Almost after a year of announcement back in CES 2015, ASUS has finally released their new Zenfone Zoom, world’s slimmest smartphone with optical zoom built-in. I have always felt that having optical zoom on a smartphone was the wave of the future and finally got to unbox this bad boy.
For those of you who want a phablet smartphone but don’t want to spend more than $220, you may be in luck as ASUS has introduced the ASUS ZenFone 2 to the market.
There are two versions, a 4GB model with Atom Z3580 at 2.3Ghz and a 2GB model with Atom Z3560 at 1.8Ghz processor. I got the cheaper 2GB version which is essentially same but slower and with 2gigs of RAM.
