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.
My fiance originally had the note 5 then switched to this phone. She had a few complaints about it but nothing to do with the phone, only user comfort issues(button placement, OS, Etc.) Now she rants and raves about this phone. It takes some amazing pictures, clear speaker, and have not run into any power issues. If you are debating getting this phone, STOP! just get it! its worth it!
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2017An extremely good phone. With it's AR & VR feature, 5 magnet speaker, Super AMOLED display... moreSD835 wasn't released.
NO,higher battery capacity will make this phone Unslim.9mm is good.
IP certification too,higher thickness will make this phone ugly.
it's so beautiful with it's Ultra Slim body and it's Cameras.
And a leather-like body can give us a good touch sense of it's back.
ASUS has a good reason for not using SD835.
An extremely good phone. With it's AR & VR feature, 5 magnet speaker, Super AMOLED display, Liquid cool tech, 8GB with 256GB ROM & a super primary camera this phone really packs the punch but there are certain features which it lacks like the fact that it has Snapdragon 821, they do claim that Snapdragon 821 is customised for Tango but Snapdragon 835 can be made it for Tango, the front camera is merely 8MP with 2.0 aperture (no flash) while considering today's trend the front camera should have been at least 20+16MP camera with 1.7 & 2.0 aperture and LED flash, ASUS Zenfone AR is quad core not octa core which is extremely shocking, the battery should have been 4010 mAh considering that it does AR & VR & lastly the phone is not IP68 certified which is the major setback considering it's price
goancea, 09 Aug 2017It doesn't have the best processor. 821 instead of 835. For me this is a drawback. Yes it's not good,but SD835 wasn't released when asus started this phone.

This phone has some outstanding specifications and the design looked great.
But isn't it a bit over priced
~649$ and it isnt IP Certified !!! :-(
the phone has everything but looks like its bit overpriced,
Is it water and dust resistant
AnonD-687308, 26 Jul 2017Would have been better without the ASUS logo in front of the fon.What?
ASUS logo is making it beautiful.
When are we going to get a review of this phone please as it ticks just about all of the boxes for me.
