It happened to my phone after I went online it automatically upgraded the firmware to version 220.127.116.11 and everything went sour it wont even last a day even when im not using it. I read that you can download battery extender apps to correct the bug from the firmware upgrade. I hope it helps. mine was 2 days old so I got it replaced and turned off the auto update

Some apps are written properly, so they can run and store data on SD card.
But there are some that can't be copied off the internal storage, or cannot write data onto SD card, even though they can run off SD card themselves.
It really completely depends on the app itself.
Both the phone and the OS support it, though. In Jelly Bean and in KitKat version.

I haven't heard of anyone having issues with it, as it's far less dangerous than doing an upgrade, since OS is already there, just needs to be reinstalled.
Restore does fix many things, from hangs to battery drain to cleaning up after rogue apps.
Still, I would recommend you to do a firmware upgrade when you are done, and consider restore like… like reinstalling Windows when it slows down and starts acting up.

But it does not otherwise show in the top bar.

Anonymous, 13 Sep 2014How can i upgrade Android version to kitkat 4.4.2 in this phoneplease go to gallary and upgrade
Good news for zenfone 5 users.
ASUS says Zenfone 5 KitKat update in final testing phase, Android L update confirmed.
so zenfone 5 will get Andriod L too.
Hey Tomazz, will you upload the screenshot of how your homescreen looks when Optimized Mode is on? Is there an icon for the optimized mode in the status bar?
