Asus Zenfone 6, ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 4 are now being updated to Android Lollipop
Asus recently revealed that it's experiencing some issues with updating its 2014 ZenFone smartphones to Android Lollipop. Thankfully, those issues have been resolved, and today Asus started rolling out the promised updates to the ZenFone 4, ZenFone 5, and ZenFone 6.

While Asus is pushing the updates over the air (in phases) to all three ZenFone models, users can also manually download the necessary files. Asus notes that Android Lollipop doesn't support some of the apps pre-installed on its smartphones, so these will be removed when the update is complete. At the same time, other apps will be added in the system update. You can see all the changes, and download the system update files at the source links found at the end of this article.

Released in early 2014, the ZenFone 4, ZenFone 5, and ZenFone 6 are still available to buy around the world, despite the fact that this year Asus introduced its second-generation family of ZenFone handsets, including the ZenFone 2, ZenFone Zoom, and, more recently, the ZenFone Selfie. All the Asus smartphones introduced this year are running Android Lollipop out of the box.

Asus is also planning to bring Android Lollipop to two tablets: the PadFone S, and the PadFone Infinity 2. Both should get the update sometime later this year.

Not bad. Now if only my MeMo Pad 7 (ME176CX) would get some Lollipop love. I've been hearing that the upgrade has been on the way out for some users, but I'm still sitting on an earlier firmware. Either way, it's good to see ASUS giving updates to their most recent devices. Definitely a company that's making an impact.

Should be a good relief for owners. Now petition more actively for Asus + Intel to get their s**t together for better 3rd devs support.

Asus phones are very low category phone . If you use for more then average time its speaker heat so much you can not keep it near to ear. It is ok but very poor service in India . No proper control over service . Customer has to suffer every time for getting the service .Very poor service Pickup and repair service .No proper trained engineers to even understand the problems. each people try to consume the time so that warranty period expire soon . I was suffering the same problem from last 12 months to get the soon try to contact every level executives of the Asus but no buddy wants to give the proper service . Tried to show the problem for this I have talked approx. 50 hours approx. 50 people of Asus service center but not get the solution. At last service center Indore people damaged my phone's screen so that next time I can not say any thing .. Never go for Asus

I purchased this phone due to brand name ASUS , but now I am realizing that I was wrong I am from small district Ratlam (m.P.) but at the time of purchasing the phone I got the assurance of Pickup and repair facility . But Asus tie up with Blue dart courier service , but blue dart service is also so poor those people always tried that customer himself to reach their office and drop the parcel . Very poor phone as well as very poor service . Never go for this brand Manish jain Ratlam (M.P.)-India
