That makes this variant of the ZenFone 2 one of the cheapest smartphone to have 4 GB of RAM in the world. That is if you don't mind the slightly downgraded processor and ROM. Anyway it's still a better buy than the 2 GB RAM variant.
We still don't know though if this will reach the Philippine shores. We'll keep you guys posted.
