  1. Rated 2 out of 5

    I am not sure why flipkart is selling a product this product with 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z2560. I was about to place order but just pulled back

  2. Rated 1 out of 5

    Asus Zenfone 6 A600CG /A601CG which means there are 2 models for sale! These two don’t have a lot of difference but whatever is the difference it is significant i mean A600CG has 2.0 GHz processor, and A601CG has 1.6 GHz!!! Which in my view is a lot. Even battery capacity differs 3300MAH and 3230MAH resp.!!! Rest might be same but difference is difference plz flipkart make 2 different pages for different models!!
    P.S. I got A601CG which is satisfactory for my use..

  3. Rated 1 out of 5

    UPDATE: Asus is the worst company when it comes to support. Even samsung/MI/ Micromax are way better than Asus. Asus didn’t even bothered for Lollipop OTA update for first series of Zenfone launched just a year ago and no announcement of Marshmallow update. Even the manual update is badly buggy and stuck at 5.0.0.
    It Appears that first Zenfone series was just trial series of Asus who made fool out of Indian Consumers. Curse you Asus, i am never gonna buy any ASUS product ever and will ensure no one in my circle ever buys the products of a Customer fooling company like you.
    Forget my last review. It was a HUGE MISTAKE. I apologise who bought on my recommendation
    First, Phones are all about user experience
    So, If you are looking for a great piece of tightly integrated hardware loaded with bloatfree smooth running software, then zenfone 6 is for you. Please note that Asus is one of the best manufacturers and pioneer in Motherboards which life of computing device.
    Pros:
    Good Screen with clear visibility (Ignore that ppi complain. Density is 320 dpi)
    Snappy & lag free experience with GREAT AnTuTu benchmark of 22127 above Note 2 (It Has Z2580 2.0 Ghz dual core with 4 CPU’s. Flipkart has mentioned it Wrongly as Z2560 1.6 Ghz. Practically Octa/Hexa Cores are of no use to 95% of users as all phones come with x32 Architecture. Rather go for iphone 5S with x64 architecture processing for next level of experience).
    Battery: Recharge it FULL 100% and then drain it FULL 0%. Repeat this cycle for 2-3 times to unleash its real power. Good Capacity.
    Connectivity: Great. Disable smart saver mode when you have wifi disconnects (It happens when your battery is low)
    In Short GO FOR IT. its a great productivity + Entertainment Device (Choose Gold/ Red)

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    I’ve used this phablet for a couple of days now and these are my initial views
    Pros:
    1. The battery life is very good. Charged it fuly for 4 hrs on the first day and its still going tough after heavy internet usage and GPS.
    2. The UI is amazingly simple and its one of the best I’ve seen(believe me I’ve used HTC one, Samsung S5 and LG G2). It does not over-complicate things and lays down a pretty neat design which is simple to use even for a new smartphone user.
    3. The display is great for its price range without any pixellation although you cannot compare it with phones that are more than twice its price range.
    4. I’ve not noticed any lag as of now with games like Dead trigger and COD but will have to chk it on the long run.
    5. Asus is a far better brand when compared to certain brands and this is the best possible buy in this price range

    Cons
    1. Gets heated up after 45 mins of gameplay near the flash but its quite manageable
    2. Although the display is great, in broad daylight it becomes a bit difficult to read.
    3. Jelly bean 4.3 although Asus has promised a kitkat update soon
    4. Single hand operations is out of question unless you have a scarily large hand
    5. Shutter speed in camera is quite poor when you try to take photos in 13 MP and use HDR. Probably a small bug fix would solve this problem

  5. Rated 4 out of 5

    I feel it is a great 6 inch phablet, with a better camera and a good battery life.
    Pros:
    Great camera, low light shots are even better than Samsung Galaxy Phones(I am already having Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom).
    Zen UI is elegant and neat. I feel its better than Samsung’s touchwiz.
    Battery life looks descent, but will update after few days.
    FM is present.

    Cons:
    Back cover looks very smooth, not hard enough. Should be extra careful while handling the device.
    Sound quality is not great, but not bad either.
    Not a quadcore snapdragon processor, but no lag observed.
    Still in Jelly bean, waiting for kitkat update.

