Beware: you can either add a second SIM card OR a SD card. This is what it means by "use SIM 2 Slot).
Just purchased ZenFon zoom at BestBuy. For some reason it does not support dual band WiFi. Cannot find my ....-5G access point. Also screen is blinking when taking photos. Effect like you see the computer screen on TV.

Although its gonna take a while though. But I think Asus gave out a memo about zenfone 3 zoom about the flickering white line at the bottom, they will replace ur fone with a new one.

That Price Range is a 3GB ram/32 GB rom Model
Is this phone 3GB or 4GB of RAM? Amazon is showing it as $329 3GB of RAM. Anyone who purchased through Amazon who can confirm please? Thanks.
my asus zenfone 3 zoom frame is warping around the volume button. It keeps popping up like the adhesive is coming loose
Hi i am.from baguio city phil i also have the white line on my phone can you tell me what i should do should i go to.the nearest service center to have it replacw?
does it have an IR Blaster ? Asus website says it has.. I'm fans of IR Blaster for remote control my TV, audio, etc..
Anybody tried using in the dark room. At lowest brightness, anything black, looks a bit reddish.. Not pitch black.
I can run video, 20+ hrs.
Camera great, almost no shutter lag.
Problem is with the display.
Also got white line after a week.
I also recommend doing software updates after purchasing the unit. I noticed that there's almost 700mb software update pending after my father purchased the unit. Also, There's a lot of software updates that fixes and updates the camera app's U.I. Once you are connected to the internet, go to settings, scroll down til you see "System updates" then tap "Check update".

try clearing partition cache: https://www.asus.com/zentalk/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=11549&extra=page%3D1 and also do a factory reset after proper backup.

I hope this will fix the white line issue until Asus fixes it with an update.
That's right you need to disable it in the developer menu. Keep us informed if it works for your device, also how it effects the stand by time and performance. Thanks.

I ... moreSo I just have to enable / turn on developer options, then set "Disable HW overlays" to off? Instead of just turning off the developer options? Because I just unlocked the developer options and I was that by default, all features in there are switched off. Btw, thanks for all the infos.
Ethicst, 16 May 2017As I understand, you can only disable hw overlays only after you enable developer options. I ... moreWithout a hardware overlay every application that is displaying things on the screen will share video memory and will have to constantly check for collision and clipping to render a proper image, this can cost a lot of processing power. With a hardware overlay each application gets its own portion of video memory, getting rid of the need to check for collision and clipping.
Disable it and the latency period for applications and the OS (any OS, not just Android) itself to render things will go way way up because it has to check to make sure it's not screwing with memory that is supposed to be dedicated to another task than its own. Hardware overlay ensures everyone has their own partition of memory so they don't have to do those checks and so latency to render things on the screen decreases dramatically.
If you're a windows user, it's typically done through using Directx. Linux desktops do it through the X Window System + OpenGL.
So if you disable it, theoretically you will lose processing power quite a bit, probably some stand by time. But the flickering and white line issues will be gone hopefully. You can still disable it afterwards. We still need practical experiences from the owners of the phone.
Let us know the results, battery up time etc.
