I would like to thanks asus, for providing android 10 beta 3 for max pro m1. I had updated my device today morning and using it since 5 hrs. Belive me or not my experience is amazing. This beta 3 is very close to the stable update. Many bugs are fixed in this update.

1) very important, pubg can be run in hd graphics and high frame rates ( thank you asus)

2) pubg experience was very smooth. I had played in smooth+ high settings.

3) After 1hr of gaming my battery drain was only 14%. It was amazing, battery backup felt to be good.

4) Sound from speaker is very loud. Asus has done impressive work in terms of sound quality (thanks again).

5) I didn't notice any lagg after updating my device.

I think this update is close to the stable one. I will post my full review after using it properly.

Thank you Asus....


  • Wow thank you very much for the information

  • This is my initial impressions. Wait for my final review. Every time initial impressions was good but bugs can be seen after using it for long..And remember that my device is only 6 months older..

  • Bad sound quality through earphones in android 10 beta 3

  • Neither bad nor good. Sound quality through earphones is very flat but the sound quality is ok for me. I do not use to listen music too much..

  • I will test them and will post in long term review..

  • Being on beta 2, can we upgrade to beta 3?

  • Stable se update karne me data format ho jayega? Reply

    Olá, boa tarde!

    Na tela do meu celular está aparecendo um pedido de atualização do sistema.

    Lendo os comentários aqui, vi muitas pessoas desconfiada com essa atualização. Isso me gerou uma certa preocupação em atualizar e acabar não gostando por possíveis falhas dessa suposta nova atualização.

    Gostaria de uma opinião clara e objetiva de alguém que entenda ou até mesmo da própria ASUS sobre essa nova atualização.

    1 - É oficial e estável?

    2 - Quais problemas posso ter com o consumo de memória e bateria?

    3 - É recomendável atualizar agora ou devo esperar uma outra nova atualização? (Isso se tiver rs)

    Vejo vocês falando sobre o termo "Beta" nos comentários e não entendo nada disso. Sou leigo no assunto.

    Tenho medo de atualizar e acabar não gostando devido a possíveis travamentos ou até aquecimento da bateria.

    Se alguém puder me ajudar, agradeço!


    Minha versão instalada é a: OPMI.WW_Phone-15.2016.1902.340-20190216

    Nem sei se é a versão estável oficial ou beta a que tenho instalada. Só sei que gosto do jeito que tá e é por isso que estou com medo de atualizar e acabar não gostando.


  • Don't know, i was in 082. I will not suggest you to update. Ideal drain is too much.

  • Data format Ho jayega. Backup le lena. Do not update. Wait for stable ota update. Ideal drain in beta 3 is too much..

  • Please Focus on this Issue/Bug, that it continuously repeating from Android pie of version WW_16.2017.1912.060 to Present Android 10, and why it can't gone or why you can't solve it, that without I use that application, when I reboot my device it shows "Downloading" Notification, that I can't kept anything download.Now/Present this is Happening in My device of version Android 10 Beta 3 of WW_17.2017.2006.429, and also don't give any trouble shooting steps just fix it. And Last my Opinion is that some apps are running in background silently like this and ony out of 100, Only 1% of me is observed.

  • They don't give call recording feature


  • Version WW-17.2017.2006.429

    The above mentioned version had been updated

    But the thing is Battery Is draining to early.

    And when I'm talking to someone one call waiting alert will be like calling ring so kindly resolve this two issues.

    Thank you

  • Sound QUALITY IS SHIT. I tried BETA1 - poore sound, v82pie - best sound, beta3 - shittiest crackling sound.

  • Actually this update is basically meant for 3gb/32gb variant of max pro m1.

    In other two variants it shows certain problems like bad sound, poor camera quality, call recording etc.

    In 3gb variant it works fine and I am quite happy to install this update.

    But main problem is root, I don't think so that after installing this update you can root. To do so, you have to downgrade.

    Otherwise, there is no fault in this update and everything works smoothly. If you are a anxious person and want to try something on you set then don't upgrade it.

  • You have no issues with the sound?

    Sound is terrible on 429 (3,32) variant. Just shifted from 82 to 429.

    Sound changed from best to worst. Shallow.

    As if an outdated sound driver is being used.

    Volume Controls are all over the place. 82 was very stable. 429 is good except for sound and volume control of media.

    1. Model Name: Asus Zenfone Max Pro m1 (4GB, 64GB)
    2. Firmware Version: (QKQ1.WW_Phone-17.2017.2006.429)

    5. APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app):

    The major problems after this update are:

    1) The battery drains so fast. Full charge to empty is just 5 hrs with only browsing & email usage.

    2) very slow charging. I used 2 other fast charger on this unit but still the charging is very slow.

    3) other bugs I can live with like some users posted ie Google bar, adaptive brightness issue, sound problems etc.

    What can we do about the slow charging and battery drain??? Please advise.
