Do not Buy This Product

I got this product some 2 weeks back from Flipkart at Rs. 5999.nnThe phone was working fine till today, apart from heating , camera and low battery life issues. I was fine with them as I anticipated them before buying.nnBut today as I was sitting on a chair and working , I tried to take my phone out of my pocket and it fell (approximately from knee height).nnAnd the great so called Gorilla glass shattered to pieces.nI called Flipkart they refused to take any ownership about the issue, they gave me some local Service Center Address, where Asus was no existing.nnnI called Asus number available in web, was able to connect after 6 hrs of repeated retries.nThey gave the right address of the support center, and when I reached there my frustration doubled.nnThey asked for Rs 4000.00 just for the glass (display and touch are working fine) for a phone which I bought at 5999.nnI tried calling Asus guys and they said they do not have any information about price of spare parts.nnNow I do not know whom to reach out, probably the only option to get my phone serviced at the asked price.nProbably that is the plan of Flipkart/ Asus when the market or sell the product.nnI would suggest not to buy this phone.

Where did the Zenfone A450CG Vanish???

Asus were supposed to launch 2 models of Zenfone 4 via Flipkart,ni.e,nA400CGnandnA450CGnnwith the later having a bigger screen(4.5') + Better Camera(8MP) + Led Flash + better battery(1750Mah) + Better Screen Resolution(480x854) and also Android 4.4.x KitKat out of the box only @Rs.1000 more.nnBut I guess Flipkart realized the fact that the A450CG would kill the sales of A400CG,nSo vanished away the A450CG model listing totally.nnEven today,nwhen you google "A450CG" the 4th link that shows,is of the flipkart's selling page of the same.nBut to everyone's demise,on clicking the link,we are taken to the homepage of flipkart.nnSame happened to the Zenfone 5 (8gb) series to sell the (16gb) version.nPrice being the vice-versa factor in that case.nnAlthough its a good marketing strategy,nBut people,nWe shouldn't be fooled with such marketing tricks.nStop buying this phone and wait for the A450CG to be brought back,or leave a mail to Asus regarding the same.nnOnce done,the price of this model will automatically get lowered too.

After nearly 4 months of use.....previous titleDon't worry Radio is there....and much more to expect or not to expect.

After nearly 4 months of use:n----------------------------nThis is gonna hurt.nThe phone used to crash many times.but there were many updates from Asus for that too to resolve those crashes.may be they knew this.nnAnd when new Android OS update came on air, was happy thinking of what new features it will give me, but then phone refused to update and got stuck.had to reset from recovery menu and then again when I checked for updates, it says no new updates.looks like Asus removed new OS upgrade for the moment from its servers or may be its another bug.nnAnd now the phone keeps on restarting when I do the following:nnPlace the phone on a metal surface and then start play store and try to just access app list. Boom!! It restarts everytime on doing this. also when screen is turned off, it gets shutdown automatically after sometime without my knowledge.so someone may be trying to call me, but its off.so no disturbance :-)nnFinally I will give it 5 stars on a negative scale if available. Will update more once I take it to their service centre for repair.nnPrevious review:n----------------nYes i said it right. The phone does have a radio. I don't know why the spec says no radio. So after clearing this doubt, i directly come to the pros and cons:nnPros: n1. Budget Price of 6000n2. Dual Simn3. Front and Rear Cameran4. Radion5. Resolution is 800x480, but i didn't find any pixelation. So don't worry it's a good display resolution.n6. 4" screen its enough good size.n7. 1 GB RAMn8. LED light in front for charging statusnnCons:n1. Both Sims can't work on 3G. One Sim has to be operated on 2G if you want other Sim to use 3G.n2. No option to have network as "Automatic" "3G only". Only "2G only" option is there to select, if not selected then it takes default setting as automatic because i can see the network switching sometimes between Edge and H+.n3. Speakers are too low on sound in some applications and while ringing.n4. Will not charge most of the times from Laptop USB port. Keeps on saying "Insufficient current".n5. No earphones provided in the box.n6. Very glossy display. Its definitely a mirror. Though not very irritating.n7. Selecting hide application option in application menu removes icon from home screen also.n8. "BACK, HOME, RECENT APPS" buttons at the bottom doesn't have a back-light.n9. Volume and power button are easily exposed and prone to damage when back cover is openednnI hope this review helps.

ASUS Zenfone 4 Best budget phone in the market!

