I am using this phone for more than a week till now no hanging problem, heating issue is there but its not that bad. I did OTA update to kitkat on the same day i bought the phone before downloading any apps, there is battery drain if we play & also heats up, no signal issue till now, Call quality is really good, Speaker volume for music is little low even in my previous phone the sound is low so its not a problem my previous one is XOLO Q800 but through the headphone they gave is really good.

I just want to know if using WIFI with ASUS ZENPHONE needs the MOBILE DATA to be turned OFF always? and is it normal that the phone gets overheat? Just bought this phone and I'm experiencing these issues for 3 days use only. Thank you.

Moto G2 or Zenfone 5..Please suggest..

Problems I faced :
First, the battery is not good enough. I get one full day. No gaming. Simple call usage and fair use of internet.
Battery has to improve for sure.

After KITKAT update, phone stopped identifying the SIM slots. I was very very angry. The phone was of no use.
I ordered a replacement from FLIPKART. It took some time, but finally I got my replacement.

Now I have not done any system updates. So its working smooth. I am worried that the moment I do the OTA KITKAT update, I will start getting problems. So staying and playing safe here with 'out of the box' OS version.

Looks and feel is awesome. Display is good enough. Camera is good.

For the price(9K) I paid, I am happy right now. Hope I don't face anything major again

ASUS, please please work on SIM slot detecting issues. Other issues can be worked out, but if the phone doesn't identify SIM, then what's the point having a phone.

Go to sound>Phone Ringtone>Select desired sim>List of rigtone> Then on top pf list you will find Add Ringtones> Then you will see list Mp3 songs stored in your memory card. Select as per your requirement.

I replied you and said explore the mobile, so you can learn new settings as well. But with out exploring you again asking EASY answers.

Obviously, it has an unimpressive CPU, grainy screen, and only 1 GB of RAM.
