ASUS ZenFone 5Z is a device that can only be beautiful on the outside (even if its design is outdated today).
On the inside, it looks like it's made of papier-mâché, it can lose connections with a simple system upgrade.
It has the same processor as the competing flagships, but for some reason it doesn't behave in the same way. Even in performance mode (AI Boost) that until today I only saw drain battery.
By the way, an average battery that when not being drained by the AI Boost, for some reason is drained in standby mode, or even while in use (without any reason), but there is always some kind of drainage.
Basic cameras - Yes, basic! - that work even worse when combined with ASUS failed software. It's always better to take pictures with Gcam, there you have not only more quality, but the BASIC options that are missing in the native application.
The display that was incredibly better on Android 9, I don't know what happened for it to become, washed and unbalanced, on Android 10, nor do I want to try to explain.
...and next to the display, we have the touch panel - #&@%, the touch panel! Since the smartphone was born it doesn't work as it should, the %#[email protected] of the touch panel that I, along with other users, have been trying for months to improve, we got the attention of the moderators to bring improvements and we got some, but never stayed 100%. So, yes, it seems that we have another hardware failure. (Besides the antennas that don't capture signal, the cameras that don't focus...)
I wanted to believe that if we were to die with this dull ZenUI on Android 10, at least we would receive for the first time a stable version after all.
But that's it, our 5Zs will be abandoned with a system by half (as it always was), without functions we found in old INTERMEDIARIES (already listed by the other users above) and the basic functions throttling, like touch operation (on a smartphone, yes, basic function).
Is this how they expect to sell more of their new devices? They are already discredited in Brazil, not even Marcel Campos, who conquered the people with the premise of "imitating Apple", gets more to sell this bagasse around here.
Fix and implement everything, give another year of life to this smartphone, or there'll be no long live for ASUS on the market.
And, please, stop paying YouTubers to talk lies about your devices, it's embarassing to see the comment section!
android 11 on top of zen ui 6. will suite for this 2018 flagship
Asus should provide android 11 support for the #5z, atleast provide new zenUI features on top of a10. There is no features in current zenUI. 5z is the best phone so far i used.
Yes atleast the basics like Vo-Wifi & Arcore . These are VERY MUCH in the hands of ASUS , unless they want to pretend otherwise ... And stand to loose market share & brand loyality . Reminds me of a certain Chinese brand starting with "L" which started well but lost its fan base due to a silly/stubborn decision to not provide some basic features to its flagship .
one final request i have...
kindly Add Hd playbak in Amazon prime video
Thanksalot for soo much support on this thread i feel ASUS should note this that so many people desperately need this support for 5z to be unconditional this shows success of ASUS in 2018 please bring us ZENUI 7 or android 11 on top of zenui 6 and make 5z remarkable in coming future we have accepted alot till date from ASUS like watever they provided via updates or watever they have came upto for 5z in terms of features n all we never complained but ASUS should also accept the fact that nothing new they bought in 5z after A9 we can see just bug fixes and security patches since A9 i hope ASUS rethinks its policy before giving up with previous flagships its time to prove users ASUS
Also i feel right now smartphone market is so vast and competative in world that ASUS should cop-up with those brands and compete them strongly in this competative world
Please ASUS come on you can prove it to users you can do it ! 😊🤞 We still dont loose any hope on 5z
Exactly, Asus should change its policy in terms of software updates to compete with other smartphone brands.
Sdm845 still capable running Android 11
Asus can make old users happy with this surprise and can gain trust in Indian market and world wide.
This phone is absolutely perfect.
Hoping for best
I still have hope for 5z. I understand no Asus phones supports ViLTE then how 5z can. But VoWiFi. Sadly every new asus phones ( from 2018 onwards) supports VoWiFi except 5z.
Literally we 5z users really don't have any new feature(s) since Android 9. No night mode in Pixel Master camera app even though 5z has OIS. No Ar Core and then people who wants Prime videos to be played in HD not supported in 5z.
Then this infamous touch issue which is their since the inception of 5z.
I to Asus - Give something new to 5z users at least.
Its been 3 month since I brought this 5z and I'm really disappointed after not getting roll back for android 11 or zenui 7 and also we have camera sensor for night mode still we have lack of night mode and we don't have at core and prime HD and I'm feeling ghost touch issue also. If u guys could fix it I will definitely recommend Asus products to my friends
5Z atleast needs VoWifi to be called as a flagship or even a mid range flagship !
We really need it
Thank you @amitgarde3 for highlighting this. In 2019 Asus literally released 1 phone. The zenfone 6 apart from the sub 10k INR Zenfone Max M1 and M2. Even in 2018 max pro M1 and M2 were released apart from 5z. This year it will be ROG 3 and Zenfone 7, 7 pro. Its not like ASUS has a catalog to maintain like Samsung with 20 phones in every price range. Asus has revised its operating model greatly and currently it is even comparable to the likes of Apple, Google and Oneplus launching no more than 3-4 phones per year. Apple provides 5 years of support, Google gives a 3-4 year support. Even Oneplus gives 3 years of support. Samsung who releases literally 50 phones every year gives 2 major Android version updates and 3 years of security updates even for a budget phone like M31S.
Asus has 6 phones to maintain in 2020. 3 from 2019, 3 from 2020.
In comparison Oneplus has 9 phones to maintain in 2020 (6,6T,7,7 pro,7T,7T pro,8,8 pro, Nord); 11 considering upcoming 8T and 8T pro. We know all of these models will get updated till 2021 with the recent android versions.
If we took 5z from 2018, they will have 7 phones to maintain till 2021. Which is below any other brand. Honestly right now ASUS has the least number of devices. And 5z has sold quite a lot it did not flunk the market. It was a worthy Oneplus 6 competitor and a lot of people purchased it.
However it isn't like we can have a lot of expectations here but here's something we should have if ASUS plans to retain users long term.
You are right ASUS will stand stronger in front of other OEMS if they do it for 5z 🤞
Yes, ASUS should atleast give vowifi to its users.
Are they even listening us? What's happening guys?
I really need VoWiFi.
Even newer Zenfone 7 series got Real Time Information Systems for Gaming. Same as like ROG phones have.
If we 5z users get ZenUI 7 then maybe there'll be a Chance of getting "Real Time Info" system for games same as like Zenfone 7 series and ROG phones have.
They can even implement "Real Time Info" to 5z now.
They are watching each and every comments,don't know whether they will listen us or not :(
They should listen us i never loose hopes lets keep trying who knows if they change there strategy for one last time 🤞😅
At least the gpu drivers should be updated. We need at least the possibility to update them with root. I guess kernel has to be changed. Even Pocophone f1 received v464 gpu drivers. Without this Zenfone 5Z doesn't have its full potential. This powerful device doesn't have its justice
