    Now if only they made the ZenPhone 2 into a 7" tablet... I'll be tempted to buy it as a one even at this size (though I'm worried it would be a tad too small).

    These don't look too bad. Even if the ZenFone2 starts at £200, that's a good price...

    I really do like the curved backs many manufacturers are choosing to go with. They just fit so much nicer in my hand an allow me to reach more of the screen with my thumbs.

    These Asus phones are damn good and very underrated, better than the Motorola equivalent IMO...shame that they seem to be under most peoples radar when looking for a £150'ish phone.

    Re: ASUS launches ZenFone Zoom and ZenFone 2 smartphones

    I must admit that these are interesting me a lot, I wonder if the battery is replacable because it ticks all the other boxes where speed, memory and storage are concerned, my only bugbear is the Intel CPU as I would rather have an ARM but as ASUS seem to be in bed with Intel for mobile devices there's not much chance of that.

    But...do I wait and see or do I go for a very good deal on a Sony Xperia Z2...decisions, decisions, decisions!
    Of course I'm perfect you just need to lower your expectations.

    if the battery life is 1 day+, I will consider getting one. Looks good, OIS is pretty cool.
