Been using it for almost two weeks now and overall, I'm quite happy to have bought this phone. There were no overheating issues even when I played temple run for two hours straight. Also, kudos to the asus team for issuing firmware upgrades regularly. After buying it, you should update it's firmware and in built apps. That's going to make your experiemce so much better
Getting to the point, battery life is good, os more user friendly than stock android 1.4 gb ram is always consumed (i got 2 gb ram) but still i never found any issues related to system getting slower and there is no overheating issue. But the major issue is, if you restart your phone with external sd card inside, this device wont be able to load Os, it will get stuck on loading screen. To solve this, i had to remove external sd card, only then i could go further. It is not enough, now this device wont be able to work with that sd card, it will say "preparing external storage" and then nothing happens. To overcome this issue, you have to format your external sd card then it will be readable again. If anyone other than me has ever encountered same problem, remember to remove external sd card safely before you restart your device
i Love to buy this mobile so frnds give me ur suggestions plzzzzz......
I'am having problem with this phone for it's NFC, it doesn't work with any phone whether sending or receiving photos or anything. When i try to tap this phone with my friend's sony Z3, there is only a beep sound, and it doesn't notify my anything. Anyone having the same problem?
Hi Fellas, i am planning to buy this model after going through the specifications. But when i went through the reviews i found out most of the people are facing the less battery and over heating issues. Pls suggest guys whether i should go with it or not..?
The reviews are stupid. I had mine, the battery life is reliable. I can play coc 4-5hrs straight without charging mine. I don't oftenly use the camera but i have friends who loves taking photos and they think that asus zenfone 2's camera is amazing. Overheating is natural to all smartphones. What, are u expecting your phone to cool down while you're doing a multitask? Stupid, reviews are stupid.
I use this smartphone since four days ago.
Overall satisfy for me. With a very reasonable price.
About the battery is said to be wasteful, it is always an issue almost all smartphones.
hopefully new firmware update is getting better and better.
The best version of asus is the zenfon2. Incomparable to the latest versions. I hope the company will make a 7gb ram and 20 gb internal storage unit... I am very willing to purchase it.
Asus zenfone 2 4gb ram really spoiled my full exitment to use a new mobile. Battery life is very worst, mobile is getting more while charging or while using, sometimes Ui issues are coming please some one sujjest me what i have to do now to extend battery life please....
Thanks in advance
[deleted post]so do you recommend the asus zenfone 2 or not. what did u do for the viberator?
Guys.. I think the Android OS is the main reason of having some problems with some phones.. not the phone itself.. because I read a lots of comments and opinions here @ GSMARENA.. i always see that if the phone is on Android 4.4.4 KITKAT it has a problem with Heating the backpanel, battery life drains fast, camera is weird but when they update it to Android lollipop the heating issue, battery issue and camera issue is gone.. but there will be a bugs with different parts of the device..
I purchased an asus zenfone 2 4gb 32gb variant, the problem i am facing is, when i turned my phone for the first time there was no vibrating feed back while booting, but i did't gave it that importance but latter i found that the vibrator of my phone is not working, when there is a call it won't vibrate even though the phone was in vibrating mode. Is this a software issue or a hardware issue?
I even updated the phone software but its still not working. I was in love with this beauty but i think i will have to return this product as it is faulty.
Then while charging the phone and the charger both gets heated up really high, some time the phone will heat up on its own when i won't be doing anything with it. While using camera it will heat up. The camera portion of the phone heats the most.
There is a serious deficiency in zenfone2, that has never been mentioned in the descriptions...
only after owning the phone, a 2GB-RAM version, i get to know that only one of the two sim slot supports data network services...THE SECOND SIM DOES NOT!! Strangely, on opening the back of the phone, i find 2G wreitten beside the second sim slot. Really puzzling and moreover, disappointing !!
My asus zenfone 2 was pretty good till a week from the purchase. Now it started giving trouble. Its getting restarted on itself several times like apprx 10 times a day. It hangs/ freezes while multitasking (managing conference call, performing 2 or more activities at the same time like music and texting, or music and surfing, texting and surfing)
And overheating problem too.i complained to flipkart and they offered me handset replacement but what if that repeats with the new one too? Please help me out i hate this phone
sree jith, 24 Jul 2015am bit confused whether to buy zenfone 2 (2gb ram) or lenovo k3 note...pls hlp me...Wait till next week more zenfones Moto g3 and j7 will be available 😊
