azane, 16 Sep 2014My phone is not reading my sd card. anybody else is the same problem? any suggestion pleaseTake out SD card, put it in PC in an adapter, format it in FAT32, put it back in the phone.
Does it recognise it?
If not, is this a brandname SD card or a Chinese copy? Asus has a list of SD cards tested, and it mostly includes only the likes of Sandisk, Samsung, Kingston, AData, …
If your card is one of those, and it's between 1 and 64 GB, class 4, 6, or 10, then your phone could have an issue with the slot, or the contacts on the SD card could be greasy.
You can try to clean them with a cloth or a soft polymer eraser.

The reason is that in order to make image larger, it increases size of each pixel, kind of like resizing a photo in Photoshop to make it larger. This always produces grainy, soft image, but it is a compromise, to avoid having lens stick a few cm out from the back of the phone.
Digital zoom is often used on video cameras beyond optical zoom range, and has identically horrific results. Which is why many cameras have an option to turn it off.
chriseano, 15 Sep 2014Hey guys, I need your help. I just received the Asus Zenfone5 from an online shopping site and... moreHard to tell whether this is a software or hardware issue.
Can you try to factory reset the phone to see if sound returns?
If it does, then something went wrong during the app updates or account restore.
Like in my case, once on the old phone I've turned Line notifications off. I didn't know it would save this to backup.
So when I got new phone, and long forgetting that notifications were turned off before, I couldn't get any notifications from Line. Uninstalled, reinstalled, to no avail.
Then I opened settings, and it was turned off… Darn!
I don't know what all is written in backup, and I am only adding this to give you something more to check where the issue could be coming from.
But you would really get the answer after factory reset - if speaker works again, it's something on the software/apps. If speaker does not work after the reset, then it's not.
Could be something as small as on one of the old phones setting the sound to go to bluetooth speakers...

salihin, 15 Sep 2014why my asu s zenfone 5 has only 4gb rom
Total or available?
8 GB model has about 4.99 GB partition for your apps/data, while the other 3 GB is used by Android OS.
Is this what you mean?
Or is total eMMC only 4 GB? That would leave nearly no space for data or apps, so I find it hard to believe it would be the case...

It will depend on screen brightness, whether movie is in the phone or streamed, and if streamed, from 3G or Wifi, and in what format/resolution it is.
The best you can expect with dim screen, locally stored h264 native resolution file would be up to 9 hours. With medium brightness, wifi streamed, it would be 4-5 hours tops.

And previously you said zenfone has lithium ion polymer, did you mean li-po? or li-po with li-ion? Sorry for being stupid, i am just confused but still want to know about this matter. Thank you in advance.
