Our ZenFone family offers amazing value. For the higher end models, having Dual-SIM capabilities and being carrier-unlocked is a huge plus for people who need two phone numbers. Also, our own special launcher known as ZenUI allows for a variety of ways to customize the look and behavior of your phone so you can personalize your experience to your needs – you can improve your battery life, or use different icon packs – all with just a few taps.

In addition, these devices (minus the ZenFone 2E) will be upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow! What this means is improved security, battery life improvement features like Doze, and improved RAM management. These phones are going to be even better in the new year, and that’s definitely something to be excited about.

Hopefully, this chart has helped you whittle down your choices of which is the best ZenFone 2 for you. If you’ve got more questions, please feel free to hit us up in the comments below. Happy Holidays!


  1. I love ASUS technology and products.
    I just have some little doubts:
    Does this ZenFone 2 Láser have GPS?
    Does it work with a stylus pen (does it and it’s software suport the stylus capability) ?
    Does it have gravity sensors such as compass and gyroscope?
    If so, why don’t you tell all that here.
    We (ASUS users) want to know more.
    Thanks and best regards.

  2. I’m confused. Wasn’t the Zenphone 2 Deluxe Special Edition Supposed to be with a Intel Z3590 CPU and 128GB on-board storage and with 128 GB micro SD card included? Or ASUS decided to skimp the one it sells in USA? I just visited the US Asus webpage and there it says the Deluxe Edition is with Z3580 CPU and no microSD card preloaded, while the Deluxe Special Edition is with Z3590 plus with 128GB microSD preloaded

  3. Khang Thai, I’ve a ZenFone2, with a gold back case. But I reeeealy want to buy the illusion case from the deluxe edition, or carbon fiber from deluxe edition too, but I live in Brazil and here, on the Asus website doesn’t have these back covers… Help me, where I can buy illusion covers? Pleeaaaaaaaase!
