Also doesn't suits me, as for me dual sim is must. Zenfone suits me except it's battery during travelling. if i want to watch some videos or use internet or use gps it restricts me to use for a long period. I have to close games after 10-15 minutes to conserve power, but yes i am carrying a power bank now-a-days. Ofcourse Zenui is very good with inbuilt app lock feature, also i like the calling interface very much. All asus applications are built with material design which i liked too. It's touch response is awesome. All applications i use runs smoothly and opens quickly. Now with kitkat they added zoom in animation to display of flip cover view....so many other advantages. These are reasons for which i am still sticking with zenfone.
After reading all these issues mine seems simple, the speaker just went dead.

1) space needed for high capacity battery - there's not enough space in the phone for it. Max you could get is 10-20% more. Is that enough? Likely not.
2) the difficulty of replacing battery - you literally need to take the whole thing apart and battery is the very last thing that comes out. It is also using a very sensitive connector.
While I've already taken the Zen apart a couple of times, it's not really fun to reassemble, and that's definitely not something Asus would want you to do.
If you are after a longer battery life, and are looking for a pretty similar replacement to LTE version of ZenFone 5, you may wish to take a look at Benq F5. Same specs as Zenfone 5 LTE, larger and replaceable battery, 13 MP camera. Same price.
But no ZenUI... and no App drawer. Other than that, a marvellous phone.

Apart from this, i don't have any issue. But yes battery is most important one. Because due to battery you can't use this phone to it's highest capability. I would urge ASUS to release a standalone high capacity battery for zenfone 5.

But I do not have the apps you have, but then again I have left sensible permissions to the apps... obviously calling apps must be able to access contact list and make phone calls, etc.
But a picture editor should not ask to secretly turn on camera, microphone, get location, make calls and send messages, etc.
I don't really have many apps on.
