RENJU, 11 Jan 2015 i just want to know that, is this phone is good choice to buy or not.
all in all its a pretty descent Phone specialy for its really low price.
but if you decide to buy it NEVER EVER update it it gave me pretty harsh problems with the battery that so far has not bin fixed. then again it runs just fine on android 4.3
there i no need for updating really.
asus user, 11 Jan 2015yeah actually i am a gamer, i am not complaining, and im just asking, why all this happen. i ... moreafter the screen the gpu is the nr 1 power drainer. sadly the intel soc in this Phone is 28nm rather then 22nm which also means under load it uses a but more power. so al in all when you game you use the top 3 power drainers (screen>gpu>cpu) all at once and that will kill any battert fast.
the reality is phones and tablets can game pretty good but they still arent designed for it and no battery will last long with gaming even tho some games are more power efficient then others.
on my asus me173 tablet with 3300 mah battery i can play DOA for 8 hours but when i install a semi 3d game it drops to 6 hours and when i play a 3d shooter it drops to 4,5 hours.
gaming just drains battery up to 2x as fast.
AnonD-348081, 11 Jan 2015sorry i didnt understand quite what you say..I only understand that the battery display is wro... morethere is no such thing as battery calibration.
every time you remove the plug on full charge it resets the file. all these battery calibration apps do absolutely nothing.
this is a software error mostly caused by updating firmware.
i most likely have found a fix but im still testing further before i will confirm it.
but it basicly means screwing open your Phone drain it to 1 or 2% and pull the battery from the Phone then restart the Phone and if correct it will show the remaining % of the charge correctly (mine went to 37%.
then continue draining your battery till it shuts down and then just charge the Phone and mine since (3 charges now) does not drop fast anymore and lasts over 7 hours each charge and i might have drained it faster then my regular 8 and a half hours because i went to facebook and scrolled trough pictures non stop so it loaded a lot more pages then you would on normal use without pause.
so so far this seems to work wonders. charge drops smooth to 1% and shuts off after 1%.
you will get some apps complaining about time as for some reason the Phone will lose time and date.
soset those first and then open apps.

AnonD-348081, 10 Jan 2015the battery perfomance is good and it holds much longer than you mentioned...Its 3300 mah powe... moresorry but thats just bollox. the one time this Phone worked correctly for me i had it last 3 days 5 hours and had a screen on time of 8 hours and 22 min. in a single day and 16 hours i had it last 9 hours 2 min screen on time.
thats with wifi Always on and data set to 2G as edge is fast enough for my whatsapp needs.
so that is what this Phone is capable off.
that was unrooted and intweaked btw. the apps on this Phone do NOTHING so i found rooting to mater little on this Phone.
however this Phone does have serious software issues that prevent battery from being displayed accurately.
i once hit 9 hours of charger and 1% with 4 hours screen on on which it lasted another 4 hours and 20 min on 1%. so 90% of the people thinking they have battery issues have issues with the battery display instead.

I have download a certain RAM checker... It says 2gb faked ram? Is there such a faked ram? I've tried using this ram checker on a different android phones and so far it's giving us the right specifications of the phone. What do you think guys!
Battery performance is poor. Under normal use as with my previous phone, Zenfone 6 can hardly last a day. In two hours time, the battery power went down to 60%. What do you do with a flat dead battery handphone after 4 hours of continue use? I asked Asus service and they didn't have a clue.
