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:
Product Name Model Name Update Time
ZenFone2 Deluxe/Special Edition ZE551ML
ZenFone2 Laser ZE500KG 06/15
ZenFone Selfie ZD550KL
ZenFone Max ZC550KL 06/08
ZenFone Zoom ZX551ML
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.

Tobilogs, 21 Jun 2016This Zenfone 2 is on my list with Zenfone Max. Having tough time choosing between the two. ... moreI have a though time choosing between zenfone 2 and zenfone max can someone help me to figure it out whats better between these two phones? Thanks in advance! ^_^
Used Asus Zenfone 2 for almost a year. All good .But there is one Engineering design defect. The back camera lens glass protection get scratches on normal day to day usage. Thus if now taking any photo from back camera its blurry and foggy. The back camera lens must have a gorilla glass protection . This would be an additional criteria for my next phone.
Am I right guys .. pl let me know
Here in the Philippines, Nope no MARSHMALLOW yet..
10days after it was announced still no Update yet.
when I will receive android M in zenfone 2 ze551ml please answer me if anyone get android M in ze551ml in India
AnonD-340906, 13 Jun 2016Official marshmallow update roling out today. Asus did it. GraetDidn't get any Marshmallow update till now, what are they trying to do, provided update for each and every phone except Zenfone 2 ZE551ML.
for all the zenfone 2 users who are plaining to get the zenfone 3 ..please dont because the processer powering the zenfone 3 is a midrange sd600 series processer which dissapointing compared to other better devices around the same or cheaper like the mi5 ,oneplus 3 that have a flagship chipset....the only thing better with the zenfone 3 is maybe the camera but the rest a pretty much the same
I have this phone since January 2016 and all I can say is this phone worths buying ! why ? well, because it's good at that price, not to mention I got the android 6.0.1 beta wich is much more stable than android 5.0, the single problem is at the proximity sensor wich is faulty, you have to wait a bit to disable so the screen turns on during a call, anyway, it's just a beta , this problem will get fixed for sure ! 45k in antutu with my 1.8 ghz quad and 4 gb ram model [special model, z00ad] on android 5.0 now I got 58k , well, it's awesome and the games run much more smoother and better, overall performance is better, the phone is faster, the battery is kinda the same but overall is better ! Things bad about this phone, the battery cover wich cracks pretty bad if you remove it more than 20 times, mine cracked in 2 places, near the jack connector and near the top right corner, the glass is not so scratch resistant , mine scratched in my pocket and I always keep it with the screen facing the inside, not outside , another bad thing is that knock knock to turn on the screen, sometimes it gets on in your pocket and starts doing funny things like calling the police or your grandmother.... anyway, it's a nice phone !
