hafiz, 06 Sep 2014that's right. the standby processor at 800mhz. it will drain the battery.Gentelmen,
I have a difference in opinion about the power state getting discussed here.
In this processor we have power states C0 to C3 for various power states and P0(800Mz) to Pn(maximum being 1600Mzh) for the frequency state.
So wheneever none of the process in Android(irrespective of the processor architecture in which it is working) holding wake lock,it will put the processor in in the power down states and based on "deep sleepness" the processor will go to C3 or C2 or whichver application.In ARM world it's going to be like Runmode ,Standby mode etc
But I guess the difference lies in the fact the in the power down mode,as a SoC,how much areas/peripherals you can shut down?Say in Intel being C3 you may have capability shutdown only 2 peripherals and being ARMV7,in the standby mode,your architecture can shutdown 5 peripherals which will be giving you extra power saying.
Let me know your thoughts.
I am using this phone form 2 month
And not facing any internal problem.
But facing touch screen problem
I bought zenfone 5 form retailer in kolkata.
After using for 1 month my phone touch screen got small crack due to short.fall.
And after 1 month 10 days i am noticing scratches on my screen without any reason as i m using safely and let you know that i am not using any screen protector
But this should not happen as it has gorilla glass 3.
According to me it is not gorilla glass,or my.phone glass is like this which can gat crack and scratches
I am very upset with the glass quality.of my zenfone
This phone is great, almost a week usage and yes the battery is not that good but it last a day for me since I'm busy with school.
But I have some question guys do your Zenfone 5 can read and write Korean? And is it normal when my ZF5 is rooted already.. Mine is 1.13.40 can't do OTA eventhough it is T00J ver.
If you guys didn't face those problems then I'm out of my luck since I bought it with distributor warranty :/
Please help me to answer so I can ask help from the distributor.. thank you..
please say me how can chang color of mobail opereter on top of at screen.
No doubt Asus Zenfone5 is amazing phone. I got this on 15th July14 and i loaded double extra apps then required. Still it performed without hanging device. But one thing I could not cleared that how to make video calls by this device ? Can somebody clear the problem, becoz rarely but sometimes i desperately need video calling.
I just want to know, is it dangerous to use phone during charging...
hi there, i've seen zenfone 5 and i'm very disappointed regarding its brightness levels and the speaker sound of it. i've also watched a video in youtube comparision of brightness levels of moto g and zenfone 5 and i got really shocked looking the brightness difference of these. moto g's brightness was 25 comparable to zenfone's 40. And at highest brightness zenfone will definitely go lost somewhere. so , is there any solution for this brightness of zenfone ? if so , please help me out. thanks
Virus777, 04 Sep 2014yes it does.

It would help save significant power when the device's in idle mode. The problem is the battery drain during use. For example, if I browse through the internet on JB for about 10 mins and it takes 3% on the battery life, does it mean kitkat can reduce this time to a much slower value? Plus, will RAM usage also affects the battery life? I think it could. Thank you for the answers! They're sincerely appreciated.
Al, 06 Sep 2014Thanks for the answer! I get what you're saying but is it really sure that battery lifespan wi... moreKitKat has optimisation for the CPU included. This means that it can throttle the speed of the CPU, and put it in idle when it's not using it. JellyBean doesn't do that.
Atom is never idle on JellyBean. It's always running at at least 800 MHz. It's burning power whether it's doing anything or not.
KitKat should improve on that, and be able to throttle it down whenever it doesn't need it temporarily, thus saving energy.
Then there's RAM use. JellyBean is a real memory hog, and it's using far more memory than it should. Imagine Windows Vista.
KitKat on the other hand manages and releases memory far better, using less of it, allowing more apps to run at the same time, run smoother and faster.
So a firmware can make some difference, and on the other phones that upgraded I have seen a pretty significant difference in performance, but of course I can't say how much of an impact it would have on ZenFone, having not seen it run on KitKat yet.
So remaining cautiously optimistic.
hms, 06 Sep 2014hey guys am planning to purchase asus zenfone 5 but i heard some issues about battery, even li... moreSpeaker could be louder, but I just used it in a fairly… read that very bloody noisy place… and had a conversation with another person also using ZF5, and while I won't say it was very loud, it was clear.
There's an app I used to use on HTC before, a free one, to increase volume, the logo was equaliser… try searching for it. I've never used it on Zen but it did make big difference on HTC which was also on the quiet side.
As for outside speaker - it's OK in quiet or mildly noisy place, but it's not going to replace your company conference phone.
So I'd say it's reasonable, but much quieter than Sony Z2 and Oppo Find 7, which could replace a stereo.
As for battery - it's comparable to many other smartphones out there, many of them costing a lot more, so I think it's far more excusable on ZenFone for 200$ than it is on 1000$ iPhone 5s. If you're worried, get a small power bank, if you're planning to use it a lot or go somewhere for a few days.
Last bit - 2.5A chargers (like that of Samsung Galaxy Note II - 10$ on eBay for original one, incl. shipping) charge the phone at about double the speed of the original charger. I've actually never even removed original charger or cable from the box. Use Samsung's one all the time.
Pooja, 06 Sep 2014So finally ive got my Zeonfone 5 8GB, haven't used much, but Apps is crashing on all 3 phones,... moreOn 1.14 firmware which was the original firmware on the phone when I got it, the Whats Next was crashing constantly. But not anything else, that I remember.
However from 1.16 I believe, I have not seen a crash on my phone. Or hang. Or any other issue.
Try to do a factory reset which should reload firmware from recovery partition.
See if that fixes it. Or load 1.18 from Asus or from my server (the full near 700 MB file) and manually update it.
That's the firmware I am using and have 0 problems with the phone.
