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

AnonD-204192, 20 Jul 2014really if you tell not like this phone in 10k then i don't know that you what in 10k phone or ... moreSir,
Whole point of buying a phone is to meet a the primary need of making calls and if they are not getting met irrespective of cost of handset ,it doesn't make sense.
I understand lost of people may interested to buy this phone for the gaming purpose or buy from a brand(asus) which not the conventional ones(Like Samsung,HTC or Sony).
But I sear 75% of the people are interested to ensure the Phone purpose and rest of the features are differentiators.
I have noticed after listening to all the hue and cry about the battery of zenfone 5
My battery gave extremely decent performance in gaming music and videos and calls.
It is only when i switch on the internet that the quick battery drain begins (the one people r complaining).
Therefore i urge all my zenfone 5 friends. Do not switch on ur data unnecessarily. Use data when necessary.
If u do this
U can pull off 10-12 hours from a 100% charged zenfone 5.
N people who keep the data on 24*7 should better buy a mediatek chipset micromax canvas power or gionee m2 or a power bank.
[deleted post]really if you tell not like this phone in 10k then i don't know that you what in 10k phone or you are a big fan of Samsung and ready to buy crap phone from Samsung every time. zenfone is very good phone my berry ast of a day easily and use power bank if some problem with yours cost only rs1000 and charge you phone full 5 times.
I have got this same phone through flipkart on 16-07-2014 white color am using past 3-days what ever spec provided is good for this price range but battery backup is not good in this phone even its 2110mah.....am a normal user whatsup phone call even though it only stands for 4hrs per day then again you have charge 100% for next 4hrs usage...battery backup is not good i have updated latest firmware for this in which they provided fix for battery backup after updating also same 4hrs only....
Good camera in day time
normal camera indore and night time
i have installed and played some games for testing- its good no lags
It support FB & WATSAPP
its doesnt support OTG(in kitkat update we may get)
Battery backup -4hrs for normal usage(its drains very quickly)
Even if you get all the features but battery doesnt have backup for 1day normal usage then every one should thinkoff
please provide correct review after using the phone. its helps people to select the correct phone for them..
rajivrocks, 20 Jul 2014hey tomazz! why do you recommend the 8gb version over the 16gb version? the bigger the better?... moreI went with 8 GB, which is the only one available in Thailand. If they had 16, I'd probably take it. Would I still take it with faster CPU? Maybe not - and the reason is that the speed at 1.6 GHz is sufficient for what I use, and faster CPU might heat more and drain battery faster.
8 GB is not much though, and that's why I've also got 32 GB class U1 microSD card to go with it (about 28$ here from Sandisk, others could be cheaper), to use for camera, videos and music.
I keep apps in main memory but I've seen some limitations to SD card use - you can't save multishot photos to SD, no matter how fast. Screenshots are always put in internal memory. Upgrade of OS can only be done from internal memory (root of it) and it's 600+ MB. So I guess to do it you'd need 1.5 GB free. 8 GB is also total size of internal MMC flash card, meaning only about 5.x GB is available for your use.
So if you have a choice between 8 and 16 GB, and the price difference is tiny, take 16 GB. It may come with faster CPU, which could generate more heat and drain battery faster.
If price difference is high, or if you can live with running apps from SD card, and saving videos and photos to it (normal photos all go to SD, just burst shots and screenshots don't, as well as saved FaceBook photos and anything saved from web browsers) then take 8 GB and get a large, fast microSD instead.
If difference was 50$ in price between 8 and 16 GB, you could have gotten yourself 8GB + 64GB U1 card = 72 GB.
Standard class 10 (don't take class 4 or 6 as they are too slow for full HD video) is even cheaper.
That's my opinion, of course you should do what you feel being better :)
