That's assuming there's no problem in the software.

I didn't notice much if any difference between the phone with, and the other without this updated OS. However I have not seen release notes so I wasn't really looking for any differences...

AnonD-321571, 23 Oct 2014very well said Tomazz.....an excellent budget phone....but ... moreThis depends on a lot of things, mainly on the screen.

I would estimate the drain to 1% in 5-6 minutes on 3G in my configuration, with very strong signal and relatively dim screen (set to auto, slider to 50% but due to reflection on iMac's screen I need to keep the curtains closed to prevent headache).

  • AnonD-314847

Tried 2 different SIM cards in 2 different slots.

I am loving my Zenfone 5. I work online so I needed a phone that supports at least 3G (HSPA+). I am subscribed to 2 network providers for business continuity. And Zenfone 5 is that answer to the solution I need. Thank you ASUS.

  • AnonD-314939

Sorry disable gps not wifi,wrongly mentioned in my previous post

  • AnonD-314939

Dont know why are you people so excited about kitkat.Kitkat update was a huge problem and i got downgraded to jellybean by service centre.
I am using jellybean 4.3 with 1.18.9.40 version with full manual update and as before my phone is running superb excellent.i am very very impressed with zenfone 5,my battery lasts 6-7 hours after 3G use.
Check ur network signals,decrease ur brightness,clear all background apps ur battery will also be fine like mine,set location access only to network disable wifi.
I have 125 apps and games installed on my phone.

hi guys i purchased zenfone5 from flipkart 2-3 days back all the features are god other than battery......if you will charge the battery upto 100% and will not even use the phone for 5-7 hours it will consume the battery upto 30%-40% ........after every 1 hour you have to charge the phone....its really disgusting ......so i would suggest you not to purchase any Asus zenfone......
