A year after the release, this is still a very popular phone. Save for the disappointing battery life and lifeless speaker, this is a great value for money phone that make sammy or xpery phones at this price wet their pants.
I have a problem with my on and off button. it keeps shutting down by itself and now the button is not even working.
karthik, 17 May 2015I need a help my zf 5 have a very low speaker how it will solve..it cant be solved... yet. ZF5 speaker is a little low. lets hope Asus will fix this issue with the lollipop update.
akash, 17 May 2015guys, should i buy this phone?Do you have any other brands in preference?
Im glad that not only me have overcome this problem. And also, today. Im using zenfone 5 a500cg with 1.6ghz/2gb ram variant. I used my phone for wifi browsing using google chrome(airplane mode), and my battery drains 1% every 3 minutes. So i got roughly 5 hours of browsing time via wifi and 5 hours screen on time. I just want to know that is this normal? How long does your device lasts with my setup mentioned above? Note that i didnt use power saving at all. Please respond. Thank you
Anonymous, 16 May 2015Thanx for your kind information..that might have solve my battery problemYa...me too...i im always charging my Asus zenfone 5 at 80% ...and it is giving me better battery backup...if we charge it to 100%, the battery will drain soon...i also experience the same...:-)
I hve bought a zenfone 5 its a good fone but majot problem is batery life .it has 21!0 MAh battery but not get for even 5hrs any idea to solve this
Chandu, 14 May 2015Hi Bought zenfone 5 two days back only. It's really good. But my touch keys are not lightnin... moreAdus hasnt given backlight for the back keys......it cannot be resolved....... Its a drawback.........
For INFORMATION GUYS. if you want better battery backup, DO NOT charge your ZF5 to 100% ! Unplug at 90 %. Ive experienced this first hand it will give better backup. I browed using UC for 1 hour and counsume 23% battery after applying this technique.
doctor shadow, 15 May 2015Bro i phone 6 has less battery life but You surf net in safari in phone and uc brower in zen... moreAllright ill check browsing iphone 6 using uc browser. ThenI'll post the result here later.
jishu, 15 May 2015 please Release the Higher mAh(say, 3000 mAh) battery & make it available at service cent... moreTotally agree with you sir! I'll pay more for better battery. Because once the battery is better, ZF5 will be the best mid-range in history hehe
please Release the Higher mAh(say, 3000 mAh) battery & make it available at service centers for zenfone 5 so we can replace our weak battery into stronger one with some extra cost.
Atleast do this much favour on your customers.
