I just bought this phone and it was really good. It runs smoothly and it can also run HD games/videos w/o lag.
After upgrading my asus zenfone 5 from android jellybean 4.3 to android kitkat 4.4.2 , the battery drains very fast. Hoping Asus will fix this issue very soon.
I bought my Zenfone 5 A501CG last Sept, 9, 2014. I received a software update (KITKAT) from ASUS, a month after, since I trusted ASUS on their upadate, so I install it and upadte my fone, after updating the fone shuts down and cannot open, it keeps on re-starting. Can you help me on this?

Just bought my Zenfone 5 2 weeks ago. At first I experienced problems like I experience lag during multitasking (im a heavy user), batt gets drained very fast especially when using Mobile Data/Wifi and surfing/chatting using chat apps. Apps also crashes, the camera also had some delays. The UI was sometimes crashes too (i still have it now) But after of updating to kitkat and some system updates it was all fixed. Now I don't have any problems so far. I am pretty happy for the update. Now I am afraid of updating it if ever a new update comes. My suggestion to all who's thinking about buying this phone, you should buy it. Its definitely worth the price.

Elvin, 19 Nov 2014Hi, I just want to know if there are issues after you upgrade it to KK mode? I'm am not techy ... moreHi,
KIT-KAT update was smooth, videos show that it will have issues. I took the risk trusting ASUS. Only thing happened was that Google Keyboard which I was using as default did not work after the update, which was not a big deal.
Go to tools set ASUS Keyboard as default input and you will be good to go... All The best... :)
AnonD-333227, 20 Nov 2014My kitkat zenphone 5 is discharging from 100% to 0% in 9 hours with ultra saving on, and sync ... moreHi Can you try these things and see if it works for you.
1) Go to screen Brightness setting, pull it down to lower then Mid level. Set it to Auto and pull it again to Lower to Mid Level.
2) Turn the GPS off, in case you don't use it often.
This helps in me run Zenfone on One full charge for 12-18 hours depending on the usage.
sree, 19 Nov 2014Ur review was helpfull... Is service centres available everywhere???Hi, First thing I did was to call service center to ask about its location in My City, you can get service center details on ASUS website based on your location. ASUS has an inbuilt APP called MyASUS, which will track your service status as well and they also have a hotline number. Fingers crossed that I will not need to use it but nice feature to have for trust.
