I mean i had checked out few videos in youtube, in few videos an intel sticker is sticked on the box whereas in other few videos its not. So i just wanted to know how to identify the fake and orignal? Is there any perticular number for the original asus mobile? Kindly please reply me.
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 :)

Phone certainly supports more. Just tested speedtest on mine, using TrueMove-H 3G operator and get 7.1 mbps down and 2.04 mbps up.
Madan, 17 Jul 2014I been planning to take this mobile... clarify me: do this phone have FM How much the total... moreyes it have fm i will upload a video on YouTube tomorrow for fm and interal storage in 8gb is around 5gb is available to install app and 16gb have 11gb.
Prasad, 17 Jul 2014Thank you Dear Kirtiazad. The battery performance is bit poor as read in many reviews, with... morei am using this in india and India variant has 1.6 dual core so it warm less and uses less amount of battery highest temperature after 3hrs asphalt 8 is 42c so not feel warn like my previous samsung s4 60c and htc one x+ 57c so not feel warm its average if room tem is 34c.
Prasad, 17 Jul 2014Friends please let me know, in specification its mentioned that there is no Radio. Is it true ... moreIt certainly has FM radio.
Note though that it has only 1 decimal for frequency though.
So 102.5 MHz is OK. 102.25 is NOT OK, you can only do 102.2 or 102.3. It doesn't have the second decimal.
You need headset or headphones plugged in as they act as an antenna. Reception is quite good, with decent headset at least. Sound quality is reasonably good.
is this zenphone is 3G video calling bcoz da latest mobile of nokia xl is 3G but cant do 3g video calling only by skype

I heared that some issues in this phone like
1. Much dead pixels on screen
2. Some problems with facebook
3. Bluetooth not work properly
I have 2 and have played with many more, haven't seen any with dead dots.
Facebook problem can be fixed by installing version 10, or upgrading OS - it's under downloads on Asus site. Download file, unzip it. Plug phone in PC with USB cable and open the new "drive" that appears - dump file in root folder. Unplug the cable when done - it will notify you that an update was found and ask if you want to install it, choose yes. That's it.
No problem on Bluetooth with Jabra headset and iPhone dock bluetooth receiver. Not sure what problems you are referring to. Connections are not dropped and quality of sound is quite good. Didn't try more than calls and streaming music through it though.
So no to all 3 you mentioned.

Zaroon, 17 Jul 2014Hello Guys!! I request to kindly help me to clear the follwing doubts regarding asus zenfone 5... more1.yes zenfone 5 support move to sd card but only with some app and for game obb file must be place in internal storage to just installing asphalt 8 and modern combat 4 consume 3.5gb space so for gaming go with 16gb if want more than one game but you can place the data in sd and when needed move in internal i am doing same internal transfer much fast around 24mbps.
2.yes connect mobile to laptop and tv also to mirror the display in laptop use software PC LINK.
3.3hrs asphalt 8 consume only 30% and battery last for a day very easily if you are an heavy user.
4.yes it support viber whatsapp etc
5.for document reading amazon kindle and ofifce pre install for edit use 3rd party app for fine.
6.surfing internet is great experience not feel any lag.
7.nexus 7 1st and 2nd generation is big success and asus is famous for his motherboard so service center is not problem in Hyderabad because its a famous place but in Andaman Nicobar service is a problem.

Yes, there is an option in the Settings under Apps to prefer internal storage or use SD card "if app supports it" - so it's up to App. But in my case majority had no issues to use SD card. There's also a Move command in there where you can just select apps and move them to SD... or back.
i have brought this mobile , it dail pad there is no such 3G video call option
unable to charge the phone in PC , it show as charging but not, apart from that while using games phone get heat with higher games , some one can tell me how do i able to charge my asus zenfone through pc with data cable , u can just mail me email@example.com
Sob, 15 Jul 2014What about its battery life? Many say its worse..
Can I have a opinion from a user who bought... moreBattery life?
In my case 1 day heavy use, 2 days light use.
Taken off the charger at 7-8 am, down to about 5-10% at the end of the next day's 10 pm if I don't use it much, or around 30% at the end of same day if I use it a lot.
If you use screen or camera a lot, it will of course be shorter. In a test, it went from 100 to 9% on playing FullHD MKV video file with max. speaker and 50% brightness on the screen (1.5 hour video files) for a little over 9 hours.
All this time it was on 3G with full signal. Tower's just next to my place. Wifi and Bluetooth were off, location services were disabled during this test.
Ali, 14 Jul 2014My question... What about its wifi signals? It automatically disconnected wifi when it went ... moreDepends on your power settings. On Ultra Saver it will cut the wifi when it goes to sleep, on balanced it will not. On custom - well, whatever you choose.
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2014do anyone have it because the specs are really impressing and i would like to know all the dis... moreYou wish to know disadvantages..
OK, Android is not (yet) optimised for Atom CPU, so you might get occasional glitches like on scrolling the screen, or on some apps there's a temporary freeze of a second, before it continues.
The What's next keeps crashing. It's wonderful piece of software, just doesn't work.
Battery is built in and replacing it, although not hard, voids warranty as you need to remove inner plate and screws - and one of them has warranty sticker on.
Front cam is nothing to write home about, and back cam is decent, but not excellent. The much touted night mode isn't anywhere near as good as Asus tries to make you believe.
Internal memory is limited but you can easily expand with MicroSD card up to 64 GB. You can set the camera, downloads, music, even apps to use SD card. Class 10 recommended for FullHD video.
HD and SD video camera sucks. FullHD is actually quite good in reasonable light.
The construction quality may be lacking. One of the 2 phones I have has a very tight USB connector (not fault of phone but cable that came with charger in the box), and a very hard to press power button - the other one is perfect on these, but has slightly misaligned camera, a fraction of mm, but still annoying. Although that could be issues of start of production.
The speaker and the inner headphone distort ringing sound pretty badly.
The volume on headphones is not high enough. Should be louder.
The notification light is broken out of the box. You can get a free widget from Motorola to compensate, though.
Voice quality is OK, but not perfect. It also does not filter out background noise well. That said, most other smartphones are no better or even worse.
But worst of all, the power button is too high to press comfortably in single-hand operation, and the 3 sensor buttons below the screen are not illuminated.
That's the disadvantages.
But all that said, it is still a great value for money, and a pleasure to use, despite all of the above. Some of the things may be fixed in firmware and OS updates, some others by improving production process (and may have already been fixed in the phones reaching the shelves now), and some... well, we'll just have to live with. That's the price of a compromise to get it in this price range.
