I am from Singapore. And I am a headphone dealer
I change phones regularly and my requirements are good ram, battery, space and screen size for regular movie watching
This phone allows memory card despite having 128gb memory which is rare and awesome. Many other phones only have max 64gb.
It has ear jack
Ar function is a plus point though I don't used it
Battery is small
Accessories are hard to find like case and tempered glass
It gets warm fast
Not many people familiar with this model
In short I think this is a good phone if battery was stronger.
I love this phone with its powerful Snapdragon processor and Google Project Tango supported. There are only a few phone that support this amazing Project Tango thats make AR capabilities higher than other phone thus make it the rare phone with powerful feature in the market. I gonna buy this phone when I have enough money. I hope it last longer in the market until 2030 so I didn't miss to have this rare high tech phone and become one of the person who lucky enough to have this amazing phone handy. When I have enough money, I will grab this phone quickly without looking for other phone. This is my dream!
davidtb823, 11 Dec 2017One gets the impression the 8/128 is a myth. Vaporware unavailable everywhere.I have 8/128gb. Dropped it quite a few times already (in an incipio case), not a scratch. In fact I've almost no complaints about it, just the battery life could be better, especially when you use Tango.
One gets the impression the 8/128 is a myth. Vaporware

This phone cannot receive a single knock.
Its glass cracks at the slightest knock.
Unless Samsung that can withstand hard knocks, this phone is so fragile that u have to basically best put it on a floor to use.
Hear my view: AVOID this phone. Its not worth the pain of quarreling with the Service Center which they will tell you your cracks are not under warranty and so we have to charge you a fee
Anonymous, 16 Nov 2017Does it have a LED notification light? FM Radio? VoLTE?Yes,it has Notification LED,VoLTE and FM radio.
A FB, 26 Aug 2017Who already use this phone? We need your opinion...plsI've had this phone since August with Verizon and its awesome. No complaints, super fast/smooth, great display, strong battery life. I also have a IP 7 Plus, G6 and a One Plus 3t.
Vonarian, 11 Aug 2017SD835 wasn't released.
NO,higher battery capacity will make this phone Unslim.9mm is good.
I... more9mm is already 'unslim'
extended battery life and waterproofing are the important things, and having a thin phone doesn't mean squat when you stick it in a thick protective case anyway.
This and lenovo phab2 pro support Tango . this phone is only that support google AR (tango) and google VR (daydream) which are there in flagship such as PiXel . moto z2 . s8 .... And abround ten other phones
Hyacin, 14 Sep 2017The specs here claim FM Radio - and I think I found *one* Asus site that says the same - Phili... moreI've found in the past with ASUS that the FM radio is restricted to only certain countries. Depending on the firmware it's running, it may be blocked unless you can install possibly the European version which I've found in the past to unlock the FM radio ability on my old padfone X. I always find it strange when hardware is installed only to be disabled for no apparent reason, what a waste of technology.

Headphones. Basically you still need an antenna such as headphones. Problem is that most people use Bluetooth.
The specs here claim FM Radio - and I think I found *one* Asus site that says the same - Philippines I think, but no other Asus sites seem to claim it.
I've tried a number of FM Radio apps and all of them claim the FM Radio is not enabled ... the Asus app for previous Zenfone versions does not work on the AR.
Has anyone got FM Radio working?
TJIANG, 13 Sep 2017Look at Samsung A9 Pro batteryExcuse me, I am talking about HIGH-END SMARTPHONES, that is a midranger smartphone. "HIGH-END SMARTPHONES", not midrange smartphones
I own two of these phones personally. camera is fantastic. you can get much closer small objects and focus quickly. speed is beyond any iphone, or crapware android IE: LG, samsung, google, ect. (motorola being the exception). screen is awesome, and comes with a blue filter "night mode" to keep your eyes from killing you at night. everyone wants to know about battery life im sure, its a 3300mah. not bad. if you run it hard, like any phone itll die quickly. it supports speed chargers, and typical usb c lower amp ones. id suggest a decent speed charger from verizon, and get a braided cable from cable creation on amazon due to its stock cable being SHORT and thin. strong dislike for it. but for 8$ you can get two very nice ones off amazon. WORTH IT.
not a fan of the stock keyboard. i uploaded googles stock keyboard. they are similar, but google is better arranged imo.
