The phone though, very good. Fast and responsive. No LTE (loses a star) which is a knock in the U.S. but HSPA+ is very fast and frankly I'm always on WiFi so not an issue for me but might be for many. Supports a 64Gb microSD and dual SIM, really a good inexpensive phone.
If the phone was truly an international phone it would have met my needs and might meet yours too depending... but either way make sure the SKU is WW (world) and not CN (China) else you'll run into the same issues I did.
I did away with my Verizon contract and am now using this great little Asus phone on StraightTalk for 100 bucks less a month than my old contract.
The phone works and updates right out of the box to android 4.4.2 (KitKat). Everything works perfectly.
They're shipping is as good as Prime and they're in Taiwan!
Ordered on Tuesday and received on Thursday, Taiwan to Iowa via DHL express!
Phone is the 1gb ram version with 8gb of storage. I'm coming from an LG G2 and I don't notice anything much slower provided you're not heavily multitasking.
TLDR; order from Quality Deals out of Taiwan. Receive a phone that works 100% in the US. Enjoy $45 unlimited cell phone service.
***If you check the ROM version on the phone it will say it is the WW and you'll have Google Play Store, but try to update and you will fail, check the integrity of the files on the phone against the one on teh original WW version and won't match.***
The process to replace the ROM for the original WW is quite easy but shouldn't be needed. I was scammed, that's the plain truth.
So, why am I giving the phone 5 stars? Because the phone is still amazing and it is the seller the one receiving bad reputation, not the equipment. Even with my chinese versión it's amazing with the right ROM. I'm comming from an Asus TF101 tablet, a Motorola MotoRoi 3, a Galaxy S3, S4, iPhone 4, Nexus 7 3G tablet to name a few, this ZenFone 5 is so amazing that even after finding out it was a chinese version I bought one more for my sister and I just ordered the ZenFone 6 for myself.
I am starting to lose trust in Amazon, might a well cancel prime and just walk into walmart and the local computer store where i can shout at the asian guy.
Zenfone5 delivered not genuine WW version. instead we got a CN version with a custom rom which is locked and will not take firmware update/fixes from manufacturer Asus.
there is also chinese apps still left on the phone which cannot be removed,
Also you will not be able to get customer support with this device,
Sooo.... Not satisfied, but i already turned in my old phone before i checked this 1
The first device i got was great and real WW version, it suckered me into getting more of this device for the rest of the family----don-don-daaa (bad idea)
I got the phone and discovered that it is NOT a true International version. It is a CHINESE version, which means you can't replace the Chinese apps with Google products. GOOGLE PLAY CAN NOT BE INSTALLED ON THIS PHONE.
TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY!
