Anonymous, 15 Jul 2019Have you tried a different SIM in the phone? Or getting a replacement sim? Yes, tried 4 SIMs, different carriers. My colleague is also facing the same issue. We were very excited when we bought it but now this seems to be the biggest joke =(
Feedback after 2 weeks usage.
The Asus Zenfone 6/6z CANNOT:
1. Make phone calls
2. Take low light photos
3. Focus while shooting in slow motion
4. Last 15 mins of gaming or video without getting unbearably hot (>60 degrees)
5. Get through 1 full day of battery usage on single charge, with day starting at 9am.
qa, 12 Jul 2019I was planned to buy one.......give up now. Still cant get one in the North America market. ... moreThats becouse the phone will be available until the 17th Juli in north america, (in about 2 days!) its not released yet
Have a sinking feeling of wasted my hard earned money. I am not able to make calls with this device despite getting full network connectivity. Only connects voice calls 2/10 times and when the call is connected I am unable to hear the other person. Disabling Outdoor mode makes no difference at all as all I can hear is noise. I have tried this at different locations (workplace, home, friend's place) before registering a complaint with retailer. Hope I get a refund.
Those who have earpiece issue,please disable sync volume and outdoor mode,then your problem will be solved 😊
stock is really low. Please we want it here in Philippines. I will wait until August. If there is no stock until august i will just buy Samsung A80.
When do you release the Asus Zenfone 6 here in the philippines? so disappointing
HelderMF, 10 Jul 2019Can anyone confirm that this call issue with very distorted sound (because of the speaker bein... moreThis isasue seems to be only in India. Asus india has mentioned software alteration done for Indian variants.

Still cant get one in the North America market.
Preorder starts at 12am ET, Thu Aug 01
at B&H Photo in US
(ASUS online store may be earlier, check it in coming days)
It is usual, that some markets starting months later (or never lol).
Gearbest/ China-shops offer Asian version (model B at ASUS), so limited 4G Bands support for EU and US!
Demand is much higher, than supply, so some retailers asking over list price.
I still do not know a better option in this price range ...
so You can suggest some phones with
- full-screen (without any disturbing things, like notch & co.)
- flagship SoC,
- 3,5mm audio out,
- color notification light,
- 3 card-slots and
- at least 5000mAh battery
This is only a WiFi-tablet and not a phone. You cannot make calls with this device at all. 4G and 3G reception are non existent. Indian retailers are not accepting returns and consumer complaints are piling up! Also, night time camera is bad with flash not working.

Gearbest is selling it on $549 for 64gb Model which is 50$ higher than MSRP, and not sure it is global model.
I was the best phone for me when it first released, but now I can find better option after 2 month
Question about wifi6 do you have a number indicating the type of connected wifi Network?
A very good quality phablet but too expensive price...unaffordable for budget les people.More than 90 % worldwide people.Comment based on gsmArena specification and its disclaimer.Dearest Asus . Why so unaffordable , 60 % extra price....PA !?

Amazon DE list pre-order for ZF 6 with higher price now.
Original asus-collection Stand Case launched in Europe.
2 months since this phone was announced and stock is really low (no left at all store I checked: us, eu, asia), nicely done asuck. The phone is nice but it's better if user can buy it. When will it be released in SEA?
Unable to make calls. It's not the call quality but the phone hangs when trying to make a call. As a result, you can only accept but not make any. Also the camera Flash timer is off - it fires 2-3 seconds after the photo is taken which makes it unusable and often embarrassing in public.

viano, 10 Jul 2019The big issue seems to be at you.
Can t you check reviews and user opinions?
Some noisy ... moreThere is in fact a problem, even if you choose to ignore it. Many people are reporting this issue.
Until now, from the feedback that I gathered, this problem seems to be affecting only the Indian variant of the phone which has VoLTE enabled for the calls. The european users that gave feedback are reporting good call quality but without VoLTE support.
Different things could be happening here:
1-the different variants could be using different speaker hardware integrated in the FlipCam, explaining the difference in audio quality;
2-VoLTE is capable of reproducing a wider range of sound frequencies which, in theory, greatly improves the call quality (such as VoiceHD codec over some 3G operators) but in practice could be causing the distortion if the speaker is unable to handle them, especially the lower tones which causes more vibrations;
3-software/implementation bugs. Maybe some incompatibility issues with some operators are happening;
4-All of the above :P
In conclusion, if the speaker hardware is the same for all phone variants, and the problem becomes apparent by using VoLTE, this issue can eventually spread to other countries when Asus adds VoLTE support for more carriers.
This is truly an amazing phone, but I prefer to wait a bit longer to see how this plays before spending my hard-earned money.
