Dont get the 5". its using Z2560 from previous generation

The 5.5" uses the newer processor Intel Atom Z3560

I just ordered the 64gb/4gb version from amazon. How do I check which processor I got?

I too would like an aluminium rear cover, but with a flip if anyone sees one please. This may be a stupid question but can the NFC be taken off the current plastic cover and placed on the new one?

I would like to know too. I bought a replacement back cover which doesn't include the NFC antenna (most/all of them don't).

If not possible, it's not a big deal as I don't use NFC currently.

I bought 2 back covers from AliExpress, $2.99 each.
it's actually good, fits perfectly and has great holding to it.
it's not like original one that slippy.

the only thing is the power button on top isn't working at all.
it's not moving at all or it's not touching the power source under
so you can't use it to power on & off the phone.
that really sucks.

i have 3 cans of PlastiDip Aeorsol cans sitting at my desk. gonna coat the case in rubber this evening. tired of waiting for rear cover replacement that had actual grip to it.

they really screwed up this rear cover with the 'grain' going side to side. almost everyone has to hold this phone with their fingers flowing along with the grain. such a slip hazard.

I just successfully transplanted the NFC from the old back cover to the replacement one I got.

You just need to peel it up with your fingernail to start and carefully separate it.

It sticks down easily on the other cover.

Well, my red "original" back battery housing has arrived from AliExpress (3C Online) and it's not bad at all. I doubt it is an "original" but the quality seems as good as the original silver one that came with the phone, it fits perfectly and the on/off button works fine. Of course, there's no NFC.

Do you have a link? Cant seem to find the store. Looking for one with the on/off button working
Thank you

Hi all!

There hasn't been official news from HQ regarding the availability of back covers. However, for those of you interested in the ZenFone2 Deluxe's back cover (the 3D, color-changing, and faceted one) I might be having a giveaway real soon! Stay tuned!

Are you an official rep?

Hi !

Very interested in this, as I'm not fond of the metallic back cover (I actually bought the ZF2 thinking that I'll change the backcover since it's "just" plastic. Didn't thought of the NFC, and the fact that Asus won't release any official replacements.)
Keep us updated, I love the Deluxe's back cover !

Yup...from our NA Headquarters :)

Thanks! Good to know. Besides your giveaway, (which sounds exciting!), I would like ASUS to release these covers to the market officially too. It's been a while since the device was released, and neither the software (5.1) nor hardware (back covers) sides are too promising. Although I have to commend the ASUS app team who seem to be doing a great job (e.g. recent changes to the file manager).
