After the new update, the audio improved. But I have noticed one thing. When I turn on the phone, without touching the volume button, the audio is amazingly good, but the instant I hit the volume button, the audio quality worsens, returning to the same sound as before the update. You have to restart the phone again to recover the quality of the last update and not touch the volume button, I don't know if I have explained myself correctly. Please check this and fix it.


  • This is likley happening due to audiowizard taking over the moment you touch the button.

  • Can confirm it.

    Also the latest .134 ruined the speaker quality even further, and i think it lower the Ohmp of the headphone DAC.

    ASUS really needs to fix it asap, that's not the product we were promised or bought.

    With this latest update, this button issue has been fixed. I still think the audio is good. I'm based on a comparison (phones in hand) to rog3 and my girlfriend's iPhone 13pro, and I guarantee you that the audio is not bad. But there are many opinions for this... so, I prefer not to comment more. The important thing is that the volume button bug is now fixed. One bug less.

  • May the cope be with you.

    @PhenomFX Rog5 users are begging for an audio fix since over 1 year and got nothing. @waxy78611 is still furious about how the audio has went downhill on his rog5 and the only way to get the quality back is to revert to an insecure old as hell firmware. Do absolutely not expect it to get fixed or finetuned, it will stay as is.

  • Man that sucks, so far 2022 was not a good year for Android high-end segment.

  • I wouldnt say that, its clear that the resources went to the zenfone this year, from what I can tell it seems like a pretty dank phone. Nothing Phone also being supriringly good, then the Lenovo Y90 being an amazing gaming phone as well. As far as the Rog phone goes, I think the series is dead since the Rog5. Rog 3 was the last truly innovative and over the top phone. Rog5 has abolished everything that made the Rog special, no more twinview, no more mobile dock, no more fun.
