Asus ZenFone 2E is AT&T's newest affordable GoPhone
AT&T has a brand new GoPhone handset made by Asus: the ZenFone 2E, which is based on the cheap ZenFone 2 ZE500CL, not on the high-end ZenFone 2 ZE551ML.

You can currently buy AT&T's Asus ZenFone 2E from Walmart and Target, both of which are offering it for $119 (no contract required, since this is a GoPhone, pre-paid device).

The ZenFone 2E runs Android Lollipop customized with Asus' Zen UI, and sports a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels. The smartphone is powered by Intel's Atom Z2560 (which is a dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz), further featuring LTE connectivity, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, microSD card support, and a 2200 mAh battery. The ZenFone 2E also has an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, and a 2 MP front-facing camera.

Starting July 24, the Asus ZenFone 2E will be available in AT&T stores across the US. Moreover, starting August 2, the handset will hit Best Buy locations. Is anyone planning to buy this affordable phone?

If your on T-Mobile your better off buying the $199 version from Amazon, Newegg, or B&H. Love mine, though I went the extra $100 for the storage and ram.
