Jeff, 17 Sep 2016Of course this device is pricier than Axon 7, Mi5 and OnePlus 3 but let us not forget that ASU... moreMay be in your country, ASUS after sales service is good, but not in my country.
Been owning the Intel Atom Zenfone 2 and this phone is a disaster.
Sending many time to service centre to fix this and that but still cannot solve the issue until warranty period over.
Aside from the Intel processor that frequently overheat, and have compatible issue, the call quality, sim tray, micro sd slot, the ZenUI, all has issue.
The phone like to keep restarting itself in a day for few time. Then, ZenUI always freeze, even on the latest update. Sim tray some time cannot detect sim card, then micro sd slot now already cannot detect any micro sd card after warranty. It call speaker also very quiet.
It is way low quality than other cheap phone that I own, which is disappointed.
This is not happen on me only, but all my friend also facing the same issue with their Zenfone 2.
Yes, the same cannot be apply to Zenfone 3, may be ASUS has sort out all the issue, then already ditch the Intel processor and favour to Qualcomm Snapdragon, it already made me lose faith on this brand.
PS:It's Zenfone Zoom 128GB now just half price from it's original price, and yet nobody in my country rush to buy it, simply because of headache on Zenfone 2, left too much old stock. Zenfone 2 also half price now.
Chaosruler, 02 Oct 2016I have the phone... I don't think there's an IR blaster on this phone, I don't see it and I do... moreWhat's your impression about the phone, especially about battery life? Does Smart Remote detect IR blaster?
Jeff, 02 Oct 2016You can use the app called Smart IR Remote. Please can someone to confirm IR blaster on this mobile?

Dude I am not lying... it even says it doesn't support due to lack of hardware component and this is ZenFone 3 Deluxe
Jeff, 02 Oct 2016Yes it can control IR equipment but you need to install 3rd party app to emulate the remote.
... moreI have the phone... I don't think there's an IR blaster on this phone, I don't see it and I don't see it on ASUS official website on the device, in fact only on gsmarena I see it has IR blaster...
tell me which 3rd party app you were talking about?
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2016Can it control air conditioners via infrared Blaster ???Has someone tried it ??Yes it can control IR equipment but you need to install 3rd party app to emulate the remote.
Other than that the position of IR sensor is bit odd, i.e., to the side of the phone so you need to hold it in a rather unconventional way.

Rango Jackson, 29 Sep 2016Will it work on Verizon? I called Verizon twice and got two different answers. One said yes ... moreAll the LTE frequencies of Verizon are supported by this phone so as long as you are in an area with Verizon VoLTE signal it would work fine but if you are some area which is beyond the coverage of Verizon VoLTE then it won't work as it doesn't support CDMA frequencies.
I love Qnovo, 29 Sep 2016Any button at the back of a big phone is inconvenience. I do support this statement of yours, phones with fingerprint sensor in rear are indeed inconvenient. At times when the device is on the table you need to pick it up in order for unlock it while phones with fingerprint sensor on front are easy to unlock even if they are on the table. Rear mounted fingerprint sensors on such large phones are even more problematic as the user needs to literally stretch his fingers to unlock them, not good at all especially if you need to unlock your device in jiffy. I don't know who started this weird trend of placing fingerprint sensors in the rear but it sure is impractical.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2016Does it support mhlIt has a USB Type-C port so you don't need MHL for HDMI output. All you need to use is a USB Type-C to HDMI adapter and you're good to go. Other than that you can use a USB Type-C multiport adapter like HooToo Shuttle to take HDMI output, connect USB peripheral devices, read additional memory cards and charge the phone simultaneously at a time.
Rango Jackson, 29 Sep 2016That's not the power button. That is the fingerprint reader on the back.Any button at the back of a big phone is inconvenience.
joy, 27 Sep 2016IS Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe have fm redio system....??FM radio is indeed quite a rarity on phones these days. But oddly enough the ASUS Zenfone 3 Deluxe has a FM radio, good for those who still listen to FM.
Taner, 29 Sep 2016Here is the question; can it record stereo sounds along with the 4 K video? I think it can not... moreIt has Active noice cancellation with dedicated microphone.
And it records stereo sound with 4K recording.
Here is the question; can it record stereo sounds along with the 4 K video? I think it can not. Could somebody confirm this? And is there an active noise cancellation and dedicated microphone for that? Those two that I wrote above are industry standards for not only the flagship devices but also for any regular smart device of a brand. Anyone has a clue on those?
Will it work on Verizon? I called Verizon twice and got two different answers. One said yes and the other said no. I contacted Asus and they said that they cannot comment on use of a phone that has not yet been released to that market.
