Just drop my Z5 in a rubble ground and i'm very surprise that it just receive very minor scratch in the case,screen is still so smooth, why not because its cornilla glass, waiting for the kitkat update, and if this update improve the battery life then i will say that Z5 is one of the best phone to have, all phone has an heating problem and i found thats not an issue, but if kitkat can fix the problem then better, ASUS has made a Good Android Phone, not just excellent but one of the best. Good JOb!!!
roshan4374, 29 Sep 2014Well for battery issue ... I did something and which helped a lot .. I did the fota update i... morei have noticed that also, when you full charge the phone, it discharges quickly than charging it by only 70% - 90%. normally, when i browse through, it consumes 1%/min, but on the other hand, i had browsed for 10-15 mins, and it didn't consume any percent. i don't have an idea why. a good thing but i can't tell if not fully charging is safe or not.
AminArmani, 29 Sep 2014In the email, they said KitKat will fix major games problems and compatibilities like GTA SAN... moreWow! i love this game i played this game in my canvas 2 with low graphics as it has just 512 mb ram.
but unable to play in zenfone 5 if its run then i will able to play in high graphics.
That why i am waiting for kitkat update.
I think this game can run after kitkat update.
Well for battery issue ...
I did something and which helped a lot ..
I did the fota update if m correct what's that's called 78 MB file ..so I missed all the earlier updates due to which battery backup was very low..
I noticed that after updating the zenui charging was taking too much time and was discharging very fast ...
After that I did a factory reset but didn't update app Asus zen ui ..
And I put my phone brightness to 0 and switched on the read mode also and ultra saving mode ..
now the phones run for the whole day ...
so kindly check this way once May be it helps you all in battery issue ..
And I would like to tell that charge your phone to 100 percent and then drain it till 15 percent and again charge it but don't do 100 percent charge always make it 80 percent or 90 percent then battery drains at very low speed If i listen songs for 1 hour it drains only 3 or 4 percent battery

Trying to find out if that is from CPU or something else.
Where is the position of the heat? Just under the flash? Higher? Somewhere else?
Can you describe after you got it, what have you loaded (not from apps, but from system updates) till now and whether this was the issue from day one or happened later?
