Bought in autumn 2016, still a nice phone, it tends to heat in some circumstances but performance improvements and extended support for some apps is still possible if you are willing to upgrade tox Oreo 8.1 from the Asus official website since OTA O.S. update is not supported (I suggest a total factory reset before upgrading). Good use of Asus Mobile Manager and Auto-start manager app helps a lot to maintain the phone in good shape. Original battery is still capable of reaching the end of the day though it suffers from burnout: when reaching 40% it drops rapidly to 10%.

      I use it 5 years already, but got the battery problem and some others, like opening the camera by itself, all the time, slowing at all. Brought it to the service and they told me - even if i change the battery, other problems will stay, so, i just wait, unless the phone dies...But im glad, this price is ok, and 5 years working!

        Anonymous, 21 Dec 2021I am using this phone too but now my battery is not working... moreBattery replacement would only be the best option to consider since the phone is still usable for moderate gaming and mundane call and text messaging tasks.

          i still use it. playing games for a long time can get hot.

                      I've used this phone for 4 years now, it was okay until one year ago but then performance dropped visibly - it gets slow even to just navigate the browser, and battery has a nasty habit of suddenly dropping from 25-30% to 0%. Still good for casual everyday use.

                        I have been using this phone for about 4 years. I've never had a problem with it and the original battery still lasts all day long. My only complaint is that protecting the screen is difficult, due to the curved glass. Everything I've owned by Asus is pretty much the same; not terribly sexy but remarkably reliable and super battery life.

No issues so far and battery life is great, but I do not use WiFi, I keep it mostly for emergencies and as GPS. Keep in mind that the speaker has really low volume.

                                  Compare to other smartphone that I use this thing is the real deal. Been using it since 2017 surprisingly there is no problem. Talk about battery, yes it drain kinda fast but it okay use it from 7.00 am until 1 pm still left 40%. It totally not fair to compare it with the newcomers like Huawei, oppo, vivo, realme because it like you comparing old people with a boy. But if you compare this to the old vivo, oppo, Huawei, realme yes this thing is far more durable because I drop this thing more than hundred time but it still work tho. That is my review after 4 year using it

Well, if you need a phone for the sake of having a phone and you're on low funds atm you can use it for sure until you save money for a new phone. It will most probably work without problems. But it's discontinued, old version of Anroid, some apps don't work anymore with that version. Just use it for a few months until you save money for a 2019+ phone.

                                        I bought a zenfone 3 max 5.2 in 2016 or 2017 as an extra phone; I've never used it, but now my huawei is fading. Is it worth it to just move everything to the new/old zenfone or should I just buy a new phone? thanks.
