  • Im been using this phone for almost 2 years+ now and i must say this is the most BRUTAL phone ive ever used since Nokia 3310. 10x+ drop on the tar road, 5x on my home tiles but still capable to functioning very well. But now it seem to have some problem especially with auto-restart and hang on full memory usage. Maybe, it is time to buy the new one but still using zenfone 5 lite as a secondary phone. LOVE IT!!

  • Purchase it last wk in lazada but unfornately it keeps on hanging.. Can u help me solve this.

  • Mine worked fine... I purchase this model as soon as it was launched in 2014 and till today its still working fine.. drop the phone more than 5 times and throw to wall as well but still working only screen cracks... best smart phone I ever had.. cheers Asus

  • The new update for it can't download...but the old one can...I format my phone recently and the wechat can be download from Google or the wechat website...

  • Im using Asus Zenfone 5 Lite and why the device can't download the new version of wechat. I can't use wechat properly

  • i'm using zenphone 5 asus lite, i have a question. how the network becomes H+ because my signal rigth now is E. and all my apps can't function like facebook I can't open it even i'm using wifi. Please help me to fix it.

  • I found WeChat and Pokemon Go not supported on this phone but the APK does fine. So much framerate drop while playing Pokemon Go.

  • Nice phone I am using this phone about one and half years no problem

  • im using this phone.., to many problems..!! after a week i bought it., hanged!! i cant use it..!! wechat cant be install.. 2nd camera blur..

  • It worked bro thanks for that, but after i reboot the phone the it came again please suggest what to do.

  • really worse phone ever... 2 day search for solution to connect to pc... still fail... oh my... other android phone just plug usb & on mtp... but this phone still have usb error... what a fail phone...

  • It's a great phone. I have been using this phone for almost 6 months and I experienced no problem. There is not much of a lag or any other issues in the phone. The problem is the front camera. As it is it is only 0.3mp.but the rear cam is great to take pics. I suggest this to everyone.

  • U can go for xiaomi redmi note 3 or xiaomi redmi note 3 pro

  • I thought asus will also give a lollipop version to this kind of model that is why I'm waiting but it seems they are not going to do it

  • ASUS is not working in updating this kind of model to Lollipop. ASUS has a really BAD service. sucks! i was always sending a feedback about my experience with this device but they are replying with some links and survey.

  • I am buying a new phone. Can anyone please suggest me a good memory with a good back camera phone below RM750

  • How to update my Asus zenfone 5 lite A502cg...?

  • I don't know if I'm the only one who have problems about recording Videos / Sounds~ Can someone please answer me~ Why It automatically closes everytime I'm recording a video and in sound recording it doesn't save? Then I also would like to inform you all about the messenger and fb app it automatically closes while I'm using it (Don't know if the problem is with the app or the phone)~ then about the battery, it drains quickly even if I'm not using it~ Sorry for having too many questions / issues~ I just want to clear everything~ Thank you for understanding and for answering (in advance)

  • why my phone camera is not clear and not good quality?

  • my phone has no sound.what should i do?

  • it was released at the end of 2014 (only like a year ago, still kinda new model if you ask me), so i expect the quality of the front camera to be at least 1MP. it only got VGA, and to be honest, it sucks. So to those who like to take selfies, you might wanna consider buying another phone. oh, and after updating, the phone cannot support wechat. tumblr and weheartit are fine, though. I don't really have a problem with the battery life, when fully charge it can last for a whole day (unless you're streaming videos on YouTube of course) the UI is just nice, the design is cool, it is not laggy, (well not when i use it, i don't know about others) the primary camera is good, which make up for the sh*tty front camera. so i guess for the price, this phone is quite ok.

  • i had a same issues.After updates this phone gone crazy!cant open any apps..even contact.This phone is totally piece of crap after updates!!

  • i have purchased on dec-14 there is problem with camera not respoinding and battery drained out frequently

  • I need Android 5.1 ....

  • Why other apps can't play ! Especially FB,WECHAT and etc. "Unfortunately, Facebook has stopped" ! I regret i buy this kind of phone!

  • Also happen to u ?

