Asus zenfone 2 ZE551ML review

Asus zenfone 2 ZE551ML (4 GB RAM, 2.3 GHz Processor, 64 GB ROM)

Just got it yesterday

I bought the ASUS flip cover as well that costed 1.3k. Whomever didn't buy this are missing beautiful additional features that the cover gives, like attending the call, date, time, weather, photo , all without flipping the cover, Material is with good grip too 

Also my 3g sim works pretty faster than it worked on Nexus 4

On call sound works just ok, Nexus 4 was better. This is significant issue for me

Camera has lots of features and customizations and so far so good, don't see any lag that some had pointed. Yet to try low light photos, but auto exposure adjustment is impressive. Flash seems powerful though haven't used it effectively

Battery charges super fast with the boost master adapter. Battery drains when i keep the display on with lots of apps, yet to be sure if it is a real issue

Lots of RAM already consumed, but still haven't got an issue out of it

Got a 64gb samsung card and all my photos and new apps go there

Lots of minute UI features does give good feel

Touch and display are good. Take screenshot by choosing the option from dropdown shortcut. Double tap wakeup is handy too

Overall its more than worth the money!

Update after 4 days 18:05:2015:

One thing i missed to call out is that, my friend dropped the phone while opening the pack on a carpet floor at a height of 3 feet and nothing happened to the screen or phone

I see that the battery is absolutely fine with normal 3g and phone call use. Works fine with long calls as well

I don't play games so no idea.

Call quality is average for sure. Nexus 4 was better as I said earlier. Literally no use of the speaker on call at all, so low volume.

So many in built minute features impress me as i discover them one by one, for eg, the voice recorder on call, call-back or sms option for missed calls on notification itself, configurable Quick settings drop down, wifi metering in addition to cellular data metering, auto switch off of hotspot after inactivity, ASUS gallery integration with all cloud and social accounts like G+, FB, G Drive...etc, Thank God, if not for the Asus Gallery have to depend on memory drinking G+ to have the G photos enabled.
