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...
annoyed, 09 May 2018this phone sucks... i'm very careful with my phone for more than a year i don't even drop it o... moreI have my Zenfone 2 since february 2016, and it's still working as charm... Don't blame ASUS or Zenfone 2 for your particular problem...
this phone sucks... i'm very careful with my phone for more than a year i don't even drop it or even spill water on it. just this afternoon. my phone got problem with the lcd. i can hardly read the txt or letter. ASUS your sucks!!! never buy this phone again...
A decent phone for the price. Battery will last all day if you are not a rabid user. Volume button placement was annoying. Not water replant, at all. Baby slobbered a bit on the phone & it started being wonky. Decent as a teens phone or back up since its now 3 years old.
Never never buy it. My zenfon2 was broken. I could not get it repaired even by paying. Mainboard is very bad
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2018Can someone tell me how to downgrade to Lollipop? Camera got worse on Marshmallow.You can do that...just go to Asus office website and you'll have a list of all firmwares for Asus Zenfone 2 ze551ml...there you'll find a download link..but the process is a bit complicated because you'll have to connect to a PC...search on YouTube..many vids are there!
jeffo, 05 Mar 2018Love the Zenfone 2.ZE551ML...but why when I answer a call the screen goes black...then have di... moreyou got proximity sensor problem, if you still have warranty, you can take it to service center for replacing the proximity or they can replace with new mainboard.
Dj 471, 26 Mar 2018You are absolutely right about ghost touch's problem make me mad.Most problem in Zen2 was ghost touch, if you still have warranty, you can claim for repair.