  • Can anyone tell me why this z5 cannot install wechat ?? hurm

  • why not supporting wechat after upgrading ? :-(

  • Honest opinion... open talking I'm really regret for having this phone. really sucks in all terms especially when it comes to battery-hell drained without usage. I personally would advice don't look for it seriously. camera-huh... not at all

  • Why my asus zenfone 5 lite draining so fast and even when im not using it.

  • Can it connect to hdtv adapter ? If would i want to buy it because it reasonable price .

  • Look wise its a goodlooking phone but battery is the biggest issue in this phone. I am feeling cheated by taking this phone as this problm occurred from the first day. I m jst using whtsapp nd fb. Nd hv not downloaded any game however i hv to charge this phone thrice in a day. Pathetic device made by intel.

  • I am using this phone Asus Zenfone 5 Lite A502CG from last 7 months, just would like to suggest people to not buy this because battery consumption is very high thats why the device became pathetic.

  • Can it be used for playing CoC? Any heating problems? To whT degree? tolerable?

  • Can it be used for playing CoC? Any heating problems? To whT degree? tolerable?

  • Thanks for advising not to buy Asus zenfone 5

  • what are those lines at the bottom part of the screen???please fix it...I noticed those lines after the last update..... :(

  • Extreamly laggy. Just dont buy!

  • the good thing is the phone wont become laggy at all! and the bad thing is the phone becomes hot and the battery drains faster when I play online games :(

  • why is that my internal storage of my asus zenfone 5 lite from 8gb it becomes 4gb where i ddn't already use it? it display like this..4gb/8gb..instead it should be 8gb/8gb when i ddn't started to install an app?

  • if want to purchase this phone then you need to make friendship with charge cause this phone take charge like free water. Even thing this phone doesn't have FOTA update but if update manually kitkat to lolipop then it start showing lot's of problem so my suggestion will be don't purchase this phone.

  • If i know the battery draining like water..i rather buy lenovo from using this zenfone Sigh ~ -,-"

  • We have the same issue on my Asus Zenfone 5 Lite. So dissapponted,used it for only 7 mos.

  • asus please fix the battery problem in your asus phones...battery drain super fast.

  • I rather buy lenovo a5000 at this price range bcoz this phone become hanging while u play some games after i updated the zen ui launcher.. consuming too much ram and never handles it well.. so never update any zen ui app bcoz your phone become slow down and use too much ram.. battery life was average i would say bcos it can last for 5 hours of internet usage but not for gaming.. just open for 10 minutes playing games and its turn down about 5-7% of battery usage.. planning too buy lenovo a5000 soon bcoz the battery backup and have an good speed processor than this one..

  • Hmm..why my zen5 lite the volume button up the button of shut down button ?? Im so curious right now

  • turns lag when i open the gallery damn it

  • I am using it for last 3 months and I am really disappointed with this phone it is to laggy , even if you are typing then the words appear somewhat later. Earlier my plan was to buy zenfone 2 but after using zenfone 5, I thought i'll wait for xiaomi mi 5.

  • Can we get android 5.0 lolipop in my asus zenfone 5 lite A502CG ?

  • Asus 5 lite was released in Nov 2014 then how "you can use it for last one year" Please do not give irrelevant feedback as many of people check this websites for checking the response of current users.

  • My asus phone zenfone 5 lite getting lowbatt (shutdown) at zero percent battery even it is in 50 or 60 percent. it is getting shutdown. when i charge it, i cannot reach 100percent only at 99 percent. what should i do? the store that i buy it said, the solution is to reset all data on my phone. it is good?

  • Troll. This phone was released last November. How on earth do you used this for a year?

  • I've got the same problem

  • Same problem here

  • I've been using Zenfone 5 lite for a year now and I noticed some few thin black lines appearing on the lower part of the screen. Restarting my phone works on eliminating the lines but after some time, it appears again. What maybe the problem?

  • need lollipop but how

  • Are the front camera with vga resolution as bad as it sound? That is practically too low to take any good picture or videocall. I expect at least 2mp instead of the 0.3mp cam.

  • why asus has no after sales support on this product???

  • May I ask whats the model number for this phone:?????

