juju, 26 May 2017is this phone worth buying?Seriously, No. Better for you to buy the Mi Max Prime. The Mi Max Prime has a larger battery (4850mAh vs. 4600mAh for the Zenfone ultra) so you enjoy the big screen longer. Both have the same screen resolution (1920x1080) and the same Snapdragon 652 processor so you're getting the same processing power and screen quality. The Mi Max has slightly smaller screen size (6.44" vs. 6.8" for the Zenfone ultra) but it is by no means a large disadvantage especially when you consider that the slightly smaller screen makes the Mi Max easier to handle and more pocketable. The Mi Max size is what I would call a 'true phablet (still a phone) while the Zenfone 3 ultra is more of a 'mini tablet' with phone functionality. The Mi Max also has an infrared blaster built in which gives you a powerful master remote controller for almost all your appliances everywhere you go (tv, dvd/bd/cd players, receivers/amplifiers, cable/satellite tv box, aircon, etc.). The Zenfone 3 ultra does not have remote control functionality. Lastly, you can get two Mi Max 128 GB phones for the price on one Zenfone 3 ultra 64GB phone. In short, the Zenfone 3 ultra is just not worth buying given its current price and lack of compelling features that justify its 2 times the price over the Mi Max.

I got the 7.0 update... Everything works great, except the music app doesn't work properly (it worked great prior to the update). And the sd card continues to be re mounted (stayed mounted prior to update) and when turning the screen on the mounting process makes the screen slightly glitchy because of it.. Anyone else have this issue?
Can someone please answer my question : Is this Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra ZU680KL work with T-Mobile 4G LTE?
My Zenfone 3 Ultra has now updated to nougat and I can confirm it works really well. The OS is smooth and the phone is very responsive.
I had this phone for 4 months I love it but it just went blank 2 days ago. I had in the front pocket of my jeans and when I took it out it the screen went blank. I hate where the placed the on and off button. Very clumsy.

So far I haven't noticed anything different about this version.
The only complaint is that Google Play music won't play all of my tunes from my SD card. Not sure if it's a google play issue or Asus issue.
I put the SD Card in my Shield K1 tablet which also has Nougat and can play the songs I wasn't able to play on this unit.
I had to download another music app just to play those tunes.

I got this phone 2 weeks ago.
In short : battery and screen are amazing. Pretty decent performance, camera quite good to (some noise in low light, but ois really effective).
And don't worry about the size, it still fits in my pocket, after one week you won't notice the massive size anymore.
