i just bought a zenfone 2 last night.. and got it charged by tommorrow around 6:00am and used it not quite long just for checking out on fb and youtube also viewing for c.o.c and not too long after it was fully charged around before 8:00am it drains really freaking fast just like im using my old smart fone (samsung note 2) and now at this hour it was 51% (1:36pm) and after noticing whats happening i only used it for texting around 10:00am onwards til now..
Most users of zenfone 2 complaining about batt. Issues are from India. Any users here from different place has the same problem? Im planning to buy this phone this coming weekend. Im from philippines tho.
after software update...it improves battery..camera quality . if somone face problems go asus centre...

But on my side, I use 4G and wifi (in my work/home), and I deactivated the "position" function (GPS or localization). When I checked the battery in the settings, I can see a projection. After 6h, it indicates 1d+16h before shutdown.

Only 128/64 gb storage and 4gb RAM doesnot make it good phone. Poor camera, poor battery and too heavy to use. SIM slot one stopped recognising SIM on my zenfone. so returned my phone to flipkart and got refund. Better to go ahead with time tested product. Zenfone 2 is only for gamers. Its not complete package for sure.
Rubun, 15 Jun 2015Dear Cristi, Thanks for sharing ur user experience! 1.What is the total available space ... moreOk. Let me explain to you a little the RAM memory is used when you start an app and not for keeping it on the phone. If phones stored the apps in the RAM you could use the only once because RAM is like an instant memory for deploying resources. So the flash memory is the one that keeps all the things you have in phone no matter the phone. I have the 32gb version an I have left 27 free.

It is not even close to any international brand that has a very appreciated after-sales support. Its a rebranded model and 720p is not even an HD res.
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.

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...
