I'm using it for almost 2,5 year now. Great UI, fast and reliable. Great battery performance (no trash apps instaled eg Facebook). Shame there is no further updates, great phone though.
have been using this phone since 2014 till now I drop many times and crack the screen still its working yes battery suck but I don't blame it after u used for 3 yrs... one of the best smart phone.. wish Asus give OTA update for marshmallow....
i got the problem, my zenfone 5 "hanging" when battery at 20% sometime at 50% ..anybody have the same problem with me? it is because battery problem? how much cost to replace the battery?
YES ZENFONE 5 SUCKS over its quality. Warranty for a year is over and the board is giving trouble. It keeps on booting after the ASUS logo appears. Take it to the service center, they will charge for RM53 first for checking with the software and costs RM400 to replace the mother board for a month warranty , at the ASUS center in Penang. Malaysia.
The total repair costs almost amount to the costs of a new phone.!!!
Looks like the parametric and functional tests performed on this ZENFONE 5 during manufacturing cannot detected the " walking wounded " until it is in the field after the warranty period. i.e. ONE YEAR and kiss it good bye. !!!

eis, 21 Sep 2016I had the same problem,, do you have any suggestions for me? I hope my phone can be used again...I have the same problem, it appear invalid arguments and failed to mount etc.. etc.. the problem is the emmc chip,the partition table is messed up dew off updating that crashed or wrong installation of software to the system, if there is a .RAW firmware of this unit it may be able to fix by unblocked all the nodes (partitions tables). i asked the service center personnel about the issue and the cost is 2000.00 pesos (45 dollars converted) estimated cost.
Very important note: PLEASE, PLEASE before you do anything on the unit (update via OTA, install custom rom and other thing that can cause systems crash) please root it and install custom recovery (TWRP), this can be save your phone in the future.

If you want better battery back-up and stability, KitKat 4.4 stock Rom is the best!
I had no issues with this phone for the first year since i purchased it. After 17 months, phone started to fuck up.. the phone does not charge when powered on, i made a research and found it was a common issue with this phone. I brought it to a service center nearby and the technician charged me 1200php (philippine peso) by replacing a defective part connected to the motherboard. The problem was solved, but now after 3 months, i am having the same problem again..
