    "The ASUS Zenfone 5 boasts a lovely UI and some great features, apart from decent hardware specs"The Zenfone series marks a fresh attempt from ASUS to make its mark in the burgeoning smartphone sector in India. Whether it will be successful or not is something that only time will tell, but we've spent some quality time with the Zenfone 5 ourselves.

    Overall: I have been looking up for 8 GB version since last 20 days and its still unavailable while 16 GB is available all the time. I guess its just a strategy to sell 16 GB version more because both the phone have same features except of memory at the cost diffrence of 3000 bucks.nIt is very much Disappointing.Such a big customer oriented company you should not act up on like this.You are creating big advertisements this fone is blaa blaaaa blaa and at end of the time availability is nill.What is this ? You are giving a wrong message to the customers.If the stock is not there up to the market needs you should not give the advertisement,people will select some other brand and let them relax.This is like gambling.why some fones are selling @ premium rates?One of my friend got 8gb phone yesterday night.You people are cheating us.Ur strategy everybody knows.Even i tried ur cc yesterday night but no use ,Keep on giving the message that ur in a que or ur call is more important to us so please be on line .How long we can wait for the silly thing.Not only that in SO be straight and honest in terms of Advertisements.

    Overall: Dear Friends,nnRecommended Only for persons who can handle it with CARE. Here is my story.. nnThe Mobile worked satisfactorily as per the specifications except the Battery Life but I am more concerned with the Gorilla Glass. I just dropped the mobile from a height of about 3 feet and when I picked up my phone, I was shocked to see my glass broken on the first fall itself. nnShocked as I was a Samsung user and have dropped my Old phone a multiple times without causing any damage to it.nnBiggest Shock was when I called the Asus Service Center mentioned in the ASUS website to find out that the replacement would cost me an approximate of Rs. 4500. nnI bought this phone for 10,000 and the glass replacement cost is 4500.
