Hope Asus will solve the issue with the battery life of the zenfone 5 in it's 5.0 Upgrade
I got the lollipop update on fonepad FE170CG a week ago ... very fast, smooth ! I love asus ,, this wasn't expected for entry level device of 2014 !
because they are selling zenfone 2 and if they upgarde zenfone nobody will buy zenfone 2...
Asus should be more aware of the disappointing battery life of the zenfone 5 and should fix it in the 5.0 Upgrade
AnonD-390851, 21 May 2015They should also upgrade Zenfone 2 to the Lollipop 5.1, because it's struggling with battery life.really, even with 2 firmwares that boost the batery, weird
AnonD-397999, 21 May 2015I think its the chipset thats delaying the updates. Zenfone 5 A500KL got Lollipop because it h... moreNo that's not it, Zenfone 2 also uses Intel X86 CPUs, even some of the lower revision have identical internal specs to Zenfone 5.
I think its the chipset thats delaying the updates. Zenfone 5 A500KL got Lollipop because it had an ARM based processor (Snapdragon 400). While other phones are powered by x86 based Intel Atoms, which are not too conpatible with Android
They want to sell a lot of Zenfones 2 before those updates...classic marketing so don't be upset :-)
They should also upgrade Zenfone 2 to the Lollipop 5.1, because it's struggling with battery life.
Not a snapdragon 800. Its Intel Atom z2580 in Indian markets and snap400 for LTE in east Asia.
Because of overheating? Maybe with their lollipop software if they throttle it lags very bad and if they don't the phone becomes a stove.
Wait for ASUS ZenFone 5 updating the lollipop version...
Asus also need to focus on users of ZenFone 4,5 and 6.
What about the transfomer pad. Asus never talked about the tablets! The Asus Transformer Pad TF701T is a flagship tablet and no lollipop!!!!
It is 21st of May when the item was just posted. "mid-May" was several days, perhaps a week ago.
What the hell i still have to wait for the 5.Upgrade for my zenfone 5
asus is working and continuously working but not getting any solutions over problems.Asus had recently updated the zenfone 5 lte model but can't get the users the lollipop update in india.Other manufacturers like oneplus,samsung,nexus,motorola have released their lollipop previous year and asus is still working on updates.Hats of to you asus.
