Why Its better than other Phone's?
Am purchasing this phone after a very long wait for almost a year and finally i had planned to buy Moto G but still kept on waiting for some new releases add finally purchased Asus Zenfone 5 (Gold).As i wanted a phone for a price less than 10K and moto g was 12K,And what am having now is a Moto G killer!!!!
9.5/10 Good HD Display (5 Inch)
10/10 Ram ( 2 GB )
Mine is 8 Gigs variant,I got 4.8 Gigs for usage as am not much into games
10/10 Touch,Response & Feedback
7.5/10 Battery Just 2110 Mah
9.5/10 WiFi , Bluetooth connectivity , Tethering Excellent
9.5/10 Lag (Yes ,it lags sometimes)
9/10 For Noise Cancellation,Ear and Mouth Piece
Indication Light is dull,u can't see it from distance
No back light on buttons
Auto Rotation sometimes cause problem
Bit long and No option to put mobile strap
Speaker Sound Bit less than Moto G,But sound reproduction is just clear
Loads of preloaded apps as some might find it useful and some may not
Looks bit cheap,But can be ignored
Zen Ui,Good but it takes time to adjust with the icons and themes.
OS Jelly Bean ,Hope Kit Kat will be rolled out soon
Dual core processor,but its balanced with 2 gigs ram
No Snapdragon,Intel is also good. Intels benchmark is less compared to snapdragon
Still Couldn't check the Battery Life :,Am using it without charging from morning
70% Battery was remaining when i switched on ,and now its 20% with full browsing,gaming and multitasking.
Overall 9/10 for this product, 10/10 if we consider price vs specs
Better than Moto G,If you need Snapdragon based processor then go for Moto,Or else this is just Best Buy

Driver Issues when connecting to PC Link - Connect your phone as PTP (As camera) and run PC Link Software and it works perfect
Some claim to have issues with Facebook application crashing,As far of now,i didn't face any issue and played some games and movies and every thing is working fine.
If you feel Asus is trustworthy then u can surely go for it,Am fully satisfied with this phone

You do not kitkat to do the app transfer from internal storage to SD card....
The factory out zenfones has 4.3 and with that you can do it easily.. Follow me here on that task:
1. Settings > Apps
2. Tap on Moveables. You get a list of apps that can handle that.
3. Tap on the app and and you get the app info page.
4. Tap on "Move to device Storage" or to SD cards.
Voila ... done.
- no infrared or factory out OTG is available...
