Asus Zenfone 2 Deluxe Special Edition First Look and Specifications

Zenfone 2 Deluxe Special Edition

want something special? This may be one of the best variant of zenfone 2 with a limited edition design and different from the others. Let's see zenfone 2 deluxe special edition.

I am very impressed with the Asus Zenfone 2 deluxe packaging. Asus Zenfone 2 deluxe special edition packaging  has a carbon pattern with red accents in the middle add a special impression. zenfone 2 deluxe red lettering at the top is perfect shades combined with carbon.

What do you get if you buy zenfone 2 special deluxe edition? You will get two pieces back cover, one with silver metallic color that has 3d design deluxe and one back cover with carbon style. both were very comfortable in the hand, especially patterned 3d deluxe that add grip when in the hands

How about the UI? ZenUI has been revamped with a new look and it is SLICK. To go along with the red trim of the Special Edition, unique icons, wallpaper, and notification menu was created to complete the package. Each icon is outlined in red against a 3D-looking black disk and the application folders mimic the style

Performance? like the original, this Special Edition inherits the Dual-SIMs, 4GBs of RAM and the Intel® Atom™ Z3580 processor

[APK] ZenMotion Camera



ZenMotion basically houses all of the gestures that ASUS has built into the Zenfone 2. Which aren’t many, and there’s actually only two. That’s Touch Gesture and Motion Gesture. With Touch Gesture, When the screen off, you can draw a letter to open up a specific app. For example, if you draw an S on the screen, it’ll turn on and launch the Messaging app. You can customize which apps are opened, but not the letter you draw to open them. So for example, I could change the S to open Hangouts, but I can’t change it to another letter. The letters you can use are W, S, e, C, Z, and V, with the only lower case letter being the e.
With ZenMotion Camera, You can draw W/S/e/C/Z/V to Open Camera feature, such as Selfie Camera and ZenUI Camera. Today ASUS Zenfone Blog will share post About ZenMotion Camera, ZenMotion Camera created by Shakalaca and Original post can be read here

Download ZenMotion Camera APK:

How to Install and Set-up:

  1. Download APK Above and Install it
  2. Go To Settings > ZenMotion

  3.  Select Touch Gesture

  4. Select your pattern for Zen Selfie(I will try S)



  5. Done, Try it (lock the screen and Draw S, Selfie Camera will be open)
