Very early models came with 1 GB RAM. They might still be kicking around.
Seems Asus is phasing out 8 GB version and replacing it with 16 GB version at the same price. At least here in Thailand they've already done that.
So to know what version you're getting, check the back of the box. That's where specs are written.
Imagine this as buying a laptop. There's one model of it, but then there are options for different CPUs, amount of RAM, hard disk sizes, etc.
Asus can put in whatever they want and still call it ZenFone 5. But the specs are chosen based on the target market's price sensitivity.
So safest bet is, unless the seller specifically writes it, to check what it says at the back of the box, or in the settings of the phone.
Existing use please tell me that 8gb model have how much ram..??? 1gb or 2gb i am confuse.. i am planning to buy this phone.....Reply me fast as soon as possible.....
Mikkan, 21 Aug 2014Hello Tomazz,
Since you are using "Notification Light Widget" ,posting your queries... moreErm no.
I have put the widget on one of the pages, tapped on it to turn it on. And that was it.
When the phone restarts or turns on, maybe 10-15 seconds after it's booted, a message appears that notification light is turned on.
I rarely reboot the phone, so it's on for week + but I have not noticed any issues on 1.16.40 and 1.17.40 firmware.
It did not work on 1.15 though. No matter what you set.
It is awesome phone.. better battery back up. Nice pixel master camera nd all types of videos ( 720 p /1080 p ) supported.. so i didn't need to convert any Video into mp4 format.. it's touch is very soft nd quick responsive.. overall unbeatable.
What about Wi-fi issue..? Is it fixed? Pls help Friends.. or it will be fixed in Fota update? any help will be highly appreciated ..Thnx.
Since you are using "Notification Light Widget" ,posting your queries.Others also can give a try ,if you are using it.
In my experience,in the mornings I find the either notification light widget will be shown in switched off form or eventhough it is lighted ,still needs to touch it two times to ensure that it is working(notification flashes as on).I have placed this widget in a home screen which I don't visit quite often(Just wondering is it because of focus or not).So to summarize,do you also noticed any weird behavior with this widget?
karthick12345, 21 Aug 2014Still facing Wi-Fi issue. Can I replace the device?
Wi-Fi settings screenshot : http://imgur.... moreLooking at your screenshot, you have 2 lines of signal, which shows it being quite weak.
Is it possible that your connection drops when signal gets too low, or maybe the Zenfone stays connected but lowers the sensitivity to reduce power or something like that?
Could you move closer to router, so you have full signal, and check if it still drops off, to test this theory?
karthick12345, 21 Aug 2014I guess only few persons are facing this issue. Hope they'll fix in future updates.Try rebooting your wifi router or try connecting to another one.
Not on ZenFone, but on iPhone I've had tremendous problems getting the thing connected to the Cisco wifi router.
Rebooting the router fixed the issues… for a while.
Then I just got fed up with it and bought a different brand of router. No issues since.
wong, 21 Aug 2014My asus zenfone 5 not working when i want charge my phone :(If charging is not working, there are 3 possible issues - charger, USB cable, phone.
Try with elimination…
If you plug it into a USB port of your computer - does it charger?
If you have another USB to microUSB cable lying around, can you try that one? And try it from a USB port of computer or another powered USB port like a powered USB hub?
If none of that work, it's probably a phone problem, in which case I'd recommend you to contact Asus service centre.
karan, 20 Aug 2014Thanks bro.....and one question more how is the battery backup for a normal user. ThnkyouI don't know if I am a normal user, but I charge it every other day when not used much, or if I am snapping photos, taking videos, read news, use GPS, etc. then it still lasts me through the day with lots of buffer.
If you're a heavy user, you may wish to consider a power bank.
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2014friends does it support normal sized sim or not does the phone has 3.5mm or 2.5mm audio jack ... moreIt is microSIM - same as most of the phones of last year or 2, but standard started with iPhone 4.
It uses standard 3.5 audio socket, just like every other mobile phone out there. Any headset for iPhone or Android would do for calls and music, as would headphones that fit it. But to use the buttons on headset you will need Android compatible set.
The one that comes in the box is actually decent in-ear set.
