Any disadvantages for this phone? Digi support volte for zenfone 8?

Currently the price go down to just 1999. Really makes me regret buying SE2 a month ago.

I've set charging limit to 80%, so going down to 16%, it is 65% total usage. This much usage gives me 4h 50m SoT.
If you do the math, 100% usage should give you around 7h. This is pretty consistent with a lot of reviewers too.
I provided the AccuBattery numbers as well in case anyone is interested, though I'm aware AccuBattery is not accurate.

If the screen on time is important, consider iPhone 13 Pro or a bigger phone.

Nice detailed review. I just want a small android phone, but most androids now are 6.5" brick. Too big for me.

Currently I'm using iphone SE2. I can get 4 hours screen on time from 80% down to 20% or 5-6 hours from 100% to 20%. I thought that the zenfone 8 would have double the battery life with its 4000mah battery. sweat.gif Guess I have to stick with this iphone then.. the battery is stupidly small, but I can easily charge the phone from anything and it consistently charges 50% in 30 minutes. And for some reason I didn't notice the Sony Xperia 10 III before purchasing this SE2... really regretting my purchase here lol.

Make sure use the right Telco if volte is important to you
I think the ramdump problem have died down

ah, good catch. using digi, looks like volte still not available for zenfone 8.

how many years of update still available for this phone?

If you dont really care about update go ahead
Unless you vvip and got connections where your mobile no can be recognised easily

A### Phones if taken good care can last > 3 years

one last question, how long is the battery life? can last whole day with 60hz refresh rate? usually i spend 4 hours web browsing, facebook, shopee and utube.

saw someone sell zenfon 8 for 1.1k with minor chip at the edge of the screen.

I set mine to auto. With auto or 60hz you have more than enough juice to do what you mentioned above.

how many hours of screen on time usually do you get from 100% to 20%?

Too expensive to justify to be honest. At that price point, I expect it to be near perfect, at least matching the S22 bezel uniformity, tele lense and wireless charging.

i only need compact and good battery with okay camera.

how much does s22 cost these day without “free gifts”?

really interested,but the price tough to swallow.

problem is software support is 2 years only,if wait one more year then buy then not really worth la. sad.gif
*
oh ya, i checked website for update log for zenfone 6 released in 2019... only 2 years supported. lol. thought it was 3 years.

but then again, it's not like the phone stopped functioning after 2 years. hmm.gif i used budget redmi before this, so it doesn't seem to be that bad.
