AnonD-639741, 31 Jan 2017I'm experiencing a glitch with my Asus ZenFone 3. I have to regularly set the airplane mode on... moreSet your sun network to 2g mode. I think that is the problem of sun network. I am a sun users too. I could not send messages easily so i have to switch to airplane mode to get signal. In my previous phone i have problems like this. So the problem is not the phone but the network itself.
I am using this phone for 5 months. Still the greatest. I am very satisfied.
RAM: 3.5gb Very fast, no lags. (I played carx drift racing and fruit ninja. Haha)
Storage: I've got 64gb internal memory which I have no problem in my storage.
Body: Still great design. Very handy but somewhat slippery to the hand. (Bought transparent jelly case).
Screen: is Bright (adjustable of course). Scratch resistant. Good resolution.
Battery: 1 day and a half (i'm an average user with wifi on for whole day, if data on, 1 day only).
I still dont know if it is fast charging, i eventually charged my battery today, my battery life was 4℅ i charged it for an hour, then its now 27%. (Have your judgement)
Charger slot: Type C. Still limited supplies in the Philippines. (I bought extra cable at ali express online shop to use it for emergency or for traveling)
camera: still pictures-Good but not superb. Nice when daylight and Use manual mode when capturing at night so you can have great quality pictures. 16mp rear, 8mp front. Video - still good.
Fingerprint scanner: very good. Fast sensor and very useful. No need to always press the power button to on or unlock.
Bloatwares: just disabled them if you dont need it. Still, the phone runs good.
Speakers: Good. It has outdoor mode. Of course when too loud outside, just use the head-set.
Wifi: fast connection to wifi/s.
Data: support 4G. The speed depends on your network
I think these are all the basic needed to know why i am still satisfied with my asus zenfone 3.
I'm a female user by the way.

AnonD-635118, 19 Jan 2017This phone or Huawei Nova (not Plus) ?Hold them both in hand and then decide which one you like. I went with the zenfone 3 because i couldn't get a hold of the huawei nova. They are pretty much the same thing. I like the nova design better because of the smaller form factor and better battery. Camera performs similarly to zenfone if not even better in low light. The thing is you are going to miss the optical image stabilization on the nova and trust me it's a nice feature to have. Laser autofocus isn't really that great. It only works for 1.5 meters and sometimes it gets annoying when you try to take a picture through a dirty window. So yeah you wont miss it on the nova. They both have premium build quality. I'm not disappointed with asus but i still feel that the battery could have been better. As for the software...well they're both pretty much bloated and you need to do some app disabling/uninstalling. So far asus has been stable. I don't know how other fingerprint readers perform but the one on the asus kind of annoys me. I'd like it to work as well when I slide my finger across it sideways but instead I have to find it on the back and hold my finger steady or slide it vertically. The most annoying thing about the zenfone 3 is the fact that it is very slippery on the sides. Be very careful when you unbox it because it comes wrapped in a plastic foil with absolutely no grip. I'm not sure how's the support for asus phones and how often they update but in one week i got 3 stability updates since i bought it. The update to android 7.0 should come soon enough. Another thing that annoyed me while I was traveling abroad is that it didn't automatically add the home country prefix to numbers while calling and I had to edit number before calling. Huawei as far as I know does this automatically. Otherwise everything else works great. I like the fact that you can record calls with the stock dialer app. Signal is good, voice volume is good, speaker quality is ok but it could have been louder, gps connects almost instantly and even works indoors. The accuracy is ok but I feel like it could have been even better. In conclusion it's a matter of taste as the phones are pretty much equal.
AnonD-635639, 20 Jan 2017OK, first of all, I have this dilemma as well. Asus zenfone 3 5'2 or Mi 5?? I mean, it should ... moreThis phone is good. Everything is good.
But if you really want to choose mi5, please consider about audio quality in video recording. Gps performance is poor. I cant even connect gps in highway.
Personally, i prefer zenfone 3.
I just buy this phone today.
I am totally impressed by this phone.
Design/build quality, camera,battery and sound are really good.
This is awesome phone in this price range.
Hyyy i'm using this phone for 3 weeks.. And my honest review is...poor battery life, camera average, video quality in low light poor, gaming good with but heating or lagging prob.. The price of ZenFone 3 is high
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2017What would you choose between this ASUS ZE520KL and Xiaomi Mi 5? Price is similar, ASUS is a ... moreMI5 better than this phone more. Mi5 good performance, good camera quality, good battery life. This phone very poor battery life
