Well, I may stand corrected. Even though the Thailand and Malaysia websites for the KL phone make no mention of an IPS display, the ASUS global website for this model does describe it as an IPS display.
"ZenFone 2 Laser (ZE500KL) is equipped with a 1280x720 HD IPS display that offers wide 178-degree viewing angles. The staggering 294 ppi pixel density renders every image in eye-delighting detail."
Really poor marketing and customer information on their part -- unless they're using different displays for the same model of phone in different regions where they sell.
Both the ASUS Thailand and Malaysia websites spec pages say the ZE500KL has a 5 in TFT display, but no mention on either of IPS. So I'm kind of doubting the people here saying IPS, since I see no evidence of that, and neither does the GSMArena specs page make any mention of this model's display being IPS.
That aside, the thing that really worries me about this model is how's a 2070 mAh battery -- the variety being sold in Thailand -- going to do in powering a 5 inch display? Perhaps because it's not a IPS display or even Super Amoled, the screen they're using will have less battery drain. That could also explain why this model is being priced quite low relative to most of its other specs.
BTW, the KG model official specs only show an 8 MP main camera, while the KL model shows a 13 MP main camera, so people confusing the two may account for some of the confusion here.
PPS - For those posting here that the KL has an IPS display, can you please post a link to some official ASUS website that actually shows that for the KL model. Because, all the ASUS spec pages for the KL model that I'm looking at make no mention of IPS.
The other standard ASUS difference between their KG and KL models is the G means its only 3G capable, while the L means it's a 3G and LTE model. They're both ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500 phones, but the KG vs KL versions may have different other specs as well, beyond just having or not having LTE. Pay attention to the FULL model # details for whatever phone your checking/shopping for. This GSMArena thread is for the KL model with LTE. There's a separate listing for the KG model with 3G only. Don't confuse the two -- even though ASUS's model naming makes that pretty difficult.
