IMG_20150804_170045

Answer – The 13 MP rear camera and the 5 MP front camera are good shooters. The rear camera gives good day light performance, but shots look a bit overexposed in broad afternoon sun. For an under 10K price, camera performance is quite good.

Question – How is the performance?

Answer – Day to day performance has been smooth so far. We will update you with how well the phone holds with extensive high end gaming after our full review. On Antutu and Nenamarks 2, the handset scored 23698 and 54.4 respectively.

Conclusion

How attractive this low end Zenfone Model is will depend on its price. From our initial time with the device, it looks like a decent proposition for basic users, though we would have liked a slightly better display.

  25. Asus Zenfone 2 Laser Ze550KL

    An overall good phone. But I am facing an irritating issue.

    The phone’s microphone does not work from some point onwards. Once this happens, when attending(or making) a call, the other person wont be able to hear me.

    I am not sure whether its a hardware issue or a software issue. Because once I restart the phone everything is perfect once again. After maybe a couple of calls, the problem resurfaces.

    I read in multiple forums of this issue (even in Zentalk) , but nobody has a clean solution. Some of the solutions were -to disable Ok Google Detection, to enable call recording, to switch to loudspeaker, to reboot the phone and so on.
    Enabling loud speaker works for me. When I realize the other person cannot hear me, I switch to loud speaker and then he is able to hear me.

    Did anybody come across this issue? Is it a software issue? Any help/ideas/suggestions would be nice.

    I am hoping its a software bug which will be hopefully fixed in the next system update or so.

  26. Hai,
    I m looking forward for buying asus zf2 laser 550, and my local seller is ready to sell me for Rs.7700. i need a phone for consistent use, for like 3-4 years or more;and i m not interested in playing games in my phone. so considering durability as a criteria, should i go for zf2L550 or moto e (Rs.7000 flipkart)…?

    Im not a phone expert and i m really confused. My policy is “take a phone thats worth it;not the one you should leave when the trend changes”… Please help me.

    Faithfully
    Arun
