But understand that software improvements can only do that much in extending battery life. They can not do miracles.
And Atom is still one power hungry beast, and so is the GPU that is built in. Atom is unlikely to ever come down to power consumption of ARM processors, but per core, it smokes ARM processors in speed by doing far more commands per cycle.
That said - putting a 3G game on an quad core ARM phone with 3000 mAh battery didn't last any longer than ZenFone 5.
Battery performance is very bad ..... get dischrged without using....... I have charged 100% but without using it it goes to 80% by end of day or with in 8 hours ..

Install it, run it, enable it, pick the apps and shut down their permissions to services they should not be using.
If you're unsure, use Always Ask.
In fact, if I were you I'd set all to always ask. Then you can see what is really needed and what is not.

Beats me why a shop which already knows who you are should be spying on your movements every 5 seconds through GPS positioning.
amit, 04 Nov 2014guys happy news, i just found out the reason for the pathetic battery life of this phone. it w... moreIf you read (now probably many) pages back, when the KitKat battery life discussion first started, you'll see me thrashing the Google Play Services and Weather widget for halving my battery life, and when I killed location access to them (that's what the permission manager is for) the battery life instantly doubled.
Another thing was that some apps that had camera access in permissions kept on turning camera on, which caused phone to overheat and kill the battery. However the battery fix should have fixed that. Still, I rather manually disable access to camera and microphone to apps that I deem do not need it.
But you are absolutely on the right track.
Sadly - people here are blaming Asus for it, but it's Google's own services that kill battery.
A-VED143, 04 Nov 2014does zenfone 5 ww version will get V22.214.171.124 please tell meYes, it will. As soon as bugs are ironed out.

I got my Zen5 a couple of weeks ago, i immediately got a 20mb update and then go... moreYou did full factory reset so it has already replaced any leftovers from JellyBean, so you should be fine.
As for battery - I recommend you permissions manager and disable permissions to everything that you think should not need them. Like why should Facebook have permissions to send SMS and MMS or make phone calls without your knowledge? Or why should a game have access to your camera, microphone, etc.
Using it on Asus I get 2 days+ of battery life out of it, and on Oppo Find 7 (yes, that phone that's supposed to have pathetic battery life) I am on 65% now, and I took it off the charger at 7 am YESTERDAY.
Both Asus and Oppo run beta builds of Kitkat.

My current version is asus_T00J_ww_126.96.36.199

Let me clarify. I was afraid that he might try to install 188.8.131.52 over a KitKat or something like that, which of course would not work. He would have to have an older version than 1.18 for that steps to work.
As for you - yes, the next version will have the complete OS including the patches in it, and what I would suggest you to do is to make automatic backup to your Gmail set up, so when you upgrade, you can do a full reset, then restore from backup, and your phone should be like new... except with new firmware version and all your settings and apps back :)
And someting more after KK up... When use 3g battery drainig is auful 30% for 30 minets of posting and reading gsmarena.com. After battery fix only standby time has inproof others as brawsing,gaming are still unexeptible. Waiting for 184.108.40.206 Ww with hope of many inproovments. Pardon me for the bad englesh!!!!

do i need to install donation package and lucky patcher and xposed framework

Hard rese... moreThank's one more question, after hard reset the os is staing the same(now i am with KK 220.127.116.11 waiting for 2.20.40 to fix some bugs or will downgrade to JB that i was when i both the phone)
I updated to kitkat when first released and still i am continuing with it. I too updated baterry fix after that. I am not facing that much problem as complained by many users here. Yes some bugs are there like my phone fm radio stops automatically after some time. Then i have to close and start again. But these are minor problem not affecting essential problems. Standby battery life is awesome though it drains faster during browsing on 3G, Gaming but i found performance is mind blowing for me, no lag, awesome smoothness etc. Others in my office also not facing those problems.

when you will google "" asus zenfone 5""
then u will get support site of zenfone 5 a500cg
mine is asus zenfone 5 a501cg.
And if you want a support site of a501cg then you have to change the url of zenfone 500cg to 501cg . just you need to put "1" insted of "0".then you will be redirected to it.
this is how I visit asus zenfone 5 a501cg support page.
So these are the problems.
If you have any doubts then ask tomazz sir. HE IS REAL MASTER in all this.
HE IS THE ONE WHO CAN SAVE US.
He helped me a lot and also taught me a lot.
THANKS A LOT TOMAZZ SIR.
