I have the 2.3Ghz/4GB version. Many are complaining about its battery life, but for me it's average, considering the specs. I've had this phone for a month and I usually get around 5 hours screen-on time (SOT). So far, my maximum SOT is 6 hours and 12 minutes with 4% remaining on battery. I had to uninstall/disable a bunch of bloatware, though. I also use Auto-Start Manager (pre-installed) and Greenify (downloaded) to help save battery.
I am using Zenfone 2 ZE551ML which I bought in in august. Runs smooth. Happy with zenfone support and updates.. faced problem after few days of purchase, for which I got service free of cost..

Entropist, 06 Jan 2016I bought the 4GB, 2.3Ghz, 64GB version from qd_au eBay early Dec 2015 for A$389. Needs getting... moreMine started to flicker last December 29 2015, had the update after but still screen problems persisted ie: flickers, fades to all white, vertical bands appear, videos play but you can't see a thing, camera don't work especially the one in front, everything gets worse when power is at 35% or less but is normal so to speak when plugged in or you have been tinkering with the phone for a while.. I have half a mind to slam this against a wall if it wasn't still under warranty. Was so proud of my purchase but now not so much!
I have recently purchased zenfone 2(ze551ml) mainly for the reason that it has quite good output via headphones but I cannot feel any difference between my previous grand prime or galaxy j7. At max volumes it distorts at highs and mids.
I am using cowon em1 or mi piston 3 earphones.
Is this normal or there is something wrong with my handset?﻿
phone (32gb ,4rgb ram in dual channel mode) is awesome.battery with cool use dont drain fast (we talking about 5.5 inch screen!!!).its a very fast phone in all apps ingluding GPS ,camera is midle (or u can buy a DLSR), desing is very good.
This phone is seriously a dissapointment. Battery drains too fast. Overnight with super saving on and data off, yet u lose 10 to 15% power in the morning. U have to rely on powerbank the whole day.Gets really hot when charging and while talking. A dud phone. I have bought a samsung A8 now. No such problems. Will never buy asus products ever again

Regarding screen-shot, Asus provide a one touch screen shot button which you can activate by scrolling through settings.
Regarding warming up, every phone heats up when after continous use so thats not an issue.
I find battery life is Ok.. we can still work around 12 hrs with effective use.
