by the way, why this phone isn't powered by the Z2580 or even Z3530 instead? It would be better.
Yesterday asus release new firmware for this phone. I have apply to my phone. So far there is some improvement in battery
I am using this about 3 days from now and i am so concern about the battery life. I used it with wifi on.. Super low Brightness using an app.. Browsing and Messaging and only lasted about 5-6 hours..😧😧.. is it normal? and sometimes the touch will click anything and my home will go swipe from left to right without even touching the screen.. Anyways The phone I rate it 95/100
So I bought this yesterday but found that it will inly charge if unit is turned on. If off, screen animation shows it charging but if turned on, charge hasn't increased at all. Please help.
Has anybody received an update for the phone or is it just for the 4gig version?
yusuf, 03 Jun 2015I think it's normal for the battery life, all Asus phones has same battery drawbacks. for the ... moreYeah, 3rd day of using it, and I have to say battery life improved(as how I feel), since now it can go on for the whole day before it needs recharging.
So, Intel Atom processors do consume a lot of power as compared to my Lenovo A680's mediatek? Since, accdg to specs, thia asus zenfone2 packs an additional 500mah than with what the lenovo A680 has.
I'm just troubled with the heat it produces when using the camera for a long time. Forgetting all these drawbacks, I can say that this is a great phone for its price tag at PHP7995.
Thanks yusuf for the info!

Got this phone last sunday at SM. I want to sk other people who alrrady owns this phone, how long does the battery last with a full charge? I'm very curious since mine only lasts around 12 hours or less with wifi. P.S. Just browsing facebook and gmail and replying to some SMS. Oh and it gets hot while simply browsing these 2 websites. No other apps are open ans it ia in ULTRA-power saving mode.
My 1 yr old Lenovo A680 has its drawbacks, but using it the same way with the same websites still givs me maximum of a day and a half with 1 full charge. And it doesn't get hot as the zenfone2.
I want to know if this is normal, so I could get a replacement if ever the zenfone2 I bought ia defective.
Rayyan, 31 May 2015second problem is....After call in/out connected. my screen goes blank without anything respon... morethe reason for the blank screen is because your using tempered glass which has no hole at sensor..im experiencing the same before..after change the tempered glass no problem anymore
second problem is....After call in/out connected. my screen goes blank without anything respond, even the power button. Unless the another person disconnect the calls, the the phone can wake up back to normal. You can watch my youtube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AL9s-PEz20
Ram Foysal, 29 May 2015Battery is 2500 mAhCan anybody comment on the battery life? Is it better than zenfone 5?
I like its camera, lcd....good. Overall is ver good. But here i want to let you know the bad side of this Phone. I use it for 2 days only at this moment i post this.
1) DAMN hard to open the back case, i swear i hate this stupid design because it doesnt make sense...your nail may hurt and maybe later can sue ASUS.
2) My device LCD will goes blank when calls connected, (in/out) even whatsapp call. Its totally blank, ever power button cannot do anything unless the another person disconnect the conversation. There is something function that so called NO BACKGROUND DURING CALL....this damn thing cannot use too.
This phone is sucks. I never regret using LENOVO.....K900 until now....Xperia too.....first time with ASUS....like stupid.
