Screen is bigger(5.5") not comfortable to hold in a hand n for daily regular use. 5" is the ultimate end of a smart phone size n perfect size too.
design, originality = lg g3 > zenfone 2
performance ( lg g3 vs zenfone 2 ) = ????
camera prowess ( lg g3 vs zenfone 2 ) = ????, but if in low light, pixel master is the best.
form factor = zenfone 2 > lg g3 ( zenfone 2 is a tad bigger than lg g3 )
bang for the buck = zenfone 2 4gb ram is cheaper than lg g3 3gb ram variant
which one should i buy ? zenfone 2. it's newer. priced less. not really into camera and 4k video recording. it's not yet available so getting the lg g3 with lollipop update is still feasible. then again if you go with more details ( screen reso., vid. recording wise ) lg g3 is still the beast. however if your on a tight budget, zenfone 2 is none the less will get my 100% bet.
i hope they will put radio on it cause i love streaming on radio every night before i sleep.
Anonymous, 11 Jan 2015intel means poor battery for smartphone and cause so much heating issueThat's not absolute until you see performance figures when the phone gets launched. Here's a tip: why not compare battery performance of Atom Z25xx devices with Z35xx devices released, that is, if you can find equally matching specs?
Fidz, 12 Jan 2015Should i bought this or the zenfone 5??If u can then wait for 2 month of buy ZF5. Its also very good phone in affordable price and now u can buy 16GB ZF5 in 10k on Flipkart in discounted price.
Its really good deal.
I am very happy with my Zenfone 5.
Anonymous, 11 Jan 2015intel means poor battery for smartphone and cause so much heating issueNo, New Zenfone2 series will come with 3000mAh lithium-polymer, Fast-charging technology. And it can be charge the 60% battery in only 39 minutes. I think they have resolve the heating and battery backup problem in new series, bcoz it comes with new updated intel 64-bit Intel Atom Quad Core Processor.
Lena, 08 Jan 2015It is misleading to everyone who have heard about iphone 3,4,5,6 or samsung galaxy S 2,3,4,5, ... more
Before that they using screen size for naming like- ZF5 -5", ZF6 - 6"
but this time ZF2 means 2nd generation.
I think they changed their product naming rule or else.
And I agree with u ZF2 its not attractive name for new Asus zenfone series.
Fidz, 12 Jan 2015Should i bought this or the zenfone 5??Zenfone 2 is better than Zenfone 5 in every aspect. So, the former definitely!
why dont u compare the spec of g3 and this phone insted of commenting on the design
lets see what the beanchmark score after launch

zenfone2 ?is trying hard to copy g3 but no it cannot be like the beauty of lg g3 look at those thick bezel and too wide zenfone phone ugly, but the g3 is beautiful.
i advice you to see the lg g3 (LG Isai VL )japan you will see zenfone2 copied that button on the back.
asus is cheap and trying hard to make a phone.
Anonymous, 12 Jan 2015wow that's fugly. and a shameless copy of lg's rear buttonsYou work for LG? Ugly phone? Why? LG G2,G3 also have same design. so that means LG G2,G3 is ugly phone? Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML only got volume up & down button at the back. No power button. Power button is on top of the phone. Is that a big deal just because of the button placement? :)
Minaj, 12 Jan 2015Asus is Taiwanese company not chineseTaiwanese is Chinese! You should say Asus Zenfone 2 is a Taiwan branded not China brand phone. :)
I'm happy that i have not bye Samsung Grand Prime almost the same price and the specifications more than what one can expect
I'm waiting for launch