  • it says 8GB internal but actually you can only use 4GB since the 4GB was for the phone's apps and settings already

  • Battery temperature increases up to 4d degree Celsius its normal

  • when I press the power button immediately, then after 1 min.I press again the power button, then its not working. What will I do??

  • Guys. What is the internal storage? I only saw on specs is 1gb. RAM..

  • Zenfone 5 502cg lollipop version how can update please tell me. Zenfone 4,5 Lollipop updated but this phone no update please update Asus Zenfone.

  • Asus zenfone 502cg please update lollipop version please reply me

  • super mobile than other

  • backup your phone and reset may be it works. For my friend it worked !

  • How to put silent mode in asus zenfone 5..please tell

  • the speaker of my phone is not working, is there anybody knows how to fix it? or where to fix it? except in their service center :'( i need help

  • Hello! I'm facing that problem right now, i bought this phone april 8 but after 10 days the speaker is not working. Did you do repair? I need some tips on how to fix it :(

  • I bought this phone last week I think my phone battery darin very fast... when I watch youtube 10mins the battery is decreased by 5% and on stand by 8hrs decrease 15% battery when playing the game my device getting very hot (battery mix record 40c above)is it normal?

  • Guys, you can use app Repair battery life on store. Download app, install and run app, then restar your phone. Tada! It's done :) . My zenfone battery now is ok.

  • Yeah got the same problem here.. I plugged it in and left ig for 2 hrs and still under 35%, and the battery now drains very fast. I haven't got the chance to do factory reset yet because I don't want to lose all of my pictures and files on the phone.

  • Maybe you should check your brightness. Cause it consume a lot on my battery

  • Good in all working but mainly problem with battery backup. backup is not so good and very bad when connected with wi-fi or internet. i think less than only 12 hours when using internet.

  • Facebook app is not working in my phone

  • The message adds or sends text messages sent back then. Like if I send my friend sends me a message, it sends a different one from our past conversation or adds a part of my friends past message to me in the present message she sends . Is that natural? Because it really creeps me out. It happened 2 times already.

  • Does this phone fast internet speed? Thanks

  • I am having this phone the battery life is worst

  • Yes its support chocobar

  • may be charger or unit having some hardware issue, if it happens with oem charger too then go to service center

  • not yet may be in april end

  • I have a unique problem. this the 2nd time i encountered it. when i connect my charger it doesnt get charged after a day or few hours when i connect it starts charging. what do i do

  • I want to know can I play big games like fifa 15 , injustice , immortals , etc..

  • is it upgradable to lollipop?

  • may be hardware defect if starts from asus logo on startup

  • It's difficult 2 get it's cover

  • Charging the battery usually it takes about 3 hours.The new Zen phone 2 is much shorter.

  • Typo sorry meant if wi fi is not used a lot.

  • Battery is good for one day if the wi fi is used a lot.

  • Hi is this phone good for gaming and how long is the batery life.. Planing to buy thanks!

  • hi, i have this phone and i bought this last january, but now the speaker is not working. is there anyone that is also facing this problem ? who knows to fix this ? *sorry for my bad english

  • thank u po :)

  • how about the video ? tnx.

  • it appears even from the starting of power on? if yes then may be hardware issue

  • Its very good budgeted phone with all configurations.. but sometimes having problem like.not able to do conference call some of all ok

  • My friend had the same issue. He contacted flipkart customer care and they have assured him a replacement. Hope the new one doesnt have the same problem. Actually if you look at the battery stats, android os will consume the max. But for other phones it will be the least. The process keeps the system awake even when the phone is idle thus draining out the charge. Hope the new one doesnt have the issue. My opinion will be you better contact flipkart.

  • Why do we see comments like "i think the is good" if have or used phone only then pass comment.

  • Better go for Grand Prime! Built quality much better!

  • Why is there a white in the middle of the screen???

  • Mine lasts for only 2-3 hours when I'm using wifi or internet browser. Is this normal? Why is this so? I have so many questions about this. Please answer me.

  • no native video calling feature available in Zenfone, you need to use third party apps like skype, tango etc

  • in wifi mode while i see online video it works for 3-3.5 hours

  • Why zenfone 5 cannot video call..please tell mee

  • woops sorry. wrong answer..hehe. yes its normal dude. 2 - 2,5 hours from 5% to 100%..

