I am using the quad core variant with 2Gigs of RAM.
The highlight of the handset is the battery life. It packs enough juice to give you a day and half with moderate to high usage. Besides that, the camera app, and the camera itself are really amazing, especially who like doing casual photography and know how to control camera manually. You can manually control focus, exposure, ISO, white balance and shutter lag (upto 32 seconds) which can take photos in pitch dark environment (without the need of going in low light mode). It can play casual games like NFS Most wanted, asphalt 8, Real racing 3 without any noticeable lags. Also display is too good (not as good as amoled though), however better than most of the phones below 25k. PPI is low, however i bet you'll not notice it. Thanks to the display quality. Also ZENUI is really one of the amazing UI I've ever used. It's too snappy, and pack features like app lock, app hide, and can customize almost everything in it (scroll effects, font, font size, background transparency. icon pack, icon size to name a few). Also it has built in apps to control notification, background data, and auto start. Yes it does have bloatware, however it can be uninstalled. Other apps i found useful.
You get around 10.6 gigs of internal memory free. I have around 156 apps installed in my handset, and on an average, I get 500 - 800 mb ram free.
Well that's all about the pros. The only con that I've realized was the audio wizard app. It initially delivered an awful audio quality. However the issue was solved in an update.
Asus seem to take care of it's customers, and therefore provide updates almost every week.
Also it does have gorilla glass 4, however it does get scratches if scratched hard enough (after all it's a glass and not some magical element). Use of tempered glass / screen guard thus is strongly recommended, however please make sure that the tempered glass / screen guard has a hole for proximity sensor otherwise the screen will go blank while on call, and double tap to sleep / wake will not work.
Hope the overview is helpful. Thanks,
Anonymous, 01 Jan 2016Can this phone handle fifa 16 ?Haven't tried yet but since it can handle graphic intense games like aspahlt 8 i think FIFA would and should work fine
Rahul, 01 Jan 2016should i buy the 3gb ram model or is the 2gb one enough? how's the battery,UI and camera?UI and camera are both same on both 2gb and 3gram. However performance would be better on the 3gb ram. Which means good multitasking and lag free gaming
should i buy the 3gb ram model or is the 2gb one enough?
