AnonD-292696, 10 Aug 2014does the Asus Zenfone 5 supports LTE because in some reviews,they say it does supports LTEThere are (at least) 2 different versions of the ZenFone 5. There is one that's discussed here, which is 3G only, has dual SIMs, 8 pr 16 GB flash, and 1 or 2 GB RAM.
Then there is A500KL version (see menu on the right), which is a single SIM phone (although there would be some dual SIM models available, mostly for Africa), with 8, 16 or 32 GB flash, 1 or 2 GB RAM and LTE support.
From what I am aware, the A500KL is targeted for European / EMEA market, and you should read very carefully what LTE channel and frequency your mobile operator is using, to make sure it's supported.
It should have already been released, although I have not seen it for sale anywhere yet.
AnonD-292829, 10 Aug 2014Hello Tomazz,
You made my day by suggesting the Motorola LED widget.
Invariably ,for me ,as ... moreI tried it because it was suggested by someone in here.
It didn't work, though, as at that time I've just updated to 1.15 firmware, and it seemed completely broken.
I left it in there and just tested 2 days ago after 2 more updates and was surprised it worked again.
On original firmware that came with the phone, and I've no idea what it was, the LED worked without having to be turned on via widget...
drg, 10 Aug 2014hey i am using zenphone now...can u please tell how can i upgrade my phone to android kit kat???You cannot upgrade it yourself, and it does not exist yet.
When Asus is done with the KitKat upgrade, it will be sent to you over the air, and you'll see a notification that an upgrade is available, asking you whether you want to install it.
It may be some months off, though...

You made my day by suggesting the Motorola LED widget.
Invariably ,for me ,as soon as I do a complete factory reset or install the complete the firmware package,
the lED works for almost close to 24 hrs for the missed call and texts.
But after that ,not sure it's because of GoSMS interfererence with the LED settings,the light stops working.
Even if I uninstall the GoSMS,the LED won't start working.
(I guess this is something do with data stored in the /data partition and not sure which is the file or directoty is causing the problem.May be this is why
a factory reset is making led work as we have complete format of /data partition is happening as that process)
Any-case with the Motorola LED ,I see the results are really promising.
But how on earth You got a wild thought to test an application that specifically written for a different device?!!
Gaming phone good GUI.gorilla screen is awesome HD video super. Better battery back up for one day for 3G usage. Camera is worst 8megapixels but it's like normal 1.3 megapixels. Ringer volume is very low.

I doubt it would be true for others as well.
So far I have not seen an app that worked on Samsung Note II (ARM) but would not work on ZenFone 5 (Atom).

I have been using this phone for a week . I love this phone so much . The performance is good, scrren is clear , camera is good with this range price. Only battery is disappoint but acceptable. Finally, I recommend u guy use this phone .
I like zenfone 5 i have experience lots of phones from samsung s5, nexus 5, htc one x, iphone 5s and sony z3... but zenfone 5 can compete to those high end phones from gaming, surfing, taking pictures with high resolution and multi tasking... of all the phone I had experience with only these phone I can say my money was not a waste...
Hi , I bought zenfone 5 few days ago ....everything is k , but I can't connect mobile internet ......can anyone plz tell me how to use mobile internet in zenfone 5 .......
It says that due to its x86 architecture this phone does not support some apps like facebook.Is is true?
In continuation of the LED notification issue some of the things I realized that,if you are installing the whole package of 220.127.116.11(not the update from 18.104.22.168) ,I see the LED’s working are more stable.,
However for SMS,if we disable stock SMS application and rely on application like GoSMS,then LEDwon’t blink.
For sure,the stock SMS has to be enabled(All these while in I was able to use only Go SMS alone )
Another positive note I see is the Bluetooth becoming more stable.I used to enable Bluetooth when a call comes or I dial a number(Using Tasker application).So more of the time I was getting “Bluetooth Share has force closed”.Now looks like that is gone.
Overall l,A sus is certainly moving in a positive direction …..
does the Asus Zenfone 5 supports LTE because in some reviews,they say it does supports LTE
Guys can you comment on the battery life WITH THE LATEST firmware from asus? Specifcly the one that "fixes" the battery drain.
On the latest firmware how much screen time can you get with(out) 3G and with moderate usage (sms+web+some app)? And overall time will it last at least 24hours with moderate usage?
