I've owned the ZenFone 2 (4gb RAM, 64GB HD) for less than six months.
Here's my honest opinion.
Resolution / Screen
SIM card slot issues
Camera, HORRIBLE! Try zooming into pics. Super Pixelated
I had the ZenFone 6 (still do) & had issues where the SIM card would randomly disconnect.
Same issue with ZenFone 2 even though it's a new SIM.
I definitely wouldn't recommend these phones to anyone.

I was purchased this phone after my S-Note 2 spoiled.
1st Major defect - Cant Charge the phone. After 2 months of usage, i found the phone cant be charged as usual. Only way i can charge is via computer USB after its completely drained off.
2nd - Battery Issue - Asus firmware was suck, drained the battery faster than my old phone. Not even last for my working hours. However, i used to change the OS to CM12. Which is more stable.
3rd - 4gb RAM. It is 4gb ram, but the speed is incredible slow. Quad cant beat Octa at all. I using One Plus X currently.
4th - Too many unwanted pre-installed apps.
5th - Low brightness display. Not much different from minimum to max brightness. It is too dark all the way.
As i have unlock the bootloader (due to battery draining issue). So I lost my warranty. Thus, as my advise. Please keep away from ASUS mobile*. Waste your bucks.

Great mobile phone with nice features, the only thing I have a problem with the sound which is low and the speaker is in the back of the phone, otherwise no problems.

Anonymous, 01 Mar 2016For videos, I'm using VLC player. It works really well with this phone. No problems with codecs.yes.. vlc hs all codec.. but mxplayer u hv to download and install custom codecs. i lyk ui of mxplayer..
Have used this phone for a couple months and no problem whatsoever.
No heating problem, no drained battery, no lag.
Normal battery usage last around 30 hours or so.
Higher usage will last around 18 hours or so :)
Best value phone overall.
For you who have battery problem, try using Asus start manager and disable all app except the important ones.
