Asus has unveiled its new ZenFone 2 Phablet at CES 2015. Asus really outdid itself in its signature value-for-money territory, outing a phone with 1080p display, 13 MP camera, fast 64-bit processor, and a hearty battery for two Benjamins in starting price.
Design-wise, the Asus ZenFone 2’s taking a little cue from LG, sporting a volume rocker placed fair and square on the back of the phone. By the company's own calculations, its phablet has a screen-to-body ratio of 72%, which falls in the middle as far as 2014 devices are concerned, and offers the passable dimensions of 6 x 3.03 x 0.43 in (152.5 x 77.2 x 10.9 mm).
Equipped with 5.5-inch Gorilla Glass 3-protected display with resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, returning an excellent 403 pixels per inch count, and offering 400 nits of brightness, the Asus ZenFone 2 is powered with 64-bit Intel Atom Z3560 1.8GHz Quad Core CPU, 32GB internal storage (expandable up to 64GB), 13-megapixel rear camera (5 element, f/2.0 aperture lens, a dual-color Real Tone LED flash) and 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
The company's biggest surprise with the handset is left for the memory department, though. The ZenFone 2 might start you off with 2 GB of RAM in the basic version, but the more expensive ones will come with 4 GB of RAM, making it the first smartphone announced with more than 3 GB of RAM, which the native 64-bit Android support, and the new 64-bit processors make possible now. Asus claims seven times faster gaming performance than the previous ZenFone edition, which has to count for something.

When buying a mobile phone that you intend to use for gambling, there are a number of considerations to bear in mind. The most important of these are the connectivity, the display, and the general convenience. Interestingly one of the least important considerations for gambling at JackpotCity is the speed of the phone’s processor. Over recent years a great emphasis has been placed on making phones with ever more complex and fast processors. For instance quad 1.9 GHz processors are now available, which is important for some gaming applications. These far exceed the basic requirements for gambling; any phone with a 700 MHz single core processor (for instance the iPhone 4) is perfectly adequate.
In terms of connectivity it is important to select a 4G phone. Although currently proper 4G is not available generally, the 800 MHz band has now been entirely freed from TV broadcasts and it will only be a matter of months before network providers launch full 4G services using it. This will make a huge difference to connectivity in more rural locations. In fact up to 98% of mobile phone users will be able to access it. There are few things worse than losing connection with your mobile casino when you are on a winning streak and this just shouldn’t happen with 4G.
In terms of display size, there are now a number of Android phones with display sizes of 5 inches and larger. For mobile gambling you really need a display of at least 4.5 inches which would really rule out the iPhone 5 were it not for some mitigating factors such as its excellent brightness and retina definition. You could consider opting for a phone with an even larger display, say 5.7 or even 6.1 inches. But once displays get to that size the phones tend to become inconvenient and uncomfortable to hold, especially if you want to make phone calls with them.

Under the hood there are 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. For extra storage, there is also a microSD card slot.
Equipped with 5.5 inch screen display with resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, the LG Optimus G Pro runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system and also features 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, 13-megapixel rear camera and a 3140mAh battery.
