Possible Zenfone 2 competitors :

We see two tough competitors of Zenfone 2: OnePlus One & Xiaomi Mi4i. But OnePlus One has some very positive points if we compare with Zenfone 2.

Mi4i has a vivid display with the highest PPI density at 441, among the three phones. OnePlus One has 401ppi and Zenfone 2 is just a little higher in that case at 403ppi. In terms of battery backup, the Mi4i has the highest rating at 3120 mAh, OnePlus One at 3100 mAh and Zenfone 2 has a 3100 mAh battery, though fast charging is something which may force users to go for Zenfone 2 instead of the other phones.
