It's a very nice hardware for its money. I think it's superior to Oneplus One when it first came out. Screen is nicer, build feels sturdier, and getting really regular updates so far. If you want to keep it less than $400 - this is a good phone that gets FHD 5.5". 1.8Ghz with 2GB has been a nice model to play with.

The 2gb ZE551ML model is available from the USA for $199 USD so ~$280 + YouShop costs from Amazon. My brother bought one and it just arrived in the last few days so I haven't had a chance to play with it.

Certainly cheaper - but the LTE bands are not as good as Taiwanese as it covers the full LTE spectrum available in NZ including 700mhz.

I read some early reports these phones had very weak wifi, with many users suffering constant drop outs, after experiencing this frustrating issue on an HTC One X several years ago I stopped looking at the zenfone2. Anyone experiencing this or know if its been resolved?

No problem here with WiFi.
