I'm using the phone for 10 months now.
Absolutely love it. It's fast it's cool and it has everything you need even expandable memory option.
There were couple of concerns at the beginning related to battery life and phone heating up during gaming & video calls. But I think the software updated somehow fixed it.
And you will be surprised how long the last 1% of battery life can can last. It last more than 30min while using the google maps during the day where higher brightness is required.
But I think you better use battery care options and only charge it up to 90%.
And The flip camera is awesome. and the plastic case comes with the package is very useful too.
overall the best phone I had so far.
I'm waiting to purchase form India.
But unfortunately there is no seller's available in India.
I love this phone cus it has Micro SD Slot
happytux, 09 May 2022I have been using it for 1 month now, and I really like it. The battery is not being that big ... moreYeah, I've been searching for a custom ROM for this phone and surprisingly there's still not a single custom ROM yet for this phone I wonder why. It's already been 2 years since the phone released though.

GSM arena, help us to address our problems on our devices, make this platform to be the key on how ASUS will address our problems. It was all started when we receive recent update on Android 13, and suddenly wifi/hotspot and our camera stop functioning. The wifi/hotspot unable to turn on or won't function, our flip camera won't flip and retract. It's been 2 months since ASUS not addressing these problems and we been frustrated, hopefully you help us to address these issue to ASUS since you are a device platform that has always works with credibility reviews, please help up.

The screen does not respond to touch commands. (opinion about Asus Zenfone 8 Flip)
The phone has not suffered any physical shock. This morning, out of the blue, for no reason, it suddenly froze and became unusable.
If someone calls me, the phone rings, but I can't answer.
I can't even save the files on my computer because I have to give access from the phone...
I regret the choice I made...
Sin, 18 Jan 2023I do think faster changers are a genuine problems as there getting faster and faster 65w then ... moreI don't know about the zenphone but Asus gaming phones atleast stop powering the battery when full and plugged in, I believe it just runs from the mains (xbox controllers do this at 100% while plugged in so it doesn't damage the battery).
BTW the higher watt chargers usually have to have an integrated chip in the actual plug and phone that manage the voltage and amps while also managing the temps (will lower charge if too hot etc), you can also buy/companies ship GaN chargers that handle heat far far better and charge way more efficiently than whatever apple and samsung charger you can buy. Also most very fast charging phones use dual batteries like my Oppo Find X5, it has like 2 2300mah batteries, this helps reduce strain when charging the phone.
Bigger batteries actually degrade much faster, generally, when holding a full charge/almost full discharge (overall a 7000mah battery will constantly hold more charge than a 5000mah battery for more prolonged times), you should have your phones battery about 20% lowest point and 85% highest at any point, avoiding 100% charges and letting it get below 10% (generally best for long lasting battery health, any sized battery), past those points prolonged charge will damage the battery more than 100w GaN charging with dual cells.
Also its actually healthier for your battery to have short little burst charges than leaving your phone on charge for an hour or more, less heat build up and probably won't make the batteries swell from holding charge for long periods of time.
Also some companies have developed far better materials/parts for their batteries to deal with the faster charging speeds (I'm sure Xiaomi did for the mi 10 ultra but not any phone after that, not sure if that's 100% correct though).

Going past 65w I think is of diminishing returns and overheating and damage from the power supply the changer in the case of the gaming phone is so worries some
I think it would be better too just put a bigger battery in the gaming phone increasing battery size too 7000mah or 8000mah and improve power management so the battery life is dubbed and going through less change cycles be best

