I bought this phone for 3 years but I have suffered freeze or crash sometimes even though in first year.Battery life I think quite poor,play mobile legends (like aov) sometimes cannot play over an hour. Camera, I think as it is great at contrast and quite clear,like it.

Overheating is the Atom processor but it runs faster. Large screen easily crack in jeans pocket. ZenUI is still good except for limited 5 pages. Camera autofocus is good. Pics are sharp but vivid. Battery drains fast if playing games. 2GB RAM & 16GB ROM is still relevant today. Sim card slots have contact problems. GPS, proximity & compass work well. Audio music is poor and so is audio calls.

I am satisfied of using this phone for almost 3 1\2 years. But when talking about the battery performance, it drops a lot! I am unable to play games and add more apps. However, it is so durable.

Hi, can some one help me? I had this fone for almost 2 and a half years. But recently my data connection just stayed in 2g, even though i change it to 3g its still goes in 2g. Then i reset my fone then 3g starts working again for some time then it goes back to only 2g. Then i reset it again, 3g start working again but after 1day it goes 2g again.

Ps. I still dont update it to its new update.

I have been using this phone for nearly 3 years. Never had any issues. good camera, never hangs, good battery backup, overall good performance. But recently it stared to get a bit warmer while charging or using phone when battery is below 15% other than that only one drawback is, it does not support 4G.

hi guys, I tried to put 7.1 by using Resurrection Remix. It works wonders! It also kinda solved the battery life problem brought by the official 5.1 update by Asus

This is very poor quality phone .poor battery performance ,and sim slot problem .Always getting message on screen as sim not installed .
It take around 2000 rupees for repair and after that also thereis no gurantee that it will work.

Asus zenfone or max is worse phone I ever come across. Its a mistake that i bought it. There features and the working process is very different. E.g. In the feature it may written the bettery is 5000mah but sumsung bettery of 2000mah will be last longer. It may say the Ram is 2gb or 4gb but in reality it always hang when we load a standard app, game etc. Wheras, it work well in other phone having 1gb Ram.
Guess every feature and hardware of Asus company is just a fake one.

So, I have this phone for almost 3 years. I just drop it on the road today, and kind a bit late when I found it.
it's already torn, the gorilla glass is broken, i lost the back case.
but thankfully, it's still working just fine, the cameras, the flash light, the speakers, the mic,
i can still use them.
but typing is another story, because of the broken protection, my LCD isn't too damage and still functioning, just kinda hard to type few letters because of the damage.
