ZenFone 2 Laser
Shares

Now that the ZenFone 2 Laser is available, let’s give you the rundown on why (if you haven’t bought a ZenFone 2 already – shame on you! Just kidding.) you should consider this device as your next smartphone.

3GB of RAM – Do more without slowing down

ZenFone-2-Laser---3GB RAM

The base model of the ZenFone 2 features 2GB of RAM. Now that doesn’t mean it can’t handle regular tasks, but having some extra memory never hurt anyone! With more memory in the ZenFone 2 Laser, you’ll be able to have more browser tabs and applications open for quicker multitasking when you’re on the go.

Corning Gorilla Glass 4 – Not bulletproof…yet

At the speed of life, accidents happen, and your precious connection to others can take a tumble. The ZenFone 2 Laser features Corning’s latest technology that is over twice as strong as Gorilla Glass 3 and their tests with Gorilla Glass 4 show that it’s more durable in both abrasion tests and from higher drops onto sharp surfaces similar to asphalt. So rest assured that even if the worst were to happen, your device has a better chance of surviving.

Removable battery – Don’t get tied down to an outlet

ZenFone-2-Laser---Removable-Battery

One of the biggest gripes smartphone owners have is battery life. With the new ZenFone 2 Laser, we’ve got a removable battery that you can replace with backups when you’re out of juice. When separate batteries become available for purchase, pick some up if you’re planning a trip and need the extra power handy.

MOAR DATA! It supports LTE data in BOTH SIM slots

ZenFone-2-Laser---Dual-SIM-Dual-LTE02
The ZenFone 2 Laser’s dual SIM slots support LTE

In previous models, data was only available in SIM 1, now the ZenFone 2 Laser allows you to access 4G LTE data in both SIMs. This could be really useful when you’re out of data on a personal plan, and can switch to using LTE on a separate plan, like your work account. Bear in mind, LTE won’t run concurrently. While both SIMs are active, 3G data will go through SIM2.

Laser-fast Auto-Focus…See what I did there?

The ZenFone 2 Laser’s auto-focus is super fast

Last, but not least, the phone gets its moniker from the new laser auto-focus feature. The camera, with dual-tone flash, can focus up to 3x faster onto a short-range subject nearly instantly so you won’t miss that special moment. For macro shots, this is going to be awesome!

  1. Would’ve felt bad had this contained 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal. Although I wish my ZenFone 2 had the dual SIM capable of data, but for my use case 4 GB RAM and the double internal storage is more essential. So as far as I’m concerned Asus hasn’t necessarily outdone its awesome flagship of earlier this year, quite yet.

    • Yeah the ZenFone 2 Laser is definitely not as powerful, but for the casual user it sits in a really nice spot with all its features.

      • My only issue is why the he’ll they didn’t put removable batteries in the original ZenFone 2 line? I got the 300 dollar gsm unlocked model from Amazon twice now because the first one broke between being sat on in my back pocket and dropped nearly 12 times after the fact but the battery removal issue has always kinda bugged me about the original, what happens if my battery won’t hold a charge as I’m driving to job sites? I would have to take it to someone and pay them to do it and they are as likely to break the phone as I am if I tried to do it myself.

        • I agree with the issue of the non-removable battery. This was a significant compromise for me when I bought this. I told myself previously I’d never buy a phone without a removable battery. However, between the outstanding price and the necessity for 4GB of RAM I caved into the non-removable battery.

  2. I see that it is LTE dual sim dual active however in your specs you state the following:
    Dual micro-SIM
    – Primary SIM – 2G/3G/4G
    – Secondary SIM – 2G/3G

    According to your specs only 1 sim is LTE and the other is reduced to 2/3G.

    Other dual LTE phones say you can only use LTE for data on 1 sim but you can use LTE for voice/text on either. Is this not the case? Is this being software blocked?

    Is quick charge available for this model? NFC? Since this is a new model is is scheduled for the M update?

    Would like some clarification on this

    • Hey there – great question! The specs do say 2G/3G for the 2nd SIM because when both SIMs are being used, and the 1st SIM is used for LTE, hardware limitations set the 2nd SIM to only 3G – meaning LTE can’t run concurrently. However, in the software, you can set which SIM you want to run LTE. Quick charge isn’t supported for this device, and there isn’t NFC available. There hasn’t been official word from HQ regarding M yet. But I can assure you the team is working very hard to please everyone and understands the eagerness for the latest OS. Right now, they are concerned with giving people the best experience possible on Lollipop.

