Beauty of Zen in the ZenFone 2 ZE551ML
The ZenFone 2’s design takes a big move away from the previous direction of ZenFone smartphones. Where the previous ones had very functional and industrial-styled designs, the ZenFone 2 opts for elegance with the simple use of plastic covers.
The entire rear of the ASUS ZenFone 2 is made of a gentle curve that takes shape in the form of a horizontally brushed plastic material that looks very much like brushed metal. The edges of the ZenFone 2 is only 3.9mm thin, and yet it remains very much easy to hold in the palm of the hand. To accommodate such elegant thinness on the side of the smartphone results in ASUS placing the volume buttons on the rear of the smartphone where a finger will naturally rest. The volume button is then adorned with ASUS’s very own iconic Zen circle design; the design cue can also be found on the lower chin on the front.
To make the ZenFone 2 truly yours, ASUS has given a wide variety of color choices for the rear of the smartphone. The ZenFone 2 comes in Osmium Black, Sheer Gold, Glacier Gray, Glamour Red, and Ceramic White. If you want to make it even more unique, ASUS also has selection of rear covers with brilliant blends of colours to make it truly personal.
Intel Inside with Intel Atom processors
Where many other smartphones and mobile devices opt for Qualcomm chipsets, the ASUS ZenFone 2 line of smartphones uses Intel’s very own quad-core Atom processors for unprecedented performance in a smartphone. Pairing 4GB RAM with the powerful Atom processors allow the ZenFone 2 to perform admirably in the face of its competitors.
Forget slowdowns as your various Android apps open quickly when you need them. The 4GB of RAM also allows you to keep many applications running in the background so that you may quickly switch back to them whenever you need to without restarting it.
