Just bought a brand new Asus 6Z phone and I received it today. After unboxing it, I was quite excited to turn it on but to my surprise the battery was completely drained out. It had 0% charge left. It seemed quite suspicious to me. I had to charge it first in order to turn it on. Is this normal? Do phones sometimes come like this? It is the first that I have encountered something like this. It has never happened with me before whenever I have got a new phone.

PS: Apparently the phone box didn't have seal either which raised the suspicion even more but then I saw a couple of unboxing videos on youtube and found out that Asus 6Z doesn't really come with a seal on the box.

  • Mine had a transparent sticker on both sides of the box. Maybe your seller was checking whether everything works to avoid returns and forgot to turn off. Dunno. 
  • My box also came sealed with transparent stickers. The battery was charged at 60%.
  • battery was charged for me... if everything is working thn should not be an issue..

    Battery seems to be working fine as of now but I am facing some other issues.

    Don't know what was the deal but when I turned the phone on after charging, it did start like a new phone where you have to setup certain things. But there was one weird thing. After the phone was completely setup, I went to call history and saw that emergency no. 112 was already dialed in it that too thrice. This confirms that the phone was indeed checked for something before dispatching.
  • Calling 112 surely is a great way to test a smartphone!
