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.

146mm TALL VS. 152mm TALL
72mm WIDE VS. 77mm WIDE
8,9mm thickness vs. 11mm thickness
G3 is the ORIGINAL while Zenfone3 is a copy for the Back button and G3 is supported by many developers and GOOGLE for more and fast software updates. NYA? it's just intel inside he he he

Back cover design -> G3
Back keys -> LG G3 or so...
Flip cover -> G3

so only RAM is innovative, CPU is good :) but what about copy? well but in price? this phone beats everyone
very good specs but sadly this time asus launched only one size 5.5' screen which is too big to handle and use it think 5' would have been the best size.
I wanted to buy this device but the big size is not good for everyone

Txzi, 10 Jan 2015Nowadays only Asus makes a thicker phone than its predecessor. For god's sake, hire a design ... moreEverything is designed, even cheap throwaway stuff. Personally I'd be more interested in price/performance than looks, but each to their own. If you think a design team and prettier thinner case will make for a better phone then more power to you :)
