So happy with this, I felt like I got a bargain coz it's cheaper but the specs are good. Only problem I had was that it froze twice and I had to wait for the battery to drain, since it's built in and I can't just remove it. Good phone though.

Review After using for 1 and Half month.
First I will go with the pros and cons and later, user experiance:
1. Stunning rear camera with 13 MP and shoots upto 51 MP in super resolution mode but without flash.
2. 3000 MAh battery charges in 2 hours with non fast charging adapter and lasts for a complete day with always on H+(3G)
3. 1080P (Z00AD Model) display offers great looks and GPU is good enough to render most of the regular formats with HW decoder(PowerVR G6430).
4. 5MP front camera is good enough for selfies with the Beatify feature.
5. Build quality is good stunning looks (unless you ruin with protectors :-) )
1. Mild heating (only when playing huge games not on using data or on calls) but far better than most of the other branded mobiles.
2. Size is not handy 5.5" is little glitchy if you small hands, better experiance without any cases.
3. x86 architecure is not as par with arm v7 out there (snapdragon latest SOC).
4. No headphones in box, the sound is pure and clear* (when using SoundMagic ES18, Phillips shp2700, Nokia COLOUD)
5. Sim slots are tricky few standard micro sim cards are loosely fitting, Sim cards that are cut to make micro are fitting well.(Just keep a small plaster to ensure positioning)
Software Pros and Cons:
1. Zen UI is great but launcher gulps 150MB+ ram. Most of the ZenUI apps are very useful.
2. Stand by state uses 1.3 GB+ ram (This is not a con as everyone think, Maximum Resource usage gives maximum performance on Linux kernels).
3. It would be great if the Google Play services are optional, all the google apps are pre installed. How ever most of the stock apps are uninstallable unlike the zennfone5.
4. Proximity stops to work with the Tampered glass. How ever u can use with PowerButton ends call if you love to use a tampered glass.
5. Regular updates to UI, System fixing every single bug, and i have recieved about 500MB updates in 35 days every update is good.
6. Still on android 5.0 waiting for 5.1.2.
1. Not so handy but will become comfortable within a week of usage.
2. Will love the display and the camera.
3. Heating while running HD games like Dead Trigger and Asphalt 8.
4. Double tap to wake up is added for more convience.
1. Antutu Bench mark on Z00AD 2GB RAM is 46000+
2. OTA updates will not install after rooting ( as system image will be modified ). How ever NON OTA updates will work, you can download full image from asus website and keep in root of SD card and auto install.
3. No confirmed working cynogenmod is available.
