Luke, 04 Sep 2014Tomaz Could you please tell me the benefits of updating my zenfone to kitkat..and how do i do ... moreIt should give you faster processing, less memory use, and longer battery life.
I say SHOULD, as I have not seen KitKat on Zenfone5 yet, but I've seen other models from Asus on JB and KK, and could compare performance before and after.
Of course KitKat also brings some security upgrades which will break some software that likes to snif around folders of other apps. It will still be able to steal data, but not modify it.
Anyway, file managers would be in trouble, mostly, unless they exploit a KitKat bug which still allows access… until it's patched.
Easiest way to update it is let phone do OTA update, or when available, download it from Asus, and drop into the phone, then wait for the update process to complete.
You can't just download stock KitKat from Google as it does not include drivers for this phone.
EXCELLENT PERFORMER-used a lot of mobiles including s3,mi3,grand etc, believe me i found asus zenfone 5 to be the best among all of them.its camera has some v good features, cam clarity is also worth mentioning.performance is totally lag free,any game runs smoothly,display is awesome, better than all 720p display phones-compared p11 also.Don.t think twice,its the best product in market at such a low price.

AnonD-296175, 03 Sep 2014Which are the hardware changes? I have a Chinese one and it is awesome! I changed without any ... moreThere are mostly different Wifi and cellular modems built-in. Which means you might end up with a set that does not support your 3G operator, or has limited or different set of Wifi channels.
Kind of like buying a Japanese FM radio receiver. It's all OK for 88-90 MHz stations, but anything from 90-108 MHz you might be out of luck.
The last bit are the certifications, the phones need to get certified to be used in the country by local telecommunications regulator, and manufacturers might have only gotten approval for the officially imported model, but not others.
Therefore it can be different hardware module, but not necessarily causing trouble, and there can be legal challenge of approvals, which limit devices to particular territories.
Loading WW firmware into CN phone with a different type of modem could result in inability to connect to network after update, as cellular board might be unsupported by driver. It is not recommended to do it, but if it works for you, great.

AnonD-300572, 03 Sep 2014Guys Iwant to know that im gonna buy an Asus Zenphone 5 (16gb/2gb)(not the LTE version)from ho... moreHmm make sure u go for original spec,don't ever buy the AP set for cheaper, cause in future you can't claim the warranty from any asus service centre, the phone performing pretty good but the only problem is battery , getting to heat when around 30-40 percentage ...so get it original and good spec, thank you
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2014hey buddy i want 2 buy this phone .....is it ok means i heard so much about this phone mostly ... moreYou heard mostly negative things!!!!!!!!!???
I think only negative you heard was battery , all other things are bull shit. Battery, in fact is also not a big problem, it performs well comparing to its powerful hardware and at this budget price. Some are are giving false or exaggerating comments without any logic. You can buy. Choice is always yours.
