MarunhaGSM, 26 Aug 2016Hey guys! Quick question!
I can buy this phone today here in Portugal at a discount price of ... moreI have a zen2 here 2gb. It has been working good for the past year and a half. I did receive updates as well several times.
One issue that i did encounter is sometimes it hangs or restarts buy this is probably due to intense gaming. I have been playing online games like clash of kings f9r several hours a day continously and had the drive space of the phone almost maxed out. So i guess this is one of the reason..
It's a good phone. I even dropped this countless times in the bathroom floor and in my room, highest being 2 meters in height. Not a problem.
The only downside i have found is in terms of memory usage. No matter how many times i try to free up memory, clean apps it really only goes down as low as 950mb ram usage.. its half of 1.8gb ram.. but overall very good for 5he price range.
Mike, 27 Aug 2016Great specs. But after having a Zenfone for a year and with the new zenfone 3 about to come ou... moreI am experiencing problem #2 for my slightly 1 over year zenfon2. Never thought such a reputable company could come out with such crap phone.
I Have had a Zen 2 phone for almost a year. and had no problems at all that has not fixed itself in a restart. Camera is great, Speed very fair, comfort in hand great, Glass not even a scratch without cover since new. Price was $200. that"s 1/3 the cost of comparable phones. The Intel Chip seems to work very stable. Sorry to see it go so soon and not improve.
Great specs. But after having a Zenfone for a year and with the new zenfone 3 about to come out I really felt the obligation to warn people about things I never considered before buying it...
1- The WORST customer support I have ever come into contact with. Ever. This isn't based on one experience either. Ive had to deal with them several times. They are incompetent and a bunch of liars. This point is shared by many users on the internet (just do some research if you don't believe me). So why does this matter?..
2- You will have some sort of technical problems with this phone eventually. Most likely the screen will begin to freeze or show lines. This is a known problem with this phone. Again. Do the research and see how many ppl are complaining. If ASUS was a good company this wouldn't be such an issue but...
3-Replacing the device is a straight up nightmare. Took me 3 months to finally get a refurbished product. Plus several hours of chasing these morons to find up what's taking so long. Their answers are mostly lies so this will be one of the most frustrating experiences for you.
4- You will never get an update. I can promise you that. This may not matter to you but it does to many phone consumers so I felt the need to say it. They started by lying to us that a 5.1 update was "soon" coming to the device. A year and a half later they are saying the 6.0 update will soon be coming to the device. We never got 5.1 and when you realize what a bunch of liars this company is made up of you will know that there is no 6.0 update either. Nougat is around the corner so the fact that zenfone users are still naively waiting for a 6.0 update from a company who has basically just dropped them once they bought the phone...well it's just wrong.
This will be my last ASUS product ever. I know they make solid computers but I'm just so disgusted with this company I will never buy from them again.
