got it on july 29 to replace my stolen lenovo p780. DISASTROUS EXPERIENCE.
Camera quality is awful - dancing lines and distortion esp when i need to use higher ISO. hv to keep it at AUTO ISO to prevent those dancing lines coming out to wreak image havoc. battery also becomes HOT when i am surfing websites and streaming Youtube vids.
All this shit within a week of getting it. Sent it to the Msian ASUS service centre- was told the repairs would take a week and they dont give 1to1 replacements. rude staff there too. i eventually harangued the dealer i bought it from to give me a new set.
the ASUS qwerty keyboard is annoying as fuck with that dumbass autocorrection settings menu that keeps popping up when u are typing. very disruptive. switched to Google keyboard - the swype typing function hiccups by giving me the words that are either truncated or way different from the letters i traced on the keyboard.
THIS FIRST ASUS DEVICE WILL BE MY LAST.
Lenovo p780 rules- ASUS needs to STFU about innovation n perfection, and learn from lenovo to make devices for those who mean business in what they do.

But More internal memory is good for read/write speed compare to external and also more reliable. If you afford go for 16gb. On amazon.in you will get lesser price if stock is still there.

prashaanth k, 08 Aug 2014hi prasad...gonna place an order fr zenfone 5 tomo...saw ur reviews...i dnt use the phne much ... moreOplus is giving goog specs at INR 7999/- but i don't know the quality of hardware and also Brand is not that established, Where as ASUS is a well known brand with global presence. Here you will get brand assurance. as far as my experience, whenever i query anything to their customer care, they responded well. Of course they are giving quality hardware. Yes sound from speaker is little low but quality is fine, generally we used to listen songs through headset and sound quality from headset is very good though the build quality of headset provided is not that great but sound production is good. Use audio wizard. iF STILL YOU WANT TO INCREASE VOLUME THEN U CAN USE APPS FROM PLAY STORE. Phone looks amazing. Battery improved a lot after system updates. Till now they given 4 system updates. GAMES ARE ALSO RUNNING FINE WITH IT. Camera is awesome at this price range. Good decision.
Good news. for those who are waiting for Zenfone 5 8GB.....
10000 units of ASUS Zenfone 5 to be available in stock on Flipkart Tomorrow Onwards August 9, 2014 Saturday.

litz, 05 Aug 2014The 16gb is better as its more faster compared to the 8 GB :) both models have 2 GB of RAM and have no difference in performance. only internal storage is different i.e 8GB and 16 GB.
