4.5 hrs of usage that you mentioned is on screen time?
With jelly bean, i was loosing 1% charge every 3 mins while screen was on. After updating to kitkat, battery life improved drastically (1% every 7-10mins with screen on) for a couple of hours. But after that, it reduced and becam worse than it was during jelly bean. 1% every 1.5-2 minutes.
Brightness always 0 & only 1 ap running at a time. 3.5-4hrs of onscreen time with 2g on and not much aps running in the background. Using greenify, CM antivirus, Clean master, All aps r hibernated except for CM antivirus. With jelly bean i was getting an onscreen time of 4.5-5hrs.
I querried Asus about this and this is what they said -

hey anybody knows from where to update my asus zenfone 5 to 4.4 kitkat?
Amar, 08 Dec 2014can u honestly tell me about its battery life?The only downside of the Zenfone 5 is its battery. If your a heavy user in applications and always connected to 3G or wi-fi, the battery drains so fast. A maximum of 4 and 1/2 hours at least. But if your using it as a regular phone for text and call, the battery last at least a day and a half. But like what I always say, with its full packed features which is way beyond my expected price tag, who am I to complain. By the way, most electronic stores in the mall in Metro Manila who distributed Asus Zenfone 5 are already sold out. You have to make special order and wait for at least a week or 2.
When I got my Zenfone5 a week ago, I was very, very happy with its performance. Way beyond my expectation. With the name ASUS with so much features bundled to a Smart Phone which is way beyond its competitive price tag, who am I to complain? Visited the mall earlier and many are looking for that Smart Phone. Guess what? Already sold out! The only disadvantage of the Zenfone5 is its battery. I'm a heavy user in applications as well as wi-fi connectivity, and I realize that it drains its battery very fast. But then again, like what I said earlier - with the price tagged with that Smart Phone, who am I to complain? I'll give it 3 1/2 to 4 stars out of 5.

For regular usages; wifi and data are seldom use for facebook , messenger , viber and surfing ,mainly texting and calling and as alarm clock. It will last almost a day. Mine is not rooted yet.
