How bad is the heating issue of this phone? Is this unbearable or some how acceptable? How is the audio sound quality of this phone?
@sam Bro I''m not a fan of rooting android device until I'm facing some serious inssues with my device. But if you really want to root your device here it is:
However, I'd still go with the stock rom and now it's updated to lollipop
You get an excellent features at a reasonable price and then you drained it all with shabby Battery performance. What's the fun of having an excellent Smartphone which dies with in few hours of moderate use. ASUS better get its act together before people loose interest in otherwise exceptional device.
Did anyone(zenfone 5 users) updated their phone to lollipop.
Please share the pros and cons if observed and changes in the system.
Thanks for sharing...

i have purchased my asus 6 months ago,it's having lots of problem,it has a 1 gb ram but still,if i press the menu option it takes a lot of time to open.
the camera is bad,its not having the quality of 8mp,the pictures are having so much grains and takes a lot of time to get saved to my gallery
Irina Natasha, 20 Jul 2015Which one is better, Asus Zenfone 5, Lenovo A7000, or Samsung Grand Prime?Asus zenfone 5 is an awesome phone. I'm using this phone from last 9 months and there is no issues like hanging or lagging.camera is awesome.gaming performance is good.go for it
I can tell you, Zenfone 5 is a very decent phone. Yeah, the battery isn't good enough to survive a full day, but it never is a very big problem. You can use battery saving modes to get extra few hours. For me, I get 15 hours after almost a year of using it.
The performance of the phone is awesome for me, it's fast, gaming performance is good too. 2 GB Ram keeps the phone smooth.
Though the phone's outlook gives the impression of a cheap phone, it's built quality is very good, I don't use any back covers and after using for a year with 2 drops from almost 5ft height, it's still looks new :)
Camera is ok for me. It could be better, but what more can I expect from Asus for this price? Oh, it has the official Lollipop now.
It definitely is one of the best phone on the market for its price, even the phones those cost 100 dollars more than this on.
Irina Natasha, 20 Jul 2015Which one is better, Asus Zenfone 5, Lenovo A7000, or Samsung Grand Prime?I would say, go for Zenfone 5. Best phone for its price.
Irina Natasha, 20 Jul 2015Which one is better, Asus Zenfone 5, Lenovo A7000, or Samsung Grand Prime?Neither is good, Samsung has its own lagging issues, lenovo is total crap,.zenfone 5 is pretty good in usage, except the battery and sound and its old hardware(although hardware doesn't interfere with performance), if you can raise budget to 13k go for zenfone 2 or OnePlus One(16gb version refurbished now available on overkart.com) OnePlus One is simply a superb phone
If you still want it in 10k budget go for Huawei honor 4X or 4C
