I just received my ASUS Zenphone 5 today. But to my total dismay, the phone, about which I have read such rave reviews, just would not switch on. I have been using an Xperia Pro for more than 2 years now, but this is just exasperatingly bad performance. When switched on, the screen lights up to an off-while color, flickers for a while and goes dark. It is just not booting up. Man, this is frustrating. ASUS guys, please help, or someone. I am getting it replaced for a new one, or getting a refund otherwise.
first day Battery life was not good,but now it can hold 22 hours..I think it takes sometime to increase battery life..
