Probably my next phone. I'm very happy to see this situation on smartphone market. Now we can buy phones that have almost same specs as top Samsung,Lg,HTC... phones for the third of their price! Chinese competition has cached up and unless we see big inovations from mentioned companies they will be in problems...but this is good for buyers because we will finally see new interesting things on this market.
Anonymous, 11 Jan 2015intel means poor battery for smartphone and cause so much heating issuehey i think this phone will not overheated again because Intel Atom Z3580
have 22nm Lithography
The specs/price look like dream come true. Most advanced, nice size - no more than 5.5" screen. That is what Nexua 6 should have been like but it isn't. I would like to see it and try it in my hand. I am almost sold on it. I have the Lollypop 5.0.1 in mine Nexus 5 and it is good. I'm getting used to it. Just wonder if the Zenfone 2 will have all the capabilities of Sony or Note 4. I will definitely consider the 32 or 64 g memory with the 4 G RAM. I have ASUS PC and is awsome. let's bring it out ASUS.
i need to know more about the 2gb version. it seems like the 4gb is being too boasted.
Asus copied lg back button haha its not an issue because nobody cares about zenfone 4,5,6 when it copied samsung or Sony or HTC side button
To hot phone because I like its design and which type of features I want there is in the phone ,l love it
gautam0097, 11 Jan 2015Price is low but that doen't mean that it also has feature as compared to S5gimmicky feature such as heart rate monitor,useless fingerprint scanner,etc. ??? no thanks buddy..we need a phone that most of it feature is useful..

What has model names or numbers got to do with the phone itself or even its performance? This model names or numbers may have more meaning to their respective manufacturers like Product IDs, Batch Numbers, Inventories, Catalogs, etc. as they suggest how their assembly/factory line flow.
You wouldn't honestly think, Nexus 7 and 10 were newer generations after Nexus 6, now would you?

Also if you haven't known it already, their first generation of Zenfone and PadFone S have already been scheduled to get the Lollipop update this coming April while their new PadFone Infinity are set for a June update

It's very obvious from the specifications on asus.com that the long list of LTE bands is just all possible bands and that they will have just a few for each region (region dependent as it says).
John, 11 Jan 2015There are 2 versions of it one with 2g of ram and one with 4g of ram. Maybe 2g is 5inch screenno both have same size screen.for me anything beyond 5' screen is difficult to handle, hope they release 5' version with same specs in future.
We don't mind from where asus copied or not, we need features and good hardware, and asus providing both in 1/3 of the price of g3,s5 whatever you say.
Watch linus tech tips CES regarding this the 5.5"screen fits in the palm of the hand nicely & comfortably... The Specs is also great with 2-4 Gigs of ram..

So asus should change the model No. of Zenfone 2 to Zenfone 7.
For my understanding of my low I.Q, zenfone 3,4,5,and 6 are the genereation 1 and Zenfone 2 is the second generation.
