Fast and full of extras! The speaker (hardware) fail easily. It was a hardware error in this model. The replacement speaker is more durable (better build quality). The photographic quality is average. Nothing special, equivalent to a Chinese low cost smartphone. Even if we use photographic software like A BETTER CAMERA, the results are not surprising / not so Good. 3G is fast and fluid. Reacts well when you use the First Class Radio APP, and works perfectly even when the sound of the radio is playing in 3G and even in 2.5G. A pleasant surprise. The sound quality of the speaker and the microphone is quite good, and the conversation is natural and sharp. The screen has a good definition and colors are vivid and intense.
Value for money is a pleasant shopping, however within this price range there are interesting competitors with much better photo quality.

pritcr07, 30 Dec 2015my zenfone 5 has this issue of loss of network connectivity for hours and after 3 or 4 hrs, an... moreSame problem with network. It's a shame, but Asus released a firmware that cause that problem. After a lot of emails, the support said that I needed to make a downgrade. Shame, shame, shame... downgrade the "solution". Lost everything on the phone and now it's running a older version.
They said to send it for 'repair'.
An advise? Give it away and buy another. I'm thinking about Meizu or Lenovo.
