Really disappointed with 8 MP camera. front camera is better than rear camera.
Ringer (speaker) volume is very low unable to hear in traffic.
One of my friends says that his asus zenfone 5 doesn't Read/Write SD Card.
Is it true ?
Should I rethink before having a new smartphone?

Using Samsung Galaxy Note II charger (2.5A) and a belt cable, the phone should charge from 0 to 100% in under 3 hours.
Obviously 0.5A charger would need 5x longer… and if there was anything wrong with cable, it could take forever.
So try to check these 2 first…
And until you find out that cable has no problems, please don't copy any firmware updates into the phone through that cable.
Hi tomaz, how to get d ww version. N hows d sound.is it too low. Is der any problem wid a batch of fon as some r having really worse opinion.

If you did that, then unfortunately there's not much we can do until the next firmware comes out.
At that time load complete firmware, not only FOTA update.
But with SIM slots not working either, your issues could be deeper.
Contact the seller or Asus service center.

You would only see notification icon if you're installing a newer version than one currently installed.
amit jain , 22 Sep 2014Dear touch is better than iphone.Iphone touch 76 ms whereas asus zenfone 5 touch response 60ms... moreI'm not looking at it from pure miliseconds of response time.
What I am looking at is how many times I felt that the phone is lagging, and when it registered the wrong taps, like when I just wanted to scroll but it opened the app instead.
I can't remember any of that happening on the Zen.
On others though - happened a lot. So there's absolutely nothing wrong with the touch function on the screen. It's actually one of the most perfected touch systems out there.
Gmobile, 22 Sep 2014I can't seem to turn off the vibration of zenfone 5 at then 3 main button...Swipe the screen to have active home screen.
Use the volume down button to 0, it will switch from volume to vibrate. Now press down volume again, and it will disable vibrate.
This may depend on your firmware version.
cabkat, 22 Sep 2014is normal if the phone heats up (mild temperature) while in pc link, will it damage the phone?when the phone's CPU is active, it heats up. That demonstrates as warm square cm of back plastic just under the camera flash.
That is normal and does not pose danger to the phone. The CPU is being monitored and the phone would shut down if temperature exceeds design limits.
cabkat, 22 Sep 2014hi tomazz, how did you manage to last you're battery life up to 3 days. should i have to updat... moreI never stated 3 days, I don't know who did.
My phone lasts 1 day of moderate use, and 2 days of light use.
I use no bluetooth, have auto setting on display brightness, battery optimizer (default power save option - middle), and a very good signal - I'm 5-10 m from the transmitter (great for getting cancer).
There are 2 SIMs, 3G SIM is on 2100 MHz, 2G SIM is 1800 MHz. Wifi is channel 1.
Bluetooth is off, so is flip cover setting and glove mode.
Using Wifi when indoors, 3G ouside.
Charging once every 2 days.
kanna, 21 Sep 2014did asus zenfone 5 has the otg cable connectivity option ???Yes, but it might not support everything plugged into the USB slot. Depends on whether that is supported by OS.
But yes, last couple of firmware revisions support OTG. Original firmware did not.
Anand, 21 Sep 2014Hi, I had brought Asus Zenfone 5 2 months ago Used as very fine mobile. but after 2 months One... moreCan you try to change to another USB cable and maybe try to charge it from a USB port on a computer (there you might need to let it install drivers first, before charging starts - on Windows 7 that should be done automatically), or use another USB charger for another phone.
When you start charging, it should show an empty battery for a moment, and it takes maybe 5 min before you can turn it on again.
Hmmm.. when plugged in, is the little LED next to the camera at the front illuminated in orange?
Or is it green?
If green, try to press power and down volume together to turn the phone on, and use a system restore in the menu.
Or you may press and hold power button for 10 seconds to force reboot if it starts but does not load OS properly...
Adjsl, 21 Sep 2014guys, please do not make any r&d on your set ,especially rooting or any other engineeri... morePretty standard recommendation - don't root your phone if you've got no clue what you're doing.
wasabihua, 21 Sep 2014Someone help me plsss... I can't see the 3g logo on my screen n I can't access to data... y???Is your Cellular Data enabled?
If it is, is the APN set up properly?
When you buy a phone from the operator, they would prefill these settings, but if you get it from another country, usually you need to set these things yourself.
Check the website of the operator for instructions and settings (most phones look the same in internet settings, so no need to look for this model), or take it to their counter to have it set up.
