My Zen6 phone likes to disable the sims (ie no signal on both) - and requires a reboot to re-enable - so its not really a reliable phone.
I also get the random reboots - no big deal, its probably fixing my sims when it does it.
I'm buying some other phone.
KokGituh, 10 Feb 2015Dont buy this phone, battery sucks!
Try xiaomi redmi note, lower price same performance bette... moresorry but the redmi has:
- a smaller screen
- worse camera module even tho its also 13 MP the optics are worse
- less bands availeble so not working in many countrys so be VERRY aware of your countrs networks are supported.
- less storage as its only a 8gb Phone where the zenfone comes in 16 and 32 gb aswell.
and battery life according to gsm arena is way worse then zenfone 6 !
i get atleast 8 hours but up to 10 hours out of my battery (screen on time.
Where according to these charts the redmi doesnt even get to 6 hours.
zizo, 08 Feb 2015i want to buy one
can you help me which country i can buy from it
am from middle eastDont buy this phone, battery sucks!
Try xiaomi redmi note, lower price same performance better battery life!
Alas, 05 Feb 2015Did someone successfully change their font style on asus zenfone 6?Yes it os.. but only one sim card can active data.. the other one can text and rcvd call at the same time
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2015What a corny answer bout battery life.....sounds like its the protocol to answer when people s... moreThere is not a single Phone in the world that can game and not have a severe impoct on battery life its a hard reality.
Heck even tablets wont last long with even bigger batterys.
and movie viewing is fine i can easely watch 7 hours of movies.
people expect to much.
yes you can play a game but it will have consequences for battery life.
fact is that this phones battery is really good and will easely last 8 hours screen time and 2 days standby with normal usage (gaming is not normal usage!)
people come here and say battery no good no backup which are first of pointless terms then they go blame people that have tested propperly and know what thephone is capable of to work for asus... on my last LG Phone i had almost double the battery life of the people that werent capable of managing the Phone and they also said i worked for lg... i need to get my payments soon as so far they all havent payed me a penny i just speak facts nothing else.
if people want help with there Phone they need to start spilling details rather then just complain about battery life which infact might be fine but ruined by their usage pattern or crappy apps.
so spill it screen brightness, gps usage, wifi quality and version, data signal quality , 2g? 3g? , usage, which apps are installed,whats your screen on time? and post screenshots so we can verify this and see whats happening. dont complain with no information it shows you have no clue nore want actual help.
theres lots of positive reviews so the ones that arent positive clearly are doing something wrong and theres many people willing to help but you cant help the unwilling.
so if you want hep spill details if not stay away as your posts are useless and do not help the community.
guess thats a bad thing about Phone arena not needing people to sign in all trolls come out of the woods.

naveen, 08 Feb 2015am using zenfone6 wen I am using net within 5mns my mobile getting so hot....and it's battery ... morefactory reset and test without any software installed you most likely have bad software installed. phones do get hot its just a reality but not harmfull unless your a snowman.
the Phone is great unless you screw it up.
Alas, 08 Feb 2015My Z6 android version is kitkat...i bought it last month n when i check the version..its alrea... morethats bollox as soon as asus releases lollipop you can update.
the only possible way you cant do this straight update is if your Phone show screwed with the Phone.
Alas, 08 Feb 2015My Z6 android version is kitkat...i bought it last month n when i check the version..its alrea... moreZenfone 6 has 2gb of RAM , 16gb internal storage and actually has FM radio built-in.Strengths are : Cheap for a hi end specs phone, runs warm even on heavy 3d games , sturdy built ( feels heavy and thick like a tank with strong and tight headphones Jack and USB connector= heavy duty ), fast, constantly updates system and apps from Asus, screen mirroring,DLNA,huge battery,and the best part is the superb sound quality using good headphones.
Weakness: Very slow charging...slow like a snail,screen not bright enough in daytime, lots of pre installed bloatwares,speaker not as loud as others.
Oh...I've dropped this heavy phone 5 times and nothing bad happened !. It's a brick.
am using zenfone6 wen I am using net within 5mns my mobile getting so hot....and it's battery backup also less do not buy this mobile.....I hate this ducking mobile
