Just if you've already updated to Lollipop, there's no way to root your device. Downgrade your Zenfone 5 to KitKat. Then root it.. Install a custom recovery like TWRP on it, then flash CyanogenMod 13.1 from XDA. You'll have the best battery life in Zenfone history. Now, my battery longs more than 20h with 3G. No any problems. CyanogenMod's camera has faster performance than ASUS PixelMaster Camera + AOSP experience.
its really good phone its camera is to good it has no hnging prblm but only one is not good its battry back up

Does anyone has the problem with Z5 that the phone got hot when using it?
I suggest you guys stick to the latest KitKat than Lollipop w/c they haven't fixed bugs like Network Drops, No Voice when calling, Battery Drain, etc. since they have already abandoned it. They didnt even bother installing 5.1.1 instead as final Lollipop version.
Overall don't bother buying Asus phones as their customer support and software assurance fails bigtime. Just look at how over priced their latest phones with crap socs.
Been using Z5 for almost 3 years until it recently got bricked for some reason
The performance is considerably good and stayed snappy and responsive for a quite long time
The camera is decent, but the built-in camera software is awesome
My main complaint is the battery life which only gives me 3 hours of extensive use, and goddamn that speaker is barely audible even in max volume! Goodluck trying to play a song while hanging out with a friend
my wife bought one z5 a couple of month ago..but now the battery started to drained off..so we change it with a new battery,but the same problem occurs..and the heat of charging as well
i have bought asus zenfone 5 but it is like waste of money totally .Its camera is like chinese low quality phone and all the features are unsatisfactory.
I have been used the asus zenfone 5 for 2 years. I have only face drain battery issues only. Otherwise phone is very good
bella, 22 Oct 2016can i use a MicroSDXC Class 10 memory card with this phone ?Yes, sure. The most compatible is 10.
Been using this phone for last 1 1/2 years and everything looks great. Unfortunately, due to frequent use of my emails, whatsapp and waze for my daily work requirements, i'm thinking of changing to more powerful battery capacity. But, this phone is the most stable with smooth operations even after upgraded to KitKat. Highly recommended! try it and you will know the difference!
