Zenfone 2 user, 15 Mar 2016Does any one have the problem of fast charging? I have problem with it. My Zenfone 2 stops fas... moreHi ..
Charging is there ... That charger is capable for 6 or 10 months after that need to change and other brand charger is unable to use...
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!
It is the best phone.I like it very much.I think if you use it,you like it very much
Doesn't detect 2nd SIM often.
Battery drains fast.
No VoLTE support.
No more system upgrade.
Speaker volume is very low.
Always it hangs.
Tired now from ASUS products.
4gb ram, super fast processor. 5.5 good display, good GPU. Good rear camera.
Overall don't buy asus phones.

Not asus fault you failed something and brick it.
fiord, 08 Nov 2017Its a great phone. Best money can buy. The battery is great when upgrade to 6.1.1. How did you upgrade to 6.1.1? My latest is 6.0.1
The worst phone ever created, cannot even format the phone even after follow standard procedure to restore factory setting and also didn't even have a decent tool incase u are facing soft or hard brick. No more asus product for me. The forum also didn't help much since admin didn't bother to even read user comment about thier product. Don't bother buying this phone or u will be facing the same problem as me.

It's 2 years to the date that I bought my Zenfone 2 ZE551ML. The first year was fine but I do agree that the phone's display is drastically reduced when outdoors. After the first year, that's when everything started to happen. The phone would heat up where you could use it to iron your clothes. Screen would flicker. Charging became an issue as even the charger provided by ASUS did not work. Now, the phone is my desk drawer because despite having it plugged in for 12 hours, it still wouldn't want to turn on.
which phone is better between NOKIA 5 and ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE551ML regarding to charging, battery, camera, touch, resolution, processor performance.
