When the Asus Zenphone 2 was announced, one question that everyone carrying the phone was asked, was which version of the device are they using. And unless you were very lucky there is a fat possibility that the answers of two individuals will never match. The reason for that is the sheer number of different configurations that Asus has come out with for the Zenphone 2. Right from the RAM to ROM, you have several options including color choices which makes the Asus Zenphone 2 a fit for plenty of pockets.
Catering from the price point of Rs 12,999 to Rs 29,999, the Asus Zenphone 2 offers users multiple slabs within the mid-budget segment. Not only do you get a very decent value for money, you get specifically the sort of configuration that you are looking at without being forced to pay extra for something you may not need.
For example, you may be a regular IT worker who only uses his phone for E-Mail and Whatsapp, you may not require 4 GB of RAM, while on the other hand a regular gamer would want as much juice behind his device as possible for a smooth experience. This is where the Asus Zenphone 2 comes really handy as it serves the purpose of a very large Target Group. It is worth pointing out that Asus had begun this trend of catering to different section of the audience with different sets of configurations with the original Zenphone, but has definitely taken the game to a whole new level with the Zenphone 2.
If we are to draw up a comparison chart with a competing device, say the likes of Xiaomi Mi4 or even the OnePlus One, the similarly spec’d ZenPhone 2 would cost Rs 14,999 which pretty much is in line with the competitors, but with a more industrial and innovative design. The back-lead controls are something that require getting some used to, but having used the LG G2 we can vouch for the fact that one does get used to it and actually makes for a very smooth user experience. The device offers pretty much top of the game hardware when it comes to the likes of the screen or camera or the speakers so that set of concern you would never have. The only reservation that one could have is largely the plastic body, but when you look at the price segment, it is only around the Rs 40,000+ mark where you have the likes of the HTC M9+ or the Galaxy S6 or even the iPhones which is the segment that the ZenPhone 2 does not touch.
So, simply for the choice it offers, the Zenphone 2 a good pick? No, it is a good pick because of the quality that the product packs, along with the choices and value for money, making it a complete package.
