Don't worry about all the bloatware, just update to android 6.0 and it will all be deleted. You can expect more than 6 hours of battery at low brightness, no location, no bluetooth. Camera is okay like all phones at that price. But the best thing is ZenUI, you can customize every aspect of the phone it's awesome! I've used it heavily for a few days, never lagged or heated up and there's always more than 1GB of ram free. Best good phone for the price, better than Moto G3, you should definitively buy it. If you find this phone a bit too overpowered I would recommend Grand Prime.
Terrific phone for the price!
Pros: Unlocked, decent screen resolution, good battery life, 3 GB RAM, Micro SD slot, Dual SIM (for those who may use this).
Cons: Very slow OS update releases from ASUS, Marshmallow 6.01 does not support apps2sd (the ability to install / copy apps to SD card), wifi is 2.4Ghz only, weak screen backlight, all-plastic contruction, weak 3D graphic acceleration (Adreno 405), lots of bloatware included, low camera image quality (Laser focus is a gimmick).
This is an excellent cheap phone, and highly recommended for those who need an unlocked phone on a budget, e.g., if your flagship is in for repair. It's a good all-rounder that performs smoothly for everyday use, but it's terrible with 3D games.

My Asus Zenfone Laser 2 550, is prompting for an Software upgrade, to Android 6 Marshmallow. Has any one done the upgrade, and can any one share there experience about the phone, post upgrade.
Thanks in advance.
mr.t, 17 May 2016hey i,s it support high graphic game like fifa 15 or 16 unlimited team...can anyone give this ... moreIf you want graphical performance you may want to consider its Twin Sister, ZE601KL.
They're both very similiar in specs, looks and size exactly the same.
ZE600KL: SD615, 720p Screen resolution (my personal preference for battery life and Gaming Framerates)
ZE601KL: Some variant equips the newer SD616 if you're in one of the lucky regions, 1080p Screen resolution (may be better for such a 6.0" big phone for PPI sake, but not for framerates nor battery life).
Notable similiarities: 6.0", Adreno405, both have 2GB/3GB ram variants region dependent, both have 16GB/32GB ROM variants region dependent, Expandable Memory (128GB?), 3000 mAh Removable Battery (too small for both variants of such a big screen as i am a power user, Snapdragon 615 is quite the power sipper though. Removable Battery = Unlimited Capacity :-D)
