    ASUS just made some ridiculously low priced flagships with ridiculously high specs, possible because the Intel Atom processor.
    Should Microsoft make future Lumias with Intel Atom?

    I think ASUS just made the next big success with the Zenfone 2 for only $199...

    It can't hurt. Of course, Microsoft has a good working relationship with Intel. For two decades, the primary computing platform was Wintel. Qualcomm is crushing it in mobile, but Intel is a big player in the market. I wouldn't count them out.

    Nice phone. Shame about the OS.

    I think perhaps a Windows 10 Phone with an i7 and a physical, detachable keyboard would be even better, but I'm not getting my hopes up. :)

    I think once Windows 10 moves to phone, it could be quite natural to use x86/x64 processors for a Windows Phone. It could really make the "Universal Apps" even more universal. Be even nicer if it could run desktop apps with a Bluetooth keyboard/mouse, while miracasting the display to my HDTV. Wouldn't need a PC anymore except for the heavy lifting stuff.

    I'm not terribly impressed by the design.

    The design is indeed quite bland, but those specs for that price though...

    Amazing phones for the money. A win for the consumer. I will be checking out the Asus line.

    I'm definitely checking them out. I know it from CES. Only problem is that it's coming out the same time as all the other flagships and I'm a power user. However if the the phone for that price can stand up then I'm getting it. I really want a change in the manufacturer and I like Asus. I also like Intel chips and Asus design + their low light camera performance with Zenfone 2 :). It's awesome. I'd get Android or Windows version if it came out :).

    Plus 4GB of ram version of course costs more, yet it's still lighting years in front of Samsung and HTC flagship phones that will now jump to ~800 in my place so yeah..
