I have the Zenfone 5Z and the Zenfone 6 now I have the Zenfone 7; my question is this the Zenfone 6 has gotten the update to OS11 but not the Zenfone 7, what going on?

    We are all told SOON and also told to be patient. Patients is not one of my strong points either. Now that the rog 5 is all but ready hopefully the powers that be will turn their attention to the zenfone 7

    Official A11 is close. It had to be postponed because we found a bug that we needed to fix first but it should be released next month if everything goes well. We're grateful for your patience

  • Will you guys give us the option of using the main lens as the selfie cam in third party apps?

  • I think you'll find that is normal as the zenfone 6 obviously came out at least a year before the zenfone 7 so it makes sense that it would get A11 first.

    I don't know much about the development side but the zenfone 6 runs UI 6 which has been out long enough to get it running perfectly so I am assuming that it's easier to modify googles A11 for it as apossed to the new UI 7

  • The ZF7(P) has really caught my eye but unfortunately it hasn't been released in the US nor does it seem like it will be. But I have seen some listings on newegg (although very marked up) and amazon (more reasonable prices) and assuming the price will go down after a while I would really like to get it, but first I have some questions for those that own it:

    First, if anyone else in the US has managed to get it - how's the service? I checked and it seems like it works with no issues at all on t mobile and if I'm remembering right it it should work on verizon too.

    Second, and this is for anyone that has it, not just in the US - how's your experience with the phone? What do you like, what do you dislike, anything that surprised you about it?

    Third - what kinds of customization options and/or features does Asus include and offer with ZenUI? And while we're on the topic of software, how are they with updates?

    Lastly, the listings I saw looked like the base 7 is actually significantly cheaper than the pro - I personally don't care at all about the 865+ vs the normal one, the extra storage and ram is nice but 128/6 is perfectly fine, but my main concern is the OIS (or lack thereof). Does it make such a big difference that I should keep an eye on the pricing for the pro, in your opinion?

    Thanks for any help you guys are able to offer! It's between the zenfone and the xperia 5 ii for me, and although I am committed to the headphone jack, it's just so expensive.
