Did you know that the Asus Zenfone 2 was the first smartphone ever to have 4 gigabytes of RAM? It doesn't end there, having been released last year, this phone arrived in the market with intentions to stay relevant instead of being overpowered by new phones coming out in the market. Asus has done this by delivering high specifications with the zenfone 2, which consists of a screen with full HD resolution protected by Gorilla Glass 3, powered by an Intel Atom Quad Core, 2.3 GHz processor packed in with 4 gigabytes of RAM.

For a phone costing Tk. 25,300, it can go up against a lot of the big names in the smartphone market, running android 5.0 by default integrated with Zen UI seamlessly which of course can be updated to newer versions of Android that are available.

The internal storage of the Asus Zenfone 2 is between 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB and can be expanded up till 256 GB by an external memory card. The device sports a 3000mAH battery which is pretty standard for smartphones.ASUS Zenfone has a great camera, with a 13 megapixel Auto Focus primary camera and 5 megapixel front camera that could be compared to the likes of much higher end phones like the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge that you can find out from a quick look at the specs.

The phone comes in 5 different colours and has a great ergonomic design that feels premium to the touch and will fit well in your hand. The physical buttons feel right in place and overall this phone is very pleasing to the eyes. Not only does the phone have a great processing system and well lit screen, it has fast charging that charges 60% of the battery in about 39 minutes, which is great for people who are on the go.

For the pricetag, the Asus Zenfone packs quite a punch, with a powerful intel processor, an enormous amount of RAM, a 64 bit Zen UI OS and a battery good enough to keep up with all this power. This phone was definitely a breakthrough in the smartphone market making the high end features at a price that is affordable to more people in the market.
