Anonymous, 03 Sep 2014Guys i m planning to buy this phone bt what is rooting ??Imagine your computer at work. You login as a user, and can do some things, but for example you want to load an application, and you get an error message that this has been prevented by the policy of the administrator.
You are user. You are not the administrator.
Rooting basically gives you the top administrator's rights, so you can do whatever you want, install any apps from anywhere, change whatever you want.
Of course the moment you do that, the warranty from the producer is void, as fiddling with the internal memory or CPU under or overclocking, etc. can cause hardware failures as well.
Therefore this is for those who are familiar with Linux (on which Android is based) and want to tweak the system beyond what manufacturer limited users to.
Rooting is done fairly simply, by running an application which does it for you.
scha, 03 Sep 2014Hi..everything is working well except for messaging (sms). When i touched the messaging icon, ... moreUpdate firmware and apps.
Early firmware and apps, some 2 months ago, were not really ready for prime time, but hardware was done so it launched.
That's why there were several updates released after issues were reported by the users, and those have now been fixed.
Anything reported new is being resolved in the next version of firmware.
Manna, 03 Sep 2014Friends, Please reply me..dose Asus Zenfone 5 has " VIDEO CALLING" facilities or not... moreNo. Like most new phones there's no 3G video call functionality.
Only Skype, Line, Viber, etc. over the wifi or cellular data connection. Apart from connection costs (if any, you could use home wifi for example) such calls are free and quality depends on data network speed.
