I bought my Zenfone 5 last week and I should say, it exceeded my expectations in design and performance except for the battery life! If Asus can do something about a software update that can address the issue with the short battery life then I can say that Asus can even rock those high end devices out in the market with the ZF5. I will grade it an 8.5 out of 10. I am really amazed! I wonder if Asus will make a high end device this 2015 matching all the specs that the big OEMs out there released this year and will be releasing. For 6,995 php I already have almost everything a phone can offer. It's never laggy when I multitask and use apps. I don't play games with mine though. The screen is brilliant too! :)
amitkk, 08 Nov 2014do you play games while it heats? Yes, i'm play games then temperature increased.
How to fix problem of heating about 40-47 degrees and battery drained faster. It can be fix or not? Please suggest some app that useful.

Guys, please suggest me which one is better zenfone 5 or moto g 2nd gen?
one thing i have noticed that t solve the battery issue, the only thing asus can do is optimization, they have to make a way for apps to use less battery.. if you all had noticed, that the lowest cpu freq of this phone is 800mhz whereas in every other phone its arounf 300 mhz so even if this phone runs at lowest clock ,it still using mre battery than other phones, asus should add more lower frequencies to kernel, also there is a hope that android l will improve the battery and also cyanogen mode will bring better optimization when it will come so guys keeps the hopes up
Hi all, I am using Zenfone5 . after I update version to KitKat, I can not connect data internet APN . the screen pop up that " unfortunately, settings has stopped " . do any one here have solutions to fix this issue? I am really appreciate for your response. Thanks
can someone test & tell me if the compass & GPS function works.
Please note I'm asking about GPS & not A-GPS. So move the sim card to airplane mode & then check if you can get your location tracked.
This will be very helpful in my decision making.

Please tell me when ASUS going to give the 2.20.x update for WW version?!?! I am using the unstable version of kk updated on 3.10.14 with many bugs.. hoping for this update but Asus is not showing up...
My final opinian for this phone.. If asus manage to fix heating problem and put bigger battery.. Meaning optimase Atom for Android (if its posible) andregarding that i had togive the first back becose was defective(started to not recognise that there is sim cards in it and reboot repedetly) That phone is best for its price. No hang multiple app use whit no problem. Disent camera. Good reseption, 3g, wi-fi, exelent headphones and sound. The display is oasum too a litle bot dimm but very sharp fot the dpi 294. Finaly if you are not heavy user by this phone!!
