Question about Zenfone 5Z vs Zenfone 6 AUDIO

I've owned the Zenfone 5Z for a while now, and although the phone altogether is fantastic, a huge issue I've had is audio volume, whether I'm using a wired 3.5mm connection, or Bluetooth. Over Bluetooth it puts nearly half the volume that my Pixel 2 did, or any other phone I've used. Especially frustrating with wireless earbuds.

If anyone has owned a 5Z, experienced this same thing, and has upgraded to a Zenfone 6, or ROG 2, has this been resolved?

The audio quality itself is pretty top notch, and the phones performance is my favorite I've owned, but this is a big enough issue to stop me from spending the money to upgrade to another Asus phone if this hasn't been addressed.

If there's something I can do to fix this on my current phone, please let me know. I've tried to finagle Audio Wizard, and the closest I can get is ramping up all the frequency boosters in the equalizer, but this is still not sufficient.


  • In Android 8 5Z was loudest of all in A9 it certainly degraded n in A10 we dont even feel that once we had a louder speakers phone nd i personally also observed stereo effect on speaker has gone from gr8 to worse in A10 but also some users are recently saying that after cleaning there speakers from service centre n clearing dust helped them again to boost up volume a bit

    And also personally feel this is a delebrate gimmick to gain attention towards latest falgships from asus coz i know still 5Z cn beat various flagships in many aspects n asus want to sell there new flagships with no doubt so we as a users hve to compromise sowhere here n there 😜 hope u understand 🤪

  • In my comparison of 5z VS ZenFone 6, there's no major difference in either speaker or headphone volume or sound quality. It's slightly better on ZenFone 6 but it's so small you can only notice it if you have both devices at hand.
