I am not in favour of any specific brand. I want a smartphone with a good battery life. Look at Moto G 2nd Gen, its has good specification, but again its packed with just only 2070 mah battery. I was going to buy it soon as it was lauched, but when I saw they are using a 2070 mah battery for a 5" display, I gave up.
OEMs needs to make smarphones with a strong battery life.

guy2, 24 Nov 2014Yes, this phone is a crap too. Checkout lenovo s660 and p780! ;)What I dislike about Lenovo (and many other brands) is their lack of support for non-standard frequencies.

Yes, it is true that 900/2100 MHz is standard for 3G. But... here, for example, we have some telecoms on 900, some on 850, some on 1900, some on 2100...

There are not many phones that pack support for all the frequencies. And Lenovo is certainly not either. You have either 850/2100 or 900/2100 MHz option, which means it's hard to switch from one telecom to another.

Asus did exactly the same before, and actually still does with their PadFone series, but finally changed their mind on Zen series.

Wish Lenovo realised how many sales they are missing because of this. As for their phones themselves, cameras are a quite blurry on the edges, sound quality is good, build quality very good, and screen/performance actually very impressive. And quite unbelievable when looking at the price.

And here's the Eluga problem. Yes, it's cheap. Relatively. But it's coming to market at a time when Asus, Lenovo, Benq, and a bunch more of Chinese manufacturers already hit same market with similarly priced and spec'd competitors.

It'll be a tough sale.

Had they done it 6-12 months earlier, though...

Asus Zenphone 5 is a good device, I can't argue about it. But its BATTERY LIFE is horrible! Its the battery life than ruined this smartphone. Otherwise, its a solid phone for its *price range*.

Just because the screen is not 34857346534534 dpi doesn't mean battwery should be microscopic. CPU and data traffic drain the battery more than the screen

The screen resolution isn't top notch that's exactly why the battery capacity is not very high. Beside it meant to be budget friendly phone.

Asus zenfone 5 has the best low light camera for the price. Don't even compare this sh** to asus

So they didn't learn from their previous misstake, launching another joke of a phone with a battery like this. I'm not surprised, every single phone manufacturer acts as if it's governed by totally insane people. That's probably because that's the case
