i recommend everybody to get the 4gb version as it comes with fast charger, plus better SOC at $100 more only. the fast charger is really important as the battery life on this phone is average.
Tester, 07 Jun 2015Whats the version its showing? I just checked and i dont find any new update. The lastest as p... moreYes, you are right, Asus released V126.96.36.199 OTA update. For me, it worked! I saw considerable improvement in the battery life of Zenfone 2 that was draining too fast before. However this site http://www.firstreporter.org/several-issues-zenfone-2-fixed-latest-ota-update/ also saying that network stability is also cured to some extent
paul, 09 Jun 2015probably 750mb ..Please don't troll here.
The Android OS used around 10GB memory, thus, available space is around 6GB for apps download.
What you mention about 750MB is the size of firmware downloaded from ASUS support website.
viper29 , 09 Jun 2015hiii all please tell me does other country sim card works in zf2 if I buy it in india?? ... moreYes Nepalese Telecom (Other Country) Sim Card is well supported but you have to make sure that your phone is unlocked.
Rubun, 08 Jun 2015what is the total available space to download apps in the 2gb ram with 16 gb intenal memory model ?probably 750mb ..

I bought ZE551ML (2GB RAM) phone in last month.
But I am having severe problem with batt... moreDon't know mate battery is the biggest problem with this phone I m using the 4gb model and same problem.
Try to get the software update I got 2 updates and only using single sim now it's better
rajender k, 08 Jun 2015I am looking to buy the ZE551ML with 4gb and 1.8Ghz model through flipkart(available at INR 18... moreI am using the ZE551ML model and bought it from flipkart but no fast charger Asus gives normal charger which takes 4 hours to full charge the phone but the battery drains out every 6 hours.
Plz don't use both Sims together as it eats more battery. For last 1 week m only using single sim and the battery life has increased to 12 hours approximately. But since yesterday again charging is a problem and when put on charging it's continues to decrease the battery life.
Overall I m not a happy user just using it as money is wasted and flipkart gives thousands of excuses to return the product.
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.

Compare IPS and IPS fron different manufacturer
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
