Jason, 17 Sep 2014Asus Zenfone Hand On Experience with regret big time Advantage
- looks appealing
- ... moreI suggest you get your ears checked as before this i had the LF 4x HD and this one is louder then that Phone and that Phone was normal vollume wise.
And ofc the zenui is Always on its the launcher nothing else.
The launcher does not behave any different to any other Phone.
and battery live is excelent. you can get 7 hours screen on easely and with some tweaking 8,5 hours is doable if you watch a lot of video and photos.
Weather app does not use any battery while active if you tell it not to auto sync.
and this Phone has the least useless apps of any devicei had in my hands. maby you just havent found the use yet.
Some seem useless but ar for wifi derect or miracast or notes.
the overly simplefied looks make them seem useless they should ahve used better icons.
once again contacts is Always on but it doesnt seem to do anything.
and not sure where you live but here its clearly sold as 4.3 with a confirmed update to kitkat.
Learn how to use phones before you simply badmouth a fine fone.
and if you take the price into consideration its actualy excelent as i spend 194 euro for the 32 gb model. no other Phone with that specs come near it they are all atleast 100 more.
I can't connect to Internet using airtel sim.
Haven't tried on other sim cards. Like Vodafone or idea. Bsnl works on 2g.
If any one had past experience please comment.
I'm unable to log on to Internet using airtel sim. I'm not sure if anyone has had previously discussed about the same. Have not tried using idea or Vodafone.
If any one had faced similar issues please advise
Asus Zenfone Hand On Experience with regret big time Advantage
- looks appealing
- Fast processor with bigger RAM and 16GB Memory
- A lot of functional programs as a smartphone
- Low tone speakers you can barely hear ringing
- ZENUI is unnecessary and is always on = battery draiin
- AccuWeather App cannot be turned off = Battery drain
- A lot of useless apps but only 2000mah battery it should have 3500mah atleast to support the apps
- ZenUI Contacts phonebook is realible but the program eats your battery and is always ON
- Android Jelly Bean with a misleading ad of android kitkat which is still unknown when the update will arrive...
Verdict = Bad Battery, Too many unnecessary apps which cannot be uninstalled causing battery drain, bad speakers... not worth buying since it can barely reach a full day with normal use
Sotong, 16 Sep 2014What I know...Asus originally released this phone with Atom Z2580 at 2.0GHz & priced it mo... morethese stupid inhell soc's are so power hungry...i downclocked mine to 1.866 and then now to 1.6 to have more batt life. the stupidest decision ever made by asus...x86 32nm vs arm 28nm...it's just stupid.
hello there....wana ask about the One-handed Operation on this Zenfone 6...is it configurable to be permanent mode or it can be enable/disable whenever the user wants?...
lulz, 15 Sep 2014i bought my zenfone 6 2 days ago i checked the spec with CPUZ, the chipset cpu is intel Atom Z... moreWhat I know...Asus originally released this phone with Atom Z2580 at 2.0GHz & priced it more by USD 40 or 50. Then they stopped and released only the Atom Z2560 with 1.6GHz & priced it slightly lower. No idea why the change in a slightly slower processor.
can anyone tells if compare to sony xperiaz ultra.is this zenfone 6 ok?
i bought my zenfone 6 2 days ago i checked the spec with CPUZ, the chipset cpu is intel Atom Z2560/1.6ghz. anyone have the same spec with me?
zenfonww, 11 Sep 2014Dear mr.zenfon prob... I had the same problem.. the file of 1.18 update does not do anything a... morei think you misunderstood me. i said i uninstalled the default app before and that's why it wasn't updating...then i reinstalled the default browser and that enabled me to update over the air ota which onlt took about 700mb i think. the reason in my opinion was that the new firmware includes updates for existing default apps and the thing won't run because of missing default apk or some of its files...
V, 14 Sep 2014Can anyone confirm if Zenfone 6 has dual standby and dual active or just dual standby? &qu... moreyes i was buy this phone, and reality is not bad to personal and normal use. Act for network system is dual micro GSM standby and just 1 Network can be used.. include if u got wirreless connection just for 1 network beside 2 micro GSM standy and 1 Wi-fi priory is Wi-fi, if Wi-fi off, Sim slot 1 is Priory Network and u can disable sim slot 1 to use network provider in sim slot 2.

&qu... moreIts dual stanby.
Dual active is rubbish as it needs a second pair of everything draining poer faster.
And the radio is the biggest drainer in every Phone.
over 75% of the power drain comes from the 2g/3g radio directly or indirectly (android keeping the connection alive)
I have my lg 4x hd with a cracked screen next to me and it lasts normaly 3 days with 2 hours screen on during that time (2g+wifi mode) and everything else off.
Now i have 2g disabled its lasting over 10 days on a single charge with the same 2 hours screen on.
less then 2% drain a day!
personaly dual active is only usefull if you get a absolute bargain on contracts and we all know that never happens. i disaled the second sim of this zenfone with root as its pointless.
