    I think that just because an app is not shown in Recents does not mean that it has been killed or removed from memory. If you check in Settings/Storage & Memory/Memory And there touch "Memory used by apps" at the bottom you see all app…

    This why I always use a good flip case. Haven't cracked a phone ever, not even my old Xiaomi Mi Max, which was too big for my pockets, and was falling out several times a week.

    https://zentalk.asus.com/en/discussion/comment/32830#Comment_32830 Then what is the point of having a special fw to revert to Android 9, if the phone will be force-updated again soon anyway? I have never had this problem, i.e. with forced updates, …
  • cobben
    https://zentalk.asus.com/en/discussion/comment/32546#Comment_32546 ?? "eventually the software will be force updated to your phone for security" How/when does this kick in? Like M$ does with Win10. Unacceptable. You mean the customer will…

    Possibly related question: Which countries get the WW version and which get the EU version? An Asus rep said in a Swedish forum that all Z6 sold in Scandinavia are the WW version. Then what is the point of having a 'EU' version if it is not sold ev…

    https://zentalk.asus.com/en/discussion/comment/29805#Comment_29805 You are wrong: "Sometimes it shows data flow even though network is turned off, I know data can't flow if network is turned off."
  • cobben
    Even with mobile data turned off, and even with no sim card installed(!), your phone will immediately make and constantly maintain a 3G HPSA+ connection with a random operator to enable emergency calling. To see this connection you need to install s…

    https://zentalk.asus.com/en/discussion/comment/27959#Comment_27959 I'm guessing the fw is the same as WW, but the OTA was blocked for RU for awhile until something got approved. Here it is anyway: https://www.asus.com/ru/Phone/ZenFone-6-ZS630KL/Help…

    You can install the firewall app Netguard, and block ads via a hosts file in it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.faircode.netguard https://github.com/M66B/NetGuard/releases This doesn't work for all apps, some sneak in ads other way…

    https://zentalk.asus.com/en/discussion/comment/27592#Comment_27592 He supports only the latest stable and beta versions, so pick either. You can read through the release notes to see if he has changed anything important for you.

    Works fine in Firefox for me, both in Win10 and on my phones. No need for any apps.

    FairEmail has 4.8 in reviews on Playstore. For those that cannot see it in Playstore: https://us.v-cdn.net/6031231/uploads/755/LWDA6LOGV2JI.jpg

    https://zentalk.asus.com/en/discussion/comment/27456#Comment_27456 The developer of FairEmail has blocked some countries in Playstore apparently, but the app is available everywhere on GitHub: https://github.com/M66B/FairEmail/releases

    Try FairEmail, an open source email client focused on privacy, and with no ads at all. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.faircode.email

    This seems to be a way to soft-brick your phone. If you have gestures enabled, and try to enable one-hand mode for the first time, then you become trapped in the one-hand tutorial, with no way to exit. Rebooting does not help.
  • cobben
    First above all you should get a new sim card from your operator. We have had several weird problems that have been caused by the sim card. Once the girl in the shop took one look at our old sim card and said; "It's scratched the wrong way - it…

    https://zentalk.asus.com/en/discussion/comment/26547#Comment_26547 No idea as to aptx, mine use only SBC or AAC,. AAC works well, but had to choose it in developer settings first.
  • cobben
    I had the problem of the earbuds connecting separately with my new Zenear BT. It is not a problem with the phone. The right one should pair with the left one first, and then only the left one pairs with the phone. To get them to work correctly I had…

    https://zentalk.asus.com/en/discussion/comment/25818#Comment_25818 Possibly, I don't use it. But here they were complaining about it becoming noticeably worse after the android 10 upgrade. Especially with DC dimming activated, but the Z6 doesn't ha…
  • cobben
    There seems to be a general problem with Chrome "stuttering" in android 10. Someone was just complaining about that on the Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro in the Swedroid forum.
  • cobben
    Might this problem be that the buttons at the bottom of the keyboard, being near the bottom of the screen, are competing for "touch" with the Navigation bar gestures/hidden buttons there?

    I have no idea how this works: Version Android Q downgrade to Android P https://www.asus.com/Phone/ZenFone-6-ZS630KL/HelpDesk_BIOS/
  • cobben
    Can you copy the FOTA File to the phone while it is in fastboot mode? If you can, try just rebooting it then - it might find the file and try to install it all on its own.
  • cobben
    Wel,, I am not an GPS expert. You might try turning off "Google location accuracy" in the settings, so your device is only using the GPS, and see if that makes any difference.. If you would like me to test something, I could do that. I ha…
  • cobben
    You are not using Google Maps when running only this GPSTest app. There are some other problems in Sweden with Google Maps, but not GPS related I think. I haven't been travelling much at all since I got the Z6, but it worked fine with Maps the few t…

    Herr is mine done just now. It starts out with an "Error"of 5-6m., and after 10 minutes or so gets down under 3m. My error in fixing my actual location might be 1m. or more. https://us.v-cdn.net/6031231/uploads/003/XEEC8LPUCUT5.jpg
  • cobben
    My Z6 30E is still working fine. I have the same GPS hardware version I get an average "Error" of under 3m. just now with the GPSTest app, less than with my old Xiaomi (4.3m). Whatever that means (in SE Sweden). I did get rid of the Chine…

    The India version already had VoLTE with Android 9 I noticed. ??? "This is Indian version of Asus 6Z. Here it comes with Volte option." https://forum.xda-developers.com/zenfone-6-2019/help/fast-charging-problem-asus-6z-t3995599
  • cobben
    Reboot ar least once, if you haven't already.
