Using this phone from last 1 week. SAR value is 2.0W/KG which is very high. Feeling pain in both the ears from last 7 days only. Every one is just checking the features not the side effects of SAR value.This is too high. SAR value which is mentioned on website is not correct. on the box it is 2.0W/kG.
I want back ground theme with every page like a msg and menus ,,,how

Gabby Perez, 28 Aug 2014Great phone been using it for a month now.. did root just had a problem about the internal mem... moreChoose to install apps on SD card. If you already installed them to internal memory, go to Settings, Apps, slide screen to the left to see MOVEABLE at the top, select them and move them to SD card. I recommend you get class 10 SD card.
In camera you can also set the folder to save photos/videos to SD card.
Many other apps also allow that. But not all. Some apps can't run from SD.
naren, 28 Aug 2014i am not able to see the icon in quick setting mode the one handed mode option in asus zenfon... moreNot sure I understand the question, but if you swipe down the screen from left corner, you get notifications, and if you swipe down from right corner, you get the quick settings.
You can turn these on and off inside the Settings - what to display and what not, under Asus customized settings, then Quick settings options.
amit jain, 28 Aug 2014Very nice phone,amazing camera.
Thanks asus for such a nice phone @rs 10,000.Many many people... moreSomeone a page back was saying he bought one for his girlfriend and it has a very crappy camera and very good battery.
I guess we don't agree with him much...
rals, 28 Aug 2014planing to buy this gadget ,get confused after reading its having a chineese version tooo . no... moreBuy it from shop that's selling legally imported stuff to your country.
Avoid eBay and Amazon, or any shady sellers.
If you are buying in a shop, check the back of the box, there is a sticker there and it should read A501CG and NOT A500CG. In small letters below, where it shows how much RAM and eMMC (flash memory) it has, it should show WWE-ANDROID.
That is an international version.
I would also recommend that you go for 2 GB RAM model, and if price is same as 8 GB, for the 16 GB eMMC model.
Avoid 1 GB RAM models. Or anything that does not have Intel logo PRINTED at the back plate, as there are also models that have an intel sticker at the back.
Most likely that are very early or Chinese models.
Very nice phone,amazing camera.
Thanks asus for such a nice phone @rs 10,000.Many many people have bought this seeing impressive performance of my phone.Asus saved atleast rs 20,000 of mine.

luke, 28 Aug 2014Prasad can you please tell me how to shift from 3G to 2g and visa verse...please suggest
Just Dial *#*#4636#*#*
Then Open "Phone Information"
Then on the bottom there will be option
WCDMA Preferred, WCDMA only, GSM only, GSM preferred....etc
WCDMA preferred: auto 3g means it will convert to 2g if it don't get that minimum 3g signal,
WCDMA only: It will always choose 3g

That said, you still have WW-3G modem, which could work everywhere.
But A500CG is surely a Chinese model, as international model is A501CG, and has TOOJ and not TOOF code.
Now, what you can TRY to do, if you can't return it, is to download this firmware file:
Plug the phone into your computer, and open Computer to see the disk drives and devices - double click on phone, and then on internal memory "drive" icon inside.
Unzip downloaded file into the main (root) folder of that Internal memory.
You should get notified that there's update waiting once copy finishes and you unplug the cable from computer.
Hope that allows you to turn it into WW Android model.
But please! I do NOT give any warranties on whether this will work. You might be told that file isn't compatible. Or it might install it and fail to work later.
In that case you might need to get recovery access (just pressing 3 buttons on power-on) and load the software with a rooting tool from your laptop.
I hope it works out for you.
