I heared that some issues in this phone like
1. Much dead pixels on screen
2. Some problems with facebook
3. Bluetooth not work properly
I have 2 and have played with many more, haven't seen any with dead dots.
Facebook problem can be fixed by installing version 10, or upgrading OS - it's under downloads on Asus site. Download file, unzip it. Plug phone in PC with USB cable and open the new "drive" that appears - dump file in root folder. Unplug the cable when done - it will notify you that an update was found and ask if you want to install it, choose yes. That's it.
No problem on Bluetooth with Jabra headset and iPhone dock bluetooth receiver. Not sure what problems you are referring to. Connections are not dropped and quality of sound is quite good. Didn't try more than calls and streaming music through it though.
So no to all 3 you mentioned.

2.yes connect mobile to laptop and tv also to mirror the display in laptop use software PC LINK.
3.3hrs asphalt 8 consume only 30% and battery last for a day very easily if you are an heavy user.

Yes, there is an option in the Settings under Apps to prefer internal storage or use SD card "if app supports it" - so it's up to App. But in my case majority had no issues to use SD card. There's also a Move command in there where you can just select apps and move them to SD... or back.
i have brought this mobile , it dail pad there is no such 3G video call option
unable to charge the phone in PC , it show as charging but not, apart from that while using games phone get heat with higher games , some one can tell me how do i able to charge my asus zenfone through pc with data cable , u can just mail me email@example.com
Sob, 15 Jul 2014What about its battery life? Many say its worse..
Can I have a opinion from a user who bought... moreBattery life?
In my case 1 day heavy use, 2 days light use.
Taken off the charger at 7-8 am, down to about 5-10% at the end of the next day's 10 pm if I don't use it much, or around 30% at the end of same day if I use it a lot.
If you use screen or camera a lot, it will of course be shorter. In a test, it went from 100 to 9% on playing FullHD MKV video file with max. speaker and 50% brightness on the screen (1.5 hour video files) for a little over 9 hours.
All this time it was on 3G with full signal. Tower's just next to my place. Wifi and Bluetooth were off, location services were disabled during this test.
Ali, 14 Jul 2014My question... What about its wifi signals? It automatically disconnected wifi when it went ... moreDepends on your power settings. On Ultra Saver it will cut the wifi when it goes to sleep, on balanced it will not. On custom - well, whatever you choose.

OK, Android is not (yet) optimised for Atom CPU, so you might get occasional glitches like on scrolling the screen, or on some apps there's a temporary freeze of a second, before it continues.
The What's next keeps crashing. It's wonderful piece of software, just doesn't work.
Battery is built in and replacing it, although not hard, voids warranty as you need to remove inner plate and screws - and one of them has warranty sticker on.
Front cam is nothing to write home about, and back cam is decent, but not excellent. The much touted night mode isn't anywhere near as good as Asus tries to make you believe.
Internal memory is limited but you can easily expand with MicroSD card up to 64 GB. You can set the camera, downloads, music, even apps to use SD card. Class 10 recommended for FullHD video.
HD and SD video camera sucks. FullHD is actually quite good in reasonable light.
The construction quality may be lacking. One of the 2 phones I have has a very tight USB connector (not fault of phone but cable that came with charger in the box), and a very hard to press power button - the other one is perfect on these, but has slightly misaligned camera, a fraction of mm, but still annoying. Although that could be issues of start of production.
The speaker and the inner headphone distort ringing sound pretty badly.
The volume on headphones is not high enough. Should be louder.
The notification light is broken out of the box. You can get a free widget from Motorola to compensate, though.
Voice quality is OK, but not perfect. It also does not filter out background noise well. That said, most other smartphones are no better or even worse.
But worst of all, the power button is too high to press comfortably in single-hand operation, and the 3 sensor buttons below the screen are not illuminated.
That's the disadvantages.
But all that said, it is still a great value for money, and a pleasure to use, despite all of the above. Some of the things may be fixed in firmware and OS updates, some others by improving production process (and may have already been fixed in the phones reaching the shelves now), and some... well, we'll just have to live with. That's the price of a compromise to get it in this price range.
DjRaj, 13 Jul 2014Can anyone tell me tht does zenfone 5 8gb hav 2gb ram n intel 2560 1.6ghz , zenfone5 16gb hav ... moreThere are different versions, some with dual SIM, some with 4G instead, with 8, 16 and 32 GB flash, and 1 or 2 GB RAM, 1.6 or 2.0 or 2.3 GHz Atom processors. You can't generalise like that - Asus could put whatever combination they consider appropriate for that specific market together. The 16 GB Taiwanese models are 1.6 or 2.0 GHz and have 2 GB RAM and dual SIM with 3G. The European models have 16 or 32 GB RAM and 1.6 or 2.0 GHz Atom and single SIM with LTE modem. But that's just what I've seen for sale. Doesn't mean other combinations don't exist. Given how specs are written on the phone, I am certain they could be anything.
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2014Sir,
Appreciate that you are helping others by your experiences.
Want to check with you
1.... moreDear Sir,
My version is ASUS_T00J(A501CG), it is worldwide version, and below it's written "A501CG,WHITE,WW-3G,D,8GB EMMC+2G RAM,INTEL CLT+Z2560,5/8M WWE-ANDROID,N/A,N/A"
Volume buttons do not wake it up. Only power button does. Although there is some Daydream mode, where you can choose how it behaves when off (like showing a faint clock, and what it reacts to). But that's likely only limited to charging, practically, since it's sure to drain battery otherwise.
And yes, when you make a call, there is REC button on the screen and it makes very high quality recording of the conversation. Note however that some people complained over a bug where their voice wasn't recorded when they had a speakerphone enabled.

The battery performance is bit poor as read in many reviews, with the non-removable battery how could we manage? Before a year we might need to replace battery.
One major thing I wanted to confirm from your side is Signal Reception, how good in this angle?
The cover/case available is costly….is it?
Plsssss Reply. Thank you again.
