Its awsm phn.i ise last 6 months the 2 gig version having no prblm at all.only drawback 2nd sim slot has no internate data pack workable.hope in Marshmello version it will diagonised
Using this phone since many days.over all the phone is good no problem at all.fast processing,camera is also good,battery is ok the only problem in this phone is lot of prinstalled apps which consumes 75% ram.these apps can't be uninstalled as they are inbuilt.if any one wants to purchase asus zenfone 2 he/she can but i would suggest if u can afford 4gb version then don't buy 2gb versions.The phonephone is good
I've used the Zenfone 2 since May 2015. It's a very good package for the price, which other phone has NFC, SD Slot, Dual Sim for this price? besides the OnePlus X but that doesn't even have NFC and it has a smaller display.
Anyway the Intel Atom SoC is very capable, I think it is lacking a little bit of optimisation for Android though but it's not that bad, it works and functionals very well. PowerVR GPU is very powerful, even though it is underclocked, the telephony features are really good as are the GPS maps functions, It's build quality is questionable as mine is starting to make creaky sounds on the back cover but It's normal wear and tear usage. The display is good, not as bright as my older HTC One M7 but it's good enough for a 1080P display.
Overall the features and package for the price is still unbeatable even now, since all newer budget phones have things missing like SD Slot and NFC, so if you get a ZF2 at the right price. It is an unbeatable package at this price point even in 2016. I hope the new Zenfone 3 is just as good when it releases, with the features improved
Anonymous, 30 Jan 2016Trust me! It happened in Malaysia as well. My phone was dead after 2 weeksmay i knw the price and is it that bad? u still can use your phone now?
buy this phone at 26 jan 2016. and i'm verry impresed. good manual camera control. good game performance and battery..dunno about 6.0 android. but the rumors will be available on february 2016
I have had this baby for a month now and I love this phone:
1. at $269, 64gb and 4gb ram, it's a steal.
2. It excels at some things, but not others, for example, most mic on wired headset don't work and it uses DIS instead of OIS, I think Mediatek Helio X is a better choice for CPU than Intel Atom, but overall, I am happy with it and expect it to last a year or 18 months.
i don't know what's your problem with this battery , BUT don't you all understand the logic??? it Has a fast-charging features, of course it would cause a slightly heat up on the phone, and fast-charging means fast-drains to. The power inside in it's battery are easily consumed by using the phone whole time. ALSO try to software update it. It also has start-up manager so you can choose the apps that would run in the background process on the phone's startup

1) I have called Asus Pre -sales help line before purchasing the mobile to check the features and service Facility, Asus Representative confirmed they have home pickup service in Bangalore. But after purchasing those guys say pickup point should be 50Km away from Service center.
2) Purchased it from authorized service center by paying additional amount of 1400/- (products sold online are duplicate and its 2400Mah as confirmed by ASUS showroom guy)
3) After 2 Months Sim 1 tray is not working,
4) Visited service center to get it repaired , But very strange incident happened showroom representative asked me to pay 1081/- to diagnose whats the problem
5) Called Back ASUS Service Help line
After a great explanation to the agent , He placed my call on hold about 20-25 min and disconnected the call.
Dont buy Asus Mobiles , Dont waste your money and time .
Well idk whats wrong with you guys, i have got this phone and i literally love this phone. For these money it's really cheap. Fock all iSheeps
it hanged once and dint open for 8 hours.. it was not switching off also and luckily it started operating ... after that later that too within 6 month of purchase it got crashed suddenly... and motherboard got damaged.... and i had to repair it......
kuki, 22 Jan 2016If I buy this phone, how many years I can use it? I don't want to change mobilephone many yea... moreIf you would like a phone that lasts at least 5 years, don't buy Asus Zenfone...mine did not even last a year. Samsung and iPhone, apparently, are the expensive, but reliable brands for smartphones. To think, I was an Asus fan...now, i won't buy Asus smartphone ever again!

Had this phone for less than a year. Now, it's not charging properly, so now, most of the time, the batt is drain. First time, I had a phone that needs servicing that is not even a year old. Very disappointing.
Love this phone!
I would like to respond to some complaints I've seen posted:
Turning on for the first time -
After opening the box, I had to charge it for about 30 minutes before it would turn on.
It's not be the brightest or the darkest screen out there, but I am completely satisfied in the dark or outside.
The volume button placement in the center of the back works. It takes a minute to adjust to it, but it is convenient.
Zero complaints here. Don't understand why anyone has issues with it.
I came from a much smaller phone, and this surprised me with how big it is, but it fits comfortably in my pocket. I do tend to use two hands more often than with my old phone.
Don't understand why this is even mentioned... it weighs about how much most phones do. I can't tell a difference; It's not a brick.
Apps pre-installed -
I am often minimalist, so I agree there are some useless apps already installed, but most of them I could delete right away. I expect every phone to come with some of this.
External hardware/case -
Its slim plastic with gorilla glass. This seems pretty standard for most androids.
I continue to be amazed with the capability of cameras in phones. Maybe I am not the best judge here, but I am pleased. The delay between pushing the button and it actually taking a picture is insignificant; that was a frustration in my last phone.
On a budget, I am proud to have an awesome phone by a manufacturer I highly respect.
This phone has so many issues. Battery heats up really bad during charging. It seems like the phone gonna explode anytime while charging.
Battery doesnt last long even though capacity is 3000. Cant even last a day with minimal use. When i play COC,will last me only max 2 hours.
The curve shape of the phone can be annoying when placing phone on a table.
The screen resolution is no good.maybe due to a low mega pixel. Not sure
Camera is average. Speakers is average also.
I wouldnt recommend this phone to anyone. I only used it for 3 months and i couldnt stand it already. Im using a samsung A8 now.
