Asus Zenfone 2 enjoyed a long run as the best Android phone to go for until Motorola launched Moto G 3rd generation that mighty impressed the crowd unequivocally.
Both critics and buyers love the phone! If you are in the market to buy a new smartphone, this handy guide will help you a lot. Besides, spending hundreds of dollars for a flagship smartphone is so old school. People get everything they need at just $250 or lesser with phones like these that have been storming the market.
Textured Back Panel
A panel is not supposed to be the deciding factor of a phone but we can’t argue against it because Moto G 2015 edition features the best of the lot. The textured rubber feel is exceptionally good in your hands. It doesn’t slip, sweat or hurt your hands which is also made possible by the compact screen size.
Waterproof – IPX 7 Rating
Some people have a doubt when it comes to this IPX 7 rating because it is not water proof if the back panel comes off. Don’t worry about that! It is really tough to remove it and it will never open on its own even when accidentally crashing to the floor. The rating allows the phone to be totally immersed in water for a couple of seconds yet come out with intact internals.
Pure Android Experience
An area where Asus Zenfone 2 loses badly to the third generation Motorola phone. The Android remains as pure as it could get except for additional, useful software. It is almost the same as the one offered by Nexus phones. Zenfone on the other hand uses a modified version which has different icons and looks outdated already!
Most Android phones are filled with bloatware by its manufacturers. Zenfone 2 is no different which allows its competitors to enjoy an upper hand. The interface is clean, there are no unwanted apps on it which allows the phone to work and respond faster.
The 13 megapixel camera is a killer feature on the Moto G 3rd Gen. It is capable of taking crisp pictures and HD videos that are actually worthy of sharing with your friends. The front 5 megapixel is equally good. With dual LED flash, night shots are simply amazing that once again proves that Asus Zenfone 2 is a loser.
Despite all these facts, if you want a bigger screen and a faster processor the Zenfone 2 is the phone to go for. For everyone else, the Moto G 2015 edition is an amazing daily phone designed to meet your daily requirements with amazing ease.
