chriseano, 15 Sep 2014Hey guys, I need your help. I just received the Asus Zenfone5 from an online shopping site and... moreHard to tell whether this is a software or hardware issue.
Can you try to factory reset the phone to see if sound returns?
If it does, then something went wrong during the app updates or account restore.
Like in my case, once on the old phone I've turned Line notifications off. I didn't know it would save this to backup.
So when I got new phone, and long forgetting that notifications were turned off before, I couldn't get any notifications from Line. Uninstalled, reinstalled, to no avail.
Then I opened settings, and it was turned off… Darn!
I don't know what all is written in backup, and I am only adding this to give you something more to check where the issue could be coming from.
But you would really get the answer after factory reset - if speaker works again, it's something on the software/apps. If speaker does not work after the reset, then it's not.
Could be something as small as on one of the old phones setting the sound to go to bluetooth speakers...
My phone is not reading my sd card. anybody else is the same problem? any suggestion please
salihin, 15 Sep 2014why my asu s zenfone 5 has only 4gb rom
Total or available?
8 GB model has about 4.99 GB partition for your apps/data, while the other 3 GB is used by Android OS.
Is this what you mean?
Or is total eMMC only 4 GB? That would leave nearly no space for data or apps, so I find it hard to believe it would be the case...

It will depend on screen brightness, whether movie is in the phone or streamed, and if streamed, from 3G or Wifi, and in what format/resolution it is.
The best you can expect with dim screen, locally stored h264 native resolution file would be up to 9 hours. With medium brightness, wifi streamed, it would be 4-5 hours tops.

And previously you said zenfone has lithium ion polymer, did you mean li-po? or li-po with li-ion? Sorry for being stupid, i am just confused but still want to know about this matter. Thank you in advance.

Hey guys, I need your help. I just received the Asus Zenfone5 from an online shopping site and there's no sound coming from the speakers or the headphones either! After unboxing it, I watched a single YouTube video and picked some ringtones and sound was still okay but after a back up reset and installation of all asus app updates from play store, there's no sound from the speakers and the earphones!
