Model Name: 6Z
Firmware Version: Newest (i think)
Rooted or not: Not
Frequency of Occurrence: Twice, second time dead.
Warranty is passed. Over 2 years since purchase.
For the second and maybe last time i am back on my samsung galaxy A5 from 2017 which works somewhat ok.
My 6Z just died today for no reason that i know of. It worked perfectly fine before i put it in my pocket. When i tried to turn it on again, nothing happened. Tried holding the power button, still no response.
Then i tried power button + volume down for "safe boot mode" or something. It turned on and i proceeded to boot by pressing the power button once.
When the asus logo came up, it kinda froze for a while and then the logo glitched followed by a black screen.
This has happened once some time ago, but it started working fine again.
I was not able to turn it on at all before like 2 hours. Tried charging and different button combinations.
After that it suddenly tried to boot after a single power button press, and rebooted 3 times before success. I could get directly to the homescreen, as it skipped the "phone starting" stage after login. I could see a notification about it checking my "samsung sd card"??
And then the screen turned black while it still was lit and navigation buttons still showing. I did another power button + vol down hold and it just stuck to a reboot loop.
It reacts randomly to different buttom presses and sometimes blacks out completly.
I have read that closed discussion where it concludes motherboard broken, and i believe the same happened to me.
I will not send my phone to some repair shop again as it took 3 months just to get my screen replaced last time. (Quality repairshop btw). There is no local asus support center or alike in my country. I simply don't trust putting money into this sketchy phone anymore...
Im just wondering if i ever can trust asus enough for a 8Z or 8Z flip? From looking around zentalk, the 8Z seems to have an absurd amount of problems too?
