KokGituh, 28 Sep 2014Whaaat??!!.....a toy??!!......i guess i know this is going to....or maybe next time youll say.... moreAll phones are toys. Well, OK, some are being used for business tools, but other than that, they are toys for big kids.
Small kids play with Barbies and model cars, well, big kids play with smartphones.
I could call myself a toy collector. For anything running on batteries (ok, some female khm…. accessories… excluded).
KokGituh, 28 Sep 2014Are you feel threaten...so you stalking me??....hahaa....
Not stalking la…
I just went to google your excellent reviews of other phones, and the first thing that came up on Google was your Facebook account.
That immediately built my respect for you as someone who spent time to google up his own reviews, praise them for excellency, and used them as basis to decide that this phone is crap.
Not many people are so full of themselves. Respect, kid.
I am surprised to hear about problems in asus zenfone 5.Mine is working very nice since i bought i.e.July 29.It never lags,plenty internal memory space.Nice touch and very nice camera.Never heats on internet use and guys i have used sony & samsung in past @3 inch phone and upon continous use of 3G there battery also go down.
I think lots of people complaining here havent used smartphone before or dont know how to use it.Hats off Tomazz for such a nice and detailed explanation of mobile.
One thing is a big surprise for me,in my asus zenfone 5 whatsapp has moved to sd card and it is working fine.How come possible as my phone is not rooted.
hi guyz, I bought zenfone5 2 month ago and I didn't found any weakness such as described below... price and perform this fone is deserved, nothings wrong...
Tomazz, 27 Sep 2014I'm glad you are enjoying your Xiaomi phone.
A friend of mine, Hugo from Xiaomi, once said ... moreI do have zenfone (5 & 6), redmi 1s, redmi note, iphone5, s4, note 3, huawei honor 3C, xperia z, nokia xl, and more...are ya want me to list all my phone that i have..
Im comparing redmi note with zen 5...it becoz it both have the same price range in my country....coz most common people decide to buy a phone its by price/spec....like asus when its first appeareance and booming (but disappointed in the end)....:o....
So stop joking....!!!....LoL

Anonymous, 27 Sep 2014Which is better ?
this one (16 GB)
or moto g (16 GB)If new Moto G, they are more or less identical.
Biggest difference between them is the OS. Zen comes with ZenUI based on JellyBean (ok, next week on KitKat), while Motorola comes with stock KitKat with default Google launcher.
Some people like clean stock OS, because it's uncluttered with added functions, and receives updates immediately, others hate it because it's far less user friendly.
I don't think the choice can be on hardware. It's mostly a choice of which software you like. And there is no good or bad, just your preference.

Take off the back plate.
Remove the screws (one has warranty sticker), and remove the plastic shell.
There are only a handful more screws inside and the rest is all modules plugged into each other. I consider it a Lego.
This was the point of Zen - making it all in standard parts, that can be produced en masse, and make it very simple to put together - that's what also makes it larger than other phones.
I did take it apart, didn't really like to put it back together (I'm one of those who always end up with a few spare parts), but - it is considerably easier to fix than any other mobile I've pulled apart before.
Tomazz, 27 Sep 2014As I've never listened to radio on it I had to test this. Here are the findings: - when ... moreThanks Tomazz, actually when i am locking the zenfone when fm radio playing in foreground after that the volume down is not working properly. Actually i mailed asus & they are very quickly responded to reset my zenfone. If it's not working then to come to their service center. But i am reluctant to make it serviced. Please clarify one thing i have heard that this mobiles are so complexly coupled that if we service them there is a high chance that some other problems may arise. Please suggest what can be done. Thank u & other friends again .
a t, 27 Sep 2014weather i should buy asus 5 or moto g2....which one is better tell me pls.....in terms of came... moreOld G2 has crappier screen (SD vs HD resolution), and much lower specs on hardware, such as camera, working memory, CPU - but considerably longer battery life.
The new G2 is more or less identical to Zenfone 5 - both in terms of size, screen, camera, performance - and battery life.
Zenfone has advantage in better camera modes and a much neater user interface.
Old G2 has advantage in newer OS and longer battery life.
New G2 has advantage in newer OS.
"Advantage" of this OS is only for those who like stock Android. If that was so great, there would not be that many other launchers out there.
goodking, 27 Sep 2014'Line' cannot work properly on asus5. It cannot send any video or audio call to others, hope ... moreI use Line all the time but went to recheck anyway. Using 4.6.1 version of Line on full 1.18.40 firmware (meaning it's not OTA updated but full firmware loaded manually).
Anyway - I can send and receive videos, photos, and other files. Video and voice only calls work. To computer and to another mobile phone.
I tried Take photo and Take video, and both work without issues. Videos were 30 seconds in length.
So this is not an issue with Line or phone. But it is possible that you have some update in between OTA updates missing, or the apps not updated. All my apps are updated to last version.
Now an interesting thing that I've just found out, and I don't know whether anyone else has the same issue…
I was sending things between ZF5 and Find7. And…
ZenFone 5, in CNN app, does not load video, just states that it's not available, while the same version of app loads the video on Oppo.
However - in WhatsApp, when trying to send a video clip on Oppo, camera opens, but when selecting record, it crashes. No such issue on Zenfone.
Just checking this on Samsung and Sony now… Both Note 3 and Z2 can display video in CNN app. As for WhatsApp… Z2 has the same problem. And Samsung is annoying me with the contacts and refuses to start, so I'll test it some other time.
Interesting stuff… Anyone else using CNN app?
