ASUS  ZenFone 2 Design: Luxurious, ultra-thin Ergonomic Arc design

ASUS ZenFone 2 has a stunning, all-new design employing iconic ASUS design elements that echo the spirit of Zen, with a luxurious brushed metal body that tapers to just 3.9mm on the edges, not unlike the Moto X. The metal body is reminiscent of an HTC design, but the rear-mounted power and volume buttons look more like an LG affectation. That said, the textured metal is similar to ASUS’ own high-end tablets. There’s no denying that the ZenFone 2 is a looker.

ASUS  ZenFone 2 Camera:

The camera in the Zenfone 2 is a big deal for ASUS. It’s a 13-megapixel sensor that’s paired with an f/2.0 aperture and pixel-merging technology for significant improvements in low-light performance. ASUS also says that it has the best HDR out there, but we’ll have to test it out before we can believe that. On the front-facing side, we can find a 5-Megapixel camera.

Asus also made it clear over and over again that its PixelMaster software is available with both cams and offers goodies such as a low light shooting mode that can supposedly snap photos that are up to 400% brighter, though the digital noise at this level will likely be pretty visible, too.

ASUS  ZenFone 2 Mobile Display:

  • ZenFone 2 has an incredibly sharp and vivid 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display with a 403ppi pixel density and a wide 178-degree viewing angle, ensuring lifelike photos and videos and great-looking apps.
  • ASUS TruVivid technology enhances display performance even more with bright, brilliant colors. The display has an ultra-narrow 3.3mm bezel, giving ZenFone 2 a remarkable 72% screen-to-body ratio for a maximized viewing experience.
  • An anti-fingerprint coating reduces friction by 30%, giving a luxuriously-smooth feel to touch gestures.

  • ASUS ZenFone 2 is powered by an up to 2.3GHz 64-bit Intel Atom processor Z3580 and has 4GB RAM to deliver up to seven times (7X)1 faster gaming performance than its predecessor.
  • ZenFone 2 has built-in 4G/LTE connectivity for blazingly-fast data speeds of up to 150Mbit/s plus 802.11ac Wi-Fi, ensuring stutter-free streaming of video and music as well as a smooth all-round mobile experience.

ASUS  ZenFone 2 Battery:

With the ZenFone 2 comes a hearty 3,000 mAh Li-Po unit with support for fast charging tech that will allow you to restore as much as 60% of the total capacity in as little as 39 minutes. This capacity, coupled with the frugal 1080p display would likely mean about two days of normal usage on a charge, but we will run our own tests if we get our paws on the ZenFone 2, and confirm.


ASUS has priced the Zenfone 2 at $199 off-contract and it will be available in March with five different color options.


Speaking of software, the ZenFone 2 is running Lollipop. That’s the good news – it’s also running an updated version of ASUS ZenUI software layer. ZenUI has many great new features — including ZenMotion, SnapView, Trend Micro security and ZenUI Instant Updates — that enhance usability; ensure security and privacy.
