Nishi Kant, 07 Oct 2014What is difference between ZenFone 5 (A500CG) and ZenFone 5 (A501CG)'s phone ?
Asus Officia... moreHardware wise they are very similar, but A500CG is generally intended for Chinese speaking market, and exists in 1 and 2 GB RAM variants, 1.6 or 2.0 GHz Atom CPU, with 8 or 16 GB eMMC. Usually CU-ANDROID is loaded, which supports English and Chinese.
On the other hand A501CG has only 1.6 GHz CPU, always 2 GB RAM, 8 or 16 GB eMMC, and WWE-ANDROID loaded, which supports nearly all language from around the World for keyboard and often also for the menus.

Several users have confirmed that the black screen, extensive heat from CPU, Wifi and Bluetooth problems, GPS problems, cellular data problems, keyboard problems - were resolved after a complete restore.
AnonD-303138, 07 Oct 2014Any advantage on battery life if I root my zenfone ? Anyone did that ? Rooting alone won't do anything.
But it will allow you to tweak the CPU and kill off the Google apps, which are draining the battery, by that significantly extending battery time in IDLE.
However if you are a gamer, the high graphic games will either burn the same amount of power, or if you downclock CPU burn less but that would affect the performance of games as well.

If JB isn't fast enough for you, then you can upgrade.

What is difference between ZenFone 5 (A500CG) and ZenFone 5 (A501CG)'s phone ?
Asus Official website shows A500CG's specifications but other place and flipcart sell A501CG.

I need help because my zenfone battery does not increase though I've charged it for a whole night. it only increased from 6% to 39%. this happen after I upgraded to kitkat 4.4.

Naveen, 06 Oct 2014Hi, when their is no video calling option means , what is the use of providing the front camera.Can use third party apps like viber , IMO, and skype for vedio calling. IMO is tested well and it works nicely.
Can asus or google still improve this battery issue? Overall it is awesome but the downside is the battery. I want to still hope that there would be a fix and they still working for it.
im planning to buy this phone today or tomorrow, may i know the good and the bad side of this phone? as i read your opinion during updating it to KITKAT, the battery dries so quickly and the phone will get hot that much..is this true? may i know your feedback on this?
Kitkat update just ruined the phone completely... Superb battery consumption and lots of crashes here and there... Hope Asus fixes this as early as possible...
