Asus Zenfone 2 review

 

Android phone customizations on the very cheap

Inexpensive Android 5.0 phone ; Spacious display ; Lots of RAM ; Two SIM card slots ; Full of customization options

Cheap look and feel ; Dim screen ; Poor camera quality ; Weak power button

The Asus Zenfone 2 fills an interesting niche as an Android phone full of deep customizations, yet one that sells for half the price of similarly sized phablets.

Десять фактов об Asus ZenFone 2 Deluxe

 

Премиальная версия ZenFone 2 во многом повторяет оригинальную модель, поэтому вместо обзора я решил рассказать о ней в рамках рубрики «Десять фактов»

В рознице ZenFone 2 Deluxe продается за 43 000 рублей. В официальном интернет-магазине Asus сейчас проходит акция, и в подарок к смартфону вы получаете внешний аккумулятор ZenPower.

Review: ASUS ZenFone 2

 

The Asus ZenFone 2 is clearly designed as the company's best vision for a modern Android smartphone. That they have managed to make it affordable and available contract-free, really shakes up the market and puts the ZenFone 2 at the very top tier of...

With the 64GB version, it's not an imperative to want to delete many of these apps. For the most part, you can simply place them in their own folder and ignore them if you don't like them.
