Babu, 09 Jul 2015How to update this phone??Since I have done it, I can show you how to update or install firmware on Zenfone 2: 1.) Visit the official support page Asus Zenfone 2 https://www.asus.com/in/Phones/ZenFone_2_ZE551ML/HelpDesk_Knowledge/ 2.) Go to "Drivers and Tools Section" select Android OS. 3.) Browse to Firmware section. Read the header carefully, WW is for Worldwide (including India), JP is for Japan, CN is for China and so on. 4.) If you want to install WW firmware, check out the latest WW version (which is "WW_22.214.171.124" at the time of writing). 5.) Download the ZIP file (1.1 GB) and save it on your PC. 6.) It is easy to install the ZIP file in your phone. Check this Support FAQ section from Asus: https://www.asus.com/in/support/FAQ/1009748/ Use the manual update button. 7.) Carefully note that to copy the ZIP files from PC into your phone, you need to install (a.) Intel and (b.) Asus USB Drivers. Only then windows will "see" your phone. To know how to install drivers, you can visit XDA developers site. Also, you must enable "USB Debugging" on your phone. This is easy, you can Google it. 8.) After installing the ZIP firmware, remember to delete the ZIP file from your phone's memory. You now have the latest firmware installed in your phone. Cheers and enjoy.

Zifnab, 08 Jul 2015"I had Asus zenfone 2 4gb ram 2.3ghz 64gb version and I have to admit I had nightmare usi... moreI agree with Zifnab. once upon a time intel processors consumed too much power while ARM chips used up less power. now the tables have turned. it is the new ARM/Snapdragon chips which are getting hotter (less battery life), while intel chips with x86 architecture are providing great clock speeds but with much reduced power consumption and higher battery life. asus has made the right choice in putting intel chips in this zenfone. superb performer. period.
who says zf2 battery lasts for 5 hours?
mine lasts for 2 whole days. just install the latest updates, mate
remember that chinese phone makers like Xiaomi, OnePlus, Meizu, etc. do not have external micro-sd card support
those who die over fingerprint scanners and other fancy stuff must consider this basic fact in their calculation
ultimately, external memory card matters a lot in a phone
Bibin, 08 Jul 2015Hi i like this phone . But i am confused ... its good or bad pls help me I recommend zenfone 2 4gb ram, 2.3 ghz for you. It's make me very satisfy and happy!!. Gaming performance is very impressive!!. The battery not drain fast. I played a heavy game like modern combat 5 for almost 4 hours start from 100% battery.

Zifnab, 08 Jul 2015"I had Asus zenfone 2 4gb ram 2.3ghz 64gb version and I have to admit I had nightmare usi... moreJust a precision about the "Snapdragon 810 v2.1". OnePlus says that they are a new version (2.1) for their phone but Qualcomm said "No". So... who lies?

Just do the last updates (firmware and software) or sell it and buy the OnePlus 2.
"Snapdragon 810 v2.o has been tweaked soo no more heating issue". Problem: it doesn't exist a 810v2. It's just a tweak which decrease the performance of the CPU when it's too... hot.
"Intel is way too far from ARM architecture and it has few developers support so think twice and thrice". Totally wrong... There is no more issue with x86 vs ARM architecture except to the (very) old applications.
Could you please tell me if Asus zenfone 2 is good performace wise, quality, application, speed wise.

Anyways it's upto to u guys wat you want soo do wat is best which fits on ur preferences peace... :)

You won't be able to tell the difference between types of memory. Finger printer scanner is good, but not really needed. The audio output is reportedly much better on ZF2. I hhave read where heat issues on 810 have been addressed by throttling. I question your blanket dismissal of ZF2.
Zifnab, 08 Jul 2015OnePlus 2 will be probably better in performance than the Zenfone 2 but... Zenfone 2 (4G/32GB)... moreYes Asus zenfone 2 is 299$ bt people won't hesitate to invest 100$ more for oneplus 2 coz they get fingerprint scanner 4gb ddr4 ram compared to 4gb ddr3 ram in zenfone 2 also improved version of snapdragon 810 version 2 and metal build quality which will 1000 times ahead of Asus zenfone 2 n custom version of Android(oxygen os) which is best till date so I still strongly recommend all of you to keep calm n wait for oneplus 2..... :)
