Where are you from?
Does anyone experienced lately the drop in the sound of the bottom firing speaker? I tried restarting the phone a couple times and the issue wasn't resolved. I tried checking system update and it doesn't have any. Been loving this phone since I bought it in June and one of the key selling point when I first saw this was the ultimate loud speaker and now it has issues.
This is my second Zenfone after the trustworthy Zenfone 3 (ZE520KL) that I used years ago. To compare with, it's a great upgrade overall. Here's my quick review & opinion.
+ Very very good overall built quality. Love the back burst effect.
+ Good camera combination (wide + ultra-wide)
+ Dual Pixel give fast AF (although not the fastest in its class)
+ Very very good battery life (I'm not heavy user, mainly on WhatsApp, FB, YouTube & browsing)
+ Great bright display (very pleasing to eye and it's not as "striking" as AMOLED)
+ VERY VERY VERY loud speaker output !
+ Fast charging
+ FM Radio ;)
+ 3.5 Audio Jack!!
+ Overall optimization is very very good. Unlike some other makers got minor issues e.g. notification delay/missing, touch inaccuracy/lag, gps lock problem & etc which is quite annoying for daily usage even though not major.
Now the minus points are (don't get me wrong, this is personal opinion)
- Camera on ultra-wide is not as good compared to LG G6/V30.
- Manual Mode no Focus Peaking like LG G6/V30 which is very very useful.
- Although Dual Pixel, focusing not as fast nor as good compare to my great old Galaxy S7 Edge.
- Dynamic range could be better!
- Quite noisy on Low Light environment but still at usable side :)
- NFC a little weird to work with when sharing files with other device (not sure why, maybe it's just my unit)
- Not much accessories for it due to its less popularity among the other makers.
- Finger reader is decently fast but not blazing fast compare to others.
- Stereo a bit off but is ok, the Main Speaker already loud enough ;)
Cheers everyone ;)

Android Consultor, 12 Nov 2018About the battery life, it is good or not?After use of 4 .months find battery life is not good
Android Consultor, 12 Nov 2018About the battery life, it is good or not?My Zenfone 5 ZE620KL can last all day and still has some percentage of battery at night. But you have to charge the phone at night. So it has good battery life for 3,300 mAh. I think Asus has put a software optimization on this phone. Overall this phone is good, perhaps one the best Midranger.

Got a few hairline scratches. And accidentally dropped it on gravel once. Screen got full of scuffs. Which is really annoying af.
PS. Bought mine in a legit Asus store so wouldn't call if fake based on the quality.
i have this phone and you do get updates. its a great phone the only thing that lets it down is the front facing camera is not very good for selfies
joshua214, 29 Oct 2018This is such a fake news.Have you checked videos on YouTube regarding how strong the build of this phone is? It's actually really strong that it can endure such bending test and it can withstand scratches upto level 7. I have this phone and it doesn't have any single scratch. It even fell one time without a case and to my surprise it didn't scratch the phone both front and back. It only damaged the aluminun sides slightly. 😀
