I have been using this phone for months...overall this phone works great especially the battery life...I can use this phone without charging for 2 days...the camera is great...you have to use manual mode to get greater picture especially in low light...phone's performance in running apps is smooth & no lag so far...
In negative side, white line appears at the bottom on the screen after few weeks using it after have been bought...I read the other users that have the same problem as they said after sending to ASUS service center the white line appears again after a week...so, I decided to continue using with the white line because it just a line at the bottom of the screen and not affecting the usage of the phone...but after a month, my display screen is not working with flickering problem and lines accross the screen until the screen is completely cannot display a thing! The touchscreen is working fine though..So, I managed to send it to ASUS service center and they replaced the LCD panel within 2 days...
Now, I have been using this phone again for a week since repaired...hopefully the screen issues not happen again...
mtt, 27 Jun 2017Just got nougat update today. No white line, no issues, and phenomenal battery life. Auto star... more"No white line" - you had and it disappeared or maybe you didn't have and it didn't appeared after update?
USA version has 3gb ram. I completely overlooked this since international has been released since Feb with 4gb and we recently got it a month ago. Not a deal breaker but a little disappointing when everything lists it as 4gb
Just got nougat update today. No white line, no issues, and phenomenal battery life. Auto start manager is a godsend for stopping background apps but make sure the things you need notifications for are turned on like email/messenger. Everything about this phone helps it just last longer imo especially coming from a Nexus 6p with a heavily degrading battery with 2hours sot
I bought zenfone 3 zoom white line appeared on Day 7 naturally they replaced it/ they should but after 2 mos white line appear again on the replacement unit zooming the cam is grainy and no stabilizer. So excited and loyal on asus but git disspointed
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.
