The ZenFone 6 is a new smartphone from ASUS, with a six-inch HD (1280 x 720) touchscreen and Android 4.4 “KitKat” operating system. It has an Intel Atom Z2560 1.6 GHz CPU, 2 GiB of RAM, and 16 GiB storage space (in the model we analyzed), a 13 MP main camera, and a 2 MP frontal camera. Let’s take a good look at it.

The ASUS ZenFone 6 is simply a bigger version of the ZenFone 5, which we already analyzed. It has a bigger screen and a better main camera, but besides that, they have the same characteristics. The ZenFone 6 is found with 8 GiB, 16 GiB, and 32 GiB storage space, and with 1 GiB and 2 GiB of RAM. The model we tested is an A601CG, and there is another model called A600CG, which has a faster CPU.
