isn't it 16 + micro SD

second the comment in worst company... awful support of products

Kitkat is actually a good choice - Lollipop is horrible, even on top-range models.
Only problem is the brand - Archos is well known for years - they deliver brilliant products with absolutely horrible support. Should have big yellow sticker "SOLD AS SEEN" - don't expect any updates at all.

Just want to check if zenfone 2 is supported on Vodafone 4G LTE network

I got lollipop moto g and its better then kitkat

zenfone 2 will be in UK very soon and top spec then this

I bet pixel screen be less then 400 and no mention of ram

2gb ram it says but as people say support bad so if you got problems good luck

Top price too.

I wouldn't touch an Archos product again, after bad experiences in the past, especially not at this price.

rev6

Top price too.



Which Zenfone 2 will that be though? There are going to be a fair few variations, and not all have better specs.

The 720p 5" version went on sale in the US this week for $220, pretty much the same price and specs as a Moto G 2nd Gen. The top end 1080p version is likely to be at least $100 higher. I would expect the top end versions to be £250 or above when they are released in the UK.

Zenfone 2 Variations (as known at the moment):

ZE500CL (lowest)
Single SIM
720p 5" Screen
Dual Core ATOM Z2560 @ 1.6Ghz
8MP Camera, 2MP Front Facing
2GB RAM
16GB Storage

ZE550ML (Middle)
Dual SIM
720p 5.5" Screen
Quad Core ATOM Z3560 @ 1.8Ghz
13MP Camera 5MP Front Facing
2GB RAM
16GB Storage

ZE551ML (High)
Dual SIM
1080p 5.5" Screen
Quad Core ATOM Z3580 @ 2.3Ghz
13MP Camera / 5MP Front Facing

There are 3 sub variations of the ZE551ML with differing storage and RAM amounts:

16GB - 2GB RAM
32GB - 2GB RAM
64GB - 4GB RAM

It looks like the Zenfone 2 is going to be a series of models over different price points, rather than one phone with one set of specs.

Looks like a cluster fu.ck. Why don't they have the better model with a smaller screen...

The Zenfone 2 launch is happening today in France... the models are already up on the Asus eshop at the following prices:
ZE500CL: €199
ZE550ML (2GB), 16GB): €249
ZE551ML (4GB, 32GB): €299 (this seems to be a starting promo price as €349 is shown as being crossed out)

Hope the prices are as competitive when they eventually come over here!!

Agree, 5" is the max I am comfortable with holding, but even the 5" version is quite large. It's over a centimetre taller than my Lumia 830, and I struggle to hold that comfortably.

Yeah shame that. Pretty annoyed that Asus aren't releasing any info regarding the UK at all tbh. There are a lot of people in the UK waiting on this phone and it would be nice to get a bit more info for us in the UK other than "We don't have any info just yet." (their constant copy and paste reply on Twitter.) Especially considering the Zenfone 2 was first announced back at the beginning of January... Asus seem to be treating France and Italy like the whole of "Europe". Do they not realize that giving an official release for 2 countries doesn't cover a whole continent?! Lots of people in UK waiting for this phone and if it really takes another 3/4 whole months to make its way over, I'm sure many will have turned to other alternatives by then

Is the current 'zenfone 5' worth getting, approx £130 on ebay.
Was thinking its either that or moto G2 for my mum, or any others to consider

Review at Trusted Reviews

The Zenfone 5 and base model Zenfone 2 (ZE500CL) are basically the same phone. The main differences being the OS version, lack of LTE on the 5 (unless you are after the Zenfone 5 LTE), and a smaller battery on the 5 (see here for full comparison).

Top price too.




11 mm thick that's fat by modern standards

I'm looking for a new smartphone, was thinking of getting the Z3, but came across this, the specs look damn good for the money. Everyone seems to just slate the company rather than commenting on the phone itself and how it compares with others. From the reviews I've read, this seems to be a top contender for this price point.
IPS screen, 8 cores, dual sim. ok it's on kit-kat - not really a deal breaker.
