The fixes and improvements are only those that Asus has done.
Any Intel optimisations are done by Google, not Asus.
So when it says that it's KitKat update, it comes with all the good and the bad parts that KitKat brings.
Asus can't take any credit for any of those.

In my non-scientific test, trying to use only CPU, it's about 15% advantage towards KitKat vs. JellyBean. Not quite sure what to say about "normal" usage patterns and how that would look like.
naga, 01 Oct 2014I have bought zenfone 5, 2 months ago... It gets shut down automatically on its own at times..... moreGet full new update installed (KitKat is conveniently coming any moment now), then do a full factory reset.
Do check what apps you have installed, as this restarting issue can come from 3 sources:
- overheating CPU
- badly written apps, causing system crashes
- system lacking some of the updates

Now note this is basically on idle, no screen used, only CPU basically running.
