When you guys are talking about the white line, is it just one thin line at the top of you're screen? Is it thick? Is it making the phone barely usable? Does it block everything? I just want to know if it covers up the entire screen or just one line at the top or bottom.
Adam, 31 May 2017After patch in the Asus New Update the white line keep appearing. I suspect Asus screw up this... moreI guess the white line issue is due to the recent software update but i cant rule out hardware issue. Been using my zenfone 3 zoom for about a month now, and maybe just a week after the latest software update and it was just on June.01 when those friggin white lines appeared

Calli, 31 May 2017We bought 2 asus. 1 had white line issue. We changed screen 4 times but still white line issue... moreScreen replacement 4 times? Even the worst worst worst quality smartphone is just need 1-2 times sceeen replacement
Been using for 7 weeks. No white line issue. Bought mine in the Philippines (4G ram, 64gb variant).
long battery life, lasts up to 2 days (about 4hrs gaming and about 8hrs all other wifi activities per day). up to 3 days when playing just about 1hr a day.
great for daily picture taking, although picts are a bit noisy and soft when zoomed 100%, white balance is also a bit warm. But overall quality is great.
GPS lockup is about 3secs. Great for offline GPS apps and turn-by-turn assist is accurate (I use HERE WeGo app for offline navigation, data connection not needed but of course you can't see traffic condition). Waze also works great.
Was able to achieve 80mbps internet speed in area with strong 4G signal (got 4G+ sign).
Loudspeaker for music and videos I think is loud. I don't have any other phone to compare with but I think the quality is great as well. Although sound is barely audible when volume is about 50%. Put the volume to 75% and up to appreciate the sound (both loudspeaker and headset).
Call quality is great however I think volume is soft even at maximum.
Which model is concerned by the white line problem?
I am about to buy the zoom S french version (128gb, 4gb ram)... now I hesistate...
We bought 2 asus. 1 had white line issue. We changed screen 4 times but still white line issue. We fought with asus service center at laat time then they replaced. We didn't open box and sold out to someone else with lower price. Another phone had no white line issue but we didn't use protector case and dropped to ground, lcd broken. Paid asus for lcd and changed screen. Before broken lcd no white line issue but after changed lcd we had white line issue with new phone also. Wtf is this crap phone from asus. They made a crap phone and couldn't fix problem yet and still in mass production. I dunno other models of asus but %100 sure i suggest you to keep away from this phone. Totally crap wasting money..

Now seeing the white line after two weeks. I've had two asus devices prior to this, and got my mom a Zenfone 3 Max. This is the most disappointing.
If you do not want stress, do not get the Zenfone 3.
Is the white line issue due to a hardware issue or software issue. Is it safe to buy an unlocked US zenfone 3 zoom feom amazon.
