guys asus mailed me recently telling me abut the camera problems and they know that sometimes the camera takes overexposed shots and photos comes out artificial and plastic..they are working on the exposure algorithm and they are gonna improve it in the next update
A per your instruction i checked the Build number it is.
I have done factory reset also. But of no use till now.
Call is still dropping at the time between 8 min 15 sec to before 9 minutes. I made 8 calls and receive 10 calls all calls drop before 9 minutes. It just a making me sad as i have gone all reviews no one is complaining of call drop only i am facing . Please suggest what to do.
Tomazz, 04 Nov 2014Don't worry about your English. But understand that software improvements can only do that ... moreThat goes for heating while plaing and even browsing i gues..???Thank's for the anser!!!!
Dear Tomazz sir,
How you killed location access to Google Play Services and weather using app op starter.
I have installed it when you suggested for the first time but still sometimes Google Play Services starts on their own for location access.
peeyes, 04 Nov 2014Is OTG acceptable? , if anyone knows please reply meNO
Exactly how long will zenfone 5 last? I might use 3G, and screen time around 1-2 hours.

But understand that software improvements can only do that much in extending battery life. They can not do miracles.
And Atom is still one power hungry beast, and so is the GPU that is built in. Atom is unlikely to ever come down to power consumption of ARM processors, but per core, it smokes ARM processors in speed by doing far more commands per cycle.
That said - putting a 3G game on an quad core ARM phone with 3000 mAh battery didn't last any longer than ZenFone 5.
Battery performance is very bad ..... get dischrged without using....... I have charged 100% but without using it it goes to 80% by end of day or with in 8 hours ..

I hope you are talking about greenfy
are u talking about hibernet.

Install it, run it, enable it, pick the apps and shut down their permissions to services they should not be using.
If you're unsure, use Always Ask.
In fact, if I were you I'd set all to always ask. Then you can see what is really needed and what is not.

Beats me why a shop which already knows who you are should be spying on your movements every 5 seconds through GPS positioning.
amit, 04 Nov 2014guys happy news, i just found out the reason for the pathetic battery life of this phone. it w... moreIf you read (now probably many) pages back, when the KitKat battery life discussion first started, you'll see me thrashing the Google Play Services and Weather widget for halving my battery life, and when I killed location access to them (that's what the permission manager is for) the battery life instantly doubled.
Another thing was that some apps that had camera access in permissions kept on turning camera on, which caused phone to overheat and kill the battery. However the battery fix should have fixed that. Still, I rather manually disable access to camera and microphone to apps that I deem do not need it.
But you are absolutely on the right track.
Sadly - people here are blaming Asus for it, but it's Google's own services that kill battery.
A-VED143, 04 Nov 2014does zenfone 5 ww version will get V220.127.116.11 please tell meYes, it will. As soon as bugs are ironed out.

I got my Zen5 a couple of weeks ago, i immediately got a 20mb update and then go... moreYou did full factory reset so it has already replaced any leftovers from JellyBean, so you should be fine.
As for battery - I recommend you permissions manager and disable permissions to everything that you think should not need them. Like why should Facebook have permissions to send SMS and MMS or make phone calls without your knowledge? Or why should a game have access to your camera, microphone, etc.
Using it on Asus I get 2 days+ of battery life out of it, and on Oppo Find 7 (yes, that phone that's supposed to have pathetic battery life) I am on 65% now, and I took it off the charger at 7 am YESTERDAY.
Both Asus and Oppo run beta builds of Kitkat.
nik17, 04 Nov 2014Dear Tomazz sir,
My current version is asus_T00J_ww_18.104.22.168
then I have installed 1 OTA... moreDear Nik,
Let me clarify. I was afraid that he might try to install 22.214.171.124 over a KitKat or something like that, which of course would not work. He would have to have an older version than 1.18 for that steps to work.
As for you - yes, the next version will have the complete OS including the patches in it, and what I would suggest you to do is to make automatic backup to your Gmail set up, so when you upgrade, you can do a full reset, then restore from backup, and your phone should be like new... except with new firmware version and all your settings and apps back :)
And someting more after KK up... When use 3g battery drainig is auful 30% for 30 minets of posting and reading gsmarena.com. After battery fix only standby time has inproof others as brawsing,gaming are still unexeptible. Waiting for 126.96.36.199 Ww with hope of many inproovments. Pardon me for the bad englesh!!!!
