Zaroon, 20 Jul 2014yea bro, but i prefer black. In flipkart only white is available. And white becomes dirty soon... moreAlthough I haven't seen it for sale yet, I am sure you'd be able to buy the back plate in any colour soon.
I've ordered the flip case (with that circular hole) and it comes with the new back plate as well.
My phone is white but the covers bought are white and black, so I'm using the black one right now.
This is a cheap knock-off of original Asus smart cover that costs 35$, this one costs like 10$, but both come with new back plate.
So I'd say it's just a matter of time before you could buy a spare one on eBay.
There are also tons of cases for the Zenfone on eBay from China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, costing close to nothing, that fix the issue of the back plate getting dirty. Some protect it from drops and scratches as well.
I like Nillkin ones. They are of a very high quality and in 10$ price range.
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2014Sir,
Whole point of buying a phone is to meet a the primary need of making calls and if they ... moreUmm... disagree.
At least in Thailand, most youngsters no longer make any voice phone calls. They buy social media internet pack, which gives them unlimited use of Whatsapp, Facebook, Line, Instagram, etc. for 5$/month, and send messages to each other or use Line/Whatsapp for making calls.
Years back people did make voice calls most of the time, but that's long gone here.
So no, people no longer buy phones to make phone calls. They buy them for camera, music player, games console, TV on the go, social media interaction platform, ... and yes, from time to time, if there's really no other way around it, some SMS and occasional phone call.
As speed of internet in India speeds up, and proliferation of smartphones to all classes of society increases, I am pretty confident same thing will happen there.
Zombie generation... you see 100 people. 0 talk to each other. All staring at the little screen in front of them.
And Asus (especially Zenfone 4 with its ridiculously low price) will be a pretty heavy contributor to this :)
balaji, 20 Jul 2014I use data 24*7 on my moto g, and guess what, I don't need a power bank, my battery lasts more... moreI use the Lenovo P780, I had to watch stream videos from 10pm to 3am just to get the power below 15% so I can do a battery calibration.
Dinesh, 20 Jul 2014I have got this same phone through flipkart on 16-07-2014 white color am using past 3-days wha... moreWith your battery lasting only 4 hours, something must be seriously wrong. Can you open the Settings, and in it Battery, and check what it shows under that percentages?
Mine generally lasts about 40-45 hours with light use, and about 25 hours with moderate use.
I use the balanced power mode, not ultra saving, but I believe that's what it switches to at 30%.

Hello guys. I have been using this phone for about a month and i cannot use the waze properly, i mean the gps is not showing the accurate place. And i did install gps status and toolbox to check the gps but sadly it's only shows loading icon. Gps is essential to me. Does anyone faced same problem here?
i jss had bought asus zenfone 5 16 gb (2gb ram 1.6 g hz processer )a week ago my xperience wid dis phone is awesomee..........but there are sum drawbacks wid this mob
-camera in indoor and low light is normal and flash effect is also moderate
-battery drains fast even wid single sim and 2g
-very awesome smooth touch and processing speed is vry gud
-it has eqipped with 1.6 gz dual core processer with hyper threding technology so when ever requires it works as quad core processer
--AND THE BEST PART IS THE WHOLE INTERNAL MEMORY 8/16 GB CAN BE USED FOR APPS AND ITS UPDATES NO SPL MEMORY IS ALLOCATED so insert sd ard and use it unlimitedly
--camera featurres are good and mobile is awesome i luv it a lot
Zaroon, 20 Jul 2014yea bro, but i prefer black. In flipkart only white is available. And white becomes dirty soon... moreBrother i bought gold
What a look.
the flipkart gold doesn't show true colour and class of good
On YouTube just type zenfone gold and watch videos of gold.
That would show you true classy look of gold. Way better than black.
+ all phones look the same from front, so you can always buy new cover and fulfill your black mobile dream
