friends anyone who are not able to update the phone to kitkat, i would suggest that the best method to update the phone is downloading the latest firmware from asus website itself and then installing it via sideload . this way you will also not have the bugs which some kikat users faced and also it is the best method

pistol , 06 Nov 2014this phone generally is super cool for its level. reasonable. worth of money. but the bad thin... moreWell... to put things in perspective.
I have a Mac. With 64 GB RAM. Even when loading only a handful of apps, my available RAM would be ... well, close to 0.
The reason is that the phone will be using some (or most of) RAM to provide a quick start of applications. Some sort of cache.
What you could do on Mac to release that would be SUDO PURGE.
While that would release the inactive RAM, it would of course take longer to start apps, etc. after that.
If you don't do it, system will automatically release that RAM when another app starts.
Therefore you do not need to look at the available RAM. That's only the RAM that hasn't been used. Where your memory is really at, is inactive RAM.
bbe066, 06 Nov 2014Guys i am facing UI issue...for e.g. app.s gets crash automatically...and it shows System UI h... moreThat was an issue on early JellyBean firmware. It could be OTA update with missing previous updates.
What version are you on now?
In either case I'd recommend flashing phone with newer firmware than current one, a full firmware file (not OTA). If you are on 1.14, then load 126.96.36.199 full firmware (around 700 MB), if you're on 1.18 already, and don't mind moving to KK, then try 2.19.
Do note that in the latter case you will need to do a cache partition wipe and full restore from recovery partition, so it cleans up anything that could be causing troubles.
AnonD-323779, 06 Nov 2014didn't worked tomazz bro :( Can you put the name of your operator in here, and maybe someone else using same operator can help?

surya, 06 Nov 2014I want to buy this phone pls tell me any problems with it.
I) Wat about camera quality and ca... moreProcessor and RAM management are OK, it is better in managing it than Samsung's GUI. As for camera - I just posted some samples a couple of posts back - there's a link to a folder on server, where some photos are uploaded. They are untouched.
The end of the name has a code in capitals, that's Panorama, LowLight, DepthofField, HDR, MiniTure effect. One of the photos (showing 2 minidisc players) is taken with front-cam. The rest with back cam.
MAHI, 06 Nov 2014in zenfone5 8/16gb memory which is good and 8gb contains hw much ram can tell Original models with 8 GB eMMC had 1 GB RAM, those were early A500CG TOOF models. They might still be kicking around, usually with Chinese only Android version.
All WW models, A501CG, with 8 GB eMMC came with 2 GB RAM, and all 16 GB eMMC versions, whether A501CG (3G dual SIM) or A500KL (4G single SIM) come with 2 GB RAM.
Kelven joy, 06 Nov 2014Is asus zen 5 have time rewind like asus zen 6?Yes, the camera module is identical, only sensor resolution is different. So all functions that ZenFone 6 has, Zenfone 5 also has.
Kelven joy, 06 Nov 2014Is asus zen 5 multi task? I mean if u browse one window u can still open an0ther window?You mean like Samsung Note multi-window?
hero, 06 Nov 2014how is the camera quality,battry backup, and sound quality..plz reply planning for buy it..Camera samples are on http://www.mega-networks.asia/ZenCam
Battery - totally varies on use, and whether you're willing to kill Google Play Services.
I get 2 days out of it with some to spare. Some get far less than that, but if you read this thread, you'll find tips how to improve that.
Sound quality is OK on headphones, but speaker volume is low.
