I have the 1.8 GHz version of this. It's pretty decent actually as long as you're a light to moderate user, and it lasts for 8-10 hours. Other than text/calls, I usually listen to music and web browsing most of the time. The music listening experience is good as long as you have high quality headphones like the M50 and tweak/play with the included equalizer.
If you're a heavy user, you'll at least charge it twice a day. When I played some graphic-intensive games, the phone tends to overheat for the first 15 minutes. I saw a youtube video on how long this phone takes before it shuts off when playing intensive games continuously (e.g. Modern Combat 5), and it lasts for about 3 hours. Don't buy this phone if you'll expect two days of battery life before you need to charge.

O-ten, 26 Apr 2015My budget is under 13K.And I am confused between Lenovo k3 note and asus zenfone 2 ze550ml. Fr... moreDear Friend, The overall Asus phones are very nice and awesome in performance except battery life. Since the mobile is running intel based chipset, which consumes huge power makes its battery back-up vulnerable. I am using Asus Zenfone 5 with same issue. It is not only me.. Lakhs of people who brought Zenfone this is the common problem. Otherwise it is superb mobile. During 8hours office working time atleast two times we have to charge. So, you may consider other options also like Xiaomi Mi4i (Note: in this model everything is superior quality hardware, only con is not expandable for memory, comes with 16gb inbuilt), While recomending I have considered battery back up and great camera quality. If we see camera quality, any other brands in this price range will stand only after Xioami and Asus, this is sure... But the big problem with Asus is battery.
