AnonD-279813, 09 Oct 2014Well, sort of. Please read this for a much better explanation than my tired eyes can manage... moreThere is another way to get android kitkat for my zenfone without fastboot it? I do not know how to fastboot my phone. It is same like rooting?
AnonD-279813, 09 Oct 2014Lag on KitKat is not something that you would expect to hear.
I mean KitKat is much faster ... morem getting lag while scrolling
i just did through backup & reset option in personal settings then select back up my data and click on factory data reset

I found this link you posted but its T00F pasted below.
[deleted post]2 hours battery and heat at the back… what are you doing with it? Playing 3D games?
In that case heat and short (although not really THAT short) battery life would be expected.
But if you're doing something, that's not normal.

I mean KitKat is much faster than JellyBean, so there must be something else at play.
You said you did Factory reset. How did you do that?
It is possible to downgrade… posted today in the morning I think, with fastboot.
AnonD-313233, 09 Oct 2014What is fastboot? Software?Well, sort of.

AnonD-302525, 09 Oct 2014No, It will not resolve your problem just wait for stable Kitkat build as present Kitkat build... moreGreat. There is not new update to resolve this problem? Before 1.18.40 I have not any problem but now I can not use my phone. I must 3x charge per day!!! How does it possible? And this is not a kit kat already.

any 1 knw how to re install jelly bean ?? kitkat really sucks
AnonD-279813, 09 Oct 2014Are you using ultra saving mode?No @tomazz. I don't use the power saver app at all. Although my battery has improved, its not a big improvement. But it's better than before that's for sure.
AnonD-291211, 09 Oct 2014For me update 18.104.22.168 battery fix didn't helped even battery drains faster than before. Mos... moreIn my experience with several different phones, not all Asus even, on 4.4.2 you never know what will happen to one app to start chewing up battery.
That's why I am so sceptical about this "battery fix". But what you can do is go to the Location and either turn it off or at least turn it off for the google play services.
The biggest impact will be from full OS restore from recovery partition though. Your battery drain should be 2-3% per 3-4 hours.
AnonD-302525, 09 Oct 2014Hi Tomazz,
I have done OTA update for kitkat but battery is draining too fast. So please tel... moreDo full restore from recovery partition and install the battery fix.
I don't know how useful the battery fix would be, in my case it made no difference, in cases of some others it did.
OK, I take that back. 1 day and 12 hours, and there is 33% left. That's better than before. Not significantly so, though.
But removing all settings and apps, then restoring them might help significantly to situation you are facing.
