Finally after being delayed on its supposed arrival, the ASUS ZenFone 4, ZenFone 5, and ZenFone 6 will now be getting its Android Lollipop fix. The update includes improvements, additions, and even some removals.



The changes for the new OS update are as follows:

  • Removal of pre-installed apps like battery widget, PhotoFrame widget, Movie Studio, Cloud Print, CMClient, and Magic Smoke Wallpapers
  • New lockscreen with removed standalone wallpaper and weather details
  • Revamped Dialler and Contacts
  • Removal of in-call animation and cover
  • Addition of My Ocean wallpaper
  • Day Scene Live Wallpaper
  • TripAdvisor
  • ASUS auto-start service manager app
  • Improved VOIP phone call and music function

The updates were reported to be already available via over-the-air, but it’s also downloadable over at the official ASUS ZenTalk forum.

    Zenfone 5 user here. Have updated two days ago. Make sure to check your firmware build first and follow the instructions. Once done with the update, it is important to perform a factory reset and clear cache via Recovery mode. Experiencing some apps force closing, some apps not loading, FB hangs or lags. Also perform hard reset to facilitate apps optimization process.
