Przemyslaw, Bristol Business or web user

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
good camera with modes
4G
Big screen with high resolution
Battery seems to hold much longer than my old phone - about 30-40% longer
Quite intuitive (but low personalisation level, and settings menu quite pain to figure out at the beginning)
Bad points:
very light and plasticky, feels fragile (but thats personal opinion)

too many default installed apps, and no ability to remove them

lack of super energy save mode (as in for ex. huawei phones)

lack of self diagnosing / cleaning / AV app

Performance of CPU is a disaster...

kills apps like messenger, during writing or won't open them after receiving message. Kills Facebook, kills chrome...
Very often it lags, when using communication apps. Forget calling or video-chat, forget sending any files in bulk
Seems like its overwhelming for the phone and too difficult to cope with. Didn't experience these issues when using my old 1GB phone, and it was cheap, chinese brand.
And don't get me wrong here, I'm not a big fan of apps, i have only messenger and whatssapp installed. I turned off all widgets, keep open only one app when using -still happening, and this shouldnt be happening with a smartphone with these parameters...

Unfortunately its getting worse and worse.. Need to get to the shop and get my money back :(

Manufacturer's Description

ZenFone5 has combined the best of the smartphone experience with powerful performance that will improve every aspect of your life.

Simple, Peaceful , Beautiful, this is what ZenFone 5 designed to be.

ZenFone 5’s Intel® processor can easily handle multiple tasks and deliver an immersive gaming experience.

ZenFone’s PowerVR SGX 544 MP2 GPU packs a serious punch – both in games and during general use. The all-new ASUS ZenUI is buttery smooth, high definition films are stutter free and games are incredibly smooth and immersive, delivering an uncompromising mobile experience.

There’s conventional smartphone memory and then there’s ZenFone 5’s 64-bit memory. It races along at twice the speed of the 32-bit memory that holds back many competing models, so everything works faster — much faster.

ZenFone 5 features two SIM card slots in one device, allowing you to use a single device for your personal and work needs. ZenFone 5’s advanced antenna design provides fantastic performance even in areas with poor signal – such as on the metro or in a tunnel. It also has been tuned to reduce power consumption when searching for a signal, resulting in a noticeable increase in standby time.

With support for network speeds up to 42Mbps DC-HSPA+ and dual carrier, you can effortlessly stream HD video, browse the web or work while you’re out and about.

We know your ZenFone 5 will go everywhere with you, so we’ve built in quad-band technology to connect you to high-quality voice and high-speed data networks across all four corners of the globe.

With a low-power Intel® Atom™ processor and power-efficient antenna design, ZenFone 5 combines class-leading performance with long battery life.

ZenFone 5 is equipped with a high resolution 1280 × 800 HD IPS+ display, sporting a pixel density of 294ppi for an impressive visual appearance. ASUS TruVivid technology with improved clarity, lighter and beautiful vivid color.

Our exclusive lamination technology reduces the thickness of the touch sensor resulting in a display that’s lighter, brighter and more vivid — ZenFone 5 is alive with color and clarity!

ZenFone 5’s display applies Corning® Native Damage Resistance™ technology to enhance surface densification and decrease chances of lateral cracking.
Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 improves native scratch resistance up to 4x, compared to standard Al-Si Glass and 10x compared to Na-Si Glass.

ZenFone 5’s super-sensitive display responds to your touch in just 60 milliseconds, so every tap, swipe and gesture is registered instantly. If you think you know touch, touch again with ZenFone 5.
