DzeyAy, 03 May 2020One thing I noticed about these older Asus Zenfone models is that the battery life isn't that ... moreI was at work, and phone froze in my pocket and I feel pain in leg, It was in a bootloop and too hot. I love this phone and it wants to leave me. :(
Very good mobile,fast internet,downloading.I have downloaded many apps still working now.but main camera disappoints but selfie ok otherwise super
One thing I noticed about these older Asus Zenfone models is that the battery life isn't that impressive at all, and overheating is a major problem that causes the CPU to hang/freeze-up every time it overheats. I hope Asus has found a reliable fix for the newer models that have 4000-5000 mAh batteries and above.
Here is the official lollipop update for all variants
how to unlock asus A500CG T00J
First of all switch off your phone.
Then press and hold the Volume Up + Power key at the same time for a few seconds.
Press the Volume Down to choose "factory reset", and then push the Power button to confirm.
(Factory data reset will erase all data on the phone.)
Bought this ZF5 (TOOF/2Gb/16Gb) back then around September 2014.
Hardwares still good except for batery (changed it with cheap OEM batery so now it's good again).
Flashed it to Android Nougat (RR final thanks to xda and tank0412) + Gapps PICO.
And I must admit,it runs smoother,faster than Kitkat/Lolipop from official asus OTA update.
Still I am not recommending this phone as daily driver phone,,, because you know,,, the batery SOT sucks especially for 2018 standart.And also because only support up to 3G connection.
