[deleted post]Be careful with this phone in India. Check what LTE band your telecoms are using and make sure this phone supports it.
A500KL is for EMEA market, so Europe, Middle East and Africa, and if your operators don't use same standards as these territories, your phone might not work on 4G networks in India.
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2014Hey Tomazz... Plz tell me what is the difference between
Asus Zenfone 5 A500KL and Asus Zenf... moreA501CG is using Dual core Atom HT processor and has dual SIM, supports 3G. It is available in 8 and 16 GB versions.
A500KL is using Quad code ARM processor, has usually single SIM, and 4G LTE. It is available in 16 and 32 GB versions.
After using both asus zenfone 5 and mi3 for a week i found zenfone 5 to be more value for money,it is more user friendly.interface is so beautiful.Although mi3 is a monster in performance but i liked zenfone5 more.
Hey Tomazz... Plz tell me what is the difference between
Asus Zenfone 5 A500KL and Asus Zenfone 5 A501CG ??
This is a great phone for its price. Camera is not that bad when you are in a good light condition apparently when capturing a dark area wherein you can't see anything it will give you a huge disappointment. The graphics are great though.
celestina, 01 Sep 2014Hi
In 1 of yr reply to reader you mentioned to resolve problem of the battery life is to Upgr... moreTo check current firmware, tap Settings, then About (last one) and then System Update (first one).
To update, tap on CHECK UPDATE.
Alternatively, download 1.17.40 from Asus support site or my site (if your phone is having WW firmware), and unzip the file, then plug the phone to your computer and place that unzipped file to your root folder of the phone's internal memory.
Note your phone must be set to MTP. To check, open Settings, then tap on STORAGE, then on the USB logo top right of the screen. Enable MEDIA DEVICE (MTP) and NOT Camera device.
Anyway, once you've copied it, unplug the cable, scroll down notifications (from left top corner scroll down), tap on New update is available, and install it.

As for the screen, don't throw it around and you'll be fine.
If you're concerned, get 9H glass protector for the screen and a power bank.
