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

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

Roja, 05 Sep 2014i couldnt able to charge my zenfone 5 mobile...today oly i bought this mobile...what to do..pl... moredo you have any portable hard disk with microUSB plug? If yes, or if you have another cable, try to use the portable hard disk's cable instead of the one that came with your phone, and try to charge it from powered USB hub or a USB port of a computer.
If that works, it's broken cable and/or charger.
In that case you take it back to shop… or maybe just take it to the shop and ask them to check it.

what is eMMC flash ??eMMC is the flash memory.
Basically the space for applications and your data. This can be "extended" by getting another flash storage card, a micro SD card, by another up to 64 GB.
In computer world, RAM (2 GB in case of this phone) is the memory that phone is working with while programs are running, and eMMC would be like a hard disk, where the stuff is stored and read from/written to.
AnonD-302583, 05 Sep 2014Sir does the update 1.18 still support usb OTG??Yes it does. At least with Sandisk OTG 64 GB stick.

Looking for best Anti Virus for Asus Zenfone 5.
Can you also suggest a flip cover with... moreYou can put a film over the screen, and get a standard flip case with the hole.
Original Asus ones as well as the "fake" ones both replace the back plastic, and cost 40$ for original and from 7$ up for a fake one.
There's also a possibility of getting a cover that goes over the back, and protects sides as well. Avoid the ones with soft silicone at the back as they do not fit the phone very well and feel very insecure.
eBay is full of this stuff. Search for it just to see what's available.
