How to do wipe cache partition and will it help in the problem of battery drainage .
I already did factory reset ..
AnonD-313233, 22 Oct 2014Factory reset is same like root? It can downgrade firmware or not?No it is not the same.
Rooting requires installing a dedicated rooting software, factory reset is just that - it resets the settings to factory defaults.
You can downgrade a rooted device, but do be aware that any and all warranties are gone the moment you root it.
Asus will refuse to service the phone if you brick it.
My zenfone is rocking from 3 months.Except a few hiccups after Kitkat,there is nothing to dislike about it.Just do a factory reset from droid boot and reinstall every app fresh.Wish everyone's problem will b solved very soon.
AnonD-210234, 22 Oct 2014How did you update your phone? through OTA? or manual?I first updated OTA and had many problems including black screen etc. So I did a factory reset through droidboot (pressing power and volume up and selecting factory reset). Most problems went away after that. Later I downloaded the 700 MB complete kit Kat from asus site and did an upgrade through that. Then wiped the cache partition and did another factory reset.
I never have any problem with My Zen 5, it's one of the most amazing smartphones today. Nice interface. User-Friendly features. Fast inet connections! Thank you Asus!

Wipe the cache partition, download the complete kitkat update from asus and update with it and then do a factory reset from the droid boot menu. My zenfone works great now. Battery is a bit low but that's expected with a 5in screen dual SIM high performance device.

The remaining battery was like 55% and then I slept, when I woke up I was surprised to find that my phone was turned off I first thought it was dead on batteries, i tried to open it but it wont, it wont even charge. What should I do?

Also doesn't suits me, as for me dual sim is must. Zenfone suits me except it's battery during travelling. if i want to watch some videos or use internet or use gps it restricts me to use for a long period. I have to close games after 10-15 minutes to conserve power, but yes i am carrying a power bank now-a-days. Ofcourse Zenui is very good with inbuilt app lock feature, also i like the calling interface very much. All asus applications are built with material design which i liked too. It's touch response is awesome. All applications i use runs smoothly and opens quickly. Now with kitkat they added zoom in animation to display of flip cover view....so many other advantages. These are reasons for which i am still sticking with zenfone.
After reading all these issues mine seems simple, the speaker just went dead.

1) space needed for high capacity battery - there's not enough space in the phone for it. Max you could get is 10-20% more. Is that enough? Likely not.
2) the difficulty of replacing battery - you literally need to take the whole thing apart and battery is the very last thing that comes out. It is also using a very sensitive connector.
While I've already taken the Zen apart a couple of times, it's not really fun to reassemble, and that's definitely not something Asus would want you to do.
If you are after a longer battery life, and are looking for a pretty similar replacement to LTE version of ZenFone 5, you may wish to take a look at Benq F5. Same specs as Zenfone 5 LTE, larger and replaceable battery, 13 MP camera. Same price.
But no ZenUI... and no App drawer. Other than that, a marvellous phone.
