Genuine Review, 23 Aug 2014DAY 5th
I got new issue with mobile -- Suddenly call disconnected within less than 3 minute... moreObviously if your cellular network has a low signal, the call may drop. That goes for all phones.
The 1.15 firmware had issues with dropping calls when the signal dropped below 20% but from what I am aware, the 1.16 and 1.17 firmwares resolved that.
Of course - when you have 0 signal, call can't continue.
Therefore upgrade of the firmware may help, as may changing the operator with one that has better signal in your area.
I don't think you've lost 13k on this. Heard of classified ads? List it.

s... moreCould be a bug.
Try using another player… MX Player, WinAmp,…
You could also get some other app to manage audio settings.
tanya sachan, 23 Aug 2014i ordered my asus zenfone from flipkart..bt d charger i got isnt going inside the socket provi... moreThe charger doesn't fit the socket on the wall? You would need a travel adapter.
The USB cable does not fit into the charger? The USB cable on the other side does not fit into the phone?
I've seen this on one of my ZenFones, and it wasn't the phone fault but the cable fault, where it was very tight and hard to plug into the phone. So I changed the cable with the one that came with another mobile.
I don't know what the return policy from your store is, but in many cases a new cable might cost less than return shipping, which most shops require buyer to pay.
If you have any USB 2.0 to micro USB cable for a 2.5" external hard disk for example lying around, try with that. If the cable does not fit into the charger, check to see if the contact inside is bent… or use any other USB charger, or USB port of your computer.
The charger is 1.55 A, if I remember correctly, although I've always used Samsung's 2.5A charger for my phone, so try not to use 0.5A chargers as they would be very slow.
AMIT TAAK, 23 Aug 2014I have buy it today... Some Heating in Battery. Please suggest.The battery gets warm while charging… most do.
If this is not during charging, and the heat is coming from just below camera, that's the Atom CPU that's heating up. It will get warm when doing anything CPU intensive.
Android JellyBean OS does not have any optimisations for the Atom CPU, hence the power management and throttling is done quite badly. This should vastly improve once KitKat update is released.
You can try to use power saver apps or battery saver option in the Power settings of the phone, which clock the CPU down a bit, lowering the heat emitted.
At this price this is the best phn available in market. Every phone has some con but we have to see what we get in this price.
while the zenfone 5 experience is good, i am unable to connect my wi-fi. have even tried out all workaround suggested by asus support webpage. my micromax is already connected with the same WEP security settings but Zenfone is unable to connect -says Authentication problem, any ideas?

Everything was more than fine build quality camera display and ui
Only problem was its battery it was draining by 1% in every 4-5 percent which means 10-12 % per hour without doing anything
Bt yesterday i downloaded greenify which is of 2mb approx and swichted on the power saving app at ultra mode
Now the draining has decreased to 1% per hour...

all those with network issue
call on this code
here u can set what type of network u want
set WCDMA ONLY if u want to use 3g internet, then ur speed will will never drop to 2g (from H+ to Edge E )
after ur 3g use just set it to
GSM ONLY or WCDMA PREFERRED to get best calling network in India. as 2g calling is better than 3g in India in most places.
n it takes only 3-4 seconds to do these settings , so do not think it is complicated.
enjoy 3g speed on ur zenfone 5
When i click on music's setting's - fine tune audio setting's, the music player force stops
says unfortunately the player has stopped
please help me out ASAP!!
A note to those who upgrade to firmware 1.17.40:
This might not be true for everyone, but in my case at least it automatically ticked "Use only 2G networks"… You need to untick it, and reboot the phone to connect to 3G network.
Just in case anyone suffered lousy speeds and saw E instead of H/H+ next to signal meter.
raaj, 23 Aug 2014my phone not connect my computer If you're using a Mac, use Android File Transfer program. On Windows 7/8 it should show in your computer as a connected device, and in it internal memory (and SD card, if you have any) as separate drives.
If you want to use PC Link, you need to download it for PC as well (from Asus website) and start program on both phone and PC. You will need to enable USB debugging for it to work.
If it does not detect it still, try another cable or another USB port.
Possibly a device started getting installed then something went wrong - maybe you need to uninstall driver on your computer (delete device in Device Manager if Windows) and plug it in again.
Hope this helps.
