Asus ZenFone 8 flip + portable usb-c monitor won't work?

A few days I am testing my new Asus ZenFone 8 flip and every day I find more and more things that disappoint me.

So today I've found out the phone doesn't support connection with my portable monitor with usb type-c (you know, this new generation of fancy slim monitors).

I plug in the phone expecting screen casting (mirroring) to the monitor but nothing happens.

I looked through Settings, including developer settings and found nothing that can address it.

Am I doing anything wrong?

Or this just proves again my conclusion that Asus did not bother to develop a decent device for the price?

    That's because Zenfone 8 and 8 flip only support USB 2.0

    For video out to work you need USB 3.1 or later.

    You have to use screen cast via wireless if the monitor support it or look for another phone that support USB 3 like ROG Phone series for example. Even top-end Xiaomi only has USB 2.0 so you have to do some research
