Problems I faced :
First, the battery is not good enough. I get one full day. No gaming. Simple call usage and fair use of internet.
Battery has to improve for sure.
After KITKAT update, phone stopped identifying the SIM slots. I was very very angry. The phone was of no use.
I ordered a replacement from FLIPKART. It took some time, but finally I got my replacement.
Now I have not done any system updates. So its working smooth. I am worried that the moment I do the OTA KITKAT update, I will start getting problems. So staying and playing safe here with 'out of the box' OS version.
Looks and feel is awesome. Display is good enough. Camera is good.
For the price(9K) I paid, I am happy right now. Hope I don't face anything major again
ASUS, please please work on SIM slot detecting issues. Other issues can be worked out, but if the phone doesn't identify SIM, then what's the point having a phone.

Obviously, it has an unimpressive CPU, grainy screen, and only 1 GB of RAM.

Hi guys! I bought mine last Oct 10, 2014. It worked well and good till this morning. Last thing I remembered doing with it was using it to browse through FB. I fell asleep, woke up the next day, and found that the phone was still working fine and was still connected to the internet but it had low battery. I tried to charge it right after but found that the phone was not charging. I thought that it might be the charger so I tried to use the charger for another device and it worked well. I tried turning off the device to charge it as well but it didn't charged all it gave me was the icon that it was charging but the green indicator that shows the progress of the charge was not moving or was showing any indication of movement. As I pulled out the charger from the usb port, I noticed that the charge icon didn't go away. I waited for it to go away and then tried to charge via USB cable though my computer but I still had no luck. A little later the dead android icon came on saying "no command." I brought my phone to a service center and they told me to wait for their diagnosis for 3-5 days. They tried to do the same and the condition was still the same.
- I never left my phone charging alone neither did I overcharge it. I always made sure I had close watch for I had previous experiences with overcharging my other phones.
- I never downloaded any games nor went to compromised sites. My phone was just for calls, emails, text messages,taking pictures via instagram and facebook.
- The day before I was still able to charge my phone both via an electric outlet and through a USB port. It went well no issues at all.
- Usually my phone last for 1-2 days before charging again. Which makes me suspect that the problem might have been caused by leaving the phone in a state of inactive internet browsing that could have caused an overheat through the night though the phone was not even the normal temperature when in use.
- My local ASUS customer service tells me that the problem might have been caused by the recent upgrade to Android Kitkat version. Unfortunately, I had my phone set to find updates and automatically install them whenever there is one.
I just hope that it can be fixed since the phone is just 45 days with me.
