adjsl, 13 Oct 2014Combination of some effort can minimize the battery drain problem due to screen 1) Use Flip c... moreI appreciate your inputs adjsl, I'm also using flip cover since day 1 coz I hate to see my things scratched. it defeats the purpose of having a smart phone when you use it minimal to make it last all day... Old school phones with keypads last longer than this piece of plastic trash. I updated it to the latest kitkat with minor issue on onscreen keyboard but I still notice the battery slowly counting down. Now I purchase portable charger because the Asus Zenfone 5 has unreliable battery sad to say. I don't mind paying more for a better batt but I liked the brand ever since that's why I had to have 1. I felt betrayed. What good is a hitech device if you can't use til abused. by my usage the battery will surely not last long as I believe most rechargeables 500 life cycle charging will affect its holding capacity. its predictable that Zenfone 5 users must replace the handsets soon.
Can someone tellme what is the typical temperature of the cpu and battery when doing normal browsing and checking emails. With no games, songs or videos..mine is abt 48˚C and battery abt 38˚C. Is this ok or shall i ask for a replacement?

After I have updated to 4.4.2 Kitkat, my device lost of Google Keyboard, so I can't typing anymore, but I still can download it from third parties. And it make me feel annoyed. Anyone face same problem with me? My device type is Asus T00F which have 2GB RAM. Hope the dev fix this bug and updated in next firmware. ASAP.
Toofaan, 13 Oct 2014i have updated my Zenfone 5 to Kitkat 4.4.2 Yesterday, Now i m facing Problem, battery draini... moreI got the same problem. Mobile data not working, when I try to connect, it crashes. Updated today to kitkat. I suggest to others, don't update if it's working fine with android version 4.3. There isn't much difference. And you may get issues like this.
Ok so there are a few ups and downs for this fone
Gets heated fast
Very poor sound quality for main speaker
The battery is literally horrible (can be fixed with an update)
Very good for its prize
5.5" ips display
8 MP with pixelmaster
expandable memory till 64gb
Overall it's a great phone for its prize but if u are a heavy mobile user and use the phone all day ,keep in mind the battery is very limited so you might have to carry a power bank for the issue
I am unable to use Google text to speech which is inbuilt in my zenfone5.please guide me

No. I'm still facing that issue. I haven't tried factory reset. Not sure if that will help as I have properly update my phone. Hopefully the dev team will fix it.
