RAJ, 27 Aug 2014 zenfone 5 and moto g which is the best fone
They are both budget phones with good and bad sides.
Both are of better value than anything you'll get from the big names.

AnonD-292829, 27 Aug 2014It is hosted in the website fota.asus.com/....Sorry, I did not realise you got it from there.
I thought you got it from the Asus Support downloads site.
Anyway, I've loaded full files for you, and I tried to install only these files in my tests, I did not use any files from fota.
Please wait for next firmware to be released as a full firmware file, and update to that. It should include all previous fixes.
please help to disable the stupid auto update. the phone keep updating all my apps. how to disable it? i couldn't find how to disble it on the settings menu.
AnonD-291211, 27 Aug 2014When you update from your phone through fota, you will get only the update files not whole firmware.That I know, but the file usually gets deleted after update, so I guess the gentleman copied it out of the phone before installing it.
Actually, without rooting, without installing anything… wait for 1.18 firmware, due out soon, download it from Asus.com (I'll also put it on my server when I notice it), and install that - the full 700 MB file. And it should get it completely updated, then it won't matter what firmware was installed earlier or what was missing as whole OS is getting reinstalled.

As both my SIMs are 3G (although internet is chosen from SIM 1), and when using them a few hours a day, the battery lasts me 2 days.
That's including sync to 3 email accounts, Line, FB, WhatsApp, and sometimes forgetting to logout from Skype… so it stays on. Power setting is on default. Screen is on default.
I use it for reading news, emails, talk on Line usually, making calls, taking photos and sending them via Line, uploading stuff to FB and reading the updates.
I'd say 3-4 hours a day for battery to last from 7 am on day 1 to 10 pm of the next day with 10-30% remaining.

Use 2g only data for getting notification for mail, facebook,whatsapp, etc and change to 3G when you really need a faster connection if you are on mobile data. This way your battery will last more than a day(24 hours). If you are a heavy user then keep a power bank with you which is same for all smartphones. For me battery back up is fine.
People, don't ask about battery again, It's a history now.
Pooja, 27 Aug 2014Hi Prasad,
I'd love to buy Zenfone5 because is much better then lenovo and around 4-5K chea... moreThere are many Indian tourists coming to Bangkok and usually shop around my area, so if you know someone on the way here, ask him to get it for you.
It is 5990 THB for (any colour that's available) Zenfone 5, 16 GB, 2 GB RAM, 3G, Dual SIM, WW version.
I don't know how safe it is shipping it to you… greedy customs or post officers, possibly on both sides, else I'd ship it to you.
You can always check the prices from jaymart.co.th. Fortunetown branch usually has the biggest stock.
Anand, 27 Aug 2014Pls help me whether to buy zenfone5 or motog and which one is best? Compare both phones specification, and looks. Then take a decision whether you want a smaller size or Bigger size. If you are a user of stock android then you will experience nice change in Zenfone 5 compared to boring stock android of Moto G. Thats all i can say. Choice is always yours.
affy, 27 Aug 2014i am using the zenfone 5..the battery life is very poor..even though i'm not playin any games ... moreWhich version of firmware do you have?
What services do you have enabled?
What do you do with it?
Maybe we can start to find out what's going on from there...
ram, 27 Aug 2014how to improve batery life time & working hours per charging & use of battery saverSame as every other phone. Disable unnecessary connectivity, lower screen brightness, enable saving mode, close background tasks, update firmware to one with better power management, or install the greenify app, which does much of the above for you automatically.
Or get a power bank.
