Asus Zenfone 2 Review

Asus, has tried repeatedly to secure itself in being an established name in the smartphone world, but even through all of it, they’ve yet to make any sort of headway – failing to generate any sort of meaningful interest from consumers. However, it seems as though things are changing with the arrival of the Asus Zenfone 2, a phablet-esque sized smartphone that’s priced aggressively at as low as $199 outright!...

I liked my Zenfone 2 (2GB) but I would go with the one plus even tho I never used it before.

I am one of the old and regular members of this site and speaking frankly, you guys suck at reviewing.

I am using Samsung smart phone for years. My last phone Samsung SII for more than 3 years,dropped hundreds of times from all angle and height..never even a scratch till date. Now a sharp contrast..Asus ZenFone 2..says it has gorilla glass but the first fall in 1 week of use and the screen shatters. This is the reason these newer companies does not settle down in market and gain market share..because of such poor quality. Really disappointed. Initially i was advocating for this phone...but not anymore...stay away...

That sucks, maybe Asus didn't implemented a wired TV out option... Even I was against the use of adapter when I had to switch from the Xperia Acro S, I loved the microHDMI option, but now that I have a Z3C with MHL 3.0 and the adapter sent by the Consortium itself, I've come to appreciate the tech behind it and the practicality... but whatever it is, I love having a wired TV out connection. I use it daily for Movies and Games Too bad that Asus is not taking advantage of neither... it is a major con for me.

I'm very interested in this phone; however, the lack of backlit buttons is a deal breaker for me.
