ASUS Zenfone 2 Specs and Price

Best Jumia Tech Week Deals

The ASUS Zenfone 2 is one of those smartphones we are getting to see more of around these days that deliver more value for money. It packs an impressive lineup of specs for its price, including a massive 5.5-inch display, Android 5.0 (Lollipop) software and a very generous memory of up to 4GB RAM for high responsiveness.

ASUS Zenfone 2

 

Design and Build Quality

While ASUS Zenfone 2 boasts a bit of premium quality in terms of features, it does not fare as good when it comes to design and build quality. The phablet features a plastic design, although the rear looks like brushed-metal finish.

Considering its curvy backside, the ASUS Zenfone 2 could not manage to get any close to the high-end Galaxy S6 in terms of thinness at 10.9 millimetres. It also weighs a bit at 170 grams, but this should not really be an issue given the specs it boasts for its pocket-friendly price.

Display and Camera

ASUS Zenfone 2 crams in a large 5.5-inch display, which puts him in the phablet territory and on par with the LG G4. However, the LED-backlit screen has a Full HD (1080p) resolution for a brilliant pixel density of 403 ppi – still decent for the price, given the iPhone 6 Plus also features a 1080p display.

In the camera department, the device packs a 13-megapixel Toshiba sensor with dual-LED Flash on the rear and a 5-megapixel shooter on the front. Both cameras have Full HD video recording capability.

Hardware and Software

The ASUS Zenfone 2 phablet is driven by a quad-core Intel Atom Z3560 processor clocked at 1.8GHz for the entry level model and Intel Atom Z3580 processor clocked at a speed of 2.3 GHz for the top of the line model.

Backed by PowerVR Series 6 G6430 GPU and 2GB or 4GB of RAM, the chip should make for impressive multitasking and enjoyable gaming experience. The affordable ASUS Zenfone 2 runs on an Android 5.0 (Lollipop) operating system overlaid with its maker’s ZenUI.

Other Features

Onboard the ASUS Zenfone 2 offers a 16GB storage or a 64GB storage, with this being expandable by up to 64 GB using a microSD card. The phablet packs a large 3000mAh battery, which has larger capacity than the one on the more-expensive HTC One M9 and Galaxy S6.

Connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, micro-USB and Wi-Fi a/b/g/n. ASUS Zenfone 2 supports two micro-SIM cards.

Pricing and availability

ASUS Zenfone 2 is not available in Nigeria. ASUS does not currently offer phones in Nigeria so the availability of this phone in the country is in doubt. If and when available, ASUS Zenfone 2 Price in Nigeria is expected at around N32,000 to N75,000.
