bought z5 about 1 week.
1st of all, i bought a xiaomi mi3 with rm769 and i sold it and get this 1.6gb 2gd ram version with rm550.
the main reason is i need a dual sim phone.
i were always think to buy Moto G, but the only this stop me to get it is due to the 5mp camera, yes i like to take great pics. i cant accept lousy image quality.
and lucky, not so bad for zen5.
screen - Gorilla Glass 3, 720p, color looks dim compare to other phone even i set the brightness to 100%. anyway, this indirectly can help to reduce battery usage.
battery,my main concern, i worry before i bought this becoz most of the ppl here review that the battery life is sucks.
my experiece - battery is fine.
unplug from morning 7.30am, with 3g always on, on & off use wifi, it can last until 10pm.
with average surfing net, call and play around.
wifi - no problem at all.
3g, i ever experienced that when i on the 3g, it took me about 5 minutes to connect.
the fastest way is on the 3G and restart the phone.
but now seem resolved after software update.
facebook - yes i cant use the fb app directly downloaded from play store also. you can solve this by download the fb app in google.
now my not so good experiences with this phone.
push mail - i need to use pop3 for push mail but it not working. i need to manually refresh then i can receive new email. which is really disappointed to me.
camera - night mode is not bad. but the overall image quality still not on par with my 2 years old samsung s3.
speaker - speaker not strong, even i set to the loudest.
Overall, i no regret to bought this phone. it really nice. with the price 550,really worth to invest.

Just bought the zenfone6 few days ago. Everything works fine, except the wifi :(
The signal is terrible, it keeps disconnecting. Also everytime the screen goes into sleep, the wifi disconnect, when I turn it on, the "data" icon is on, and it takes a few seconds before the wifi to connect.
I check every "power" settings, still the same.
Please, Asus, fix it in a next release.
Asus had already release a new update to fix the facebook issue. it's solved
May I ask is it the message tone for the asus zenfone 5 cannot be changed or added new message tone, since I can't apply on it?
