sir please tell me the correct version of latest update for my asus zenfone 5 a501cg (WW).as update is not of full responsive phone is taking time in charging, camera clarity and other issues like draining of battery very fast.
Just stumbled into this video, how to change SKU from CN/TW into WW.
Basically downgrades through rooting to 1.14, then swaps the files with the WW firmware, and does a full data wipe and factory restore from WW firmware.
Maybe it's of use to any of you that got the wrong version of the phone...

Second one is a bit better:
It is not as scratch-able as Sony XPeria.

There is no such case reported on ZenFone, however there were with Samsung and Apple phones.
AnonD-289600, 24 Sep 2014well, thanks. just curious what is with transmitter? why does it can cause cancer, and where c... moreUnder status you can see whether 2G or 3G network is being used, but the frequency will not be shown.
Generally the higher the frequency, the lower the power of transmission is required.
As for how they cause cancer - although it's much lower powered, the electromagnetic transmitter is not so different from a microwave. It's working on similar frequency, and it's very close to your brain. The way it works is by causing high frequency vibration of molecules, which rub against each other and through friction cause heat, which can damage DNA. Damaged DNA causes cells to reproduce wrong, which happens all the time, but if body does not recognise it, these cells can grow into a tumour.
That's why it is generally good to avoid high frequency electromagnetic waves, but in today's world, that's mission impossible unless you live in a Faraday cage.

Awesome, 24 Sep 2014I love Zenfone 6 but I cant add Khmer Unicode or Keyboard...too SAD! :(
Check the languages at the bottom of the list, else download Swype from PlayStore, which has more languages than Google.
Also note that the near all the languages are included only in WWE version of Android, but NOT in CU version. Check what is written on your phone's packaging.
Swype is free, and registration is 1$ if it's useful. So get the free one, then download new languages under settings to see if it works for you.
I use Swype on all my Android phones.
[deleted post]Try with these drivers"
Also make sure to enable USB debugging on the phone.
Hope it is of any use.

AnonD-308768, 23 Sep 2014If there will be any update for firmware in future. ..hos will i get all? ...please help me in... moreKitKat will be full system overwrite anyway. If you don't want to download 1.4 GB over your cellular connection, I would recommend you choose not to download it, and instead use your computer to connect to Asus website, phones, Zenfone 5, support, drivers and downloads, Android - and download complete update file.
I will place the file onto my server as a mirror as well, in case Asus site is busy.
As for the charger - it's fine. Anything is fine between 0.5 and 2.5 A, 5V USB. Only difference is the time it takes to charge the battery full, and the heat that charging causes - if you are charging on 35C ambient temperature or warmer, do not exceed 2.1A.
