Amal, 18 Sep 2014I am using Zenfone 5 16 gb version for more than a month by now. As is already mentioned by mo... moreHey I had the same problem- not charging through USB and also the Charger. Thought the phone is faulty and applied for a refund. Switched off the phone and kept it for 24 hrs packed in the box for returning. Before sending I just checked once more by switching on the phone and connecting the Charger- and it started charging again !! No problem for past few days since that. I guess heating problem perhaps- switching off for several hrs restored it.
That is the price of having high capacity processor on a small gadget. The battery suffers for the large amount of power it consume. The heating is also caused by the high capacity processor just as it does with laptops.
I am using Zenfone 5 16 gb version for more than a month by now. As is already mentioned by most of the users my phone is also experiencing the quick battery drain issue. But as of now a more serious issue had came. Its not charging!!!. I tried factory reset but still the same issue. Till now I wasn't able to get an ASUS service centre.

I Would like to buy Asus Zenfone 5 A501CG (8GB), Shall i buy it and suggestions and Problems in Mobile.
Main Usage for 3G and call
I am using this Ausus Zeonfone 5 since last one week and the perfomance is good except the battery draining problem. I have to recharge the battery 2 times daily due to continuous use of 3G. Camara quality is good in outdoors, but indoors, it is average. Overall performance of this phone is good at the price it is being offered in Flipkart.
