ASUS Zenfone 2 Pops Up in SM Megamall for Php10,500

A Little More Expensive To Get it First

We were going around SM Megamall earlier today and we decided to check out if there were any stores offering the new ASUS Zenfone 2 already. Our hunch proved to be good as there were a few shops with limited units already. One of the stores is Premium Mobile and they were selling the Asus Zenfone 2 for Php10,500. This is the 16GB storage, 2GB RAM, 1.8GHz variant. We asked them how many units they have up for grabs and they said that they were down to three (black and white colors only).

Please note that these units are still unofficial and as such you don’t get the full ASUS warranty. At best the shops will offer you a limited service warranty. This is also reflected in the price. Based on our calculations this model should retail for less than Php10,000 (maybe around Php9,500).

Check out our hands-on review of the Asus Zenfone 2 below which we filmed during our recent trip to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain:

  1. Thanks for posting this. I’ve been waiting for this phone since it was announced! Would you know whether these shops have branches in sm southmall?

  2. I can’t forget that premium mobile store. I bought an xperia t way back year 2012 at festival mall alabang. what a waste they didn’t have parts and service warranty and their management are bunch of liars incompetent. better buy to other shops with full warranty.

  3. kala ko ba sana 8k yan??
    masyado eh kaya hindi naunlad ang technology ng ating bansa pinapatungan nyu agad.. kaya hindi nagiging sold out ang isang brand gawa sobrang taas ng presyo… dapat kung anung ipresyo sa isang bansa gayundin dito sa ating bansa… kaya binabansag sa atin curruption eh..!!

    1. Hahaha.. Anurawdaw… Pro yung totoo? Haha.. Fyi.. The phone isnt produced here.. Its being “imported” from china.. Taxes do apply and retailers needs to run a business to pay their employees.. kya natural ang patong.. Try mo bumalik ng skul pag my time ^_^

      1. Hindi mo po maiintindihan kac po d kapo business centered. Try mo mag negosyo para mantindihan mo kung bakiy may patong ang price nila
        Unless nalng kung sa asus store ka mismo bibili walng patong un. Kung kapos po ang budget nyo
        Wag nyo sisi sa mga store na d sakop ng asus and sell lng dn yan cla

    2. Pagdi kaya nang budget maghanap na lang po nang mura. Hindi ung maninisi nang iba. Natural na magkapatong yan dipende pa ung ipapatong nila kung saan nila kinukuha ung paninda nila. Sino ba naman negosyante ang ayaw kumita. At sino ba namang negosyante ang magpapatong nang sobrang taas to the point na wala nang bibili nang paninda nila. And after all “you have the option to buy the item or not”. Kaya hindi umuunlad ang pinas di dahil sa ganyang negosyante. Kung di po sa mga kagaya mo na, makitid ang pang unawa sa mga maliliit na bagay na gaya ganito. Cheers! waiting for this phone i hope that this is ZE551ML 16GB / 2GB / 1.8GHZ Quad core. Di ko naman need nang mataas na storage pang normal call and text and COC at other games lang.

  4. Don’t ever purchase anything from Premium Mobile store. Their sales people in Megamall branch are slackers. They don’t know the specs of the units on display. They won’t even let you demo the unit. Sayang naman. Pang display lang talaga.When I entered the store, the whole place was filled with pancit odor. Nagchichikahan lang young employees.

  5. wag na wag kayo bumili sa PREMIUM MOBILE … its a complete scam … dami nila na goyo na customer na ayaw na lang mag pagulo, madalas ang box hindi sealed at usually walang kasamang headset ang item na bibilhin mo … go to other stores instead …tsaka return policy nila anlabo … pag may irereklamo ka, dami alibi whereas sa ibang store maganda ang customer service
