ASUS ZenFone 2

We’ve all been waiting for the ASUS ZenFone 2 to arrive in the United States and now it’s finally here as anticipated. The smartphone was earlier launched in an event in New York where this “incredible” Android device was showcased. An unlocked edition is available for pre-order on Amazon now but AT&T will also be offering the smartphone with no dual-SIM support.

Two models of the ASUS ZenFone 2 were introduced: the 1.8GHz model and the 2.38GHz model. There phone also has a smaller and a larger version. The larger version, the 5.5-inch display phone, is set to rival the iPhone 6 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy Note series. We’re not sure though if the specs and features can beat that of Samsung’s and Apple’s bigger phones.
