Phone is great, battery is phenomenal. This phone does whatever any phone would. Snapchat is shit on more shit but other than that this is a really good deal for what you're getting.

Rayna Hasin (1 year ago)
This is actually so true. I just got the phone yesterday and it looks nice and all. But the camera quality could've been a lot better. Fingerprint scan takes a while to get the phone unlocked. Snapchat videos are blurry and slow. And the list continues..

raysian cafirma I agree had mine for 8 months and the SIM slot is faulty
Miss Vaitheswary (1 year ago)
This is a decent phone that comes in a affordable price. Performance wise it's good but if you are looking for a phone with a good camera, then please don't ever buy this. It can't even take a decent photo. Everything about the camera is horrible.
Pocket Gaming (1 year ago)
Miss Vaitheswary huh? pretty good for me, they updAted the phone and they fix the camera...
Bhawna03 (1 year ago)
Miss Vaitheswary Thanks for sharing! Was really considering this phone, but I need a decent camera.

BIG M (1 year ago)
I advice you to buy Asus zenfone 2 64 GB or 32 GB that's the one I'm using now and its nice
BIG M (1 year ago)
jcsufi Don't dare buy lg g3 or lg g4 those are faulty phones made by lg.I had a g3 that lasted only two days the motherboard was dead then i was having a bootloop all the time not only me all the g4 and g3 users have the same issues and the worst part is that there's no permanent fix only temporary fix you can get...It really sucks

PhoneBunch (1 year ago)
+Alan Chua yes
The battery life of a phone depends on usage of the phone itself,depends on the apps being used,cus some other apps really eats your battery life.Such as video editing apps,onlinr games and the games with high resolutions...... Even if someone's phone has 5000+mah battery This is just a clarification about battery life,and has nothing to do with the 4100mah battery life of Asus Zenfone 3 max 5.2 or the features of this phone😃😃😃😃😃😃😃

I bought this for my gf because her Samsung J2 was always running out of battery before the end of the day. Now we don't have that problem anymore (our daughter uses it for You tube a lot when we are not at home). We didn't notice any performance issues or any problems. It does its job well for 4 time cheaper than the most expensive phones.

videonaj Does it have fast charging? If it doesn't, how long does it take to charge? And how long does the phone's battery last on a normal day?
Tracy Lawlor (1 year ago)
Sammy C I returned the phone and bought the new ZTE Asus 7. That also has dual sim and what I've been looking for info. So far I Know that you can only use 1 at a time 1 for calls n texting and the other for data?? I have at&t prepared and it's kinda confusing. I'll figure something out. thanks 🌷
Sammy C (1 year ago)
you could use the second spot for expandable memory... FYI
videonaj (1 year ago)
I am in Thailand and have never heard of needing 2 sims cards to make it work. You do have an option of having a 2nd sim card if needed but i doubt its needed anywhere in the world.
Jamal Crawssover (1 year ago)
Please do not buy the ZC520TL variant. Barely any updates on this phone. It has shitty cameras, shitty CPU, underwhelming battery life (considering it's what they're so proud of) and a shitty GPU. It can only run Asphalt 8 smoothly at Low preset and it keeps stuttering when it's at Medium. If you ever see a faster phone in your city or area that is close in the price then I suggest you buy that instead, don't always trust a product because of it's brand name.
Pocket Gaming (1 year ago)
Jamal Crawssover really? i cant even run Minecraft on my laptop but i can on my phone! cool right?... 😎 ok seriously, asphalt 8? then yours is probably damaged i can run any high end required games, only at low-med settings but overall its better than a shitty j1, plus its getting nougat and they have fixes for it, and please take your phone to a shop, its probably fake.

brightphoebus (1 year ago)
I got one for $200 CAD at Best Buy. I'm in the same fix. I have 10 days to change my mind. Did you keep yours? I don't like the emojis and the slim slipperiness of it, and I'm not that impressed with the photo quality.
Tracy Lawlor (1 year ago)
mckay hotard I just bought the same phone, how do you like it? Have you had any problems with it? I'm just wondering because I have 10 days to return it and I don't want a shit phone.

Hi @phonebunch. Could you please tell me what's the output of the charger that comes with the phone in the box(sold in India) ? Is it 1A or 2A ? And how long does it take to charge from 0 to 100% with the charger that it comes with ?
