@Anders_ASUS hey
There has been a lot of complaints about camera performance lately and gcam is also not supported right now , worst of them all stock camera performance has reduced with updates!! If lot of people are complaining about cameras at the same time , there must be a reason right?
I'm an ex-5z user and upgraded to 6z hoping for better results , but its worse...
I know that asus is not google and comparing with google is unfair , you yourself had told us that . But what about comparing with your own phones? I compared to last year's zenfone 5z with the 6z and results aren't even comparable in lowlight , even in daylight 5z seems to have better colors and exposure control...
Don't trust me? I've attached documents of different conditions..
Lowlight comparisons were done with night mode in 6z and auto mode in 5z , i used night mode in 6z since it doesn't have ois and 5z might get an unfair advantage... But night mode is supposed to compensate for ois right? U guys yourself have told that in an old post..
See the results for yourself.. comparison done with your own previous year phone and not with any expensive flagship or pixel , for reference 5z is selling for half the price of 6z now for 128gb variant..
See the attached docs and do the needful , dont vanish on me 😛

Thank you so much for your hard work. I know everybody is upset about the latest Android 10 update from 11/25/2019 and so was I but, I am very glad and thankful to hear that you guys are working on fixing the problems. Also, I said this in one of my own discussions and not many people spoke about it but the microphone has gotten extremely quiet. Now when I take videos on the Asus camera app or Snapchat, I have to almost shout to get a decent sound in the video. Any less and I don't be able to hear myself unless I max out the volume which I don't wanna do since I don't wanna damage the speakers. Anyways, I hope you can look into the microphone issue too along with all the other stuff! I wish you guys the best of luck and I will be looking forward to the next firmware update from you guys. Hope it fixes everything 🙂 Kindest regards - Branden.
