Total waste of money Pls DO NOT BUY ANY ASUS SMARTPHONE.....I bought this phone last year June'2015....he worked good for 6 months and then the contact screen started hanging,the phone also started to hang. I hardly make 1 or 2 calls a day which last only for 5 mins but the phone battery drains so fast. the phone charging adapter gets heated. I went to Asus service center they changed the battery but still the battery drains the same way and they did not change the charging adapter bcoz it was more than 6 months....So friends don't waste your hard earned money in buying Asus.

Anonymous, 26 Apr 2016Is there an official lollipop update for zenfone 5 A501CG? Yes, released long long ago, but if I remember correctly, it has never been delivered OTA. I had to check for updates, go to Zen Talk from that screen, download the update, put it in /, and turn the phone off - on. Subsequent L updates, possibly except one, were OTA as usual. Works very good for an Android.
I have been using this mobile for past one and half year. The battery is draining very quickly while playing games and browsing as well. And iam facing heat problem too.
I've be using this phone almost 2 yrs plus..now cannot install wechat & fb . Is this phone cannot support that device..
I'ved been using this phone for 2 years already. Until now no lags even if memory storage were almost full. So loved this phone, camera and all its features were unique and up to date. Asus costumer service is fast on your concerns. If i will buy a new phone.... ASUS is my 1st choice. High Specs but Low in priced.

I was facing SIM card problem..How to fix it? I just change SIM tray yesterday now I can see only one SIM on my display..that show another SIM not installed..anyone have solutions guys??
Great phone :)
Pretty good for gaming (although lags a bit for really high-graphic games)
The only thing that sucks though is battery. This is the major drawback.
But what the heck, a fairly easy workaround is to just have a powerbank.
So its not much of a drawback really.
For a relatively cheap price, its still worth it! :D
Had mine for only a year til it got stolen, sadly.
I guess the phone is soo good its worth stealing eh?
Used it almost 2 year, It still works very well~
everything is going fineeee, love it
it seldom lag unless I open game required higher ram
This phone is very cheap and worthfulll, just buy a better phone if you want good camera good speaker and good battery guys. Just pay more for it~~~
