    spec for spec, dollar for dollar, i think pinakasulit yung 2nd (ZE550ML) yung approximately P8,400.

    you’ll add approximately P1,400 to get Full HD display of the 3rd option.

    and approx. 4k to get Full HD + additional 2gb ram + better processor of the 4th option.

    Pansin ko lang yung 5″ variant parang zenfone 5 na mataas lang battery. Anyway yung price wala pang tax?? Hmmm i plan to buy new phone mukhang Meizu M1 Note na lang bibilhin ko 7995 2GB Ram at 40K score sa antutu kaso walang SC Card slot pero OTG supported.. Di kasi kaya sa budget yung 1080P 2gb at 4gb variant.. Sayangs..

    • Red says:

      Panoorin nyo po yung review ng Meizu M1 Note ni The Phone Guy, may mga minor issues pala yung meizu like sa pagamit ng custom keyboard at iba pa. Para makapagdecide ka kung gusto mo talaga ng Meizu M1 Note. Hintay pa ko review ng Zenphone 2, gusto ko yung pangalawa. Advantage nito is software, lollipop na sya at may micro sd pa hindi lng full hd yung display compare sa meizu m1 note.

    • Michael says:

      Napanood ko na yun brad. kay the phone guy.. software issues yun pag nag update malulutas din yun.. ang naunang 2 talong talo sa meizu, yung pangatlo naman sd card at lollipop lang ang advantage pero yung pricing is 9.8k wala pang tax bali around 10K sya compare sa meizu na 7990 sa white version.

      Hi Mike,
      Im from cebu city…have u any idea kong saan makabili nang meizu gaya nang sinabi mo dito sa cebu? Hope u can shed this query. Thanks.

    any news kung kelan release date nito sa PH?

  4. i hope the ze551ml(2gb) lands here at below 14k and the ze550ml at below 11k. maglabas na kagad kayo #asus. madaming nag-aantay nyan. :)

    • eng says:

      13-14k for the 2gb Full HD variant is already a bit high IMO. At that price i’d start looking at the older models of Sony and Samsung.

      the 2gb Full HD variant should be priced at around 10.5-11.5K

      the 4gb version should be at around 14-14.5K

      the ze550ml variant should be at around 9-9.5K.

      Low price is the main selling point of ASUS. I can’t see them going way beyond the original prices of Zenfones 5 and 6.

    • cbv says:

      sana below 10k lang ung 2gb variant na full hd

  5. Easy E says:

    Wala pang tax ang conversion na yan.Sana wag masyadong malaki ang increase sa presyo.

  6. Keno says:

    Can’t wait!!!! huhuhu :(

  7. NotaSheep says:

    2gb ram… or 4gb ram… assuming the difference is 2000k… hmmm…. it’s pointless to buy a 64bit processesor with only 2gb of ram… so the 4gb ram is the better choice!

  8. eric says:

    miezu m1 note pa rin ako para sa 8k budget. sana makakuha ako isa mamaya.. :)

  9. jonas says:

    this vs lumia 640? almost the same specs but different price

  10. Paul says:

    When will they launch the phone in the different country like in HK? Can’t wait to have it.

  11. Kris says:

    3rd week of march pa siguro ito or april. Bili muna zenfone 5.. almost same lng cla sa ZE550CL. May LTE lang yan. hehehe.. pero kung d na maka wait. sa z5 na

  12. jaykenneth says:

    MEIZU na lang kasi naman anmahal ng ASUS,,, kung ibebenta nila yan kasabay ng Meizu,, talo ASUS,,,pero kung slight lng difference sa price, oks n oks tong ASUS

  13. Mikee says:

    Overpriced. Ganyan nmn lagi pag bago.. ang tanong maasahan mo kya ang quality.me nabasa kc ako n nag stop ng daw ng production becoz of some performance issues.kya ang result nadelay ng nadelay ang launching s ibat ibang bansa.

  14. Milady says:

    Hi everyone. Ask ko lang po kung sakaling sa manggagaling sa Taiwan ang asus zenfone 2 pwede bang gamitin iyon dito sa Pinas or tamang sabihin pareho lang ba ang magiging version ng zenfone na ilalabas sa Pinas kahit galing sa Taiwan yung fone? Please need expert explanation.

    May mga fones kasi na pag galing sa ibang bang parang iba ang version pero same model & specs. Nag-iiba dahil magkaibang bansa ang pinagreleasan. I hope nakuha nyo ang tanong ko hehe. Thank you!
