Anonymous, 27 Sep 2014Which is better ?
this one (16 GB)
or moto g (16 GB)If new Moto G, they are more or less identical.
Biggest difference between them is the OS. Zen comes with ZenUI based on JellyBean (ok, next week on KitKat), while Motorola comes with stock KitKat with default Google launcher.
Some people like clean stock OS, because it's uncluttered with added functions, and receives updates immediately, others hate it because it's far less user friendly.
I don't think the choice can be on hardware. It's mostly a choice of which software you like. And there is no good or bad, just your preference.

Take off the back plate.
Remove the screws (one has warranty sticker), and remove the plastic shell.
There are only a handful more screws inside and the rest is all modules plugged into each other. I consider it a Lego.
This was the point of Zen - making it all in standard parts, that can be produced en masse, and make it very simple to put together - that's what also makes it larger than other phones.
I did take it apart, didn't really like to put it back together (I'm one of those who always end up with a few spare parts), but - it is considerably easier to fix than any other mobile I've pulled apart before.

Here are the findings: - when ... moreThanks Tomazz, actually when i am locking the zenfone when fm radio playing in foreground after that the volume down is not working properly. Actually i mailed asus & they are very quickly responded to reset my zenfone. If it's not working then to come to their service center. But i am reluctant to make it serviced. Please clarify one thing i have heard that this mobiles are so complexly coupled that if we service them there is a high chance that some other problems may arise. Please suggest what can be done. Thank u & other friends again .
a t, 27 Sep 2014weather i should buy asus 5 or moto g2....which one is better tell me pls.....in terms of came... moreOld G2 has crappier screen (SD vs HD resolution), and much lower specs on hardware, such as camera, working memory, CPU - but considerably longer battery life.
The new G2 is more or less identical to Zenfone 5 - both in terms of size, screen, camera, performance - and battery life.
Zenfone has advantage in better camera modes and a much neater user interface.
Old G2 has advantage in newer OS and longer battery life.
New G2 has advantage in newer OS.
"Advantage" of this OS is only for those who like stock Android. If that was so great, there would not be that many other launchers out there.
goodking, 27 Sep 2014'Line' cannot work properly on asus5. It cannot send any video or audio call to others, hope ... moreI use Line all the time but went to recheck anyway. Using 4.6.1 version of Line on full 1.18.40 firmware (meaning it's not OTA updated but full firmware loaded manually).
Anyway - I can send and receive videos, photos, and other files. Video and voice only calls work. To computer and to another mobile phone.
I tried Take photo and Take video, and both work without issues. Videos were 30 seconds in length.
So this is not an issue with Line or phone. But it is possible that you have some update in between OTA updates missing, or the apps not updated. All my apps are updated to last version.
Now an interesting thing that I've just found out, and I don't know whether anyone else has the same issue…
I was sending things between ZF5 and Find7. And…
ZenFone 5, in CNN app, does not load video, just states that it's not available, while the same version of app loads the video on Oppo.
However - in WhatsApp, when trying to send a video clip on Oppo, camera opens, but when selecting record, it crashes. No such issue on Zenfone.
Just checking this on Samsung and Sony now… Both Note 3 and Z2 can display video in CNN app. As for WhatsApp… Z2 has the same problem. And Samsung is annoying me with the contacts and refuses to start, so I'll test it some other time.
Interesting stuff… Anyone else using CNN app?
weather i should buy asus 5 or moto g2....which one is better tell me pls.....in terms of camera and speed and aoerall
'Line' cannot work properly on asus5. It cannot send any video or audio call to others, hope asus can fix it.
CyborGbty, 27 Sep 2014Asus Zenfone 5 A501CG and A500KL. What is different between this two? Also What is the price f... moreA501CG is 3G version with dual SIM card and Intel Atom CPU.
A500KL is 4G LTE version with single SIM card and Snapdragon CPU.
Other than that they are mostly identical.
The LTE version costs 30-40% more than 3G version.
Both devices support printing when you have HP/Canon/Samsung (and probably other) drivers loaded. I print to HP MFP directly often. Printer is on LAN, phone on Wifi that connects to same network.
Obviously both come with an internet browser, and can load Firefox, Chrome,…
For remote connection to my computers I generally use Teamviewer. Used it since iPad version came out. I also have a few other ones installed, like LogMeIn and such, but I always found TeamViewer the most reliable.
The other way around, where you can control phone with computer, is available through PC Link software, which comes preinstalled on the phone but you need to download the computer portion.
I don't know if this is sufficient for you.
Asus Zenfone 5 A501CG and A500KL. What is different between this two? Also What is the price for this two? I’m confusing coz Flipkart has just increase its price I think. Asus Zenfone 5 A501CG Rs. 10490. I remember the last price I show, it was Rs. 9999
Which one is best? I mean I'm new in smart phone. My last phone was an Japanese Vitto V71 with too must facility
