Hey Tomaz, I got my zenfone yesterday. I was using htc wildfire before.
I found the zenfone unreliable compared to my old htc.
Here are the list of problems that i faced -
1. When I switch on the wifi, it detects the modem but it doesnt connect. It keeps on displaying 'connecting'.
2. In my htc, with the same sim and net pack, my net is pretty fast, but whn i put the sim in zenfone, its extremely so... 90% of the times it doesnt load the web page and if it does, its very slow.
3.My camera quality seems to be poor...i can easily see the green dots even when the pic is snapped in lighted areas.
4. in 53 mins, my battery drained to 78% from 100.
5. The incoming call quality is bad. The person on the other end sounds like is he/she is present inside a hollow room while talking.
6. Ringer volume is low.
feels like I dumped 10k rupees in drain.
Is this a faulty device? Should I go for an exchange with some other device?
Recovery update who has problem update thru ota because rooting
Download the Update-Recovery.bat and the corresponding __recovery.img file, put Update-Recovery.bat' inside the RootZenFoneKitKat folder and replace the recovery.img` in files folder with the one you've downloaded.
Rename it with the one you've downloaded. file to recovery.img
Execute Update-Recovery.bat to flash stock recovery for your ZenFone and apply OTA update again, should fix the OTA problem.
lee46, 12 Nov 2014Hey tomazz when I bought my zenfone it had 1.14 firmware version then I manually updated it to... moreI've placed them on my server as well, you can get them from http://www.mega-networks.asia/ZenFone
There's a Firmware folder.
I stopped posting with 2.19 + fixes, because 2.20 was beta, and for the now released 2.20 OTA, it is yet another release that had less than a week of beta testing, on a plan of 2-3 weeks, so I want to test it out first before placing it in the server.
Although I've made a few exceptions, normally I only place full firmware files there.
So 2.20 will also be full firmware when posted, not a 100-450 MB FOTA file.
As for you, get 22.214.171.124 and install it. Then get 2.19 and install it, then do OTA to 2.20.
That's the instructions if you're doing it right now.
Same here, There's a 'invalid mmi code' showing everytime I'm using USSD to check for my load balance (using sim1). I already installed the new update that Asus provided and my phone is now running on WW_user_126.96.36.199, but even after updating... the keyboard and USSD code issues are still here.
Any suggestions on how to fix the USSD code issue?

Used the phone. Bit upset with the incoming voice quality and WiFi not connecting (though it can detect signals). I haven't checked the other things yet.
Anybody had these problems? Especially the incoming call quality...
Are these hardware problems or can these be fixed through software updates?
Battery backup too is a problem..
Can I get some help?
