asus zenfone 2 laser volte 4g not calling not supported .....
Last year in November I bought ASUS ZenFone 2 laser & still I hadn't faced any problem....
Except that I don't know how to use laser...
Can anyone tell me....?
+Great phone for value
+Nice display 720P
+Very fluid, not iPhone fluid but definitely doesn't stutter even at heavy use
+Dual Sim is definitely useful and you can use both slots at 4G
+Full use of MicroSD slot (not hybrid sim slot)
+Fast charging, full battery charge in less than 2 hours
-Despite it being known for its laser picture taking, has poor image stabilization.
-Weak battery, after reading reviews about long lasting battery unfortunately, its not the case if you're a heavy user. At low brightness I get about 3-5 hours.
-Brightness is dim if you work in sunlight or work in the sun, this pbone may not work for you.
-Asus UI, not that useful
-Too much Asus bloatware
-Problems with Spotify not using the MicroSD storage
-Network issues with dual sims (connection drops, data connection is poor, not able to make calls)
Asus UI - install Google launcher or a custom ROM (Asus laser is compatible with Cyonogenmod)
Bloatware - Update your phone first. The latest update allows you to uninstall or disable bloatware. Very useful as it can eat up GB.
Spotify - Work around for MicroSD problem, you can not move Spotify to the onboard storage. However you can save your cache and DL songs to your microSD as long as your MicroSD is bigger than your current onboard storage. Example you own a 16GB phone but MicroSD has 32GB on it. If that doesn't work DL songs using best quality in Spotify wi trick it to use where there is a higher storage (typically the SD card).
Network Issue - Asus has a known issue regarding previously cut nano sims being used in either sim slot, either you cant use data or voice from that sim. Although Ive had no issue doing this on any other Android phone. Answer is to use a sim adapter or use one sim slot for your data, and one for voice (but that can be costly). Sim adapter seemed to do the trick.
It takes some time, but with a little work and a little TLC this phone can be a great alternative to a flagship device or an awesome replacement phone.
I bought this phone and my impression, after weeks of usage, is that ASUS really respects it's customers. It's about RESPECT... and with this phone ASUS really gives us more than we expected and this is how I want to be treated.
After powering up, I immediately received two updates. I applied them and I've factory reset the phone.
This means I started using it clean. I found no bugs, the software seems well tested and it's fast, no lags.
The GPS works great, the battery lasts for about 3-4 days with my usage (occasional texting, browsing for about 0.5 to 1 hour, talking about 1 hour, etc), the sound is great, the default apps can be disabled and even deleted (but I recommend try them for a few days and see that they offer a lot, with no ads)
The screens shows really nice contrast and colours and, physically, is coated with an oleophobic layer and really does the trick. Each time I pull this from my pocket it's shiny and clean, no grease or fingerprints whatsoever!
The camera is also great, fast focusing, really nice colours, very good low light performance.
So... yeah.... for this price (I payed about 200 Euros) this is a bargain and you won't find better.
AnonD-499571, 11 Feb 2016just purchased my asus laser phone last december 2015, experiences with this phone was ok, but... moreI received two updates, one after another, after powering up this phone.
This allowed me to Factory Reset it immediately after applying the updates.
I experienced no problems with it since. So... even if it will take a bit of time to install your apps, make sure you backup and then factory reset. It will surely solve your issues with the phone.
just purchased my asus laser phone last december 2015, experiences with this phone was ok, but sometimes I don't even understand why it automatically shuts down randomly and opens after 2minutes. I dont even know if this is a part of system update. But sometimes, its a hassle even when Im browsing the net or opening an app. This happens. What is supposed to be the problem?
