DO NOT UPDATE TO ANDROID 10... *FOR NOW*

Now, I think I speak for the majority of us when I say that the latest update for the Zenfone 6 has completely ruined everything. I absolutely loved my Zenfone 6. I still do. I babied it to death and it kills me that the latest update from 11/25/2019 ruined so many things.

1. Battery consumption has massively increased. I used to get around 2 days on a single charge with Android 9 but now I barely get a day.

2. The camera quality has become so bad compared to how it used to be before. I upgraded to the Zenfone 6 from my old Zenfone 3 solely for the camera. It took stunningly beautiful pictures until I updated to Android 10 today. Now, all pictures look over exposed. There is also noticable lag when recording a video and taking pictures in general and all of this is just a huge let down. The camera has so much potential and I would hate to see it go down the toilet because of an update.

3. Not many people have mentioned this but, the microphone quality has also become very bad/quiet. I take many Snapchat videos with friends and etc and until now, the microphone was perfect. It would record everything loud and clear. When I played the video back, the sound was perfect and I could hear everything that was going on in the video. Ever since the latest update that I downloaded today, the microphone has become EXTREMELY quiet. Now, whenever I record a video with friends and have music playing in the back... I have to turn the music up and tell my friends to speak up so that I will be able to hear them in video. It's kinda embarrassing. This phone was amazing, and I know it still can be. Whatever you guys did in this update, I hope you guys and can fix it.

IMPORTANT

Please let me know if you have any idea when the next update from Fota will be released. I am hoping that the next update will fix and solve all of these issues.

  • We¨ve released two versions on Android 10.

    If you do not have huge concerns, you may try to reset your device - as that may solve some of the issues faced.


    Battery drain issues can be many different reasons - but some we found out so far from users is that some apps would get stuck in the background draining battery, root cause can be various but several users also reported doing a full update made it better vs. making the incremental FOTA update.


    We'll keep issuing updates and improve the experience!

  • For zenfone 5Z no one has got any FOTA in india its been 7 days since release of android 10 please take a look into zenfone 5Z discussion section as well many users are frustated but no one is there to help us out nor in old forum nor here only at the time of beta teasting u used to reply users why not after release also as android 10 is release why dont u open up 5Z DISCUSSION SECTION here as we users will get easy accesses to problem solutions from all u mods also INDIA ASUS posted socially everywhere that official android 10 is now available but non of the user got it via FOTA
