my Asus Zenfone 6 upgrade to 4.4.2 with wifi, but why several times it restart it self?
subha, 10 Nov 2014I tried as you said to switch off mobile after fully charging it but same issue happened again... morethere is NO fix as this Phone seems unable to fully shash a fresh rom.
asus made a HUGE and terrible error there.
the problem is in the rom and cannot be fixed unless we get a full flash.
the current methods do a OTA flash which simply dont work as they dont replace ALL files.

Pls help.When I trying to install whatssapp,my Zen 6 is always Initializing?Waiting for more than 10 min ....Using Kit Kat 4.4.2.
great smartphone + powerful processor. playing games smoothly, a bit heating after a few hours playing games but maximum recorded only at 43celcius and that is normal. all app running very smooth, no delay.
Jasterax, 08 Nov 2014If anyone thinking to get this phone following are the reasons that you should or should not b... more-pixel density is fine... if you use the Phone normaly you can NOT see pixes and everything is sharp...
-the display is verry briht so no issue with sunlight her...
-kitkat is here so did you even try to update (downgrade) 4.3 is better!
-every Phone will get damage why is that a bad point if EVERY device has it? trouble finding bad points i see...
-heating does not affect battery life bad charge cycles do and there isnt a heating issue at all its normal and every Phone and tablet heats on high usage.
Jasterax, 08 Nov 2014If anyone thinking to get this phone following are the reasons that you should or should not b... moreNo heating, only if you play 3D games for longer, but SoC is in upper side if phone out of battery. Density is only bad on paper, in real the display is great with very good visibility on sunlight. And last, Gorrila X or Dragontrail, if your screen meet dust with sand, there is no protection, because this material is much ,,harder'' then glass fitted on your lovely phone...
If anyone thinking to get this phone following are the reasons that you should or should not buy this phone.
Should buy because.
2.Better Gaming Performance
3.Good For Recording Game Play.
4.Camera Is not bad at all.
5.Cheap in 6-inch display category(except panasonic p61)
Over All every options is available for any type of user.
Should Not buy because
1.Wide Display but pixel density is bad.
2.Annoying to see display in sunlight.
3.Android kitkat 4.4.4 not there.
4.Even with gorilla glass your screen may get damage.
5.Little bit heating problem which will affect on battery life after 6 months.
subha, 07 Nov 2014battery life is not good. getting drained very soon. For a day have to change twiceto you and EVERYONE with battery life issues.
if your Phone aprears to drain verry fast it might not actualy be draining at all.
Ive done extencive testen and my battery life is consistant but my graph is worthless.
i Always get more then 8 hours 15 min screen on time and over 3 days use on a charge.
However sometimes it apears to drain in notime but its not actualy draining its a irritating bug in the software which can be fixed by restarting the Phone after the charge is complete and you removed the plug.
Also sometimes its not recording screen on time which is fixed by closing the screen for 30 seconds then it will start recording screen on time again...
so even tho it seems to drain fast and your on 3 hours screen on and a few % left which i had yesterday it might still go on for a long time.
infact i spend over 5 hours on the last 2%.
so its only the % display that is bugged it is NOT actualy draining the battery.
so to everyone with batery issues try the Phone untill it shuts off and see if you have the same issue. your battery life might be fine but your display might just be bugged.
This apears to be from updating the Phone (pre kitkat)
if i have a fix (will try manual firmware flash soon) ill let you know but first please give me feedback is this is the same for all of you.
