Asus starts rolling out KitKat update for the Zenfone 5 and the Zenfone 6

Asus has been doing pretty well in the Indian smartphone market, courtesy of its affordable Zenfone line-up of Android smartphones which were launched in July. The Zenfone 4, Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 6 were launched with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean onboard and were promised the Android 4.4 KitKat update. Looks like Asus has just started fulfilling its promise as the Android 4.4 KitKat update has started rolling out to the Zenfone 5 and the Zenfone 6. The update comes right after they pushed the Android 4.4 update to the Zenfone 4. If you were wondering about the Zenfone 4 A450CG, it already came with Android KitKat onboard.

In addition to the regular Android 4.4 KitKat goodies, you’ll get a wide array of software functionalities such as Do-Not-Disturb mode, call blocking and a complete standby for the dual-SIM variants. The camera gets upgraded with digital image stabilisation. The update also brings with it the Asus Extended Easy Mode which features contacts, call log, dialler and messaging apps with better reading ability.

The update is available as an OTA update and is 456MB in size. The Zenfone 4 update was available in India right after the global roll out began so be sure to check your device for software updates. There is no word from Asus on the Android L update for its smartphones though. On the other hand, Motorola has already promised Android L update to most of its phones including the Moto X (2013), the Moto G (2013), the Moto X (2014), and the Moto G (2014)

Hi,
Have you tried restarting it after the update? or have you shut it down? Try this. i got this problem just once or twice, but it wasn’t an update issue. If you shut down your phone, keep it for at least 5 mins. Then see.
