I bought this phone on 26 june this year, i.e 2015. I found the phone awesome. Its very smooth thanks to 2 GB Ram. It didn't hanged yet i hope it goes on like this only. Both the Camera is good (no doubt), speaker too.. but i got disappointed when i got to know it doesn't offer free earphones, so i had to buy an extra earphones. Now the biggest demerit is that... It heats up very very soon. I watched a video for about 10 mins and it started to heat up. When i access internet it heats up and the heat is unbearable hot. I can't even touch it. It becomes too hot.. somewhere i am disappointed after i got to know that it heats up.. i would never buy it if i knew it before. Its only the biggest problem for me otherwise the phones is good... so guys check it before buying..

VANDANA , 02 Jul 2015Thnx a tonn for yur reply..Why did yu say to go foir xiomi NOTE..? I mean why is it better? I ... moreWell, specwise. Both phone is similiar. I have played games on vboth xiaomi and zenfone 5. Games runbetter at ZF 5. But in xiaomi its not too bad too. Ill say the fps is below Zf 5. But xiaomi's greatest advantage is its battery. Bigger than ZF 5. So the overall rating will go to xiaomi. But, if you love creative photography and doesnt mind carrying a powebank anywhere. Then Zenfone 5 is a solid, i say again, Solid choice for you! With all that being said. The decision is yours
Anonymous, 02 Jul 2015I'm sick and tired of waiting for Lollipop OTA update. Dont go lolipop upgrade for now. There is battery issue which dont go beyond 75% at most of the time plus fast draining. I also faced problem in call hearing by the person at other end. So I had to get back to Kitkat again. This all done in Asus service centre. Also heard that in some cases the phone was restarting on its own at frequent intervals. Hope the Asus managers note this and resolve the issues at the earliest. Please Please Please.
this is one of the best smartphone by this price........although it has a battery draining problem...but average better than others phone