    • Dude i have checked using LTE 4G sim in both slots and it has worked with full speed internet !!! So may be your phone is broke !!!

  3. The new ASUS 2 lazer I’d an excellent phone. It isn’t as powerful as the Flagship bit it was not meant to. The Specs are awesome and so is the price. Hopefully the 615 processor will have no lag. Then, the Laser will do what you want it to. Kinda reminds me of the NEXUS 5 but it is more advanced. What

  4. I am currently in Canada, and I am thinking of purchasing this phone, I have two SIM, both carriers don’t support 2G network, so If I get this phone and use LTE on one SIM, I will be able to use 3G for voice/text on the second SIM ? Just confirming, because all the dual SIM phones I have tried so far, drop the second SIM to 2G status if the first one is using LTE, which won’t work for me.

    Thanks

    • I’m not sure if it will work because 3G voice requires UMTS. Typically, when you need to make a voice call, it’ll revert to 2G, so I think it’ll be the same as other devices. What you can do is change which SIM you want to run LTE through, because on 4G you should be able to call.

  5. i own a zenfone 2 currently, do you have benchmarks between the 2 phones? i dont think i would want to give away any performance for these new features, but i would like to know what the tradeoff looks like.

    • Hi Xander,

      I can run the benchmarks for you as soon as I have the device in my hands again. It’s been going around the office like the flu!

    • Hi Xander, I’ve run the benchmark. On the left is the ZenFone 2 Laser, and on the right is the ZenFone 2 4GB/64GB model (not in performance mode). During the benchmark, I think the laser topped at 15-17 frames per second, but the regular ZenFone 2 was at about 30-35. So there is a tradeoff, but for regular things like browsing and playing light games, or watching youtube videos, you should be fine. Here’s a picture from the test: http://imgur.com/vh1eEEz

  6. Hey Khang,

    Thanks for the reply, is there any way you can test it and let me know if one SIM is using LTE, the second one can use 3G/UMTS to make phone calls ? In Canada the few places that sell this handset have no return policy for unlocked phones.

    Thanks,

  7. Come on, ASUS! Still no support for the largest N. American network and single vendor user base??? I would so buy ASUS if you supported CDMA (yes, Verizon). But there is no way I’d ever switch to a crappy network to use it. I have ASUS tablet’s, a Transformer, I would love to have an ASUS phone!!!

        • I’ll second this request …. I’d love to pick up one of these phones, but without Verizon’s network it’s a no-go for me. :(

          CDMA version, pretty please?!?

        • Just adding my vote for a version that works on Verizon. I don’t want to switch from Verizon because I get the best signal in the places I frequent. I need to upgrade my phone already and I’d love to get an ASUS. Please?!

        • Just adding my support for Verizon. I have friends that are tired of their iPhone, and the Zenfone caught their eye, except we are all on Verizon. Hope it is seriously considered!

        • CDMA plz awesome phone but I have verizon.. Asus laptop, Asus transformwr, even my first motherboard on my custom pc was Asus. Sad I’ll have to return the phone.. Shouldn’t have assumed compatibility with verizon

    • Why strictly Verizon? You always use straight talk. Which I wouldn’t recommend, mainly cause customer service. But Cricket is Amazing! Go through any gamestop to get it. I mean unless your in a predominantly Verizon towered area. Then I understand.

  8. Disappointed no band 12. I know T-mobile has issues with VoLTE certification, but still wish you’d found a way to include that coverage.

    • Yeah, totally understand the disappointment there. I can’t really comment on why band 12 wasn’t included here, but I can try to find out why.

  9. i have a asus tablet with key board what a piece of crap every one who bought one has so much troble you can use key board because it wont charge so i dont think i would by your phone could have the same problem just my 2 cents oh its a tf 201

    • Richard – I own a Transformer and can tell you it is AWESOME! Sorry to hear that you had issues with it. Maybe just a ‘bad apple’ in the bunch. I’ve had mine for years now and not one single issue. Take it with me all around the world too…

    • I have an Asus transformer band it works great, keyboard chargers band wh3n tablet is docked it charges the tablet. Very unnecessary to troll an Asus forum

  10. I see this is compatibale with AT & T. I use have Consumer Cellular which uses AT & T. My Samsung Galaxy S3 has an AT & T Card in it so I assume that it will work for me – am I right? Also since it is “unlocked” does that mean the FM radio chip is active and this can be used for NextRadiio?

