pf, 08 Jun 2015Yes, you are right, I was wondering why it happen all the time, when you type sms message, it ... moreU accidently touch the home screen when typing Space bar on vertical position. try to touch the space bar a little bit higher.. :)
Apart from those quality issue (phone die, hang, long charging time, call drop, SIM card undetectable, Micro SD card undetectable) and accident (screen crack from phone drop, network carrier signal issue), this phone is as beefy as high end phone, but with drawbacks.
Screen max brightness is not much on par, just around 380 nit, almost same with Samsung Galaxy S4, or equal to 2 or 3 years old phone. Something we can forgive with old phone, but not for this one, I wonder why.
Speaker loudness. Just go buy other phone if you weight this over speaker loudness. It is not as loud.
Camera quality. Sorry, this is among the worst. Don't buy this phone if you are annoyed with the camera quality.
Battery life issue, this is debatable where everyone complain on this, but why iPhone is forgivable for this? Beefy phone like S6, Note 4, LG G3 is forgivable too?
Not a ASUS supporter, but just don't expect everything on par with high end phone, which cost twice as much.
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2015Don't compare IPS and AMOLED. It's totally different.
Compare IPS and IPS fron different manu... moreYes... Agree, AMOLED cannot compare directly to IPS LCD.
AMOLED has infinity contrast, wider viewing angle, but over saturated and unreal color.
IPS LCD color is more natural in color reproduction, but some are with poor black level, and poor viewing angle.
It is more of personal preference. I like natural color of LCD.

i am very very confused whether to this are after readung the reviews ,with many drawbacks
Each phone has it's own problem.
Best alternative would be Xiaomi Mi4, Huawei Honor 6/6 Plus, Oneplus One 64GB, Meizu MX4, Lenovo Vibe X2, Oppo Find 7a. (Go read and compare for yourself)
These phone fall into the same budget range, and have all the same quality issue as well.
On the most expensive range (2.3Ghz, 64GB, 4G RAM), top up a bit, you do get Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G3, HTC One M8, Sony Xperia Z2, Motorola Moto X, which is still very good, and even better than this phone, considering the last year flagship spec. With price drop, these are worthy contender, choose wisely. Flagship phone do get better quality in every area, and much higher chance to get latest Android update. (Do check 2013 flagship phone as well)
I would say, the 2.3 Ghz, 4GB RAM, 32GB internal memory model is the best bang for bugs, where this is the closest to the last year flag ship.
But, if you don't mind on the RAM, and processor speed, and NFC, the 1.89Ghz, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal memory model would be the most valuable model.
what is the total available space to download apps in the 2gb ram with 16 gb intenal memory model ?
Is Asus Zenphone 2 (2 gb Ram) better when compared to Mi4i? Im looking to buy a new phone and Im confused between these two options.
I want to buy zf 2 but the reviews are so disappointing that I have to change my mind is really Asus serious about this because the phone cost more than 20,000 so Asus must do something to overcome this issue
Does any one know that when the Zenfone 2 4GB RAM, 32GB ROM (20k) model come in stock.
hi gys last months i had purchase this one Asus Zen 2,
Overall my experience is its an average mobile and i have problem is its accepted only Idea SIM in my device
is any one have this problem please tell me
I am looking to buy the ZE551ML with 4gb and 1.8Ghz model through flipkart(available at INR 18999 and in stock). Can Indian users confirm does the phone come with the quickcharger 2.0 (the 18w charger)?? Along with the phone priced at INR 14999 the users have reviewed as no charger is being given.
Please confirm whether it does or not ASAP. The phone is currently in stock and no one is sure till when.
I bought ZE551ML (2GB RAM) phone in last month.
But I am having severe problem with battery. it doesn't even support a day.I saw the battery usage % but the calculation doesn't match with the usage. for example my battery balance showing 10%, in battery usage i suppose to see 90% but it showing me only something like 60%. where is another 30%?
does any battery draining hidden apps running ??
if anyone have any idea or suggestion please share and help me.
fared, 08 Jun 2015well, actually, this phone has that. double tap to on or off screenSuch a great help
Personally I do not mind the Power button being on the top. Although it would be ideal to have some sort of "Knock Code like on the LG G series" or "Double Tap like on the OPO" to turn on screen. That way the power button being in an awkward place would not be too hard for people with smaller hands. Well that's what I think and other than that really dig the whole look and spec of the Phone. Definitely getting one of these for myself.
[deleted post]ola. zenfone works with almost all countries. it ihas quad band 3g, and fdd and tdd lte too. so no need to worry. but ram consumption is very high. with 2gb ram model about 1.2 gb used. comming to camera awesome features. zf2 have a toshiba image sensor which can support full frame video @30 fps and 720p @aftefps. but the asus camera app to be refined more
