Since Asus plans to sell 30 million ZenFone 2 globally by the end of the year, why don’t you add also another variation in view of the Christmas period? That seems to have been done by creating some confusion among users who already have difficulty identifying the variety Zenfone 2 with part numbers. A few hours ago we realized thanks to an alert that theAsus Zenfone 2 (ZE551ML) always identified with 4 GB of RAM and 32/64/128 GB of internal memory with 4 GB and 16 GB Z3580 son Antom or memory with Atom Z3560, also exists in a version with 2 GB of RAM, 1.8 Ghz Intel Atom Z3560 to always already on sale through theAsus shop at the price of 299€.
By comparing the full model codes, we found that … for any buyer (retailer) will be hard pressed to tell the difference between the two Zenfone 2 ZE551ML, if not checking on the box the quantity of RAM.
- ASUS Zenfone ZE551ML-2 6J650WW (model with 4 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, Intel Atom 1.8 GHz Quad-core Z3560)
- ASUS Zenfone ZE551ML-2 6J650WW (model with 2 GB RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, Intel Atom 1.8 GHz Quad-core Z3560)
In practice, Asus has marketed two versions of the model ZE551ML with the same amount of storage memory, differentiating the RAM but leaving the processor and the same identification code 6J650WW. Fortunately some e-commerce emphasize as bold, in the specifications or in red this difference- Wireshop, bass8 -but you should be careful when purchasing.
Situation that becomes even more hectic when you consider that the prices of the model with 4 GB of RAM online are lower than the just spotted pattern with 2 GB RAM and of course same product code. In short … a hodgepodge.
ASUS ZenFone ZE551ML 2 is available online from Carpentry to 215 euros or by Trony to 299 euros. The value for money is good but there are 6 better models.
