I got this phone in November after my old Samsung S4 mini tragically died, and just like many other people these days, I encountered problems with slow charging. So I starting freaking out about my battery's health (to the point I never charge it overnight anymore in order to avoid stressing it) and got myself new reinforced Anker cable. But yeah, it was only because of the heat (here in southwestern France we're experiencing temperatures like 30 or 35℃ in the afternoon). I think that's actually a pretty clever choice for improved safety. Kudos to Asus for making sure that their big phone battery doesn't overheat.
I got this phone in November after my old Samsung S4 mini tragically died, and just like many people these days, I've encountered problems with slow charging. Here in southwestern France we're experiencing temperatures from 30 to 35°C in the afternoon, so I'm glad to know that it's a normal thing that was implemented for security purposes, and not my battery's health already declining after less than a year of use. It's a good thing that I got worried though, as I decided to look up tips to increase a battery's longevity so now I'm almost never charging my phone overnight in order to avoid stressing the voltage.
This phone has super solution on camera and I can play Mobile Legends better and to avoid crashing games, we should keep the temperature low on the phone. The charging takes up to 3 hours my phone can keep up from 24 to 35 hours (including playing games, watching videos for 6hrs, surfing, texting and calling). Beware of watching via OTG because battery will drain faster. Remember it has a reverse charging features
This phone is good. I first had this phone since Nov 2017. However, on my first try connecting the internet and using the apps (e.g. Twitter, Google Maps), my phone is kicking me out from it so I just did the reset and it. I think I had that experience for 2 days even the split screen is not working right but after that everything went fine.
This is worse than zc550kl which had a plastic body. This one is metal and it is vad design. Every little impact is transferred to the so called gorilla glass screen. I have had its screen shattered twice in three months by falling from only about 1 feet onto wooden surface indoors. Asus will charge you everytime this ever breakable fragile thing falls. Avoid at all costs.
I bought this phone for less than 200 $ and I guarantee you, until 2019 / 2020 you won't find anything better for that price.
clem, 28 Jun 2018only after less than a year. now it's acting up. the softkeys doesn't work. already did a fact... moreReally?
My uptime is 40+ days, meaning that I had to restart it only once after buying it.
only after less than a year. now it's acting up. the softkeys doesn't work. already did a factory reset. so it must be the hardware itself. not worth it. plus..it's really slow.
yes, this phone is really good! battery is the best, is fast... this cheap for everything it does
mr:Unknown , 08 Jun 2018I'm planning to buys this phone. this is worth it?no
The battery is pretty good but not as good as expected of 5 000 mAh, lasts about 1,5-2 days with moderate snapchat and instagram usage. Bad glass, really easy to scratch and the processor is pretty slow. I mainly bought it because of the battery capacity but thought it would at least be somewhat fast. It was MUCH slower than a Galaxy S6 (the phone i had before) and was way worse buildquality-wise. Im really sorry to say that I'm disappointed in this phone mainly because the battery time isn't all that great after all, the phone is probably very power consuming since it has such a high capacity battery.
my phone screen has a brown points
when the temperature 40
My phone will burn if i donot stop it
Regret buying this phone only 4 months but already spoil 2 times no more asus phone
I stopped using it after 3 months occasionally missing calls sent it for repair came back with the same issue. Some calls going directly to voice mail no ring no log of call missing. Using T-Mobile same SIM working perfectly on my 2015 Huawei P8 Lite. Very sad because loved this phone.
