I bought this phone about 3 weeks ago, for the first time it happen to be a little bit problem, some lagging when playing video and lagging when record video, since I not very happy enough, I brought my phone to asus center, and they found out that theres a problem with the motherboard and have to be replace but must wait for two weeks, so after two weeks, a little bit improvements happen. But phone software must be updated. But theres only one thing makes me disappointed gaming performance with Asphalt 8 Airbone. So much lagging even the RAM still have 1.4GB free. I dont understand, my friend bought a cheap phone 1.3 GHz with 1 GB RAM, no lagging , smooth, got jealous because of the cheap phone compare with mine 1.6GHz and 2GB RAM cannot bring better gaming performance other than that Good phone design, and cool ZENUi.
abhi_hs18, 11 Apr 2015I want to ask one thing about battery performance if fon will update in lollypop.
it will b... moreIn android lollipop Google changed its default runtime to "ART"...earlier in kitkat it used Dalvik as its runtime.
so, in kitkat Intel has to recode everything from Dalvik to Art which caused battery drain.
As Intel's native runtime is ART, now it uses less battery on lollipop.
Akki, 05 Apr 2015What was price u have bought it ??I bought it at a price of RM599 which include a RM10 screen protector and RM50 flip casing. I guess different vendor offers different price and free gifts. I've seen somewhere they offer the Z2560 as low as RM520. If you're lucky you might find the Zenfone 5 retailed at RM499.
Tapas knr, 16 Apr 2015This device can lolipopat present kitkat available but in april end lollipop is releasing
