Battery is on the lower side for a 5" screen. But for a person who doesn't play games that often, it's sufficient enough for me. Also, it's really awesome for the price.

can you post your present battery usage chart?
I read a few opinions here and I plan on buying one. And when I make the purchase, can you tell the important things I should do first? like update the OS, completely drain the battery and charge it for 8-12 hrs, then set the powers settings etc... this would be my first time to own an android phone so I really have no idea..
thanks in advance for the info
It doesn't show the real battery percentage. When it comes around 50%, my phone turns off. And then when I charge it, it shows 1% battery charge. How can I fix this?
I purchased Asus Zenfone 5, 2 weeks back... I had updated to its latest version of 126.96.36.199 but still the battery backup is a big issue... And what you are saying about an icon in the notification bar of optimized mode, I can see none, though it is on optimized mode ... Please help me... My phone is almost 10 hours on flight mode but still the battery drains from 100 to almost 40... Even right now on 2G my battery drained from 100 to 50 in five hours...

can you explain what happens to the battery if we do this "Discharge completely, then charge 8-12 hours for 3x cycles." ? Why does it have to be 8 hours to 12 hours? Why should we do it? thanks

I just recently bought ASUS Zenfone 5 - 8GB variant.
I have observed that the percentage of my battery drains almost every 5-6 mins when my phone is active, normally when the screen is awake and I am using any app or checking settings. I also make sure that no apps are running in background. The phone is on default - optimized power saving mode.
Also I tried testing camera/video capture for about 5 mins and it seems to get warm a little bit.
I just recently updated to latest version of firmware 1.17.40
Is the battery Ok or should I replace the product ?

can you please help me ? i ma not getting power saving notification on screen while it is ON and selected in ultra saving mode.
Genuine Review, 23 Aug 2014DAY 5th
I got new issue with mobile -- Suddenly call disconnected within less than 3 minute... moreObviously if your cellular network has a low signal, the call may drop. That goes for all phones.
The 1.15 firmware had issues with dropping calls when the signal dropped below 20% but from what I am aware, the 1.16 and 1.17 firmwares resolved that.
Of course - when you have 0 signal, call can't continue.
Therefore upgrade of the firmware may help, as may changing the operator with one that has better signal in your area.
I don't think you've lost 13k on this. Heard of classified ads? List it.

Try using another player… MX Player, WinAmp,…
You could also get some other app to manage audio settings.
AnonD-297622, 23 Aug 2014i ordered my asus zenfone from flipkart..bt d charger i got isnt going inside the socket provi... moreThe charger doesn't fit the socket on the wall? You would need a travel adapter.
The USB cable does not fit into the charger? The USB cable on the other side does not fit into the phone?
I've seen this on one of my ZenFones, and it wasn't the phone fault but the cable fault, where it was very tight and hard to plug into the phone. So I changed the cable with the one that came with another mobile.
I don't know what the return policy from your store is, but in many cases a new cable might cost less than return shipping, which most shops require buyer to pay.
If you have any USB 2.0 to micro USB cable for a 2.5" external hard disk for example lying around, try with that. If the cable does not fit into the charger, check to see if the contact inside is bent… or use any other USB charger, or USB port of your computer.
The charger is 1.55 A, if I remember correctly, although I've always used Samsung's 2.5A charger for my phone, so try not to use 0.5A chargers as they would be very slow.
