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 188.8.131.52_20140516. 6 release keys, 010175_201401130121, any 1 who had this same problem pls inform me what to do. thank you in advance.

I am using ASUS zenfone 5 from one week
My phones battrey drains out very qiuck like in 4 hours

No Games installed till yet still battery drains out.
Already set my phone to Smart Saving (Optimized Mode)
but still issue is there.. can you provide some steps or setting to apply so my battery will last atleast 12 hours..........
Hi Tomazz, is it possible that the battery life/span of Zenfone 5 improves after the release of kitkat? If so, does it improve dramatically or just a bit? Thank you!
can any one the average temperature of the sealed smart phone battery?

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.
hms, 05 Sep 2014hi am planing to purchase zenfone 5, guys am afraid abt the battery its inbuilt what if someti... moreSo basically same problem as with Apple iPhone, Sony XPERIA series, most of HTC phones, LG phones, …
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_184.108.40.206_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

AnonD-292829, 05 Sep 2014Wow!! You just bought a headset only for an experiment alone?THankx again..
Regarding the exp... moreI am sorry, I did not use any such apps, but it is plausible that these apps could get stopped when they try to open Bluetooth…
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.
