jacko, 13 Feb 2015Thank..one more thing how way to save battery life?Maybe u root ur zenfone and intall battery doctor..which will minimize the frequency of the cores..!
Or try try no frills cpu control to reduce to 800 mhz from 1600mhz
Kindly suggest me, whether to buy Zenfone 5 or not. I am a moderate mobile user, will the battery sustain the whole day??
Hii, after getting automatic system updates I have lost my speaker volume which was atleast somewhat listenable in silent places, now its almost nil.can anybdy please help. I couldnot hear ringtone anymore now and only vibration mode is active now which makes my calls to be missed.
brij, 16 Feb 2015i just got mine 22.214.171.124 yesterday .. have patience you will get it soon. oops..typo.... its 126.96.36.199 .
Most people are asking the same qtn again and again. here are my battery usage statistics.
1 day 18 h on battery
Cell standby 33% 1 day 18 hours
Phone idle 13% 1 day 16 hours
Screen 10% 2 hours 20 minutes
wifi 6% running 1 day 2 hours
This is the new zenfone z2520 processor, am on 2g and brightness to minimum. Those who are having issues with battery really need to check their signal strength and background app running. use brightness only when required.
It should run for around a day.This will drastically reduce if you play games, use 3g
and have full brightness. Bcoz screen is the major consumer.
all depends on individual usage, for heavy users the intel processors might not be the best in terms of battery.

dont over react in battery life.. Take note the screen of zenfone 5 is 5 inches.. how can you say that the big screen has low consumption of battery?.. think about it.. i saw a lot of phones but there is no different in battery life of zenfone 5...
I just want to know whether Zenfone 5 comes with 1 gb ram. A friend of mine had got a zenfone 5 as an award in office which was ordered from flipkart. its been 2 months and suddenly when i noticed the phone, it lagged a lot , so i checked the ram, and i go to see that the phone is having 1gb ram. But when i checked flipkart in specification it showed 2 gb ram. The phone was brought at 9999 INR and is a 8gb variant. Another friend of mine has brought 8 gb variant at 7999 INR and that phone consists of 2 gb RAM.
Anonymous, 15 Feb 2015The speakers have gone silent within one month of using the phone. The external speakers are ... more battery back up is very bad ...It is very irritating to use......Front cam video call option is not available.....so this phone is not advisable
battery backup is very poor. and loudspeker output is also poor.touchpad is very good.
My phone cannot get any transfer file from computer. Why? How to fix it?
The speakers have gone silent within one month of using the phone. The external speakers are very bad. The Service centre personnel also do not have a clue about the problem and are saying that the motherboard is faulty. Very poor quality phone and service from ASUS. How can a company which with a motherboard repute manufacture such defective motherboards for a phone. There were lot of customers at the service centre with the same problem on the Zenfone.
Anonymous, 13 Feb 2015hi i bought mobile one 10days back it's battery is very poor How iz btrry bckup
If enginiers from asus manage to fix heating problem the battery life will increase rapidly. Also 3g is enormous battery sucker and heater. Hope Lolipop do something in that direction.
1. DO NOT LEAVE BATTERY CHARGING WHEN FULL.
2. YOU MAY UPDATE Asus'MUSIC(SonicMaster)app and PIXELMASTER at GooglePlay- BUT DO NOT-
I SAY AGAIN: DO NOT UPDATE ALL APPS.
--WILL CONTINUOUS BATTERY VIBRATOR
(maybe mine was just coincidental ha?)
Hardware Reset (Power key + Vol.Up) cannot restore it.
Going back to the store tomorrow
(which costs fare, time, & sleeprest :-(
*pardon my spelling ;-)
Oppo R2001-Yoyo's LoudSpeaker & Headset is 50% Louder & has more range (clearer) than ZenFone 5's.
5MP Camera is clearer (Max. Aperture past 2.7) against ZF5 8MP (Max A. is 2.0 rear cam
BUT COLOR CAPTURE ADVANTAGE is to ZF5
Me? I use Oppo's headset in ZF5 music,
use ZF5 camera to take pictures.
I HOPE THIS COULD BE OF HELP to a decision.
(otherwise, this was a waste of our time.)
