johnpa, 24 Sep 2014My phone has a display problem
When I take photos the depth of yellowishness is very high
My... moreSounds like 2 separate problems.
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.
aulia, 24 Sep 2014dear tomazz, here is my zenfone description
asus_toof (a500cg), ww-3g,d,16gb emmc, intel c... moreWell, CHN-Android is an issue, as that's the Chinese phone and likely has no PlayStore, or any other language than Chinese and English.
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...
My facebook app doesnt seem to be working well and its not the latest version of it. Is there a way to overcome this problem ? I dont seem to be able to play vidoes from fb app it transfers me to the web browser

I have bought Zenfone 5 (8gb) two days ago with Filpkart.
The Phone is working super fine. But my only concern is Battery life. I have used 3G for 3 hours and the battery drained from 100% to 28%. I am not playing any games or music. Only I am 3G surfing and my battery is draining like anything. I have to give charge three times in a day. I have heard from some of the review that battery is can last for minimum 1 day with heavy uses. But why I am facing this problem is there any problem with particular phone, should I contact flipkart to replace this phone. Please help me as I really liked this phone and want to use it.
Please reply fast as I need return it with 20 days.
Thanks in advance

You can only make video calls with Skype, Line, etc. over the data connection or over wifi connection.

sir please tell me the correct version of latest update for my asus zenfone 5 a501cg (WW).as update is not of full responsive phone is taking time in charging, camera clarity and other issues like draining of battery very fast.
Just stumbled into this video, how to change SKU from CN/TW into WW.
Basically downgrades through rooting to 1.14, then swaps the files with the WW firmware, and does a full data wipe and factory restore from WW firmware.
Maybe it's of use to any of you that got the wrong version of the phone...
cabkat, 24 Sep 2014and my friend hit and scratch it with a fork, it is still okay too.A bit lame test, but…
Second one is a bit better:
It is not as scratch-able as Sony XPeria.
kiiew, 20 Sep 2014Really? I tried to scratch my zenfone 5 with a key and coin and it was alrightand my friend hit and scratch it with a fork, it is still okay too.
kon lao, 24 Sep 2014hi guys, is it ok to use the phone, while charging it on the computer? Because that's what pc ... moreThat's OK. Unless you make it unable to ventilate, like if you place it under a blanket while charging, that could cause overheat and fire.
There is no such case reported on ZenFone, however there were with Samsung and Apple phones.
cabkat, 24 Sep 2014well, thanks. just curious what is with transmitter? why does it can cause cancer, and where c... moreUnder status you can see whether 2G or 3G network is being used, but the frequency will not be shown.
Generally the higher the frequency, the lower the power of transmission is required.
As for how they cause cancer - although it's much lower powered, the electromagnetic transmitter is not so different from a microwave. It's working on similar frequency, and it's very close to your brain. The way it works is by causing high frequency vibration of molecules, which rub against each other and through friction cause heat, which can damage DNA. Damaged DNA causes cells to reproduce wrong, which happens all the time, but if body does not recognise it, these cells can grow into a tumour.
That's why it is generally good to avoid high frequency electromagnetic waves, but in today's world, that's mission impossible unless you live in a Faraday cage.
