ASUS Zenfone 2 Hands-On: Less Than Meets The Eye

ASUS’ Zenfone 2 is a smartphone Trojan horse. On the outside, it looks amazing. A huge 5.5-inch Full HD display, 64GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, and a 2.3 GHz Intel quad-core processor — all for just $US300. That’s stupid cheap. But once you power up the phone, you might feel differently.

A simple, beautiful, seamless design. An incredibly thin chassis, crafted from metal and finished in a high quality dark grey paint. A fanless, low-power Intel Core M processor and oodles of battery life hidden away underneath a big trackpad and great keyboard. Sounds like Apple’s new MacBook, right? Nope.

Asus ZenWatch: Australian Hands-On

At IFA 2014 in Berlin, Asus joined Motorola, Samsung and LG in launching an Android Wear smartwatch.

So you want a laptop that turns into a tablet. No kidding! Plenty of people are jazzed by the idea of having a slate for sharing, plus a solid keyboard for typing.
