i want clear about this i'm using ZE551ML 4gb RAM
Phone working very smooth compare to others like Lenovo/Micromax/Carbon/Lava/Vivo
as price it is little bit high as specification but not more per quality.
The Intel processor is great but take more battery. After 1.2 year i have to replace the battery.
Camera is good but in Low light or Night
Performance wise no one can delivery smooth like Intel it my Experience after using various phone have various processors Like Samsung/HTC/MI/OPPo/VIvo/Sony etc.
for Games honestly its good but not best
but for multi apps no can compare this.
So many complaints here @ this phone, I really wonder what you guys are doing with it if it's working as bad as you're complaining. I have mine since August 2015 and it's working great. Smooth as butter, battery life is decent and no problems while gaming. Upgraded it to Marshmallow a few months ago and I only saw improvements to it, battery life stayed the same. A very good phone for its times and it's still quite good even now, in Q1 2017.
ASUS phones are very bad phones, flickering issue is big issue, you cant any thing, I hate the asus
Was good until it wasn't. just died. I knew this going in, so I thought it would be an issue that was fixed. Don't buy and don't trust the Zenfone 3 either.
Very bad customer care center in Jakarta Indonesia. Don't buy Asus product.
If you can live with the added bulk of the device, the Intel chip inside is quite capable.
( same issue ) This phone really makes me sad, too many problems, ghost touches, broken buttons, bad battery life also bad service.
I have no big issue with My Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML... EXCEPT for the very annoying GHOST TOUCH on screen, which also happened to other users of Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML. I might not buy any ASUS phone anymore
NO, NO and NO.
I did that mistake to buy the phone for my mom as I tought a 65 years old women dont need the fastest and most powerfool smartphone.
All that she needs is a normal phone to run Viber, FB and take few snapshots, thats it !
Well this is too much for this phone, battery drops from 90 to 0, camera is freezing, need restart few times per day .... you are not buyng a phone, you are buying a problems!
AsusUser, 04 Jan 2017I bought new Asus phone that has already a broken screen. Not recommended.I just open my zenfone box and the phone is not powering on...?
phoe is full of problems , battery , touch suckz and so does it freezes
For the people who asking Marshmallow Update, download update manually from this site there is no OTA works fine without any problem and performance tweaks.
1.download this file :UL-Z00A-WW-184.108.40.206-user.zip.
2. paste it root directory of internal memory. not in downloads folder.
3. restart ur phone. u will get notification to update.
4. click Update, it will take nearly 20 to 30 mins.
it will work without any bugs and u will get a 75mb OTA update for security patch. and install it. thats all marshmallow is done
Not gonna buy any asus phone ever again, since this is my first ever smartphone i thought that this phone is quite cool with it's spec and it's a standard for a smartphone, after i change my phone to other products i just realized how stupid i was, lmao.
4 gb ram doesn't really matter, still slow, not optimized. new phone got 3 gb of ram, smooth like baby's butt.
intel proc just worse, well not the worst tho but still it suck.
playing multi games with friends, lag, my friend use samsung s4 and it's smooth as heck, really!!!??? at first i thought it was the matter of my internet connection but it seems that's not the case, my new phone can play it just fine.
i planned to bought zenfone 3 before but i changed my mind, i'm just glad that i'm not captivated with it's 'high spec' or else i'll regret it for years to come.
I don't know about zen 3 performance tho but i just hope that asus is not only showing it's 'superior' spec as their main selling point and turns out that the performace of their phone is a disaster.
dcduartee, 16 Jan 2017I bought the ze551ml (the one with 2.3ghz intel/4gb of ram) about 6 months ago and so far I am... moreI'm also thinking of getting this device but I'm getting the special edition one. Currently I have the S4, and after seeing the camera result of the Selfie I'm bit disappointed with the image taken with it. The photo was dark knowing the Selfie have a better camera spec compared to the S4. I must say the S4 have a better camera compared to the Selfie after viewing the photos in a laptop. So I'm still undecided if I should go and buy the Zenfone 2 Special Edition.
I bought the ze551ml (the one with 2.3ghz intel/4gb of ram) about 6 months ago and so far I am loving it. It is by far the best phone I've owned (my previous phone was the galaxy s4). It has great features. it runs smoothly and is very snappy. I used stock lp, then went to mm and now I'm on CM 14.1 running android 7.1.1 and I absolutely love it. Of course it has some problems, the battery could last longer and the camera, even though when it has light it works briliantly when it takes low light photos it lacks a bit of quality. Overall I think it is a really good phone and recommend people who are looking to buy this to do so
someone99, 06 Jan 2017The problem you had Marshmallow, what version of Marshmallow was it? And when did it start?
... moreThe problem with zf2 MM starts from many aspects, battery drain is the main one. It just drains too fast, 100 to 90 in a blink, when using LP can go almost twice the time.
I have to admit, many bad reviews, but the cause is not unknown : using heavy load tasks while using 9v fast charging. 80% chance u will damage the touchscreen and lcd.
No smartphone will survive 4 years, let alone the battery it self. Phones with fast charger have shorter lifespan. I predict this phone can go up to 2 years more max. Unless they kill Lollipop this year. Then bye bye zf2. MM really kills this phone. Trust my words.
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2017how you do reverse update from marshmallow to lollipop?download from asus official website and put it in your sd card. Will update it self. Because as an update version it is later than MM update, but the OS is LP. So the phone will recognize it as an update but actually a downgrade.