    Conclusion:
    If you are looking for a phablet with great camera and descent battery life, you can go for it. If you are a gamer and wanted to play heavy weight games, pls go for other devices.(Deducting one star for not providing qualcom snapdragon processor, but intel’s dual core is not bad)

    Cell phone stopped stopped recognizing SIMs in just 6-7 days and getting restarted every 5 mins. Get it checked at ASUS authorized service center. They replaced the main board but now touchpad had lost sensitivity at certain places.
    May be a bad piece in the lot but a major disappointment.

  7. Rated 3 out of 5

    I got my phone a few hours back. I’ve been playing around with it since then. Overall it’s a pretty good phone. I’ve liked it so far. It’s a really nice phone, it looks rather nice too. However, I’ve noticed (as others have mentioned) it tends to get heated around the camera area, and I wasn’t even doing any heavy usage, just updated my apps. Second, it has really low sounds, ringtone can barely be heard in a busy environment. Apart from those two thins, i don’t have any complaints yet. I’ll edit this review and update it, if anything comes up.

    All in all, after playing with it for about 2 hours,I’ve got to say that it’s a good phone with a few kinks. I wouldn’t say it’s a must buy but at the same time, it’s not going to be the worst buy either.

    Edit: so, I’ve had this for a couple of hours now and I have to say that, the battery life is rather lackluster considering the size and the expected talk time from the phone. I gave it a full charge and used it for a bit. I had my WiFi on, played a game for about 20 mins or maybe even lesser. Surfed the internet abit, tried out the camera and did all the other usual stuff, nothing too heavy. All this was with the battery saver option on. Within a few hours I’m down to 20%. Maybe I was expecting too much but the battery has really let me down. I had previously given this phone 4 stars but I’ve changed that to 3 now.

    Final thoughts, the phone is still ok though, given the features abd all. But don’t expect much from the battery.

  8. Rated 1 out of 5

    Phone is good in looks (sleek, attractive) with wider 6 inch display and Corning Gorilla glass. But too much pre installed applications (53 in number) which can’t be uninstalled and consumes too much of memory (more than 500 MB of RAM) and battery (30- 70% battery drain, depending upon application used) which lead to phone heat up, hang ups and crashes. So, it is waste of money. Flipkart do provide return policy, it only provides replacement option that too within 7 days of purchase. I regret buying

  9. Rated 5 out of 5

    This is a review after 1 week usage:
    Good Battery life, it almost runs for 24 hours with heavy usage.

    Good performance, it is almost lag free unlike any mid range Samsung phones.

    Camera features are great and intuitive. You can play a lot with it.

    Specially I like the UI.
    One handed mode – saves a great effort while another hand is blocked

    Notification and quick setting are bifurcated.

    Customizable quick setting.

    Searchable mean and widget separately- saves a huge time.

    Frequently used apps tabbed separately – no need to search the menu every time.

    Upcoming events — very intuitive .

    Clearing the ram does not require any third party app, right available in the quick settings.

    Even in the lock screen couple of generally used application available– flashlight, calculator, quick note and boost, these are fixed and not-changeable.

    All other features are as normal as other android phones.

    Some of the things I did not like about this phone:
    No 3G video call feature, although it has a front camera and most probably modem supports it.

    No zoom out feature while viewing long and wide text, this causes to scroll horizontally multiple times while reading the text.

    No stylus or stylus holder although third party stylus works perfectly fine.

    No option for selecting only 3G for a SIM, although modem should support it. This causes to toggle in 2G/3G in bad signal condition, which would eventually drain much more battery.

    As every review has said, loudspeaker is not very loud. You might face some difficulties when using load speaker in crowded places.

    Bugs:
    Tapping a message does not show up the message menu always. It is inconsistent.

    When using dual SIM,
    Sometimes SIM1 goes out of service: To fix this airplane mode needs to be turned on and off.

    When having dual SIM and SIM2 deactivated, but SIM1 is in no network zone, suddenly there are some GUI activities which are asking for dual SIM configuration. It has happened one time.

    Couple of times phone has restarted automatically. Not a major one.

    I would say, in this price, there are very less phone which will give you good performance under heavy usage. All phones will have little bit of bugs here and there, those can be sent back to OEM for fixing. But given the price point it is really good. You will love it.

