At the end of 2015 (1+ year after purchase) a lot of phones have bricked, no boot, no repair mode. Tons of complains on ASUS forums, especially TW.
ASUS don't want to take responsibility for this fail, extend warranty or fix those massive problems.

Don't buy Asus phones. It is cheap but unreliable. After a year, my Asus Zenfone 5 A500KL could not boot. Brought it to the service centre and they diagnosed that the motherboard was spoiled. Warranty is over and i had to pay S$232 for replacement + S$80 labour cost. Not worth the money.
I used this phone too,. Just one problem where i found there, the procesor eat too much energy from the battery 😧
Overall i'ts good verywell 😊
I have upgraded my A500KL Lollipop without problems, the problem of SD card not inserted occasionally happens to me too, but just restart seems a quick solution, what bothers me most is that sometimes mysteriously the SIMCard goes become unconnected in the night and the device is offline... for this i must switch off the device for 1 minute then restart. For both bug i have didn't found at the time any ASUS solution, i'm waiting for a new upgrade of OS by ASUS, in hope the bugs are resolved. Except a relative slowness to call, the phone works very well.
i have upgraded to lollipop and now the flashlight is not working . showing every time extenal sdcard inserted .