  • 2 hours? there is must be something wrong with ur zenfone man... mine can rollin for at least 9 hours with normal.usage. non gaming of course..must massive email traffic..

  • How long do you take charge on your battery? My zenfone 5 lite last long about 2 hours is this normal??

  • depends on your usage, on 3g video last for 3.5-4 hours, normal calling will last for day

  • this is very good budget fone with good configuration, you will like it fore sure, you may see unboxing video on youtube

  • approx 3.5-4 hours

  • if its just week old you can ask for replacement as per company policy

  • micro sim

  • how do you turn off the notification vibration on this phone? its not on the sound settings. it vibrates everytime i have a notification. the only vibration you can modify is for the incoming texts and calls.. nothing about notifications.

  • see the price to :/

  • It was very responsive..amazing budgeted phone..

  • oh i really need to know if anybody here noticed the sensitivity of the screen. it is not that responsive if you didn't press or lay your finger properly. anyone here experience the same thing?

  • both micro sim GSM/GSM

  • That fake zenfone

  • Goto setting >> storage >> find USB picture >> u will find the way

  • Dual places of Micro sims..

  • Can i ask if the front camera is good to shot photos? Is this clear?

  • If you want cdma+gsm with advanced features better go for HTC one E8,m8sd variant.good phone with all features

  • I have the 8gb Zenfone 5, and have done for a few months. It's a great phone to be honest. It's quick and responsive, I haven't had any problems with it so far. I've compared it with others in the same price range, such as the Moto G, and I much prefer the Zenfone. If I had to make a criticism, it would be that the buttons a the bottom are not back-lit. Rarely a problem though! Oh, and the specifications on this do not exactly match my phone specifications, I think they might be for the 3G version rather than the LTE. The Intel chipset doesn't support LTE. Mine has a Snapdragon chipset. Hope this helps. ThePope

  • The time 3 hours or 2

  • Micro

  • have u check with latest camera app version+resetting camera app setting?

  • Hey guys, this phone impress me a lot not only on its price but also on its specs. In fact i am planning to buy one only there is something that holds me back. Base on its specs, zenfone 5 lite has only a soda lime glass with oleophobic coating (which is scratch and smudge resistance). Im not familiar with that kind of "glass thing" but out of curiosity, tried some research and i found out that compare to corning gorilla glass, it is vulnerable i think. Will it crack so easily if u drop it by accident? I hope someone will answer it coz im having second thoughts of buying it. Thanks a lot!!!!

  • I bought this fone last FridaY,, no hanged apps but no gorilla glass,its just a soda lime glass.pssh., all is fine except the cHarging mode,verY slow,it takes a wHole day but in overall perFormance is good:))

  • Hello Lee! Well, this information is INCOMPLETE. My sister has that phone and it's awesome! Its specs are almost the same with iPhone. The phone captures great photos. The processor is Intel. You can connect the phone to the computer and you control the computer with that phone. It may look stupid because of the price. Yeah, it's cheap but you can feel like having an iPhone. :)

  • hi!! you must reset your phone to make it back in the old version you want.

  • ..i do not like the new system update. how can i restore the original system?

  • I think i finally figured out a fix for the '' systemui has stopped working'' error when you press the recent apps button. Just go to settings>lock screen>turn off quick access (launch apps on lock screen). Im still not sure though,its still a 1 day since i tried it but no errors ever since. Thats a good sign for me since i used to average 2-3 errors per day. :)

  • Just bought this phone earlier today, for the equaivalent of PHP5675.55 (RM450.00) Looks - 10/10 Feel - 10/10 UI - 9/10 Internet via plan - 10/10 Wifi - 8/10 Calls - 8/10 Overall packaging of product is great. Charger, USB cable and earphones are of excellent quality. I bought this phone after my old Samsung Note 2 finally died on me. Was looking for an alternative replacement and dare I say it? The Asus Zenfone 5 Lite is actually a step up. Cheaper and is better than the Note 2 (mine anyway).Only worry is the calls tend to drop (my area coverage probably). I highly recommend it for anyone on a budget and who wants a class smartphone without the class price.

