Lazada made Asus Zenfone 2 available several weeks before the official launch here in the Philippines. Having the ZE550CL and ZE551ML variants that top up to 64GB storage.
Here's the price list from Lazada:
- ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE550M 16GB Red – P10,299
- Asus ZenFone 2 ZE550ML 16GB Black – P10,403
- ASUS Zenfone 2 32GB 4GB RAM ZE551ML LTE Gold – P13,699
- ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE551ML 32GB 4GB RAM Black – P14,279
- ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE551ML LTE 64GB 4GB RAM Black - P17,999
In some local stores, prices are:
- ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE500CL 1.8GHz Z2560/2GB RAM/16GB ROM – P7,995
- ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE551ML 1.8GHz Z3560/2GB RAM/16GB ROM – P9,995
- ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE551ML 2.3GHz Z3580/4GB RAM/32GB ROM – P13,995
- ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE551ML 2.3GHz Z3580/4GB RAM/64GB ROM – P14,995
Base on the price list above, it seems that local stores are selling them cheaper compared to Lazada. The only keypoint is that Lazada was able to sell them out earlier than local stores. So those who didn't wait for the official launch paid an extra bucks just to have the much awaited phones in their hands.
We are hoping that Zenfone 2 will beat its predecessor, the Zenfone 5, in which it was known to have a short battery life span and overheats most of the time. Should they fix it, it may seem that Intel Atom processors will be able to get in par with Qualcomm and Mediatek processors.
