I bought this phone for my wife and used it for myself for a week.For a given price this is excellent fone and now finally budget buyer can say goodbye to carbon,mmax etc.
Touch is very close to iphone though as not as good as iphone.Wifi reception is good.Screen is also good matching fones with much higher price.Regareding battery life my wife wont be playing games so it will last more than a day.Anyway I have bought a powerbank for her.There are so many positives which we all know but couples of cons are also there.
Ring/speaker volume is very disappointingly low and I would give 3/10 here.It will be difficult to hear calls if fone will be lying in other room.
Also I have not been able to set up 3G for Tatadocomo (in sim 1) and 2nd sim is cellone by bsnl which is 2G.
Can somebody help here plz.
It is having heat problem. While watching a video for 10 minutes, It became a iron box. Same for Camera also. But it Looking Good. And battery backup is also not good.
guys can any one please tell me what's is model number shown in setting>>About>>Model for zenfone 5 you have received from flipkart ????
guys please don't buy this mobile, camera is just pathetic, even with 100% brightness level, phone looks very dull, battery will be drained just in 2 hours of use.... I m very upset as flipkart refused to replace the mobile. moto g 2 is best option to go.

I'm planning on having Samsung note instead... battery is very important in a device and apple iphone makers understood that part. I don't mind paying for a phone if its has eye candy specs and a known brand.

and another one, i have a problem regarding to pc link, my pc can't connect to my phone while my phone still waiting for a usb connection.
hi tomazz, how did you manage to last you're battery life up to 3 days. should i have to update my phone one by one so that i will not miss any new features or debugging or battery improvement? sorry for a dumb question, this is my first use of a smartphone.

akash, 21 Sep 2014Is zenfone5(8gb) has 2gb ram??I am zenfone 5 user.. yes the first model zf5 have many problem.. but 4 second generation asus zenfone5 new UI its good. No lag, no hang, but u must know pure original zenfone 5... spec for my zf5 is 2gb rem, 16gb internal, intel quadcore 1.6ghz.. camera 8Mp.. nice to use...
Don't buy this phone if u would like to access & spend many time in 3g net in a little bit poor network area then u r zp5 does not allow to access 3g net
& there is no user option to choose wdcdm/gsm/automatic.
Auto switching mode of network is very very poor.
Quality of camera is avarage.
Asus zp 5 doesn't fulfill the expectation
as we think.lots of lagging.believe it it's my own experience by using A501CG after using 72 he's. Plz.go 4 any another brand ....
