I already have this phone for more than 10 months.
It still works out pretty good.
Did update it to Android Nougat and the UI more than two months ago.
Still works out pretty good.
Bloatware still remains, you can delete it you want to anyway.
Apps, like Audio Wizard, before updating, it was 'a' separated app, when I upgraded to Android 7 and UI version, it was integrated in the settings > sound menu.
Battery after update to Android Nougat... Still remains the same, (I'm not a power user).
Camera... Even if you use manual mode, and, do some tweeking, if you zoom the image, it will, still look... Smudgy... Not zooming the image, will be... Fine... (I'm not a photo junky)
Performance... Both before and after the updates... Works out good... Taxing it to much "will indeed" cause skips or slow down.
Listening to music... I'm not much of an audiophile... But... Here are my insights.
1. I do use a different music player, Black player and Audio Beats.. (for me, the typical Google music player sucks.. no privileges to tweek EQ)..
2. Those apps do have equalizer settings.
3. The Audio Wizard app that this phone have... Helps me to refine the sound and tweek the EQ, "on top" of the EQ that those apps have.
To cut the story short... Very Good... That is... If your using earphones, typical ones or in-ears. Using a much more higher impedence cans, is a different story ... If the earphones (specially in-ears) very good, higher impedence cans, do sounds that they will need much more.. Oomph!.
1. Transferring enormously big files, from internal memory to Micro SD,( with single file with a size of 4GB or above) do takes time (more than a minute) and the phone 'does' warm up a bit while doing such.
2. Finger print magnet. Slippery...
3. Since it's body is covered with glass...
You have to use a gel cover or any casing or cover, so the glass body won't get scratched or crack if pressure us applied on the phone.
4. There is No news whether this model will have an update to Oreo or not. (My conviction tells me... There won't be... If there will be... Then... That's good)
Overall... It's pretty good... And "Worthy it".. Specifically for it's price, when I bought it last December 2016. And buying it at this period, it will still be worth it, except, Problems that I mentioned above.
I am using this phone for about 14 months. Performence was great. But few days back I suddenly noticed I can't install any app or game from google playstore. But I have a sppedy net connection and I am uaing internet smoothly in other sites. When I try to install any app from playstore, it keep on showing 'installing' but nothing happens. I have reinstalled the playstore app and tried, but yet it doesn't work. I cleaned up all cache files but no result. Does anyone have solution to my problem?? For further information, I have updated the android version to 7.0 and I update whenever any syatem update is available.

sorry about my english
Dont update to Nougat or you will get any problem. Marshamallow is more stable and low consumption power.
This is the first time I am using an Asus mobile. Actually this Zenfone-3(5.2" display, 3gb RAM, 32gb ROM version) is an amazing mobile when compared with many same priced/same processor mobiles. I am using this since last 3 weeks. My evaluations are as follows.
1. ultra clear display with very good brightness but not comparable with AMOLED displays while using under direct sunlight.
2. Superb speed for operations, wi-fi and data when compared with other mobiles with the same type processor.
3. amazing back and front cameras. back camera with OIS(or EIS?) is very helpful for shaky hand people whil recording videos. GIF format available for video recording.
4. good clear sound through speaker but not very loud like they are claiming.
5. ultra smooth touch.
6. superb UI, even better than MiUI, lot of customizations.
7. very easy to use.
8. getting frequent updates, expecting update'O' soon.
9. Good battery backup. With wi-fi & data on 24hrs(whatsapp & facebook active), lots of calls, I am getting more than a day battery support.
10. screen sharing available.
11. lots of themes available.
12. good network and wi-fi connectivity.
13. JioSIM (VoLte) works perfectly.
14. Excellent call clarity.
15. In built call recorder.
16. good RAM management with superb cleaner.
1. very slippery design.
2. will not show internet/wi-fi speed.
3. lots of bloatware, but you can disable/uninstall which are not needed.
If anyone needs any help, feel free to write.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2017does this support quallcomm quickcharge 2.0? No it does not. This is confirmed by Asus and also a sticker on the back of the phone, 5v@2a=10w.
Amazing Handset, Awesome Picture Clarity, Beautiful Look and Fabulous Touch while using the handset. This is the right Choice, An amazing handset at reasonable cost....... I'm loving it1................

Our phone (I have one too) has a 1/2 camera sensor which is considered pretty large for a camera phone (same size as the Zenfone 4 sensors) and it has 16mp instead of the now usual 12mp meaning you can probably zoom in with your Zenfone 3 5.2 around 2x and even though it's not optical, it will more or less become like a 12mp crop so basically it can function just like a Zenfone 3 zoom phone. By the way, I bought a Zenfone 3 zoom in in just a few months the physical volume buttons stopped working then I got a white line on the screen. I think they have a problem with their screens but somehow the ZE520KL was spared. I'm back to my ZE520KL again.
I've been using this for a year now. No issues here - well, nothing a good hard reset after every major software update can't deal with, anyway. The physical design and build is just stunning, the daily performance and battery life are great, the camera is pretty good. ZenUI is hardly the perfect skin but Asus has been cleaning it up over the past few updates, especially with the recent 4.0 launcher update... Now waiting for the full ZenUI 4.0 + Android Oreo upgrade.
With the jacked-up prices of the new Zenfone 4 devices, there's all the more reason to hang on to my ZE520KL for quite a while yet.

I believe this is one of the best mid-range phone so far. Maybe you are the unfortunate ones. If its a software issue, try factory reset and see if it resolves the issue.
