It’s been couple of weeks since Asus released their Flagship, Asus Zenfone 2. Zenfone 2 is the first phone featuring 4GB RAM, which is higher than my netbook on which I am currently writing this article. From last few days there have been a lot of Confusion between the models of Zenfone 2; So before starting the Unboxing of the beast, let me first clear your confusion. There are in total of four Variants of the Zenfone 2. Ash at C4ETech Explains it is with this Image.
That would have solved your Confusion. So we will be today unboxing and having a quick look at ZE551ML whose processor is clocked at 2.3GHz.
Initially the Zenfone 2 seems to be good. It is BIG as well as BULKY but it will not take more than two days to adjust with the size. Talking about the Box contents, We get a charger, a data cable, a warranty card, a user manual and the phone itself. Asus used to provide Earphones but sadly not this time.
Zenfone 2 has a plastic back cover which has a metallic brushed aluminium texture and I am pretty sure it won’t break that easily. On the top of the phone we have an audio jack, power button and a noise cancellation microphone. On the back is the Dual tone flash, A 13MP camera and the volume rockers. The position of the volume buttons seems to be a little weird, I will let you know who it goes in the Review. Below that is Zenfone’s branding and speaker grill. On the bottom you have got a micro-USB and the primary microphone. On the Front Side, Zenfone 2 has a earpiece, sensors and the front 5MP camera; Below that is the 5.5″ full HD display. Just under the screen we have 3 touch sensitive buttons, The placement of the buttons are really not that great, I feel they are a bit to near to the screen and sometimes while pressing the back button touches on-screen. The body of Zenfone 2 is bent from back making it feel thin on the edges but wider in the center. The curve also makes the phone wobble a bit when placed on a flat surface but that won’t be a big issue, rather it adds more beauty to the phone. Zenfone 2 is running Lollipop 5.0 out of the box with Zen UI. First Impression of ZenUI is really nice. i am not a big fan of customize android because of the sluggishness in it but ZenUI feels really optimised. The 4GB RAM is cherry on the top. All the system apps are optimised and there is no lag while opening the apps.
There are a lot of features present in this device which we can’t really see in other phones like 1 handed mode.
We can also resize the window to our liking. Zenfone 2 and the ZenUI feels great till now, we would be doing a review of the same so add Tehnokick t your bookmarks :).
Do let us know what you feel about this beast in the comment section below. (Zenfone 2 Unboxing)
