this phone is awesome.... battery performance is poor bt u cn fix it for 2 or 3 times use full battery till it gets 0 percent then charge it for 7 to 10 hours for 2 or 3 times thn it bcms little bit good....... people who is saying phone is bad go n buy sony or samsung at this range definetly u will again use this zenfone 5
Which one of the following is better in terms of performance,usability etc?? Samsung grand prime 4g,htc desire 526g+ or asus zenfone 5 A501CG??
Doesn't cater to the basic functionality of a phone: automatically restarts, call drop, no network.
Totally fed-up and frustrated with this phone.
Camera average,battery OK,performance great..Asus ZenFone 5 is still great when it comes to performance
Not a good phone....It hangs minimum twice in a day without any fail................

been using this for 1yr+ and my warranty ended on 1Aug2015.and this is my first smartphone that I bought it myself. so this is my opinion about this phone.
8GB Internal storage (why did I even buy this, thats what you get for being impatient :c)
-Smooth, feels great in hand, expensive looking with original ASUS design :D
-I dont really like the earjack port tho since I play games alot in landscape position
-Speaker is way too small compare to the long design on its back cover D: (y u lie)
-Nice tactile feel on the power buttons and volume buttons.
-High durability Gorilla Glass display (phone fell a lot of time out of pocket but still did not break)
-HD display with great dpi value.
-Uses Intel Atom (which people call heavy energy depletion) D:
-Small battery + Heavy energy consuming CPU D:
-System update worsen battery life.
-Camera is nice with flash and all those effects and variable ISOs.
-Great for playing casual games.
-Easy flashing procedure (using cmd and adb) :D
Its a good phone for a tight budget but if can, please don't upgrade to KitKat or Lolipop since battery consuming is crazy (Full charge last for 4hours only for WW v188.8.131.52 Lolipop) (KitKat had bad ram management so a lot of apps tend to crash like games, etc) TnT
Planning on downgrading my phone to Jellybean 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11. because when I was on JB, and play games with mobile data + VPN, the phone temperature did not reach 40'C+ which KitKat and Lolipop did, and the battery last for almost 12hrs.
And somehow I see that ASUS is becoming more like Samsung.....releasing a number of version for a model and did not fix the issue regarding their firmwares for their phones....come on ASUS, I gave up on Samsung because of that and please not you too.... :c
Even know this phone is more than a year old..i still like the ZenFone 5 a lot..have no problem using it...yes battery life is an issue but can be solved if you use power bank..tq.
deepak, 10 Aug 2015I am facing the same problem.I don't think there's any way to solve the problem ...since the ZenFone 5 don't have fast charging features
