Samath N8 808 owner, 12 Aug 2018Finally, one mature opinion. I don't like the notch as such, but that doesn't mean I hate it, ... moreThe audio is superb. It's loud and clear both from the speaker and 3.5mm jack. You can also adjust the quality of the sound, make it more better because of the feature with DTS Headphone X.
The ZenUI 5 has less bloatware compared to ZenUI 3.5 and below. You also have the option to disable those apps from the application settings. So no need to root the phone. It almost has no bloatware. There are only Asus backup, selfie master, my files, gallery, theme and other Google apps. I think that's it. You can play with the Zenimoji on the selfie mast app. But I was able to use the Zenimoji also In what's app during video calls.
My phone is almost one month and I don't have any problems with it. Smooth gameplay. No lags nor delays (Arena of Valor in HD Display). My data connection is 4G+. There are no issues in connectivity even on wifi. I just experienced a slow receiving transfer via share it. But when I update my phones software, It has gotten faster. So no problems all in all. :)

Could you tell me about the audio quality from the 3.5mm jack, in headphones/ earphones?
Right now, I own a Redmi 2 Prime, which despite being a low ender, matches the iphone and flagships in audio quality and loudness both... I'm considering this Asus phone now.
Also, does it have a lot of bloatware bundled? Can system apps be removed without rooting?
Thanks in advance.
@GSMARENA Staff... Kindly review this phone extensively... Please.
I have had my ZF5 for just over a month. I absolutely LOVE IT! It looks great and performs even better. I honestly have no complaints, nothing I would change. If you want an almost flagship at a midrange price it is the way to go. The only thing missing is water and dust proofing. I'll take that and keep the extra money.
I don't get why some people are so intensely emotional about the notch. If you don't like it there is an option to hide it, or just buy another phone. I personally like it as the notification area is wasted real estate anyway. I also don't get the complaints on the size. They managed to fit a 6.2" screen into a frame only slightly larger than my old 5" ZF2. Finally, yes it looks a lot like an iphone x and I have had many people mistake it for one. So what? I mean seriously there are only so many design options available for a smart phone.
In the end haters gonna hate, but if you want a really nice phone and a really good price and you are not a notch nazi then I recommend the ZF 5.
Dear GSM Arena, can you please update that when will you publish the Complete Review of Asus Zenfone 5Z..?
Guys, please stop arguing about who's copying who about the notch, the notch is there because I phone still have not mastered the enginering aspect of a totally bezeless screen and so other manufactures. Next year, all phones will come with really bezeless phones as they mastered the manufacturing process of a totally bezeless phones.... Meanwhile, I am happy that Asus has given us another alternative of flagship phone with half the price....
yTin, 16 Apr 2018Release date in India? Pls. Ans.1st week of July, as of now!!!
Very interessed by the ZE620KL, I can't find the SAR, even the manual on the asus site
Can you tell me the SAR (for europe if it's possible), please ?
thanks by advance
pankajforever, 29 Mar 2018Eagerly waiting for zenfone 5, plz say its release date. 12 april in taiwan
The ZF5 and 5z looks to be absolutely great at their price points. If you don't care for maximum performance, the Zenfone 5 seems like a solid choice. Very interesting to see , and pricing should be more correct versus zenfone 4 series
Anonymous, 28 Feb 2018Their ZF3 and ZF4 are both rubbish, full of bugs and bloatware that were not fixed for months.... moreWhat a troll.
Both zf3 and zf4 has oreo, and have received several update up that. Class leading stuff.
