Most Critical Review

Great product...parts unavailable and no response from ASUS!

Asus Zenfone 2 Laser Unlocked Smart Phone, 5.5" Silver, 32GB Storage 3GB RAM, US Warranty
Asus Zenfone 2 Laser Unlocked Smart Phone, 5.5" Silver, 32GB Storage 3GB RAM, US Warranty

Pros: Dual SIM active works great, tested it while traveling overseas by having my local (US) on SIM2 as well as destination country on SIM1. Didn't miss a call or txt from either line which is great, and also surfed internet at local rates using SIM1 rather than roam on SIM2. Worked as advertised. Camera quality was great, pictures came out better than iPhone6S shots of the same scene.

Cons: Problem started when I dropped it just about 2ft...and the screen shattered. Oh well, my fault for dropping it. But I thought gorilla screen should be able to handle a 2ft drop. Anyways, again, my fault. Went online looking for replacement screen, no luck. Tried contacting ASUS online via their website, website is completely broken for weeks, unable to submit a technical support request. I attempted to contact them via their Twitter handle (@ASUSUSA)...where they spew out marketing stuff daily, again, no response. I feel abandoned!

Overall Review: I dont recommend buying a product that replacement parts arent available, and attempts to contact manufacturer are futile. I guess my only option at this point is to purchase another phone?

Dont Waste your Money!!

Pros: -Easy import of contacts from other phone via sd card (it searches sd card for contacts saved elsewhere, in this case, from a Nokia E71x) - Good as a FM radio or music player only, assuming battery allows u for that long.

Cons: -Battery lasts around 4hrs at best! (with occassional talk, of about 10-20mins). I am tied to a charger now! -U cannot return to newegg!! (Only exchange, but i knew this in advance), so please DONT repeat my mistake. -Apps restart on background! (Android problem?), I have installed Advanced Task Killer app, still, at random many are running -Design flaw, placing it on ear either hungs up, or places it on mute, etc., really bad, bad design! -Screen not visible outside, good luck if you are in a sunny location, even at its brightest light (which would kill battery even faster!) -Too, too small, honestly. I could not imagine how small it would be just by description online, useless for occasional web surf, etc.

Overall Review: Useful apps not available (e.g. all my banks dont have an app for android, whilst i have them all on iPod - Granted, this is an Android issue, not SonyEricsson)

Wont port forward port #80

Pros: Price, autoconfiguration for the home user.

Cons: Wont forward port #80. I was trying to use it for hosting a website at home on internal ip address. I setup port forwarding, but everytime, router came up with device login page instead of website. Switched to another manu, all works. So it is not my net configuration.

Overall Review: Tech support totally clueless. I mean it. I guess you get what you pay for. If you need beyond sharing internet connection, get a different product altogether.
