WELL SAID! exactly my point!
Synthetic benchmarks are exactly that, synthetic - not real-world uses. They give an indication of possible maximum performance. In actual real app use by most people, this phone should run smoothly even with "only" 2GB unless one is a power user.
Some say not all apps run on the intel chips - if so, please give sources, examples, links, instead of going "because it's obvious LOL". It's not obvious. No review I've seen mentions that this or that app couldn't run, or was running noticeably slower, or was lagging whereas it was smooth in another phone with similar specs (or more importantly, lower specs). However, no review I've seen has _tested_ for it, either. There could very well be some ARM-to-Intel coding translation happening that takes a bit of time, in whatever microseconds, to happen - but if the Asus engineers know this (and they should), and have built the phone with that in mind, and most importantly, if the USER sees NO actual difference in the many milliseconds it might detect, then does it matter what happens behind the screen? (answer: if all apps can run and don't lag or stutter, then no, it does not matter.)
(Actual reviews of this phone have been very few; about half basically repeat the spec sheet and the press release in their own words about what the phone is supposed to do, not what it actually does. One even said "The camera takes amazing pictures, of course! Look at the specs!" without examples, which made the whole 'review' pretty pointless.)
Maybe the user Quantify can chime in, since they have been using the phone for a while. The rest, please show us where you heard what you state, or it will be considered theoretical opinion...

watch some video reviews of the Zenfone 2 2.3GHz 4GB RAM, the games play better on the Intel platform than on Snapdragon 801, it's a little bit better than Snapdragon 810 to.
D, 24 Apr 2015but ARM does have more support for Apps in general than X86 on Smartphones right now. exactly my point . intel doesn't have lot of support from devs bcoz of their policies which u can read about on XDA !
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2015Going by user's exp at xda battery life is as poor as zenfone of previous gen. So a big NO.Asus has already announced a fix to it, it's the firmware that will be updated very soon.

There is still an App market on the N9, the Zenfone 2 is Android so the support is vast and even more!

Oneplus is an amazing fone.. Plzz dnt speak if u dnt know how amazing the OpO is.. Specs may appear higher on paper but real world performance differs.. Also the oneplus has made its mark with its amazing screen n awesome camera already.
Gb, 23 Apr 2015You sound like an absolute opo fan boy. There's already a separate forum for zenfone 2 in xda ... morei am not a fanboy but i have used lot of flagships and mid range devices in the past and opo was the best device i used so far thanks to awesome dev support and great communtiy !
as for XDA i am an active member there and i know things better than u do .. check thoroughly .. there is almost close to zero development for intel .and u will know the reasons for that too there !

development for intel soc is almost close to zero and u can search about it oN xda and other forums too !intel soc doesn't work good with all apps .. there r certain apps like chrome which works slowly and face issues ...
Asus phones have the worst screens ever, think twice before you buy them. They easily shatter even when dropped at a height of like 2 feet or u keep in back pocket and sit down. Plenty of people have broken their screen in the initial few months and asus does not replace them under warranty. You will end up spending additional 5.5k for that
