Stan, 10 Aug 2014This model has kitkat so yes you can transfer apps to sd cardCould you please help me how to transfer the apps to sd card? please give me step by step.
Thanks in advance.
I am using this phone from last few weeks. I just love it. Anyone planning to buy this one, dont think anymore.. just buy it but please do remember you are spending only 10k here in India.
GUI and Software: splendid work on GUI. ZenUi is the best skin I knew and used over Android OS. I just love the way the fonts and colors are used on this phone giving it a premium look. Installed apps are just fine. Waiting for the KITKAT update.
Hardware: nothing to say, the phone says it all. Superb performance ... superb speed, superb touch and display.
Camera performance is just fabulous.
I am still evaluating all centimeter of it. I just can not say in words how I love this device being mine. I bought one more after sometime.
Headphone wire length is less but good quality. I am loving it.
Few things though can be worked upon by Asus. Display brightness. It is really low but ways available to increase and control it.
Battery back up is a note for all. Do not expect much if you are a power user. keep a back up if roaming.
Builtin speaker is not that good and loud but I think these speakers are not made for others listening the device from far.
The Asus flip cover is a bit concern looking at the price tag. It is heavily priced. Better you all go for a 3rd party on this.
Asus after sales service is also okay. The email support is fine. I am very surprised the way Asus is regularly seeding a system update.
Overall, I am loving it. I am loving it.
Do reply if you need to know anything on this device.
If your device glass is broken can cost you half the price of device for repair... Alert before you purchase the device zenfone 5.
