The ASUS Zenfone 2 is one of the best phones I've ever had. Excellent pix & video quality, great battery life, great reception, the 4GB RAM is great and very fast, and the 64GB internal memory is all I really need, but I still use a SD card to store my pix and videos on. I bought the phone used and had to replace the SIM/SD card tray, but that was only a few dollars and 1/2 an hours time. (not reading the first SIM card consistently). I prefer this phone over the later ASUS Zenfones because I have a dedicated SD card slot, and I can still use 2 SIM cards, which is the main advantage to me with this type of phone. The later versions require the SD card to use the 2nd SIM slot, which kinda defeats the idea of a dual SIM phone. I recommend this phone to anyone who likes great pix and videos, and a sturdy trustworthy cell phone that meets everyday needs.
Used this phone since release and I have to say it's definitely a decent product for the price. I never had glitches with this phone despite what some have mentioned.
Have changed from this to the Zenfone4 recently. A good upgrade
I just bought this phone in the last 7 months. many problems arise .. sincard problem is not dettect, battery problem is bad .. too bad
Everything is good but After 1 year, my phone has ghost touch, and I regret of buying this phone.
Do not buy this rubbish phone. This is a trap. ASUS you own me your explanation. The LCD is the worse part of this phone. Flickering, glitching, all the worse thing that you can imagine for an LCD are here. Thanks for your tech hole ASUS.. next time, make sure that your research's budget is bigger than your marketing budget.
I bought this mobile from Jumbo electronic Litex offer, really I m very sad about this , because 3000 MaH battery , even 1 hour also not standing this , the sales girl was by heart how to sell , they never learn , what is the drawbacks , But I am using last 2 years apple iPhone, its my pride , a wonderful in the world
Don't buy this phone. Terrible ghost touch problem will occur after 8 months of using. Terrible product from Asus. Almost most of the user facing the same issue. You guys can check in asus website. Even Asus doesn't have answer for the problem by simply ask to replace the LCD. Worst phone ever...
Have been using it since 2013. I am a bad user, always dropped my phone everywhere, on road, on table, on floor, etc. But this phone still function greatly until 5 months ago which is caused due I dropped it from 2nd floor. Had to fix the screen and speaker, and it works properly again,until now i had to fix the charger port. Overall, I really love this phone, great quality and endurance, great speaker, nice screen, fast performing, fast charging. The only one weakness is it was too heavy, so I always dropped it since my hands are pretty small.
This is actually a nice phone. But i am a student .i have lot of things browse and use mostly common social media about 10 hours a day .but the phone still works fast and have no hanging problem .but the software has crashed many times . The battery back up is so poor i have writed this content using 2 % of charge with no background apps and at very low screen brightness i am very angry to go long trips with this phone . Cause this phone need a charger all day .after full charging i will unplug the phone and left for free until i came back .this phone seems cool outside when not running after the class the battery will 60 percentage or less i hate this phone
Worst Smart phone i have ever used. Got lots of troubles within a year namely software, Sim not detected, Charging slot problem and got repaired coz of warranty. Now after the warranty is over i am having a issue of sim card not detected i.e sim gets disconnected automatically. his phone got a heap of network issue. Network gets disconnected in between a call. I am afraid to give an interview call by this phone. Now the mic 1 stopped working. This phone is a usless shit. Its a crap. Still now havent got any Volte update. This is a serious shit.I also got a asus earphone with warenty of 6 months and it stopped working right after 6 months and 8 days. This is an honest review so whoever planning to buy this phone or any of asus product. Stay away.....
Have been using this phone since September 2015 and it still runs the same as on the first day! Very satisfied with it, it's still a good phone to get even in 2017! Interface is awesome, it runs butter smooth, be it apps or games, the phone camera is good for taking pictures during daytime (I don't take pictures during the night anyway), the 32 GB of RAM (25 GB available for use) are more than enough for apps, games, pictures and other type of files.
I have used this phone since the release date, here is my opinion
the battery is strong enough to hold up to one day and never lose it's capacity over time, charging it every night before going to bed and it's fine until now, camera is brilliant with although the video isn't, plus the vibration sounded bad.
and when it comes to performance, I would like to say good job for intel, this phone doesn't lag after a year usage with its bloated zenUI, still feel smooth, and the performance improves a lot after I installed Nougat with LineageOS buil, while other midrangers will lag in several month, this phone won't.
maybe I'll stick to this phone if there's custom oreo build available,
I got this cell phone in late 2016, it came with Lollipop, I updated it to Marshmallow, but I did not keep that, I currently have it with Nougat with the Lineage distribution and I look forward to updating it to Oreo. But not everything was honey on flakes, came with a problem with the battery, in ASUS could not help me or the process was being very long with the tests without meaning they asked me to do, I ended up buying a new battery and I changed it myself . Is a good cell phone and that is the 2GB version of RAM at 1.83 GHz. It was not so easy to unlock the bootloader and make it root, but once made is just like other cell phones to install ROM's since recovery. The 3000 mAh battery lasts depending on the use they give you. The screen does not have the desired brightness, but with the correct settings it plays videos in 4K. I would buy it again.
I used this phone almost 2 years. No need to argue. Satisfied. Truly smartphone.
Bought it on in July 2016, there was a sale on B&H. It was great when such cheap phone had so great power, but it became hot even after 30-minutes of casual gaming. And after a year the screen stopped rendering the bottom side, then both SIM died and after that even speaker stopped working.
This is motherboard issue which costs 120$. Very bad!
I bought it 2years ago & I love it so much but this week I had a problem with its LCD!The colors on the bottom of the cellphone are mixed up. I'll have to work half an hour so that the touch will work again as normal.I dont want to change it but I have to do it :(
Ikhwan 79, 11 Aug 2017Ghost touch happen every time, always...especially when oppening web browser, playg game etc. Same with me.
A total garbage of a phone, very sensitive touchscreen and it touches by itself and sometimes doesn't work, no native app for videocall, the back button is not backlit and it can also be bendable easily so you must take good care of it and the plastic at the back brokes near the audio jack and it slides down making whole thin plastic USELESS. It still works but touchscreen and weak quality is a NO NO for me, I will buy Nokia 8 new one instead.
Asus zenfone 2 is good. I like the specs and its speed for games is awesome :)
I only had a software problem that sim 2 slot is not detected and have it repaired in Asus service center for free due to warranty. It works fine now. My only problem now is my charger, the cable is easy to lose and it takes me a day to charge my phone to 100%.
