      I bought my Asus ZenFone 3 ze520kl (z017da) in 2017. It works fine so far. I received a notice from my cell phone carrier T-Mobile that they are going to retire their 3G UMTS network and informed me I need to upgrade or replace my smart phone by 7/1.
      I am confused because I thought this phone is with 4G technology. Does anyone has similar experience?

            Been using this for 5 years. It was smooth, barely any lag except after clearing large data cache. Storage is a bit small since I used dual sim, no additional data but overall satisfied with this phone for daily use.
            After so many fall incidents, screen cracked, black spot widen, screen flickered after awhile, and unable to detect earphone. The last one is my limit. Else, I probably will use this longer.

              Enough memory! But SOMEWHAT a complaint. Horrible fingerprint scanner. It's not wide enough. If Asus used the regular circle fingerprint scanner, this phone would be amazing.

              In white, it's pretty cute.

                Gabriel, 21 Mar 2021I want to update my asus zenfone 3 to 8.0 but can't up... moreForget about it. Asus probably won't.

                  April 2021, because my primary phone is on service so i bought this type from my local store. it still brand new in box / new old stock. with price now just around 76$. lucky me right?

                  i remember back then when zenfone 3 family launched, the price is around 310$ or higher, i don't have that much money at the time. so yeah i'm late almost 5 years to own this phone.. lmfao

                  so after testing it for one week, i definitely can say this phone still hold it's own for daily uses like browsing internet or watching youtube. avoid heavy games like pubgm of course.

                  battery can still hold around 12 hours if you are light user. overall this one still very capable for backup or secondary phone in 2021.

                    I have had this phone for over 3 years. The only bug I have is that the sd card reconnects when it is really cold in the room. Otherwise, mine works perfectly and I absolutely adore it. Battery lasts for 3 days while being on wifi the entire time.

                    The only downside I see is kind of depending on where you live. If you live in middle of nowhere like I do then it is almost impossible to get parts for it if something breaks.
                    10/10 would make the same choice again.

                        I'll replace mine soon after 4 years of life. It's still running perfectly smooth for all I need, but battery life is gone now. Sucks up energy fast and dies off around 35/40%.

                        The MAJOR problem is the famous camera autofocus bug, it's unnaceptable and have been going on for some 2 years. Also have awfully cracked screen although it does not affect so much.

                        Anyone else?

                                      After 3 years, rear camera focus stop working. Swap it to a new camera still doesn't work. And Josef's trick also doesn't work. Haven't try firmware reset or changing rom yet, i hope i wont have to do the later.
