With the ASUS ZenFone 2 has designed a radical plan alter that’s bound to welcome varying conclusions.

Couple this with the brushed metal wrap up of the detachable plastic back, and the phone reminds us of the HTC One (M8) (Review | Pictures), particularly since our review unit was the Ice sheet Gray variation.

The measurements ought to accommodate a 5.5-inch screen, and the weight has moreover expanded as a result.

The phone has measurements of 152.5×77.2×10.9mm and weighs 170g. In spite of these numbers, the ZenFone 2 doesn’t feel chunky since of the bended raise. The phone can be gripped pleasantly but do not anticipate it to be comfortable to utilize with one hand. The foremost discernible change is that the volume rocker has been moved to the raise of the gadget. We saw such an execution for the primary time on the LG G2, and it at that point proceeded through LG’s ensuing discharges. In LG’s phones, the control button is wedged in between the volume buttons, though on the ZenFone 2, the control button is on the beat of the phone.

Unexpectedly, the same design chip is additionally utilized within the iPhone 5s.

The phone too incorporates a decently huge 3000mAh battery beneath the hood.


The essential camera on the Asus ZenFone 5 was a competent entertainer. Shockingly, Asus has fizzled to reproduce that on the ASUS ZenFone 2. We reliably saw average comes about with the 13-megapixel shooter, which ought to have been more capable than the 8-megapixel one on the ZenFone 5. The normal picture quality of the ZenFone 2’s essential camera is however another reason for us to emphasize that the megapixel number doesn’t specifically relate to camera quality.

Within the smartphone colloquial, the prevalent exchange from Creepy crawly Man would be on the lines of “With extraordinary control, comes the require of charging regularly”. Whereas the ASUS ZenFone 2 tastes juice from a bulky 3,000mAh fixed unit, it’s incapable to keep up with its crude control. With direct utilization of calls and web utilization by means of Wi-Fi, it might final almost a day. In any case, utilize it for gaming, web browsing with cellular information and GPS route and the battery drops like a ready apple from the tree.
