Given those pricing, the ZenFone 2 is hands down the best bang per buck device you can get in the country. The 4 GB RAM model can easily beat most 2014 flagship device and can compete very well with the 2015 flagships at a midrange price. Other than that this handset is probably one of the most feature packed smartphone we've seen. The Zen accessories also boast that very attractive prices.

What's missing in that launch is the price of the 128 GB variant of the ZenFone 2 which is now available via PC Corner for PHP 20,990. The good news here is when we asked an ASUS executive if they'll officially release that variant is they said "Secret" that could mean "Yes" as per my interpretation. ASUS also hinted in the ZenFone Zoom might also arrive here soon.

What's important now is the game changing, powerful yet innovative ASUS ZenFone 2 is now readily available in the country with good warranty. Congrats to ASUS Philippines to their successful launch. Cheers!