  • its graphic processing unit which controls graphics

  • setting-->about-->system update-->check update

  • yes it is but just with latest FOTA update

  • rooting may damage your hardware as well as warranty of device. nice phone with nice user interface don't root it

  • keep the power saving mode (disable nw when phone is in sleep mode) and also disable /uninstall unwanted apps as most of the apps are running in background and drains battery

  • both sim slot is gsm

  • run factory reset and try again also check for fota and app update if any

  • its a good phone but one thing i dont like in this phone is the front camera because its too low quality.. Some suggestions on how to improve the battery life?

  • Please file link ??

  • in my playstore it cant install apps and games even if all is already set? what might be the problem? pls help

  • does it work with cdma sim

  • just bought one today at far been liking it what with its budget price?

  • To root please download root zenfone

  • Is this is a cdma+gsm phone or only a gsm phone?

  • Very good phone overall. Design 10/10 Interface 8/10 Asus Updates 10/10 Sistem optimization 10/10 GPS 10/10 Internet and data 10/10 Camera 8/10 Display 8/10 Batery 5/10 (weak) Works great, looks great, feels great. If the battery will hold more, this phone would be perfect.

  • why my phone cannot open waze....this phone have gps or not

  • im also facing that problem but it doesnt annoy me much. In fact, I love my asus ZF5 lite. Good performance, the UI, Average Camera, the Battery is also good. If I rate it 1-10, it's 9/10 for me. Guys, if you are in budget..I suggest this phone badly. .:))

  • I bought it 3 days ago... I got earphone, USB Cable and Adapter... Zenfone 5 Lite A502CG

  • Please help very important How to root Zenfone 5 Lite A502CG ? :(

  • Please help very important How to root Zenfone 5 Lite A502CG ? :(

  • I just bought my phone 4 days ago and since then, when i press the recent apps button, i sometimes get a sytemui has stopped working error. I read below that it will be gone after a month but is it really true? Is there a fix for this? Its very annoying.

  • That's the difference with the Lite version. But for me, it's not a big deal as I have a good quality earphones that I have been using for months now. Maybe it's Asus' way of keeping the price down. The default package is the phone unit, charger, usb cable. Even without the earphones, it's really worth it.

  • Bought mine last December 22, 2014. I would say it's the best phone in the same price range. I have canvassed most of the local malls near my place and researched thoroughly, compared every brand, phone model, specs, price. I could conclude that Zenfone 5 Lite is the best phone in the same price range.

  • setting-->About-->System update-->check update.

  • YEAH! hahhhaha! fearing you might run out of battery before CoC disconnects you from playing too long ei? lol!

  • For Php5595? For me, this is the most affordable phone with high end performance. The camera is solid 8 mp. You can see the difference. VGA is not the big deal at all, you can edit your pictures with so many applications out there. The screen resolution is soo good. The battery life is nice, but drains a little bit fast if you are gaming. If you are in a tight budget, this is the best deal out there. So i'll give Asus Zenfone 5 lite a 8/10 points. PROS: gives a quality camera, battery life, smooth performance, crisp screen resolution, good for games. CONS: VGA front Camera, Smaller ROM and RAM compared to zenfone 5,

  • Is it OTG capable?

  • How to ROOT ? please help

  • 8gb only internal

  • I bought one last night and it doesn't come with an earphone and comes with Jellybean not kitkat. How do i update to kitkat?

  • 8 gig

  • 8 gb.

  • How big is the internal memory? it doesn't say in the specs

  • Precisely it has no headset included... I was also shocked at first and i came back to the store where i bought it to check whether the headset was loss.. the store opened another unit and unboxed it and unfortunately it is confirmed that no headset included in the box...:( Just a sad thing to hear... ASUS could you confirm this?

  • In my opinion ... pay a little more and get Zenfone 5 ; it's better than the light version in processor , screen and RAM ... Good luck mate :)

  • I bought this phone just today and it doensn't have a it true that the headset does not included in the package?

