Maddy07, 16 Oct 2014Dear Tomazz,
Could u plz suggest me if i should update my zf5 to 4.4? I hav already updated i... moreHard to say what would be better for you.
KitKat has both good and bad sides to it, so it's really depending on what matters to you.
If JB is fast enough for you, you are not likely to appreciate KK much. KK does bring more speed and more standby time. But not more operating time.
I personally do not have any bugs, on any of my phones and I am not aware anyone who I installed the updates for manually having any issues.
Obviously reading this thread here is scary, seeing a few dozen users being very unsatisfied with the product.
On the other hand, 15 million other buyers say nothing, so it's a little one-sided.
Therefore - if you're OK with it now, generally, then stay on what you have, and when the voices of battery bashing are gone, try the last version then...
But honestly - you'll be hard pressed to find a smart phone with a good battery life, especially when comparing with Nokia 3310.
Now try to compare with a netbook computer. As hardware inside both is near identical. I don't think anyone expects his laptop battery to last a week of use.

Could u plz suggest me if i should update my zf5 to 4.4? I hav already updated it to 10.40.10 however, reading about the battery n other issues after kitkat upgrade stops me frm updating my fone. Should i wait till the minor bugs on 4.4 Are fixed? What if i skip the current update n instal the next update after this? Also, plz suggest ways to increase battery life as my fone usually walks for 12 hrs with moderate ussage on 3g.
Thanks advance for ur help brother :)

pravins, 16 Oct 2014When will ASUS release the optimised version.. Em checking daily for update.. ma mob's chrge ... moreIt's already there on asus download site. If you previously already updated then you need to install battery fix released after that and do factory reset after installing battery fix update. you cannot again update to through OTA.
When will ASUS release the optimised version.. Em checking daily for update.. ma mob's chrge ws completely used up within 5 hrs of continuous usage.. and also facing heating probs...
