Karly, 09 Apr 2015The SOT lasts 3.5hrs playing Modern Comabat 5 continuously.That's actually pretty good Karly, which model do you have and did you update to the latest firmware update? I've got the 1.8GHz/2gb ZE551ML model and the SOT has been roughly the same under heavy usage.
Battery backup is very good for the ZenFone 2 551ML 2.3GHz & 4GB RAM version...!
Here is the video which shows the battery life while playing heavy game Mortal Combat 5 with full brightness and WiFi on...and the phone lasted for 3 and half hour with heavy gaming...!
vins, 07 Apr 2015did you have the phone working on dual lte mode? I got mine and don't even get lte just 4g on ... moreSim 1 supporting LTE very well in AZ. But Sim 2 sadly only supports VOICE, no data. I understand why that would be the battery life would be hideous. is there any phone out there that support LTE on both of Sims at the same time?
kaichou, 09 Apr 2015that means you own a 550... the 551 has FHD screenI have full hd.
Cris, 08 Apr 2015You probably cannot read Italian cause it says the battery lasted from 7 in the morning till 5... moreI translated it in English. I need good SOT not how many hours the phone last. I play games regularly, if phone SOT is less than two hours it is pretty much useless. Currently I use xperia sp, which gives 3 hours of SOT
kaichou, 09 Apr 2015The "test" carried out in that italian blog was not in the least bit scientific... i... moreIncorrect, as she answered my question about that before with a lengthy, yet relevantly detailed review of her ZE551ML model in the comment section here. Just go back a few pages or so and you'll find it instantly.
Cris, 08 Apr 2015You probably cannot read Italian cause it says the battery lasted from 7 in the morning till 5... morewell... I think u do have a hair trigger and amusingly made the same mistake in your retort... he's referring to SOT, aka screen on time, hence the 2 hours he's speaking of.
The "test" carried out in that italian blog was not in the least bit scientific... it had its reason d'etre for showing us the wakelocks bug, but don't take it to a face value.
I will wait for GSM arena's battery test that's very standardized, consistent and allows comparison amongst different devices.
(so please hurry up)
Crixusfone, 08 Apr 2015z551ml(4gb) battery life SOT is less than 2 hours http://android.hdblog.it/2015/04/07/ASUS-Ze... moreYou probably cannot read Italian cause it says the battery lasted from 7 in the morning till 5pm. Plus with 10 mins of charging he got the battery to 40%
My phone has NO, repeat, NO battery issue. I did not have one before the update and I do not have one now. This is NOT A ZENFONE 5 so get over it. I get at least a day and a half with my 551 which has the 1.8Ghz processor, HD screen and 2Gb of RAM. I cannot however speak for the larger 2.3 version with 4 gigs of ram but it would be foolish to believe it is as efficient as mine. The memory issue is really a non issue too. When google gets around to fixing that, it will be fine. Until then, just restart the phone once in a while or use the included Clean Sweep to recover cached memory. The only mistake you people could make is not buying this phone if it has the specs you need.
Crixusfone, 08 Apr 2015z551ml(4gb) battery life SOT is less than 2 hours http://android.hdblog.it/2015/04/07/ASUS-Ze... moreThe thing is that lollipop has battery issues that they are trying to fix and RAM leaking. They have fixed RAM leaking, but Asus haven't updated Zenfone 2 yet. And they are still trying to fix battery issues. I believe, when that comes out, phone will live longer.
Pls anybody ensure me about Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML (1.8 processor and 2GB ram)Battery life. How long stay battery for normal user or median user ?
Crixusfone, 08 Apr 2015dont buy 551ml version,go for other one of the two versionsdon't buy ? why?? i am already about to order this ze551ml. any reasons pls.? thanks
