So why I chose these two? Basically, battery, camera and performance are the top qualities that people consider, and based on my own experience in using these phones, I can say that they perfectly befit the requirements:

First, compared to other smartphones, these phones can survive a one whole day without a power bank even with Cellular Data on; second, the camera has a great potential, both have SUPER HDR and laser auto-focus that indeed work very good; third, both phones are dual SIM and LTE supported; fourth, they have expandable storage up to 128GB; fifth, they have Android 5.0 (Lollipop) platform; sixth, they respond to every touch even with gloves; and lastly, they comprise ASUS TruVivid technology for clarity, brightness and touch responsiveness.
