Since the launch of the ZenFone 2, many have been asking for the beautiful Illusion series back covers. For those who want that beautiful 3D, purple/teal/blue back cover that they may have seen at the ZenFone 2 launch in NYC, the ZenFone 2 Deluxe is available for purchase as it’s an exclusive to that device.

Now I know that many of you wish that gorgeous back cover was sold separately to customize your phone, but unfortunately there’s no word from our team if that’ll happen. Don’t be bummed though!

Since MyZen by ASUS (the artist formerly known as ZenHub) started, the community has been so patient and awesome to chat with, and because of that, I wanted to give a little something back to YOU guys.

Sitting at my desk are FIVE (Roman Numeral V…count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) of these LIMITED EDITION 3D back covers and I’m giving them away! NOTE: These covers are engineering samples and DO NOT include the NFC antenna so NFC will NOT work! Sorry if that’s a deal-breaker. The contest begins today (9/29) at 5PM PT and is open to residents (age 18 years or older) of the United States and Canada only. Five (5) randomly chosen winners will each win one (1) exclusive back cover and will be notified on Friday 10/2 at 5PM PT. All you have to do is enter below and you can get multiple entries by completing the tasks! 


ZenFone 2 Deluxe Back Cover Giveaway!


  1. Currently after owning a Lg Volt for an year, I decided to save up enough money to buy the Zenfone 2! Loving it completely I would love to customize it further by obtaining one of these beautiful illusion covers. It’ll mean the world to me if I am able to receive one! Thanks!!!

    • If it's lasted more than a week with continuous symptoms it sounds more like flu. Flu can take up to 2 weeks to clear properly, whereas a cold should have cleared up between 5-7 days. I am currently in the same predicament.Try not to see a doctor for antibiotics, it's important that your immune system becomes stronger so you don't feel this way again. Just keep resting and persevere! You won't feel this way forever!

  2. I need this back cover because not only does it look amazing, but since I recently dropped my Zenfone 2 there’s now scuff marks on the corners, so a new back cover that not only looks amazing but is new would solve that. Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. After owning a Lg Volt for an year, I decided to save up to buy the Zenfone 2. I am currently in love with the phone and hope to customize it further. It would mean alot to me if i’m able to obtain one! Thanks!!!

  4. This case would go great with my diamond studded pants..

    Just kidding.

    My backplate is broken on the top (headphone jack) and it’d be great to get a functional and visual upgrade.

    Thanks for doing this giveaway!

    • dit :Le jour où ma grand mère fera des profiteroles, ce sera bien. Y’en a une qui fait que des soupes pas bonnes dans lesquelles les légumes nagent dans une eau un peu grasse (?) et l’autre elle touche pas à la cuisine, parce qu’elle a une cuisinière qui fait très bien ça pour elle.En même temps, j’aime pas trop ça, les profiteroles.(Bref)

  5. I really want this back cover. i have been searching for a replacement to this plastic one my phone came with for ages! this will make the phone look a lot better! thank you for the opportunity

      • I have got 1 reoemmcndation for your web site. It looks like right now there are a couple of cascading stylesheet problems when launching a selection of webpages inside google chrome and internet explorer. It is operating okay in internet explorer. Probably you can double check this.

    • What I want you to know is that I have none. I am not a humanist or universalist, agnostic or Buddhist. My god is my source of all. I wake up because of the creator and I see this next second because of it. I don’t spend time thinking about it because it is like oxygen to me – it just is whether I believe or not. I walk in wonder of every miracle around me to my kids born from modern day science to the fact that I got to spend an afternoon with you, Lee. So, my religion has no dogma or creeds written on the tablet save the one in my soul.

    • I just found your blog and I am now hooked. You’re ideas are wonderful and I am so greatful that you are sharing them and the how to’s. It’s 11pm and I am so about to pull out my brayer.

    • Pov’ bête ! Se noyer dans son verre de vin ! Et personne pour la repêcher ?! Bah, y’fout quoi l’ami Pat’ ?! Ah ça, pour nous parler de la dernière grande marée qu’il a faite à pince, il est le prem’s, mais pour indiquer comment sauver une pintade de la noyade assurée, y’a plus personne !…Qui a dit que j’étais hors sujet ?;)

    • karolina sk:rverihahah assÃ¥ glojärn är sÃ¥ jävla Epic. flinar i min dystra ensamhet i takt med att jag förtär en sketen torsk till nattakäk

  6. This is the coolest back cover I have ever seen! I have never used a phone cover before but this I would love to use. Thanks for the contest!

  7. that suck, I am from Mexico and I think I have the only Zenfone 2 in Queretaro , Mexico. I love my Zenfone 2 and I will buy the Zenwatch 2

    • Jenn is awesome Tomorrow is the big day for you!! Good luck! I’m terrified of getting mine cut, have only had a handful of salon cuts in my entire life! Home cuts have always been what I’ve had – or I’ve just let it grow, though in adult life that hasn’t happened all that well. It actually nearly all fell out at one point or I’ve chopped it all off in a fit of temporary insanity (followed by reeHrts!).gugs and enjoy your new ‘do tomorrow, I’m sure it will be fine xx

    • ravenm I think you’ll find that was a short-lasting glitch with the image host, webshots (the first image and the last two are on flickr). If it’s not ok now then I wonder if you have the webshots address blocked perhaps?

    • I finished the lace bookmark and am happy with the result – despite the fact that I used a 10/2 bamboo which got quite fuzzy and was really too soft for a truly usable bookmark. I have a picture but don’t use social media so can’t post it.I’m enjoying the small projects while learning lace techniques.

  8. I would love to have this back cover, because it would help me show off such a great inexpensive phone to all my friends that seem to only care about the newest overpriced iPhone that still looks the same as in 2010.

    Great job at innovating Asus! You guys rock.

  9. Having a ZenFone 2 Deluxe cover on my regular ZenFone 2 would be awesome! The color and the design of the back cover is really attractive and will be eye catching.

    • Yeah I wanted to write this series largely because message queues are so well suited to all sorts of important tasks that are inslaecingry relevant in modern web apps. Hope people new to using message queues will find it as a helpful starting off point.

  10. I bought the ZP2 after seeing these covers in your launch vids.

    Between the letdown of not being able to buy these covers, a dim screen, and all your bloatware, I regret my purchase.

    Please at least sell these covers you have been showing since ZP2 launch.

    • Hi Jason, thanks for your comment. I can definitely understand why you might feel frustrated about it. I have been in touch with our team and they know the demand is high for these back covers. I’ll talk to them and see if there’s anything we can do. In the meantime, please enjoy your device. The screen is quite bright when compared to other devices, and bloatware can be uninstalled and disabled with the latest firmware update.

      • To follow up; The screen is embarrassing. At full brightness, if I hand it to anyone else(especially outside in the sunlight), they ask why it is so dim. I have never had a phone with such a dim screen. I have been able to uninstall some of the bloatware, and disable some, but much remains. I just want the current version of Android, not a old version that has bloatware where some of it can be disables/deleted.

        As far as the comment elsewhere that says the illusion cover is exclusive to the deluxe Zenfone 2; I ran back through the ASUS press release CES 2015. ASUS released a phone with illusion back cover options, yet had no mention that there was a different phone model required to get them. Bad business model there. The thing about deceiving people and providing poor software is that once we make the decision, we are stuck with the phone for a couple years to justify the purchase of a new one.

        As a owner of around 4 current ASUS products, this phone has damaged the brand name for me.

  11. I love this design, and it would make my phone look so stylish and beautiful. Personally I’d prefer this over the stock back plate.
