Features of Asus Zenfone 2 Deluxe

Looks and Display

Asus Zenfone 2 Deluxe is beautifully crafted with the natural crystal concept. It not only focuses in the quality but also enhances the look with a beautifully crafted multi-faceted texture with more than 500 polygons that gives the perfect gripping and prevents the phone from falling. The Zen design inputs the perfect balance of beauty and durability that enhances user experience. With 3.9mm thickness the phone looks much slimmer. The volume up/down button is placed at the rear end to keep it thinner and sleeker. The display brings high definition pictures and graphics and makes it sharper and detailed. With 5.5-inch display you can enjoy HD movies and games and experience the complete theatre like experience.

Storage and Performance

Zenfone 2 Deluxe is powered by the latest 2.3GHz 64-bit Intel Atom Quad core Z3580 processor which is perfect for operating multiple apps and playing games with high quality graphics. This is the first ever phone with 4GB RAM with DDR3 RAM which performs even better than the other competitors in the smartphone market and this feature is what that makes the Zenfone 2 Deluxe more powerful. With 4GB RAM capacity you can store and run bundle of apps at a time and the phone will efficiently continue to work even at a loaded stage.

Zenfone 2 Deluxe supports download speed up to 250Mbps featured with LTE Category 4+ which is even powerful.  It is also supported by PowerVR 6430 GPU which delivers a complete desktop experience right on your hands. This makes the phone run smoother and fluidly without having any interruption in services. 4G LTE makes data transfer faster at lightning speed with supported carrier networks.


If we talk about the camera then Zenfone 2 Deluxe contains the same camera features as the Zenfone Laser 2. The rear camera is 13MP with PixelMaster 2.0 which delivers sharp image quality and high resolution photos with zero shutter lag. The night captures are 400% brighter and you can shoot bright images even in low light scenes. The camera provides certain modes like Super HDR mode and Super Resolution mode which delivers detailed images at resolutions up to 52MP. The front camera is of 5MP with Largan lenses and Selfie Panorama which can capture wide angle selfies and groupies at high resolution. Surprisingly the camera quality didn’t stand at what we expected it to be. If you are opting to purchase the Zenfone 2 Deluxe just because of its camera then it’s better to opt for the Zenfone Laser 2 because the camera specifications do not differ with each other at all.


Zenfone 2 Deluxe is powered by the latest Android system, Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and Zen UI which is Asus Zenfone’s own interface. Zen UI includes a range of advanced features and customization options and the phone a better look and feel. With its unique visuals and design you can easily swipe and scroll through the apps and navigate very smoothly. Zen UI contains a number of features like ZenMotion (launches apps in seconds with intuitive gestures), Trend Micro Security, SnapView (keeps professional personal space separate) and Zen UI instant updates which ensures privacy and security and delivers a flawless user experience. The interface has more than 1000 features which enhances the Android operating system and makes it look more stylish and cleaner. Zen UI includes a number of personalization options from where you can drag and drop your preferred widgets, select widget icons from a number of selections, add custom animations to the screen, arrange folders and select from a range of Zen UI themes to customize your phone. You can also PIN lock any app or folders and apply parental control to keep it safe from kids. Its Bluelight filter reduces stress from your eyes so that you can read and view the screen for a longer period.

Overall, I can say that the Asus Zenfone 2 Deluxe is a power packed smartphone with all the advanced specifications and features. Instead of the camera, the phone delivers raw performance and superb functioning with one click. The camera turns out to a bit inferior compared to the price because the same camera features and functionality is being offered by the Asus budget models. But if you consider the phone for tasking then its powerful processor and 4GB RAM assures to deliver you the right performance. And this is what that makes the phone worth its price. With its 4G LTE you can expect high speed internet with seamless browsing over operating a multiple apps.
