Judging the tremendous comment over here, many people do own this phone, but get let down by lot of issue.
I do believe those issues are true. I do own some smartphone, be it high end or low end, it do have issue.
Instead of complain and seeking solution here, I advise to consult ASUS service center, get it fix by repair, or exchange for new unit.
If camera quality, speaker sound level, screen brightness, battery life are your main concern, then don't buy this phone. You can test out those in store before buying.
Not bashing Zenfone 2 either, and not biased to support other brand, but rather buy a phone that you are happy with. Choices are plenty, with more and more high end budget friendly phone crowding the segment.

Teli vishal , 16 Jun 2015ALL D BEST to those who didn't BUY ZENF 2 ZE551ML..... hey dude if u face such issue reltd to... moreWell it is true that there are more better cheap phones out there in terms on the camera quality over the zf2 but my point here is that the whole opinions here on this phone is all about how bad is the camera and like there's nothing more in it. Not all users need a superb camera on their phone, others are more into the performance on how they can maximize work on their phones and this is what this phone is going to offer.
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2015Can you suggest me that which phone is better 1.Asus zenfone 2 (4gb ram) 2.htc desire 826 3.G... moreZenfone 2 is the most performant (CPU / GPU / RAM). HTC 826 and Samsung A7 use the same CPU / GPU which is really good too, but the A7 is most expensive than 826. However the HTC 826 has a lower battery (but dual sim).
Same screen size and resolution for each phone. So in my mind, the ranking should be: 1. Zenfone 2, 2. Samsung A7, 3. HTC Desire 826.
I don't know the 4th phone.

-my son had thrown the phone one time and aside from side scratches, no problem with the phone performance and screen is still intact, might be that the fall is not really that hard, just thankful that my money was worth with the device that I got! :)
I am using Samsung smart phone for years. My last phone Samsung SII for more than 3 years,dropped hundreds of times from all angle and height..never even a scratch till date. Now a sharp contrast..Asus ZenFone 2..says it has gorilla glass but the first fall in 1 week of use and the screen shatters. This is the reason these newer companies does not settle down in market and gain market share..because of such poor quality.
Really disappointed. Initially i was advocating for this phone...but not anymore...stay away...
