Microphone, notifications, Camera issues

Star III
Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:
Model Name: Zenfone 9
Firmware Version: 2040.2040
Rooted or not: Yes. But issue was there before root also
Frequency of Occurrence: Always
APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): Latest Duo Lingo, Falou etc
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.

- While mic works fine on camera, calls (Both on/off loudspeaker), 3rd party camera apps, whatsapp recording, the mic doesn't work at all with some apps like Shazam, DuoLingo or Falou. This is bringing me on my nerves!
- Even when notification sound is turned to zero, some apps like facebook notifications make sound. I don't understand why it is following the ringer volume and not the notification volume.
- When I get a notification while I am using an app. The app dissapears and I see the homescreen wallpaper until the the pop up notification is gone or swiped. [Automatically fixed. Don't know how. It wasn't an update]

- Camera shutter is slow af. A minor movement of the subject ruins the image. Cannot take pictures of little kids or pets at all!
-Camera oversharpens images. Much more than Pixels. Mostly its okay but it ruins some pictures everyday.
- Smoothes skin too much in portrait mode, even when beauty mode is turned off.

While there are other issues too, I find these to be fixable and most annoying.

Asus please look into it!


Hey @absartariq123, thanks for bringing this to our attention, we've forwarded the issue to the R&D team.

I have noticed that sometimes, on calls, they tell me that they suddenly do not listen to me, with perfect coverage and without moving. I do not know what can be due.

It happens to someone else?

- correction: "5G wouldn't shift to 4G sometimes. That would lead to missing calls (both telecom calls and whatsapp calls)" It could be battery optimization/background management problem because other notifcations are also delayed. A lot of times I would receive notifications upon unlocking the phone.
So I have turned off "background app management." Will test it a few days and let you know the results.
Also testing with "auto 5G" option in the settings to figure the problem

- Setting search is slow. Sometimes it wouldn't search at all:

I'm not rooted and also have been experiencing bad microphone quality. Since switching from my Pixel 3, regardless of how I make a phone call people tell me they can't hear me or my voice is muffled.

Is anyone taking a look into this?
