I currently own a zenfone 3 (ze552kl) coming from zenfone 2 (ze551ml)
i'm not a power user i only use zf3 for simple daily tasks and it's more than enough for me.
The battery lasts longer than my last zf2 with same usage and it suprised me on how it's so battery efficient.
I played a lot of games in my last zf2 so much and it does the job as well but with heating issues when used with long period of hours and if connected in mobile data, i think zf3 can do just the same or even better without heating issues.
NFC was never a big deal or a deal breaker for it's absence in zf3 thoigh zf2 have it i used it only once to try sending a file faster than bluetooth. But even though i don't have nfc now WIFI DIRECT is just as good or better for the same file transfer thing.
Camera was not really a thing for me but zf3's camera for me is outstanding. Zf2 does take good pictures but zf3 is rightfully better.
Wifi and mobile data does connect without any dropping of signal.
I really love listening to music and i was not expecting the sound output of the zf3 specially with my MDR-XB650BT, i used it with my last zf2 but with zf3 i thought it was broken but instead the sound was clearer and not hurting my ears specially with long periods of listening. I'm so glad my money was so well spent.
My reason too by sticking to asus was with their blue light filter which i saw first with zf2. If you love your eyes consider getting something that will not strain your eyes. I read a lot in my zf2 and now zf3 but never had an eye discomfort.
Make sure to buy a bumper case as well to protect its glass cover. I just can't stand if it was broken in my case.
Overall it was 3-4 times than i expected. I was blown away.

Deezy buyer., 29 May 2017Guys im a marathon & heavy gamer.... I looking for smartphone that have class 4 GPU (so i... moreif gaming is your highest priority go for a smartphone with at least a sd650.. the sd625 isn't good enough for heavy gaming.
Guys im a marathon & heavy gamer....
I looking for smartphone that have class 4 GPU (so i can run any recent HD game at high quality...
So i what should i choose?
1.Asus ZenFone 3 ZE552KL (5.5 inc, 4GB) or
2.Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Previously i have 3 choices this one is Galaxy A5 2017, this both good except in camera (no stability) and its GPU just class 5 !!!. Class 5 GPU cant run HD game at full feature even its just War Robots.
Thanks for ur answer :-)
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2016j7 prime n moto z play are the great alternative for zenfone 3....im switching to them bye bye... moreOh bro u did wrong !
-Galaxy J7 Prime has lack GPU,RAM, and also screen and many more ! Coz its price is lessen that zen3.
-Moto Z Play have same chipset (mean same both GPU,CPU, and other related) but have lessen RAM!.
For quality : Samsung still rival of asus, but Moto have merged to Lenovo (mean have a touch of chinesse quality)
*Please note its just word that i written from my experience and opinion
Anonymous, 20 May 2017Which is The Best Into All Sides...? #Redmi note 4, #Huawei gr5 2017, #Oppo f1s, #Asus zenfone... morePick Zen 3.
Why?coz other phones u have nominated were made in china ant they have lack of quality.
So pick Zen3 u'll never regret :-)
Note : asus have best quality in developing PC and Laptops; asus is an Taiwan company.
Garry22, 26 May 2017Moto G5 plusNo type c USB, only those stupid will buy old port in mid of 2017. Unless the phone is very cheap and your budget is very limited.
I have used this phone about 6-7 months until I drop into water. The repair is too hefty so I bought myself a Mi 5S Plus. After another month usage of the new phone, there are some findings that are quite surprising:
1) Somehow in my experience with Zenfone 3 display is superior to Mi 5S Plus's(JDI). Color and vividness are slightly better.
2) Temperature, ya I know not fair to compare SD625 to SD821 but the differences is so obvious. Especially when you browsing and YouTubing, I have accommodated to my previous Zenfone's behavior. So, when my Mi 5S Plus heat up a little during my Internet session, I felt very weird and uncomfortable because I didn't experience that in my Zenfone 3.
3) On audio quality, Zenfone 3 is definitely louder, headphone audio quality on Zenfone 3 is the best(better than iPhone 7, Meizu Pro 6 and ZTE Axon 7 IMO). Mi 5S Plus would be in Hall of Shame for this category.
4) Button fitting and USB cable port from Asus felt a bit neat and better quality(you'll feel when you plug the cable) than Xiaomi's. Even the thickness of Asus's cable itself is thicker and felt solid.
5) I thought Asus's rear camera is harder to handle but I was wrong. In any mode, Xiaomi is no match to Zenfone 3. Only the front cam of Mi 5S Plus is better.
6) Call quality for Asus is slightly better, especially in noisy environment.
I miss Zenfone 3 so much.
