The Zenphone 2 has an equivalent config with an Intel Atom processor with 2.3 Gig processor. So why are we still running after the OP2. Unless, the rate is much lower, it doesn't make sense.

If you think about it, you're actually right. Maybe because the oneplus2 is a little thinner, has better battery, DLNA , finger print reader, snapdragon (which has a better fan base than intel). I personally think its because of their clever marketing that they've probably gotten the edge. All in all, they're both equally good and there's not really a solid reason for someone to choose one phone over the other. In the end, it all boils down to personal preference.
I'd pick up the oneplus if you ask me

Second that, the marketing and branding does make a impact here. Apple is able to sell cheaper than galaxy, iPhone at a higher price. I would prefer a oneplus to an Asus anyday.

1+1 is definitely a wonderful product. I have both the OPO and the Asus Zenphone 2, 4 GB version. Yes, I agree it is a personal preference. My only thought was at approximately Rs. 25,000/- for the 1+2 64 GB version we had an alternate in the Asus, which is cheaper by Rs. 3K if there was an urgency in buying a phone with equal capabilities.

Three advantages of Asus over the 1+
Expandable Memory, Processor and Processor Speed. Just my two bits. No offence to anyone.

Does 1+2 has both sims 4g/3g enabled? Akaik, Asus support only 2g in second sim slot.

The camera is much much better in OP2 and so is the overall build quality. I think the battery is also bigger in OP2.

I have the OPO and it is such an outstanding phone! My other phone is Xperia Z1 and the OPO is better than the Z1 in about everything while the Z1 cost me almost 15k more! IMO Its a waste of money to buy any other android phone costlier than the OP.
