Less than a month after its last firmware update (to build, ASUS' Padfone 2 is getting another incremental bump. The Padfone 2, which we know as the turducken of the mobile world, already got Jelly Bean 4.1.1 in December, so updates hence have naturally focused on the usual performance, stability, and other enhancements. Today's update to build brings, among other things, new camera firmware, improved navigation, and a handful of optimizations. Here's the full change log.

FOTA Update release note for WWE (MR5 release):

  • Improved PadFone 2 & PadFone 2 Station performance and stability
  • Improved 3G/Wi-Fi connection and stability
  • Improved Garmin(TM) navigation system performance
