swee lah..although battery is draining faster like 5 hour when playing game or on wifi..I just realize the large file app can move to my 16G memory card...which is not bad...overall is a good fone..for battery problem can use extra mobile battery charger and for storage problem can slowly get a 16G or 32G and move the app to yr memory card.no problem at all
asus_zenfone5, 07 Aug 2014Hi friends,I wanna buy mobile n now I am in dilemma to buy Lenovo S850 or Asus Zenfone 5,or sh... morei would suggest zenfone 5 over Lenovo because of 1gb ram it has. But Camera is of higher Mpixel if you want higher camera then go for Lenovo. i would not suggest Mi3 because it doesn't have dual Sim. Now a days everyone is keeping two connection which is very useful and smart way. because if u r getting network problem on one , u can use another. But If you are a hardcore Gamer and doesn't mind carrying two phones in your pocket and not a brand conscious and not worried about more memory beyond 12-13gb then Buy Mi3.
Prasad, 07 Aug 2014Dear all i wanted to buy a new set with Kitkat version which is good Zenfone 5 or Moto G or LG... moreIf you are not price conscious my first choice would be G2 then Asus Then Moto G. Or else you can consider about to release XOLO Hive. Don't Put your money on Mi3 just for Snapdragon 800.
AnonD-289850, 07 Aug 2014I have a white asus zenfone 5 and im inlove with its design. It has an FM radio app thank god.... moreIn My case battery back up is good with continuous wifi on. Update to latest firmware. I posted screenshots.
I have a white asus zenfone 5 and im inlove with its design. It has an FM radio app thank god. The ram's 2gb with 8gb internal memory. Theres only 4.99gb left with the 8gb internal memory cos of the phone's OS. Thank god for sd cards i was able to transfer all the bigger apps there. I actually can transfer almost all the apps that i downloaded from the google store. I love this phone. I love how slender it feels. Its very affordable but it doesnt look and feel cheap. The only complain i have is the battery life. It drains fast. Im connected to wifi all the time so if i use it continuously (no games just texting, no calls, just plain surfing, chatting, facebook, twitter, just basic stuff) it will probably just last for 7-8hrs. Thank god i have a powerbank that i can use just in case it drains completely and i have nowhere to charge it. So to all owners of zenfone 5 INVEST ON POWERBANKS cos you will need it.

can Asus Zenfone 5 open a type of file (application .exe) with the description adobe flash player 10.0r2? thanks
Dr Manoj, 07 Aug 2014This Phone gets Heatup !! Dont buy this phone !! Better go for Mi3 My friend is having mi3 which is heating so much during games. Zenfone also getting heat but also during high end games only not with temple run like games.
I was on the lookout for a budget phone, which does not look phoney. After lots of research, hours of checking out reviews, I purchased Zenfone 5 from Asus. I was skeptical about this phone, but boy I was proven wrong. A lovely phone, having a premium feel, looks classy and simple. Its lightning fast, responsive, has a crystal clear cam & great HD capabilities. The battery life as depicted in reviews, aint that bad. On a full charge at 8am, minimal 3g usage, minimal music or browsing and chatting. After this i was left with 70% battery after 12 hours. 3g usage and gaming drains your battery briskly. But, this is a factor in all android phones. Overall, given the price it is a great phone.
Denny, 07 Aug 2014Buy Xiomi Mi3Yes Buy... Do some super computing stuff with that phone... other wise it's no use. it's a super Chinese phone. If you use two number then buy two super Mi3 phones. Then you will be king.
abinash, 07 Aug 2014i buy 16gb verson from amozon india at 11.759 ,i very happy with price but battery backup is t... moreU r lucky man. Check my screen shots posted earlier of battery usage. It's not a problem. Do latest firmware update from Asus.
Hey friends,I can't find the 8 gb model anywhere to order.I m waiting for more than 20 days and it is always shoeing out of stock in flipkart.This mobile is not available in any e-shopping site except.so from where to buy ?
thanks in advance
Switched from a premium Z2 to a Zenfone 5. After a full day, am pretty impressed with the Zenfone 5. I am a basic smartphone user, and the Zenfone did not fail. Its fast, and responsive. Ran Antutu and got a decent 19645 score. Battery is a wee bit weaker but then it could just be me. At only RM580, its a real bargain. Good work beefing up the RAM to 2GB Asus.
i've bought the phone 5 days ago. At first it performing well, and now it wont start. Why? After watching a video and poof! total blackout. Dont buy this crap!
Apart from the probable OTG support ,not sure why people are dying for the KitKat?
Also the advantage of this 2GB is only for gamers else on a normal course we run maximum with 800MB.
So ,if not a gamer,the 2GB is a useless resource for which we paid?
AnonD-291138, 05 Aug 2014Phone is extremely good, no lags, battery performance is also increased after getting update..... moreclick the power on button and volume decrease button at a time so that you can take a screen shot at any point in ur usage
asus_zenfone5, 07 Aug 2014Hi friends,I wanna buy mobile n now I am in dilemma to buy Lenovo S850 or Asus Zenfone 5,or sh... moreGo for Asus Zenfone 5. It is excellent phone.

With the 2GB RAM its performance its awesome you can play heavy graphics games smmothly.
And in 10000 it is really very good phone you also can check the Zenfoen 5 review before to buy.
Prasad, 07 Aug 2014Dear all i wanted to buy a new set with Kitkat version which is good Zenfone 5 or Moto G or LG... moreI suggest go for Zenfone 5.
