That won't work with same or older version.

Deepanker, 09 Oct 2014m getting lag while scrolling i just did through backup & ... moreOK, that are 2 different things.

The factory reset in settings only deletes the settings, but does not rebuild the partition.

The full reset is actually done like this:

- turn off the phone
- wait 10 seconds
- press power and volume down buttons at the same time and hold them
- the phone turns on into a DOS looklike
- release the buttons, and press volume up to confirm
- now choose Restore from Recovery Partition
- wait till it completes and reboots the phone

Let me know if you still have issues after that.

Good news!!! for Zenfone 5 owner, if you update your firmware to ASUS_T00F_WW_user_2.19.40.18_20141003_8008 you get battery drain issue fixed, and dont forget to update ZenUI from PlayStore for new experience, well done asus.
