    Using the Zenfone 2 32GB/4GB Ram version for a week. Never been happier with a phone. Battery drains a bit faster, but you can easily pass a day with a single charge considering moderate use(4-5 hours call + 2-3 hours web browsing with wifi). Best thing is it takes less than an hour to fully charge the battery. The camera performance is pretty good specially in low light. There are some nifty camera features like slow motion, time lapse, depth of field etc already built in. I would recommend buying an aftermarket headphone though. The stock one is kind of decent but not for music listeners. And, there some bloatwares that comes installed by default(however, you can easily uninstall/disable them). Adding widget on the lockscreen seems kind of impossible with the ZenUI at the moment. Antutu score is close to 50,000 right beside LG G4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4. And, it holds up 30+ FPS all time in the Antutu 3d test. I have heard that this phone gets warm, but I have not experienced anything out of ordinary yet.

    Zenfone had the worst camera and worst audio quality i have ever encountered in a smart phone. Even my current Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is much better than Zenfone in terms of camera and audio quality.

    Yeah, sony has one of the best cameras and sounds in mobile device. The legacy of Cybershot & Walkman I reckon. But, seriously zenfone's not the worst I think; at least at this price range. And, low-light mode was actually producing less noise than HTC one and Iphone 5 although the resolution was down to 3MP. Pretty good for casual use and I also like the features that came with the default camera app. However, I actually agree on the sound department. I forgot to mention the audio wizard app which someone has to use to get the sound somewhat right. Actually, before activating the app, there was no bass at all.

    It lags. And, it's from 2013. A phone from 2013 means it's on the same page as Nokia 1100. Just kidding!

    But seriously it lags.

    If you are on a tight budget and willing to get old phone get a LG G2, pretty much beats all the phones in your list.

    I have been looking for A3 all over but alas it has been discontinued
    I think its the perfect smartphone; not too long, vibrant colors, slim and affordable price
