have used an Intel chip for the 5X.

I have a Zenfone 2 and it's a pretty good phone. The only thing I don't like is the overwhelming bloat. It has by far the most bloat I have ever seen on a phone.
