Hi guys...bought one ZF5 from a local dealer here in Malaysia...after using it for a week..here is my conclusion based on hands on experience using ZF5:
1: faced "read contact" pop up error
2: battery life really S**KS..max normal calls,texts,whatsapp,with wifi,data and playing a bit games ---MAX 6 hours
3: GPS lag..for waze & maps
4: Feels sluggish for a 2.0ghz multi core with 2gb ram..i've compared with my other phones (lenovo S939 & A850plus) which have a lower specs than ZF5...it feels like my two lenovos are twice faster and smoother when it comes to multi tasking and playing games..
The first 3 problems i managed to solve it by sending my ZF5 to my dealer for a re-flash of the latest firmware..now its working fine with no issue..but the sluggish feeling is still there..
All-in all i think ZF5 is just OK only..with the exception of it's SUPERB Pixel Master Camera and outlook feeling..i advise to be prepared to face either one of the 3 problems i faced or ALL of IT..

Hey guys!Planning to buy this phone (Zenfone 5).I found the specifications to be pretty impressive with the given price (awesome).Although i have a few questions for the people who already have the phone and been using it for a while.
1.Battery:How long does it last with heavy gaming?Does it last a day with the internet on 24/7 along with other usage like music and apps?What do you guys think about the overall performance of the battery
2.Gaming:Does it lag while playing high end games?Does it heat up while gaming?
Any other issues?
Thanks in advance guys,waiting for your responses :)
