I have purchased ASUS-Z008 model 1 year back.Use of direct speaker is not so much, even though speaker is completely not in condition to listen.I have shown to service station, they have told to replace it and cost is Rd 500 and it is not unavailable. So speaker quality is not somuch durable.And battery is going down very early
When connected to charger, WiFi automatically switches on/off and a pop-up "Networks and WiFi" opens up, EveryTime! how to sisable this?
well, its my first asus phone i using, and it not even brand new, i just bough it from local online shop, he has use it for 4 month since he need money to back to his hometown. i take a look, it not that bad, and still considering in perfect condition.
wipe, and factory reset it,i use it for 2 weeks, still lolipop and no root.i just instal few social media apk, since i isn't need it for gaming, i just install 1 game, just for killing time when im bored, even i kill auto start for all apk, except the os of course
when i restart it, and perform ram cleaning, it good, >1gb free
but the problem starting if i open 2 or 3 apk, fb,wa,etc
it eat all the ram just 400 or 500 free, or even if i clear all and open the game i install just 200 free, it isn't bad, still smooth and fast, but when i close an app i need to clear ram to free it, if i don't ram cleaning it still use half from what it use before.
then i realize, what the hell happend, i keep see notice that an app was updated, bloatware.
then i checked there around 40 bloatware, i ain't need all of those, after some tought i want to root it to remove the bloatware, and since i want to root, i just kinda like to update it to MM, so i search it in zen talk forum, i get the all the 'materials'. i flash it to MM (no online update when i check it), when i ugrade it to MM, the bloatware increasing, the more reason i need to root , i just get 800mb ram free even i not open anything, i root it, and remove all the bloatware, and it 'good' again >1,4 free ram,
in spite all the coment saying when upgrade to MM many problem appear, i don't get any errror at all, all sensor working, no sudden restart, no hang, (i don't use sim2, so i don't know bout it, but i think its fine to) i already used to take 'good' pic with this phone so that no prob at all. all perfect, smooth and fast, 'but' i can't move app to SD card like in Lolipop, but again it isn't really a problem.
it depend on the people how to treat their phone,
ps : if im bored with the ui, i might flash it with CM13 or 14.01 (i watch the video bout it yesterday) hahahah....

Good mobile phone, I am having problem with Camera, I am not getting clear pics. let me know resolution for clear pics.
if you are still looking to get this phone, I'd recommend you did't. In the case of my unit, the second SIM slot (2G only) can't be used for sending text messages even though it receives them; no major software updates over a year; 2nd SIM disconnects randomly; very poor reception and the screen is subpar.
On the good side, it performs well, has decent camera and audio quality through Google Music.
Harry9088, 07 Oct 2016Hi I still have lollipop 5.0 and works fine. Is it worth upgrading to to mm6.1 and what are... moreNo. Do not upgrade. MM is smooth and nice but it freezes frequently so you may not get good experience from it after update. Please stick with your lollipop or upgrade to CM13.
For all zenfone 2 users(Z00A/Z008). First of all i am congratulating everyone who have these phones in their hand. It is pretty good to use this phone. But i want to tell you something. Do not upgrade your phone to marshmallow os given by asus. It will kill your phone because you might have to hard shutdown your phone because it will freeze randomly and frequently. Actually i was a victim. I send many mail to asus regarding this problem but they told me that my phone's hardware might be wrong and gave all details to contact a customer care to repair my phone. But i was really confident because these all problems came after i upgraded to MM. Actually the look of MM was good and it was smooth. You even get more than 1gb in a 2gb model but those freezing ruined all my good experiences. So i decided to find a solution and i was not ready to give up MM. Then i found the real thing that have made my zen2 a beast. While searching, my eyes stuck on CYANOGENMOD13. I read everything about it and flash my phone with it (my first rooting and flashing).it was really good and smooth. I really want to inform you guys that do not stick on this O.S given by asus. They do not know how to make an O.S. Just try CM13. it have improved performance of my phone. I have checked it. My antutu score went from around 42000 to 53000( my phone is ze550ml). It is very smooth and you have all freedom in it. It is more than a month after i did that flash. Still no freeze.. No lag. Butter smooth. There are plenty of tutorials available in youtube and xda. You can check it. (For MM users:pls downgrade to lollipop then try to unlock the bootloader using official app given by asus otherwise you can not do it easily) and one more thing,Now there is CM14(android 7.1) is available so you can even upgrade to Naugut. Pls do not wait for asus. They never gonna make it.
Good budget performer but rear cam is terrible. Too much light glare with the rear camera.
Upgrade all apps to latest version. Change your battery mode to performance if it is in super saving.
