Bought this about a year ago. Works fine until the memory fills up (which happens really fast).
After that, it becomes the worse phone I have ever owned. The screen becomes unusable, iti s impossible to answer calls or chat, typing stops working.
Had to remove almost all my apps except 3 in order to get it to work.
Have many phones before, but none is as bad as this one. And the fact that is impossible to move apps to flash card, makes this phone almost unusable for anything other than simple calls and internet browsing.
i've had a good experience for the first year of experience I really liked the asus UI now the phone is really broken and I want to buy a new asus phone but im scared it might happened again because as I searched for solutions Ive seen a lot of complains like this in the asus products.
i've been using it for more than a year now, my first problem started for the first 3 months i had a problem with the flash light it wont flicker anymore but it can stay on. I dont gave much attention to it.
then after using for 1 year and 2 months i had a problem with the screen, there is a dead touch horizontally at the bottom middle part of the screen i didn't fall or anything it just happened. I tried to hard factory reset but it didn't worked.
3 weeks later I accidentally fell the screen and it had cracks but the display is still fine no dead pixels, after a week it had ghost touches after a week i cant use the home anymore nor the back and recent apps.
I have been using this phone for 1 and half years. No problem at all....I played and continuing play coc and royale and never over drain. Wow it is simply performed better....
bathoks, 13 Mar 2017pretty okay at first year..as warranty ends and next few months later, first problem comes..ch... moreThe same happened to me with the charge... my phone has almost 1 year and 3 months and 3 weeks ago started to have charging problems (I have to turn off my phone)... I made a Hard Reset to "Solve" the issue and nothing... but sometimes my Asus charge normaly (Turned on)... I think is a Sofware problem... but such a coincidense that happened to you after the year, same like me. maybe Asus trying to make the phone obsolete? but the phone is still good for use
pretty okay at first year..as warranty ends and next few months later, first problem comes..charging problem..the phone charging only when it's switched off and the battery drained faster than usual..come one asus..I've read a lot of review about charging problem in youtube & no solution at all..but, I keep my patience for a months..and yesterday, problem became worse..it's seem like software problem..idk..I can took picture, open music player and so on..after I tried to backup photos at google photo, I've reset (power button + volume down) my phone, clear user data and reboot...guess what happen??...the screen shows the asus logo and stuck there...f**k...I can even open my phone again..
If you can't installing facebook app in your asus, you should change the memory installed instead to phone memory. Try it, it's work... I done...
Well, i've used this phone brand for about 6month. Everything fine, and i'm satisfied with everything.
I'm a gamer, this phone can support my 10 fav game with larger mB.. No problem with that. Suddenly,my phone cannot detect or read sim card, no network coverage, and i cannot turn on my phone normally. Keep on shutting down, restart, then shutting down again, restart. Gosh! Its suck. I dont know the reason why. i've sent it to asus centre and fix it twice. But still, they fix its temporary and problem happen again. I'm traumatize to used this brand. Its u to figure it out now.. Thank u
This cheap midrange fone behaves similary to the flagships and screen is very good in this price range (I can't give exellent for not high bright level). Camera is worse than SGS 2+ 8 MPix camera but better than Marshall 8MPix camera (in ten-ball system I give to Marshall 4,8 points, to 500KG 7,4 and to SGS 2+, SonyEricsson C 905 and Nokia 808 PV in 8 MPix mode 9,6 points). Led flash is impressively strong and usable in dark. Cheap phones with 8 MPix not in range with nothing. I got 500KG for 168 Â€ and for this I'm very satisfied.
I have been using this phone(Asus Zenfone 2 Laser ZE500KG) for last 2 months . Being a mid-range device i have to admit it got a solid build quality . The screen is good considering the price , its quite bright . With 2GB ram its okey for day to day use . But internal storage is not sufficient despite being 16GB I was surprise to find only 9 gb avaliable...!!!!!
The front camera is better than Rare camera . Loud Speaker is not good
Headphone sound quality is simply Awesome.
Overall for those who have tight budget for them its a great option......

hmm.. my friend has galaxy j5 and he envy with my asus ze500kg's camera. my phone's camera resulting good and crisp picture. and his j5 camera are blurry even with bright outdoor light.
if you doesn't agree with me just compare both phone yourself :)
The Focus is amazing but the camera quality make it useless.
its fail to compete with Xiaomi camera.
The camera has advantages in very good light bcus the color are so accurate but in low light. or indoor seriously useless.

I have read your opinion, which i thought for a while that is this person is really talking about Asus zenphone 2 laser. well an opinion varies from person to person.. I think this is a standard phone within the budget.
And a another fact is that i have compared to other devices and it is really up to the mark with other flagship smart phones. You also have to see the price before looking at the stats and also wither a person is a Walton or a Symphony fan or not . :D
i am using this phone,one of the f**king phone from asus...you should not buy this phone becasuse of these reasons :
1. worst camera i ever seen,lots of noise & camera feature doesn't work properly as they show it at there website.
2. battery is too poor & charge drained so fast.
3. when use use any apps phone getting hot even if you browse net it will hot.
4. display is too bad.
5. some popular apps u can't install in this phone like when i m installing facebook app from play store after downloading instead of installing phn restart.
6. laser auto focus is only for show doesn't work as they write on there website
i have used many phones,every phone has its bad side & good side bt this is the worst phone ever i have seen...so don't buy asus zenfone 2 laser ze500kg
