Zenfone 2 : Things you should know!

With the launch of Asus’s newest smartphone, Zenfone 2 at it’s homeland, more and more user are eagerly trying to get their hands on one. It’s being teased that this month it will launch in more countries in Asia, like Malaysia and India. But, before you get hasty to get one, there’s something you must know, and i think it’s important.

Unlike last year wave of Zenfones, this year Asus only use one name. Zenfone 2. The thing is that, it has 3 variant based on it’s specification. So bear in mind that you must choose carefully when purchasing Zenfone 2.

The three Asus Zenfone 2 variants are Zenfone 2 ZE551ML, ZE550ML and ZE500CL. This model scheming reminds me of a notebook style which has a same model number but differ in specification.
While most of it’s spec are the same, here i point out the important differences.

Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML:

5.5in IPS display; Gorilla Glass 3, 1080×1920
2.3GHz quad-core Intel Atom processor with 4GB RAM OR 1.8GHZ quad-core Intel Atom processor with 2GB RAM
3,000 mAh Lithium-Polymer battery
32GB/64GB internal storage
13MP rear camera

Asus Zenfone 2 ZE550ML:

5.5in IPS display, Gorilla Glass 3, 720×1280
1.8GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3560 processor with 2GB RAM
13MP rear camera
16GB internal storage
3,000 mAh Lithium-Polymer battery.

Asus Zenfone 2 ZE500CL:

5in IPS display; Gorilla Glass 3, 720×1280
1.6GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 processor with 2GB RAM
8MP rear camera
16GB internal storage
2,500 mAh Lithium-Polymer battery.

As you see above, there actually 4 variants because the ZE551ML has both 2GB and 4GB of RAM. Confusing? well, you’re not alone. When i first found out about this, i said WTH is ASUS thinking. They better come out with a different naming scheme to make it easier. 🙁
