Asus had a successful run in the Indian market with its first wave of Zenfone series smartphones. The Zenfone 5 in particular received glowing reviews, and sold lakhs of units in flash sales. This time around, the Taiwanese brand is back with its Zenfone 2. The new phone comes in three variants, and the one with 4 GB RAM costs more than double the Zenfone 5. If you are looking to upgrade from the Zenfone 5, here are the key differences you will notice between the two.
The Zenfone 5, sports a 5-inch screen with HD resolution. On the other hand, the Zenfone 2 features a bigger 5.5" Full HD screen.
For the Zenfone 2, Asus has moved the lock button on the top side. Considering the phone's size, it's a dumb thing to do.
The Zenfone 2 packs-in a 3000 mAh battery, while the Zenfone 5 settles for 2110 mAh. The battery upgrade was essential to power the Full HD screen and new hardware.
Much like the LG G3, the Zenfone 2 has rear volume rocker. The Zenfone 5 has a conventional button setup.
Instead of retaining the matte finish of the Zenfone 5, Asus has gone glossy for the latest Zenfone.
