I am loving my Zenfone 5. I work online so I needed a phone that supports at least 3G (HSPA+). I am subscribed to 2 network providers for business continuity. And Zenfone 5 is that answer to the solution I need. Thank you ASUS.
Dont know why are you people so excited about kitkat.Kitkat update was a huge problem and i got downgraded to jellybean by service centre.
I am using jellybean 4.3 with 188.8.131.52 version with full manual update and as before my phone is running superb excellent.i am very very impressed with zenfone 5,my battery lasts 6-7 hours after 3G use.
Check ur network signals,decrease ur brightness,clear all background apps ur battery will also be fine like mine,set location access only to network disable wifi.
I have 125 apps and games installed on my phone.
Is asus really releasing further kitkat update in upcoming weeks?? plz confirm if it is official........

So you are too facing issue of battery drain?
And what do you mean by "it wont open"
Can you please tell me how much battery backup you get and what do you mean by heavy usage. I mean like gaming,chat,call etc in terms of usage hours such as 30-40min of gaming,1-2 hours facebook etc
And if you know a good app for battery saving, please let me know
Thanks for reply
I never have any problem with My Zen 5, it's one of the most amazing smartphones today. Nice interface. User-Friendly features. Fast inet connections! Thank you Asus!
I recently successfully upgraded my zenfone 5 to android kit Kat version (4.4.2), it's really proving great ... Thanks to ASUS on this service; Response of phone much better and better battery backup; even better on aesthic ground(s). . .
Suggestion: I wish ASUS enhances its battery mAh to around 2500mAh & maintains its variable thickness (viz. 5.5"-10.3") feature in its design,- which provided the best design concept to provide the perfect grip . . .
