This is all that is claimed:
Gorilla Glass 3
Tougher than ever
ZenFone 5’s display applies Corning® Native Damage Resistance™ technology to enhance surface densification and decrease chances of lateral cracking.
Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 improves native scratch resistance up to 4x, compared to standard Al-Si Glass and 10x compared to Na-Si Glass.
Although I think it's lame and not very scientific, here's a drop and scratch test:
I just buy Asus yesterday and make 8 hours charge.My phone battery really nice and last longer.I use wifi non stop for 5 hour and my battery just down to 50 %.So nice battery.

The online manual states the following. Not sure how significantly it affects if not done.
"Your Zenfone comes partially charged but you must charge it fully before using it for the first time"

AnonD-299767, 29 Aug 2014Hi @tomazz,can u tell me about the build quality of the phone..... & thickness of the disp... moreThe phone is built well, but I do not want to compare it with any high-end phones.
It's a budget phone, so there are some compromises.
It is using standard Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which you would find on many other brands of phones.
The phone is not very thin, but it fits nicely in the hand, especially in Nillkin protective case, and the side curve makes it look thinner than it really is.
I personally consider it looking more premium than most of Samsung phones. The back ceramic-like plastic does give HTC One-X kind of a feel, and although it's not unibody, it does not look any worse put together than HTC.
There are a few things you need to know - since cover is removable, the buttons are on the cover, and they must match exactly over contacts on the body, which when assembled wrong, they don't. So you must put the buttons side on first.
The camera is on the body and the back plate has a hole, so even a fraction of mm wrong placement demonstrates badly. This was a bad design decision.
USB cable that comes with some phones is not of very high quality, and some people have problems plugging them in the phone. Since other cables work fine, it seems cable, not phone problem.
That's all I can tell you...
