For me, it is not frustating much. When I don't like my phone, I sold it and bought a new one with newer Android version and almost the specs or at least have 2 GB RAM and internal 16 GB.

Zenfone 2 already receive their 2nd follow up updates to Android M. We do not get even the primary update for Android M. Very frustrating.
strength , 19 Aug 2016when will come out new generation padfone ?...damn. letting me wait too long..Almost no rumor again, the Padfone S itself not as success as Zenfone series. By judging Indonesia region, people the most prefer Zenfone series and the most of them do not know Padfone S. The update for Padfone S itself is too long waiting. Added.... Asus markets and display Zenfone series a lot compared with Padfone S.
when will come out new generation padfone ?...damn. letting me wait too long..
Eva, 03 Aug 2016Is it a worth buy? Planning to gift it to hubby.. plz suggestIt still worth in my opinion, but by looking this year and many new smartphones appear, there are many choices out there for better spec and newer release.
alan sykes, 02 Aug 2016i need to check with everyone. has anyone update to firmware V22.214.171.124. Any issues? - phone... moreBeforer I sold my Padfone S, the WW 11.10.17 version I tried was little issue too. Sometimes it does restart randomly by itself.
alan sykes, 02 Aug 2016Since you flash to kitkat 18. did you check if you are able to use the PlayTo (miracast/DLNA) ... moreNo, I didn't. I didn't use Miracast or DLNA, so I don't know about this. And I would like to tell that I never try Miracast or DLNA for all smartphones I have ever used so far.
Eva, 03 Aug 2016Is it a worth buy? Planning to gift it to hubby.. plz suggestdepends. what kind of cellphone does your husband used before? there are type of people who use certain phone brands (e.g.: samsung, sony, HTC,etc...). if they want to have latest phone, they just buy the same brand (because they feel comfortable with the brand), if your husband prefer functionality than brand, it worth the buy.
i need to check with everyone. has anyone update to firmware V126.96.36.199. Any issues?
- phone reboot itself (while using app: google map)
- able to use miracast?
- zen music app EQ force close the app
- any other issue arises after update???

Previously i did comment about heating issue compared to my wife 2yearold galaxy s3. Now i dont think i have the heating issue. I dont know why. I just love this phone even its screen cracked already. This phone charging fast. i think 2.5 hours fully charge the battery. No lagging issue for now. Transfer files between internal to external no problemo.

The phone itself is hell so fast and fluid, but the tablet seems so slow. Hope ASUS can rectify this.
Now buying the Padfone S Plus 64GB, 3GB RAM version, together with it's tablet station and Padfone X bluetooth keyboard(which is fully compatible and able to hold the tablet station)
Yes, outlook wise, this is some of the most outdated phone, tablet and netbook.
But functionality wise, this is the most versatile hybrid device, which is a 5" phone, a 9" tablet, and also a netbook with keyboard. Ok, quality wise, overall setup is very buicky and heavy, tablet speaker is not ok, tablet station cannot access OTG, all plasticky built, front camera is old school 2M, no fingerprint scanner, no IR port, but still remain the NFC.
All in all, with overall price cut that is more than half from it's original release for 64GB version (including price cut for original accessory), this is the truly all in one device that is not breaking the bank, but still remain high performance with SD801 processor and 3GB RAM.
