I suggest you guys stick to the latest KitKat than Lollipop w/c they haven't fixed bugs like Network Drops, No Voice when calling, Battery Drain, etc. since they have already abandoned it. They didnt even bother installing 5.1.1 instead as final Lollipop version.
Overall don't bother buying Asus phones as their customer support and software assurance fails bigtime. Just look at how over priced their latest phones with crap socs.
Been using Z5 for almost 3 years until it recently got bricked for some reason
The performance is considerably good and stayed snappy and responsive for a quite long time
The camera is decent, but the built-in camera software is awesome
My main complaint is the battery life which only gives me 3 hours of extensive use, and goddamn that speaker is barely audible even in max volume! Goodluck trying to play a song while hanging out with a friend
my wife bought one z5 a couple of month ago..but now the battery started to drained off..so we change it with a new battery,but the same problem occurs..and the heat of charging as well
i have bought asus zenfone 5 but it is like waste of money totally .Its camera is like chinese low quality phone and all the features are unsatisfactory.
I have been used the asus zenfone 5 for 2 years. I have only face drain battery issues only. Otherwise phone is very good
bella, 22 Oct 2016can i use a MicroSDXC Class 10 memory card with this phone ?Yes, sure. The most compatible is 10.
Been using this phone for last 1 1/2 years and everything looks great. Unfortunately, due to frequent use of my emails, whatsapp and waze for my daily work requirements, i'm thinking of changing to more powerful battery capacity. But, this phone is the most stable with smooth operations even after upgraded to KitKat. Highly recommended! try it and you will know the difference!

Asus is waste mobile ever company,Last year i purchase asus zen phone 5 & now its totally dead , dont purchase any asus product
the battery life very poor and can we change the battery if possible
if you want to have a cellphone that is affordable and great for starters, Zenfone 5 i what i recommend to you. but if you want, a nice mobile phone, and you don't wan't to waste your money, then don't buy this phone, it really s*cks! Speaker has low volume, Battery life is draining fast, Camera makes every pictures fake and cartoonized, Wifi signal problem, USB port problem, low quality processor, Always Lags. This phone is for beginners, those who doesn't always use their phone. REMINDER: DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE, I JUST BOUGHT ZENFONE5 LAST MONTH AND IT IS NOW LAGGING, THIS PHONE CAN'T HANDLE HIGH QUALITY RESOLUTIONS.
The best value for the money, period. I used it for two years and while it may not be compatible with many carriers here in the US, this phone is indeed powerful, I "almost" never had any lag with it, it's solid and can take the punishment of falls and scratches, it does not overheat very often which seems to be a problem with many other phones these days but it doesn't seem to be the case with this phone; Video and audio quality are very good, the back cover is replaceable, so when I got bored of my black phone I switched to Gold and it looked like new again. All in all, this is indeed a great phone, it is perhaps underrated as I didn't see how different it is from the other brands that offered the same specs but for triple the price! The only downfall for this phone is it's relatively poor non-removable battery, it would have been perfect if it was of a larger capacity or at least removable, it does charge fast enough though but it won't last long. Right now I still use this phone (Almost 3 years now!), however, I'll be upgrading soon so I plan to keep this baby as a backup!
