I just purchased this zenfone 5 last dec 13 and there's nothing I can say negative except 1. the cropping on photos because the display is too large and there's no other crop options. 2. The music player because if I am downloading songs those will still need to be copy from the file manager then paste on the music folder and 3. BATTERY life is not good but technically majority of the smartphones nowadays has the same issues on Battery Life because of the apps that are installed that tend to be easily drained but POWERBANK is a back-up in case this happens. Overall, I really appreciate the performance, the price, and the style. Practicality wise Zenfone 5 is a superb phone for me :-) #justsharing
does ur latest kitkat update still gives the issue of Keyboard being not visible?
Are there any other bugs which this latest Kitkat update has?
I am yet to upgrade my Jellybean to that. Hence requesting you to assist me with the information.
Hi friend's I'm using Asus zen 5 but i had a issue with my soft key I need to know whether soft keys in this model gets light or not.. please help me out.
One more thing.. If you are a heavy gamer then battery will not last for you. This is a phone for people who wants to do things quickly without any hassle. Runs so smoothly. you can install many apps due to 2gb of RAM. My advice is not to prefer external SD card for app installation, bcoz it may drain battery sooner.

Akki, 15 Dec 2014The Battery is draining out very quickly. I just purchased the phone. Can someone tell is ther... moreIf you go through this thread you'll see sooooooooo many suggestions on how to extend battery life.
But do note that if you're a heavy gamer, or do other things that heavily utilise GPU, CPU or display, that you are unlikely to make much gain in battery longevity.
With reasonable use you should be able to get 1 day battery life out of it, and 2 days with light use.
