A friend lately asked me about the ZE550KL vs. the ZE551ML. Here's how I answered him:
Re the ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE551ML, I was looking at GSMArena re the specs for that older, more expensive phone, vs. the newer and lower priced Zenfone 2 Laser ZE550KL
As best as I can see, the 551ML model...
--is an older version, and uses the Intel chipset instead of the Snapdragon on the KL.
--has the same 5.5 in. size screen, but higher resolution in terms of display pixels (401 vs 267 ppi).
--has variants with more ROM and RAM, including up to 64 GB and 4 GB.
--has a non-removable battery, whereas the KL has a removable battery. But same mAh in both.
--includes AC wifi access, whereas the KL only has up to N wifi.
--includes band 4 LTE 1700-2100 Mhz, whereas the KL lacks that band that's used in the U.S.
--has Gorilla Glass 3, vs. Gorilla Glass 4 in the KL.
All in all, to me, a mixed bag. For me with the KL, I like having the lower price, a removable battery and I've heard the Snapdragon chips are likely a better choice than the Intel ones. I'm not sure the difference between 267 vs 401 ppi on the display is a big deal. But, I would have liked to have had the ML's access to AC wifi and the 1700/2100 LTE band for the U.S. But as with the world, everything has it price.
