    Can you tell me about some problems you faced with ZF2?
    On paper ZP2 is clear winner but I want actual reviews...

    Agree... but most of the people use some covers and basically your covers reflects quality not device
    yes without protector, it feels a bit cheap... way cheaper than OP2 and OPX but not cheaper than OPO IMO

    The Zenfone2 is now my backup phone and for the price, it's pretty good, but like @Ceasedd said in his post, mine too has had a lot of problems, primarily with phantom "100% data erases" that randomly occurred 3 x in a two week period. All of a sudden I'd feel my phone getting very warm, I'd take a look and I'd see the little gren android guy and the message "erasing all data". There was nothing I could do but let it erase (took about 1 hour) and then let it re-install all the data from a back up which took about 2 hours (not including having to reset all the icons, readjust certain settings and passwords that didn't get backed up). Perhaps it was a corrupt file or application, but after the thrid time, I decided to put it back in the box and use only in emergencies.
    I'd go for the X if it was between those two phones. right now I'm using the OP2 and loving it....I also have the OPO as another backup.

    opx probably while as an owner of both OPO and OP2 i must say i have to pass on that one as well since they left out too much this time. would i need another phone i'd take the OPO instead. i mean not only am i not willing to change my networks to 2.4GHz, but then i would loose a big part of all the public or gastronomy networks as well. further the OPX is not much cheaper than the ONE but much less equiped. no way this time, sorry

    yeah, I hear you. Now that I think of it, I wasn't thrilled with the Zenfone camera, either. But I rarely take photos anyway so I guess I never really noticed it.

    Thanks for loggin in man...
    Anyways I just wanted to know real user experience...
    I already knew that camera is bad, its fixed focus cam what would you expect from those... I use dslr so compared to that OPx camera is like shit too... Only comparable camera is LG G4 that camera is amazing and second options might be Flagship samsungs and apple...
    I also found so far that screen is not bright enough for ZP2... I hate that as I need good screen... for me even OP2 screen lacks that feel but I can manage, hope OPx Super AMOLED screen will do the trick... LG G4 screen is amazing

    I badly need dual sim phone which works on WCDMA band 4 (1700/2100 mhz freq) with NFC support as I am already using it a lot and in future its use is gonna increase only
    I dont care about camera, Fast Charging or Wireless charging or even Benchmark scores

    Looks like OP2 has everything except NFC (they made a big blunder) so I am just looking for other options... So until they release OP3 (hopeflly with NFC) I need some good phone. OPX looks promissing but it just has 16gb storage and as I need dual sim I will not be able to use external memory card

    ZP2 has everything but I dont know about user experience, that is why I made this thread...

    Zf2 probably stuck with Android 5.1 with the Zen UI OS and OPX can receive soon Android 6 upgrade with OOS 3, its better choice OPX
