hi.........i'm not able to listen what the caller is saying to me its totally blanked but when i put it on speaker phone then i'm able to listen everything......if anyone has the answer plssssss help me out.
Nice Feedback frank! :)
I really like what you've said.
I am also a Zenphone 5 user for almost a month now.
Very much satisfied with the unit even if we saw some disadvantages like battery life or heating issue, every phone has it owns positive and negative but for this one, you can't actually imagine how ASUS deliver a unit like this despite of the fact that it only cost around 6 to 7k here in Philippines.
For those who have tight budget and looking for a very nice phone, go to ASUS ZENPHONE 5, don't based only to those commenting so much negative about the phone!. .
See it for yourself, go to ASUS showroom to check it.
But in my case, reviews matters, Zenphone 5 does really have more Positive reviews that negative. Check it out, not just here in GSMARENA! :)

cee, 13 Aug 2014I have been using this phone for the last 2 months.this phone really sucks.the battery backup ... moreYou think anyone will listen to your unnecessary hatred? It 'sux' because it has average battery life? Camera is very good for the price.
cee, 13 Aug 2014I have been using this phone for the last 2 months.this phone really sucks.the battery backup ... moreOK…
You see here's the problem. I have an Oppo Find 7 as well, and Zen's battery lasts at least 3x longer. And when it comes to camera, in 1080p you would be hard pressed to guess which video was taken with which phone (obviously, in 4k shooting Oppo takes the title).
If you used a standard resolution screen, not FullHD or 4K, and compared the photos, except for better fine details from Oppo, and more saturation from Asus it's also very hard to know which photo came from which phone.
Obviously at 100% zoom, that's immediately crystal clear.
But with Oppo being one of the best camera phones out there, I would say that Zen holds up well.
Obviously when you consider the fact that you could buy one Zen for each family member for the price of one Oppo, I think it is a very good bang for buck.
I would kindly like to ask you to provide suggestions to people who are not willing to spend on G3/Find7/S5/Z2, and have a 10k RS budget - what phone that does not suck should they get?
Asyraf777, 13 Aug 2014Whats the diff between WW/TW/CN?mine is CNT..what does it stand for?I only know CHT, CN, TW and WW.
CHT is supposedly for Hong Kong.
Maybe someone else can confirm this…
CNT I do not know though.

I have been using this phone for the last 2 months.this phone really sucks.the battery backup is below average and the cam is good for nothing.guys plz don't buy this
Hi im from the Philippines
im planning to buy this phone , i check it out online by watching videos for antutu and game test camare is good and the performance is great ,, it was amazing and majority of those videos inspired audience to buy the product. here in the philippines it cost around 6k to 7k with this specs hyper threading which is the newest features of Intel it really makes me decide to buy it . :) i work for dell tech support and usually beside me is a laptop with hyperthreading capability no issue with the performance and also FYI if the core is 2 and it has hyper threading it is totally equal to 4 core . try to watch some videos that will show how the hyper threading works :).. remember that intel known as manufacturer for processor that is for multitasking not totally for gaming but take note that all processors once they have been used for intense gaming definitely there is a high chance of getting hot with the device, known negative reason they compare the intel to AMD is because of heating but if you know about the processor like AMD and Snapdragon they were designed for gaming purposes but they were also designed for overclocking and result of having that is higher chance of heating and faulty processor ., but AMD and snapdragon are amazing processors . just manage your task and take care of your phone in reality there is no perfect world when it comes to technology , one thing i like about this device is the 2gb ram . ram known as the processing memory if you have processor that has a hyper threading and 2gb ram for processing memory and with this price men it's just like u've got one of the hottest girls in town right :).. if you want to buy ths phone i advice you to visit ASUS store and check it out there , feel it .
can anybody please tell me about the punjabi font readability on zenfone.can we read punjabi fonts on zenfone?????
krikkrik, 12 Aug 2014Hi, anyone who's using Zenfone 5, can your help me to solve my problem? I still can't update m... moreI don't have that issue with WhatsApp, but then I did allow it to read my contacts when it first asked.
As for Kit Kat - you can't do it, because there is no KitKat release for ZenFones from Asus yet. It has been promised to be released soon, and from what rumours we hear, it is coming together with the whole PadFone family ZenUI updates. That's just a rumour.
Phone does support KitKat, and when it's ready it would get available for download from Asus site, and/or OTA updated to your phone.
But as of now, it's not available. Sorry.
krikkrik, 12 Aug 2014Sorry if this is dumb quest. But may i know, how can we know what version we want to download ... moreNot a dumb question at all :)
If you look at the back of the box of your phone, on the sticker, there would be model and specifications. In my case it states (at the bottom of the sticker with several barcodes): A501CG,WHITE,WW-3G,D,8GB EMMC+2G RAM, INTEL CLT+Z2560,5/8M WWE-ANDROID,N/A,N/A
Now above see WW-3G. So this is a WW model.
When you go to Asus support site, you will see firmware downloads, and they would have versions, such as
Version V220.127.116.11(WW) or Version V18.104.22.168(TW)
The WW or TW or CN or... must match what your phone is. So if your phone is WW, you need to download the (WW) version of firmware.
Hope that makes it clearer :)
The firmware downloads are at:
Choose Android or Other in the OS selection, then Firmware.

Download (if it's not in there, but I think there is) another widget that has only time and place it in its space.
