Anonymous, 10 Mar 2018Can someone tell me how to downgrade to Lollipop? Camera got worse on Marshmallow.isnt every phone is like that? there's a sensor in the upperleft of the phone that detects when your ear is close to thephone, it will turn ur screen black
Rajsekar, 28 Jun 2018I Bought a new model phone from Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551M & when i try to switch on the phone... moreHold Volume Up button and press Start button together for 7-10 seconds (If Volume Up button doesn't work, try Volume Down button with Start). Phone will restart. This happens when phone crashed and needs to reboot in safe mode.
I've been using this phone since 2015. I used to play games a lot when I first bought it. Nowadays I just use it to call my friends and watch youtube videos. It's a good phone but it has a lot of problems. Here is some of them:
-SIM card reader had to be repaired at least 5 times.
-Gets really hot when playing heavy games like Asphalt 8 or GTA San Andreas
-Plastic shell changes color and cracks due to heat
-At some point it started turning off while in my pocket. It wouldn't turn on for 4-5 hours so I had to get it repaired again.
-Sometimes screen starts flickering but it goes away when I restart the phone.
Good sides: The performance is good and the camera is pretty good. It can take great photos in dark places.
Would I buy this phone again? No I don't think so. I would probably get a Motorola phone or maybe a Nokia phone. Or maybe a second hand Google Pixel.
the phone is preety decent for money but not so good..mine has problem with sim card reader and charging issue...once is needing update the phone it become useless after a while
I Bought a new model phone from Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551M & when i try to switch on the phone it was not getting on. kindly provide guidlines immediately.
in my opinion, This phone has many features, unique ones really. the battery is kind of shitty, but charge really fast (60% in less than 30 mins), the camera is also decent, not good, not bad though.. the performance is fascinating I think, although it heats up pretty fast when losing signals or playing games (PUBG, Asphalt 8). Overall, this is a nice phone, I've been using it for like 2 years, no problem occurs to me..
I have issues with screen flickering. I tried to reset (BIOS way) but I couldn't. Any help??
The phone has lasted over 3 years without screen broken or anything big, the battery still lasts but better to swap it. Phone lasts but very expensive as well.
I am using this phone for close to 3 years now. A powerful performance device with worst build quality, and poor screen.
It has never lagged, got hung a few times due to network(data) unavailability.
It heats up real quick if you are playing online or heavy offline games.
After 2 years Battery performance goes down significantly low.
ASUS has already stopped providing updates for this model.
There is Lineage OS available for this model. I would recommend using that for better life of the phone.
The Build Quality is worst though. The Screen is not as good as expected, and Camera does not seem to perform well under low light conditions.
Hsp, 14 Jan 2018Final Lollipop for the best perform z2.. can u give me the link update
Great phone ! Highly recommend, based on my own experience. Had it for three years now,
and it has never failed me. The only thing I would change is the plastic body - my next phone will definitely be an ASUS , with a metal shell.
Lasted 2 years with me. It has a great performance for its price but the durability of its part is questionable. 1st, the front cam stopped working, 2nd the power button plastic chipped off, and 3rd, the charger doesn't charge the phone properly.
Yeng, 15 May 2018What do you think is the best and fast charger for zenfone.I've tried my friend's Samsung S7 charger and it charged really fast compared to my generic charger that I bought from a local store
Do not recommend.
After 1 year it stopped working. The phone turns itself off in out of the blue. Low durability for its price.
However it has a great performance in its processor, depending on what you use the phone for.
I had mine for over 2 years. No problems at all. Great cell phone for a very reasonable. Depending on the use, battery can last up to 3 days which is a lot more than many other (More expensive) phones. Unlike many others, it has dual SIM and a dedicated memory card slot (Which means that you can use 2 different lines AND a microSD at the same time. Many will share the slot between second line and memory card). Android customizations are great (Unlike LG for example). It includes many useful proprietary Apps. I'd choose this phone over my company-supplied LG G5 (Unusable without a Drawer-App) every time. I spilled water on it (Several times actually) and never had any problem. Complains about it are ridiculous. If you can't keep your cell phone out of the toiled, the problem is not the cell phone...
