Kenchi, 08 May 2020Why does it’s so lagYes, it is very laggy device.
I dropped my phone in toilet bowl last time,not then put into rice and it function again
I like this phone's camera(especially front haha)
I used for 2years then let my mom use for a bout 1 Year.
Lastly, my bro dropped it into toilet second time
Then it never wake up again
Rip but thank you for accompanying me
Using everyday since 2015, almost no problem and going strong. Good job Asus (y)
I m this phone user..very miss every moment since the first time of use..the phone are light compared to phone nowadays..
Just upgraded to Marshmallow on my ZE500KL and it looks good. No issues except for some heavy apps like Line and wechat need to reside in internal memory. I enable adoptable storage where my internal and microSD card were combined as one... so it works like App2SD. My microSD is a Kingston 64GB with 90MB/s Read and 80MB/s Write so if you buy a lesser microSD, your mileage will suck !
I factory reset, upgraded to Marshmallow via official firmware download since FOTA was not working, wipe cache and everything works well. It has been 3 weeks now with no issues.
Enabling Adoptable Storage is a bit more tedious but there are complete guides online. Because Asus did not enable Adoptable Storage by default, formatting the microSD card stops at 20% follow by a pop up error but there was no issues with usage. After the error, I exit and restarted my phone and the storage appeared. I can transfer files via USB to the storage with no issues. RAM usage is about the same.
Battery life is good and WiFi have no issues.
The biggest pain was my customization and data restoration were not seemless..not sure what happened but I have to restore them manually.
I should have done this earlier rather than believe all the hype that Marshmallow was problematic for my phone model.
Looks like those with the 5" ZE500KL/KG are the only survivors for this model. The other sizes have well know SOC heating issues. So if you have other than the 5" ZE500KL/KG, there is no escape due to the SOC.
have this for 3yrs now, omg, im so loyal, hello asus zenfone any loyalty award? hahaha
it served its purpose, i now need to get a new one. battery drains so fast, limited apps but cameta is superb!!!
within 6 months was like 6 month of headache though the phone is nice but gone now
user, 03 Aug 2018how to change back tu android 5.0.. android 6.0 make my phone lagNo way.
AnonD-730889, 15 Jan 2018Don't upgrade to Marshmallow. It has a bug such as proximity sensors and gestures motion.really no wonder it keep lagging. use for 2 years already but the phone gone now. need to buy new phone
When I switch on mobile data or wifi after few seconds the phone overheating?Another problem is battery drain fast?Please help me.Thank you!
The phone's camera is super.I love this camera.
Using this phone almost 2 years, good phone by price.
But there are few bad things:
1. GPS is so unresponsive that there is no connection using maps apps (example: waze).
2. Can't remove or even disable facebook background service app (need to root to do that)
3. Need to disable all bloatware what comes to it if whant to use with less lags.
4. Not possible to get full 4G speed. (Using the same SIM in blackberry q10 or Motorola G5 4G is working with bigger speed)
But if not taking these things, it is some good daily phone by price.
After two years of loyal service, i´´ll finally change to a moto g5s.
Great phone, decent specs and overall good experience.
the only downsides is batery backup, and wifi reception (quite poor) and usual ton of bloatware from Asus.
