I don't know why some people hate Mediatek chips. Don't you know that HTC uses mediatek chips and had great sales in China. Especially when the Sony Xperia C was released it also sold like hotcakes. I had 4 Mediatek powered phones in the past 4 years and all of them were smooth until new versions of Android came up. My MT6582 runs better than my SD 400

I can't understand people who hate mediatek so much. My phone got mediatek processor and it doesn't heat up. It's so power efficient also. It gets the job done from browsing to gaming. I don't use LTE. No more bashing on Taiwanese chip maker. If you want the Intel or Qualcomm variant, it's your choice. Let people choose the variant they want.

Good specs when in my country not too much $250,lol
And also not hope for MediaTek Come in Indonesia,Want Original version

Mediatek and Snapdragon use ARM architecture. Whereas Intel use x86/x64 architecture. ARM architecture is much more compatible and battery effectiveness for Android device.

I don't understand the company's logic behind adding a SD as well as an Mediatek variant. The SD version is understandable... But a mediatek, why? Just because some countries don't have 4G LTE capability yet? Well if that's the reason then Asus is gonna come crashing down to the floor. They have not yet officialy announced that Intel version is/isnt gonna hit the Indian market so be positive my Indian brothers and sisters I don't think Asus is that naïve to skip a profitble Indian market.
And one comment surprized me "Asus suggested that they have high expectations from the lower end Zenfone 2". Really? A ZF2 with Intel inside + 4GB RAM + 13mp cam ..... Just for $300 isn't costly at all!

AnonD-363513, 14 Feb 2015Jeesuz! The Intel SoC can only be beaten by a Snapdragon 810 or ... moreI didn't see anywhere ASUS made mention of SD 810 SoC as their Qualcomm chips of choice,probably the SD 410 or SD 610 at the most will be gracing the Zenfone 2..

AnonD-323199, 14 Feb 2015Highly disappointed,was eagerly waiting for this but see what i ... moreMediatek also very good in terms of SoC. I think asus ZF2 will come with 6732-quardcore 64bit soc or 6752 octacore 64bit SoC. Both the SoC are capable of 4G LTE ( TD LTE & FDD LTE in india) and Good GPU. But in india 4G taking too much time to implement. So, Asus will ditch 4G Connectivity for Indian Market. If they ditch 4G, Asus will go away from India.

  • mk

if this is going to be mediatek and only 3G i am not buying it.

  • reebas

India is gonna get Mediatek 5 inch 720 p 2gb version for 12-13k and the launch will be around June. So dont believe in reviews until this version is launched in India. The Intel version will also be launched but wud be priced around 18-20k. Yureka seems to be a better option who dont want to wait