  10. Rated 5 out of 5

    i have been using this from last two weeks and will try to answer all genuine doubts..with a review with personal experience and my all know-how..

    HARDWARE-
    feels premium,certainly a step above my note 2,back panel is a bit tricky to remove,u need to be careful handling the back panel as it may damage your lower bezel which is quite delicately attached,also quality control issues have been seen with a lot of zenfone models which is quite common with a new product in market..check your device by opening stock calculator app and typing “.12345+= ” without the quotation marks..
    It has a small led notification whose settings cant be changed,no backlit buttons(doesn’t matter as you will adjust within hours to it),volume rocker and power button placed on the right side(most delicate and hard to press),removing the back panel houses a 3300mAh battery,two sim card slots and a memory card slot..the gorilla glass screen is quite delicately placed which can be felt by displacement of the display fluid by little application of pressure,,it is horrifyingly more prominent around the edges,,people need to be careful regarding this as a vertical drop may prove fatal for the display unit,,a cover which covers the volume rocker and the power key should be preferred for convenience and longevity..the loud speakers are really low especially during the calls,while the internal speaker isnt too shabby though not loud in general,call reception and sim management is quite good,,the headsets provided are in a different league and are one of the best and loud enough,also not that bulky considering the form factor,,finally using a 6″ device will not bother much as we are habituated now a days with tablets

    DISPLAY –
    a IPS LCD 720p screen with 320dpi,not in league with amoled or full hd displays of present generation,but suffices for a 17k phone,,pixellation will be prominent in home screen but doesnt surface much while browsing or gaming instances.

    CAMERA-
    in terms of pure shooting it has failed in terms of the depth,,but certain features of the pixelmaster camera has impressed a lot and has made capturing images fun,rest assured the photos captured wont be competing with a Samsung or a LG 13Mp camera but wont lag far.,the best camera for a under 20k phone

    CPU & GPU-
    CPU is a INTEL Atom 2.0Ghz Z2580 processor,yes 2.0Ghz which handles normal activities quite well..optimaation has been done properly..so even without much raw power it gets things done efficiently,,transistions are smooth and browsing or video playback causes no issues..random heating is often seen but the recent update of 1.17 firmware has stabilised it a bit,,expect heat around 36 deg.C while gaming which isnt quite a big issue
    GPU powervr sgx544 is one of the best and provides one of the best frame rates in this price segment with the 2GB RAM complementing real well.

    BATTERY-
    provides me an a single use of around 20hrs with 45 mins of gaming(heavy games like modern combat 5,shadow fight 2),,2hrs of calls,,wifi and 2g movile data as well as auto sync ON,though GPS Off…which is quite good considering my activities..tentative usage will give a battery backup of minimum 1.5 days

    SOFTWARE-
    Asus custom zen interface is definitely one of the best in terms of simplicity,elegance and innovativation i have seen..it has given most of the necessay apps such as flashlight,ram boost,app to SD card,PC link in-built,,so no need of scourging the play store for all of these,,there is a problem in WIFI signal strength compared to other phones,,it always receives less signal strength..people may complain about the space occupied by the pre installed apps which seem more than required but having 16gigs internal and expansion of 32gb as well as 2 gigs RAM wouldnt raise much questions

    **NOTE- Gave me a Antutu score of 22.9k but i have been really impressed with ASUS response to its device,,it has already given 2 OTA updates which have smoothened a lot of rough edges of the phone..
    the main one being SUPPORT OF OTG,,Yes now all the Zenfone support OTG after the last update thus resolving its one of the biggest demerits..
    Also expect quick Kitkat update which will show this phone’s true colurs(offcourse postive ones)

    OVERALL-
    may lack in terms of pure power compared to xiaomi and oneplusone
    but definitely a more all rounded phone which covers all the bases required(after sales service,Brand value,memory card slot,frequency ranges) in a smartphone..and being around 17k was my clear choice of preference..you never know what xiaomi mi4 or oneplusone will be priced and the rumours of only 16gb variant shipped to India may leave bitter taste.

    I will rate this 4.5 stars as this price will fetch you this only