I'm stepping down after using a Galaxy Note 3 (which I lost,hence this phone in the interim),but I will to try to be as objective about the Zenfone 4 as possible.nn1. Unboxing: The phone came in a stylish little box which slides out instead of flipping open. Contents include the handset, battery, 2-pin USB wall adapter and a data-cum-charging cable. Earphones have been omitted as an obvious cost cutting measure. The device has a sturdy look to it,though very plain. The concentric circle design at the bottom saves some grace though (reminded me fondly of my old Moto Razr V3i).nnOpening the cover was difficult (requires a firm pull) but it never felt like it would crack. The battery slid in smoothly. Inserting the micro-sim and "clicking" it inside was difficult (may require fingernails or a pin). The cover snaps back securely with several loud clicks. Asus has done a good job with the build quality overall.nnAlthough,the capacitive keys have haptic feedback but not backlight...cost cutting becomes too obvious there. Also,the Power/Lock key and the volume rocker have a tacky 'click-click' noise to them.nn2. Display: The Zenfone 4 has a 4" display with a 480x800 pixel resolution. The colours are not AMOLED-punchy but not totally washed out either. It offers decent sharpness,colour-rendering and size for the price. The 'Splendid' module gives the user some control over the display properties.nThe display is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Still,it's a fingerprint magnet and becomes quiet smudgy after a while. Matt-finish screen guard is not a solution either as it will ruin the sharpness further. Sunlight legibility isn't great. Brightness indoors is more than enough. Its missing the ambient-light sensor so you'll have to adjust it manually.nn3. Battery: The Zenfone 4 comes with a 1600 mAh battery. It isn't exactly a marathon runner. With medium usage,it should probably last you 15-18 hours (which is enough,just charge it every night). Heavy users (gaming,3G,movies) will have to look for a charging point every 5-6 hours.nn4. UI: The Zenfone 4 come with Android 4.3 skinned with the ASUS ZenUI. Its a simple interface and very functional. Frankly,slightly more intuitive than Touchwiz on my old Note 3. (Disclaimer: I don't really like changes very much so I've switched to Nova Launcher,which I was using on the Note 3 too.)nn5. Performance: The Zenfone 4 comes with a 1.2 GHz Dual Core Intel Atom Z2520 Processor with Hyper Threading tech, 1 GB Ram and PowerVR SGX 544MP2 graphics : AN ABSOLUTE BARGAIN at this price. I don't know the exact benchmarks but I can give you a user experience. It's a decent performer and till now, I've had no lags, no song track skips, and no freezes or unintentional restarts. It runs Clash of Clans and Asphalt 8: Airborne smoothly,without heating up. Enough said!nn6. Phone/Messaging: The dialer and 'Contacts' interface is skinned with ZenUI but very similar to stock android. Its simple and clean with beautiful,smooth graphics. The signal and call clarity are upto the mark.nnI don't use the messaging app or the stock keyboard (thank you,Whatsapp and SwiftKey) so no comment.nn7. Media: The phone comes with a decent music player (with 'folders' display). The sound is loud and crisp (with average bass) on the earphones but a big let down on the phone external speaker. I mean,you can BARELY hear it. It also has FM Radio,to cater to the masses and to those who're bored of their massive music library. nnVideos,again I never use the built-in player (thank you,MX Player) so can't comment on that. The gallery is simple,smooth and well designed though.nn8. Camera: The Zenfone 4 has a 5 MP Autofocus camera (Autofocus,being the keyword here). The pictures come out okay in daylight but colour reproduction is average (very toned-down saturation). There's no flash so low-light photos are...I don't mean to sound crude,but...useless. Pixelmaster is in my opinion,a gimmick.nVideo recording at 1080p,30 fps is a nice touch and puts it far ahead of its price-point competitors. Impressive!nn9. Connectivity: The latest Wifi 802.11 b/g/n and 3G HSPA+ are excellent. Chrome works superbly with it. Bluetooth 4.0 is also good. Connected to my Samsung laptop and JBL Charge bluetooth speaker seamlessly.nn10. Conclusion: Its a huge step down for me from the Galaxy Note 3 to the Zenfone 4 (till I buy the iPhone 6) but not that big a jolt. Its a more than decent phone for the price with plenty of features to keep you satisfied for a couple of months,or even years!nnRatings:n1. Unboxing & Hardware: 4/5n2. Display: 3.5/5n3. Battery: 3/5n4. UI: 4/5n5. Performance: 4.5/5n6. Phone/Messaging: 4/5n7. Media: 3.5/5n8. Camera: Still - 3.5/5 ; Video - 4/5n9. Connectivity: 4.5/5nn*Flipkart: 5/5! The shopping experience,billing,payment,tracking and delivery... Excellent as always! Keep up the good work.nnNote to Flipkart: FM Radio is present. Please correct it in your specs.
