Not a good phone at this point in time.. phone was good but battery drains so fast that you would need to carry a power bank all the time. With 1 to 2 hrs of use phone will be dead. I have not seen so poor speaker sound in any other make, I have removed the mess which is placed in the back cover but not much use. I am writing this comment after 10 months.
Mr.Bond, 17 May 2016Total waste of money Pls DO NOT BUY ANY ASUS SMARTPHONE.....I bought this phone last year June... moretrue. i dropped mine from a short distance and the lcd got destroyed (only 3rd or 4th time it fell) also the phones performance and battery deteriorated very considerably in 2 to 3 months after purchase. Really Bad Experience. :/
Total waste of money Pls DO NOT BUY ANY ASUS SMARTPHONE.....I bought this phone last year June'2015....he worked good for 6 months and then the contact screen started hanging,the phone also started to hang. I hardly make 1 or 2 calls a day which last only for 5 mins but the phone battery drains so fast. the phone charging adapter gets heated. I went to Asus service center they changed the battery but still the battery drains the same way and they did not change the charging adapter bcoz it was more than 6 months....So friends don't waste your hard earned money in buying Asus.

Anonymous, 26 Apr 2016Is there an official lollipop update for zenfone 5 A501CG? Yes, released long long ago, but if I remember correctly, it has never been delivered OTA. I had to check for updates, go to Zen Talk from that screen, download the update, put it in /, and turn the phone off - on. Subsequent L updates, possibly except one, were OTA as usual. Works very good for an Android.
I have been using this mobile for past one and half year. The battery is draining very quickly while playing games and browsing as well. And iam facing heat problem too.
I've be using this phone almost 2 yrs plus..now cannot install wechat & fb . Is this phone cannot support that device..
I'ved been using this phone for 2 years already. Until now no lags even if memory storage were almost full. So loved this phone, camera and all its features were unique and up to date. Asus costumer service is fast on your concerns. If i will buy a new phone.... ASUS is my 1st choice. High Specs but Low in priced.
Ive been using zenfone 5 for a year and the only problem is the battery.when all my application run ,the battery very very fast drained.
