Sanat Naik, 11 Aug 2016I want 2 buy ths phone,how is the phone frnds ?I owned this phone for a month now. It is a good phone for its price because it runs smoothly and the battery drains up to whole day while I'm connected to a wifi. Some of its pre-installed applications from asus can't be update because it says "This app is incompatible with your device." The apps that can't be update are messaging, camera, Gallery, Calendar, ZenUI Dialer and Contacts, and Asus Weather etc. The camera is good for outdoor while it has many noise when capturing an image in low light/indoor. The internet browsing is fast using the browser/opera mini. Sometimes the albums on my gallery is missing and the music will force close. I'll clear the data of the gallery and music then reboot the phone.
After using the device for a long time it will heats up at the back in the rear camera part. I notice that the notification led only work when the device is charging and not for receiving notifications. As of now I don't have major problems encountered while using this phone. I can say that What You Pay is What You Get.. :)
Sanath, 12 Aug 2016I have ths phn how i turn off predict(keybord) ?Hi. I owned this phone and it's really a good phone for its cheap price. When you open it for the first time it is hard to set-up the phone settings to your liking. To turn off the Next Word Prediction you need to follow these steps:
1. Go to Settings
2. Language and Input
3. ZenUI Keyboard
4. Advanced settings
5. Uncheck the Next Word Prediction

AnonD-395962, 02 Aug 2016im from indonesia too,, Asus Zenfone ZB452KG support Compass ? thx.. Yes, it supports compass
the phone heats up quite easily , and had some instances where it turned off in the middle of use . i need help with this , im afraid it might get worst , .
I recently used the item and it is the most affordable price smartphone i've ever bought. A smartphone that's probably not the best, but again it is very charming and powerful compared to other brand with the same price. I'm only spent IDR 885.000 (about USD 70) to get this phone. There's something about the design that I find interesting.. SH - Magelang Indonesia.
asusfanboy4twenty, 14 Jul 2016I'm using this phone right now after being forced to sell my previous ZF2 Laser due to urgency... moreSo, lemme answer:
1) Yea, colors go messy when looking from over top edge, otherwise its clear from all sides.
2) Simply let it charge 15-20 minutes when LED is green. Probably all phones have the "issue" with first 5% of battery, when it gets drained very fast, its due overcharging protection which shows you the battery is full while in reality it's around 95%, so you wont overcharge it.
3) AFAIK its problem with Android 5.1 itself, it was reported on other phones also.

Simply put, this phone is the best for its price, sure it's not meant to be compared with its bigger brothers but it's not something you'll find from other big brands
Althought some things do bug me:
1.) Just last night after I purchased it I noticed the screen is not IPS as the viewing angle is not perfect in landscape (I'm pointing at the right side of the screen when holding the phone landscape which shows its weakness), I hope it's not just me or else it might be a factory fault
2.) I also noticed that when charging the battery it's not as fast as the ZF2 Laser, it took some time to charge from 99% to 100% while it lasted in mere seconds to drain to 99% or even 98%, but below that it lasts as long as advertised
3.) For some reason the GPS/location symbol is always shown even if I've turned it off, I hope it's not a problem
I seriously hope anyone responds regarding those three bugging things because I really want to use it in long-term :'(
Please confirm if the led notification is only working during charging
I already used it for 1 month for calls, social media and some internet surfing.
Pro: Surprisingly superb battery life for Android; Whatsapp + BBM + moderate internet surfing can last two days from full charge. Great performance for it's price range. Some bloatware are useful and some can disable/uninstall. Great display brightness and color. and VERY VERY CHEAP.
Cons: Weird power button and volume button places. Heavy and thick; bulky inside pocket. Poor side view display (good enough for me). Keyboard is a little bit small for big fingers. No headphone in box (had to buy 1).
