Now my zenfone 5 is not sucking battery that much. Stand by time increased enormously. Previously what happened... before update to kitkat i backed up all my apps including google play service to save data after update. then installed these apps. and i don't know why google play service started eating my battery even after updated to battery fix OTA. So i did the factory reset and then i fresh updated google play service online and disabled hangout because me or my friends not using it. battery drain issue currently solved for mr, don't about future.

1) Use Flip cover ( Asus make) as when you select your mobile in flip mode . then during call you need not to open full screen. as you can attend you call without open flip cover. even you come to know about other notification without opening screen. and only you need to ON screen when really you need it.
2) If you select all apps Not being awake / No keeping awake form power management menu. then it will help to mobile goes in deep sleep mode whenever your flip cover will close.
3)Set screen off time as minimum as possible. while asus has programmed the device is such a manner that when you close your flip cover ,after 5 sec screen will off automatically. It will override the set screen sleep time in Display menu. ( as i have observed in my device)
4) Yes, there is a sensor provided to monitor the flip cover opening and closing, but the power consumption of this sensor is very less in comparison of screen power consumption. so it will definitely save you battery power.
5) Since Through flip cover you can also ON/OFF you screen . so Power On/OFF button life will also increased.
