battery drained in 2hours after playing. 3hours charge 50% what a joke battery king
My opinion: It's a good phone, especially if you are a normal user. My example: Instagram + Pokémon Go + YouTube + Callings + Music + Typing Documents, at the end of the day my battery percentage is between 30 and 40. Camera is not the best, but works well. The sound is awesome for that kind of phone and system is decent (Oreo works worse than Nougat version, some crashes suddenly). If you are an older Asus user, all features and tools come from own Asus is there, works very well. Just an advice, that phone uses Mediatek processor, so when you use a lot your phone, it could became warm, it's normal. That is my experience with 5 months, I am a Brazilian user and my version has 3GB RAM, 32GB of storage, accept SD card expansion and 2 chips.
Anonymous, 28 Dec 2018any thoughts on the Oreo Update?still waiting for the update
There seems to be more bugs and random crashes from the default factory settings on Android 7.0. After having the phone pull the updated 8.1.0 - Oreo the system is running a lot more smoother. I am running a second line on the identical but Silver edition of this phone (Model ASUS_X018D 32Gb) It will not see the 8.1.0 update as available and the phone will crash randomly when in use. Applications freezes in the middle of usage, freezing behavior continues after multiple factory resets, I am submitting a return request for the Silver and try again on the Black edition of the phone.

After updating my to OS to OREO, the phone becomes laggy and the only game I am playing crashes a lot. Hope that ASUS will fix this mess immediately in the future update.
Louie, 10 Dec 2018You guys need to report the problem to Asus support for immediate fix action.Asus is active/fa... moreyes they are already working on it but the release of the fix is still due first quarter of 2019

Louie, 10 Dec 2018Pubg should be playable because of its dual graphics engine (T860 x 2) .Just dont crank up its... moreYou can just set the graphics option to low if the game does not run.This phone is not designed for gaming but it has very good features compared to other phone in its category. Its LTE data is very fast if LTE-Advanced is activated.I played also games in this cool phone and I enjoyed it.

test, 07 Dec 2018Can we play PUBG on this phone?Pubg should be playable because of its dual graphics engine (T860 x 2) .Just dont crank up its graphics setting because Pubg is very heavy graphical game. Network lag is also common in Pubg so one must have very good internet connection with low latency (Fast internet is not enough; Should have good latency as well)
Some people reported that this phone has lower performance in oreo system, true or not, expect Asus will provide and fix the issue very soon. Me, im playing other various 3D games with this nice phone with no problem.

after the upgrade to oreo 2 days ago, the phone became problematic. The cellular signal is erratic and totally useless when 4g is activated, the remedy was to select 3g on the preferred network settings. Also, the battery drain so fast even on stand by mode. Hope Asus release software update soon