  • GPU is stated in this site, it is embedded on the CPU which is Intel Atom Z2520 or we can just say integrated. Please click the link below for more information on the GPU. (

  • I purchase this incredible smartphone yesterday and for me its a two thumbs up. PROS: 1.Better Battery Capacity than the Zenfone 5(A501CG) 2. Good Picture Quality 3. Good UI -> Zen UI 4. Good Processing Performance 5. Dual Sim Capability 6. Touch Display Very Responsive 7. Good Design/Durability 8. Intel Dual Core Processor with (4 Threads)/QuadCore CONS: 1. Front Facing Camera VGA compared to 2MP 720P of Zenfone 5(A501CG) 2. RAM IS DEGRADED FROM 2GB TO 1GB 3. INTERNAL MEMORY ALSO DEGRADED FROM 16GB TO 8GB 4. DISPLAY DENSITY was reduce from ~294 ppi to ~220 ppi -> however it does not affect the performance. 5. Protection -> from Gorilla Glass 3 to Oleophobic coating. 6. GPU is unknown(however i will be doing some testing on what droid games the user can get into) Verdict: As i have dig in to all the specification of this two smartphones, its just an inch higher from the original zenfone 5, the good thing about the zenfone lite is now more people can buy a high performance smartphone with a more less and cheaper price with bump in the latest technology. i recommend this phone to people that is tight in their budget.

  • zenfone 5 and zenfone 5 lite don't have the same casing

  • anyone please help me how to root zenfone 5 lite thanks.

  • lite is a more practical buy!!!

  • Its normal i dont know why but its normal from the time when you bought it... after a month it would be fix....

  • which one do you recommend of buying? Asus Zenfone 5 Lite or Asus Zenfone 5? Thanks! Godbless you all!

  • Late reply dudes I already bought one and I have the casing punched at the back to clear the slot for the camera...but thanks anyway.

  • my wife and i bought it. asking me to find her a nice phone to use. i read the specs and features of this phone (ZENFONE 5 Lite) and it's quite reasonable for it's price. 1G ROM 8G internal 4g usable. why not? and yep. the only cons are the VGA front cam. anyway i'm not going to use it but my wife. it's a good buy here in PH. Thanks ASUS

  • Zenfone 5 and zenfone 5 lite back cover are not the same. So if ur gonna buy casing,ask for the lite version case

  • how bout the battery does it last a day playing clash of clans? thanks

  • what about the camera? picture quality?

  • I wonder why my zenfone 5 doesn't fit with retailed casings for zenfone 5...and my power button is below the volume buttons...

  • restart your phone, and try to update the system.

  • nope.its just soda lime glass.anti fingerprint and smudge resistant

  • yes it run smoothly.

  • yes it does. It is smooth on my phone.

  • that's my problem too,it happens like twice a day, and sometimes it changes my wallpaper back to its default..tried restarting it and worked fine..not a big deal for me but i would be happier if there is a solution for this

  • my phone is having a problem that whenever i am pressing the right(recent apps) button, everything gets force closed and error "unfortunately stopped" can someone give me any suggestion about it??

  • @ zenponepave, yes they are off the same size when it comes to the screen. the mere difference is that when it comes to their specification. ^^

  • Anybody managed to get Nokia HERE maps running? I read on a blog that it does not work with zenfone.

  • Just bought the lite version....can the screen protector for zenphone 5 fit for zenphone 5 lite?

  • Zenfone 5 is also available here in ph

  • I wonder if this higher capacity 2500mAh battery fits the other Zenfone 5...

  • what is the GPU?

  • does zenfone 5 lite also has corning gorilla glass?

  • i bought zenfone5 lite today 8gb internal memory 1gb ram.

  • if i'm not mistaken, rom is 8gb and gpu is same with zen5

  • why theres no ROM and GPU?

  • Do not expect too much from battery life if you use your phone for games. Even iphones suffer short battery when playing games. For games, use tablets usually with bigger battery.

  • i bought this phone last week Games tested: dead trigger real racing 3 nba 2k14 Performance is OK considering its price

  • No internal memory (rom)? Plz reply me, im planing to buy zenfon 5 lite and the battery condition??

