prathapds1, 01 Jun 2016Why they dropped Intel processor ? Because Intel quits the mobile CPUs (there were some announces by Intel about the new strategy).
i will no longer use asus brands,
at first, i was asus loyalist, i had this PC with asus motherboard, it still function normally for one decade and then my laptop asus a42JA i5 variant, 6years, and i still use it by now,
but thats it, nowaday, asus can no longer keep their qualities and services, i have this fonepad me371mg, its totally dead now, cheap battery parts, i assume, it only last for less than a year, and then my office' zenbook UX303LN, bad quality hinges and HDD dead after just 2 weeks, after sending it to service center, and repaired, problems returns, and i had to manually replace all these HDD by myself, despite of void warranties, because users cant wait for 2 weeks service,
at last, when asus introduces asus zenfone 2, it really catch my attention, budget phone with 4gb of RAM, and then i purchase it (traded in with samsung galaxy s2), at first i didnt notice, there is deadzone in the touchscreen, some areas we cant touch, and this ghost touches, after sending it to service center, thats another 2 weeks waiting time, i finally got this phone repaired, it seems normal at first, i do some SMMI test, but after another weeks, the problems returns, its all on the internet, i'm not the only one with these symptoms.. but it seems that asus didn't care
its a pity, for asus, they going to lose their customers, if they dont improve their quality, market will lose their trust on asus,
i dont mind if zenfone 2 is a little bit expensive than current price, as long as they built it to lasts, like my 10yrs old motherboard, and my 6yrs laptop,
now i'm totally returning to samsung, yes samsung are much more expensive, and the specifications are less than what asus offers, but theres something that asus fails to deliver, worry-free experience,
and now whatever asus offer, i feel sceptical,

worst phone ever! i've just using this phone for not more than a year. just because it has fallen for once, the camera can't function at all as well as the torchlight. for your info, this is the second time my camera can't function. for the first time it can't function, i dont know why. i had bring it to the asus centre and they repaired it for a week. but for this time, i had asked to the asus centre about this prob and they said the warranty was expired. i dont want to repair it by using my money. so i hink bfore buying this phone, pleaseeeeee QA/QC just release the good quality to the market. tq.
Sharan10, 24 May 2016How come my screen got scratches when it supposedly is a Gorilla glass?For some reason on gorilla glass phones a lot of scratches occur. I have a Nokia Lumia 920 with gorilla glass and there are so many scratches on it. But the durability of the actual phone is great. Also could you please tell me how long the battery lasts for on the Zenfone 2?
Android and IOS fan, 25 May 2016I own a zenfone 2 and i have been using it for 4 years and it hasn't failed me yet. Its batter... moreStrange.. it only came out last year so you using it for 4 years is a littke bit too much.
I don't have any experiencing problem with the battery. First impression is 4GB RAM and quad core with 64 bit, I think it can be more fun while playing the game. I don't want to say it's useless now because after two months I bought this my mobile phone, now experiencing restart again and again until overheat (too hot for mobile phone). Some blog says it's problem in motherboard.
If you think this mobile phone is the good one, you better search about what problems list of this mobile phone and please considered after buying this mobile phone. The spec, it's might be great and some people that use this mobile phone doesn't have a problem with this mobile phone. Anyway you still have guaranty card and any spare time to go to service center if the problem occur.
seems the 4gb/64gb version catches my interest
such whopping storage/ram..
im currently using redmi note 3 pro 16gb/2gb..quite happy using it for now
can someone clarify, should i sell my redmi to get zen2 4gb/64gb..one feature that concern me is
Antutu benchmark, my friend's zen2 4gb/64gb scored 49xxx-50xxx..while my redmi always score 75000-80000(snapdragon 650 really powerful, outmatches 805).
thats deal breaker for me.
