Hope that asus would add software keys option in the update. Orayt...
I am using the Asus ZenFone 2 ZE551ML with 2GB RAM & 16GB Memory bought on 25 May 2015. Below is my review point wise for a better understanding of the Handset.
1. Looks good holds well but, when you place it on the table and want to type or touch the screen, it seems to swivel like a boat since it has a curved design at the back.
2. Battery lasts for 12 to 14 hours max on constant 3G data on without plying any games and playing videos. If I use the phone for browsing for around 2 to 3 hours it drains the battery rapidly.
3. The screen is sharp but not vibrant, seems dull when you place it in front of much cheaper Samsung or HTC handsets. You feel duped when you see that happening.
4. RAM: one word, pathetic! You get 222MB max available no matter whatever you do or application you use to clean it. After the last update in December the phone has become an annoying piece of equipment. I am looking forward to change it with a Samsung or a Motorola.
5. Major issue with display which I can (I guess) only resolve by giving the handset at the service center. The screen freezes most of the time and becomes non-responsive. The keypad and the numbers punch themselves and no matter how much you try and punch the back button, nothing works. I tried reasoning with the customer care over the online chat and they advised to clear the cache partition which I did and after that the phone lags as a 512MB RAM equipment. It is just pathetic.
I would advise people to go for a much trusted brand like Samsung, LG, HTC, Mi rather than such deceptive brands. They don't have any network of service centers neither any trained technician to serve the customers. I spent 15K on it, I could have got myself a any other handset with much better performance.
6. Camera of this handset is a shame. Front or back it is just too damn dull.
There are no Pros for this handset. At a price I paid, it is a Bad Purchase. A handset at this price should have atleast the capability of giving a consistent performance without any lag. 2GB RAM is a lot given the everyday tasks. I wouldn't complain how much is left if it wouldn't lag but, shamefully it does. I mean what does these companies expect us to do? Buy the phone with claimed performance and keep it on safe mode, using the data only when it is required and keep the super saving option on always? Then, why the hell say that it is the ultimate phone at the this price? You have much better options available.

Hi all, I've been using zenfone2 (64gb/4gb ram) for quite some time and I have to say that I'm happy/satisfied the overall performance of it. Battery is a challenge but it's a given since I keep playing online games that uses data connection. I love how I can multitask with it as well. The only thing that annoys me is that if you CALL someone from contact list, it wont give you an option to switch from sim1 to sim2. It goes directly to sim1. Even if you call number from messages it will automatically choose sim1. The only time it will be available is if the number has been dialled already. Wondering if anyone is experiencing the same issue. Or is this how zenfone2 really work. Thanks,
I'm in love with this phone. Seriously, gaming experience is awesome.. audio w/ or without headset is very full. Camera is fine with me (printed documents can be read clearly.) I'm not sure why others complain about heating issues, when mine doesnt heat up that much.. it's warm but it's not hot, even when i'm charging it (and i have a phone protector) which should add up to the warmness. charges fast. longest charge i did was 1hr and 15 mins. thats from a battery of less than 20%. OTG is cool aside from the USB device getting hot, i mean really hot. only problem i'm having now is flash player. it seems like its not compatible because of intel processor. anyways i can live without that. Overall, 100% satisfied with the phone. Im getting what I paid for. So glad i bought this over the selfie one.. :P
anyone knows how to root zenfone 2 without pc? I've tried all like kingo, kingroot etc bug nothing seems working

I buy Zenfone 2 Ze551ML type Ram 4 Gb in "New Year 2016". before i used Zenfone 4s.
i just say, if you need Performance Zenfone 2 is Best, for game, multitasking etc. but it's camera not good & not bad too. Don't say any false opinion. be a smart man guy's.
The Important is "BUY ORIGINAL PHONE" not BM, KW, Recond or else. Thank's.
