I've had one since October 2014. The battery life is not good, some apps just devour the battery - need to clear all apps to make it to the end of the day. The worst thing for me is the SIM card reading - it constantly forgets or disables the sim card. Of course you don't know this, so you are waiting for an important call and it doesn't arrive. For me this makes it a small tablet - NOT a phone!. My daughter has the same phone, with the same problems!
Most issues with devices has nothing to do with the device itself. It's almost always a user issue. Aside from the Lollipop update, I've never had an issue with my phone. Notice that the only people posting a comment are those who have complaints? How many Zenfone 5 users are there worldwide? How come only a handful are experiencing issues? We can therefore conclude that these people are just morons who do not know how to handle gasgets with care.
I still haven't received the lollipop update OTA!! Still waiting soo long

please dont purchase zenfone from asus ...if you purchase china product it may reliable than zenfone
Battery of the phone sucks big time. I charge my phone fully and even if its has 90% battery it conks off. I have to carry charger all the time with me due to this issue. can anyone guide me in this regards, what to do?
Also, its screen broke claiming that its gorilla glass but with small jerk it broke off. I couldn't believe that. I got it repaired and now the screen is not fixed properly and its detaching from the device.
#Asus zenfone is a very good phone and value for money. However, phone has a known fault that after few months of use, green/yellow patches appears on both the top sides of the screen. Specially in India, customer service is very poor. Despite of known error, it has already taken 10 days and I have not received my phone yet after repair. For this fault, I aware you to think again if you looking to buy this phone. #zenfone5
Mr. Pogi, 01 Aug 2015The upgrade in Lollipop is not effective in Philippines. Until now no upgrade yet.I think not only in the Philippines. All countries with Zenfone availability still didn't receive FOTA. Manual update only. ASUS makes me sad :(
my asus z5 battery drain fast even in standby mode.. mygod battery sucks!!!
The phones overal performance is good bt Some probems are there in this phone.. that is.. no Video calling system,Gets heated up early if we play heavy games,The butons at the side are not good they break, And After a use of 7-8 months u will feel like not to use this device anymore .It will be annoying..Battery backup is Not good at all Camera is slow..it can't capture fast moving objects .i wil rate it 1.4 out of 10..
