Mikkan, 24 Sep 2014Hi Thomaz,
Want to check whether what are the difference you are observing with Swype and Asu... moreThe original keyboard (for non English layouts) has extra keys on the right side, while Swype does not. But the Swype has the voice and drawing buttons, which can be switched off.
Swype has more layouts and dictionaries than stock keyboard, but both of them are performing well.
Prefer them over the Samsung and Sony ones. Oppo comes with Swype as default anyway, and HTC is in the same class anyway.

When you start nearing that figure, it'll start warning you that you're about to run out.
If your internet is unlimited, you can disable that.

kon lao, 24 Sep 2014hi guys, is it ok to use the phone, while charging it on the computer? Because that's what pc ... moreHi, kon lao. The general rule still applies, if it heats up, let it cool down. It will also help to kill running applications as they tend to cause the CPU to overwork. As for the KitKat update, the Philippine ASUS page has confirmed just today that the KitKat update is coming very, very soon.
Hi, Gian. We actually have the same name, LOL. To fix that issue, please go to Settings > Data Usage. It will show you a graph of your consumed amount of data. On the graph, you will see an orange horizontal bar indicating the data cap. The bar is adjustable. Just drag it higher and that should fix it.

sreeedhar, 24 Sep 2014sir please tell me the correct version of latest update for my asus zenfone 5 a501cg (WW).as u... moreLast version for WWE-Android is 1.18.40.
This is complete firmware file which requires no previous updates, it's all-in-one. However you can only install it if you do not already have 1.18 installed.
To install it over previous 1.18 you'd need to root your phone to make it accept this file, which is not recommended.
The next version of firmware (Asus promised KitKat in the last week of September) will overwrite whole JellyBean anyway, so there's your chance to upgrade if you're already on incomplete 1.18 without the will to root.
Please make confirm if Intel processor does support all older android apps as well ?
I have some apps which is there since pre ICS version of android & some non-play store apps so I am worried if it won't support or start crashing frequently, that's why there is hesitation in my mind to switch over to Intel processes(zenfone 5)
I want to buy mobile. Please help me.which one is better..
1) ASUS Zenfone 5
2) Micromax Nitro
3) Moto G 2nd generation

You can only have video calling over Skype, Line, etc. software, which use either cellular data connection or wifi connection. Apart from cost of data (if you are not on unlimited plan), the calls in those bits of software are free, and most have PC/Mac version for computer as well, apart from being multi-platform (iOS/Android/Windows Phone/Blackberry), so getting your contacts to use same program should not be a very big problem.
khushbu, 24 Sep 2014hey can u tell me how is the cammera of asus zenfone five, nd how the works led flash when we ... moreOn original firmware flash was very weak and that was fixed in 1.15 I believe, so if you load all OTA firmware updates one after another, or load full 1.18 update the flash is OK, about the same as others.
Camera samples are in mega-networks.asia/ZenCam
LL is Low Light mode, PN is Panorama, HDR is … well, HDR, DF is fake depth of field, MN is miniature effect.
To see pics, click on their names, and back button in browser to return to the list. I recommend you download the pics and open them in a software that you would normally use.
One of the photos in there (of 2 minidisc players) is taken with the front camera, the rest are with rear camera.

For connection to computer - try another USB slot or different USB cable. Even if cable works for charging it might not work for data - there are 4 cables inside, and 2 are used for power and other 2 for data. So worth to try any other USB cable, especially well-built ones like those of portable hard disks.
Then of course another USB slot is because the driver needs to be installed for each of the USB sockets. I've posted link to USB driver for Windows 7, which you may wish to try to install to replace stock Windows driver.
Then make sure that your phone is in MTP mode - in Storage, tap on USB logo top right and choose MTP, and NOT Camera.
Last but not least, reboot both phone and Windows computer before trying again.
As for the screen - it is of course possible that the phone is having a yellow tinted display, but it is also possible that it is just wrongly calibrated.
Asus includes a "Splendid" app, where you can set colour tone and intensity.
Try that to see if you can get acceptable results.

A few posts back there's a video link to youtube on how to root the phone and revert it to 1.14 (if you need to), then swap the files inside the packages, to replace Chinese with International version of Android.
But as I see above it seems you've already fixed that :)
That's great to hear, and should you have any other issues, please don't hesitate to ask. There are many people in here willing to help each other as well, generally a much nicer community than some others...
