Was very excited to buy this phone a year ago or so. It looked good, specs seemed fantastic and all. And for a while it worked great. Only complain was the case design: a bit to thin to hold it properly with one hand, although it looked cool, a silicone case fixed the grip problems...
After only a couple months, the screen shattered while in my pocket, probably keys. This things happen. At least it still worked.
A couple of months later, screen turned black and phone stoped working, right in the middle of a panoramic picture session at the beach. To much heat perhaps?
Got it repaired, new original screen installed and some other hardware problem. Official Asus Service in Spain sucked, so I did it in a not official but professional shop. New screen worked perfect, Phone was as new!
2 months later, screen starts to work oddly, not recognizing touch properly. Couple of weeks later, smashed the screen again on my pocket. Gorilla glass my ass!
So after 1.5 years of buying, I'd say is is quite fragile, and kinda lemmony. I'm in a hurry to get another phone.
It looks great, seems like it could have been a great phone, but it sucked ass big time, in my experience. A shame for Asus, an otheriwse great company.

lalalal, 24 Jul 2017i have a problem on my ze551ml. its battery meter stuck 50%. does anyone know how to fix it?Me too, mine stuck in 82%, but actually the battery is 50% or below
This phone worked great at first. Now, a few months into it, the phone continues to tell me no sim is detected. It is random, but it is happening more and more. I tried restarting...no help. I tried re-inserting the sim card...no help. Now I can only use it basically on WIFI. A waste of my $200 investment!

I have had this phone now for just over a year, and it works fine in every regard. Photos are great; video is superb, and the cost was reasonable. Frankly, I consider it a beautiful phone and am totally pleased with it. The ONLY complaint is that it comes with loads of useless bloatware which you cannot remove.
I have absolutely no problem with this phone. I have been using it for a long time, more than a year now and its superb. Best is the 64 gb it gives, so no need of getting memory card.
Asus Loyal User, 18 Jul 2017I'm using this phone for 6 months and no problem at all. I wonder how can people only using th... moreYeah, I'm also don't have any problems with this phone, but only the video quality is very poor, even shoot in 1080p looks like in 480p.
I charged my phone to 100% before I slept, then today... this morning... my zenfone 2's battery had only 18% left because it open itself all night. It stuck into emergency call screen all night. I already gave up this phone since today. I'll buy other brand phone. Any recommendation?
I'm using this phone for 6 months and no problem at all. I wonder how can people only using this phone for a few weeks and it already having problem. This phone has a decent graphic quality, fast processing speed, and quite accurate gps functions. Zenfone 2 actually a great phone for a cheap price.
AnonD-683769, 11 Jul 2017I had the same issue few months ago, after I connected the phone to laptop. It seems to be due... moreLucky u! I did exactly that but didn't work for me. Screw it, bought a new phone anyway.
The best thing about this phone is that it makes angry all the people that bought phones 3 times as expensive but with lower specs
I bought this phone thinking it would last for a long time but unfortunately it died after 3 weeks of use. The screen went black and the LED light did not turn on. I even sent the phone for repair while the warranty was still valid but they told me i had to pay over 200$CAD to repair the motherboard...since it was not included in the warranty...
Just do yourself a favor and don't buy this phone. It's a waste of money and time!
ASUS - Please consider focusing and improve on your PC's only, so at least people will not stop buying it! And please do everyone a favor - leave the phone industry, because you just cant do it!
Just sharing my own experience with Zenphone 2 for the past year of usage. That's it.
The most idiotic phone ever used. Wasted my money. Don't ever consider buying this cr*p!
using this since 2015 the first time ze551 were introduced, it performs perfectly as a mid-ranger, the camera is brilliant with its manual control and color contrast, although recording from this device and a lot details were missing in the camera result.
performance? the stock rom (5.0) is bloated and runs like a snail, but it got fixed after the 6.0 update because most bloatware removed, flashing custom 7.1 rom will give you a boost and it is more faster, have no performance drop issues until now and currently still using it as a "primary phone" .
