ASUS needs to improve their firmware update notes

Can you not provide more details about what gets fixed in updates? It seems like an afterthought. They are typically vague. Case in point? One of the updates to the ZenFone 6 enabled EIS to the 4K 60FPS video recording. That's actually huge. Is it mentioned? Nope. Not only do you have a bunch of review videos showing non EIS video recordings, but you also have no communication about the issue and it being resolved in a software update. This doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Give details. Is is that painful to do?

  •  I agree with you on this. Detailed change notes should be provided along with update announcements. We dont know the exact changes until we explore our device

    Even if we try and figure out what has been fixed or added it's next to impossible. On the surface it seems like nothing other than sheer laziness. Sorry to say that, but it's like lazy man's notes. I think ZenFone users would appreciate knowing about all the improvements that you bring with each update. "Improved system stability". Alrighty then...

    Yes, Agreed they should add more detail on released note.

    We thank you for your valuable feedback. We have already started to improve which you can clearly see with the latest frimware for ROG Phone and Zenfone 6. But we will of course continue improving so this applies to all new releases.
  • @Anders_ASUS please implement this for Asus zenfone 5z too. Please give us detail update notes and improve the camera on 5z in future updates.

  • They have improved, but how could they not list the fact 4K video 60FPS EIS was added? That's a substantial fix/update yet it's not listed. Most people would miss that detail. Think of the ZenFone 6 reviews online that review the 4K recording on the older firmware that didn't have EIS. These details matter and I realize ASUS is doing a great job and trying to improve. To me an EIS update is huge. Am I right?

    60FPS 4k video with EIS is definitely huge, Sadly i found it while tweaking with camera settings and not from update log.
  • You're right! A small miss from our side and we will improve. Promise ;)