    • Yeah! Depending on your SIM card size (these take microSIM), you could essentially just pop it in the phone and go! As far as being unlocked and using it as an FM radio, it is active and there is an FM Radio app on the phone that you can use!

  11. Are you sure it supports AWS Band 4 1700/2100MHz? The specs I have seen on Asus’ website elsewhere omit this band even though the earlier ZenFone 2 models have it.

    With AWS, it will be a big hole with T-Mobile coverage.

  12. Kinda lame announce. How about mentioning the screen size? Given it’s two releases behind in android, any timeline for upgrades? Locked bootloader?

  13. Can you confirm that you can use 2 sims and still use a micro SD card on this model? I’m getting conflicting opinions on this, but with all the different models of Zenfones out there, I can never be sure if what someone is saying is true for this model, another one, or simply wrong. I’m asking specifically about the zenfone 2 laser (ZE551KL) with 16 Gb of internal space.

  14. Hi,
    A few questions:
    1. When will it be available in India.
    2. Can different charger be used for fast charging.
    3. Will it come with both wifi bands
    Thanks
    Raj

    • Hi there –

      1) Can’t comment on India, I’m with the North American team, but I can try to find out!
      2) It’s possible, but not recommended. Only use ASUS phones with ASUS chargers
      3) I believe it only supports the 2.4GHz band since it is 802.11BGN

  15. Please clean up the specs that are being thrown around for this new device. Prior to about Nov 11, detailed specs were not readily available from Asus, and retailers websites listed varying specs. Specifically, regarding the inclusion, or lack thereof of LTE Band 12. Bottom line; the phone doesn’t support it, regardless of what a retailer’s spec list may state. This was problematic for me, as I purchased the phone (from a retailer whose spec list specifically stated it did support LTE Band 12) for use on the T-Mobile network via Ting, only to find out upon trying to activate the phone that it would only support 2G. No 3G and no 4G, whether due to the notorious LTE Band 12 issue, or not (certainly wouldn’t explain the lack of 3G service). I don’t know if this is a T-Mobile or a Ting issue, and frankly, I don’t care. The whole business of this network, that network, GSM, CDMA, unlocked, doomed to die locked to Network X, and so on is far more complicated than it ever had to be. And more often than not, it leaves the consumer holding the bag. And the bill. I’m just glad my particular retailer was understanding of my situation, and was willing to accept a return, even though their unlocked phone policy wasn’t supposed to allow it.

    • I’m so happy you love the ZenFone 2. An IR blaster would definitely be a fun addition to the device. I’ll bring that up with our product team! As for updates, I can understand your frustration when you see some other devices being updated. ASUS HQ knows about this as well, and wants to provide the best possible experience instead of pushing things out too fast and that are buggy. Sometimes, that makes the update more problematic than it’s worth!

  16. Hi

    I wanted to know if Asus Zenfone 2 Laser 16GB will work with Family Mobile or Metroc PCS SIMs? Also, should a SIM or a microSIM be sued?

    Thanks

    Best regards
    Sudipta

    • They should work with metro pcs.. If family mobile is a GSM carrier and uses the bands that the phone is compatible with then that as well. The phone used a micro sim.

  17. I have a few quick questions.
    1) On the Asus U.S. website I see something that looks like to be a hardware update to the Original Zenfone 2 2Gb model. Currently I see that there is a black back model with the Atom 1.8 Ghz and 4Gb of RAM http://store.asus.com/us/category/A26847 is this correct?
    2) Where can I buy replacement batteries for the Zenfone 2 Laser?
    3) Will there be a Black Friday deal on either the Original or the Laser
    Thanks!

    • Hi David, to answer your questions:

      1) That’s correct!
      2) Replacement batteries aren’t available just yet.
      3) Currently, there hasn’t been official word from our Product teams regarding deals during Black Friday. I would stay tuned though JIC!

      Thanks for hitting us up! Feel free to ask questions any time!

