This is the worst phone I've ever owned.
Things I hate about it:
1. It looks cool, but the thin edges feel unstable in my hands.
2. Few (or none) cases available.
3. Volume button is not on an edge. Since it is on the same side as the camera lens if you can get a case it would cover this button.
4. The 'Home' button is not a hard (real) button. It's touch and near the space bar so you accidentally hit it sometimes.
5. The battery dies at an alarming rate.
6. The touch response seems slow.
7. Bluetooth volume is much quieter than an iPhone 4s.
8. Bloatware. Asus must think its a computer because they filled it full of garbage.
9. It hangs up while logging in on occasion and you have to log in
I'm sure there is more as everyday I hated the phone a little more.
Asus seems to copy all other phone companies problems, which seems like a terrible business model.
After 6 months of use I could no longer tolerate how worthless my Zenfone3 is and switched back to Samsung.

My Z3 was bought last December 2016 and I have no issues whatsoever so far on my phone even with the latest firmware and OS releases.

I'll keep you posted if this solves the problem or not.
I strongly recommend factory-resetting this phone after updating both the OS and ZenUI to 7.0 Nougat in order to avoid all sorts of software issues.
after nougat update
camera focus issue
and vibration issue occur
any one of you experience this? how to resolve please help thanks

unstable in receiving text/sms message when using sun cellular sim/network if unit is configured to 3G on both sims(non automatic setting). tried the sun cellular sim in another non-asus unit and its functioning well even if set to 3G. applied the nougat update but still problem exists. asus needs to address this in a new firmware. forcing to set to 3G on both sims is quite important specially when you are in a remote area where signal is scarce.
