ASUS Announced their super-mega storage device ASUS ZenFone 2, a special edition earlier this month, with a “Wow” 256GB Storage. If you live in Brazil, you may never need a Micro-SD card again. Though the phone doesn’t look pretty but it’s a very strong phone and with N65,000 budget, I think this phone is cheap compared to the likes of Samsung, LG and HTC which doesn’t necessary out-performed this phone except for its poor camera quality.
The ASUS ZenFone 2 is an Android phone with deep customizations, and yet it sells for half the price of similarly sized phablets. Android tinkerers who want to invest a lot of time into customizing their phone also have to pay full price for a flagship. But the Zenfone 2 turns that concept on its meditating head. But the phone is lacking in the aspect of design, it is plastic and it looks plastic with horrible design. But with a lot of RAM and Storage its a good phone for game lovers and also great for efficiency.
The phone has a IPS capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors display, with a size of 5.5 inches (~70.8% screen-to-body ratio). It has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (~401 ppi pixel density) and the screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
ASUS ZenFone 2 Deluxe ZE551ML is running on the latest Android OS, Android 5.0(Lollipop). It’s running on 64bits, so don’t expect much lags, with Intel Atom Z3560 chipset and Quad-core 2.3GHz processor.
It has a 4GB RAM, and if you ever think 256GB is not enough you, you can still use up 128GB Micro-SD.
It has a 13 MP, 4128 x 3096 pixels, primary camera with autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash, Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, panorama, HDR. Video recording is 1080p@30fps. The front camera is 5 MP.
