Jk85, 13 Sep 2016Is this fone worth to buy ....? yes, it is great telephone. I enjoy it. It is superior in nearly everything even than iphones, and for like 1/3 of prize. However I would reccomend you to buy newer ZenFone models :)
AnonD-510043, 06 Sep 2016Is cm13 works well or not please tell meCM13 works excellent on ZE551ML!
I have been using it for quite some time. Performance is better, use significantly less memory! Just be noted that the following are not working at the moment:
- Display turns black for 2-5 seconds sometimes when some apps change the display mode. Just wait for a few seconds & things will work fine.
- No FM Radio.
- ASUS Cover app does not work fine.
6 months back i have upgraded my phone from Samsung to Asus, i want to tell u the features about this,
First of all ,i have never expected that no other phones can be bad as like Samsung but Asus broke that. Initialy i faced- call was getting disconnect automatically and after 2 months it was started hanging and it's as bad as Samsung. Camera quality z too worst and also battery backup. Its key button and power button seems like very ordinary as like they hav just done welding in a regular shop. i am not able to send a image file or else i would hav send it. Fact is i am not only 1 user getting this problem.my other friends are also using Asus having similar probelm. Initially u will feel there z no phone like Asus after 4-5 months u will feel the same but in a reverse way.
Overall i would prefer to repair my old Samsung phone and use rather taking a new Asus.
This product was a waste of money for me and material for the mother nature. Microphone broke in less than a year and no one can hear me unless I use earplugs or loudspeaker!
Screen has gone crazy too. randomly calls people, zooms in and out, flickers, get unresponsive etc.
No proper support service either. So regretful of trusting this company
Nish, 03 Sep 2016Updated to android M and now m facing some issues 1. Led indicator isnt working. 2. Screen i... moreFor double tap to screen off you change it in settings-->zen motion-->touch gesture-->screen off and make it ON. After update some settings have changed. LED indication still not yet resolved.
guy i would advise u all to stop using the asus zenui and flash cm13 .....i am saying this becoz many ppl including had faced motherboard faliure...my story is with two phone..one was zenfone 5 whose motherboard was burnt(een without intensive usage) and the other was zf2 of my relative...it got bad just after the end pf warranty and he was asked to pay 16k.......j know that asus is best in motherboard but believe me guys they are worst in software ..they just roll out softwares without proper testing and the after effects are faulty devices with burnt mobo and other issues..now as chanogenmod officially supports this deviC its awesome...cm13 works like charm and at any time u will get more than 3 gb of ram free...cm13 is having each and every feature which zenui has...rapid charge,double tap to wake,camera md other lock screen gestures etc....so my kind advise to increase the life of ur devices is to unlock ur devices bootloader,install custom recovery like twrp or cwm and then just take the best out of ur phone with cm13.......moreover in just comming months it will get android 7 via cm14...
AnonD-510043, 06 Sep 2016Is cm13 works well or not please tell meit works awesome....its the best i would say...fast charging ,double tap to wake...everything is working and there are no bugs......after getting fed up with the zenui mm i took this step and now i can feel the real power of this dragon

Ashu, 07 Sep 2016System update is good for asus zenfone 2 or not. Because the service centre in the neharu pla... moreAsus released the Android 6.0 update and pulled it out from their website because of some bugs. What I've heard is they will fix those bugs and release a new Android 6.0 update in the coming weeks.
After my last update home button and recent button does not work. Even quick settings is unavailable. Notifications could be seen either. I have notifs bit i cannot see them because quick setting is unavailable. Please help? To those who have experienced this in their asus zenfone 2. Mine is laser. And i upgraded to marshmallow. After i upgraded to marshmallow. It was working fine. But just the latest update. Now its not very efficient.
i installed cyanogen 6.0 on my device and now it runs even better. on basemark x i got 18548 and 1111 overall score on the OS II. Im quite happy with my device since my last one was a g2 mini.
I have bought Asus ZenFone 2 ZE551ML (Intel 2.3GHz, 4GB RAM) one year ago (Romania).
I was very pleased of it and the phone worked very fine. Even updated to Android M and everything worked fine - no issues.
But, now there is an issue:
- About a month ago the screen started not to be so crisp as usual, the text and icons have some sort of shadows under (like melting). Even some gray vertical lines seem to be visible sometimes (very dimmed) on the whole screen.
- Almost weeks ago, the phone started to have big issues: it does not display/update the image entirely on the screen (80% of the screen is either black, or only shows some colored vertical lines), but the touch screen is functioning (sometimes, I manage to launch some apps and the display works for them, but it does not in the usual screens/menus - app drower, OS menus, scrolls etc.).
I even disabled hardware overlays and completely reset the phone (hard reset), but to no avail.
Now I'm about to send it to warranty... after paying around 330euros and using it for a year :(
Great phone, but I've seen many people complaining about the same issue I have.
Also, we have been waiting too long for the Android M update.
I'm a big fan of the Asus products (PC-related stuff) and I didn't expect for this to happen in the smartphone area.
Thumbs down Asus!!!! Your motherboard kaput exactly after the expiry of the warranty. What a waste investing in this device. I am very unhappy with it. Two major problem in 12 month! No more Asus in future for me.
