    Kinda of a bummer that it'll take so long, but at least we know it's coming. I'd say that's good news, everyone.
  • BPM
    @Gustav_ASUS @Irene2_ASUS Any info on this?
  • BPM
    Any ETA on this update? Will there be any other fixes/updates included?
  • BPM
    It's been mentioned before in multiple threads, but all four ROG Phones (and the Zenfone 7 line) make use of Pixelworks' visual processing. While nothing official has been stated (I think), but it's been believed that due to licensing Pixelworks' technology, ASUS cannot simply calibrate the screen as they please. Which if…

    If it's not on Amazon India, then I dunno what to tell you. I guess see if you can find something similar. Just search for something like "ROG Phone 3 case".
  • BPM
    To me, it's a great phone. The only real issue with it is the screen calibration (upon which there are COUNTLESS threads about here). Other than that, performance, battery life, etc. have been great. It's certainly a lot better than the ROG Phone 5 from what I've seen. Can't say how it compares to phones from other…

    Depends on what your needs/wants are. Generally speaking, the hardware is pretty good, and should be able to handle any games/apps thrown at it for the next several years. Mobile games rarely push graphical advancements, due to needing to work with as many devices as possible (including both Android and iOS). Software…

    This is the case that I currently use. The padding on the sides seem to be decent, and it extends up a bit so you don't have to worry about the phone falling on the screen if you drop it. Back is clear so Aura RGB shows. There's space cut out for the Air Triggers, side port, air vent, and mics. Bottom USB-C port has a flap…

    Ah, gotcha. I thought that was just about the LED thing.
  • BPM
    To be clear: my issue is less about the notification LED. I don't care that much about it. My main issue is just getting notifications, period (as first noted in my comment on August 15, and further detailed on August 31). I kinda feel like this is getting ignored and overlooked... almost a month since I've created this…

    It's a system app. Go to the 3-dot menu and select "Show system".

    Screen casting is working for me in both of the cases I tried. First test: Samsung QLED TV (from 2019). It took several tries to connect. Kept failing to connect. Tuned the TV off and back on, then it connected. Second test: Roku Premiere+ on another TV. Failed to connect the first attempt, but connected just fine the…

    Negative. Haven't done a factory reset since I really haven't had any issues until this started happening. Would kinda hate to do so, since it's such a hassle to have to set things back up again, heh... Was kinda hoping there'd be another solution before I have to resort to the nuclear option. 🙃 Though, I'll keep it in…

    Alright, so it happened again, and this time I took some screenshots to help illustrate the situation. In the above screenshot, you'll see the Clock notification is there, and that the timer is now over 4 minutes past when it should've gone off, but didn't. Only after I launch the Clock app does the timer alarm finally go…
  • BPM
    Still having issues with this... I set a timer in the Clock app, and it didn't go off. In this case, the notification is still there, and it showed it was 2 minutes past the set interval, but it didn't go off until AFTER I switch to the Clock app. I've gone into the app info, made sure battery optimization is disabled, all…

    If the phone shows "Tencent Games" on the back, then it's a Chinese model.
  • BPM
    I think most companies roll out OTA updates in stages, so that everyone isn't downloading them at the same time. I guess that would also give them time to respond to issues from early updaters and halt the OTA before everyone gets it (you may have seen before where a company stops an update from going out to everyone after…
  • BPM
    That said, to ensure it isn't a hardware issue, you'll want to run the SMMI test. 1 - Open the ASUS calculator app on your phone. 2 - Type in .12345+ 3 - Tap = 4 - Select Single Test For this issue, you'll want to run the three "Aura and Bump LED" tests at the bottom of the list.
  • BPM
    If you're using the Chinese model (says Tencent Games on the back) flashed with the worldwide firmware, you will not be able to get OTA updates, as that hardware configuration is not officially supported by the worldwide firmware. However, you can still continue to manually update. The most recent update released (Android…

    Do NOT do this! Talking to the old man (who teaches you to catch a Weedle) actually triggers a flag that'll make the color banding WORSE. It's such a devious trap, that I can't believe the developers did that intentionally.
  • BPM
    Well, seeing how ASUS never released Android 9 for this phone, I'm going say that's virtually impossible. You would basically need to port the OS yourself to the phone, ensuring it's compatible with all aspects of the phone's hardware. Since I'd imagine the demand for an OLD OS is extremely niche, you're probably not going…

    And then find Mew under the truck in Vermilion City. This is key to unlocking the power of screen calibration.
  • BPM
    Well, that's clearly from a Samsung phone... Samsung has a way of making their products work better with their own phones compared to others. Not to mention, Samsung heavily customizes their Android skin, for better or for worse. What about another non-Samsung phone? Or what about non-Samsung buds on a Samsung phone?
  • BPM
    So, your issue is that you cannot even install it. I wouldn't say something "isn't working" when you can't even install it in the first place... Have you tried checking what the Play Store says is the error? And just making sure, but you haven't maxed out the storage on your phone, right?
  • BPM
    Under the Bluetooth quick setting icon? Or somewhere else?
  • BPM
    Works fine for me. What's the issue you're having? Saying "it's not working" explains nothing.
  • BPM
    Could you elaborate on what you mean? Where is it NOT showing the battery level when it should be? I wasn't even aware that this was something Android (11) was supposed to do, but I just checked myself (I have the Galaxy Buds+): Under the Bluetooth quick setting, it shows the battery level of my earbuds. Is that what…
  • BPM
    Ah, thanks for the correction. I hadn't tried them (haven't even unlocked my phone yet), so I only guessed at their successfulness. That said, checking Pixelworks' website, apparently all four ROG Phones use their tech (as well as the ZenPhone 7). Some other notable partners listed, including the Black Shark line, the…

    Thanks for the response, Gustav. Having a bit of software development history myself, I'm well aware of the difficulty of fixing issues (unlike a lot of the posters here who seem to think any issue can be fixed overnight like magic). However, there are user-made fixes that do seem to completely fix the display calibration…
