Hey guys don't waste your money on this phone Asus zenfone C its waste phone. Its battery drains Fast and this phone heat up everytime. While using chrome it stop music player.
Used it for 4 months, I give it 6.5/10, it has very poor camera, restarting quite often, heating, locking screen. I would prefer zenfone 4 which I bought 2 yrs ago and still love it, only problem is it doesn't have LED flash, and slow data rate but works quite fine.
In my words this is the worse mobile phone....many problems like hanging,heating etc. Many facts are there in this mobile don't bye this.

I don't know if that still available today.
Please dont buy this phone. Waste of money, too hanging,heating, this phone is very bad.please dont buy this model of asus .shame for asus
chetn, 11 Jun 2016It's been a year I am using this phone. Neglecting camera n 4gb internal the phone is good n w... morei have a solution for this.
yes, as a fellow Zenfone C user i experience this sorta trouble
still, its $96 phone. that is what happen when you buy something too cheap
what i did is
1st, upgrade your firmware to latest version
2nd, root it
3rd, get a really good SD Card (16GB Class 10 Recommended)
4th, Delete any bloatwares (this method save space and ram. also extended battery life)
5th, Install LSpeed (this can be pretty risky tho, but it's all worth it)
6th, Un Install any app that you don't need anymore
7th, Install Link2SD (this is so you can install so many apps on your phone)
8th, Install GL2SD (for gaming - move huge files to SD card. this works too well i had Asphalt 8, RR3, MC5 in this POS but, if you're resetting it download the big chunks first)
9th, enable developer option and set background process to "No Backgroud Process"
10th, Frequently Restart the phone (once in 2 days?)
For the camera, well i'm sorry the camera is actually pretty decent but it took bad pictures indoors. i hope this helps a lot.
HERES A TIP FOR ZEN C USERS
as you can see, my phone is actually pretty battery consuming (duh thats what everyone said at the comments) so, the solution is that try using nova launcher instead of a freakin zenUI launcher
Why did i do that? because its been a long time since i used the zenUI launcher and when i used it, the battery goes whoosh from 99% to 98% for like, under than 2 minutes
So, the conclusion is, the launcher itself is the power consumer and i would advice to disable Clean Master (i did disable it) and Google Play Service .
For all the peoples that want to buy this phone, its up to you guys

yash89, 23 May 2016Hello everyone.....Edison 657 is an awesome guy...By listening his advice and disabling google... moreIt's been a year I am using this phone. Neglecting camera n 4gb internal the phone is good n worthy the price. But asus should not compromise for such imp features though.
Now the problems that my phone is showing are:
1) heating issue
3) camera saturation
4) apps not responding many times
5) screen blackouts
Heating issue can be solved by uninstalling unwanted apps. Lagging too can be solved by resetting the device. When I regularly update app, the app not responding is also eliminated. But what broke my patience is blackouts. I used to play coc like for hours I can't count. N now I am not able to play it more than 5 mints. Also my keyboard is lagging. Wtf?? N camera saturation just f#@@d my life. Its has very poor front camera. I don't even understand its good to not a give a camera rather than ggivinga VGA. I mean what is the purpose of VGA nowadays. So I used to rely on rear camera only but now its also sucking. Although I can make video crisp n nice then why can't a photo?
Also if I open camera n take my first click with flash, the phone hangs n I have to restart the phone..!!! Plz guys if you have any solutions on this reply me..!!
this phone is nice but they haven't rolled out to lollipop itself..
Hello everyone.....Edison 657 is an awesome guy...By listening his advice and disabling google play store and googleplay services... The phone is working very nice... No lags, No heating and iam getting excellent battery backup....
Now Iam understanding that google play store and play services are the main draw backs for this phone's battery and performance
You can also extend the phone's battery by using default power saving mode
Once again Thanks to Edison 657....You just rock.....
i have long battery life with two simcard than 1 simcard.
edam, 03 May 2016Why my zenfone C just have 4gb internal storage and not 8gb ? Need more info ..4GB for system, like storage for installed apps
4GB for any files, like photos, music, videos, etc.
I have turn off the phone whenever I want to charge it..bcause it will get super hot as if its gonna explode if I didn't. But sometimes its okay to charge without turning off, but it will get lowbat much2 faster. Plus, I can't open any app when charging because it will hot that I have to turn it off and I'm afraid its gonna blow on my face. I honestly regret that I have bought this crap
This "phone", better said phony, is total a con, a swindle, stay away from it. I was lured by the Asus brand and I overlooked its cpu is an frail inept Atom. I own it for some time and I came to the conclusion that it has to be rooted, especially after the Android updates and the bloatware updates. The bloatware made the device go hot and unresponsive, killing the battery. I was missing calls I didn't know about because it was too busy heating up. After rooting and throwing the trash out it was kind of ok; kind of, because GPS navigation heats it up rendering the phone useless and unresponsive. I needed that navigation and I didn't get it. Finally, I replaced it with a crappy Archos (Quechua phone 5) that has a retarded jelly bean that requires 10 apps to do what an up to date Android does, but it works fine with all the apps I had in Zenfone plus some extra. All in one, this Zenfone is a shame for Asus and no self respecting person would be seen holding such crap.

Its OK for a low cheap phone but I play coc on it OK you just have to restart the phone if you play more than 3 hour and the pictures are OK but don't take too many the phone will hang
