Booked 10 July Recd 12 July
1. Solid built, super looks, professional, sleek, stylish, light weight
2. Silk touch, speedy net & software, no lags
3. Zen UI is OK, samsung has better
4. Sound quality good
5. Has FM, 2GB RAM, 5GB usable space
6. LED notification light
7. Camera is good enough for taking pictures in indoor low lights & outdoors, not great color reproduction
8. Magnificient viewing HD videos
1. No backlight for phone on screen panel buttons, very inconvenient
2. HD video recording zooms image almost 4x, also not very clear, lot of noise & blur. Very poor for video recording
3. Integrated battery
Worth Rs.10000 though. If camera & backlight are taken care would be worth Rs.15000 plus.

An issue just cropped up with the new ZenUI update. Well, a few, so I'd recommend you not to update to last one that was released a couple of days ago. I'd also ask if anyone else has the same issue. So...
The second SIM card doesn't automatically get on the network. It is there, in Dual SIM settings it's "Active" yet, there's x in front of the card's signal meter top of the screen. You need to deactivate and reactivate it in Dual SIM Settings, and it picks up network and get online. This did not happen before the update.
The smooth motion in switching between screens is gone. It used to be very smooth, now it's very choppy.
Seems battery life is shorter than before, but this is not scientific, just a feeling that it reaches that 30% sooner than it did before update.
The lock page seems to have issues with What's Next - it stops many times, but it never happened to me on lock page before. Reboot of phone fixed the issue.
So - if you have not yet updated it, stick to older version, as this new one seems to be buggy.
pratikhirekhan, 10 Jul 2014does asus zenfone 5 has led notification light?Yes, Asus ZF5 does have a notification light, it's right next to front camera. It's on during charging, and can be set to show notifications, however in my case that was turned off by default.
Tanveer, 11 Jul 2014Does it has wifi hotspot?Yes, it does have Wifi hotspot / cellular connection tethering.
sgs, 11 Jul 2014there is no radio in all 3 sets,
can anyone pls reply why?At least the version that I have, has FM radio.
However the headset or headphones must be plugged in for it to work, as they also act as an antenna.
Jud, 13 Jul 2014thanks.. but i heard that zenphone is having some problem with the battery life.. is that true?
I would not call it a battery life problem. If you use the screen or camera a lot, battery will drain faster. Other than that, I've found it last longer than Note 2 in the same usage pattern, and Note 2 was praised for long battery life.
Obviously there could be some application that sucks the battery dry from a bad coding, but that is not fault of the phone.
