Hands-on with the ASUS Zenfone 2

ASUS Zenfone 2

The Zenfone is back for a second run, bigger and better than ever

At its CES 2015 press conference, ASUS pulled the wraps off its latest Android powered smartphone, the Zenfone 2. The first Zenfone devices were announced in the very same building 12 months ago, and with the new one ASUS has come on a little with its main line of smartphones.

Design changes, beefier hardware, and some new software tricks all add up to a decent upgrade.

One of the most recognizable design changes is that the volume buttons have been moved to the rear. We liked it when LG did it and we like it again now ASUS is doing it. But, there's a catch. The power button hasn't been moved to the rear, instead being moved to the top. So it's maybe half as good as the implementation on something like the LG G3.
