2 Headset and charger socket became loose (charging became 12 hours to full, cracking sound when calling using headset)
3 Speaker cracking sound
4 The plastic side of the phone can easily get scratch
My asus zenfone 2 (2gb) freezes sometimes,I'm on the latest version
Where is the update
Tomorrow Q2 will end Asus zenfone 2 laser already received update 2 weeks ago in India
Still being the cheapest in the family
Why is this happening with zenfone 2 users?
when we'll receive update ?
Asus are you listening?
Screen flickering n battery drain issue is very common
But battery drain due to flashlight app
I don't even use that app
iLikeTurtles, 21 Jun 2016I have this phone since January 2016 and all I can say is this phone worths buying ! why ? wel... moreI totally agree with how great the phone is! :) I just hope the Asus realizes that Zenfone 2 is one of the best phones they had created, next to the Zenfone 3 they announced lately, and hope they give this phone the Marshmallow update. I've been checking since day 1 of Q2 if the Marshmallow update is available.
The knock knock does not work all the time, especially when it freshly came out of your sweaty pockets! :) LOL!
Phone is totally F'd.
I should have bought a Oneplus 2, constant issues and im always wondering if this thing is gonna die out on me, real shame because aside from the issues its a great phone for a cheap price (300 Australian dollars, Oneplus 2 is nearly 600), flickering screen, crashes when playing music, ugh.

Anonymous, 21 Jun 2016for all the zenfone 2 users who are plaining to get the zenfone 3 ..please dont because the pr... moreyou are mistaken, the Zenfone 3 Deluxe has the same chipset as the OnePlus 3 - Snapdragon 820
Delay due to Intel chipset overwise if they used Qualcomm it will be much earlier......
I like this phone and I just got it a few days ago and the looks and feels are great, but the bad news is it has a boat load of issues. no update for android marshmallow yet despite the fact that they announced it a year ago and there is a sdcard memory undetected issue! if you are planning to get this phone, steer clear for now!
Is anybody out there having issues on their z2? Especially flickering of screen. :(
I have this phone for around a year now. It was super and fine until the Marshmallow update. The issue is that it drains the battery very fast and does not charge except after I restart the phone. Do you have any idea about how can I fix this issue?
Thank you very much
They changed the release date terms from until, to...starting with...untill when god knows.
The following ASUS ZenFone models will receive the Android M (6.0) upgrade starting from Q2 of 2016:

ZenFone2 Laser ZE500KG 06/15
ZenFone Selfie ZD550KL

What to expect when the Android M update is installed on an ASUS smartphone:
Google Messenger, Calendar, and Gmail apps will automatically be included with the Android M update. These apps will replace three ZenUI appsÂ—ASUS Messenger, ASUS Mail and ASUS CalendarÂ—as the default apps in the Android M version of ZenUI if you restore to factory settings after the update.*
* Please note: if you restore to factory settings after the update, ASUS Messenger, ASUS Mail and ASUS Calendar can be downloaded from Google Play.
