It seems a small group of ASUS PadFone 2 users are experiencing issues with their device, where the phone shuts down and refuses to switch on anymore.

This issue is mostly being observed by those who purchased their PadFone 2 from Taiwan, although users in Singapore seem to be facing this issue as well.
