Do you possibly know why? And do you think my phone willin still be functioning well? I haven't turn it on for a few hours now and I put it inside a rice grain container because they say it's a good absorbent of liquid. Hopeful to hear from you.
Guys I'm in plan to buy this phone. Can anyone tell me about this phone
Any good things and bad things about this phone. Thanks

If you feel that your RAM might need a boost, you can always do that while you are playing any game by tapping it in the quick settings or by using the Game Genie floating widget. Most of the time I have above 900MB-1GB RAM free.

I would rate this model 1 .its filled with manufacturing defects , they don't even exchange the defect phone in the exchange period i.e within 7 days of purchase . The service men only updated some data's and handed me the same phone.... Still facing problem with cellular network .Moreover the customer service is too poor not helpful at all , I would not even give them 1 point out of 100. Too poor Asus overall is not good.
The camera? Excellent. The stock camera app makes things really2 bright. It doesn't take dark pictures at all but overly bright yes(i let the hdr mode on most of the time). In lowlight, the camera app gets really grainy and it has a purplish tint but when you snap a picture and check in the gallery, it becomes much clearer and brighter, which seems unbelievable. The lowlight mode works well too but i dont really use it. Video recording isn't that great fyi but it does the job. Focusing speeds are excellent, just don't expect the camera to focus when the distance between the camera and the object is really close. One thing i dislike about the camera is that in bright conditions, dark colours become brighter ones. So if you're taking a picture of a black jeans with a lot of light, it will look more like dark grey instead of black which I find irritating but it doesn't happen every time. The exposure, colour accuracy and video recording could have been better, but overall, I'd confidently say it's better than Moto G5 Plus.
Hi everyone, the phone in overall is great, it performs well, battery life is good, the camera makes great pics. But for unknown reasons my cellular data doesn't work(my mobile data). Can anyone give me some advice on what to do, should i take it to a professional or should i try and fix it my self?
Oddie7, 26 Apr 2017Zenfone 3 way more better than vivo v5. So, Zenfone 3.Vivo build quality is cheap. You can go to stores and compare it with asus. In the end...ull go for asus.

Roop, 07 May 2017Thanks for reply, but which one should I take zenfone 3, xperia X, or moto z play???I own the ZE520KL and I don't regret buying it. It has an awesome screen and very loud speakers. The phone never overheats to the point that you can't hold it. Camera and battery life are also good. I am not familiar with the other devices that you have mentioned. Hope that helps!

I really like the specifications of the Xperia X though. Good luck with your choice!
Hi all, how is the camera quality of Asus zenfone ze 520kl, I m hardly user in camera, sound quality and battery backup, I saw on YouTube this Asus ze520kl model camera pic samples it clicks mostly darker photos, other brands like motor g5 plus, motor z play, xperia X these models are great in camera performance, can anyone suggest me which phone I should buy (actually I like design of this device is too impressive), but mainly I need camera, sound quality or battery back up,
Frnds need true opinion who have this phone, Reply plz
Thanks In advance..
I have purchased zenphone 3 5.2'' version 15 days back , i had used samsung mid range phones , sony xperia z2, iphone 5se and xaomi note 3 . after 2 months of extensive research i risked on this new company and new model looking after many positive reviews .
Well this phones all the right boxes spec wise but seems expensive compared to competition and being new venture for asus .
This phone performs in fluid fashion , battery last a complete workfull day inspite of medium capacity. Screen is best for the price , MI has great screen vibrancy though. RAM ROM combination is on downer side looking up at hybrid sim slot . 3 /64 GB would have been great for the price. Processor is gem SD 625 is best in performance - cool , low power , takes multitasking with ease and can give run for themoney to its predessors.
Camera looks best on paper but doesn't perform what could have been best camera phone( Asus marketed it as camera phone) in spite of image stabilizing gears, the shots seems to be shaky, images are not sharp as expected- it has 4 axis OIS. low light shots are not worth talking , focus is not sharp - it has laser and PD auto focus - i am comparing with flagships of established player costing double this model. but camera is best in its price bracket and you have tons of options to play putting DSLR camera to shame.
But still best buy and its most beautifull phone in India market rivaling expensive phones and feels expensive for the price.. it fills so premium when people just look at the back of model, mine is sapphire black.
Asus is attempting to flood with tons of variants with same nomenclature , that confuses the potential buyers , instead keep portfolio short with meaning full model name instead of model number. And increase authorized service centers in India with decent service quality , asus will be successful brand in smartphone market and being Taiwan brand will help as we purchase expensice HTC for no reasons.
