Addendum: some companies like to do "planned obsolescence" where devices are planned to decay and new devices are bought instead. ASUS may have accidentally made an phone that have the potential to last for ages, including the LCD screen that does not burn in, and the camera design that, in the case of a failed motor, can be pried out by our thumbs. Should ASUS think that they are giving us too much and intentionally nerf our device, notify us so that we unlock our devices immediately with waiting for potential software updates that won't come if the company is intentionally hindering the device.
In previous posts I have point out exactly what ASUS should do to have a good public image. Now, I point out what ASUS should do to maximize profit. If you inform us that planned obsolescence is indeed the cause of the nerfing, we'll unlock our device so that it is no longer eligible for official repair service, and you may further cut cost down.
I have given what ASUS can do in the two ends of the spectrum of good company vs bad company. Staying in the middle won't work. Reply immediately.
