Asus isn’t best known for its smartphones, but the Zenfone 2 series has certainly swept people off their feet.
The Zenfone 2 series is among the first ones to offer 4GB of RAM on board. Entry-level household and office computers come with that much RAM… in fact, I’m writing this article from a 4GB RAM laptop PC! That is how much mobile tech has evolved in the past couple of years.
Specifications of the Zenfone 2 include a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 2/4GB RAM, 16/32GB on-board ROM, 13 mega-pixel/5 mega-pixel cameras, and 3000mAh batteries. The Zenfone series is all Intel powered, so there’s bound to be a difference in single-core performance thanks to the architecture on which Intel CPUs are built. While the 2GB RAM version comes with the Intel Atom Z3560, the 4GB version features the Intel Atom Z3580.
The Zenfone 2 series is now on sale for $290 for the 2GB RAM version, and $367 for the 4GB RAM version on GearBest… interested buyers can also use coupon code ‘ASUSZ2’ to get the prices down to $252 and $338.
It appears as of now that the 2GB RAM version is on pre-sale, with orders scheduled to ship in 10 days from now. Anyway, do let us know if you jump the gun on any of these models, and why!
