Use Custom ROM like Resurrection Remix or Lineage with Nougat (more stable) or Oreo (Buggy), then this Zenfone 2 Laser will rebirth smoothly.

Just upgraded to Marshmallow on my ZE500KL and it looks good. No issues except for some heavy apps like Line and wechat need to reside in internal memory. I enable adoptable storage where my internal and microSD card were combined as one... so it works like App2SD. My microSD is a Kingston 64GB with 90MB/s Read and 80MB/s Write so if you buy a lesser microSD, your mileage will suck !
I factory reset, upgraded to Marshmallow via official firmware download since FOTA was not working, wipe cache and everything works well. It has been 3 weeks now with no issues.
Enabling Adoptable Storage is a bit more tedious but there are complete guides online. Because Asus did not enable Adoptable Storage by default, formatting the microSD card stops at 20% follow by a pop up error but there was no issues with usage. After the error, I exit and restarted my phone and the storage appeared. I can transfer files via USB to the storage with no issues. RAM usage is about the same.
Battery life is good and WiFi have no issues.
The biggest pain was my customization and data restoration were not seemless..not sure what happened but I have to restore them manually.
I should have done this earlier rather than believe all the hype that Marshmallow was problematic for my phone model.

Camera is great but this is worst phone ever!!!

Looks like those with the 5" ZE500KL/KG are the only survivors for this model. The other sizes have well know SOC heating issues. So if you have other than the 5" ZE500KL/KG, there is no escape due to the SOC.

Using this phone almost 2 years, good phone by price.
But there are few bad things:
1. GPS is so unresponsive that there is no connection using maps apps (example: waze).
2. Can't remove or even disable facebook background service app (need to root to do that)
3. Need to disable all bloatware what comes to it if whant to use with less lags.
4. Not possible to get full 4G speed. (Using the same SIM in blackberry q10 or Motorola G5 4G is working with bigger speed)

But if not taking these things, it is some good daily phone by price.
