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).
