Anonymous, 06 Sep 2014Guys i m planning to buy a new phone plz let me know which is best Moto G (2nd Gen) or Asus Ze... moreWell. It's very close between these 2 devices. Zenfone 5 tops moto g2 in processor and RAM. I think moto g2 will be better than zenfone 5 in the camera and battery life. Also moto g2 will receive updates quick than zenfone 5. So it's really up to u. I have zenfone 5 and I love it. It's super fast. It's the best 10k phone out there.
I got zenfone 5 few weeks ago. So between moto g and zenfone 5, it was easy for me to pick zenfone 5.
But moto g2 solves the biggest problem in moto g. Sd card support. So it's very close between moto g2 and zenfone 5.
To be honest, I would like to be in ur position right now :-P
does zenfone’s intel atom processor support all playstore / non-market app like mediatek & snapdragon without any issues ????????
Guys i m planning to buy a new phone plz let me know which is best Moto G (2nd Gen) or Asus Zenfone 5 ??
AnonD-298283, 05 Sep 2014can any one the average temperature of the sealed smart phone battery? please Depending on ambient temperature usually between 28 and 35C. Obviously if your ambient temperature is higher, the battery temperature would be higher as well.
Al, 05 Sep 2014Hi Tomazz, is it possible that the battery life/span of Zenfone 5 improves after the release o... moreHard to say. The only phones that I've updated from JB to KK were ARM based, and the battery life improvement was marginal, but speed improvement and memory handling improvement was huge.
However JB had 0 optimisations for the Atom CPU, so it *SHOULD* see more dramatic improvements to battery life, since throttling of the CPU is now done by the ZenUI, and it should be far more controlled once it's done by the OS itself.
Therefore I cannot say more than that battery should improve, but by exactly how much is not possible to determine until KK is actually out for this model.

I am using ASUS zenfone 5 from one week
My phones battrey drain... moreSet screen to automatic brightness, update to 1.18 firmware, close apps that you're not using.
I don't know how good the cellular signal is where you are, or how strong your wifi signal is, but usually lower channels of Wifi have stronger signal.
On cellular it's the other way around. The low frequencies need more power, so 2100 MHz 3G will make your battery last longer than 900 MHz 3G, on same signal level.
I would recommend that you open the settings, check battery graph and see what are the biggest power users, then address those.
Just bought the Zenfone 5 8gb, i was so exited to have the phone, what i like about this phone is the camera picture was amaizing, i havnt try much about the phone function before installing any software from the play store, i get this message popup on the screen says the "broser needs your location" all u need to do is to select the optioin Deny or Allow, after selcting either one of them u need to tick the box to confirm do not show this again. after doing that i installed some apps like Whatsapp, and this time the popup came out again says "whatsapp tries to read contact, Deny or Allow> and this popup keeps on coming out on the screen even u not using the program and while using other program it still poping out several time untill u have to press the Allow button many times then it gone, after few minutes it came out again the same problem and came out, i have no idea what happen and also some of the apps are very lagging. i had latest Android version 4.3, build number ASUS_T00J-WW_USER 184.108.40.206_20140516. 6 release keys, 010175_201401130121, any 1 who had this same problem pls inform me what to do. thank you in advance.

you will need to charge this moble 2 times a day, if you can afford that then go for this phone. Currently best in market.
AnonD-302708, 05 Sep 2014Hey.. I'm about to buy a new phone for me.. The problem is my expenses is limited.. Is zenfone... moreIf you are looking for a phone on budget, that has an excellent user interface, very good build quality, screen and camera, great performance, and a little below par battery life, so you don't mind getting a small power bank in case it runs out of juice in the evening if you use it a lot, this is an excellent choice.
If you have a little more to spend, you may consider Benq F5 (not on GSM Arena yet to my knowledge) which has 20% larger battery and similar specs.
Other alternatives would be Motorola and Lenovo, who do have offerings with lower specs in around the same price range.
Other than that, it will be hard for you to find a decent phone in this price range.
Do note if you're Indian, that most new phones do NOT support 3G video calls from operators, but they do support Skype, Viber, Line, etc. video calls over 3G or Wifi on data pack.
Also that the battery life will depend on signal in your area, on apps you have open, on firmware you have loaded, and usage pattern.
I do not use it myself, but do recommend a powerbank of 5500-8000 mAh which can recharge the phone 2-3x from 0 to 100% with 2,000 mA output in case you are worried about battery.

And like on these you would normally press the power button and hold it for 5-10 seconds until phone powers off or reboots.
I am yet to see Zenfone hang. I am not saying it can't happen, obviously it can. Just in my case it did not (yet)… knock wood :P
My Zenfone is ASUS_T00F_WW_user_220.127.116.11_20140516_170636 .. i hv download the 1.17 firmware & extract the file using my phone. When i connect to pc, i don't know how to copy the file because i found in my folder the file still need to unzip. Other than that, my model is 500CG, can i download the latest firmware 1.18 for 501CG to my phone... I totally blank bout this cause i hv tried many time to update my hp. Really need ur advice. Tq
You can just press the power button up to 8 seconds. and it will reboot
