I'm using the phone since 5 days. I have found that battery is more than sufficient. It lasts a day easily with heavy usage.

I am planning to upgrade my Honor 8 phone. But I am confused between Asus zenfone 5z and Poco F1. I am more into listening music and watching videos plus battery and camera is my priority. Someone please help me
Can anyone tell me how do I install Google camera on this phone after Pie update? Is there any link where I can download the application directly?
In india 6/64 GB is currently available for only INR 22000 or $310 and 2 days back I almost bought it for INR 30000 or $420 then thought something and cancelled the transaction.. feeling so lucky right now..

Classic 1221, 14 Feb 2019Bought 5z during OMG sale. A couple of thing i was worried about before purchasing this phone
... moreI actually simultaneously uses Zenfone 5z and Pocophone F1 side by side, both are 128GB version, both the price difference half year ago is around rs3,500, with the 5z being the more expensive one.
Yes, Zenfone 5z overall is a much better phone, complete with NFC, Widewine L1 support, proper glass back body, metal frame, more proper and louder stereo speakers, much better IPS LCD screen without bleeding, thinner and lighter, comes with quality ear bud, OIS camera, full support for 4G+ for all network in my region, much thinner chin, smaller notch.
Both share proper smartphone features such as Full HD plus screen, 3.5mm jack, micro SD slot.
Then Poco F1 has 20MP selfie camera, 4000mah battery, and liquid cooling, but lacking NFC, no widevine L1 support.
But of course, from day to day usage, both are almost similar in performance. Both ZenUI and MIUI are great, in MIUI I disable many of the ads feature, doesn't mind if ads appear in MIUI system apps such as the cleaner app, I only use Chrome Browser.
I think both are good to use, I use both as daily driver, and actually cannot fault both phone, both are great on their own, I bought 128GB micro SD for each of it.
As for the verdict, because at my region, Poco F1 has 64GB version that is cheaper, then would suggest get the Poco F1 if really budget constraint. As for 128GB version, then no doubt, should pay little extra to get the Zenfone 5z instead, simply Zenfone 5z offer much more than Pocophone F1, and is actually cheaper than Mi8 128GB for around rs4,000. (Mi8 128GB is rs7,000 more expensive than Poco F1 128GB).
Some might say Oneplus 6 is the better phone to go, well, Oneplus 6 128GB version half years ago with official warranty in my region is way more expensive than both smartphones for the same 128GB version.
(Pricing for ASUS Zenfone 5z 128GB version half year ago is around rs29,700, Pocophone F1 128GB version is around rs26,200, Oneplus 6 128GB version is around rs48,900)
I bought it in taiwan since july 3 2018 and after 7 months still in good shape no problem and after upgrade to Pie its getting better and better so far so good
Bought 5z during OMG sale. A couple of thing i was worried about before purchasing this phone
1. Zen UI is good ? Definitely not bad. Uninstalled/ Disabled all unwanted apps. Didn't like stock Gallery and File manager apps . Disabled them and installed Simple Gallery and ES explorer
2. Battery drain ? Feels ok to me . I'm getting 6+ hours SOT.
3. Zen UL is boring ? Kind off. I slapped Nova prime. It's good now. Some in built features like app lock comes handy.
4. Camera ? Even if not great for. 22 k this looks good. Im waiting for stable version of GCam for pie update.
5. Heating? For normal use i don't find any heating issues. Sorry i don't play games.
6. Network? WiFi good. Dual 4G good.
7. Should i buy ? For 22k i don't think any other phone offers so many features. Not a fan of Xiaomi. They have ads on their phones. So Poco doesn't interests me.
I have use zenfone 5Z few months, from 9/2018 until 2/2019, its smooth than others , if we want to compare the camera SPECIFICATION, that was have many opinion from others .Just choose what you want . as for me 256 rom 8gb ram was good for me to take photo ,video and keep.
