Hi guys.
I bought this phone yesterday. Besides all the errors you said mine has the "Read Contacts" error which was really driving me crazy. By searching the asus and other website I noticed on 26th June there has been an update released regarding mentioned issues.
Here is the way I solved all the problems:
Log on to this link, and download the version compatible with your own firmware. Mine was TOOJ. As you will see after download and extracting the zip file it is for the TOOF version. Simply change F to J and it works, promise.
And you will see an upright notification indicating that there is an update available. Do not miss this opportunity and just click on it and follow the direction. It will be rebooted by Android logo and all the mentioned problems and issues will be solved.
Have nice time and happy Ramadhan to my Muslim friends.

Is that 2ghz n 2 gb ram are (ap) set in Malaysia??
how about 1.6ghz n 1gb ram (ori) set on malaysia??
it can run rr3.. n modern combat 4.. smoothly on both phone??

i not turning on.. bluethoot.. gps.. and all features but sync always on and i not everytime playing game.. if i play only a 30 minutes.. brightness only 50% below..

if i use 1.6ghz.. it will drain fast the battery???
n if i use 2.0ghz it same like 1.6 version?? Drain fast??

I rarely using.. all the function.. but wifi always use at home while i use packet data when i going out.. i turn it on if i want to look social apps.. n after a few minutes.. i will torn it off back..

If that style of use daily.. how long the battery can stay without charged??? It same like galaxy core??

Right now i use galaxy core duos.. battery can stay a day if i turning on wifi all day in my house.. n sometime i turning on packet data if i going out..
At the tonigh.. i must charge it.. brighness allways use below 50%
