It is a great phone .It is better than Samsung S4 mini and Grand 2.Its camera is superb and it is like a professional camera.Only the thing is it has bad battery backup and it gets heated. Apart from this it is a great phone I ever had and everyone can afford it. If liked please buy this phone.
It seems like updating to kitkat will be a big problem. Kitkat doesn't allow user to write on SD card. Is there anything we can do? Is it more advisable not to upgrade to kitkat?

I bought Asus Zenfone 5 ( 16GB) a month ago. It's a pathetic phone,just within one month its display has gone, giving me headaches.Otherwise also its not a good phone, its touch is too sensitive and even after you disconnect the phone gets readilled.
I STRONGLY RECOMMEND NOT TO GO FOR THIS HOPELESS Phone. Taking my phone tomorrow to the service station and will update you my friends

However there will be some apps, like file managers, that simply will not have a way around unless they are installed as part of the system with system permissions.
Let's see how Asus gets around this problem.

Manish, 25 Aug 2014all other reviews are saying that back up of this set is very bad ....please help me what to d... moreAdvice?
Get a powerbank if concerned.
I carted one around with me all the time with the iPhones as I never knew when the battery would go flat, which was very often.
Given the price and size of powerbanks today, I would not think twice about getting it if I traveled somewhere that I wasn't sure battery would last me long enough or not.
Then again, so far it never went flat on me.
all other reviews are saying that back up of this set is very bad ....please help me what to do ? i use to travel a lot and some times i also visit micro interiors of india.any one please guide ......
AnonD-279813, 25 Aug 2014I am not particularly looking forward to it, and you're probably wondering why I say this…
... more@tomazz that was the exact reason I wanted to buy the 16 gb version. But I ended up buying the 8 gb one instead. What u said is true,but the update *doesn't* prevent you from using the SD Card. It simply prevents apps from writing to areas of the SDCard where they haven't been granted explicit permission.
It's still a problem but app developers can somewhat fix it buy updating their apps.
