Tomazz, 18 Sep 2014CU Android is the Chinese Universal version of the SKU.
It is intended for China, Taiwan, H... moreYes, you're right. Pretty big discounted one. I just realized it after getting my ZF5 replaced by the seller, still not the WW SKU but the TW one, but it's not rooted and can do OTA and can read & write in Korean, the inbuilt apps are not from 3rd party like fb, (eventough has some apps based on Mandarin), the back plate is also not a sticker but a logo, so no problem again. I probably mistaken because just saw the WW user written there not see the CU-Android under that.
back to these days, I downloaded the WW SKU, it can't be applied to my first ZF5 which is CU-Android, so it has to be the same SKU if you want to upgrade the firmware manually, my opinion.
The guy with the facebook app problem should have the same version as my first ZF5, or it might have rooted already by the supplier/anybody out there besides himself. It should be replaced.

Tomazz, 18 Sep 2014Download from: http://www.mega-networks.asia/ZenFone/ZenFone5_WW_Firmware/UL_ASUS_T00F_WW_1_18... moreThanks for your reply Tomazz. I have done every OTA update with all their WW firmware from asus website even in sequence but it still failed. I ever tried to do OTA update for my sister's zen5 with steps that you gave me before and sucessfully updated but mine still doesnt work. I read My zen5 box and it says A500CG, BLACK, WW-3G,D,16GGB EMMC+2GB RAM, CU-ANDROID,N/A,N/A. Based from that, is my zen5 is CU version? because I heard rumors that CU-ANDROID is terrible. If it true, what should i do? Is there any possibilities/ways that i could update for the latest firmware?

Amal, 18 Sep 2014I am using Zenfone 5 16 gb version for more than a month by now. As is already mentioned by mo... moreHey I had the same problem- not charging through USB and also the Charger. Thought the phone is faulty and applied for a refund. Switched off the phone and kept it for 24 hrs packed in the box for returning. Before sending I just checked once more by switching on the phone and connecting the Charger- and it started charging again !! No problem for past few days since that. I guess heating problem perhaps- switching off for several hrs restored it.
That is the price of having high capacity processor on a small gadget. The battery suffers for the large amount of power it consume. The heating is also caused by the high capacity processor just as it does with laptops.
I am using Zenfone 5 16 gb version for more than a month by now. As is already mentioned by most of the users my phone is also experiencing the quick battery drain issue. But as of now a more serious issue had came. Its not charging!!!. I tried factory reset but still the same issue. Till now I wasn't able to get an ASUS service centre.
