GPS indoor = non functional

Star I
Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:
Model Name: Zenfone 9
Firmware Version: WW_32.2050.2050.34
Rooted or not: no
Frequency of Occurrence: everytime
APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): Pokemon Go, Google Maps, GPS essentials
In addition to information above, please also provide as much details as you can, e.g., using scenario, what troubleshooting you've already done, screenshot, etc.
I only get 2 satellites when trying to find any satellites indoors via GPS essentials app ... I don't get ANY GPS for google maps or Pokemon go when I'm not seeing the sky ... even some small windows on the roof there is NO GPS ...
Is my device defective? Or is it an ASUS Zenfone 9 feature and more people are having issues.
What I tried: reseting my phone, change accuracy, activate full GNSS measuring
Nothing did help ...

Well, this is kinda expected. In general, the GPS does not work indoors. Of course, occasionally you might get a GPS fix without direct sky visibility, but it is not what you should expect every time.

Ok? So why does every other smartphone gets GPS reception where I'm siting? (top floor, lots of windows in the ceiling) .. is this some kind of joke?
Even an 80$ smartphone gets GPS in here
