No the battery isnt the most important thing for me as my old smartphone was very weak at this point too. But overall is it a worthy device because i am pretty impressed by its specs, performance and design?And by th way tomazz did asus hire u or something? Thx about everything man.
haidersoftt, 26 Aug 2014Hello Tomazz
I decided to buy Zenfone 5 from outside India.
Little bit I am confused , which... moreFirst off all make sure you get model with 2 GB RAM, and WW, NOT CN, TW or CHT model.
Whether you get 8 or 16 GB is up to you.In Thailand not cost 5990 THB, which is 190$. So if they cost the same, take 16 GB.
Colours are Black, White, Gold, Red, and Purple. Some are not available in all territories.
But note that only difference is back plate colour. You can even buy different colour backplate for 30$ off eBay...
Be careful who you are buying from and check model before you buy.
I do not recommend buying it from China, Macau, Hong Kong or Taiwan, as they have different firmware tailored to that territory and could even have different modem or network standards support.
If you need more info, ask.
someone please help, i brought zenfone 5, 8gb about 20 days ago, it was third zenfone in my family so there is no doubt how much i liked this phone, the other two phone i purchased from flipkart had received about 5 or 6 updated so far, over the air, but the current one has came with firmware 1.15(ww)and i was consistently checking for updates but never got a single uddate finally i got an update of about 40mb which bring my phone to 1.17, i know its latest one but i want to know the updates asus skipped for me, is a reason to worry? because i remember my other same phones got few updates like, for increasing brightness of LED when capturing photos, as i LED was bright enough when using it as torch but when capturing photos its lag a little or remains dull, same experience im having with my current phone, also downloaded whole firmware(1.6) to resolve this issue from asus website for ww suk but my phone not taking it may be because of its 1.16 and my phone is already on 1.17 so it will be a downgrade... now someone helppppppppp.....please...
Abhi, 26 Aug 2014True i am facing same problem with this device...With battery or camera?
kunal, 26 Aug 2014how is the quality and durability of this phoneOn quality, well it is not only designed but also produced by Asus in entirety, and looks far better put together than other phones in this price range.
Inner parts selection also does not suggest this being a budget phone as most parts are same as on the Padfone series.
It is actually hard to understand how Asus managed to drop production cost by 75% when you compare them on the inside.
We can't talk about durability on a phone that is only out for a few months...
So it is better than most if not all in this price range but obviously not in the same league as top end offerings from competitors, although surprisingly close.
I decided to buy Zenfone 5 from outside India.

A-VED143, 26 Aug 2014thankyou tomazz what about battery backup after this update Battery life is improved in standby, and supposedly has somewhat more optimised power management, so it does last longer, but don't expect miracles.
I heared form many people about ASUS ZEN 5. It's better than other company's phone but I want to know about customer serivce if I will be facing any problem while operating this one. Please advise
If you're so worried about battery life, just buy a high-capacity powerbank.
i am satisfied with the product because the battery long lasting and the camera is beautiful

Hey everyone. I have been seeing lot of reviews about this phone cause i really like it. My old phone was a samsung galaxy s4 mini and i know that specs r way better on this phone. The only problem that zenfone seems to have based on everyones opinion is battery life.Any other problem and should i buy this phone? Is it the battery good enough and will it be better when kitkat update arrives? And which color is the best?
