Bought this phone last year for me and my brother. We liked it at first time. Really loved it. Good performance for first 2 months. After that, everything is so slow and unable to read sim card, ghost touch, blurry camera, battery problems, etc. After I read all the comments in here, now I know that it's the phone itself. Good for you whose phones still good. But for us whose phones got problems, won't buy ASUS anymore.
I got this phone in 2015, july, 2/16. This phone makes a great headache.. It has some issues, first the unexpected removal of SD card, which actually is a software issue (mine got repaired in 2016 software update), and until today I never have android upgrade (mine still run with lollipop)..
Recently, my phone start having sim card undetected issue, which is purely hardware issue (my sim card is working fine in another phone, thank you) and I got tired of this phone 'attitude' just want to throw this phone and got new one instead. Battery is not good, but I don't have any expectation with that.
bought this in 2015.. has unexpected removal of SD card issues, and then it got fixed in 2016 software update.. my phone hasn't got any android update (still run with lollipop), battery is no good but it's expected..
it got worse now because of sim card not detected issue (what a phone without sim card, a stone?).. I'm sure the problem is purely hardware because my sim card work completely fine with another smartphone.. got tired of this zf2 and considering to buy a new phone

While opening the back case cover using my finger naila, it cracked. The crack is now about 3-4 mm. It's very thin and there is flexing. It should not break in the normal opening of the back cover. Now I'm afraid to upgrade my microSD card.
Was very excited to buy this phone a year ago or so. It looked good, specs seemed fantastic and all. And for a while it worked great. Only complain was the case design: a bit to thin to hold it properly with one hand, although it looked cool, a silicone case fixed the grip problems...
After only a couple months, the screen shattered while in my pocket, probably keys. This things happen. At least it still worked.
A couple of months later, screen turned black and phone stoped working, right in the middle of a panoramic picture session at the beach. To much heat perhaps?
Got it repaired, new original screen installed and some other hardware problem. Official Asus Service in Spain sucked, so I did it in a not official but professional shop. New screen worked perfect, Phone was as new!
2 months later, screen starts to work oddly, not recognizing touch properly. Couple of weeks later, smashed the screen again on my pocket. Gorilla glass my ass!
So after 1.5 years of buying, I'd say is is quite fragile, and kinda lemmony. I'm in a hurry to get another phone.
It looks great, seems like it could have been a great phone, but it sucked ass big time, in my experience. A shame for Asus, an otheriwse great company.

This phone worked great at first. Now, a few months into it, the phone continues to tell me no sim is detected. It is random, but it is happening more and more. I tried restarting...no help. I tried re-inserting the sim card...no help. Now I can only use it basically on WIFI. A waste of my $200 investment!

I have had this phone now for just over a year, and it works fine in every regard. Photos are great; video is superb, and the cost was reasonable. Frankly, I consider it a beautiful phone and am totally pleased with it. The ONLY complaint is that it comes with loads of useless bloatware which you cannot remove.
I have absolutely no problem with this phone. I have been using it for a long time, more than a year now and its superb. Best is the 64 gb it gives, so no need of getting memory card.

I charged my phone to 100% before I slept, then today... this morning... my zenfone 2's battery had only 18% left because it open itself all night. It stuck into emergency call screen all night. I already gave up this phone since today. I'll buy other brand phone. Any recommendation?
I'm using this phone for 6 months and no problem at all. I wonder how can people only using this phone for a few weeks and it already having problem. This phone has a decent graphic quality, fast processing speed, and quite accurate gps functions. Zenfone 2 actually a great phone for a cheap price.
