Asus was always a known brand in terms of laptops. But I’m just sweep off my feet after I used Asus ZenFone 2. This phone was launched at the CES, this year. Along with ZenFone 2 was launched Asus Zenfone Zoom, but somehow ZenFone 2 has won mine as well as many other users’ heart across the globe. No wonder they have sold so many ones across the globe and also won the Design Award 2015. Below are descriptive reasons why my favorite phone should be on everyone’s wishlist.
The ZenFone 2 has a very classy look with surprisingly very thin edges of 3.9mm. Owing to the thickness, the Volume button has been sent to the back. The phone has a very professional and classy look and the back side is so designed so as to minimize the chances of the device to fall off from the hands. The phone has neat curved edges.
Zenfone 2 has a handsome display of 5.5 inch with 72% screen-to-body ratio. The screen has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, thus making viewing a pure bliss. To safeguard the screen, it’s encased in Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to prevent this beauty from getting any scratches or safe it from an unwanted fall.
ASUS loves to keep its customers updated with the latest OS! So you get the Lollipop version of Android here. You have 2GB RAM and 4GB RAM to choose from. Accordingly the processor and clocking spped varies. For the 2GB RAM variant, you get 64-bit Intel quad Processor Z3560 clocking at 1.8GHz and for the other variant you get 64-bit Intel quad Processor Z3580 clocking at 2.3GHz. Zenfone2 has Power VR G6430 GPU for taking gaming experience to another level.
Touch and ZenUI
The touch of the ZenFone 2 is enhanced with the ZenUI. The ZenUI has been developed to give you a more elite experience of the ZenUI altogether. It has 1000+ new features. To name a few would be – ZenMotion, SnapView, TrendMicro Security and ZenUI Instant Updates. These features are brighter, simpler and neat. These features gives a much better experience to users in term of usability, security and privacy.
The ZenFone 2 is armed to 2 cameras, which graces on both sides of the head. The front camera is a 13MP camera. And the rear camera is 5MP camera. We all know how much we love clicking – whether selfies or sceneries. There are some features which make clicking with ZenFone 2 as absolute bliss.
The HDR mode or the PixelMaster Backlight ensure the captured pictures to look 4X brighter and much better colour contrast after processing. It automatically captures multiples images. These captured images are then processed under ASUS Pixel Enhancing technology, which expands the dynamic range. This gives the images 4X brightness and much better colour contrast. With all this altering, the photo still continues to look as natural as ever.
The Low Light Mode is also 4X better. The Pixel Merging technology clubs up 4 pixels to form a new one. This makes the ZenFone 2 4X more sensitive to low light. Noise is also reduced by 4X and shoots up the colour contrast as discussed earlier. All this, without the LED Flash coming into picture.
The other usual camera features includes auto focus, dual LED Flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, panorama and HDR.

Storage is very important. More storage, more fun! Zenfone2 has a gigantic storage of 16GB or 32GB or 64GB. That’s not all. It can be further expanded with the help of a microSD card to 64GB.
