-Pros: cheap and light, suitable for normal usage, clean AI.
-Cons: fast heat(especially FB), small battery, too saturated camera.
As I see, it's fairly cheap for this phone.
Heats up fastly and less battery backup. Now i am hearing a wind sound from my phones speaker. Now it is the second time.
battery drain fast and deffective in just 3 months wen i buy it..its not good i regret buying this brand!!!
Waste of money ..
I had bought a phone and within one month its speaker damaged and i get it repaired and now a new problem occured..
Its screen had breaked. They had published that its gorilla glass but i cant even think a breakage of gorilla glass by falling from a small height(34inch) i had used a nokia 1100 its far better than this in case of body quality...
I had made a stupid decision on selecting this phone..
this phone are sucks. why :
- heats a lot
- battery drains like hell
- not durable
Linku(dhalpur,boudh), 15 Jun 2016It is the worsest phone ever.don't use this phone.hahaha yeah... always battery fast drain
My Zenfone 5 stopped working after I dropped it in the sink for a few seconds. Not durable at all.
im look so far its good , this phone nice for play games or socmed (social media), and worth it
i used it 1 year. it has no problem. but recently its get too much slow...
I already use this phone for almost 2 years... so far it's good phone and the price is cheap.. only the battery life isn't too good....
This is a cheap but capable phone. If you bought this thinking you were going to be able to play hours and hours of computer games it is not the fault of the phone. You will get a days use out of it with casual use. Remember to quite applications after you have finished with them. I bought this phone and have used it now for 1.5 years and it has served fine.
Yes it is up-gradable to lollipop but you had to download the install package and do it manually. It was faster after the upgrade.
I have written this review to counter the trivial childish whinges from people who expect miracles for under 200 dollars. It is what it is. A reasonable cheap smart phone on par with those at the same price point.
The external speakers could be louder.
ASUS insists on its own bloatware (but they are not alone)
The battery does appear to be draining faster as the phone ages, but this is par for the course of Lithium batteries.
It's a portable heater that needs charging every 5 hours. That's it!
Ive been using this Phone since 1.5 Years. I found it very smooth and responsive. But i found battery getting drained very fast.
Poor battery life. Hangs frequently while talking on the phone and we have to restart it.
If we install many applications, then phone hangs.
Hey guys I am using zenfone 5 almost for 1.5 years ,there is no lag and the set runs smoothly on high end games and multi tasking,display and touch sensitivity id awesome but the worst part is camera and battery,front camera looks like vga and rear camera is so poor it dont even look like 5 mp. I get maximum charge upto 5 hours when am using continuosly like gaming or browsing.the design is pretty well .but overall its not a perfect phone but for 10k its okay.
