Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:

  1. Model Name: Zenfone 7
  2. Firmware version: WW_30.41.69.51
  3. Rooted or not: not
  4. Frequency of Occurrence:
  5. APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app):

In addition to information above, please also provide as much details as you can, e.g., using scenario, what troubleshooting you've already done, screenshot, etc.


Can we expect the Android 12 Beta program for Zenfone 7? Noticed Zenfone 8 got it today so wanted to check if we can also expect and apply for it soon.

    I'm worried they're going to abandon our phone to be honest. The Zenfone 8 has gotten a few A11 updates straight after release already and we're still stuck with an issue-ridden A11 that hasn't been updated in a few weeks despite all the reports of the bugs. Not really surprising, but disappointing, that they're seemingly putting more of their resources to the new phone.

  • Not sure what to say... Zenfone 8 flip is a rebranded zenfone 7 with updated SOC... So they did not had much to work on that, beside the drivers.... So only zenfone 8 is a new phone ...

    I don't think so man. Personally, I have 0 issues with this update so I don't think it's fair to say that the update is full of issues. I think the issues might be specific to some phones and some specific installed app(s). We got the last firmware update less than a month ago so it's too early to expect another one, but the word was that we will get more frequent updates after A11 release. We'll just have to wait and see. Better to release a fleshed out update than a broken one. Regarding A12 Beta, I'm curious to know when we can expect the start of beta testing (if there is a plan for beta testing).

  • I am really curios, do you use gmail on your phone, or google calendar? Do you receive notifications? I am using google and I am expecting at least 10 mails per day and I have at least one calendar notification per day. If I turn on all battery optimization I am getting emails once per 2 days instead of around 15 minutes( I am receiving all emails once per day for around 2 days ...) Which is unacceptable. Calendar notifications 0. Weather updates 0 unless I open the app. Google news 0 unless I open the app. Mostly I get 0 notifications unless I open the app that was supposed to send me notifications.... So this makes notifications push worthless on a 700 euro phone ...

    I have a smartphone just to talk and even that with no VOLTE so why did I pay 700 euro? To go in each app and see if I have a message or not?

    Try and set a reminder from your calendar app and see if you still have 0 bugs. I am not trying to be clever I , and I'm sure a lot of others, would like to know if this bug is phone by phone and not an OS or Google issue so we would really appreciate your response

  • feljofeljo Level 1

    Yes, I use everything. Calendar, Gmail, Weather, etc. and notifications work fine for everything. No problems since A11 update. That's why I'm saying that the issue must be specific.

  • I simply cannot believe it. Since apparently calendar issue is a google issue and has not been fixed... And for the others I don't know how it could be specific to me... same hardware same software....what could be specific?

  • feljofeljo Level 1

    Hm really don't know. I tested it throught the day by setting a few reminders and observing other notifications as well and everything was running as it should. All notifications arrived.

    Ok interesting just to be sure we are taking about the same issue,,tasks, goals and events in the calendar app work properly it's just,, REMINDERS,, that don't seem to work eg notify you by sound or visually.

    The only way we,as in the bulk of ZenFone 7 users, can get a notification for a reminder that you set is by uninstalling updates on the Google calendar app. That is manually set , apparently it works if you talk to your phone,eg the Google assistant, but not if you type a reminder in

    How are you doing it ? It's been suggested that it's a Google bug that is specific to the ZenFone 7 but I am not 100% convinced of that yet . Keep your test results coming In it really helps everyone on the forum

    Unbelievable but it works. I changed the colour of my reminder notifications from the blueish purplish colour I had been using to the, tomato colour, and low and behold it works. I checked three times to be sure but it definitely works. I now get notifications for reminders from my calendar app.

    The only other thing I did was to set a reminder using the Google assistant to see if it works and it did so maybe that kind of reset it I don't know but it works again all of a sudden
