Sometimes it overheats, so I have to turn it off. Now I have big problem with the antennae. Can't call and text, can't receive calls and messages either. This phone is not good.
Worked OK, camera is just OK and it is slower than high end Samsung's etc but that I expected at this price. After a couple of months though WiFi stopped working rendering it quite useless. After reading some of the other reviews here this is obviously a larger issue and may need to be recalled. ASUS will not even troubleshoot the issue which again leads me to wonder. The RMA process is long and involved you will be without your phone for weeks possibly. Then there is no guarantee you will not get a phone with the same and other issues. Save yourself the aggravation. This is my first experience with ASUS I am disappointed.
Empot, 01 Oct 2017Don't buy these Asus phones as they just give you crappy updates. At first I was a pro ASUS bu... moreyoure right. asus assistance is not that good. i miss nokia cares and response to those days long time ago. i cant buy nokia phones now since asus zenfone 3 max of mine is still working since nov 30, 2017
EXCELENT PHONE, the price here in Colombia was $130 Us dollars, i has an iphone 5 since February 2013, was perfect, it works 100% today, even with some pool and sea falls water problems and with asphalt throws with a thin case and screen glass protector, i don´t like phablets concept the idea of big screen phones on a man pocket i really don´t like it, i use the iphone 5 with 1 hand, and that is the problems that i have with this, but i need a phone that can endure all day long and this asus is fantastic the finger sensor works perfect, even on a rainy day, or when eating pizza and hamburger with grassy fingers, i am iOS fan but android is changing every day and is good, there is only some times that i lose in the way, but is only because i come from ios, that is so one way forward to do things when in android is like 10 different ways to do the same thing, but it only take to use to, some apps looks and use really great vs iOS has more features and settings, putting files (music,photos,videos,docs,etc) is a breeze on android the freedom is excellent, hardware on android devices is winning over iphone there is more for less the price, the performance on games and apps, is really fast and responsive, the quality of the phone is great it feels premium the gray titanium color looks great, screen watching Netflix YouTube no matter is 1280x720 looks great good quality, the headphone beat in every way the apple headphone, screen tactile response is 100% accurate, is a real pleasure when everything do what u want to do no erroneous clicks or bad letter chat writing the big problem comes when i update from android 6 to 7 and the problem is with the camera video that can record in 1920x1080 but since that update directly from asus now i can only choose HD 1280x720 and there is no way to solve that problem, i was falling in love with this phone and android, but now im regretting of changing iOS and iphone, i will have to wait to new iphone SE 2018 because of phone size and inconvenient on OS
if not i will give this phone for price and performance a 10/10
now only for that camera problem updating directly from asus zenui program with nuggat 7
Anonymous, 02 Dec 2017can this phone play 2k17?I hear it is so heat when we use it is true
I have owned the Zenfone for nine months and love it. Great battery life, good operating system, good speed and connectivity, camera is more than good enough. I think it does as much if not more than the other "flagship" brands, at a quarter of the price.

got my asus in good condition. But after various software updates (crap updates!), my battery is no longer functioning well, it will take a day or two for it to fully charge. and then, after another update, my phone no longer connects to the internet using my data! I was a tech support before so I know how to troubleshoot phones and it didn't work since its a software issue. damn! please don't offer any more USELESS updates!
PS. my phone is less than a year old
the camera focusing doesn't work well, the Bluetooth connection has problems, when making a call I have to dial on the phone and only then it calls on the Bluetooth.
besides this it work very well.
