Well, I was decided to pick this phone because I saw a lot of reviews saying that's a good device and because of it's hardware. But now everyone here is complaining A LOT about it that I don't even know anymore.
I was between the Zenfone 2 and Zenfone Selfie. Now I just don't know what to buy anymore, since all others is more expensive with 'less hardware'.
If you have a plan to buy ASUS ZenPhone 2 ZE551ML, consider these limitations:
1. Erratic G Sensor. There's no calibration settings.
2. The Data connection only available on SIM 1. So you can't switch mobile data to SIM 2.
3. Auto light sensor are not "smart", low brightness in highest setting.
4. The bottom case isn't flat, the device moving like a boat.
5. ZenUI auto-update reinstall Zen Circle even that app already disabled.
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2016Same problem encountered here. Any solution you had gathered? Thank you.I had the same problem.. thought because of the software issue but after upgrade to custom rom also the ghost touch is still there. This is definitely hardware problem.For temporary i used the lighter igniter and spark directly at the screen.. solved the problem for awhile but after few day the ghost touch came back.. i changed the lcd then the ghost touch gone permanently
Yesbee, 21 Oct 2016Just about an year (15 months) ago, I bought this Asus Zenfone 2 with 4gb RAM and 64gb HD for ... moreshame on asus if that's what happened to u man !! i also have encountered a similar proble mwith moto x force !!! this is really so bad !!!
[4gb RAM, 64gb internal] Not gonna lie, first few month i use it, it was very nice. Then some of the apps seems to hang, freeze and what not.. To make it worse now, the screen completely black out, it takes very long time to view the screen T^T
I even considered to buy new phone, but then, not enough money.. sobss T^T
Around 20/11 next month, my phone is 1 year old~
mine was bought last year when it just release the 4gb ram version..still working good..i give 10/10 for durability ..I drop definitely more than 20 times @ around height of 1metre .I had never use a casing since 1st day and what I did is only apply temper glass screen protector for the phone...the camera sux big time even though is 13mp...I had just change my back casing + a new screen protector from ebay at around 6usd..and the phone look as good as new .. LOL..do take note this phone I felt is quite heavy compare to lg g4.
Just about an year (15 months) ago, I bought this Asus Zenfone 2 with 4gb RAM and 64gb HD for $299. Last week I did accept the system update pushed by ASUS and it did install and while re-booting it just went blank screen and never switched on again. Tried charging overnight and then tried fastboot without any success. It does not even vibrate when power+up volume button pressed. I called Asus customer service and the answer I got was warranty has expired and the estimated cost of repair will be $165. This phone broke soon after the warranty expired. That's all the life of Asus phones??? I lost my trust in Asus products and their system update software. Looking for a much better phone with a reasonable price. Not sure which one to go far. Hope this review helps others in deciding whether to go far Asus mobile phone or not.
Sanjeev, 17 Oct 2016I purchased asus zene2 4 gb ram 32 gb rom from flipkart during latest sale.This is very cheap ... moreI don't understand why you buy Old model update with the new device and latest OS version.Intel is no more in mobile market and all Intel powered mobile having so many issues.Don't buy Old model buy new devices.In old model consider only Nexus 6 2014,2015,and Samsung Note 5,or iPhone 6 6 Plus or 6s ,6s Plus in low range buy Moto G 3rd or Moto X Play,(Moto G 4 Plus is best Smartphone under 15K) everything in this phone is perfect.All these devices will serves you great.
this phone sucks big time. my camera crashes all the time, battery drains like crazy and gets freakin slow eventually.
Good for nothing.
I'm using Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML. After upgraded to Android M, there is Audio jack Connected notification and the phone sound off as if the head set is connected.
Anyone knows how to fix the error ? Please share. Already took the device to Asus service center but according to them, I have to replace the main board and it cost me a lot.
Anonymous, 17 Oct 2016This phone really makes me sad, too many problems, ghost touches, broken buttons, bad battery ... moreExactly the same problems for me. Would steer clear of ASUS phones for sure.
Seems that I'm very lucky because I have any issue with my Zenfone 2... I took the cheaper version with Atom Z2560, 2 GB/16GB. My only complaint is about the camera: don't think that it's very good - just average.
This phone really makes me sad, too many problems, ghost touches, broken buttons, bad battery life also bad service.
I purchased asus zene2 4 gb ram 32 gb rom from flipkart during latest sale.This is very cheap quality phone. Wi fi missing. They send me replacement but second time product not charged.Totaly dead mobile.So beware of this mobile phone .
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2016Same problem encountered here. Any solution you had gathered? Thank you.As my asus zenfone 2 4gb version was under warranty, the service centre replaced motherboard as well as lcd panel to get rid of the only problem i faced (i.e. GHOST TOUCHES which were getting more severe day by day) they started around July August period in most of the asus zenfone 2 sets i guess, must be due to some software update.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2016I started to have the ghost touch problem after 12 months (no more warranty). The ghost touch ... moreMy phone was under warranty.. Had problem of ghost touch and it got severe day by day... I gave it to service centre, they changed screen panel and motherboard and returned my mobile after a day.
