    All those features you asked for, they won't be available to stock android platform since Google limits stock android OEMs to provide those features. If you want those features, you need to go for ZenUI phones from Asus. Stock UI phones must have to comply with Google's GMS policies.

    I would like to point out that Split screen feature is already available just lacks the gesture to activate it directly.

    You can access to it through recent screen and by pressing on the app icon.

    Your features suggestions are solid. However we can't do anything as it's a stick android limitation and Google Monopoly.

    ThirdParty Apps (or Rooting, Xposed for enabling some native features) is our only choice to access these technical features.

  • Split screen functionality was present in Android 9 but it's not present in Android 10. Can you please share video how to do split screen in Android 10

    Actually, Internet speed indicator, Guest mode and split screen functionalities are available in android 9 but it's not present in android 10.

    For other features, Like: Call Recording & Gallery atleast you can provide the support for your official apps of Asus, so we can install it later if we want. Actually, I tried to install official asus gallery app but, it's compatibility issues.

  • Actually, Split screen, Guest mode and Internet speed indicator is in-built available for Android 9 but it's not available for Android 10.

    For other features like: Game mode i can understand but atleast you can provide app of Gallery & Call recording, like 3rd party which is compatible so we can install it later if we want.. because I tried with most of all 3rd party app for call recording and Gallery but most of have different issues and some doesn't have required functionalities..

    Call recording apps need microphone permission to record the call conversation but Google won't let 2 apps to use microphone at the same time. Since during call, your Phone app uses the microphone, then 3rd party call recorder apps won't be able to access the microphone at the same time the call is going. Thats why call recorder apps don't work on stock android phones.

    Similarly, if you use any screen recorder app to record something like any gameplay where you could interact with your teammates like in PUBG, you can only record either the game sounds or your own voice. You can not record everything like gameplay sounds as well as your own voice and your teammates voices.

    And about Gallery, you may try installing Asus zenUI Gallery by downloading the apk. But Google don't let OEMs to provide their own Gallery apps just because Google wants users to use Google Photos app so that their own Google Photos app gets promoted.

    Don't know bro what's wrong for you. I'm using Android 10 on the same model as yours. It's showing for me as you can see below:

    I'm doing it the same way (recent screen method) I used to do in Pie. Are you implying that your way of doing was something different?

    We never had inbuilt net speed indicator or guest mode unless you were on some custom rom or rooted.

    And about Gallery you may use Simple Gallery from playstore. I'm using it and found it the pretty neat, light and simple with good functions.

    Asus Gallery was best though but it doesn't work for A10 sadly.

  • Hi there, we have made a note of the feedback and will share it with the relevant team.
