Premium buit quality
Internal 64 gb
6 GB ram
Antutu benchmark can reached 1468935 and sometimes higher and can reached 147XXX and above
Hi res audio supported

Fast reading my dual sim adapter (i need it for put my 2 sims including my memory card together)
Has received nougat update
Selfie camera became worst when at dark
Battery 3000mah is quiet low for sustain for whole day without charging need to prepare powerbank that supported 3.0 Qualcomm quick charge otherwise you'll facing extremely slow charging
The speaker doesn't has any bass sound is became worst when turn the volume up to the max and selecting the outdoor option is really a bad idea
Zenui keyboard is not that good when u has used samsung keyboard or SwiftKey keyboard
sarfaraz, 29 Mar 2017Intel is good or drgn?If you don't mind app incompatibility especially games, then Intel is, well, not bad. Actually it sucks TBH. The incompatibility issue will drive you either up the wall or to the hospital (from smashing your face repeatedly into the wall). Get it only if all you do with the phone is general web browsing (FaceBook, chat, etc). Actually that goes for 95% of phone users. In that sense Intel is good.
sarfaraz, 29 Mar 2017Intel is good or drgn?No doubt, snapdragon is better than intel.
TechVB, 23 Mar 2017Yes, right hider. no comparison between zenfone 2 and zenfone 3 dlx. both are totally different.Intel is good or drgn?
I bought this phone 2 weeks ago. By far the best phone I have ever owned. Fast, long battery life, awesome camera, beautiful screen quality... I've not had one single issue so far and I am constantly using it. If people would learn to shut down their background apps they would see how much better the battery life is. But I guess some just need to complain about something.
TechVB, 23 Mar 2017I got nougat update :) And still not found any issue ;)Same, people are talking about a lot of issues with the upgrade to 7.0 Nougat, but I have none... :)
TGobuluk, 20 Feb 2017Disappointing; no Nougat update and they even don't say when?????I got nougat update :)
And still not found any issue ;)
Hider Hasbi, 19 Feb 2017I think you should buy it first and experience it before gave the negative comments here witho... moreYes, right hider.
no comparison between zenfone 2 and zenfone 3 dlx. both are totally different.
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2017How's the finger print sensor is it responsive? It works just fine on all fingers. Sometimes you need to put your finger a 2nd or 3rd time, but no biggie (it works on all angles!). It works if your finger is a bit wet!
hello everyone, just a question. would you rather have this or the samsung a7 2017?
BigPep2-43, 06 Mar 2017This phone has battery issues. My phone has to be plugged into a charger at least twice a day... moreI bought the ASUS Zenfone 3 Deluxe Shimmer Gold (ZS570KL) in November 2016 and it mostly delivers (ASUS_Z016D: 64GB internal storage, 6GB RAM, Snapdragon 820 - 2.15GHz). To all of you saying a lot of bad things about it, please get your facts straight.
BATTERY: this phone has powerful hardware specs and so, it OBVIOUSLY requires a good power income. So, all you need to do is minimize the power consumption by not having 10 different background apps running at the same time and consuming battery like candys. I charge it every 2 days +/- and can play demanding games through 3 hours straight without any problem (didn't try further than that as I mostly game on my ASUS desktop).
PERFORMANCE: Pretty much great. Had 1 laggy moment that lasted for about 2 seconds from November 2016 until today. And had 1 bug or 2 (software issues, not hardware). 1st bug: the phone frozen 3 different times when I was trying to unlock an application through pattern unlocking and I had to restart it. 2nd bug: The number of unread SMS was showing 109, for example, when in reality it was only 1 or 2 unread SMS. Reseting it fixed those bugs. Not much more I can say about that. Overall, very good performance.
CAMERA: Very, very good. Though the 23MP back camera is somewhat a false advertisement as it lacks the excellence it should deliver. BUT, you can count on awesome quality camera and very good photos in pitch dark rooms and some other cool features.
Today I upgraded to Android v7.0 Nougat. Great!
In case you wish me to aproach on more specific details, feel free to ask.
How ironic that this flagship phone didn't get Nougat yet whereas ZenFone 3 users already have Nougat
I use this device from last October. I also use Asus ROG Computer. Actually the laptop was the reason to rely on Asus to bu a phone. It was a big mistake. There is still no news, not even a word about Nougat update. Shame! I will never spend a cent for any other Asus device ever!
Babak, 04 Mar 2017It seems your phone has battery problem. This phone does not have battery issues. This phone has battery issues. My phone has to be plugged into a charger at least twice a day. I get horrible battery life time. Asus needs to roll out an update improving battery life for this phone. Trust me if I would've known it would've been this bad I would've never bought this phone.
