    The Zenfone series has very impressive and value specs, however, the latest Zenfone 3 models sports an either/or microsd/SIM2 option which made me look somewhere else. I use the microsd to store my personal files which come in handy when your unit needs to be brought in for service. You just pop it out and place it in your backup fone, and your ready to go.

    Asus should think of removing this restriction in their future releases.