The reason for this with black shark is poor cooling system bloatware also a reason to not like them along many sneaky downgrades or problems with them from Xiaomi
If any brand definitely bad it is Xiaomi they let there phone get too dangerous temperature and lock out temperature monitoring and stuff I have heard
I have heard Asus makes quality build laptop
I don't know of what quality there monitors are some problems I heard with there GPUs
The reliably of a product is very important and sign of good brand for example I know the Nubia red magic phone are built well and last
Lenovo as is called the Chinese dell for being reliable only durability a weakness on there Lenovo legion dual 2 phones this problem was fixed on the Lenovo legion 90
Am unsure about the Asus brand as some of there products seen too be just fine we'll others such as there ROG line of phone really nice design with screen on back might not be built well phones ?
The Asus ROG phone do have some of the best processor of each year a overclocked processor at that just am worry if this brand is good or not as for reliably sake
Some of there products I heard are faultly
A smartphone with good cooling system and build quality made too be reliable and durable not overheat either should be able last for many years even with heavy gaming every day

mexicanparrot, 04 Sep 2022Paid by these other companies to try to write negative reviews about ROG phone? You're no... moreIt is not paid to write negative about ASUS ROG Phone, you can read a lot of complain at ASUS official Zenforum regarding those complain, also can read those real complain from real owner of the ROG smartphone. Perhaps the reliability issues are stem from the bad design, poor material, or simply just because gaming smartphone is still new and not suitable for overclocking and challenge the heat limits.
Sin, 31 Aug 2022The Rog line of phone I have seen a lot of compliments about it not being reliable And it ... moreIt is because the ROG line use cheap material, ASUS might be one of the best in designing gaming laptop, but not for gaming smartphone. Or can say partly because smartphone is not the same as laptop which can have more cooling and easier to dissipate heat, while smartphone is a lot smaller, has much less room for cooling even though many cooling parts already built into the smartphone but still not enough for long period of gaming with highest possible game setting. I don't think it is lacking behind Redmagic/Legion/Blackshark, might be the current smartphone itself is still not suitable for serious gaming. Not meaning for any smartphone when labelled as gaming can be abused for long period of gaming and abused for simultaneous fast charging and gaming.
lol theres no zenfone 9 flip..i hope there is zenfone 10 flip with sd slot
Why thîs almost perfect smartphone isn't upgrading to android 13!?

But higher price vs there competition
People have had ASU ROG phones brick there's some know problems with them
If any brand has paid for reviews it's Asus ROG gaming phone's in the gaming market but most likely just biases thinking it's better because it's more expensive
but tech reviewer's are hostile too gaming smartphone just nitpicking made up problems or lie's are painful too hear them say such bogus about them
Tech reviewer's hype terrible value phones
such as Samsung Galaxy phones with exyno processor google pixel with google tensor or the iPhone that's only one step up from a feature phone it's barely even a proper phone
The other reason this terrible advise is there all phone that have poor hardware and the iphone being too unbalanced in specs
All the popular crappy over hyped phones that are massively overpriced expensive especially the iphone tech reviewer's favorite that's taken away everything from the phone that's not nailed down and the box had same treatment removed everything
Tech reviewer's do seen too unjustified reasons too prefer Asus ROG over the Lenovo legion gaming phones or Nubia red magic gaming phones
Your paying for the hardware as simple as that
For gaming value for money is important
It's possible ASU ROG is the best but it's overpriced and might not even be the best gaming phone
Well at least it's got 2 changers in the box coming with it plus dual changering ports so Asus ROG is good
The ASU ROG phone lack built in fans and can't probably cool themselves with a passive cooling system the active fan that attach too the back of the phone not the best good solution but still a step up from most phone's

AnoM, 21 Apr 2022Not the best by 2021, but definitely underrated.
All thanks to poor publicity, and also the ... moreThe Rog line of phone
I have seen a lot of compliments about it not being reliable
And it just stop working after a year
The problem only made worse by the fact that the asu Rog line of phone are behind their competitors Lenovo legion & Nubia red magic and don't even have built-in fans and have less storage and no SSD
Yet the asu Rog phone cost the most and said too be the best 🤔
The ZenFone 8 flip phone a much better price just less multi tasking powers because only 8gb ram Vs a more reasonable 18gb ram that is the standard
Possibly better designed camera still flagship Snapdragon processor
I do think the asu ZenFone 8 flip there's only a handful of phones better than it
Yeah asu Rog needs fix reliable problems has got too either reduce pricing or improve specs by a lot in order too out match the there competition
this is a best mobile for camera for software for gaming for anything u want because Asus have a best software for everything and unless when u can a best software u can do everything u want
