AnonD-509876, 02 Mar 2016Have you try Knockr from Gplay knock on screen to wake up?No,I didn't. I use Gravity screen. It is better I think.
I have used it for more than 21 days now in KitKat 18 firmware version on Padfone S, no restart by itself problem. So far it is good.
For users who like double tap or using hand near the proximity to screen off the LCD, you might be want to install smart screen on/off. I use this app, now my Padfone S will turn off screen by double tap and hand cover the proximity sensor and screen on when hand cover the proximity sensor.
After several days of used, I went back to KitKat 18 again. So far I don't face random restart by itself in KitKat.
I had installed the latest Lollipop firmware (WW 188.8.131.52), still the same, random reboot by itself sometimes happen

Heating issue. It generates more heat than my wife 2 yearold galaxy s3 even using it for about 10 min of camera, web browsing. It feels uncomfortable when we put the heated phone in pocket.
Camera review. Not a good front (selfie) camera. Very poor picture quality. But the back camera is quite good. In automatic setting only can set 3M (4:3) and 2M (16:9) only. U will get 10M if set to other options.

U can update it manually by downloading the update zip file form Asus support webpage if u didn't receive it through OTA, maybe this can solve our problem.

Since firmware WW.11.18, I encountered restart by itself. First happened in Dec 12, 2015 when I was YouTube (restarted when I started to stream, was connected to portable WiFi). Second, happened in Dec 16, 2015, when I was typing in WPS Office.
rasin, 15 Dec 2015Why you didn't buy the s plus one?I bought Padfone S without docking. In my country the sales have two types: first one with docking (more expensive), second without docking (cheaper). And I paid for USD 170,82 only (converted from Indonesia Rupiah). The Padfone S Plus with docking was USD 281,554 (converted from Indonesia Rupiah).
So I chose cheaper type, limited budget.
Quite a nice phone. The only problem was the battery life. Upgraded to CM12.1 and it works like a charm.
