Way back in 1989, Asus started out as a consultancy service for motherboard manufacturers. According to industry legend, Asus got a leg up in the industry after designing a motherboard for Intel's 486 CPU without access to a processor, even fixing problems that Intel's own engineers had had.

Asus ZenFone 2 Summary

The Asus ZenFone 2 is the world's first smartphone sporting 4GB of RAM, which is its USP by far. In our experience, the 4GB of RAM was more than enough for running 20 apps simultaneously. The phone also provides great gaming performance thanks to the presence of the PowerVR graphics chip, which is the same one that is present inside the iPhone 5s. The only problem with the ZenFone 2 is that the camera captures images that look average at best. Also, Asus confuses potential buyers with a lot of skews for the same ZenFone 2.

  • Worse phone showing high configuration and the actual usage experience is very poor
    Sadaf Mateen Baig (May 25, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    worse phone with such a high configuration. Has heating issues and also battery doesn't long for more than 20 hours even without usage. Though the specifications shows 3000mah battery.

  • Great phone,
    David Sakvoits (Dec 12, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    Great phone with lots to offer, i would rate 4 1/2 stars only due to the pure amount of unnecessary software. I have seen some people complain about it "only having 2G" this is because they have placed the sim card in the wrong slot. Overall great phone especially for its price. If you are looking for a slightly stronger phone look for the ONEPLUS TWO at a higher price it out preforms this phone by a bit and is easier to you but will cost around 100-200 more. Both fantastic phones and for day to day use i would recommend the Zenfone2

  • The smart budget phone with loads of specs, appealing to masses(4 GB RAM, 64 GB ROM)
    ABHIJIT Decipher (Jul 28, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    This phone is one of the most appealing and powerful budget phone to have come out in the market in 2015. I am using the phone for a month now, and fully satisfied and happy with the performance and the optimum usability of this phone at the price point. The stock OS is buttery smooth to operate running latest Android 5(lollipop), with 4 GB RAM providing powerful performance and usability to run apps and play games without a lag in conjunction with the powerful processor it has, the storage is awesomely huge with 64 GB internal with expandable slot too till 32 GB making it a powerhouse store room. The only bloating point is the battery back up and the camera quality which can be manageable though the heating issue subsides with subsequent updates in firmware. The patented quick charger from ASUS makes it really fast a process of charging the phone, but the battery doesn't withstand even 11 hours of single use. In all, with due respect to the company, they have come up with a very good performer and the smart phone worthy of being kept for ages.

  • Asus Zenfone_2
    Sandesh Kumar (Aug 19, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    Asus_Zenfone2 phone was dropped from just 2 feet height and the whole display broke into pieces. I do not understand the purpose of Corning gorilla. Instead the fiber or plastic display do really well. After this, Other phones of other brands were made to drop under the same conditions to get the same level of impact, which resulted in neither getting a small scratch on the glass. Its unworthy in investing on Asus products!!
