    Although this has to be one of the oddest designs for a smartphone to come out in years, we can see how it might appeal to some folks even as it makes others vomit. Beyond the polarizing design aesthetics, the ZenFone 2 Deluxe Edition from Asus hosts a large array of high-end features for a smartphone. Here's a quick rundown:
    • 5.5-inch IPS (1920x1080) Display - 403ppi and Gorilla Glass 3
    • Intel Atom quad core Z3580 processor running at 2.3GHz with Power VR G6430 GPU
    • 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM
    • 13MP f/2.0 unit with dual LED flash and the front camera is a 5MP with a wide-angle lens.
    • 128GB Storage with support for a 64GB microSD card
    • 3,000 mAh (NON removable) internal battery
    • GSM/EDGE: 850, 900,1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz; WCDMA: Band 1/2/4/5/8; and FDD-LTE: 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/17/20
    • Android 5.0 with Red & Black themed ZenUI overlay
    • Both the carbon fiber and the faceted metallic silver back covers are included
    If you just can't get over that bizarre, alien-looking metallic case, the back cover is removable and can be replaced with a carbon fiber back cover. Both cases are actually included with your purchase of the device which will retail for $399.99. Be sure to check out more pics of the Asus ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition in the thread below.

    Not sure how I feel about that silver one. I kinda like it, I kinda don't. :confused:

    Specs are decent... That black and red UI looks dated though.

    It looks a little "stealth-ish" like the f35 or f22 raptor..the way some of the panels lay down..so I guess I kinda like it..too bad it won't work on vzw..grrrrr

    That silver back reminds me of the Windows Mobile HTC Touch Diamond, circa 2008'ish.

    One thing about Asus, they know their market. I don't have an issue with the design. The specs are better than decent and the price is awesome. I do know that you can't get them here as they sold out the first day according to my local Asus shop manager.
