Asus Zenfone 2 Review

Overall Build and Design

The rear cover design arrives in rounded form, coined as the Ergonomic Arc, and is made of plastic in brushed metal finish. This back cover is removable, and can be customized to your preference and style with various designs of folio case to choose from. However, the 3000mAh battery is nestled tight and cannot be removed, but definitely lasts long. The Asus Zenfone 2 is made with dual SIM card slots, where one works with 2G data, and the other slot can work with 2G/3G/4G data. This smartphone is bounteous when it comes to storage. It comes with an internal 32GB storage capacity, and you can put in a microSD card for additional space of up to 64GB.

There are only a few buttons to find in this device, right at the back which is the volume rocker, and on the top middle which is the power button. Home, Multitasking, and Back Buttons are in its capacitive form up front and flat, which does not have a backlight and lies right above the metal portion at the bottom of the phone. Overall, it may feel a bit bulky, but gives you that durable feel and holds a dependable quality that will last long.


The Asus Zenfone 2 presents the ideal size of a 5.5-inch screen. It comes in a full 1080p HD display that gives off 401 ppi. It features a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, which delightfully does not attract smudges or become blurry fingerprints, and same goes for the rear cover as well.

Though it's not super AMOLED bright, considering its affordability, the display is satisfyingly sharp and crisp. Images appear vivid and texts are quite clear. The IPS panel allows for better viewing in different angles, with settings adjustable to make it legible even under sunlight. Topped with the ZenUI skin, the look is similar to other Zenfone generations, but it comes with more pre-loaded apps that are mostly Asus proprietary apps.


The front camera front gives you a well-lit and fairly good selfie pic of 5MP, while the rear camera gives you a 13MP photo built with Asus PixelMaster 2.0 technology. The shutter speed can be a bit slow, and you must be wary of shaky hands, but the color composition and quality of your photo makes up for it. It has a dual-LED flash, and the Asus Zenfone 2 photography is still a plus compared to other inexpensive phones. You can do Panorama, Time Rewind, create a .GIF moving image file, and many more!


Asus has bestowed the Zenfone 2 with both awesome and reliable features. Its 64-bit Intel Atom Z3580 processor is complemented with the 4GB RAM capacity, and is actually the first smartphone to exhibit these qualities. The Atom Z3580 is a quad-core processor that is clocked at 2.3GHz. This makes it almost parallel to the Snapdragon phones that also come with a huge dragon-like expensive price! It also comes in another version with an Intel Atom Z3560 quad-core 1.8GHz processor with 2GB of RAM.

The Asus Zenfone 2 also holds the PowerVR 6430 GPU, the Android 5.0 Lollipop OS. The phone supports Wi-fi 802.11ac and the latest Bluetooth 4.0. Altogether, these components make for a speedy device that is not compromised with lag and slowing down. Whether for calling, taking videos or gaming, everything runs smoothly on this smartphone. However, games are best set on their low to medium settings, because you may start to notice lag if on full-blast highest settings. You could rather just immerse on a desktop experience anyway if it's what you're after.


Whether you are upgrading and want to get in on the latest trend, looking for a new phone packed with tons of features, or the budget savvy type, you will find the Asus Zenfone 2 perfect and is bound to meet your demands of a smartphone. Acquiring this phone can save you even more, as what you have learned in this and possibly other Zenfone2 reviews, it's contemporary build inside and out will not require you to do any upgrading or replacing in the near future.
