I I was a very surprised that this phone has ant+ sensor! It is not noted in the description, but I installed ant+ software and checked. I connected all my ant+ sensors to Strava and very happy :-) I've been using this phone for 2 years and I'm very satisfied. Camera is not good in the dark, but in the normal daylight conditions camera is good enough to take a good picture.
Has been using this phone for 2 years. It is still alive and kicking although i accidentally drop it to the floor with its screen facing down.. almost everyday. I really love this phone, its like bullet proof. (Ofcourse, i have tempered glass and jelly case on)
I understand that it is not a perfect phone though. Here are my issues with it:
1. Cannot use it while charging - it lags a lot
2. Whenever we have a video chat, my face deforms a little on the video (especially in the corners), like its lens is built from fish eye.
3. Heavy phone
4. Camera in low light is so bad, like you have to wait until it detects and brighten up the object to capture.
Those are just my issues. But it didnt bother a lot since i am not a camera-geek.
After completing 2yrs with ZC550KL, fully satisfied with thw product. Weight is the only drawback of this model, rest all specs are good to this price and especially gorilla glass 4 is the best thing in this phone. I m very casual user droped this phone 5, 6 times fron 5 feet, and it just resists it compleately. Best value of money..

Hey asus is good phone
But problem comes when volte doesnt works out
For that u should watch youtube vudeo and download the firmware from OOFICIAL ASUS WEBSITE ONLY.
Bcz the asus R & D department is so slack that they dont provide u will necesaary update
ASUS R & D department is doing what?,if u people works like this,ur going to loose the market soon.
Been using Asus Zenfone Max 2 for 11 months and no issues so far aside from the 5 hours charging time. Battery is good. Camera is great and doesn't lag. Loving Asus. ❤❤❤
This so-called phone is not worth more than a basic keypad mobile because it is not reliable in performing basic functions like dialing and answering calls. After two months of usage, the software crashes every now & then and hangs consistently while trying to make or receive calls. Anyone calling to this phone always hear busy tones. Attempting call to a contact comes back with the dialing screen minutes after placing the call. Many more issues to report. I would not recommend this phone/asus brand even to my enemies.
