I would go for the moto g, I have the same dilemma with you. And I bought moto g. Moto g has official software support from Motorola, and an active XDA development section. Considering that Zenfone 5 has an Intel processor, the rom on zenfone 5 will be fewer. I've bought a Chinese phone without any good custom roms and that was painful to me.

App compatibility issues has been addressed by Asus using OTA updates. There has been a few ota updates since zenfone has been out in the market. I admire Asus for addressing issues quickly. anyways..

Ask yourself if you love playing around with roms and like to experience vanilla android on your device, if the answer is yes then go with Moto G. Don't expect any aosp roms for zenfone 5 anytime soon. But, I'd still get the zenfone 5. It's a matter of personal preference. Even if we advice you with so many things about the pros and cons of both devices, at the end of the day it is still your money. Just follow your heart. LOL.

Asus Zenfone 4.5
Asus has the Zenfone 4.5 or Zenfone 4 A450cg on pre-order from flipkart now. That thing matches moto g in size.

Asus has heating problems. And from developer's point of view Moto G is way better .
