There is no way KitKat update can toast a formatter board.

I don't play games. so i can't tell you about battery life with gaming. I'm quiet satisfied with battery life with general usage.
Dear Tomazz here is My email to asus taiwan,pls be very advise what to do.
Before kitkat update your asus zenfone 5 used to work very fine on jellybean but after update all these problems like black screen on faulty incall ui,phone battery getting hot and sd card not reading app data problems started.
When i contacted asus india support helpline they asked me to go to service centre in my city Jabalpur India and after telling these problems get your software degraded to jelly bean once again.
i gave my phone to compuage infocomm ltd jabalpur authorised service centre of asus zenfone. After an hour they told me that your motherboard has become faulty due to kitkat update and they will have to replace it.OS software is not loading from their software and mobile serial no.E6AZCY800863 was not showing as flash image on their software.
They have given me RMA no.INY54A0003
I am disgustedly surprised to know that in just two months my asus phone has gone faulty because of faulty kitkat update provided by your company over FOTA. Service centre in Jabalpur is not even having a single motherboard for replacement and it will take a week to come.
I was a great fan of asus but after this terrible incident i will never use asus products.What was my fault? I just updated successfully all updates u have sent on my mobile.
many people in india are facing the same problem,asus must replace my faulty phone instead of repairing.i am still surprised how a faulty update from your side can corrupt motherboard.
Kindly if you have any resources in india please ask them to replace my phone with a new one.Regards
is this phone still have a problem of WhatsApp stuff been downoading only from WiFi connection?
Is the GPS working fine?
The two observations were made by the reviwer about 6months back, still wondersing if the problem persists?
can anyone please tell me how is the battery backup of Asus zenfone 5 ? i mean if i turn on my net all time then how long battery will stay ?
reza, 06 Oct 2014Anyone know that if i downgrade my zenfone to android 4,3 what problems is possible happening?There will be no problem in downgrading. I downgraded my phone earlier today. Working flawlessly. Just remember you have to fastboot recovery img first before sideload 4.3

Using Zenfone 5 for more than a month.. was quite good before the kitkat update except that i wasn't able to make con.call. But after kitkat update the phone's battery dries more quicker. The lock-screen wakes often without reason.
Gravel, 05 Oct 2014after kitkat the performance is not smooth enough.
all transition effects r very..
anyone or... moreIt will be better , if you will do factory reset and reinstall/Update all apps. as soon as you restart your phone, google play will suggest you update all apps. It worked for me , as after Kit kat update i was unable to open setting menu and massage was showing unfortunately setting menu will close. after it i did as mentioned above and now issue is resolved. Hoping it will work for you.
PS Please take proper backup of all necessary data before doing factory reset.

adjsl, 06 Oct 2014The same is here. but battery drainage is going fast.If i check on reasons to consume battery ... moreGoogle claimed that it's camera connector has a bug.
I think that's complete bs.
The main culprit in my case seems to be the Google Play Services, which keeps on requesting location from GPS.
