I purchased this Zenfone 5 about a month back. A good phone then. After it automatically upgraded to Android 4.4.2, i am facing the following problems.
1)When I hang up after a call, the screen goes black and only RESTARTING the phone brings it to normal operation. However if the party at the other end hangs up, this does not happen.
2) Battery drain has increased considerably.
3) Phone heats up for no apparent reason.
4) Headphone icon comes ON without headphones being connected.
Can someone guide me to revert back to the previous android version?
I have upgraded my Zenfone 5 to Android 4.4.2, 10 days back. Before upgrading the phone's performance was good. After upgrading, the following problems have started.
1) Everytime I hang up after a call, the phone displays a black screen. Then I have to Restart my phone to use it. If the party at the other end hangs up, then this does not happen.
2) The battery drains much much faster than before.
3) The phone starts heating up for no reason.
Can i be guided to revert back to the previous version of android?

greetings to all of you.. I am currently using this Zenfone 5 and really amazed how it works and how user friendly this mobile phone.
but one thing I discovered just now is, when the system upgrade was completed and reboot completed, I couldn't see the "keyboard" afterwards.
anyone can advice?
thanks to all the users
After kit Kat update I have to swipe the lock screen even if it is a pattern or any other lock. It's like having two locks. And there are some Bluetooth issues too.
Any help would be grateful