      • Thanks for your reply, Khang!
        I do have one more question.
        I plan on purchasing either the Zenfone 2 ZE551ML from [amazon, http://www.amazon.com/dp/B014MTBTIG/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=OC2QYUGVGCEN&coliid=I1DCSLG24HI84A&psc=1%5D (it appears they are offering a limited time special where the 1.8Ghz model ships with the Deluxe skins and theme) or the Zenfone 2 Laser ZE551KL within the next week. I would like to know whether or not ASUS will sell OEM replacement batteries for the Laser.
        I would prefer to keep the Zenfone for as long as possible, and knowing Asus’ hardware dependability the only thing that would limit device life would mostly be limited to battery degradation.
        Thanks again :)

        • I believe that we will be selling the OEM replacement batteries, however I haven’t had official word from HQ. To be honest, I believe the Laser is the better buy and there are plans to update to 6.0 as well.

          • Awesome!
            If you don’t mind me asking, In your professional opinion what makes you view the Laser as the better buy?
            Thanks

          • Value – 3GB of RAM, removable battery, laser auto-focus, dual SIMs that both support LTE
          • Qualcomm Chip vs. Intel – not from a performance perspective, but rather from an enthusiast perspective – I think they are faster in providing OEMs source code so ASUS can make updates faster
  18. is this the newest one! Item model number: ZE551KL-15-3G32GN-SR, I just received it as of yet the package remains unopened. can I upgrade to android 6.0

  19. Hi,
    It seems a fantastic phone. I like to know how much memory is available for user in the Asus Zenfone 2 laser 16Gb model. Thanks.

  20. I have been thinking of buying either the Asus Zenfone 2 laser or the Zenfone 2 I was looking at the phones an Amazon and it says with T-Mobile the phones will have only partial 4G LTE what does this mean exactly

  21. I sent a post earlier asking a question about the Zenfone 2 laser having only partial 4g LTE with T-mobile Im not sure how this would affect the performance of the phone additionally i am trying to decide which ph to buy the zen 2 or the zen 2 laser if its worth paying the extra $100 for the zen 2 I dont play games on my ph basically internet, stream vids and of course calling

    • I think what you might have heard is that we don’t support band 12 for LTE. This is fine though! For more basic uses, the zenfone 2 laser is a great option!

      • I’m a T-Mobile user and would not consider a phone without band 12. Your 4G/LTE coverage is going to be spotty without it. If you hardly ever use 4G/LTE, then you’re probably OK.

        • Band 12 is important for T-Mobile users in certain areas. I havent had issues in many of the areas ive been at, but if you find that 12 is a MUST-HAVE, then I would weigh that in your decision!

  22. Hi,

    If I buy the ZE551KL in USA, can it be used when I am in india? (I will be buying this a s gift so the first sim card that I’ll put in this phone will be an indian sim)

    How does it work with the 4G LTE networks in india?

    Thanks.

    • Hi Abhishek, you’ll need to check the bands that your network is using in India to see if you’re compatible with the Laser. If they match, you’re good to go.

  23. Just received my 32GB Laser from B&H Photos. This is only 8 months after my ZenFone 2 550ML. Hope Asus will continue to make great phones at reasonable prices and that more people notice this.

    One drawback is why the built-in SMS app still cannot have customized ring tones? Almost every other app – phone, WhatsApp, etc etc can pick from my own list of ogg files. Anyway to overcome this?

    Thanks.

  24. As of Jan 2016, I still haven’t found a place that sells Zenfone2 laser battery. This is the reason I have been holding off buying this phone. I have ditched Samsung since they move to non-removable battery.
    I normally have 3 batteries for my phone, 1 for use, 1 for backup, and one to be charged.

    However, if I found a good price on LG G4 before zenfone2 laser battery is available, then bye bye ASUS.

  25. I just bought the ZenFone 2 laser. I really like the phone but I am having some issues with all of my photos coming out blurry. My biggest gripe however is, like mentioned above no CDMA support. I bought an AT&T sim and service, especially in my office is non existent. Because of this I’ll probably have to return the phone which is unfortunate.

    • Great thtirpases can help people to change their lives, to accept who they are and to mourn for who they will never be and to come to terms with the yearning for that which they had longed for but never received. It sounds like Diane was a lucky lady. I enjoyed reading your post. It reminded me of my own therapist. Life changing.

    • Look through these schemes.

