The All-new Zenfone 2 has a gorgeous ergonomic design and winner of the iF Design Award 2015. Zenfone 2 has incredibly-slim 3.9mm edges. This is more than an impressive engineering feat; it’s a marvel of design and ergonomics, making the Zenfone 2 incredibly comfortable to hold.

Zenfone 2 is a 5.5-inch smartphone with a body that’s as small as that of a traditional 5-inch device. This incredible engineering achievement was made possible by reducing the bezel width to the bare minimum, giving Zenfone 2 a remarkable 72% screen-to-body ratio.

It also improves the transistor switching performance which increases the computing performance and decrease the power leakage. Performance Increase-37% , Power save-50 %.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Note 3, the second sequel in a series of super-sized stylus-smitten smartphones, which is even taller, narrower and thinner than the first two of its kind. As expected, the new 5.7-inch Note not only utilizes a S-Pen but enhances its functionality and adds better hardware and components to ensure it's able to handle anything you can throw at it.
The biggest departures in Samsung's design are on the back and sides. The back cover (still removable) eschews the previous-gen's glossy plastic and replaces it with a matte leather finish, with stitching around the borders to complete the isomorphic fashion. It's more comfortable, offers a better grip and doesn't leave fingerprints.
