Camera is absolutely hopeless. Snapping picture during the daylight was great. But you might as well just keep your phone in your handbag if you are planning to snap any pictures at night. Night mode is totally hopeless.
Don't waste money on Asus Zenfone 2. I bought this phone (4G Ram, 16G Storage) in Hong Kong (August 2015, HKD 1999 =CAD 330). The phone was manufactured in June 2015. I was told there was a one year warranty without mentioned it only applied locally (i.e. in HK only). In May 2016, the phone kept on vibrating and warm and the battery was drained in 10 minutes. I went to Asus Computer International in Toronto and asking for repair under warranty (the phone only last for 9 months). The answer was the phone was purchased in HK and Asus Canada is not going to honour the warranty and I have to pay CAD 253 to replace the motherboard and the repair is only guarantee for 90 days. What a joke? I can buy a NEW one for less and with one year warranty. I also bought in Dec 2015 Zenfone 2 Laser in Toronto and no one mentioned the warranty is only apply in Canada. Buyer beware if you are travelling all the time in and out of the country with this phone. The battery life of Zenfone 2 is bad. For the first 4 months, it can last about 9 hours for every charges. Lately, it only last about 4 hours. I have no faith in ASUS anymore. Their products do not last because I have Asus Laptop and the hard drive did not last for 2 years and I have to replace it.

I buy from a mobile phone shop which is quite popular in my country (Malaysia) called DirectD. They open a total of 5 sets of phone because they couldn't open the other 4 even they charge it overnight. So the 5th set finally ons and so far so good no problem at all. Try ask to change for a new set til its on.
Dont buy Asus Phone .....customer support is very bad...and phone quality is too much bad....if you want to waste your money then go for it.
The screen lasted only 10 months and then started flickering with vertical stripes making it not usable. Search on Google results in finding that it is a common problem. Looks like Asus messed up with the screen on this phone. Very bad for CAD 400/- phone.
Contacted Asus support for their Advanced Replacement Program, received an email again that Asus support person made mistakes and will be trained and I need to resubmit the request. I resubmitted it. It is already more than a week since I called Asus support for the first time and several times after that with no proper status on the case. A hold is already put on my credit card by Asus for USD 324 though.
I would not suggest anyone buying this phone.
Very sad for not having a proper Support in Australia, the closest support center indicated by the Asus Support in Perth was located in Hong Kong!

Guys, what's the normal battery consumption during sleep mode, like over the night, and/or in a super save mode? My experience so far: 20% of the battery drained during 6 hours of the night (in a super save mode). This is completely misaligned with numbers that this power saver Asus app tells (for ex., it showed me around 200h standby). And what is the usual battery consumption during a normal usage, say, several calls a day, 30m-1h facebook chatting, some photos, etc?
I have had my ZE551ML (4GB RAM, 64Gb ROM U.S. Version) for exactly 1 year now as of June 1, 2016, and I still love my phone. I know it's becoming dated and considering these benchmark at around 55,000 tops on Antutu (late model flagships are 130,000+), I am well aware there are much better devices out there now but being on a Metro PCS plan where we have to buy our own devices, for the $299 at the time, this was a great choice. It plays any game that I personally enjoy playing and has never let me down. ASUS maintains full support online including all of the latest firmware files, so if you get yourself in a bind such as I did when I forgot to unroot before running an OTA update, you don't have to worry. Just download the latest firmware.zip and sideload it over ADB and you're back in action in hardly any time at all. The UI customization options are truly amazing and many of them change things that, in the past, only Superusers could do. I think ASUS really hit the mark overall for a great mid-level phone at a price where pay as you go customers can enjoy it.
