Where to buy the ASUS ZenFone 2 in the U.S. and Canada

29
ASUS ZenFone 2

The new ASUS ZenFone 2 goes on sale today in North America. And it's a bit of a monumental phone not just for ASUS — which for the first time is making a major marketing push in this part of the world, but for partner Intel as well. The Z3580 Atom processor in the ZF2 is the first to to use a CPU and modem from Intel. Combine that with up to 4GB of RAM, a good camera, decent design — and above all an affordable off-contract price, and the Zenfone 2 is very much in the conversation when it comes to an alternative to the big-named (and higher-priced) phones.

You'll have a choice to make. But for our money we'd go for the ZE551ML version — that's the $299 model with the full complement of RAM and 64GB of on-board storage. In Canada, the phone costs slightly more, coming in at $379. If you'd rather go for the model with 16GB storage and 2GB RAM, it'll set you back $199 in the U.S. and $249 in Canada.

And finally: Where to buy the ZenFone 2. These are your official options.
