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).

Awesome phone!!! It's low spec-nice price, but auto-start manager and several other good tools integrated in the phone with root rights make the phone perform really good and having it customisable in an awesome way! Only problems that I guess they will fix in software update are with playing music and screen flicker just after unlocking. In short - phone having all good features that otherwise require rooting of the phone, now work without rooting it.
