O-ten, 02 May 2015Can ZF2 be updated to android 5.0.1 or 5.0.2 versions?The ZEN UI automatically checks and updates the phone automatically and i have been told that they are sorting out the initial bugs in the phone prior to upgrading to the later versions but they will do it !
I think my zenfone is just 20 km from me. Best shipping by flipkart................. excieted
For those that missed it>
ASUS ZENFONE 2 ZE551ML 4GB - 32GB - 2.3GHZ / Metallic Grey 1st review !
OK - had my phone a few days now and i said i would give sensible and honest feedback so here are my early findings -
Battery - as you can imagine with it being my new toy i have been doing a fair bit of playing with all features during the day it is now 12 hours since i unplugged it from the charger and i still have 52% battery left so i do not understand all the battery worries !
** Update had 29 hours and 15 mins use until my battery drained completely **
Camera - I have taken lots of pictures in different environments and light (night and day) and so far i am very impressed very nice sharp pictures with not too much messing about with the stock pixelmaster settings - maybe if you are comparing it to a Sony with a 20mpx camera then it will not impress but based on my previous phone its fantastic !
Sound - not the loudest phone in the world via the inbuilt speaker but perfectly acceptable and a vast improvement on the ZF5 speaker !
Processor - i have had loads of apps and games open at the same time and have not noticed one single stutter or freeze !
Screen and display - Not fantastic in direct sunlight but i have never seen any phone to date that performs well in direct sunlight - out of the sun its fantastic - vibrant, crystal clear and true to natural colours !
GPS - I am running Navigon and it locks in seconds and remain very accurate in my tests so far !
It comes with a fast charger in the box and reaches 100% charge in 1 hour 40 mins from dead !
Thats it for now folks but will give a more in depth review in a couple of weeks :-)
Anyone that has ordered this phone will not be disappointed its a beast !
mk, 02 May 2015got mine 2 GB 16GB version first impression Honestly very disappointed You should have bought the ZE551ML 4G / 2.3MHZ version its a beast !
jboy, 02 May 2015But When It well be available to get this phone I discussed this at length a few weeks ago and everybody said i was wrong the STOCK levels on the ZE551ML are very low everywhere and people in France that ordered on the 3o March are still waiting for there phones and have been told before the end of May ! So it stands to reason that as the India launch was later that you will have to wait longer my best guess would be the end of June !

Dear all ,
i am sure asus zenfone 2 is a great fone , but it is great onlg when we can buy or use it , i tried to buy the phone on the day it was launched but could not succeed , my questuon is that after the production is go live how much time it takes to complete a fone and test it , it is very clear that they did not had fones ready and created a huge hype to cut their marketing cost now asus need not to prove itself a good mobile manufacturer , i m buying asus products from around 16 years and believe me they provided best cd and dvddrives as well as mother boards , but if they did not had potential y did they brought in market , have you seen samsung products going out of stock , has asus has sold more sets than samsung samsung does not goes out of stock becs they provide sets on time run a full quality and diagnostic test andthen it comes to u , these companies just creating a huge hype sells few sets in cheap prize and that covers enough marketing what a huge brand covers in crores and crores , have every one received who were able to buy that , really frustated by flipkart and any company who plays a monopoly games on customers money . Lenevo vibe z2 , htc 826 , samsung A7 and coming phones like lenevo k80 are some alternatives but we are still running towards it because flipkart and asus are playing games
