    ASUS ZenFone 3 Laser reviews

    ZenFone 3 Laser ZC551KL 32GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Gold) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to believe product Asus Zenfones are make-believe�technology that works for about six months�to a year�...�Their tech support sucks. I am an owner�of two of their Zenfones products (Zen 2 & Zen 3) I should know�by now. Neither of them works without the camera app having to�quit�every time�the camera or video icon is mistakenly touched. The Zen3 is still under their Warranty period. But..�As I learned with ASUS, they offer�no loaner while they attempt�to fix their malfunctioning mobile cell phone products in their�ten days to two weeks period. Ahah!!! Maybe within�that period, I'll discover another unlocked cell brand that does not behave so mysteriously�after six months of ownership and pay more respect to customers' needs

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good phone, bad camera. The phone built is great quality but when i try to switch the camera on, it takes forever to load. Very difficult to take pictures of kids if you trying to catch the right moment.
