I got the phone from flipkart after waiting for long time. Asus created so much of hype about the phone so after it listed on the flipkart its gets out of stock. Asus Zenfone 2 comes with phone, charger and usb cable and its so unusual that earphone are not included as the price is not that cheap.


In this review I will only mention only about the negative aspect about the phone. As the most of the important aspect has problem in it.
Like:-
*Camera
* Heating Issue
* Video playback
*Gaming

Camera produces too much of noisy and grainy photographs in daylight as well in low light condition. I know you cannot get the quality like a high zoom cam or DSLR but neither like a Zenfone 2 cam. A 15thousand phone should be equiped with much better camera than this. As per as I know, the ZF2 comes with a Toshiba sensor which is not like a sony one. Anyway when you zoom in a photo, you will see somelthing like a pastel colour drawing .
And the flash is to bright and yellowish in color. It overexpose the subject at great extend. Totally disappointed by the quality.

Heating Issue
Yes, you heard it right. This phone has heating issue. It occurs when you do normal work like browsing, watch a movie or playing a small game. I downloaded Bus simulator from play store and played for 15 minutes and the temperature goes up to 45*Celsius. Wow Intel and Asus great work done. Yeah flagship killer phone.

Music Playback
Did you ever heard that music playback lagging when multitasking? no right. But this phone does. Music playback lagging for 2-3 sec while opening browser or chatting app. And the sound quality is not great either.

Gaming

While downloading games like Asphalt 8 Airborne and GT racing 2 from playstore. I am getting a error 905 and cannot finished the installation. Tried many times but no success.

Video playback

Video and audio are not syncing at same time. Need to select Software mode in MX player to solve the issue. And while forwarding the video it getting shutter for few secs.

Zf5 had heating issues too. After reading your short review, I am not going to suggest anyone to buy it.

I think tenida was one of the first few guys who was very eager to get hold of the Zenphone and I'm sure he was very excited to get hold of one.
At one point of time I was even thinking of considering Zenphone by increasing my budget for new phone. Looking at the review I think I made better decision going for Yureka.

Thanks for the review Tenida.

I will get a wndows phone or will check the review of yuphoria for time being. And later will buy one plus two when available.

Looks like Z5 is much better than this.

Z5 has better camera as well because z5 uses sony sensor whereas Zf2 uses Toshiba.

Wow they really screw it up. This is certainly moving up on my not recommended phones.

First I have to fight with the flipkart guys for the refund.

They will refund it eventually but I am guessing that it is going into your wallet. Not actual refund.
