Hi. may I know how bad it is? what is the aperture of each of the camera?
My review after 6 months using this phone
# Good performance, works fast open any app
# Fast multitasking
# Good battery life (est. 4h on continous usage (browsing))
# Touch responsive run smoothly
# Camera becomes poor, blurry photos, not impressive as first time using it *
# Ghost touches
# Not a massive performance for gaming, can't run a too excessive & high graphic gaming
"*" denotes a problem that detected after updating for Android L to Android M
Good for multimedia, completing tasks on our daily life, but not suitable for gaming and photography

Besides, its official from ASUS.
Choose Android and then Firmware, from there choose the LATEST file according to your device's type/model.
READ THE MANUAL PROVIDED ON THAT WEBSITE AND
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE WRONG VERSION, AS IT WILL BRICK YOUR DEVICE.

Anonymous, 09 May 2017I want software update from lollypop to marshmallow pls sirhttps://www.asus.com/zentalk/ph/thread-98381-1-1.html
i had nexus 7 and zenfone 2. what a bummer. asus is good with pc motherboard.
not a phone and tablet computer.
Been using this phone since Sept 2015. Overall experience: it was a great phone. Recently, it started switching off by itself. Like when I try to send a message or open apps like fb, ig, etc. Screen would freeze then it'll turn off. Sometimes it turns off even when it's just on standby! And it would take long to switch on. Drains a lot of battery. Not even using my phone heavily. Plus Asus hasn't released OTA update for marshmallow.
I'm planning on buying a new phone because of those.
Great phone... i'm using it about 1 years.. Fast, full customize UI.. help my multitasking work...
anon, 01 May 2017You should go to the asus official central service in ur area or country and ask them to chang... moreFYI, I already been there. I live in Taiwan, ASUS is from Taiwan mind you. And the customer service there only said "It's Zenfone 2 biggest flaw". People like you should stop defending ASUS. ASUS is a bad phone company, even Taiwanese regret after buying Zenfone 2. It's only good to use for few months, after that there will be a lot of bugs. I even called to the center call, talking using Chinese and they just "Nothing we can do except changing it again." I won't pay them anything. It's their own fault to make bad phone!
Mine started random shut down now after a year. Last night, I made a phone call, and it shut down by itself, battery = 92%, when I turn it on again, the battery become = 73%. I really want to throw this piece of **** into the ocean. I will not buy anything with ASUS brand again. Good job for making useless garbage, ASUS.
All in all it's a good phone, but mobile network connection issue lower its value very very much >: (
Despite good reception, people calling me hear that I'm offline or switched off, or faulty connection, etc. Some friends think that I added them to a blacklist ))
You may google it, if you want, there is enough discussions of this problem. And it doesn't depend on your country nor provider.
Shamefully Asus doesn't bother with fixing this, which is main factor for avoiding this brand next time.

I bought this phone in May 2015, so I've had it for 2 years. This has been an amazingly great phone, for an amazing price. Like any electronics, sometimes you get a lemon. I've had absolutely no issues with this phone, the battery is still holding a charge for a long time. I use the phone a lot for Internet stuff like Facebook, Instagram, e-mails, map, music and pictures, plus texting. Very little for, you know, talking.
Some of the pictures I've taken with this phone were quite fantastic and impressive.
The stock Android wasn't great, it was painful to get Marshmallow, but since then it's been an even better phone. I use the Google launcher, not the ZenUI, and that made the whole experience even nicer and smoother.
After 2 years, I'm tired of the curved back, I want something slimmer and more stylish. Yes, this is all plastics but you know what, it doesn't feel cheap, and it doesn't break just looking at it... like those with glass backs (ZenFone 3?)...
Do not buy this phone, while it provided a lot of power (as of 2016), it is all plastic. Within months, speaker failed, power button soldered onto mainboard failed. Poor quality.
Bought that phone because it has dual sim, large screen, and Asus is a famous company for computer hardware. It's totally wrong.
After used for few months, problems issued (1) Phone halted almost everyday, (2) Phone suddenly turn offed. (3) Although it's dual sim, the second sim only has 2g. If you are using AT&T 2g network has been shut down, it's useless.
Search on Google, you will found problems (1) and (2) on that phone.
Never buy any cell phone from Asus again.

My dad have a same issue too before. First service only stays for 2 days and the issue came back and then he toss his phone until it went black and send it to the bigger official central service, he tell them to change everything that seems error because he just bought it for 2 months. Now everything's nice and fine
