Bought this phone here in Baguio City, PH. And it came with a free JBL Clip 2 Bluetooth speaker. I was a Zenfone 2 user.
Updated the software twice. No problems so far. No white lines. I was having doubts because there's a lot of people saying that white lines appeared after a few days/ a week of using the Z3Zoom. But so far, everything's okay.
Battery - Lasts two days - using the phone for messaging, calls, browsing, reading/watching, an hour or two of gaming. I usually charge using my powerbank. No worries on overcharging since the phone automatically stops charging when it reaches 100% (powerbank powers off too). I always charge when it reaches 20%. Takes about 3 to 4 hours to fully charge.
Camera - still prefer Zenfone2's camera (maybe because I'm more used to it lol). Pictures are noisy and poor quality on low light. Dual cam but the main function of one camera is for zooming only. Outdoors/good lighting, pictures are great (a bit saturated). Will try taking more pictures on my next trip.
Gaming - been playing Asphalt8, Injustice, Marvel Future Fight, DH5.. runs smoothly. It doesn't heat up easily compared with my Zenfone2.
OS - Asus could've packed the phone with Android Nougat since android n was already out last year. Well, hope they upgrade soon.
Hi guys... I want to buy this phone in Indonesia, but i'm afraid of white line. Anyone still has problem of white line? Or asus has solve this white line problem? Thank you
I am owning this phone. So far so good. Battery life is superd. Performance average. Camera average. But there is one bug. Lack of sensitivity under bottom touch screen. Sometime no unresponsive.
Hey guys, Anybody knows when its launch in india exactly date???
I m waiting from 1 month...
Yet again another update to the previous one... So I just want to make this clear, for anyone buying this phone that has AT&T and lives in California, personally I can tell you that on AT&T, this phone literally has coverage EVERYWHERE, I mean I had this phone for 4 weeks now and it's always at full bars. I previously owned a Zenfone 2 and that was the same case there. Asus has very good coverage on AT&T, now one thing to know is that you do get LTE, but Asus will display the icon as 4G, I've checked the signals and it does reach LTE. Now this is just in california, maybe it is good in the rest of the united states but I don't know, I have the US version with 3GB Ram and 32GB storage.
I'm so mad I love this phone but I can't use it to talk to people because people cannot hear me and when I listen to the phone call recording I sound horrible on it.im using TMobile in Ohio and it really pisses me off cause this phones battery is unbelievable.i heard the phone doesn't have band 12 that's why it's such bad signal I even took it back to get another 1 and had the same problem.i wonder if atandt will be any better Network
Why don't you guys post which bands the phone supports so people can see if it will work in their locale.
I bought this phone in Indonesia for almost a month and now using latest marshmallow update. The battery is very great, get 9-10 hours of SOT on single charge (moderate usage). The camera is good, the zoom feature is handy, but the quality is worsened in mid or low light condition. Performance is great, snappy, and without lag even for high performance gaming.
I don't find any issue, such as white line problem. Hope the future update won't bring any problems and make the camera have better quality.

mynameisjeff, 17 Jun 2017Just wanted to do an update since the purchase of my phone, it's been 2 weeks and my phone run... moreHey Jeff,.how is camera quality of zenfone 3 zoom both front and rear, and also know about that low light performance of cameras...
Just wanted to do an update since the purchase of my phone, it's been 2 weeks and my phone runs perfectly. No white lines, no problems, no nothing. I bought my Zenfone 3 Zoom at Fry's Electronics in Fountain Valley, CA and the battery is great, also the phone hasn't slowed down in speed after using it for awhile, that 625 ain't too bad after all, coming from an 821. Only difference I'd say that the 821 did better is smoother animations and gaming performance, along with some apps opening faster like the camera but nothing to cry a river about or really be waiting around for to load for.
