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?

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.

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 keys -> LG G3 or so...
Flip cover -> G3
Display -> i beg LGD :D
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
