ASUS has unveiled a new variant of its rather excellent ZenFone 2. The new handset comes with an even more appealing price tag of $229, more than $100 more affordable that the 1080p display, 4GB of RAM/64GB storage version that made its debut earlier in the year.Ok, you are probably thinking, "Doesn't ASUS already have a $199 version of the ZenFone 2 with 2GB of RAM?" You are of course correct, but this new variant gives customers a more affordable 4GB of RAM version to purchase... confused yet? Basically ASUS is replacing the 2GB model with a 4GB model that lacks the Full HD screen (still 720p though) and also comes with 16GB of storage instead of 64GB. The price for all this will be $229, which makes this a very interesting choice against the Moto G 2015, which gets a 720p screen and 16GB of storage too, but only 4GB of RAM. Benchmarks have showing that even the now old ASUS ZenFone 2 with 2GB of RAM bested the new Moto G, so we are pretty excited about what could be a powerful budget device here. As for the 64GB packing ZenFone 2 with the 1080p panel; that will stay at $299, which itself is hardly a bad deal.
