I bought the Asus Zenphone on September 2 2014. I activated it on the 6th (I was away when it arrived) I loved the handling, the camera everything about the phone - until the 17th September when it stopped recognising a SIM in slot 2. The next issue happened a day or two later when the battery got exceptionally hot just sitting on idle, after that the battery drained within 2 or 3 hours of charge. A month later it stopped recognising SIM in slot 1. What I have now is a useless brick. I'm so disappointed as I loved the feel of this phone and the interface - it was so simple to use and good to look at.
Thanks amit, but the phone i am talking about has 2gb ram n z2580... its 500cg..
@jj, isnt there an auto power cut off in our phones to prevent overcharging?
I have been leaving my phone on charge all night with the phone switched off for the last 10days.

I upgraded my phone to kitkat 4.4 today. The update went smoothly. Faced no problem of missing keyboard or any wifi problem. Although the update did remove the Asus messaging app and made Hangouts the default messaging app. I downloaded the Asus messaging app from Google Playstore so now it's fine. Thanks amitkk.

@amit & jj, Thanks for your replies.
@amit, i did a factory reset of my phone and the hanging problem has reduced. It still occurs when I enable google play services.
Asus was supposed to release a new update of kitkat this month end. Any news regarding that?
I guess i have to accept that in this phone we loose 1%/ 3 mins and adjust my usage according to that.
Btw, the zenfone 5 showed in asus website (500gc) has z2580 processor. Is it a new model or an older one? Is it available in India?
Hi! I want to ask, normally there is a required initial charging of 8 hours in the case of smartphones right? I'm curious if it will affect my phone since I did not charge it for 8 hours on the first time. And right now my battery drains so fast.

I accidentally overcharged my zenfone 5 last night by 1 hour. Is it alright? Does the phone prevent itself from overcharging? Please help me. I'm getting paranoid. :(
All of you I am saying ,the phone is awesome . The phone will give 1 day battery no need to worry on this .if you want more battery you can go for China mobile's ok.don't post about battery.
