Have used the 3 GB version for about 2 days now. the highlight is certainly the selfie cam. coming from a mediatek processor, i feel the snapdragn 615 does heat more than it should. the phone gets uncomfortably warm in the hand even when surfing the web on wifi for about half an hour. but that could be just my perception since my last phone had a puny dual core processor. the fota firmware update has not helped much in this department either.
The amount of bloatware asus tries to shove down your throat is just outright insulting. i have disabled (yes disabled!! not uninstalled) most of the inbuilt apps already, but kept a few actually useful ones like the clean-master by cheetah, power-saver and mobile-manager and splendid by asus. Ram is sufficient. after removing play store and play services and other google bloat (no, iam not huge google fan) (and no android and google are not the same thing, android is and open source OS developed by google for free use by anyone), i get about 2 gb free ram always, which is sufficient too handle anything i throw at it.
battery is ok. gets me through the day if i dont keep the screen on for too long. i was looking at iberry auxus prime and gionee m4 earlier just for the sake of their batteries, but wifey invoked her veto power for this 13 mp selfie shooter.
iam not a gamer, so havent ventured beyond subway surfers. but i can imagine how heated it will get if pushed to limits.
oh and i did notice it got seriously heated yesterday night at a party after an over-enthusiastic pic clicking session. i got a call and realised i had to talk with the phone kept about half an inch away from my ear. i guess the too frequent front flash and excessive signal processing for the beautification mode made it that way.
overall, i think its a good buy albeit for the heat problems.

[deleted post]Wht is nfc n i want to buy this phone so go for it or not?? Suggest me pls
So dissappointed..i went to a consert and after record a few video and when i play back the video, the sound is horrified. All have ro delete.. no memories of the consert at all.No good.. same for the camera..the selfie mode and back camera... not that good... what is the point call it selfie if the setting of the camera is to general as the other phones. Dont buy this.
bruce wayne , 27 Oct 2015Should I go for selfie or honor 7 or moto x play Please recommend Selfie :)
Using this phone for more than 3 weeks. Everything is perfect, the camera is very response and great for selfie . Asus Zen UI is way much better than samsung . Both the sims is LTE. Paying RM980 / USD 230 is definitely a great phone to invest in . My only comment is the weight of entire phone. if can slim down around 15% would be perfect. Lovely

No there is no radio in Asus Zenfone Selfie ZD551KLIf your selfie doesn't have radio, I can say that you bought a fake one.
Asus selfie has radio, an FM radio.
I just don't know why there's a lot of people here complaining about the rare camera. For me I am satisfied. Some saying front camera is good but rare is not good. What makes the rare camera bad????
Camera app is also good (pixel-master). It's an all in one camera app. No need to install a 3Rd party cam for you to satisfy your camera madness..xD
