Djdanish, 10 May 2016i have buy this phone but could not make dual incoming or outgoing call as mention above dual ... moreI heard "Dual Active" here means when ANY one of the 2 SIMs connected to Internet 4G/3G, yes the other sim will have to comply with 2G connection (means 2G calls and messages, NOT INTERNET e.g Whatsapp calls, Hangouts, etc.) but you do have the advantage of SWITCHING to the other SIM slot for Internet (4G/3G) say, when your Internet Subscription/Quota on the 1st SIM runs out for example, WITHOUT NEEDING TO SWAP THE CARDS which otherwise requires turning off the phone for swapping. So probably, you do have the "Dual Active" capability if they're BOTH strictly 2G calls.
I think a "Dual 4G" classification is more accurate than "Dual Active", if you can't do "Dual Active" on 2G calls either.
hey i,s it support high graphic game like fifa 15 or 16 unlimited team...can anyone give this answer plz?????? I want to buy this phone.
paco2x, 21 Apr 2016Asus should change their name models... great phones but confusing as hell.yeah ur right. they should rename their models so that it is not confusing to buyers.
i have buy this phone but could not make dual incoming or outgoing call as mention above dual active . could anyone explain?
ut90j, 05 May 2016Your claims are true. This isn't working together like a true octa-core. You do have the abili... morethank you for replying. it is true that by overclocking the slower cores you can get even more power, but my point as the biggest advantage of a big.LITTLE setup vs True Octacore is in power efficiency, not raw performance speeds.
I wished GSMA would actually complete the Review for SONY Xperia M5 (missing battery test result). The closest devices to it I could find THAT HAVE A BEEN REVIEWED BY GSMA are the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 and the newly reviewed OPPO F1 Plus (Xiaomi is powered by the exact same chipset but featuring a larger screen, while OPPO powered by a newer generation of the Helio moniker, X10 vs P10, and double the Ram, also better GPU). The Xiaomi device posted a 49 H score, while the OPPO device posted a 74 H score. For comparison, the 6.0" FHD Xperia C5 Ultra posted a 62 H score.
Additionally, here I also like to mention the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (Mediatek Helio X10) scored 72 H with a 4000mAh supplying the 5.5" FHD, and the Redmi Mi4 (Sd801, 5.0" FHD, 3080mAh) scored 68 H.
My motivation is to expect and try to prove by waiting for GSMA REVIEW that a SONY device powered by either Snapdragon or Mediatek chipset would last longer on a single charge, by posting higher GSMA Battery Rating than the similarly equipped Xiaomi device, or any other brand for that matter. I've sent them an email on this matter, too.
DuckieDroid, 24 Apr 2016Hi Joboyskill, I see other users have answered at least one of your two questions. Q1: is... moreYour claims are true. This isn't working together like a true octa-core. You do have the ability to make them work more efficiently by overclocking for tasks that are multi-thread tasks that will need more power to operate effectively it'll also bump up single core performance a bit as well. Rooting is the best for any android device. I recommend waiting to get any issues worked out maybe 6-8 months and then following through with root. XDA has a large write up and a lot of one click methods for root on the ze551kl.
DuckieDroid, 24 Apr 2016is it just me, or all Zenfone Lasers have REMOVABLE BATTERIES ? as you can see in the Review... morenot all models of the phone have a removable battery. I believe most if not all of the USA laser variants have a removable battery, but the non-laser models shouldn't have a removable battery.
MacMohan, 03 May 2016Worst experience with ASUS Zenfone 2, Hardware failure forced me to visit the service center t... moredang! sounds like you got the lemon of the bunch. I would call asus and tell them you want it replaced. They actually give prepaid credit cards for the ze551kl that you can use to purchase a new phone while you send yours to them maybe you got a couple bad support reps? I'd try that so you don't get screwed over.
This phone has been great! I did have a little hiccup when I first got it where the firmware didn't want to automatically update, but after installing the latest version provided on the asus support site it's auto updated ever since and hasn't caused any problems. Marshmallow is expected to come end of June for USA so look forward to that. You can alternatively install cyanogenmod 13 and install custom kernels and overclock it cause it's currently underutilized on the second quad it only runs at 1 ghz when it can run at 1.7 giving you an extra 2.8 ghz to play with or more, plus you can get rid of all the bloatware that slows this exceptional phone down in the first place.
Worst experience with ASUS Zenfone 2, Hardware failure forced me to visit the service center thrice within the first six month itself. Asus not ready to replace the hardware as they are saying they offer only Repair Warranty. Repair warranty for how many repairs in an year?? I have not purchased the phone to keep running to the service center and availing the repair warranty. Lost important data thrice and still frustrated as the phone is still with service center.
Does Ze551kl 16GB and 32GB internal memory has the same price!? Thankyou. I'm from Laguna, Philippines :)
is it just me, or all Zenfone Lasers have REMOVABLE BATTERIES ?
as you can see in the Review for ZE551ML a.k.a Zenfone 2 the phone only lets you to pop the back cover for access on those cards slots But Not The Battery
Joboyskill, 04 Mar 2016is this phone supports octa-core or not? I'm very confused with this
"Quad-core 1.7 GHz Corte... moreHi Joboyskill,
I see other users have answered at least one of your two questions.
Q1: is it an Octacore?
Q2: is a double Quadcore (such as this one, big.LITTLE setup) equal to a True Octacore?
A: NO. Because a true Octacore could be Faster by making all its 8 cores working simultaneously to achieve its full speed, big.LITTLE setup I think is an intelligent Power Saving solution to that "True Octacore", by only allowing ?half? of its total of 8 cores to work ?at any given time? by alternating between the two groups, one is fast but uses more energy, one is slower but much more energy efficient, where as the other user said the fast one "kicks in" when detecting heavier tasks/load of activities beyond the capability of the slower cores.
Conclusion: I'm in no position or have any experience/sufficient knowledge to say all these techie stuff accurately, but I'll state my personal opinion anyway.
I categorise the big.LITTLE setup NOT as an Octacore, but as a very intelligent/powerful Quadcore.
Things I'm not sure about are sandwiched by a pair of question marks "?" that I expect other users would enlight me on the matter, or if I made any mistake any other way.
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2016It would be a lot better to use Super AMOLED displays in these and a better stock optimized roms.yeah i agree
Asus should change their name models... great phones but confusing as hell.
A great smartphone that can do better with a Super AMOLED Display,a better optimised software and quick charger.
Does it have quick charge? I'm in doubt some websites mention it has, some says it don't. By the way it has radio. I didn't receive any quick charger with it. I was thinking to buy one. Gsmarena has always been updated but I'm really disappointed this time that they have not updated the specs of this phone. By the way the battery is quite good. Takes out my whole day from 8am till 1 am easily on LTE.
Just tell me about quick charge