  • the gpu of zen5lite is the same with the zen5 so i think their performance for gaming would be the same, except that zen5 has higher pixel density than 5lite

  • mr. blitz, im also from philippines. did u actually purchase this phone? if u did, can i know if games like dead trigger and asphalt 8 are playable in this phone? please let me know..need ur help. i planning to purchase this phone. thanks in advance.

  • hey blitz the zenfone 5 A500KL is available here in the Philippines or just the lite version?

  • if i face any battary problem !!!!!!!!! as it non removable what shoud i do??????????????????

  • "Zenfone5" worst phone.... I was totally fed up with this mobile... First I got Battery problem, after few days camera clarity problem, den after some days mobile was getting heat while talking.... I asked for replacement and got it, but there was no improvement at all....

  • Great Move from ASUS! I was actually waiting for Zenfone 4.5 to arrive here in the Philippines, I'm glad Zenfone 5 Lite came instead! PROS:(compared to Zenfone 4) It costs just 1000 pesos more than Zenfone 4. It comes with Android KitKat out of the Box. Better Camera (8 megapixel) with LED Flash Bigger Battery! Even higher than the Batt of Zenfone5. Plus, ALL ZENFONEs will get a LOLLIPOP OS upgrade by April 2015! The only CON for me is the VGA front camera, but since I dont do video calls often, its not a deal breaker. Zenfone LITE is PERFECT for people who find the ZenFone 4 too small, but cannot afford ZenFone 5. Kudos ASUS :)

  • whats the issue of the battery of this jk? can u rate the battery from 1-5? please. .

  • The games you told are very much playable on this device.....the only thing that bothers me is regarding battery life

  • Jk, can u give me a detailed review regarding the battery performance ? Thnx in advance

  • can we play games like dead trigger and asphalt 8 in this phone? i need to know please. i want to buy this phone.

  • compared to Asus zenfone 4 A450cg, it has only good battery life and resolution. price is also 2000/- higher.

  • Does asus zenfone 5 support pdf files?

  • Is this phone has a good performance and a better battery life? im planning to buy this phone because my sister told me that this phone is great, much better than Lenovo A536.

  • 16 GB Internal memory

  • What is lite ?

  • What is lite? Is this phone better than zenfone 4 A450CG?

  • lol. . . redmi 1s is a CRAP phone dude. so many issues like frequent restarts, heating, ram problem, sluggish, apps frequently crashes. id rather go to asus ZF5 lite when it comes to performance than your b*******t redmi 1s. . :DDDD

  • internal memory is 8GB. . read this quick review..­e-a502cg/27873

  • maybe not yet confirmed, also the internal memory

  • Is this supposed to be rival for Moto E? Price is just 1k less than Asus 5 A501. I thought they will launch upgraded version of Asus 5 A501 with better battery and OS but all we are getting is this lite version.. :/

  • why this stupid specs? this is going to be super flop!

  • What is the radiation level is Asus Zen 5

  • If you can get hold of redmi 1s in the first place

  • I think Zenfone 5 LTE A500KL is WORST than Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon plus 2GB RAM.Built in storage 16GB.And of course its LTE (4g) with Cat4

  • I think Zenfone 5 LTE A500KL is better than this with Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon plus 2GB RAM.Built in storage 16GB.And of course its LTE (4g) with Cat4.

  • where is the gpu..?power vr..?

  • internal is 8gb

  • internal intorage is 8gb. good phone for a low budget.

  • it's 8GB internal storage

  • 2500mah battery will be wasted on these specs. It must be in A401CG version

  • I'm getting this phone

  • old chipset, are they falling on to samsung strategy to sell off stock boards, which aren't edgy enough with the current scene, and i dont think anyone will go with a vga cam as secondary nowadays.

  • without any internal memory how can we install apps to this phone!

  • no good, the ram only 1gb

  • as what i have stated on my first comment when this lite version was posted to be available on Philippines, I'd rather go w/ the redmi 1s internal memory, ram, processor, resolution, for thesame price.

  • they should add native video calling option

  • does it come to malaysia?

  • ohhhhh its a big issue no internal memory {rom} and front cemera is vga..............

  • This is a great phone but they shld have kept the 2 mp front camera. Hope they launch it in India before Christmas.
