    It's for my brother, since his S4 is dying. I'll be using until he gets back from college, so I'm making this thread to see if anyone wants to know anything about it (like how it stacks up to the OnePlus One, for example).

    • What CPU Temps are you getting when the phone is idle, and when playing demanding games like GTA:SA?
    • What's your Screen-On Time?
    • How do you think the build quality stacks up to the OnePlus One? Does it feel like cheap plastic?

    Sorry for the Q's. I promise I won't ask any more.

    I see there's an updated version with snapdragon cpu's announced today, a whole bunch in fact and it's gonna get confusing cause there is now like 5 or 6 zenfone 2 variants from 5" to 6" displays and in between.

    Battery life is uncertain, got it literally an hour ago

    Keep asking! I'll only have this for about a week or so.

    Any app to check?
    Battery life is uncertain, as I literally got it an hour ago.
    I like the curve (extremely nice to hold) but the plastic feels like... plastic. I like the back cover material of the OnePlus One more, but for usability, I'd have to give it to the Zenfone 2.

    Just put of curiosity, what country are you from and how much did you pay for the Zenfone?

    I know you've not had it long, but which do you prefer (first impressions based) - OPO or Zenfone 2?

    Thanks! Here's an app:

    There's a CPU temp overlay in the settings. :)

    USD$300

    Hard to say. Hardware wise, Zenfone 2. Software wise, OnePlus One.

    The curve is much better to hold in the hand, but the plastic feels pretty bad. Not terrible, just feels like plastic.

    There are some reviews saying that the screen is too dim and the camera is not that good.
    Can you compare those?

    Also about multitasking how many chrome tabs can it open before it starts reloading them when you switch between.

    Usually when i open a 7th tab and go back to the first tab it starts reloading the website.
    I usually use m.youtube.com for this test.
    And chrome eats up too much ram.

    Compared to my phone with 2gb of ram that thing should kill it ,i am just curious how many chrome tabs can it open at the maxxxx.

    There's something weird going on with your OPO of it scores that low, what ROM are you on? I usually see this phone score around 50k.

    Benchmarks don't matter anyway.

    uploaded some low light shots above
    brightness seems a little dimmer than the One, a bit warmer too

    15 tabs on m.youtube.com before it has to reload
