If you are planning to buy this phone so i suggest you to wait to till March 2015 Asus releases it's 2nd generation Zenfone"s and one of that is Asus Zenfone 2 which has first time 4gb ram in a smartphone and main thing is 3000mah battery with 13 mp rear camera and 5 mp front camera 5.5 Inch full HD screen with about 406 ppi screen density on the other hand Zenfone 5 is also good but battery is main issue in it
If you want to improve your battery life, download Greenify App and install it. More option for Rooted phone, but still it is good to hibernate the apps in background, so less battery consumption and more saving.
So, use this app everyone, as the battery power is less installed by Asus (Fixed one...Sad), and not able to change battery with more power, so save battery from apps like Greenify, DBS, Etc and get more battery backup time...
My phone is getting restarted in between calls and touch is not working untill its switched off & on. Is it a complaint of the hand set
In ASUS zenphone5 , back button is not working sometimes.what is the remedy for this?
It is and excellent budget phone I am using it for last 5 months. Superb for listening stored songs, battery is very good for this purpose. Other wise only limiting factor is battery other wise value for money. Internet speed is superb.

i like the design so much and the price is cheaper compare with others but is there any suggestions to improve the performance of the battery or not?? thanks
I’m using ZF5 JB version, I have received KK update, shall i install? If I install it will utilize more internal space? Battery conception will utilize more?
a lot of black line shaking on the camera screen and result it taking photo with black or yellow tint. Did your all have this problem? (now my app version is 126.96.36.199217-6)
2gb ram sucks all battery ,so you need to carry a power bank with this phone .gaming is best in this phone ,phone is heating well also ,anything this is good android phone compared to other android phones, if you are a gamer choose this phone

Guys I bought this phone for my wife on her birthday but she is not happy with it. Other issues are ok but her real problem is that call disconnect midway for both sims, bsnl and tatadocomo. Its not time specific or sim specific or even battery level specific.
And 2nd problem is that when battery is really low
Asus zenfone 5 is the best phone in this range,not only this range but it can also give tough competion to device worth 20k to 30k. Its ZenUI is incredible, asus apps they r good, zenfone design feels premium and looks brilliant, just issue with this device is battery life actually its not an issue its just that asus fitted less capacity batt. It needs more batt to survive whole day with that flagship like perfomance,intel and incredible ui.
Overall its a very good device if ur willing to buy this go ahead buy this beast, u will not get similar specs and design device in this range. Thank you and sorry for long review.
Did u all phone camera got yellow tint ? I trouble with this problem ....
