T, 26 Jan 2016256GB?Not enough need at least 1TB.its very efficient specially in high end games
Asus is the worst mobile manufacturer and they made a "good" pair with the extremely laggy and non compatible for apps intel 's CPUs.I not recommend to anyone to buy an Asus smartphone or tablet,battery life is very weak,only maximum 50 % of play store apps are compatible,and there I don't think are custom ROMs and kernels,or even root is impossible.Also the system is full of bloatware and you will use maximum 10 % of that prinstalled apps,even with 4Gb of RAM , the memory is always full,and the CPU gets heat very fast only scrolling on menu.Please dont buy Asus or something with Intel ( only for mobiles )
Mark_S, 26 Jan 2016Asus yes makes nice phones. That is what people want.
Great specs too.
Beware of the exorbi... moreIt has had constant updates, mine has had 2 updates in 1 week during Christmas Eve and New Year, it also had 2 last week with 1 update the very next day.
There is no bloatware anymore, the phone is so fast and zippy.
the Bloatware on ZenUI is a myth now

Anonymous, 26 Jan 2016Instead of releasing millions of devices with similar names ! do release update for your previ... moreactually you are wrong on the custom rom development. if you go to XDA, you will see the zenfone 2 having a multitude of custom roms and other developments.
If only it didn't have those ridiculously large screen bezels. At 5.5" it's almost as big as the 6" Nexus 6. You're better off getting the 64GB Nexus 6 the next time Amazon has it for $299.

Beware of the exorbitant amount of bloatware that comes with all their phones.
Abysmal customer service. Worst I have ever encountered.
RAY, 26 Jan 2016 silver polygon looks amazgingI have seen the deluxe version review. It is just plastic. Uncomfartable to hold for a long time but very grippy. No doubt on that one. You wouldn't see the day it slip out of your hand.
This is dubbed as "ROG" or "Republic of Gamers" edition. Which is roughly costs around $450
Asus Zenfone 3 is coming this March. there are total of 5 different models (5 different specs), the highest spec would be having 5.7" FHD screen, 20MP rear / 8MP front camera using Fujinon lenses, running on Intel new 14nm SOC paired with 6GB RAM, 4000mAh battery, harman kardon stereo speakers and all would come with Android Marshmallow preloaded. the lower specs have 5.7" HD and 6.0" HD screens with less RAM and less powerful processors.
It costs about US$433 in Indonesia. Very pricy imo for an upgraded chipset and storage.