  26. I bought a Zenfone 2 Laser 3 months ago, and I was very pleased with it but a few days ago the buttons at the base of the front screen just stopped working. I phoned Asus Tech Support which had me do a factory shut down, which did not work. Now I must do a phone swap – my brand new phone for a refurbished one! I didn’t drop the phone, or do anything to cause this, but I have to pay a $25 processing fee and they refuse to give me a new phone to replace my phone, which is basically brand new. I know nothing about the refurbished phone they are sending me; it could have sat at the bottom of the lake for all I know, and to add insult to injury, I have to pay $25 . Their other option was for me to send my phone in to them and wait a minimum of 2-3 weeks before I might have gotten my phone back. Even after I told them that I needed my phone because I would soon be having cancer surgery, this refurbished phone crap was the best they would do. I liked this phone but I don’t think I would buy another Asus product based on what I feel was poor customer service. Keep that in mind.

  27. @Hollynumber2, sorry to hear your bad news.

    I think there’s a QA problem with this model. I bought a new one from Amazon last December, as in fulfilled by Amazon. After rebooting it for the second time, the screen would only come on for a fraction of a second and that’s it. It would flash just once on each reboot. Amazon couldn’t replace, apparently because it wasn’t available at the same price when I bought it. So I got a refund.

    I then purchased another one from B&H Photo (last December). After a few weeks, the microphone worked intermittently. Going through mic on a cable was ok, going through mic on Bluetooth was ok. Now I dread that the built-in mic would go dead and I have to go through the same experience you had.

  28. Really not pleased with this phone. Several times it’s gotten into a reboot loop. Has an old OS with bloatware…

    Seriously thinking about going back to my Nexus 4.

  29. If you use two SIM cards, can the phone receive SMS messages on BOTH of the CARDS/NUMBERS? I plan to use 2 SIM cards from different countries and need to receive the SMS from both.

  30. i also bought a laser 2 551 32 gb in dec. froze up like holly2 sent fact. after 3 weeks still in repair asked for new replacement , nottttt , will never buy another asus product again !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. androed 6 is in there ?i read a blog..where talking about murshmalow..that is androed6….i hve a asus zenphone 2 bt there androed version 5.0.1
    So when androed 6 is coming ?

  32. The phone has an issue with data slowing down both Wi-fi and Cellular throughput rates when bluetooth is turned on. Throughput is at a crawl and I can’t figure out why. However, as soon as I turn bluetooth off, data rates jump back up to normal, all other variables being exactly the same. I have tested this over and over again and have isolated it to bluetooth being the issue. Why does the bluetooth seem to create some sort of interference with data throughput on this phone? It is beyond infuriating because I can’t use a major functionality.

  33. I bought Asus Zenfone 2 (ZE500CL). It takes only 1SIM but, the phone is designed for 4G. I would like to get a support. What can I do to use My GSM SIM as it is?

  34. i have the asus ZenFone 2 and it isnt charging right. I leave it charge overnight and it doesnt want to turn on or its stuck on 1%

  35. When will the Zenfone 3 be available? Will it have concurrent 3G support for both SIMs? At least for voice and text if not for data, after all 2G is becoming obsolete.
    Zenfone 2 Laser has been out for 8 months and it still costs the exact same price as when it launched – don’t think so! I’d rather wait it out.

  36. Attractive section of content. I just stumbled upon your website and in accession capital to assert that

  37. Sir i m using your asus company zenfone max since from last six months..really its very gud mobile..it got a great display undr jst 10k…the quality of the display by playing fullhd videos was awsome..i compared this with lot of other mobile companies like samsung j7,mi Note 3,etc..in all tht asus display got verygud display colour quality..when it is compared the asus display quality quite little greater than other companies..it got amazing display brightness so tht no company can stand opposite of asus when it comes to video quality of display which got more brightness than all other companies…

    • There are two slight variants of this phone which Asus (and other manufacturers too) curiously does not highlight. There is the international version which does not support Band 4 AWS which T-Mobile and some Canadian telcos use. And there is the North American version which has Band 4 AWS.

      If you have purchased it from the Philippines, most likely it is the international variant.

      Most North American telcos who use Band 4 usually also operate on other bands (that this phone support) in the same network, but some areas could be exclusively Band 4. When your phone is unable to use Band 4, you will be connected by 2.5G EDGE only. Your phone data icon will show the E symbol and it is like only a few bits per second.

      For voice calls, it should be fine.
