juz 3 months after bought this pnone,my google apps crashed twice..regret buying this phone..
guys ive been using this fone for 1 year now. so far, camera is not so bad. battery depends on how u use ur fone. hang sometimes. but i tell u guys, it's still alive and kicking! i even dropped it many times. so i recommend this fone which is a cheaper one. hehe
I use this phone for more than a year. Let me share with you my opinion.
- umm .. maybe design?
- heating, i can make popcorn using it
- gps, you will surely die using it deep in the forest
- updates. Promised L update for july 2015, a year passed .. did you guys forget?
- weight - its pretty heavy comparing with other smartphones
- camera pretty good for a potato not camera.
Should you buy this phone? No. Don't eat for two weeks and buy something better. Trust me.
lalli, 19 Jul 2016Ofter update my phone led flash light not workingyeah we're hve a same prblem. looks like it is a global problem, i believe that is cause by the latest update. just keep monitor for the new update, because my led work again at now, but sometime. lol
why u guys so hate on this phone. its too much benefit that we could get from it. one of them mostly if it is starting to get extremely heating, i would use it to iron my clothe. it is energy saver for ur home right? so, now! say no to clothe iron. because we have asus zenfone c(lothe) iron. lol
Hey guys don't waste your money on this phone Asus zenfone C its waste phone. Its battery drains Fast and this phone heat up everytime. While using chrome it stop music player.
Used it for 4 months, I give it 6.5/10, it has very poor camera, restarting quite often, heating, locking screen. I would prefer zenfone 4 which I bought 2 yrs ago and still love it, only problem is it doesn't have LED flash, and slow data rate but works quite fine.
In my words this is the worse mobile phone....many problems like hanging,heating etc. Many facts are there in this mobile don't bye this.

I don't know if that still available today.
Please dont buy this phone. Waste of money, too hanging,heating, this phone is very bad.please dont buy this model of asus .shame for asus
chetn, 11 Jun 2016It's been a year I am using this phone. Neglecting camera n 4gb internal the phone is good n w... morei have a solution for this.
yes, as a fellow Zenfone C user i experience this sorta trouble
still, its $96 phone. that is what happen when you buy something too cheap
what i did is
1st, upgrade your firmware to latest version
2nd, root it
3rd, get a really good SD Card (16GB Class 10 Recommended)
4th, Delete any bloatwares (this method save space and ram. also extended battery life)
5th, Install LSpeed (this can be pretty risky tho, but it's all worth it)
6th, Un Install any app that you don't need anymore
7th, Install Link2SD (this is so you can install so many apps on your phone)
8th, Install GL2SD (for gaming - move huge files to SD card. this works too well i had Asphalt 8, RR3, MC5 in this POS but, if you're resetting it download the big chunks first)
9th, enable developer option and set background process to "No Backgroud Process"
10th, Frequently Restart the phone (once in 2 days?)
For the camera, well i'm sorry the camera is actually pretty decent but it took bad pictures indoors. i hope this helps a lot.
HERES A TIP FOR ZEN C USERS
as you can see, my phone is actually pretty battery consuming (duh thats what everyone said at the comments) so, the solution is that try using nova launcher instead of a freakin zenUI launcher
Why did i do that? because its been a long time since i used the zenUI launcher and when i used it, the battery goes whoosh from 99% to 98% for like, under than 2 minutes
So, the conclusion is, the launcher itself is the power consumer and i would advice to disable Clean Master (i did disable it) and Google Play Service .
For all the peoples that want to buy this phone, its up to you guys
astronou7, 14 Jun 2016im sorry, but how could we update and download the apps without playstore?1mobilemarket, if it is still available does not have all apps.

yash89, 23 May 2016Hello everyone.....Edison 657 is an awesome guy...By listening his advice and disabling google... moreIt's been a year I am using this phone. Neglecting camera n 4gb internal the phone is good n worthy the price. But asus should not compromise for such imp features though.
Now the problems that my phone is showing are:
1) heating issue
3) camera saturation
4) apps not responding many times
5) screen blackouts
Heating issue can be solved by uninstalling unwanted apps. Lagging too can be solved by resetting the device. When I regularly update app, the app not responding is also eliminated. But what broke my patience is blackouts. I used to play coc like for hours I can't count. N now I am not able to play it more than 5 mints. Also my keyboard is lagging. Wtf?? N camera saturation just f#@@d my life. Its has very poor front camera. I don't even understand its good to not a give a camera rather than ggivinga VGA. I mean what is the purpose of VGA nowadays. So I used to rely on rear camera only but now its also sucking. Although I can make video crisp n nice then why can't a photo?
Also if I open camera n take my first click with flash, the phone hangs n I have to restart the phone..!!! Plz guys if you have any solutions on this reply me..!!
this phone is nice but they haven't rolled out to lollipop itself..
Hello everyone.....Edison 657 is an awesome guy...By listening his advice and disabling google play store and googleplay services... The phone is working very nice... No lags, No heating and iam getting excellent battery backup....
Now Iam understanding that google play store and play services are the main draw backs for this phone's battery and performance
You can also extend the phone's battery by using default power saving mode
Once again Thanks to Edison 657....You just rock.....
