shah, 30 Jun 2016Asus zenfone 2 ZE551ML how do I software updatego to settings, about phone, tap on software update and check for updates
I bought mine over a year ago from Ho Chi Minh and the phone has been over all excellent..except for the crazy battery drain, after their last update. Else this is a super zippy phone esp. with the 4gb ram and the camera is fantastic in daylight
i have no idea if marshmallow will be more draining on the phone than current lollipop ??
TheTank, 29 Jun 2016I totally agree with how great the phone is! :) I just hope the Asus realizes that Zenfone 2 i... moreHey, Tomorrow brings the end of Q2 and all the other Asus smartphones (except 1st gen) have recieved Android 6 (M) Update incl. ZE550KL that is Zenfone 2 (2GB). I hope Android M update for ZE551ML is released soon. Last by tomorrow. And, Yes the phone is really great and has hit the 27th position on AnTuTu Benchmark. The latest Zenfone 3 Deluxe (6GB) has ranked 1st and is the hottest phone right now beating Galaxy S7 in speed test.
10 months of using this phone.
1 Screen sometimes flicker
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
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.
Omar, 25 Jun 2016I have this phone for around a year now. It was super and fine until the Marshmallow update. T... moreDowngrade your OS. Unstable OS due to bugs and background apps suck battery charges.
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. :(
