After years of using Nexus phones I moved to the Asus Zenfone ZE551ML 64GB.
THe phone by itself is a good phone. A few glitches here and there but manageable. What however is unmanageable is the lack of Android OS updates by Asus. I would have expected a 5.1.1 update by now, but the phone is still on 5.0
Other than that the bloatware on the phone degrades the experience a bit. I have moved to using Nova Launcher in place of the Asus zen launcher. The Nova launcher is a better option.
All that I can say for prospective buyers is this... "Beware of buyng this phone, you will rarely get OS updates"
I just would like to ask why my phone doesn't ring..no sounds for alarm as well..but the settings is not on silent mode..it just started when the " MOON " Symbol appeared in the status bar..waiting for ur reply..tnx!

Hai guys....... please install "Camera zoom fx" app from playstore....... This camera app solves 50% of our 13mp camera problem........ it works well...... nice output.... (my mobile is top model zp2).......
Guys after 5 days of extensive usage I m happy with the performance but battery life is big problem earlier I was using dual SIM but now I am only using one SIM plz suggest how to improve battery life if this can be done then my problem Will be solved
Philippines, 01 Jun 2015Honor 4x is already beats zenfone2 in battery life and camera quality So it would be easy ... moreYou are right dear.Honor 4x is better in terms of display, camera and battery life.Initially I also thought Honor 4x as mediocre phone, but getting hands on changed my view completely.I know people will whine about Zenphone 2 processor and mighty 4gb ram, but they should take into account how well software and hardware is optimised into a system.Like an IPhone with 1 GB ram is more efficient then 4gb ram of Asus.
It gives message "unfortunately com.android has stopped working " and the screen gets off and then on.
It helds many time ...please give me reason for problem and its solution...
First and foremost to the bashers and whiners
PLEASE do buy a different phone. Do not BLAME the phone if you do not have the capability to purchase an expensive phone that has all of your wanted specs and performance. LOW BALLERS = COMPLAINERS wanting to get more out of something that was already provided at a really competitive price. compare the price the specs and the performance before you whine
and if you dont get what you want then save more and buy a phone that you really like
Hey guys. Anybody here can give me an info on how to update my zenfone 2? Am suspecting a camera bug in the system. And smetyms the phone just turns black. Especially the home screen. Only d drop down menu works. I keep restarting and shutting down the phone so dat it goes back to normal. Realy need ur help
Well, it's not my network. I used two new Sims and the Asus phone couldn't be activated here in the U.S.
I put the new Sim in my old phone and voila, activated.
I have H20 which is on the list of what Asus can connect to. I guess i'll have to return it.
pato2015, 02 Jun 2015firstly i am too from the philippines..i was one of the few who got the first zenfone 2 back i... moreYes bro.
I did compare it many times and the honor 4x does have a brighter and better screen color than zenfone 2's FHD screen at i did it at both 100% screen brightness.
You can do it too if you want a proof.
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2015Does Asus have recognised service centres in India?Ya..... service centers are there...... just check Asus service centers contact number.....from internet.....Then you get connected with Asus computer service centers...... but they will help you to get mobile service centre number near you........

I can't turn it on unless I p... moreIt's no way u can sort that. it's a manufacturing issue, the battery has an inactive cell at that point, I have the same problem but at 35-37% ..Either I'll buy an external battery charger or I'll try to see if the battery can be replaced..
Deadbeat, 02 Jun 2015Can anyone give me a detailed review of the device , i read some reviews about call drops and ... moreYes, it was disappointing at the beginning, but then Asus sent some updates that improved the camera,but not too much. However, then I found a forum where users said that turning off "optimization" in the settings of the camera, you will get a huge improvement. I did it and yes it was a huge improvement, the camera now is very good, maybe awesome for the price
any one have idea how to get fast charger, if u don't have bundled it with mobile? thanks in advance.
