Review of Asus Zenfone 2 at a Glance:-

ZenFone series is quite popular among the people, especially in India low price tag with high features and decent quality is enough to attract the buyers. Asus launched ZenFone 2 with flagship features like 4 GB RAM along with 16/32/64 GB Internal memory, 13 MP primary and 5 MP front camera, Intel 2.3 GHz Quad-core processor and 3000 mAh battery. 
The design of handset is nearly same as previous ZenFone series Smartphone; curve on the back make its grip better; the body is made by quality plastic with faux metal polish. The dimension 152.5x77.2x10.9mm doesn’t feel so bulky because of its unique curved back.
IPS LCD screen has a resolution of 1080x1920 and 403 ppi pixel density; which make Images look crisp with good viewing angles but the phone screen brightness is slightly dull even in highest brightness.

Its CPU is one of the most impressive addition in this Smartphone; 2.3 GHz Intel processor with 4 GB of RAM makes it super smooth for multitasking. The android Lollipop is modified by Asus as Zen UI also allows many customizations. 3000 mAh battery runs normal in this handset gives average battery backup.
