It’s a shame because the Asus Zenfone 2 is a spectacular device with great specs and an affordable price point. The top end Zenfone 2 is powered by a quad core 2.3GHz processor, 4GB of RAM and the PowerVRG6430 GPU. The device also has a 3,000mAh battery which is used to power the hardware and the 5.5 inch 1080 x 1920 resolution display.

The camera on the Asus Zenfone 2 shoots images in 13 megapixels and can record video footage in 1080p quality. There is also a 5 megapixel camera on the front of the device for capturing selfies.

Whilst the Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551L currently only runs Android 5.0, the Marshmallow update is coming. Besides the mostly stock experience, Asus has pre-installed their own home launcher which is also available in the Google Play Store.
