had this phone for 2 yrs now and still using it. heres my honest review on this phone
battery is very good. can last for more than a day on light and moderate use
in terms of gaming. high graphics on mobile legends and low graphics on pubg and it performs quite well
camera is quite decent in well lit environment but do not expect much since this is a budget phone.
sound quality is satisfactory for its price range
durability is very good. i dropped this many times and had dents on the sides but still works like nothing happened. NO tempered glass or any lcd protection since day 1 and still it has no scratches in it.
data and wifi signals are very good. call quality is also good
if youre a selfie person and loves taking photos. this phone is not for you
overall a very good daily phone. nothing fancy. very affordable price range and massive battery.
This phone is a very well balanced phone and an excellent phone for the price and size. The screen is very good. Battery life is excellent! The size and weight is as good as you are going to get with a 5.2" screen and a 4100mh battery. So what do you give up for the cheap price? The cameras are not that great, especially the front camera in low light. The rear camera is perfectly ok in decent life. And no NFC. But if you want a good phone that is small and light with a battery that will easily last a day and more with heavy usage then you can beat it.
Royce, 18 May 2018It's not a perfect phone, not even a great one either. But considering it's budget, looks and ... morei had mine for 6 months until i knocked it off a deck railing and broke it sadly. But i loved it, it was great phone camera was great, resolution is awesome. I highly recommend buying it. I'm even selling my current phone to buy one again. and a big plus i found was after owning one for almost 9 months it didn't seem to slow down. hope this helps your decision.

It's not a perfect phone, not even a great one either. But considering it's budget, looks and features, it does the trick. Surely there's better feature phones on Huwei/Xiaomi at same price, but this one has been good to me. However the touch is a constant annoyance mostly due to ASUS's tendency to launch untested firmwares every couple of months but heck it's a recommendation from me.
Really happy with this phone. battery lasts a lifetime, fast and reliable. The size is also right, not too small not too big. For me it is an excellent phone.
I have purchased Asus Zenfone 3 Max, so bad mobile i have never seen before. Heating too much while on charging, slow processing, withing 1 hour 45% battery gone down, many time hanging while mobile temperatures going up. Dear friends kindly do not buy Asus mobiles its not good at all.
Yaya1... It takes a long time because this phone has almost twice the battery capacity of most other phones, and you're probably using a crap charger. At 4100Mha I can use this phone heavily for about 14 hours non stop. My previous phones gave up after about 5 or 6 hours. Use common sense before you dis the phone because you don't understand basic physics. (Twice the capacity, twice the charging time.)
I got my new phone from. Amazon.. Home button is not working. Even after registering the product at Asus site, it says sign in failed though the same credentials are working from other Phone. FIRST TIME I BOUGHT Asus and bad experience.
AnonD-752951, 18 Apr 2018Most rubbish phone took very long time to chargejust use charging station with output 2A... it's more than faster with original asus charging (1A)

It is reliable at battery power and processing speed. Let us say it is 3 over 5. The LCD is very fragile. I have to replace it and after three months I did it again so be wary if your phone falls sideways. Your phone's LCD will be in the critical situation of impending replacement. The glass though is very resistant against scratch. Camera is enough. Display is not as much as AMOLED but great for movie viewing too.
slow charging it takes 8hours to fully charged, i dont know why, i opened the 2x lifespan a day ago and that day my phone takes 8hours to fully charged i toggle off the 2x lifespan and still it is 8hours. what to do?pleaseee help.
Really bad quality. Problems with WiFi, bluetooth, battery goes down quickly when is bellow 15% , spontaneous resets ( not very frequent). Technical service say 5 times canÂ’t reproduce it.
Very poor camera, excellent battery life, bluetooth wifi can not be used at the same time, very slow but in the terminal set very reliable
