It is not the best ever, but reliable one, and cheap one also. I found it smart, with FHD display, bright and clear, it is interesting feature. The camera is pretty good in his class. But the sound is bad point, not dts or dolby pleasant. With 4gb ram , if you may make same some root move, this gadget is awesome thing. Bloatware is minimum rather than other product.
it is true the battery drains fast, no wonder with display quality and good ratio density colour up to 401 ppi. If you want to buy entry level phone compareable with nowadays technology phone, you'll find this gadget no shame, especially if you manage this phone in use time about 2 years using.
Not a gamer phone dedicated, but, nonetheless you'll find amusement with it in medium expectation.

Never had any problem with it. I'm using a ZF2 for 2 years and its the best low-tier phone i ever had. I recommend it for everyone, specially nowadays where you can find one very cheap.

I don't know but first time when I tried the camera when early bought it, it was pretty acceptable but now, from Lollipop to Marshmallow and now my phone is 1 year old on December 2017, camera is the worst I have ever used, camera quality is very bad though takes on daylight.

I don't recommend zenfone 2, The screen ghost is driving me crazy.
it also freezes frequently.

mine died last week after i dropped it on the floor.
t... moreYep. Better stick which its original version Android and user interface to avoid your phone act abnormally. I own 2
Zenfone 2 and try update the second one. And I found that after updating, the phone is not as fun as the original version. Just update the 3rd party app like WhatsApp, Installed games or YouTube only. Many people think I'm stupid because buying multiple of this phone but I'm happy because now I have lots of knowledge and experience in smartphone world
The phone is pretty reliable even its not perfect. If you look at the spec, It is the 1st smartphone with 4 gb of ram and the ram management is very good. It also provide a lot of storage and even give us option to expand it with micro sd card slot in dedicated position without sacrificing dual sim abilities.
I also own samsung note FE this year in 2018 but I love more on Zenfone 2 user interface which is much user friendly.Besides the audio quality with earpiece is much more kicking with ZenFone 2.
The downside of Zenfone 2 are the camera is not too good, micro sd card cannot pulled out, the speaker is awfull, and the sim sometimes disable temporarily.

I have many ASUS product like Zenfone 4C, ZE500KG, ZD551KL. They all over a year usage and still functioning perfectly until today as I wrote this.
I intend to buy more ASUS
I had a truma with all asus phone because of this. I have Asus zenfone 2 (4GB RAM 64GB storage)
After 1 month of purchase the touch screen got flicker. I send it to asus and was replaced; it was still on warranty. It took them 3 weeks to give my phone back.
Then after 3 months SIM slot 1 not detecting. This is the only SIM slot with LTE. Again, it was replaced by Asus. This time the lead time was 4 weeks.
I purchased Oneplus phone as a "supposed" temporary replacement. I can't wait 1 month not having a phone to use. I did not use the ASUS phone since then.
I'm a tech guy. Everytime someone asks me if Asus Phone is good. I just told them what happened. And this Asus phone did not last a year. I regret buying.
To all reading this.. AVOID this phone! Search google! there are a lot of people disappointed with this.
a great phone with its pros and cons.
mine died last week after i dropped it on the floor.
tysm for your service for the past 2 years and 8 months.
i've since bought Note FE for $560 and couldnt be happier with my new device.
This is the worst phone I have ever had, and I thought my previous one was bad. I have had it for 2 years and I constantly had problems with the screen flickering. Then a month after the expiration of my warranty my phone started restarting itself, constantly thinking i was randomly touching the screen like a lunatic and I decided to change to Lineage OS because I thought that was a software problem. After I changed my phone with Lineage OS my speaker started to sound very crappy and I bought another one and changed it. Well I finally thought everything was OK, that it was finally back to how it used to be, but no it decided that it wont detect my front camera AT ALL. Oh and I forgot the mention the screen still flickers, the touch is still thinking I am clicking when I am not, and phone hasn't stopped restarting (oh and one more thing it even says that I'm not using a supported power brick and cable when I am using the ones that came in the box).
I have not been so mad at any phone until now, it really makes me want to throw it from the window from my apartment (I live at the 7th floor so it would look so beautiful to see how it breaks).
And don't get me started on the "frequent" and "good" updates that ASUS had released for this phone. Instead of fixing some things they bring more bugs to their OS, like bluetooth randomly and even had the nerves to put even more bloatware into the OS.
ASUS, please, do not make any more phones. 1/10.
after 2 and a half years of using this phone:
- did pretty decent on its first year
- battery life is always poor, 3 hrs of gaming and kaput, or 3 hrs driving with H+ and GPS, kaput
- game performance quite laggy on higher end games
- touchscreen starting to fail me, has random presses already
not a recommended buy!
