I've bought this phone 2 years ago, I'm still using it and it's still going strong! Good performance, decent battery life, big amount of RAM, still gets updates from Asus even after more than 2 years since the phone was released. I only had a battery drain problem once, took the phone to the Asus service in my area and they replaced the battery and since then it's been running as intended again. Running it on Marshmallow. A phone that is still a good choice, even in 2017!
Bought this phone September 2015 and been using it until 3 weeks ago. Overall, it was a great phone. Three weeks ago, it won't charge then eventually it won't power on. At first I thought maybe the charger was the problem. Tried charging it via PC/other chargers.
Took it to an Asus service center. They said they were going to diagnose the phone first to find out what the problem is. JFC, it took them a week (and they almost lost the phone). So they tried replacing the battery and the LCD. It powered on for a while. They said the problem was "probably" the mainboard. (I don't really know much about that stuff so anyway...)
I didn't want to get a new phone yet so I asked how much it would cost for the repair. Costs add up to 6000PHP (around 120USD). Lol. I'd rather buy a new phone with that money.
Asus service center sucks. Lolololol.
I actually samsung user, before move on to this Zenfone 2, I'm on Samsung Galaxy S4, I like samsung S4 but just because of battery draining fast most of samsung model, I change my phone to zenfone 2.. so far as I'm using it quite nice until this lately I noticed that quality of picture captured by this zenfone 2 camera can't defeat the samsung S4 camera quality, I just love the display bigger than S4 and the battery more saver than S4.. after latest update by asus before some minor bug dumping my phone.. like drop calling, and some of built-in apps not running as usually.. it going to not responding.. it bother me...
I owned this phone from summer 2015 to spring 2017. It faced numerous hardware problems, including both SIM card readers failing in August 2016. I hung on as long as I could, but other problems came up (constant overheating, poor camera issues, constant app incompatibilities due to the x86 processor, and an extremely buggy Marshmallow update that broke compatibility with many other apps). Customer service was useless throughout, and the Marshmallow update came extremely late, long after it was promised. When confronted, they did not accept their error, instead editing their original comment on their forums promising the update deadline. Their Marshmallow update was a buggy beta at best, and after that ASUS abandoned the ZenFone 2 for the most part (the phone only got one major Android update).
I happily replaced my ZenFone 2 and will never buy a mobile phone from ASUS again.
Never buy asus phone you will regret within 1 month and the customer service is the worst one. They do not know if your phone is under warranty or not. They tell you to send your phone to service center and later ask for repair money citing your phone is not under warranty. Asus phone is the worst phone you will ever buy.
Don't buy this phone guys.. useless camera.. battery sucks.. heat up while playing games... ghost touches... calling screen issues.. no volte... no firmare version update(some but not big one) cant play heavy games as well.... i bought this phone 1and 1/2 year ago in 21000 Rs now it costs 13000..wtf... i use this phone only for usb tethering... lol
I have purchased it new 2 years ago, with Android 5.0 I have no problems at all, battery life is great, phone is fast and smooth, do not want to get rid of it.
I purchased this phone in 2016. Long story short. Till this day 6/23/2017, this is the most expensive phone I have ever purchased and by far the worst. Most importantly it does not hold a charge. It will cut off automatically, during a conversation. It is constantly upgrading apps which consumes more data space. I personally believe, that ASUS should refund any customer, with a complaint, on this phone. I could only imagine how bad the other phones were.....DO NOT PURCHASE ANY ASUS ZENFONES. They are making tons of money for small technology......ASUS, TAKE CARE OF YOUR CUSTOMERS.....THIS IS FRAUD!
i like this phone, i have him almost 2 years, after a year i replaced my moderbord didnt pay cause of the warrenty. i dont have any problem, great camera for great price. all u cry babys go buy samsung that cost alot more and die after a year. zenfone is the best, thank u asus
Previous many post about zenfone 2 but when post without id there no support volte, jio 4voice working but drain battery.
Asus this device motherboard problem normaly,
Good think 4 gb ram which never hang your system.
Asus own apps good.
My device motherboard problem come after 7 month. And generaly read zentalk comment post 50-70% face my problem which face..
May be asus zenfone 3 or future phone good take decision after review...
I bought the phone in march 2016.... the begging period was very nice and performance was great. The only problem was over heating of phone while charging and when in sunlight. in just a year the camera app started deprecating and then completely stopped working...The motherboard crashed and the cost for a new one was above 14k. This is the worst buy! A phone of 18k can't even function for 1 year. HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED.
Plz don't update..... 22.214.171.1247..........because full HD video.....perfectly not working......the screen is freezing.......please...don't...update....

Asus, you don't deserve to be a good phone. You need to return all of our money, your phones is a blasphemy
Idiot software design more than hardware design.
It needs update well studied using issues of professional users.
One of the main issues : I can't make miss call by whatsapp because the screen became fully black after first ring!!
Its software not fully compatable with whatsapp video calling too!
I have long list of issues .
To many idiot apps built in the device.
It is shame on Asus history . Do some thing urgently with your software kids developers!!
Best wishes to Asus, I like it
