Earlier this afternoon I had it updated. Or more like I took the risk. The last update sucks. No offense ASUS but it was a total disappointment. The camera became slow and the exposure is unreasonably unbalanced and amidst its sharp photos, it's still disappointing. So yeah,I took the risk of still updating it.
So far, I read the review mostly for the camera. Indeed, the auto focus in the back camera is amazing. Sharp and fast. And the depth of field is a thumbs up. The front camera is a BIG NO. It needs to focus TWICE and face detection is sloooooowwww. And its quite frustrating because the name itself, Selfie, was not justified. Please see this through.
BOTTOM LINE, the system is smoother now (and I hope this is not only for the record of first impression) and I am still figuring out what are the major changes that is going to be useful other than additional useless application in which surprisingly, unlike the last update, is non-existent. Can you give me a list?
Great job ASUS! I am still looking forward for great, useful updates in more days to come. God bless.
PS: Don't forget the list of major changes. Thank you.

I have Asus zenfone Selfie (2gb, 13gb) model ASUS_Z00UD Android Version 5.0.2. I buyed this mobile three months ago. I had installed only few apps mostly used fb, whatsapp, etc. Problem is, When I use camera phone works very very slow. I use to restart regularly after i use camera. But the pics i capture is performing good. But the only problem is my phone performs slow and hangs when i use camera.
Please suggest so that the phone performs better.

Yes i have same problem when attempting the jio free offer. I tired uninstall/install the Jio app multiple times but i could not see option. Hopefully they will offer preview offer without code :) i registered my number in Reilaince Digital. Let me update you after 2 days.
It really depends on how you use your phone, depends on the apps. Cause sometimes there are apps who really drains your battery and still running even if you exit them. So you have to stop them manually on your settings to save battery. This phone is really good for me. LG user before, but this Asus Selfie (403 ppi pixel density) has better resolution. And LG phone doesnt have Gyro, if you're a fan of VR games using VR Box. Just the battery drain fast if youre using lot of apps and games and data. But you can use powerbank, highly recommend. You dont have to based everythin on the opinions that you read. Go and try it for yourself, go to mobile stores and try the model unit. I already compare this phone to Oppo F1 Selfie. Oppo has a low resolution, almost half of the Asus. And to a specific Sony Xperia phone, cant remember the unit. Its good but it was expensive for me. Cant afford to buy a so expensive phone if there's one who is much cheaper and almost same specs. Thats all, thanks :)
Lets respect other opinions :)
i've bought this zenfone selfie for about 9 month and updated it to android marshmallow 6.0. after the updated to MM several improvement are sight, like the proximity sensor now very sensitive, several bloatware are gone that makes the phone more smooth.

Camera sure is awesome especially under daylight, moreover if you learn the manual mode, but might not work as good under low light condition - good for its price though
Facebook, messenger, etc - never had a problem
Battery - would last 7 - 8hrs for light usage(sms, few calls, quick fb)
- for extensive gaming (pokemon go with 4G data always turned on) would last 4hrs
Hence, its just average. I always keep a power bank since i play games or would you rather check the zenfone max series.
Good luck with your choice
for god's sake don't you update this Zenfone; it disabled so many good aps and gave lot of trouble. first the language changed; sms became corrupted; ringtone was lost; some other useful apps like mirror etc were lost.
