Can you root the ASUS ZenFone 2?

Has better specs then the Moto G. But the Moto G doesn’t have very much crapware on it. One of the reviews says the ASUS has a cheap feeling. The Moto G is a good phone, probably not a cheap feel, it would cost less most likely if it had a cheap feel. And you can change the colors on the Moto G, if you order from Motorola.

ASUS might be a pain to root. Having to click more then one button is a pain.

The ASUS phone doesn’t have Android 5.1.1? That’s a bummer.

Of course I can’t decide which phone. The Moto G would be slightly cheaper. Really only need a phone as fast as the nexus 4. Or wait until September and get the Moto X Pure Edition. But that phone is overkill for me.

Think I’ll get the ASUS phone. Should be as fast as my LG G3 is supposed to be, if it didn’t throttle itself.
