For my purpose the battery is around 5 % in the evening around 5. Normally the phone is fully charged around 9.30 am.
Usage mainly Calling, surfing & 15-20 mins of candy crush ;)

Still not examined properly but I felt redmi 1s was slightly better even if it heated up a lot.
Thanks sandy,
Just another question. Is the ring tone loud enough to be heard on Indian roads if the phone is kept in pocket? I have read somewhere on net that if you keep the GPS off then it will improve battery life.

On roads its bit better to redmi 1s for me at least I can feel something in my pocket almost at the end.
I missed a lot of calls in Redmi while travelling may be at that point I was too much involved with my music [PMP & IEM on].

Pointer : Mumbai Local & Traffic, lots of noise & crowded always even after 10 pm.

Keep the vibration on all the time, you won't miss any calls then. :)

and yes, turn wifi, bluetooth, gps, sync, mobile data off if they aren't required. That will save battery.

Vibration adversely affects battery life and sometimes irritates too. While riding a bike and if the phone is in the jeans pocket it is possible to miss a call unless the vibration is too strong. Whatever phone you buy it is always possible to miss calls in such conditions.

Yeah I googled "low volume ringtone" in Asus zenfone 5. Lots of complaints.

During my motorcycle trips I used a high frequency ringtone sounding like a whistle tune. But that was also a Nokia which had good speakers compared to the smartphones of these days.

Only such high frequency noise is noticed in such situations.

I want to ask two questions to all Zenfone owners .Based on the answers, I will buy Zenfone 5

1. I have read and experienced speaker has very low volume. There is a hack mentioned in XDA forums to increase loudspeaker volume. Does that hack really work ? or any other hack ?

2. I heard Zenfone 5 has a low battery problem. Does it last 12 hrs at least with low usage like 1/2 hr gaming, 15 mins talk

TIA
Sumit

1. There is an Android App called Volume Boost through which you can boost your low volume.
2. Zenfone 5 battery lasts for 18 hours inspite of 30 mins of gaming/talk. I am using it right now & its very good.
3. Without any gaming its battery lasts 30 hours with 30 mins of talk.

Currently using mi3 Flipkart model. As a phone its 99.99999 % perfect. Very stable. It seems that your model is imported via unauthorized channel. Ask seller that you want to try the phone for one day Pay 50% get it then confirm if there is any compatibility issue with Indian service providers.

Root your phone, install greenify and hibernate all user apps using it.
